1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Blonde knitting joke.... on: April 07, 2006 07:31:11 AM
 A highway patrolman pulled alongside a speeding car on the
freeway. Glancing at the car, he was astounded to see that the blonde
behind the wheel was knitting! Realizing that she was oblivious to his

Has anyone seen these?  (picture of some at link below)


I have seen them in a local store for $6 but Im wondering how easy these would be to make yourself. They look simple enough, but Im having trouble finding the smaller purse frames, about 2 inches in size. Does anyone know where these can be found?

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / sideway knit mittens *link to pattern on: November 08, 2005 07:34:22 PM
These mittens are knit sideways. I have trouble knitting mittens (and socks & some hats) because its complicated and I hate using DPN,s. These look very easy to make and I,ll be trying it this way very soon. If anyone else has made these, or plans to, I would like to see how they turned out. The link has directions for child and adult size mittens.

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / 'Hooked on Style' crochet book preview/opinions 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*
