1  Re: free yarn in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Debzzzbee on: January 13, 2006 03:14:31 PM
Heres a pic of the samples. Not much to work with except as everyone else has said...to make a tail on a toy mouse that your cat may (or may not) like. I cant imagine trying to knit or crochet anything useful or attractive with this crap.

5  Tweed-ey bead-ey skinny scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by Debzzzbee on: November 02, 2005 04:20:47 PM
I made this in 'Red Heart Tweed' and love the texture of it! Didnt want regular fringe so I sewed on the neat bead fringe.

6  'Hooked on Style' crochet book preview/opinions in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by Debzzzbee on: October 18, 2005 08:16:31 PM
"Hooked on Style-Fabulous Fashions to crochet" is the name of this book by Patons Designs. It came out in August or October of '05 *unclear* and so far has been hard to find. I really like Patons crochet patterns, and recently ordered this book but it is out of stock until next month (from CraftersChoice book club)
If anyone has this book already, or knows more about it, please share it here! When I finally do recieve it, I,ll post again with my opinion on it. And if I dont like it, I,ll return it or give it away. I already gave away my 'Hip to Crochet' book because, well.....there was nothing hip about it  LOL.  Tongue

Here is the CraftersChoice description and pic of the book in question that Im waiting so impatiently for.... and I promise to share with my fellow Craftsters when I finally do get it!  Wink

"If you think dowdy sweaters and frumpy hats when you think crochet, one look at this book will change your mind forever! Its filled with over a dozen completely fresh, fashionable designs that stylish women of every age will fall for.
 From gorgeous sweaters, skirts, and camisoles to wear out on the town to scarves and hats that will have you looking amazing on the coldest winter days, theres something fabulous to crochet for every occasion and season. Youll even find a great selection of accessories, including handbags and shawls.
 Every project is crocheted with high-quality yarn from Patons Design Studio, a leader in cutting-edge designs, and features complete instructions for a range of different sizes.
For chic crochet designs youll love wearing, this beautifully photographed book is bound to have you Hooked on Style! Hardcover, 144 pages, 8" x 10", color photos "

*P.S.  Most everything I have seen from Patons designs are far from frumpy and grandma-ey so Im looking forward to this book*

7  washing a wool sweater?? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Debzzzbee on: October 16, 2005 02:21:00 PM
Is there a way to do this without completely destroying it? Its a long, pink, cabled, sweater-coat made in Ireland of merino wool. It says Dry Clean ONLY but Im hoping theres a way to safely wash it at home because I wear it alot and as you can see, its getting pretty dirty! I was thinking of using cold water in gentle cycle with Woolite and laying flat to dry. Or should I just not risk it ?

8  'Boyfriend Blankie' in Crochet: Completed Projects by Debzzzbee on: August 04, 2005 08:50:46 PM
I made this for my construction worker boyfriend who wanted a throw to cuddle with/sweat on while he lays on the couch after work with the central air cranked up, shivering & flipping through the 187 channels on T.V. and complaining that theres "never anything on".     He has absolutely no interest in my beautiful  knit & crochet projects that I labor on while sitting next to him while hes shivering/complaining/channel-surfing. Until one day he looked over at me and said  (with a mouthful of Pringles) "th'an you make me a blanketh'...one with 'no holes' in it ?"
I was in love all over again!  Kiss
So I whipped this up in worsted weight acrylic (he wouldnt truly appreciate a finer yarn) Aran fleck color done entirely in simple single crochet. No pattern. Measured his carcass on the couch..made a chain in that length, *single crocheted across, ch1, turn* repeat from star. Its durable and easy to machine-wash over & over again since its done in cheap acrylic yarn. It actually gets softer after each chip & beer stained washing. He really likes it... and its the most appreciated thing I have ever made for anyone!  Smiley

9  Bikini kit (only top is done) in Knitting: Completed Projects by Debzzzbee on: July 16, 2005 10:18:56 AM
This is from a kit my sister bought me for my B-day back in April. I had to teach my self to knit first before I would attempt to make this. The kit was bought at Target and called "KnitThis" It had plastic needles in it which I could not use (too slippery) so I did this on size 6 bamboo needles. The kit also came with a DVD which was VERY helpful.
Im now working on the bottoms to this. Im kinda' proud that this is my first-almost-complete project and it didnt turn out too bad!
P.S. The yarn it came with is cotton I think because its almost identical to 'sugar-n-cream'
