1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Common Crochet Hook for Amis? on: October 29, 2011 09:20:50 PM
So I've decided to spread my love of amis and have decided to host a panel at a convention for the soul purpose of teaching people how to make them. Now, I will be supplying some of my own materials for the panel, and was wondering what the most common crochet hook size people use? Typically I've used a J or I, but I know each one is a little different.

2  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Jolly Roger ... Modified? on: March 12, 2011 09:50:12 PM
I am currently in the process of working on the Jolly Roger sweater for my hubby. Currently using Lamb's Pride Cotton Fleece and using an H hook, it's rather fun! However, with the hdc I'm doing, there are holes! I don't know if this is due to the hook and yarn I'm using or what, but I've decided that this will be a spring/summer sweater for him rather than fall/winter...

Okay anyway, instead of the skull and crossbones, DH wants me to put a bottle cap on it. He thinks it would be neat if I were to use a different yarn than I'm using to make the sweater out of currently, which makes me sort of apprehensive...

Also, anyone know of a good way to grid out the bottle cap design so I can easily implement it in to the pattern?

...Haven't really deviated from a crochet pattern ever, so it sort of scares me. Any help in this would be highly appreciated!
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Creation Suggestions? on: June 01, 2010 08:09:18 PM
I'm in the process of making a Girl Genius costume for a convention I'm attending Independence Day weekend, and am a little stuck as to how I should make Agatha, the main characters, locket.

The top image is the best picture of the choker/locket I've been able to find. It's a trilobite pendant on a choker-type necklace.

I don't know how readily available gold trilobite pendants are, but I just need some guidance as to how I should go about making this.

Thanks y'all!
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Cotton Darners For Other Tasks? on: October 28, 2009 05:33:24 PM
So I was confused at the fabric store and bought cotton darner needles. Aside from darning, can these needles be used for anything else, like, embroidery or sewing on buttons?
5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Advice for the lye-phobic? on: October 25, 2009 07:51:29 PM
So here's my story...

I want to start making soap, really bad, but I'm scared to death of using lye. Now, I'm aware that if you take the right precautions that it's relatively safe, but still pretty dangerous, to use.

Is there any advice that anyone has for me in regards to lye or another method of making soap WITHOUT using it?

6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Layer a seam? on: October 23, 2009 07:08:56 PM
Good evening!

I'm currently working on a skirt, and right now I'm sort of stuck as to what to do next. I'm at this step "With RIGHT sides together, pin garment to casing, matching centers and placing side seam at small dots. Stitch seam. LAYER seam. Press seam toward casing, pressing casing."

Now, up until the layer seam part, I have done it.

What on earth does it mean to layer a seam?
7  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Soap without lye? on: April 18, 2009 07:42:42 AM
I've been lurking around on this list, reading the various posts about soap making. It has peaked my interest intently, but here's my question, is there a way to make soap without lye or any causitive materials, or is the only way to make soap? Thanks in advance!
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Resizing Crochet Patterns? on: March 24, 2009 08:56:16 PM
Okay, so this might be one of the easiest things to do in the world, but I still need it explained to me anyway.

I was browsing around on My Little City Girl today and I found some stuff that was super adorable, but all in girl sizes. Is there a way to resize it to make it adult sized?
