3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Scrap Yarn Projects on: June 05, 2012 05:59:34 PM
I created this post to share scrap yarn projects that anyone wishes to share!

I have lots of scratchy scrap skeins and balls of yarn that I have made into scrubbier dots for washing dishes. I have been using these for about 2 months & this size/shape is my fave over either the sponge size or 8x8 size I will be whipping up this size from now on to share & use.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Chemo Hats on: March 26, 2012 03:14:02 PM
An employee at work underwent chemo therapy she had lost some hair making it very thin looking on top as well as stringy at times..I have created a few different styles of hats plus a few in different colors at her request....This is what I have whipped up so far she is happen with them...

Multicolored made with sugar and cream cotton using a H hook for the first several rows then the last 3-4 rows I did with a F hook to tighten up the hat so I didn't have to use elastic.

Brown made with brown sugar and cream using a H hook for the first several rows then the last 3-4 rows I did with a F hook to tighten up the hat so I didn't have to use elastic.

Red made with hobby lobby acrylic I love this yarn using a H hook for the first several rows then the last 3-4 rows I did with a F hook to tighten up the hat so I didn't have to use elastic.

Very dark purple made with hobby lobby cotton using a H hook for the first several rows then the last 3-4 rows I did with a F hook to tighten up the hat so I didn't have to use elastic.

The ruffle hat is made with sugar and cream yarn using an H hook how every it called for an I but it was too big so I redid it using the H hook.

The bucket style hat is made with sugar and cream yarn using an H hook how every it called for an I but it was too big so redid it using the H hook..

The Granny style hat is made with sugar and cream yarn using an H hook but it was still too big when finished but can easily be fixed by changing the number if rows I created so I ripped it out and redid it
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Neckwarmer or Cowl on: December 28, 2011 07:35:24 PM

Started with a chain of 34 but next time I think I will do less as it seems too BIG (to wide) so maybe around 28.. I wanted to create a scarf for my dad that he didn't have to worry about loosing it just slide right over your head and down your neck...plus less inches to get in the way or could in a zipper of a coat.

As you can see it can nicely fit up around your ear/nose to keep you warm on cold nights.

Or you can easily dress up an outfit or hid a few Love Marks...
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Fingerless Gloves on: December 19, 2011 05:43:40 PM

A co-worker need a pair of fingerless gloves for a Xmas present for her dd so I whipped these up with out a pattern I think I did pretty good the first pair I tried making years ago ending up being too BIG 3 peoples hands would fit in one ripped those out and decided I couldn't make them I was wrong I just needed a few years of crochet experience and my fave use more then just one hook to get the gauge/size you want. I gave her a  Gray pair and now I am addicted to making more :O) to give away very quick gifts and just 1 ball of peaches & cream yarn was needed to make a pair...I think if you use RHSS you could get a least 2-3 pairs or a nice Hat & and pair of gloves for $2.28 and some time :O)

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Divided Pocket in a Bag Assistance on: December 06, 2011 08:44:16 AM
I am making a bag for my dd about 12-16 inch High the round then I plan to make a strap for carrying it over the shoulder this is currently been ripped out as I started out w/ 35 as the base chain and did 10 rows of sc before squaring it out for the bottom it ended up being WAY to Big after about 20 rows lol so I have restarted w/ 5-6 rows of SC before starting the squared base bottom part..and working the sides up :O) Here is the type of pattern/style I am doing however I am squaring the bottom some http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/trio-of-bags

Now the question is this I am using double yarn to make it thick/sturdier less able to stretch as items are add and the bag is being used...I want to create a middle centered divided say pocket (basically allow it to have 2 sections instead of just one big huge hole where you just chuck everything into..) Now my idea was/is to find the center of the bag before I get the sides really going and fold in half and sc across the bottom w/ the color I wish to have the divider to be and then work up say 30 rows or more of sc then as I use the outer part of the bag yarn join the divider created by slip stitching/sc joining or however I figure the best way to grab the divider/and the actual ROUND I am doing all the way up the divider creating maybe a pocket/divider Will this idea work or is there a better way to do this??

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Yet Another Slouchy Hat on: November 23, 2011 02:25:49 PM
I whipped this hat up a few weeks ago still new to this style pattern what do you guys think? I do however have a few questions does it look to big around (circle part) and should it be less rows around I have seen some that seem alot smaller then mine it measures at the Circle (side to side at 9 inches) and from top to bottom of the hat measures 11 inches...Thanks for all input :O)

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet Help! [keeping a consistent gauge] on: March 28, 2011 11:56:02 AM
Bit of information first..I have been seriously crocheting more for about a year...prior to this the only thing I made was crocheted T-Towels for my mom on Xmas. OK back to the issues I have..

1st issue..When making say a hat pattern using the hook stated say it's and H hook my and should fit an adult not when I am done... too small so I will tear out and use a larger hook almost fits and then repeat with another hook say J...ok hat fits (why is this)

2nd issue I made a hat yesterday with a K hook (pattern called for a J hook and the first one I made was perfect :O) excited.. I started a second one here is the issue I had using same hook and same type of yarn and brand (Cotton Peaches and Cream) doesn't look like it would fit a preemie...This was for an adult...

Got any ideas to help me :O) even if I crochet loose.... Crocheting for me can be so depressing.. But I want to get better so I keep trying...
