Wool-Ease, but I attempted to felt it, too.

I second the hat project.  Both my brother and my dad love when I make hats for them.

When I first looked at the scarf, I really didn't like it.  It grew on me, though!  Took me one afternoon and one evening to finish.

I used Wool-Ease in White Frost because it was sort of glittery.  I think you can see the shimmery bits in the photos.

I'm definitely joining in.  I have several scarves done already.  I have a lot more to go!  Ah, the joys of Christmas...

I just remembered!  One night, I was watching the Oblongs on Adult Swim and caught the episode where Milo dresses in drag and joins the Little Amazons.  He starts crocheting and when his father sees him, he asks him to crochet a noose so he can hang himself. 
26  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: soften Red Heart yarn? on: September 04, 2006 11:29:58 PM
I'm a fan of Caron's Simply Soft, as well.  It's perfect for hats, but it tends to spilt after a lot of wear.  I absolutely love TLC Essentials for scarves.  It's a soft, almost fluffly acrylic and it runs anywhere from two to three dollars.  It comes in beautiful colors, too. 

This probably isn't the best way to treat a handmade scarf or hat, but after handwashing any item I make from a rougher-feeling yarn I soak it in warm water and liquid fabric softener for about ten minutes.  (The fabric softener breaks down cotton over time, and I'm guessing it does the same with acrylics.)  I rinse the item well and hang it to dry or put it in one of those mesh laundry bags and stick it in the dryer on delicate or gentle.

Fckadog has a good idea.  I think it's called a double foundation chain or something similar.  It works perfectly when you need a stretchy hem. 
28  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help Adding room to waistband. on: August 08, 2006 04:05:05 PM
Ooh, I'm glad I found this post! 

I bought several pairs of jeans in my size, and found that two pairs had a smaller waistband than the rest.  (I have a big belly, but kinda slim hips and thighs.) 

This is what I'm trying:  I slit the waistband at the side of the jeans down to the little button-type thing at the pocket.  I'm going to add a kinda pizza shaped piece of fabric with a bit of elastic at the top.  I'm going to do it to both sides, so it evens out. 

Hope this helps!   Smiley

Haha, I always thought it looked like a slightly cartoonish penis.

Wow!  I love the use of black in contrast with the stark color on her face.  Gorgeous!
