1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Pattern Help on: May 15, 2006 06:30:54 PM
I am trying to make a sweater for my grandma from a 1988 Annie's Attic Pattern Club magazine.  The yarn required, Camargue Chunk by Copley, is no longer made (as far as I can tell).  Can anybody help me regarding what modern yarns I can use?

The pattern required "15 grams" of yarn, which has to be a misprint.  It is asking for 2-ply Chunky yarn, No. 10-1/2 needles, 7 st sts = 2"; 9 st st rows - 2".  Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!  I am new to knitting and need all the help I can get.

Thank you!  Grin
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Spiderman? on: May 27, 2005 02:11:25 PM
My nephew wants me to crochet him a Spiderman doll.  I cannot find one to buy anywhere.  Has anyone seen anything like that?  Thanks!  Grin
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Noodles?? on: May 06, 2005 07:06:41 AM
Does anyone have any good noodle-type recipes that don't involve cheese?  My husband and my son won't eat noodles with cheese.  Thanks!!  Smiley
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Working with Graphs? on: February 14, 2005 06:19:44 AM
I would really like to crochet an image that's been graphed out, but I've never done it before.  Do the different colors of yarn become a big mess or is there an easy way to do it?  I've never had it explained to me before.  I just have a few images that are graphed out and I thought it would be really cool to make one of them.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Grin  Here is a link to one of the graphs I was looking at:

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Hippo? on: January 19, 2005 07:37:30 AM
I am looking for a stuffed hippo pattern.  I like hippos.  And now, naturally, since I can't find a pattern, I am desparate for one.  Has anyone seen any besides the one on here?  It is VERY cute, but it's kind of vague, and I need one that's less "create as you go" and more "this is exactly how you do it".  Please let me know, and THANKS!   Grin
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Rose Scarf on: December 16, 2004 11:08:39 AM
I saw this and thought it might spark some ideas.  It appears to be a bunch of knitted roses sewn together, but surely with all the talent in this section, someone can crochet one:  http://store.yahoo.com/fastforwardusa/lugrathaknsc.html

Please let me know if you try it.  I'd like to see a crocheted version.  I'd do it myself, but I never can post pics (no digital camera or scanner) so it never does anyone any good.  Thanks!! Grin
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / How to Lengthen a Scarf?? on: December 08, 2004 07:31:16 AM
Anyone have any ideas on how to lengthen a scarf without adding fringe to it?  I tried adding fringe to a scarf I made for my brother-in-law, but it didn't look right.  I was wondering if anyone had any ideas.  It's a vertical stripe scarf and I'd like to make it about two to three inches longer on both sides.  Huh
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Keyhole Scarf for Men? on: December 07, 2004 09:27:27 AM
I just finished crocheting a keyhole scarf in tan, rust, khaki, and dark green.  My question is does anyone think a man would wear a keyhole scarf?  I'm trying desperately to get all my Christmas crocheting done and I'm not sure who to give this one to.  All help is GREATLY appreciated!!!  I wish I had a pic to post, but I don't have access to digital camera.  Sorry!!  Smiley
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help! on: August 12, 2004 06:21:55 AM
I am a crocheter, but I am trying to learn to knit.  I FINALLY learned the stitch I was working on, but whenever I do the first row of knitting my cast-on row ends up looking like a row of loops instead of being up close to the stitches like I want it to be.  What am I doing wrong?  Huh
10  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / "Big Teacup" Tea Bag Holder on: August 03, 2004 01:06:56 PM
I finally got pictures!  I've never done pics before, so sorry about the size!  I got the idea after seeing a pattern at www.yarntomato.com in the April 2004 archive for a basket made with an old CD.  The lid of the teacup is just the base of the basket and it also has a CD in it.  Also, I did a row of single crochet just under the inside rim to help support the lid (my husband's idea).  Let me know what you think, and THANK YOU, YARN TOMATO and THANK YOU, JEN FOR THE TEACUP HANDLE IDEA!!!!!!  Grin
