11  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / FBB yarn question.. on: February 15, 2008 11:29:29 AM
Ok I finally broke down and bought this amazing yarn I've been eyeing for a while... Patons SWS soy wool stripes in Natural Pink. So amazingly gorgeous. Picture...

What I want to know is will it be enough to make a FBB or will I have to buy another? It's 2.8 ounces and I read the topic on needing less than two balls of Sugar and Cream and hoped that one skein would be enough because I really don't want to spend another $5 (and thats the sale price!) cause I'm a super cheapo. Any help would be great! Thanks!
12  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Help with a amigurumi pattern on: December 27, 2007 06:46:50 PM
I bought this pattern and on the rows I'm having a little trouble. I'm crocheting in the round and the increases are worked a bit different than I am used to. Here is what I'm having trouble with....
Rnd 1: Crochet 10 in a loop
Rnd 2: Increase of 12 stitches from prev row (22 stitches total in this row)
Rnd 3-8: Increase of 6 stitches from prev row (up to 64 stitches)

Has anyone else come across this way of increasing? I'm used to the increasing every other stitch or every 2 stitches..etc. Could anyone explain this to me? I've tried increasing them all in the beginning of the row and also spacing the increases throughout the row. I'm so confused and the author has not returned my email.

And by the way the shape its supposed to be making is an oval.

Thanks for any help anyone can give!

Not sure if this has been mentioned but I would LOVE to do an Amigurumi swap! I love making little crochet animals and love getting them from others too. Anyone up for it?
15  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Retro circle Blythe dress! on: November 18, 2007 11:41:46 AM
After many many many prototypes this dress is finally done! Its inspired by the new Cloud Nine Bowl Blythe's dress. It was a bit of a pain but I think it has to be the cutest dress I've made!

Thanks for looking!

After over a year of wanting, wishing, and drooling, I FINALLY got my little pink piece of fun (early birthday present to myself). Being Ms. Crafty I just had to forego those ugly expensive store bought cases for a super cute one of my own.

And before we begin, I just have to say Micheal Miller is a GENIUS fabric designer! He's my hero.

Side 2

Showing the inside.

The inside is lined with a little white fleece for cushion because I am a huge klutz and drop everything. I used a clear snap for closing and it works perfectly! I actually originally had velcro but it sucked, so about an hour ago I changed it and I am in love!

Thanks for looking!!
17  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Making a Pattern Larger? on: August 31, 2007 10:13:47 AM
I have an ami pattern that I want to make, but I want the final size to be a few times larger (example: like instead of 3 inches, it will be like 8 or 10). How do I manipulate the pattern so that it will turn out the size I like?

FYI this is the ami I want to size up:

Thanks in advanced you all!

My girl was a little low on clothing...so I whipped her up a few things so she wouldn't be running around nekkid!

She's very fashion conscious...hahahhaa

20  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Hook Roll on: July 12, 2007 02:56:28 PM
I made this a few weeks ago, but after seeing cooperduchovny's awesome crochet book I thought I'd share my crochet hook storage.

All rolled up.

The inside will all (minus one) of my hooks.

I love it because each hook has a place and there's still room for a pocket to store scissors, stitch markers, a pen, and anything else I need. Thanks for looking!
