11  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: ferrety query on: April 21, 2007 01:30:37 PM
I've seen balls that you put a treat in so the ferret can work on getting the treat out again, that might work. Balls with different textures might be good for her. I've never had a deaf ferret, so this is all just brain-storming. You can also put treats in the small Kong toys.
We bought a cat toy for our four ferrets that moves and flashes. We can't leave it with them without supervision though because Nigel can flip it and take the wheels off of it in less than a minute.

I'm sorry about Tachi, ferrets just never live long enough.

We found a bead store down in the Fairhaven neighborhood that looks really nice. My husband saw a Value Village on his way to one of his interviews, and I saw a reference to a yarn store in one of the tourist brochures. I also found yarn at Fred Meyer.
I was told by the realtor we are using that there are many people raising alpacas and llamas out in the Deming area outside of Bellingham just in case anyone's interested.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help. I wish the AntiCraft had more crochet  too, it's a fun site.

I  realize that these crochet magazine sites won't all be to your liking, they aren't all to mine either, but I'm just going to post them and let you decide for yourself. I sometimes find interesting things in strange places. I'm a crocheter, so that's what I have floating around in my bookmarks.

My husband is looking for work in the Bellingham area with the intention of moving us up there in the next month or so. We'll be coming up on a "scouting trip" next week and I was wondering what stores to look up in the phone book. I know there's a Michael's in Bellingham, but I was wondering about yarn stores, bead stores and thrift stores. I was also wondering if anyone knows about a crafting group in the area.
Thanks for your time. Grin
16  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Doctor Who amigurumi on: March 15, 2007 07:08:14 AM
These are completely amazing! I remember trying to bribe my friends to let me watch Dr. Who at their houses because we didn't have a T.V. at my house. My daughter and her friend are completely addicted to the new series now so I finally have someone to watch it with!
I'd love a tutorial if you can pull it off. I understand about eyeballing stuff  and not remembering exactly how you did it though.
17  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Why do there seem to be so many knitted lace patterns, but few crochet? on: March 13, 2007 03:03:11 PM
I've got a bunch of old McCalls Needlework and Crafts magazines and most of them have a few patterns made out of lacy blocks. Many tablecloths, luncheon sets, and shawls are made this way. You might try searching for this type of pattern

I've been noticing knit and crocheted scarves on Rory and Lorelei on Gilmore Girls. Most of them have been knit, but a few are definitely crochet.

Another good place to go is colleges.  At the end of the semester when kids are moving out of the dorms they throw out so much usable stuff.  Of course, check with the college office to see what their policies are.

Also try the neighborhoods around the college. We lived in a college town for a while and the kids would pack the surounding apartment complexes. I've heard of people finding entire computers (in good working order) in the  dumpsters because the owners couldn't fly home with them at the end of the school year. We got quite a bit of furniture just from people moving out of our small complex. I always wanted to borrow a truck on moving day and troll the neighborhoods for stuff but we never did.
20  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: What stitch is this? on: November 11, 2006 08:06:54 PM
Don't worry, I had to squint at it for a while before I realized that those were not any crochet stitches I'd seen before but they did look similar to knit stitches I'd seen.
I'm just a beginning knitter, so I don't always recognize the stitch patterns.
