1  crocheting a picture....help? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by magdelena_go on: January 26, 2008 05:57:35 PM
I was going to make the posterboy bag from stitch and bitch but as I sat down to redo my reworked picture, I wondered about crocheting it.  How does it work to crochet something like this? From what I understand, it's more sucessful to knit.  And..if so, I am assuming it's single crochet?  How do you travel with the yarn?  Same as knitting?

I finished, too!  Very easy pattern, really quick....and I used the hook suggested with good results.  I'm not sure how I crochet but I knit loose...

Radioactivecrafter received her package today and asked me to post pictures.  She chose the theme of swing dancing which I found very challenging.  Maybe because it was my first swap, I was afraid to be too bold.  Anyway, I sorta jumped upon her other 'likes' which were black and white and checks.   Pictures are a little blurry.....sorry.  On my blog I have pictures another tin that I did for a friend if you'd like to peek which is a little more wacky. Smiley


inside top

inside bottom....(which says Music makes my heart "swing")

stuff I sent along....black and white anklet, domino earrings I made and some sterling stitch markers which could be used as pendants if desired.

I've been bitten by the bug, too.  Here's one I made this morning...sorry for the blur.  I couldn't get a decent shot.

6  Cherry Pie... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by magdelena_go on: July 02, 2006 09:02:00 PM
I recently saw some gorgeous necklaces online and had to make one for a friend.  I've made a few bracelets and such but I'm a jewelry/beading novice.  Damn, those loops that you've gotta make at the top of the bead, to attach it...those are hard to make pretty!  I tried the version where you make the loop up top and then wrap the wire around it but it was too difficult and looked way crapier.  Any hints on those loops?

Anyway, here it is.    (I also have two new knitting projects on my blog....one's a cuff with beads and the other is a record album bag with a knit strap)

7  can anyone help me make a chart for a wrist band? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by magdelena_go on: June 13, 2006 02:17:25 PM
I don't have photoshop and can't figure out how to do this. I tried micro revolt but they came out huge...  I tried tracing onto knitting graph paper and they look funny.  Anyone?  I would be sooo thankful!!! Smiley

Just the glove is fine...

Also if anyone has a NY Yankee chart done that would be awesome....I'd like to make one for my dad for fathers day!

Thanks everyone!

9  Quick Chunky Hat... in Knitting: Completed Projects by magdelena_go on: December 26, 2005 08:08:45 AM
I was looking for a very quick hat to knit my sister and dad.  This is cute and fast....I had spun this yarn but the pattern calls for a chunky gauge so I added some Lambs Pride in gold and fuschia.  I like how the pattern gives you other options for different yarn....

Pattern here->

a horrifying picture but ....I made one of the martian madness hats.....but I did it wrong.  And this is how it came out.  It was a prototype sorta for a friend but my son wont take it off and loves it!
