I definitely know what you mean. Our Northern has a wide selection of black, orange and flourescent green red heart supersaver.
12  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: More good patterns? on: April 10, 2006 06:33:39 PM
I think it's a lot more difficult to find great crochet patterns, you really have to sift through a lot. The website www.crochetpatterncentral.com is a good place to start the search, it has links to a ton of free patterns (that you definitely need to sort through). Sometimes you need to be inventive and picture something in a different colour, or on a different body type, too.

I really like it. I noticed her knit vest, but crocheting would be so much faster! I love the colour.
14  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: Bunny Slippers size? on: April 09, 2006 08:43:51 AM
It says that they are 91/2" long. You could make them longer by making the beginning chain a bit longer. Since all of the increasing happens on the ends of the oval, it should be pretty easy to add length.
15  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / The Crafty Wedding Craftalong! on: April 09, 2006 08:18:05 AM
When we started the Wedding Swap, pibbgirl suggested a craftalong as well.
I figured, instead of themed months, we could do a list/pictures sort of craftalong.
First, post a list of all the things you need to craft, then, post pictures as you finish them.

Here's my list: (Our wedding is on July 29, 2006)

-Save the Date cards
-Hotel info/info about the city/informal invite to the BBQ the day after
-invitations and RSVP cards
-3 bead bouquets, 5 boutonnieres and 2 corsages
-jewelry for me and the bridesmaids
-tiara or headbandy thing for me
-2 Short n' Sweet lacy bolero things from the Happy Hooker
-some sort of lacy wrap for me
-my bridesmaids presents
We haven't decided what to do for our questbook yet, and our centrepieces are going to be easy board games like operation and Kerplunk, so we might decide to make platforms to display them on or something. The room we are in doesn't really need decorations, although I might get our parents to do pictures of us as kids and stuff, since they really want to be involved somehow.
16  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Teaching left-handed crochet? on: April 08, 2006 09:09:22 AM
I think she'll probably go buy a book or two when she goes home to have here baby, but for right now we are in a town with general stores that barely carry magazines, let alone books. It definitely makes it harder. I had to look through everything I brought with me and find a book that had left-handed instructions in it, but the pictures aren't very good.
I think that what I am going to do is crochet swatches right-handed before, and practice a bit left-handed myself. Heck, if it manages to feel comfortable for me, then I will never have to turn my work again!  Smiley
17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What is the name of your LYS? on: April 07, 2006 04:09:50 PM
There's one way out in Orleans (east end of Ottawa) called Wool N' Things
18  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Is crochet harder than knitting? on: April 07, 2006 12:12:24 PM
I was just trying to explain this to someone yesterday! I think that the big difference that makes crochet seem easier is that mistakes are easier to fix. There is no fiddling around with dropped stitches, reverse knitting and twisted stitches, since you only have one stitch worth of loops on your hook, not the whole width of the project.
19  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / CANADA / Re: Canada Bound on: April 06, 2006 03:40:47 PM
Oh, definitely the comfort food, even if that's not crafty! In most northern stores, you can barely get things that are staples in Southern Canada, let alone things that are from abroad. If she's crafty, she might want some crafty supplies, too, or a list of online stores where she can get food or craft stuff.

Wow! Great information.
Whoa, I was expecting the qiviuq prices to be high, but I would probably be shot for spending so much money on a hat! I suppose it would be one fantastically warm and special hat, though.
