1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Money to burn and looking for a good crochet book... on: August 23, 2008 11:48:59 PM
I just got a gift card to Border's and I'm looking for a new crochet book (already have Stitch N' Bitch). Any recommendations? I'm an average crocheter and would love to find some projects to wear or to make for my baby boy. Wouldn't mind a good amigurumi book either. I saw SweaterBabe's book, is that any good? Thanks for the help!
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Need ideas for baby/daddy t-shirts on: November 12, 2007 03:24:48 PM
I have a spawn who's arriving very close to Christmas (Dec. 22) and so the hubby and I have decided to only spend $20 on holiday gifts for each other. I want to make him a t-shirt with a clever saying on it and make a onesie to match/coordinate, but I can't think of any clever sayings. I'm not opposed to something a little off-color, so go crazy! Thanks!
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Magic 8 Baby on: November 09, 2007 10:37:45 PM
OK, it's a bit late, but I wanted to show you all how I dressed my pregnant belly up for Halloween. Original idea was to attach one of those chest-burster aliens to the front of a shirt, but I ran out of time. Maybe next pregnancy...

The response refers to when he's actually thinking of coming out.  Grin

I made four different responses to change throughout the day or whenever anyone asked me a question.The iron-on came out a bit greenish instead of black/gray, but it worked anyhow!
Thanks for letting me show it off!
4  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Aloha-ish fat bottom on: April 29, 2007 10:57:07 AM
For some reason, the combination of colors and the flower remind me of Hawaii. Here she is:

My first attempt at lining anything crocheted. The gathering and lining were done by machine. This was also my first try with a purse snap (if you look really close you can find it) which was surprisingly easy. The pocket was a last-minute addition as you can tell because the pattern doesn't match. Um, I meant to do that.
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / OK, I'm stuck ... help please! on: March 15, 2007 12:44:07 AM
So, I'm working this pattern, and I can't figure out what to do after you make the pocket part. It says not to turn the pocket and then just say to ch 50 (or whatever size) in the round, but I don't see how you do that when there's a piece already made. If anyone can help, I'd be eternally grateful.
Or if anyone can suggest a pattern for something similar (it's an armband to hold an ipod or something while you work out), I'd be happy with that too. Thanks!
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / I lost it ... crochet flowers? on: March 09, 2007 12:43:21 PM
Someone once posted a purse on here that had a beautiful crocheted and felted flower detail on it. The petals were all curly like a magnolia. I've searched and searched but can't find it. Does anyone know what I'm talking about or have any links to something similar? Thanks for the help!

P.S. I've already looked at the one on the Lionbrand site and that's not quite it. I'd modify that one, but type-A personalities aren't good at crocheting without a pattern.

I knew there was a reason I loved this comic strip.
8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / What to do when you have car trouble? Amigurumi! on: January 08, 2007 11:09:58 AM
Me and the honey had to make a three-hour drive to see family for the holidays, so, naturally, I took along a potential project. An hour from our goal, we stopped to get gas and the car battery took the opportunity to croak. While hubby was waiting for a jump and buying a new battery, I took the opportunity to whip up this little guy who made a very nice Christmas gift for my grandmother who's a frogaphile.

Now, Mr. Froggy, you know better than to sit on the dashboard while we're driving!

That's better.

I also made this for my sister:

It's sort of like the Stripes and Stripes scarf from SNB, but I gave it more rows and changed the color scheme and stripe pattern by using this.
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / What the heck is wrong with this? on: December 15, 2006 12:52:55 AM
The past few times I have crocheted in the round (following a pattern both times), my object has turned out sorta lumpy. It is round, but instead of being smooth like a mushroom cap, it gets these dents in it where I've done the increase so it looks like a rounded flower.

Here's what it looks like:

(Sorry the photo isn't better, my camera isn't working right.) Can you see where it gets puffy between the increases?

If anyone can help me with this, I'll be eternally grateful.
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Moms, your opinion please? on: December 08, 2006 01:10:26 PM
A friend is having a baby boy in March and I've been looking for some good patterns for baby blankets. A while back, a new mom had told me that the only blanket she trusted to put in her newborn's crib was a crocheted one because it had such an open stitch she didn't fear it suffocating the baby. Is this true? Should I look for a pattern with an open stitch as opposed to a tight stitch?

And if you have any recommendations for good patterns, they'd be most welcome. (Except the star blanket, my friend saw it and hated it. Of course, that could have been pregnancy hormones talking.  Roll Eyes)
