31  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / asking for a crocheter's opinion on CROCHENIT on: January 24, 2006 12:16:14 AM
I'm a knitter (don't shoot!).  I couldn't crochet to save my life - my brain understands the process but my hands refuse to cooperate.  The other day I ran across a reference to crochenit, figured I'd try it out, got a double-ended hook to play with and *tada*, apparently my hands get this.

My mom crochets, but had never heard of crochenit till I showed her what I was doing.....so I'm curious about how similar the processes are, does anyone out there do both, do you think it's a good introduction to crochet, have I ruined my brain process toward crochet for life, do you find my endless questioning highly obnoxious...... 

opinions, hints, tips, beratements....commentary is greatly appreciated, I just want it from someone who at least kinda-sorta knows what they're talking about.
32  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / toe socks pattern wanted....please.....anybody? on: January 22, 2006 10:31:58 PM
Way back in middle school, I was madly in love with my store-bought toe socks (hey, I can knit NOW).  Long, insanely striped, each toe a separate color, cheaply made, over-priced, I bought a pair in each color combination TOE SOCKS. And I mean each toe is knitted individually, not Japanese Tabi style like these, as lovely and useful as they are.

I'd prefer a free pattern (who doesn't), but if you know a good book, please recommend it....alas, I have no means of buying online.....

any and all suggestions, hints, directions, etc. would be highly appreciated.

but please try and refrain from berating my fashion sense TOO much Smiley

oh, and if someone has already asked about this, sorry for being redundant! I didn't find any traces of my beloved toe socks but that doesn't mean they aren't out there.....
33  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / my dyed yarn (thanks mum!) on: January 21, 2006 09:04:22 PM
sometimes moms can totally kick ass.

me mum was given tons of yarn to make blankets, hats and scarves for charity (told ya. KICK ASS.)  most of it was acrylics, not fancy but good for peoples in need.... she came across a coupla a skeins of (no label, but what felt like to her) cotton (she was right), and gave it to me.  half was cream, half was skanky camel-tan with a hint of split pea....

untill I got ahold of it  Smiley

skanky yarn + fiber-reactive dye =

purty yarn (with matching shoelaces - hehe!)

I love rainbow colors.....but I have no idea what I'm gonna make.  I own way too many scarves, and this stuff is a tad thicker than worsted.  hmm.....
34  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / pocket creatures... oh, um, that sounds dirty on: January 20, 2006 09:17:49 PM
Check out this post:
It's only polite.

I made one of knitty's toasty pocket creatures, found here:

I think they're rather cute, in addition to being warm and cozy.

here she is hanging out with buddha

and here I am blatantly showing off more of my stuff

no, wait, um...

anyhoo, I think they work just as well as cute little toys, and I wanna see if anybody else has made any weird little monstery pocket warmers.

so SHARE..... please. Smiley
35  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / lazy girl's "stained" glass on: January 17, 2006 09:06:19 PM
I hate venetian blinds.  Curtains need cleaned.  I decided to attack the windows with cheap acrylic paint.  I think they look neato.

This is one of my bedroom windows:

This is the kitchen window I did for me mum:

And this is for my seven-year-old niece:

Whaddya think? Are they worth the whole maybe ten bucks I spent?

Yay, my first post!
