2  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Crafting for a Cause (Yahoo group) on: January 08, 2006 07:25:25 AM

I just heard about this group on Crochetville and signed up. It's called Crafting for a Cause - the 3 main causes they contribute crafts and craft supplies to are the Pine Ridge Reservation (children and elders), UC Davis Pediatric Cancer Infusion Center, and The Chain Gang (children & young adults with physical/intellectual disabilities who do crafts).

You can be involved in any type of craft to participate, can participate in any or all of the projects (either quarterly or monthly), and they are grateful for anything you can contribute. As I understand it, the group has 501c(3) status.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Hello and fulling question on: December 05, 2005 04:44:50 AM
I recently(re-)learned to knit and am so glad to finally be posting to this board. I kept wandering over from the crochet board anyway, so it's about time!

One of my first projects is a striped pouch sort of thing for my SIL made of Knitpicks Wool of the Andes that is destined for felting. Being lazy, I'm wondering if I can just knot off the loose ends of the stripes since I am planning to full/felt the bag - will this hold, or do I need to weave all of the ends in? I just got done weaving in all of the ends on a striped crocheted scarf, and I'm not eager to turn around and do it again, plus time is an issue. However, I'll do whatever I need to - I don't want to ruin the bag.

Based on this idea


I made this

to carry my crochet projects in.

My sewing skills are rudimentary, and I did this by hand, so I hid the spots where I sewed on the handles. I'm thinking of adding little iron-ons to these.

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Stretchy crochet fabric? on: October 07, 2005 11:45:22 AM
What would be the optimal combination of yarn and stitches to make a crochet fabric that is slightly stretchy? I want to make a Moebius scarf out of fun fur + a light acrylic held together, but don't want it to be too thick or stiff. Or too lacy - more of a "medium" density fabric.

Any ideas? Maybe just a loose single or double crochet so that it's flat?
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Seuss book, Baby book, French-inspired address book - lots of images on: October 07, 2005 09:48:36 AM
Although I have mainly posted in the crochet forum, it was actually the paper crafts forum that got me interested in Craftster. Here are some of the projects I was inspired to do based on various posts here. Thanks for the inspiration!!!

Thank you to whomever posted the squid cozy. It was my inspiration!

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 2 new kids' scarves with Target yarn on: October 07, 2005 09:39:29 AM
For these 2 crocheted projects, I used one strand of pink acrylic with one strand of multi-colored mohair. This stuff is totally unforgiving. I crochet fairly tightly and forget about frogging at all. I also had trouble finding the beginning of the yarn on one ball and had to cut off a big tangle to start. Otherwise I like the result with the 2 strands together.

This scarf is simply single crochet worked in the back loop.

This is the Caron yarns free ruffle scarf pattern (adjusted for different gauge). It's not finished yet - I think I have 2 rows left. Looks kind of like a tape worm!

The scarves look small because they are for my 2 and 6 yr. olds.
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / How can I get to the cell phone cozies thread? on: September 20, 2005 09:09:52 AM
I have been trying to access the knitted/crocheted cell phone cozies thread above, but keep getting this message:

"The topic or board you are looking for appears to be either missing or off limits to you."

Is there something wrong with the link?

10  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Crocheted Totoro on: September 09, 2005 11:20:30 AM
Here is my first attempt at a crocheted toy, something I definitely want to do more of. I made this Totoro (he's the medium-sized one) for the Miyazaki swap. He's based on a Forest Friends animal pattern.
