11  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: Star Baby Blanket~Along on: February 10, 2007 06:37:19 PM
So I am starting this agaon.
I tore it out once and am abut to again
It's round 3 I have the issue with
"Round 3: Sl st in next st, ch 3, 1 dc in next dc, shell, *dc in next 2 dc, sk 2 dc, 2 dc, shell. Repeat from * to 5th point. 2 dc, sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch to join. (50 dc/5 ch2 spaces) "

So after I sl st into the chain from last roundI sl st into the next dc right? Then I chain 3 and after that I dc in the VERY NEXT dc right? After doing that I shell into the next dc??? That's when I start the dc 2 sk 2 then shell process right?
I think this is where I lost it last time.

All the pics from the tutorials others had posted on other threads have now become red x's and so I am having a hard time lol. I'll have to post when I get this right and do a step by step and put it in my LJ or on my (soon to be) site.

A pattern I was doing called for me to attach one of those metal things that has the three strand places to a toggle on the side that has the 1 strand loop thing and it was making me angry lol.
I will have to try the round nose pliers thing (as soon as I get another pair lol.
Yeah somewhere in my house there is a place where all the jump rings tgo to escape...maybe i'll find them iwth the socks that go mising...

thanks!  I'm thinking maybe those wooden beads with the large holes might work well.

Those would look really col. You can get some glas ones that have a larger hole in them too and if you wrapped the yarn where the glass showed through a bit it might look really cool too.

I googled and found no tutorial but Ima take a stab at it after seeing the pictures.
It looks like a piece of yarn is pushed through the hole of like, a glass bead and I'm thinking you could either put gluei nside the bead or tie a knott at one end. Then keep wrapping the bead through the hole iwth the yarnin one side and out the other until the bead is covered to the desired ammount.
I would use a thinner wool not chunky or i would use cotton yarn possibly.
I might have to try my hand at this and ee what I come up with then make a better tut.
Here is a tut I found for "felted beads"

19  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / I Hate Jump Rings on: February 04, 2007 07:14:17 PM
It's true I officialy want to go and throw every jump ring I see in the trash.
I have been battling wit hthese buggers for a good few months, even buying a pair of "jump ring pliers" from the local bead store. The result has been launching the things across the room (the rings not the pliers and not  out of anger just what sems to happen.)
So does anyone have any tips or techniques? I have googled and tried a few things but I still seem to have no luck getting them to cooperate.
can I use split rings the same way?

I like it!
Funny story...
When I was young I went to work with my father. His coworker had told me about how he liked to make fried marbles. My dad quickly informed me that he was just joking and that i was not to try it because it was pointless. So I always thought this coworker of my fathers was just pulling my leg and trying to make a mess for my father to clean up hehe.
Now I know better and can show my dad such.
