1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Doll Dress on: April 28, 2005 12:37:30 PM
I wanted to have a try at doing some thread crochet, but wasn't interested in doing a doily, so I decided on a "Barbie" dress.  One of my co-workers brings his adorable 2 1/2 yo granddaughter to the office alot so I will be giving it to her later today.

For some reason I think that my pics maybe stretched out a bit.
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Mother's Day / Tip if you have an older or single mom on: April 12, 2005 12:36:52 PM
My mother is getting up there in years (74) and is widowed.  So she often needs things done around the house.  My siblings and In-law sibs all go to mom's on Mother's day prepared to spend the day working and doing all the little things that need done.

We take bedding plants that the smaller children and less brawny can plant for her. We paint, trim trees, and generally clean up and fix up anything she wants done.

She loves this and really looks forward to it!  She starts planning ahead of time so that she doesn't forget anything!
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My caplet on: January 10, 2005 11:14:18 AM
I made this caplet from an old pattern for a poncho that had a collar and was much longer with arm slits in the bottom.  I left off the collar and used some eyelash yarn with the same yarn as the caplet to make a tie.  And then stopped at about an inch above the elbows. 

The one below shows the stitch detail.  Long double crochet shells.
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / felting / fulling shrinkage on: January 10, 2005 10:53:02 AM
I attempted to full some slippers that I had crocheted with 100% virgin wool over the weekend.  The first pair are salvageable, but the second ones will take quite a bit of work!  I started with an ugly pea green that I tried to dye black, as you can almost see frome the pic it turned a varigated dark green and black, that was ok.  But After I had crocheted them and put them in the washer to full them they came out narrow and with little shrinkage in the length.  The 2nd one ended up longer than I had crocheted it.  Has any one else noticed that crocheted items tend to shrink more in one direction or another?

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Hook handle on: December 16, 2004 06:06:18 AM
While my 7 yo was sick yesterday, I did a marathon session on an afghan that will be a Christmas present.  Needless to say my hand started to cramp.  Then all of a sudden it hit me how to make an easy handle for my hook to reduce the cramping. FIMO clay!  Here is a pic.  I put a glob on the handle then started crocheting with it to get it to fit my hand, then baked it to harden it when I was comfortable with the grip.  It may not be real pretty, but is much more comfortable.  I will be doing this with all of my hooks now!
