11  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Stuck Need help reading a pattern on: November 06, 2013 04:48:28 AM
I've gotten to the last round of the pattern I'm working on and I'm not sure how to do this...

7th rnd:
With A, ch 1. 1 sc in same sp as last sl st.
*2 sc in each of next 8 dc. 1 sc in next dc. 1 sc in
next dc 4 rows below. Place marker on last sc.
1 sc in next dc. Rep from * around, omitting sc
at end of last rep. Join with sl st to first sc...

I get most of it but how do I 1 sc in next dc 4 rows below? This is a new one for me. Please and Thank you in advance for any advice.
12  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Question on making bath fizzy things on: November 02, 2013 06:21:09 AM
I've been reading a lot of recipes for making bath fizzy bomb things, and most require citric acid. I assume this is what makes it fizz, but I found one with cream of tartar instead. The blogger admits you don't get the same effect, but I was wondering if any one has tried this or has a substitution for the citric acid?

I'm just curious Grin

ETA: Well since no one had an answer, I decided to play mad scientist and try it out. The fizzies worked great! Better than the ones I've purchased at the store. Although the reaction is more subtle than the one you get with the citric acid.

Thanks for the feed back everybody. I found some swirly scarf patterns I want to try, but this wasn't supposed to swirl. Smiley It's ok, I kept it and will try again for mom-in-law.

Ok Thank you!
15  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / How did I do this? on: October 30, 2013 09:21:59 AM
I decided to make just a basic scarf for my mother-in-law, I chained to the length I wanted and started to double crochet. The yarn started to swirl I figured after a few rows it would straighten out but it hasn't, see...

What happened? I'm not going to tear it out because I kind of like it, although it'd be cooler if the spirals were tighter. I'd like to know so I can avoid it next time. Thank you.
16  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: where the f did i go wrong?.....or...... why was my booth such a failure? on: October 29, 2013 05:10:12 AM
My only suggestion is focus on the stuff folks are buying and bring smaller amounts of the other things. Or just focus on one medium. From experience it seems to be a lot of trial and error. Good Luck!
17  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Our Pumpkin Contest Entry on: October 27, 2013 03:37:23 PM
I'm not really sure if this counts as a craft per se, but I'm really proud of how this turned out and wanted to share. J and I did this last year and had a lot of fun putting together a pumpkin so we figured we do it again this year. According to the rules, she has to pick a storybook character and do everything herself. Shhh...

This year J choose Cinderella, she wanted to make a carriage and the clock tower. The carriage is paper mache with wire wheels and painted then glitterized. The clock tower is just a paper towel roll with a paper top, painted. The Cinderella is the pumpkin, of course, with yarn hair, a piece of wire ribbon hot glued to it and painted on face. I wielded the hot glue and helped make the paper mache, but J did all the rest herself.

Last year we made Puss In Boots...

The hat and boots are cardboard (we used a Crystal Light box), the ears and tail are felt. J drew the face and painted it. She got third place and is hoping for first this year.

This is awesome! I was completely freaked out by this episode. I stumbled over your post while looking for a tutorial to make a paper mache angel tree topper. Hmmm, Dr Who Christmas. Now the wheels are turning...
