1  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: Yeehaw lady on: March 13, 2006 06:37:27 PM
Yeah that looks great!  Quick question, though.  Does anybody else have a problem getting the gauge right?  I can't get it quite right, I always end up with 14 st being 5 inches instead of 4 with any hook that'll actually catch both strands of yarn.  [ETA] I normally crochet super tight so I don't think that's the problem, though who knows, I'll keep trying.  I really want to make this hat!

I wouldn't be too shocked about the paperback binding breaking.  It's pretty common in paperbacks... the problem of a so-called "perfect binding."  Sewn bindings will always be more flexible than glued bindings.

Oh I didn't mean to imply that I don't like yours as it is, I totally do like it!  I was just offering another angle.

YAAAAAAY for Tumnus!  So glad to find more Tumnus fans Cheesy.  I'm a dyed-in-the-wool crocheter but I did take up knitting just so I could make a Tumnus scarf.  kozytartan, which community are you talking about?  Because there's a narnia_knits community (not a lot activity, sadly) where it was pretty much established that the scarf is a knit 1, slip 1 across and purl back pattern.  Unfortunately I'd already almost finished mine in stockinette *whine*  But I'm making one for a friend in the k1 sl1 pattern and it really looks right.  I'm using Lamb's Pride Worsted on 15's  and it's coming out quite well Smiley
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Interweave Crochet Spring 2006 on: March 01, 2006 07:29:45 AM
Ooooh this is exciting!  Interweave rocks, and I end up not only buying their Crochet issue but drooling over their knit patterns and asking my mom to make them Wink  I actually emailed the editors of Knit.1 to say that I love the fact that they have some crochet patterns in their mag (which really is why I buy it) and asking if they'd consider creating a crochet magazine in the style of Knit.1.  Perhaps if lots of people email them with that suggestion they'd really do it Smiley

I LOVE your creations.  So refreshing, something really new and sassy in crochet!  This shrug is to DIE for.  Once your website is up, will you have any of your patterns on it, even for sale?  Cos I'd definitely buy this pattern right away. 
7  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Re: Santino Rice Cuff? on: February 01, 2006 08:55:49 PM
I just found the online Project Runway shop and saw that the cuff is $50 and my jaw dropped.  Bitter that I didn't think of it first ( Wink) I decided to figure out how to do it.  I'll try and post pictures when I can figure out how to take them...  it's really simple, just a case of looping the cord through itself, it's not even knots.  SO easy.  Can't believe they're ripping people off.  But I can see that people would buy it, because personally I saw him wearing it and fell in love with the idea.  Like I said, I wish I'd thought of it first so I don't seem like a copycat when I do it!   Not that that'll stop me... hehee...

Oh my goodness, I had to come out of craftster retirement to say that I'm in love with your Aladdin Sane sock monkey.  And I definitely second the motion for sock Monkees.  Rock on!!!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: I koshi-himoed myself out. on: November 15, 2005 08:28:21 PM
Beautiful!  Man, I've been away from craftster for ages... I'm glad I checked back because I love your stuff!  I'd look weird in kimono, being a curly redhead, but the picture of the one koshi himo with jeans looks awesome.  Smiley

That looks great, I love it!  Japanese textiles are so wonderful.  Clever idea to do the sashiko-pattern machine embroidery on the sleeves Smiley
