1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: What happened to CrochetMe.com on: September 24, 2007 09:12:32 AM
Kim is also the new editor of Interweave Crochet. I'm sure that uses a lot of her time up also. I'm eager to see the next issue of crochet me. Hopefully it comes soon.

I'm really eager to see this. I went on Amazon, and they show it coming out in November, so it's probably not available to yarn stores yet.

I'm glad crochet is getting a new stitch dictionary! I love these things.

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / What makes a yarn good for crochet? on: July 30, 2007 09:58:28 AM
What kinds of qualities do you look for in yarns that you are going to be crocheting with?

Do you prefer thick/thin yarns?
Any particular fiber you enjoy/avoid?
How do you feel toward stretchy, elastic-like yarns?

Thanks for any help you can give!

If you wrap and turn while making the short rows, when you work the next full row, you'll want to make sure you pick up the wrapped stitches and work them together with the stitches that they are wrapped around.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Drowning in I-Cord--What should I do with it? on: May 08, 2007 10:40:54 AM
Recently I've been thinking I might like to make a sort-of bead curtain with I-cords by making lots of cords the same length, attaching them to a dowl rod of some sort and adding a bead to the end of each i-cord to hold it down...
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: banana silk, soy and hemp yarn... how is it? on: April 03, 2007 09:59:57 AM
This is the first I've heard of Banana Silk, so I did a search... and found this review:


I was thinking of trying it, but after reading that I have no idea what I would do with it.

I've used hemp in making necklaces and other sorts of things. While it's not super fun to work with after a bit of wear and tear it really softens up. Surprisingly, knitting with it never crossed my mind... but it's worth a try.

The yarn should be available at the end of the month. To get a general idea of pricing, and to preorder, here are some links:

I work at Classic Elite and have had the pleasure of trying on many of the garments in this book. I consider myself a regular medium, with a bust measurement of 37".

While the finished measurement of the garment is small, the garments are designed in a way that makes them form fitting, and they stretch out to hug normal sizes. So, while they measure one size laying flat, when they are worn, they fit because of the amount of give the design has.

I know it's not easy to just trust this, but I just wanted to throw out my experience with the garments. As many of these designs are knit on huge needles, if for any reason it doesn't give enough to fit, at least there wouldn't be a TON of time wasted.

I checked with some women at work, and we've been told that the sizing for the garments is based on how Wenlan usually sizes her fashions. So an Extra Small was designed to fit a size 0-2, Small to fit 4-6, Medium to fit 6-8 and Large to fit 10-12. Of course, there could be some lee-way there.

Also, I was just informed that a garment that measures 24" was put on one of our Small employees with a bust measurment of 33" and it fit beautifully.
