I'm using them as "goofer dust" and "the sands of time" for hex bags that I sell at Supernatural Conventions Smiley they look like the pics I first posted on the inside, and like this pic when they are complete! I do a "love hex bag" and a "binding hex bag" with a spell and accurate contents and all. although, these beads are much cuter than actual goofer dust. hehe Smiley

Hello there!!

I'm trying to purchase more of these tiny little gold and silver balls, but can't seem to locate them anywhere. I thought maybe they had something to do with embossing, but everything embossing wise is too glittery or powdery. Does anyone know what these are? Pictured, they are the silver balls on the left, and gold balls on the left.

Thanks for any direction you may have!

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: What should I do with a BUNCH of WHITE YARN?! on: May 27, 2011 04:11:57 PM
thank you guys!!! yu're all so helpful. I really like the idea of the loofa - may just use some different yarn for that - thanks for the link to the pattern kristel.

and I am almost done with the blanket, but am running out of yarn...I found a really close color and will probably just leave it. Luckily, I'm not a huge perfectionist and the blank will be in a dimly-lit TV room, so no one will notice right? hehe.

and I agree Peihan17!! the pattern is not hard at all. It's nice because it's sort of mindless but you still get the vary your stitches. And I'm also so with you on lionbrand providng pictures. I was a little stumped on the little flower section, but was able to get my questions answered from the user-submitted photos, so I will defintely  remember that technique for next time.

Thanks again all :!

Wonderful! Thanks for the advice you guys!

I decided on the blanket just because I've been in need of an easier on-going project.

I am running into an issue though...as much yarn as I've been given, it's not enough to make the entire blanket. I have enough for 2/3rds of it. So! I was thinking I can rip my hair out trying to find a similar shade of yarn..OR! Would it be too late to dye the yarn post-crochet? once the blanket is completed?

I really like the blanket! Wondering though, is there an advantage to starting from the outside? I've made a blanket exactly like this (change of colors and everything...gotta find a picture,) staring from the middle though, and my favorite part was that it was so mindless.

I saw that you did a granny square outside in too, which looks really cool. How do you do the middle though?

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / What should I do with a BUNCH of WHITE YARN?! on: May 07, 2011 12:52:16 PM

I was given a bag full of yarn yesterday by my office secretary. Oh my gosh, you guys know the feeling of being given a garbage bag full of yarn...it's pretty much sheer bliss as your blood temperature rises, while you're imagining all the possibilities.

There is a lot of great stuff in it...some fun vintage rug yarn which I always find projects for, and some other nice colors and textures. But!!! There are six balls of just plain old cotton worsted weight white yarn. These balls are BIG too. I'd say there's as much yarn in one as those big 1 pound skeins you can get for like 8 bucks.

So what should I do with it?? it's not nice enough feeling really to make any clothes, I know that...but can this kind of yarn make good scarves or gloves??

I was thinking maybe even this blanket i've been wanting to make on lion brand, but again, the texture, will it be cozy??


maybe this cool rug?


but who wants a WHITE rug??

When I've asked people "what should I do wtih all this white yarn" they often respond "make snowmen!" How many snowmen can one woman make?!?!! haha

Any ideas?!
