1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: $500 in vet bills and a very emotional weekend later... on: July 13, 2006 05:55:10 PM
My dog had an "incident" somewhat similar to this a while back, although it wasnt craft related.

He used to chew on pop bottles, and every once in a while he would eat some of the plastic.  Well, he also liked to eat underwear (I know it sounds gross, but I guess a lot of dogs do it because they like that it smells like us).  Well, one day he decided to eat both a bottle and a pair of underwear... well, the plastic got wrapped up in the underware and got stuck in his intestines.  Long story short, he got really sick and had to have 1.5 feet of intestines removed.  He survived that and lived for a few more years, but then he got cancer and died.

It was really scary when he had to have the surgery.  We weren't sure for a while if he would make it.

But anyway, Im really glad your kitty made it.

Also you could use the star pattern and follow it for a few rounds doing the points and after you reach the section you would consider the center, I would stop doing the points.  You would just crochet one stiitch per stitch.  After a few rounds the points will become round just like a flower.


Wouldn't you still have to do some type of increase at the corners?  I would say do more increases in the corners to make them more rounded instead of pointy.  But if you dont do any increases at the corners, the blanket wont lay flat.

Thats very incredible!  Im extreemly impressed.  I've always wanted to make a doily.  Im sure your Mom will love it.  The only problem is, if she is anything like my mom, anything you make from now on, she will insist that it is for her, lol. Roll Eyes

wow! is it knitted or crocheted?
as a die-hard sox fan, all i'm gonna say is nice handiwork....

Haha, I appreciate that Smiley  I figured I'd get some flack for being a cubs fan, but I'm used to it, lol.  It's all crocheted.

Thanks guys!  It was my first attempt at freehanding a blanket, so I think it turned out pretty well.  And it's big enough so that she can keep using it through her childhood.

I made this blanket for my new cousin... I finished it back in february, and she was born on April 30th.  Unfortunatly, the Cubs aren't playing very well, so we're all trying not to advertise that we are their fans, lol.  But anyway, the 06 is because of the year she was born, and Edwards is her last name.

And this is the outfit we got to go with the blanket... She has to grow into it still, but she was going to see her daddy play baseball for the first time, so she had to dress the part Smiley

I love the thickness of this blanket!  It's hard to find good solid looking blankets in crochet.  Did you ever find out what book you got the pattern from?  You did a great job!  I love pink and neutrals together, very cool. Cool

Thank you very much Smiley I actually forgot to look for the name of the pattern book, lol, but I just found it.. It's called "GRANNY'S DELIGHT AFGHANS" and it'a a "Lesiure Arts Little Book".  at the craft stores where I live, they have then hanging in small basket type things right in front of the yarn.  I think they cost about $2-$3, so not too bad.

The book is out? Awsome! too bad i preordered it on amazon with another book that doesn't come out unitll april( at the time i didn't know that i would have to wait. i wanted free shipping.... and the other book Sad)
well i can't wait to see more things from the book! Smiley

Maybe they'll ship them seperatly? Huh  One time, I ordered a Harry Potter movie and a Harry Potter book at the same time (it was a package deal) and they were released at different times, but they sent them to me seperatly when each was released.  And I didnt have to pay any extra shipping...

Tinytink - If you increase by a lot of stitches, the extra stitches will not be able to lie flat, and you can create a ruffle that way.  For example, suppose your blanket is 80 stitches wide - if you put two stitches in each of those stiches, and do a couple of rows of that, it should naturally ruffle as all those stitches won't be able to lie flat.  (does that make any sense).  It might be that you have to do 3 stitches in each, or an average of 2.5... you'll have to mess with it and check the number of stitches, but if you increase enough, it should ruffle.

sorry for the hijack!

Oh, I'll try that, thanks!

I really like the scarf... I'm making a blanket and was thinking of putting a ruffle around the edge, but didnt know how... I'll have to look into the scarf pattern and see if that helps!

The flowers are really good too!
