21  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Armwarmers from Topshop on: January 07, 2007 08:32:47 PM

22  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crocheted Hotpants?? on: January 05, 2007 02:03:02 AM
So... summer has finally arrived here and (of course!) I'm trying to think of summer accesories to crochet...
I've been killing myself in pilates all winter and therefore, I really feel like doing something sexy and tiny...  Roll Eyes
I've been thinking about making myself a pair of crocheted hotpants thin cotton thread... this is my question so far...
I thought I made them starting as a mini mini skirt, quite loose and to be tied at the waist and then crochet a bit on the inside
between the legs, joining it and turning it into a pair of shorts. The last crocheted part would be done not at the last row of stitches, but a bit earlier, so it would still look like a mini skirt when worn. (this is beach wear of course!!)
Ohhh, I hope the explanation was understandable... i always believe my english to be very decent until i have to explain some project... Undecided ....still, the idea works in my head pretty well

MY DOUBT IS.....! Do I crochet the skirt part of the hotpants in a circle (increasing stitches as i go along or maybe changing to a bigger size of hook) or do I make two parts (front and back) and the sew them together...HuhHuh?

Hopefully someone will help because this is the only thing that is preventing me from starting it...! (already have everything i need!)

sorry about the messy explanation...!!
23  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / DORMANT: Creole Bag on: December 18, 2006 01:31:23 PM

So i had been looking for a crochet pattern of a bag that i liked and i found this...

http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/creole/creole.html (no longer available)

anyone up for it?? I think it's relatively easy and quick... which means instant rewarding...! I might try making it just a little big bigger... let me know what you think...
24  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Binding off Rib on: December 10, 2006 10:52:10 PM
OK.... So I've finished knitting the circular shrug thing... (posted here on craftster) and I only have one problem that prevents me from wearing it... the shrug finishes with a 2x2 rib... but I don't know how to bind that off without taking the stretchiness of the rib..... I'm trying to BO it in the only way I know... which is by knitting two stitches and then passing the first one over the second one..... what can i do?? I KNOW there must be a way to do this right... help!  Huh
25  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Flower applique on knitted tote on: November 04, 2006 12:33:09 PM
Ok... so I know my flower applique is not half as pretty as all of the ones I've seen here but... I still wanted to share it!
I knitted the bag (it was my first finished project) and then added the flower applique (my first applique as well...!) and the fake little buttons in the straps.
I know it looks a bit messy,, but still! I'm proud and happy!!

26  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Tote with Flower! on: November 04, 2006 10:49:38 AM
I've been wanting to post this for ages... but my camera ran out of battery....! This was actually my first finished knitting project.... and i'm very proud with how it turned out.  Wink This is a fantastic knitting project for the absolute beginner, very easy, doesn't need a pattern and very wearable...!
It's quite big, big enough to carry all my books and stuff while i walk around uni and I can even fit without a problem a sweater and a another knitting project as well. It has no lining, which to my surprise it didn't need.
I made the flower applique out of felt, and it was my first try ever at applique as well.... 

I think I'll probably make a few more in different colours, sizes and appliques....! So excited...!  Smiley
27  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Anthropologie Sweater on: November 02, 2006 12:34:07 PM

i fould this sweater that I like in Anthropologie


but it's obviously too expensive!

does anyone know of a free online pattern for a similar sweater? Long, comfy and with 3/4 sleeves???  It doesn't have to be exactly the same... it can have cables, a different neckline... but a similar idea and feeling to it.

Any help will be appreciated! Thanks!!!

28  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Learning how to spin.... on: November 02, 2006 12:24:34 PM
Hi... I've been looking in the spinning section for quite some time, and i'm in love with all of your amazing work! It's great...

I live in Peru, which curiously has some of the best yarn in the world but that isn't available here! All the peruvian yarn is made straight for exportation.... Nobody knits here! All the yarn you can find is acrylic and boring!! Very Very Very frustrating!! I'm the only person my age that I know that is a knitter (my grandmother and my mother knit as well...) Well, you get the point. This is most definitely not paradise for a knitting enthusiastic.  Embarrassed

However...! I found a shop that sells a spinning wheel and all the materials needed for spinning... (it actually makes them for exportation as well, but they would be willing to sell them to me as well..). I need to learn how to spin. I've seen some amazing stuff in here, is there a web page that teaches you how to do it? A book? Help!!!

29  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Fair Isle Cardigan... with colour change!... and pockets! on: September 26, 2006 10:26:11 PM
What do you think?
I just love the pockets... best change ever. it's such a cozy warm cardigan that pockets just seemed necessary. It's perfect to go for a walk with my dog and take nothing out but the house keys in them. Everyone comments on how pretty it looks, and I have fallen in love with how comfortable it is...

30  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / My short and sweet and two fat bottom....... on: September 21, 2006 01:54:48 PM
Considering I just got my digital camera, i need to catch up and upload all of my projects...  So here are three of them...

First, my short and sweet..! I think I might have done something wrong with the edgings because it shortened around the edges... nevermind, worked out for the best! I love it buttoned high up the front,,, hopefully you can see it from the photo....  The lavander color is not what my first choice would have been except that my bf agreed to go yarn shopping with my for the first time and he loved that colour.... had to please him!

And here are my two fat bottom bags... I couldn't find round handles as the pattern required... but it also worked for the best..! Cheesy Bought a pair of bamboo handles, changed the handle flaps a little bit and now I can make as many fat bottom as I want and just keep changing them... Because of the shape of the handles, you can remove and change the bags as wanted.... I am EXTREMLY pleased with the results...  I added some buttons with cute stars to the dark one... All of my friends have fallen in love with them and can't believe I made them myself (not a whole lot of craftsters down here in Peru....!) So.. here they are...! Let me know what you think!
