1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Granny Square site? on: November 18, 2007 08:50:56 PM
I seem to remember a site that had a ton of different granny squares and stitch samples with the how to instructions.  It showed you all the  different pictures of the samples and then you could chose the one you wanted to make.  & it was free.

I can't find the site for the life of me... anyone know what I'm talking about?

Muchas Gracias for the help!

2  Arizona / Arizona: Central / Sewing, Craft, & Needle-Art Festival. Is this the one Rickrackruby?? on: January 15, 2007 01:41:10 AM

From the link: "The Quilt, Craft & Sewing Festival, America's premier Sewing, Craft, & Needle-Art Show. "

January 25-27, 2007
Thurs. - Sat. 10 am - 5 pm

Arizona State Fairgrounds
1826 West McDowell
Phoenix, AZ 85005-1637

How Much:
Cost is $9 if you use the $1 discount coupon @ above link

I've never been to this.  Has anyone else?  Rickrackruby had mentioned an upcoming sewing festival as a possible meetup.  What do you all think?  I'd like to know if it's mostly just quilting or what.  Do they sell like cool yarn, crochet hooks, needles, etc?  Is it worthwhile to go to or are my $9 better spent on a nice lunch with you gals instead of $9 entry plus lunch?  Grin

Oh and here is a version with pretty much the same info but in nice bright colors & a map Smiley  http://www.azcentral.com/ent/calendar/EventDetails.php?OccurrenceID=122810

EDITED to add: 
link to brochure - warning it's a pdf file Smiley
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Working behind ch? on: January 07, 2007 09:03:18 AM
I'm wanting to make this http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/cassies-summer-outfit.html but I've never encountered a pattern that lists "working behind"

ROW 1: Ch 54, dc in 4th ch from hook & in each st across, ch 1 turn
ROW 2: sk first st,*(sc, ch2, hdc)in next st, REP from * across ending with sc in last st. ch 1 turn
ROW 3: 2 sc in first st *working behind ch sp 3sc in each sc across to last sc, 2 sc in last st, ch 1 turn

Does it mean do sc's from the back to the front? am I working the ch space or each stitch?  row 3 = ack for me right now!
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Need suggestions - which items would sell @ a Comicon? on: December 27, 2006 10:54:29 PM
We have a comicon coming up next month and I'm wondering if any of you can help me out with some ideas for items to crochet & sell @ the comicon?  Dh who I had hoped would help me out with some input has shown that his crafty creativity is on hiatus - I guess - uggh!

The only thing I have seen are the animal cosplay hats & a few posts here on craftster, but not a ton of info even when I googled my heart out!

I'd really like to bring in some extra $, help me crafty chicas help!
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Help me please!! * toddler dress * on: December 20, 2006 11:24:59 AM
Hola!  I'm trying to make this http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Crochet/Projects/BabyChild/LW1396+Sweetie+Pie.htm

and I'm on the bodice part and I don't get where I'm supposed to start this part

Front: With WS facing, skip next 6 (8, 10) sc of last long row, join yarn and sc in next 37 (39, 41) sc; TURN. Dec 1 st each end of next 2 RS rows 33 (35, 37) sc. Work even until 2 (2, 3)" above division, end WS row.

Right now I'm looking at sort of a square with a long strip to the left of it and I don't know if I'm supposed to skip starting at the far left or from the start of the division of the back..?   Huh  I get that the back is going to be split so that snaps can be used to close the back... but where to start it is confusing me. & the long strip I would assume will eventually be joined to the front - right?

             I feel like I'm reading a language from another planet.

Anyone ? ....

6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Need crafty help: fixing ripped knees for 6 & 7 year old boys on: December 08, 2006 06:13:25 AM
My boys have a fit with a standard patch and I'm just wondering if any of you know of a really neat way to fix jeans and still have the lil' guys happy with it.  They keep ripping out their jeans and I'm $ strapped!   I thought of making large appliques of their favorite characters, but am hoping someone else has done it before and has pictures!

Help crafty chicas ! Help !

p.s. if I'm in the wrong forum * sorry * mods move thread? thx Smiley

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Need help: Berroco Mars bag pattern :) on: November 12, 2006 11:15:35 AM
Hoping for some regular english translation of row 6 for the Berroco Mars pattern.

I think I just need clarification.  So row 6 will be 60 st, then each additional round I need to add another sc each time around between the 2 sc's?  Is that right?  I'll have to mark the beg. of each round to know when to start inscreasing the sc's right?  Maybe I do get this... someone please confirm!  Cry

Here's the pattern:
BAG (Make 2)

With crochet hook, using MC, ch 4 and join with a sl st to form a ring.

Rnd 1:  Work 15 scs in ring.  Mark last sc with safety pin for end of rnd and move pin up as you work.

Rnd 2:  Work 2 scs in each sc 30 scs.

Rnd 3:  Work 1 sc in each sc 30 scs.

Rnd 4:  * Work 1 sc in first sc, work 2 scs in next sc, rep from * around 14 times more 45 scs.

Rnd 5:  Rep Rnd 3 45 scs.

Rnd 6:  * Work 1 sc in first 2 scs, work 2 scs in next sc, rep from * around 14 times more 60 scs.  Continue in this manner to inc 15 scs every other rnd, having 1 more sc between incs each time until piece measures 15 in diameter.

Edging:  Working from left to right, work in Reverse sc around entire piece, join with a sl st in first sc.  Fasten off.

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Need help with toddler halter pattern * please! on: October 07, 2006 08:37:20 AM
Here's the link for the pattern

I have completed most of the halter, but now I get to these instructions and I don't completely get it.  Also the picture shows what looks like a shell stitch on the bottom of the halter and I don't see that in the instructions.

I admit to sometimes having slst confusion!  Here's the part I don't get:

Step 1: Ch 56 (56, 60, 60, 66), turn. Slst across in each chain. Slst into bottom
row (first tie complete) Work sc along the edge of hdc rows, up to row 1.
Step 2: ch 56 (56, 60, 60, 66), turn. Slst down each chain, slst into top row
(second tie complete) Work sc along top of beginning chain.
Step 3: ch 56 (56, 60, 60, 66), turn. Slst down each chain, slst into top row (third
tie complete) Work sc down edge of hdc rows, down to last hdc row.
Step 4: ch 56 (56, 60, 60, 66), turn. Slst down each chain, slst into 1st hdc in
bottom row (fourth tie complete).
Step 5: In the first hdc, *work 5 dc , skip next hdc, sc in next 2 hdc. Repeat from *
across, ending with a slst in the last hdc.
Finish off. Leave long enough tail to weave.
10  Arizona / Arizona: Central / Meet up anyone? on: August 17, 2006 09:01:08 PM
I've been out of AZ for the last 2 months and am in definite need for a meet up!  This Saturday is out for me, but maybe in the next few weeks?  I just checked out our old posts and this time last year was when we all went to Gracie's for the 50% off sale, SAS, & Haji Baba --- Fun times!

Anyone else up for a meet up?
