81  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: Fuzzy Bunny turned kitty slippers on: August 18, 2011 05:28:53 PM
Super cute. I tried this pattern too, but something went horridly wrong when I made the soles.  Huh I tried, I followed it to a t and even checked out the pattern corrections, but it kept not adding up to the right amount of stitches. That's when I did what any young lady, full of crafting integrity, would do. I gave up and played Plants vs. Zombies.

Thanks! My kitchen is so beige, it's depressing, so that's part of an ongoing project to make cooking less horrifying an experience!

So, as far as level of difficulty goes, this is a little lame, but it makes up for it in fun! I can't post pictures yet, so here's a link:

Two sided, no less!

It's really, really big. Hand engulfingly so. Officially I'm going to tell you it's because I'd like it to double as a trivet. Honestly, I just didn't feel like grabbing a preexisting potholder, so I just made it bigger than my hand...which was silly, apparently. I've never crocheted tapestry with any success, so I was pretty happy about this little victory!

Thanks for checking it out!

I used a very cheap, washable yarn for my daughter's blanket and just washed the heck out of it before she got here. I used actual baby yarn for the little hats and booties I made her (which were a blast! Making baby things is so ridiculously fun!!!!) but I used variegated yarn so there would be a bit more interest. Also, I made sure to use really bright, contrasting colors. Babies have terrible eyesight, so contrast is what they see better than anything else. Actually, a black and white blanket with a pink of blue ribbon would be absolutely adorable, and would probably follow them into adult life (wouldn't that make an adorable throw later?).

Of course, if I'm making something for allergy prone people, I have a tendency to go with bamboo. It hasn't really been a problem yet, though. 
85  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Garment Fear on: August 17, 2011 08:29:56 AM
So, I have a confession to make. I have been crocheting since I was eight years old, and I have never so much as attempted to make a garment. It scares me so much! I have no knowledge of clothing construction and I understand very little about the drape of different kinds of yarn. Plus, I'm afraid of spending hundreds of dollars on yarn to make one sweater with, as most of my pattern books suggest. It occurred to me though that not all of the people on this forum know how to sew and even fewer of us are fabulously wealthy, so I was hoping you guys could give me some decent advice. What kind of pattern should I start with? How can I find cheapish yarn that doesn't look disgusting and pill all over the place?

Thanks for the help! I'm still a bit of a noob here, so thanks in advance for being so nice.

That is absolutely adorable! I keep thinking about making one but the idea of shaping arm holes for my dog sounds absolutely dreadful. Love it!
