21  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: What stitch is this? on: November 11, 2006 07:53:30 PM
The pocket is definitely knit, and the rest of it looks knit too. You might be able to recreate it in crochet though. I'd use double and treble crochet stitches along with chain stitches to get the look.

You might try using black yarn to join the squares together with a bit of a black border between the squares to give it more of a planned look.

Thanks for the reply dnamertz, I've emailed the info you requested.
I could really use some more input if anyone has any.

I won't be able to make it. Sad  Even if I could find a ride up from the Salem area, I need to stay home and try to keep my ferrets cool. Have fun and tell us all about it later.

The Oregon Ferret Shelter http://www.oregonferretshelter.org/home.htm  in Oregon City has had craft bazaars at the PGE building in the past and I've been told that they didn't work well in that location. Since I don't get up to Portland much I have no idea where that is or why it wouldn't have worked for a craft bazaar. I'd like your input on why it didn't work and some suggestions for places that would work better. The shelter is in dire need at the moment and they could really use fundraisers that work. Chris, the shelter mom, could also use donations of money,time and/or handcrafted items if anyone is so inclined.

Some facts about the shelter for anyone who's read this far and wants to know more about it: They are a no-kill shelter which means that they will not euthanize the ferrets unless medically neccessary. Some of the ferrets at the shelter are non-adoptable because they have special needs, medical conditions or are too old. At the moment there are upwards of 135 ferrets at the main shelter, more than they've ever had before. There are numerous foster families and a few satellite shelters who work with the shelter mom. The shelter provides cages and money for medical care to the foster families. They also do "rescues" and will pick up ferrets from the Humane Society when they get them in.
I've just recently started working with the woman who runs the satellite shelter in my area so I'm still new to this and I don't have all the numbers handy.

Thanks for the update Chelsee. We still haven't made it up to Nanaimo yet, but we're planning a visit soon so my husband can pass his resume out to prospective employers.
27  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: reclaimed yarn question on: November 05, 2005 05:07:20 PM
I just finished my first project with reclaimed yarn, it wasn't the easiest thing to unravel the sweater but now that I have my shawl finished it is so worth it.
I used the tutorial on this page as a guide. It's fantastic! http://www.neauveau.com/recycledyarn.html
Here's another one that helped, although I didn't get nearly as much yarn from one sweater as she did. http://www.az.com/~andrade/knit/thrifty.html
The sweater I bought was commercially made and I checked the seams before I bought it. The strand used to stitch it together was the exact same color but slightly thinner. I didn't worry too much about keeping that intact when I was unraveling. Each piece of the sweater yielded one long strand of yarn. I balled them up piece by piece so that I had 5 balls(1 front, 1 back, 2 sleeves, 1 collar).
I made a single crochet triangle shawl out of my yarn and it's fairly large. I haven't measured it, but I'm plus sized and it covers me well.( I'll post a picture of it in the finished section when we finish the roll of film the pic is on.)
I hope some of this helps.
28  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: chopstick/dowel knitting needle tutorial on: September 20, 2005 09:22:11 AM
Thanks for the suggestion Beatlesfan. My mom used to be into dollhouse miniatures for a while and I think she still has some Nutshell News magazines floating around somewhere. I'll ask next time she comes for a visit.
As for stores near me that sell miniatures, the hobby shop I visited was it. Thank goodness for catalogs and websites!
I have seen doll house minis at another hobby shop before but it was much bigger and better stocked....and in a much bigger town than I can get to.

Thank you for scanning all these pages! I love crocheting with thread. I'm going to have to try some of these when I finish my current project.

I managed to get to the closest hobby shop to me over the weekend, but I didn't find anything smaller than a 1/8 inch dowel. This particular hobby shop seemed to focus on role playing games though. I saw tons of game manuals, but not a lot of train or airplane stuff. I hate to rag, but they didn't have any size labels on the dowels or other wooden stuff. Perhaps it's because they're in a college town and don't get a lot of people in wanting to hand build things. It's possible that a different hobby shop would have a better selection of dowels.
