1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitpicks has needles?! on: July 18, 2006 11:23:02 PM
I LOVE LOVE LOVE these needles! I want to be Mrs. Knitpicks Options  that's how much I love them!
I've been knitting for about 7 months now, having crocheted since I was a zygote. I have a variety of needles (my n00bie overzealousness I suppose-I have way too many) from the very cheap to the "my hubby will divorce me if he knew how much these cost" needles (although that WOULD clear the way for me becoming Mrs. Knitpicks...but I digress...)....I even own 3 Addi's ....and these surpass them all. They have a wonderful weight to them without being heavy, the yarn slides ever so nicely without flying off & me luvs them sharp sharp tips! I should have started w/these because I never would have bought the Gross National Debt in needles. Put $1 a day aside for the next 2 months & they're yours. Right now shipping is free if you spend $40 USD. As for the shipping...I dunno how they figured 7-14 days because I had mine in 4 days. FOUR. Ordered on 07/09, shipped on 07/10 & I had them in my hands on 07/13. I can't recommend them enough!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Wedding Gowns for the... um.. ample? lol on: June 13, 2006 04:59:46 PM
I went very non traditional for my wedding last summer. I am so not a gown person - I look awful in them. We decided to have a small wedding in Niagara Falls but I still wanted something special. My maid of honor & I both ordered our outfits from http://pardesifashions.com/ and I can't recommend them ENOUGH. They were WONDERFUL! I am a 26/28 & a 44DD - I'm also 5'4" - almost impossible to get something off the rack. They worked with me, helping me take my own measurements, making suggestions about what might look better & even suggested shoes (I found a pair of thong sandals @ TJ Maxx for $2!!!!). When my 1st outfit arrived there were issues with fitting - I got on the phone & they got a new one made & sent to me directly from India in less than 2 weeks. They were fabulous. I was comfortable & I felt beautiful. Pardesi makes all sizes but will custom make something for any size. My entire outfit, complete w/shoes cost me less than $200. I'm including the flowers, too (I made all the flowers including small favors for all the lady guests myself w/silks from AC Moore for under $75).

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: ATC-along anyone? **FEBRUARY's theme is "CHANCE". Post on Fridays!!!" on: February 19, 2006 07:22:34 PM
Nice job Nushybum.  I really like the composition and the colour.  Very effective!

Hey there!  I want to be second to post  Wink  Can't let Nushybum have all the fun.  Here is my ATC for the week:

The title is "Chance or Fate".  When we are standing at one spot in our lives, there are many directions we can go.  Is it Chance or Fate as to which direction we go?

Made with: handmade arrow stamp, watercolours, acrylics.

Really insightful...I love the concept. Great colors, too :-)

That's gorgeous....that color blue is really lovely. What yarn did you use? Also, what did you line it with? It looks like the liner matches perfectly.
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Putting a ruffle on a granny square doily? Any tips? on: January 17, 2006 07:55:08 PM
Doilies are a bear for me & I've been crocheting since I was about 9 (I'm 39 but if you tell anyone I'll deny it)....I give you a lot of credit for doing one right away. There's a lot of different ways to make a ruffle but I think the easiest is to do 2-3 double crochet in each stitch. Treble crochets work also & looks really neat in thread. If you're in the mood to be a little fancy, this is a scallop edging that I use alot (I love making giant granny squares a blankets):

In space between each 3 double crochet clusters, do 5 double crochets; in corner spaces do 8 double crochets. You can also use treble crochets.

(I know those abbreviations can be hell, especially when first starting out. Trust me, you'll get used to it in time)
Good luck & make sure to post pics when you're done. Would love to see it  Smiley

This is gorgeous! I love the color-it looks very "fall-ish". I really like the pattern as well - large enough that you can make it out (don't you hate those patterns that are so small or get lost in yarn?). Anyway, lovely!!   Smiley
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Looking for similar patterns... on: October 13, 2004 08:15:59 PM
What about this one? It's similar even with the arms. The pattern is for sale but it's only $5 so may be well worth it.

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Justin Timberlake Cap on: October 08, 2004 05:24:41 PM

I'm looking for a pattern that would give me a cap like the one worn by Justin Timberlake (I don't need to have stripe in the pattern though).

Any leads/ideas?



That looks like single crochet to me........

(I love this guy's site BTW-neat stuff)

Try these .... most of them are fairly easy; most only use 1 stitch:
