1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Newbie on: April 06, 2006 05:25:39 AM
Goodness. That must have been hard on the eyes! Well done for sticking with it. I have been working on a project in laceweight yarn for months now, but put it away in the bottom of a drawer a month ago, bored with doing the same thing over and over again. Anyway, what an inspiration.

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Teaching left-handed crochet? on: April 05, 2006 09:35:08 AM
I am a left-hander, but I learnt right-handed after a aborted attempt to learn facing my friend. Okay, I am slightly ambidextrous, but with crochet both hands are active, and neither need to be predominant. I would just try and teach her right-handed and see where you get to.

I learnt to crochet specifically because I wanted to learn how to crochet with wire. I learnt at the hands of a very good (and patient) friend. It seems so long ago, but it was only last August! I can't imagine a life without it now.

Bear with me just a few minutes while I try and work out what it is I am trying to say.

You may remember that before Christmas there was a trend for all-in-one piece crocheted shrugs/boleros? I reckon that it is possible to make your top in a similar manner, but maybe using two rectangle type pieces crocheted together. As you get to the full width of the pieces, I would reduce the stitches in the middle. You could either do this by working from each end, or by using different stitches. I think it is probably better to do it from each end, just so that you get that curved neckline. Then again, you could just look at a standard pullover pattern to get the neck detail.

Do you get my drift? I am not sure that I do. Anyway, if I were more confident with patterns I would try and write it down. Ummm.
6  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: Crochet Olympics Official Thread... on: February 07, 2006 09:05:01 AM
Well, I am new to this forum but have recently signed up for the crochet olympics. I only finally decided yesterday that I would make a small crocheted bag following the origami pattern in the folk bags knitting book. The challenge here, of course, is the transferral of the pattern from knit to hook.

A little bit about me: I only started to crochet last August, so am a bit of a novice. But since then, I have really taken to it. It is great fun and passes the time in the evenings.

Unfortunately, the run up to the Olympics sees me in bad shape. I have a terrible cold which only seems to be getting worse as the week goes on. It is a real bind, and I have not been able to get out and do the hunting for the perfect yarn! Ahhhh. And the opening of the games looms large...
