11  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: New CrochetMe is out! on: September 19, 2006 10:01:36 AM
Yay!  I love Crochet Me!  And I understand your enthusiasm, I had a skirt in the summer issue and I was so excited when the issue was finally up.  I can't wait to really see all the patterns, so far this morning I got to the thumbnails, but none of the patterns will come up.  The server is apparently still having problems Embarrassed

I'm so excited this is finally done and up, check out my skirt on the new issue of Crochetme!  This is the first thing I've designed and written a pattern for, and the first garment I ever crocheted.  I'd love feedback not only on the finished project but on the instructions etc from anyone who undertakes to crochet it.

This is absolutely gorgeous.  I don't live in an area where I need a scarf for warmth, but I'm always lookiing for scarves that are fashionable and cute, and most of them just don't do much for me.  This is beautiful, though.  Thanks for posting.

I have an Epson picturemate, and it claims the photos it prints are waterproof.  It only prints in 4x6 size, but if I get 4x6 transfer paper will this work for transfers?

That's gorgeous.  I have that pattern on my to do list, it's so great to see that someone's actually done it.

Thanks for the compliments.  It's the first baby item I've ever made, I always figured why waste my time making something that may only be worn once, if that, before it's outgrown.  But it went so fast, being so small, I can see now why people like to knit and crochet baby items.  You get such a sense of accomplishment, a whole finished object, in a fairly short amount of time.
19  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Coolest doily shrug ever on: March 11, 2006 01:04:28 AM
I am SO happy with the way this turned out, but I don't think I ever want to do it again, kwim?  Creating the individual doilies was fun, hooking them together while keeping them properly spaced and the whole thing flat was way too much of a pain, of course there's probably an easier way to do it than I did.  But it turned out gorgeous, and my daughter loves it, so that's what's important.  The idea of using doily patterns and putting them together into a garment was inspired by this thread about a camisole Anthropologie sells, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=57274.0.  The general shape of the shrug was inspired by a really long thread on the knitting board where several members ended up coming up with a pattern together.  I don't knit well, so I took the general shape of the pattern and then did something completely different to achieve it.  Here is a picture of the individual doilies before I joined them, and front and back pictures of the completed project:

I crocheted this in a day and a half, it went really quickly, it's the Baby It's Cold Outside pattern from Crochetme (http://www.crochetme.com/Feb_Mar_2005/patt_baby_sweater.html).  I used Patons Divine in rose for the body of the sweater, I don't usually use synthetics but I had some laying around, but the trim is what I'm really proud of, I had a 8 x 72 inch strip of Dupioni silk leftover from a curtain I had cut up for a difference project, and I cut that into strips a little less than a quarter inch wide, wound it into a ball, and used it for the trim.  The white yarn of the flowers was a little bit of yarn from my stash that I long since lost the info for, so I don't know what that was.  Anyway, here it is:
