1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / variation of the Catherine Wheel on: January 18, 2011 06:53:25 AM
I first saw the Catherine Wheel on YouTube a couple of years ago.
 Finally got around to working it up, but I put a few variations on the pattern,
which I almost always do.

I used Red Heart Super Saver, G/6 hook and the finished piece is about 4 x 6

Thanks for looking

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Lizard Ridge Afghan on: November 04, 2010 10:28:00 AM
Well, I finally finished it.  Took me almost two months due to apathy and a lot of frogging.  I do like it, but if asked to make it for anyone, let me just say....it'll take A LOT of BIG bucks to do so.

Knitted with size 9 needles, using mostly RHSS, greens are Bernat.

3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / knitting needles on: October 02, 2010 03:14:19 PM
I finally got around to organizing my knitting needles and now I have 3 needles that don't have a mate.  I saw on etsy someone made bracelets out of em (not something that I would wear).  Anyone have any other ideas?

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / single knitting needle on: September 18, 2010 08:14:13 PM
What to do with a single needle? or 3....

I finally organized my knitting needles and I have  3 without a partner (size 4, 6 and 10.5).  Being someone that hates to throw anything away that may have a 'second life,' started wondering if anyone knew of anything to do with a single needle?  only thing I can think of is to try to make an afghan needle from them.  Anyone else have any ideas?

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knit picture afghan on: September 16, 2010 01:13:06 PM
I am experimenting with a picture afghan.   The problem I am running into is proportion.  Using knitpro gives me a graphical representation of the picture, but as you all know, knit stitches are NOT perfectly square.  Does anyone know of a free program that will let me input the guage and will graph the picture?

Thanks for help in advance.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / help from someone that has done the Lizard Ridge pattern on: September 13, 2010 08:29:58 AM
I need some input from someone that has worked the Lizard Ridge.  I need some advice on the short rows (no surprise, right ? Smiley ).  Its not that I'm finding it difficult to knit this row, I just want to make sure I'm doing the second part correctly.  (Closing of the gaps).  I've been  purling the wraps on the right side of the wave, but in a video I found on YouTube, it looks like the wraps are knitted on both sides of the wave.

Any input would be great or if someone could post a closeup photo of their afghan, so that I can see what it's supposed to look like.

Thanks in advance

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Afghan for my sister on: January 06, 2010 03:13:27 PM
This is one of 5 afghans I made for my sisters and Mother.   The others are crocheted and made from Red Heart.   This one is knitted and made from cotton Peaches and Creme (I think that's the name)

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Afghans for my sisters and Mother ** NOW WITH PICS! ** on: January 06, 2010 02:38:48 PM

I just finished the last of 5 afghans for my sisters and my Mother.  Four were crocheted and one knitted. They are not presents for any particular holiday or event, I just have a lot of free time and needed to use up a lot of yarn.  The crocheted ones are  made of Red Heart.  All were my faves as I was making them, but I'm not sure which is my fave now that I'm done. With the exception of the Prairie Star, I created the pattern or modified an existing pattern.  

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / sc adult hat on: October 24, 2009 11:57:17 AM
Can someone please point me to an online pattern for a single crochet adult hat. please?  A spiral design would be a bonus, but not necessary.  TIA!

10  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / stitch-in-the-ditch vs shadow quilting on: February 28, 2009 03:37:56 PM
I'm starting the hand-quilting of my lastest quilt top (attic windows).  I had decided that I would do stitch-in-the-ditch instead of a shadow quilt that I usually do.  I just finished the first block and I'm ... not really happy with the way the top looks.  I just doesn't look quilted.   Any input?
