2  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Latest News / Re: Re: Re: Craftster Site Announcement on: December 07, 2019 08:53:45 AM

What I always liked about Craftster compared to my local craft groups is that the Craftster community isn't judgmental about creating something out of nothing. It's all about creativity and joy and a beautiful end result. I've knitted with re-used yarn, I've quilted with fabric from worn clothing, scraps, old sheets, cheap cotton yardage. I've altered thrift store clothes and done loads of visible and invisible mending. In the real life quilting group that I only went to a few times because everyone was so nasty, your project was only liked if you bought the name brand fabrics and the patterns from the "right" designers. I've seen true works of art on Craftster that probably cost next to nothing in money, only a lot of love, time and effort, and everyone is always so nice. I love the true DIY spirit in this place and I wish I had been able to spend more time here.

That bears repeating.

I want to say thank you to all of the craftsters who made Craftster what it was. I was never all that active, but I always liked knowing Craftster was here for inspiration, crafting advice, and just plain enjoyment. It will be missed.

The Canadian sitcom Corner Gas has a character who is always doing something with yarn--sometimes knitting and sometimes crocheting. There is even an episode where she bets she can give it up, and it turns out she can't.
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Free Crochet Books on: April 30, 2017 07:07:53 PM
I have enjoyed a lot of books since I joined OpenLibrary last fall, even browsed some vintage craft and knitting books, but it never occurred to me to search for crochet books until a few days ago. Turns out there are currently over two hundred available for borrowing; that's less than the number of knitting or sewing books, but I'd still say it's a good resource.

Of the several I've looked through, the crochet book I like best is Crazy Crocheting, a book for children that emphasizes creativity. Not everyone would like the late '70s vibe, but I like that it encourages children (or adults) to play around and create their own designs right from the start. I'm glad there's a variety of stuff like this available in digital form now.

OpenLibrary is free to join. You can borrow up to five books at a time, each for two weeks at a time. I usually read books in my web browser, but they are also available as PDFs or epubs.

Patty_o_furniture, I usually dislike themed Christmas trees, but your HP tree is awesome. I especially like the scarf garland; it really ties the tree together.

Just a passing reference, but it made me laugh:

In the Rifftrax of The Devil's Hand, the blonde devil cultist explains how she called the "hero" of the movie to her with, "It's a simple process of thought projection or thought transference."

Rifftrax response: "Every girl learns it in Home Ec for the Evil. It comes after crocheting with human hair."

I don't know if it is what you are looking for, but Simplicity 1166, one of its releases of slightly updated versions of vintage patterns, has a cloth bra top that closes with a button in front. The original version of the pattern was from the 1950s.

Never too late makes a good rallying cry. Okay, I'm in. Since January is half over, that means I need to do one project a week for the rest of the year. My main goal is to use up some stash (mostly fabric and yarn) and to get back into the habit of regular crafting, because I'm happier and less stressed when I'm making things.

First project is to finish off some things left half done on my sewing table and in my knitting stuff from last year. Beyond that I have no firm plans, just vague notions.
