171  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Interweave Crochet 2005!! on: August 31, 2005 11:06:29 PM
Now see, i am very excited by the new Interweave and was pleasantly surprised by the Family Circle mag (lily chin's "living on the edge" poncho is fabulous - I am excited to use up all sorts of fun bits I have left over and have been "saving"). No, personally, I will not sink in 300 dollars on a project in yarn, but I have never found I ever "had" to. Combination of yarn substitution and always having an "eye out" for deals, recyclables and my favorite, trendknitters (all these acquaintances who "just had to start knitting" and bought gorgeous yarns and supplies and never finished a sleeve, I have been lucky to "inherit" some nice little stashes). Besides, I love having the magazines and even books to fall back on - not always following their pattern but working on various things and then saying "hey" to myself "I remember a similar but cooler collar on that one jacket in such and such" and digging it out. They are a great resource, just like a lot of the freebies online - i will print them out and I may never make that really frilly doily starched into a basket but I liked the stitch effect they used on say the handle and can pull that out to experiment with.

Besides, even if I never make a thing or use the Interweave mag for anything else, I went and bought a copy today (Hastings had it in early woo hoo!) for nothing else than to support those designers and to say to everyone else "hey, we are out here and we are not making doilies". And yes, I will never wear the asymmetrical pirate jacket, but I was ecstatic and excited to see it in there because Ms. Durham is an amazing artist and it is great to have that "edge" advocated in crochet.

but on a nerdier point, I am really excited that they talked about the cool "chaos" model of the Lorenz manifold - and have a short and sweet pattern for a smaller hyperbolic plane so that I can sit it on my desk (next to the set of "germs" I am crocheting) and proclaim my nerdiness even louder!

That is really cool!!! Where I work, our whole department travels internationally quite often regularly and it is a constant "quest" for the next best purses, bags, pockets, jackets with hidden pockets etc... to travel with that isn't an ugly proclamation of touristy status. I am so putting your excellent tutorial to good use and making myself one of these brilliant belts, maybe a couple to coordinate with (business casual kind of day belt, out on the town night belt, yay casual day belt) and will be quite envied by my cubby mates!!! As you may have guessed, I am quite excited about this - GREAT JOB!!!! Shocked Shocked Grin
