Wow, that's spot on! I didn't need to read the thread title. Cheesy
The shaping is great, how long did it take you?

This is great! I've made plenty of tarn bags before, which I really like. I found the time consuming bit to be the cutting. The crochet was ok, but I know what you mean about strong arms! Out of interest, how wide were your strips? Mine are about 2cm, but curl slightly when I stretch them.
3  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / DORMANT: InStiMaMo : International Stitch Making Month on: November 01, 2011 02:23:35 PM
I've had an idea. Want to play? I don't feel up to writing 50,000 words this year!

InStiMaMo:  Make 50,000 stitches in 30 Days.

The Rules:
  • Any kind of stitch counts, as long as it’s made by hand.
  • Use any medium, and any technique you like, to make anything.
  • Make as many things as you want, just count the stitches. For example, you could make 50 what-nots  using 1000 stitches in each. If you don’t know how many stitches are in your what-nots, work it out, or just make a guess.
  • Nobody is going to count your stitches, just don’t cheat, OK? You will only fool yourself. Wink
  • Take lots of photos and have fun! If you have a crafty blog, post a link below so we can all visit and see what you are up to.

This would be a great time to experiment with new techniques, make something freeform, herd your gifts, or attack that blanket you’ve always wanted to make.

What will you make? I'm going to crochet a cardi from some gorgeous purple 4 ply I bought during the Summer. I keep meaning to do it, but never get round to it.

Very lacy and unexpected - beautiful and inspiring. I particularly like the purple bobbly cardigan (number 21, next to the one you posted from the Gallery).
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: HELP! on: October 19, 2011 03:57:10 AM
Mounting her knitting in a shadow box is a lovely idea, and I hope she passed peacefully.

Do you know what she bought the magenta yarn for? It might be nice if you you could make something related. Otherwise, perhaps something which will be looked at / used regularly, like a beaded table decoration or lacy cushion covers? You could combine it with other special yarns for something larger or freeform, like miniature wall hangings or narrow scarves.

Best wishes,

I have a little girl who would love your Tangled hat. I would probably have to swap it for pink hair though - going through a pink phase. Sad

Those are pretty. What a good way of showing off pretty buttons!
Lovely to see someone from the UK, too.
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Any ideas on making 3d scences that stand up? on: October 10, 2010 12:13:21 PM
Yes, what about walls from a crochet 'sandwich' with a filling of your choice - card, or plywood or cut up milk carton? If it's really big or is going to take a bashing it would be better to make the base structure from wood then cover that with your crochet.

I have had some success reinforcing pieces with florists wire - just double it over and pad the end well to stop it poking holes.

Hope you make something Smiley I love structured pieces.

They're fabulous aren't they?

If you're in the UK, you might want to book tickets for the Saatchi Gallery in London. She's a finalist in the National Art Competition, but you'll have to book quickly because it's only on for a couple of days.

It's probably all down to the discretion of the flight crew. I have used a chunky plastic hook (not too pointy) on a plane, and just checked with an attendant before I used it. She looked at me like I was crackers for asking, and there was no problem.

Watch you don't lose your yarn in the aisle - that might annoy them. Cheesy
