1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Rosette pattern help on: March 30, 2008 07:33:15 AM
Im new to crochet but armed with my stitch 'n bitch crochet I am tackling a lovly pattern for a 1948 rosette necklace. http://www.annalaia.com/crochetjewelry/1948RosetteNecklace.html

In the second round the pattern is:
2nd round- into each 2ch., hole put 1 d.c., 1tr., 1 d.tr., 1 tr., 1 d.c
The pattern in british so I have figured the UK > USA stiches i should be doing, but am I doing each of the 5 stitches into each ch., or spacing the 5 stitches across the 2ch.,?

Hope somebody can help am at my laptop armed with the hook and thread!
2  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / pencil roving on: March 30, 2006 08:59:22 AM
I am new to spinning and have been looking around at different types of fibre to spin, i have only used roving in the past, mainly merino, but i have seen pencil roving for sale at a good price (ready to dye as well,as i thought id give kool aid a try) i was wandering how hard/easy is this to spin on a drop spindle?
has anybody spun with pencil roving before with a drop spindle? how did you find it?
hope that you can help me!
thank you Hannah
3  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / my very first handspun yarn! on: February 26, 2006 07:29:00 AM
I'm so pleased; I have just spun my very first yarn!

I started with 3 strips of merino roving in 3 different shades of pink. I then split each strip in half and then in to 3 and spun alternating strips of the 1cm wide roving together

Im not too sure if it is to thick though, Im not really sure how thin/thick it is meant to be, I started with 3 30cm lengths of roving and I have spun around 11m

there are still a few very twisty parts in the lengths of yarn, and it is thick and thin and places and some of my joins are a little fluff, but I like it!
anyone have and opinions or helps to share?
Just ordered 100g more roving in brown and turqoise and i got some 1ply beaded yarn that i though i would try plying with it, do i just wiind the yarn off the spinlde with the 1ply counterclock wise to ply it before i set the twist!?
Thanks Hannah x

Hello everyone! Cheesy
Warning quite picture heavyWell i have already posted my sublime hula honey top https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=29749.0 but i have made a few (*ahem* quite alot) of tops and so on using jennys designs, so i thought that i would post them up here for all of you crafty people to have a look at and comment on, hopefully some of you out there have ideas on different thinks that i could do, or use my designs on!

first is my cowgirl top!
this was my first ever top to customise using Jenny's designs and is probably my most worn and admired, i have been offered money for this baby!
This appears on the front left hand corner

(sorry the image is blurry cant get it to focus)
the guns here are on the back or the t-shirt, right near the neck!

I made this T-shirt to wear during my exams to give me abit of luck, using green as its a lucky colour! sadly its luck didnt
rub off but i do still like the top!

My crafty apron, with the biggest ever pocket to fit everything crafty that i could ever want to carry! my pins scissors chalk... it is a half length apron made from some scrap fabric and lots of pink binding and ribbon!

here are some close ups of the stitching... Cheesy

i love my vegas granny pants! they are big but cool!

they do look alot better on! Smiley

here is a pillow case i made using the stitch-it-kit, i think that there is something along the lines of this in the book that comes with it, i loved it so much i had to make it!

Well that was a little long winded!
congratulations for reading this far!
i just thought it would be nice to have everything in the same place!i would love to answer any questions you have and any comments or criticism would be good!im working on afew more tops at the moment, which i will post pics of when im done!
thank you again!

hello everyone! Smiley
this is my first proper post! argh Shocked but i am so excited that i have finally finished the embroidery on the shirt, that i had to post it and see what you all thought of my handy work! Smiley
This is a top i embroidered for my boyfriend, using the hula girl pattern from Jenny Hart's Stitch-it-kit!i made up the flower pattern myself using a trasfer pen!I took me a while to make but i am really pleased with it, here are the pics:

(sorry the pictures are a little blurred i am just getting used to using the digital!)
i have made a few other T-shirts using Jenny's patterns, i think that they are really fun to use and it is quite easy to add you own touch to them!
Let me know what you all think, and if anyone has any questions then don't hesitate to ask!
Thanks Hannah  Cheesy
