Thanks!  I don't know why I didn't even think to root around on ravelry  Tongue

Okay, so a friend of mine has asked me to crochet him a pair of socks, and I know it can be done.  But I'm not really finding pictures that I like. Any suggestions for where to look for good sock patterns that are male appropriate.  I don't think he'd appreciate a pair of lacy socks!

I would suggest something more along the lines of cotton.

But from my understanding more natural fibers are going to withstand the water better.

If you are using wool then your cat may, in part, be reacting to the natural smells in the fiber.  When I was using Alpaca yarn in a scarf my cat was very much reacting to the smell of the yarn.  You may consider making your cat some sort of toy with the wool.  If your cat is reacting to the sent, then you can distract your cat with the toy.  Obviously, cats being cats, things don't always work out that smoothly.  But you can also add some catnip to get a further boost of distraction out of the toy.

Good luck, I tend to let my cats get away with too much because there's no way I could lock them out of the room.  I'd either never see the cats or never crochet!

I'm going to be doing cozies for the round tops of the fence in a parking lot near my work place.  The cozies are going to look like black bombs with grey fuses.  I think I'm going to use a little bit of red fun fur to create a spark effect at the end of the wick.

I don't know when I'm going to make the pieces or set it up yet.  My fiancee doesn't crochet, but he's going to help me set it up and stand look out  Smiley

Thank you both for your links.

I have come across a few of those patterns, but haven't tested any from those collections yet.

I had not come across that book before, so I'll have to look more closely into it, but it looks like it has a wide variety of ideas/

My fiancee proposed at the beginning of December so now the planning begins!

While looking through magazines of Wedding Crafts I decided I want to crochet my bouquet.  I've looked at a couple of patterns, but I don't like any of them the way they are written/presented/photographed.

I decided that I need to back up and just start collecting and practicing flower patterns.  I think this way I can put together an original(ish) bouquet using flowers and colors of my choosing.

I would love any tips, suggestions, advice, etc of flower patterns, bouquet patterns, yarn suggestions, or really anything that could help in this endeavor.

I have 15 months to figure this out and put it together, but I want to start early so that I can be sure that I have pattern execution down so that I can carry my best creation down the aisle.

Thank you for any help you can offer!

I love the bright colors in the first.

Great job on all of them though!

That is incredibly beautiful and very exciting.

My big wedding project is to crochet my bouquet.

It's nice to find crochet popping up at more and more weddings.
