1  Stitch Markers I "Made" in Completed Projects by spacecase71 on: October 09, 2006 02:47:40 PM
I'm not sure I can claim I made them when all I did was find the findings and put them together. Whatever  Wink I like 'em a lot.

Welcome lizzy.cos! I have that magazine too, and that cardigan is adorable.

Also, MopTopStumptown, when I started this project I did a search here at craftster to see if anyone else had made it and found yours. It is wonderful! I hope mine is as nice Smiley

Last count I had about 26 squares done. You could start to see how the back is going to look if I could get a picture taken that is not absolute yuck

Did not let lack of progress on that project, or lack of time, prevent me from starting another one from the same book

A friend and I are working this pattern together while she learns to crochet. We're doing two different colors. Unfortunately, we won't see hers here because she's not on craftster. (I don't understand it, either.)

4  DORMANT: Candi Jensen Children's Crochetalong in Crochetalongs by spacecase71 on: July 05, 2006 05:15:54 PM
Hi all!

I love Candi Jensen's crochet patterns for kids. I just bought Candy Tots and Candy Babies, and I'm going to be making lots of clothes from these books in the upcoming months. Thought maybe there were others who would like to crochetalong.

This is my first project

from Candy Tots. I have 7 of these squares done -- only 151 to go! Cheesy

I like the game, but I also like the helicopterviews from France! And see the lovely towns and the crazy people beside the road.

I agree, this is my favorite part. This is my first Tour. We started watching because my husband recently became interested in bicycling. He was hoping to hear more about the bikes and equipment they use and the training they do, I think. I am enjoying seeing all the landscapes and places they are biking through.

During Stage 1, I worked on my sock

When I picked it up, I suddenly remembered this yarn color is called "Vineyard" which is appropriate for France, and the stripes with the white along the center remind me of the highway. So I guess this is a good Tour project!

6  Ladylike Lace Gloves in Ecru in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by spacecase71 on: June 25, 2006 01:43:39 PM
Just finished these and I love them!

Top view

Palm side

I dug this yarn out of my remnants bin; I made socks of it years ago and had a bunch left. The labels are long gone, but I remember it is Schoeller, and cotton/wool blend, two shades of cream/ecru plied together. It made great gloves. (Also great socks Wink)

This really is a wonderful pattern and the short-row shaping is lovely. (That is something I had never done in crochet before.) I did want to note that I downloaded the errata (Thanks!) but I think Row 44 instructions are still not right; in order for the pattern to work it should say hdc in next 28 stitches not 29.

Thanks for looking everybody!

You're right: that is the side that will form the neckline -- in the middle part. On each end it will be, basically, the shoulder seam. Here's mine:

The pattern construction on this is so cool; No seams, hooray!

8  2 FOs: Fat-Bottom Bag & Short 'n Sweet in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by spacecase71 on: June 03, 2006 06:20:32 AM
Love, love, LOVE this book....

I was in such a fever when I bought it, I don't even remember now which of these I made first  Cheesy

Here's my Fat-Bottom. Bag, that is.

I used remnants from my stash: Bernat Dishcloth cotton for the bag, and a bit of yellow Dale Kolibri for the trim. Flower from Wal-Mart! I had trouble sewing it on, so I ended up just pinning it with a safety pin. So now I can change it around if I want.

Like someone else who has posted, I made my Short 'n Sweet longer than the pattern specified

Stash yarn again: 4 (I think) balls of Reynolds Saucy in Light Emerald.

There's lots more in this book I want to make!

Finally finished swatch

I am very pleased with it. To compare, I also started a sample using some size 10 bedspread weight, but I didn't finish it. I'm satisfied with the Cotton Fleece, although I really liked the sheen of the mercerized cotton. My gauge is good, so I don't think the substitution of yarns is going to be a problem. I'm not excited that I have to order yarn, because I'm anxious to get started!
