1  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: Some prepster q's on: May 19, 2007 03:16:39 PM
Ahh, thanks!  Yeah, I got to that part of the pattern and all I could think was "That is completely pointless..."

I'll definitely post pictures!  It may be another 4 months though... Roll Eyes
2  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Some prepster q's on: May 18, 2007 03:14:00 PM
After abandoning it for a few months because of school, I finally started working on Prepster again.  I'm working on the back and I just finished the first row of shaping the sleeve area, and I'm wondering if there's any particular reason WHY I fasten off at the end of this row?  And why do I suddenly start working sc's on the WS of the piece?

If I didn't fasten off and just kept working, with sc on the RS and dc on the WS, would it affect the rest of the pattern?
3  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Fat Bottom Bag question - too many sts? on: February 23, 2007 11:06:55 PM
I checked all the previous help topics about this bag and didn't see anyone else who had this problem, so here goes...

Is there an error in the pattern for the gold bag?  Because when I get row 15, it says I need to ch 2, hhdc into the next 18 stitches, 2 hhdc into next st, hhdc 5, 2 hhdc in next st, hhdc into the last 19 stitches - 47 st.  This doesn't make  sense to me, because by the time there are 45 stitches, I should have 20 sts on either side of the 5 in the middle, which I do.  The pattern also has those numbers when I start doing my decreases as well, so yeah, is that just an error in the book, or did I accidentally add some stitches somewhere?  Any answers would be appreciated!

Thick plexiglass/acrylic sheets/whatever you wanna call it.  They have the clear stuff at Lowe's, but I don't know where you would get the colored mirror plexi.

I have no idea what they use to cut their jewelry, though.  A lot of people have theirs laser cut, but that's really, really expensive.  I know that the girl who does RITFJ doesn't have hers laser cut, but she's not really willing to share her technique since she gets ripped off a lot.  A guy I work with suggested a Dremmel, and my mom suggests a jeweler's saw...so I guess one of those might work?  I plan on trying this out soon, I can take all the scrap plexi I want from work.

You MUST tell me how you did the daffodil.  My hometown is known for its daffodils, we even have an annual Daffodil Festival!

I'm about to start this project and I'm a bit confused on the directions for the back...  The directions read "Rows 50 - 88: Rep rows 42 - 40 sc", but that doesn't make any sense.  Is the back just worked the same as the front?  Because I'm figuring it's a misprint and is supposed to be "Rep rows 2 - 40"...  If someone could just clarify that for me it'd be greatly appreciated!!   Grin
7  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: What do you think is best for a first crochet project? on: May 15, 2006 10:16:51 AM
I also did One-Skein Scarf for my first-ever crochet project.  It's just as easy as the striped scarf, but I like OSS because it doesn't look so plain.  I was surprised how quickly crochet goes compared to knitting, I did most of the scarf in only two hours!
8  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: "Accidentally on Purpose" from SnB Nation on: March 08, 2006 01:23:32 PM
All right, trying to shape the neck is killing me...

Let me start by saying that I'm pretty sure I'm doing the DBO2 the right way!

Somehow on that first row of shaping, the number of stitches I have to knit keeps getting all screwy.  I'm makig a small, so after I do all my DBO2s and BOs, I'm supposed to K26.  I keep ending up having to K28 or 27, and at one point I had 24.  I've counted and recounted to make sure that I placed 26 sts on the holder at the beginning, and that I only have 60 altogether, and I've read the directions out loud while I'm doing it...I have no idea where I'm going wrong!

On certain lines of the pattern, a DBO2 comes at the beginning of a row after I've purled back.  I drop the stitch, but the pretty much just...drops the stitch (duh) and I can't knit into it since my yarn isn't hanging in the right position.

I'm thinking of avoiding shaping the neck altogether and just opting for a straight, boatneck kinda thing.  Not sure how that would look, though...opinions?

It does throw off the seed stitch, but you just end up with a line of garter stitch where the first and last stitches meet.  It's really not even all that noticable!

Amazing bag!  I  just better not let my dad catch me reading this or he'll want one too!

On second thought, I could get a head start for Christmas... Smiley
