1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Adjusting size of Toasty Topper? on: November 06, 2008 07:08:32 PM
I want to make Knitty's Toasty Topper (http://knitty.com/issuewinter07/PATTtoasty.html) for my son, but he's almost five, and has a big head, so I'm thinking I need to make it a little bigger.  Do you think using bulkier yarn and bigger needles will be okay?  I know enough about knitting to know you can do that with some stuff, but not enough to know whether it works in every case?  What do you think?
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / My daisy skirt on: July 06, 2006 12:36:00 PM
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. 
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Newbie question on Epson Picturemate on: May 22, 2006 07:59:37 AM
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?
4  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:

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Superfast Baby Sweater with Recycled Silk Trim on: March 11, 2006 12:57:30 AM
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:

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Man's Hat / Neck warmer thing on: February 10, 2006 04:03:52 PM
I can't find a pattern for what I want anywhere, probably because I can't figure out what to call it.  I want something my husband can pull over his head, that comes down and covers his neck, too, kind of like a long ski mask only with the whole face part open.  Does that make any sense?  I was going to crochet him a hooded scarf, but I got to thinking that the whole long scarf part just adds bulk, and you have to mess with the scarf coming undone, etc.  So why not just the hood part, only connected at the bottom to stay in place around the neck.  I'll probably just end up winging it, but I thought I'd see if anyone else has already invented the wheel.

I made this for a friend who wanted a littke nursing privacy, but wanted her baby to be able to breathe:
