81  crochet hook question in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by itscute on: December 18, 2006 12:42:43 AM
so i purchasd a bunch of crochet hooks...but honestly i don't know what size they are. 
The size given simply says, 5/6, 7/8, 3/4, and etc.  It's a two ended crochet hook.  I don't know if these are US sizes? or UK sizes, or mm sizes, or what?  I'll take a picture of them when i get back home.  I also have a ruler gague thingy, ( i forgot what they are called.)  And I tried to match up the sizes by sticking the needle thru the holes, (that's what i did with the knitting needles.) but I don't think that works.

I've just been using the BIG one, 7/8 because most of my yarn have been thick...but if i wanted to get into more delicate crocheting, I'm afraid it might not work as well...

please help.

note... the pink one 2nd from the bottom is purchased from the US thus with clear marking, F/3.5 mm

*now with pix*

them all...in a row.

a close up of the numbers...

need more pictures? I can up load them...

**the hooks are a generic brand...no name.  and all it said on the package was 0/2 hook, 3/4 hook, 5/6 hook, 7/8 hook.  Hm...I tried to compare the one i purchased in the states with the ones i got in taiwan, but...none of them seemed the same.  Perhaps I would need to compare them with the brand name hooks.  this is what i get for going for cheaper.

I forgot to say that i printed this out to try out tonight.  It'll probably take me longer as I like to improvise, in the not good way when i do projects, but maybe i'll have ONE maryjane to keep my feet warm.

It's cold here in china where my floor is wood panels. & i have no remote that works with my heater...my remote is only for the A/C...it's odd. anyway off topic. 

that was my long rant to say thanks!!

I made them in two hours...actually 3 since the first one i made, i frogged after making it, and made it sorta matching to the 2nd pair.  I was using up my stash that i'm suppose to use up by the end of this year.  i think I have enough left over to make another pair for a friend.  shall post pic later.

notice how wonky the left one is...I made that one first!

left pair frogged and re-born!!

remade to look more similar!!

**Made another pair last night... the same yarn......So one large skein can make two from my measurements.  also, i think i was making them wrong, with the HDC...hm.  Oh wells.  they still are ok.  I'm giving the second pair to my friend for christmas, though she won't get it til later. 

My dad came in, and was like, what are you making?  I said, shoes.  Then he asked me, how do you know how to make that?  I proudly show him the paper where i printed out your instructions and said, "internet."  My dad smiles.  I think he is amazed at what can be found on the internet...he doesn't use the computer...

i'm so making a pair of these right now!

please excuse the ends...i haven't finished them yet...

the back

I am planning on making the mitten top...I've modify the gloves so that it's smaller...and sorta just winging it as i go... i'm not that organized as to where i keep track of each sc or each double crochet... i just hope the second pair of mittens come out the same.

It is a quick crochet.

** edit for picture

with the mitten top on, it looks like it should have eyes, and be called kermit it's not easy being not green.

anyone else agree?

p.s. i've only made one so far...am scared to start on the second pair.

Here's one leg... it's extremely HUGE...perhaps it cuz i knitted it with the #15s instead...but I really enjoy how the furry parts are added to it. 

I'm making the other leg...I figure i'll just make time extra huge as it is, and then maybe attache some elastic hemms or something.

it's a quick knit...takes only a couple of hours on the big needles.

85  Scissor Cozy in Crochet: Completed Projects by itscute on: December 09, 2006 08:37:37 AM

my Muji Scissors was cold.  this was my second attempt at this cozy...but the first time I tried crocheting back and forth, it took me a really long time to figure out how to do that, I had been only crocheting rounds before...the first cozy I actually crochetted in the lines like i was doing it in rounds...it's odd how sometimes your brain works.  And then I was working and working and working on the lines, and then suddenly it just clicked.  also with making these curves on the sides.

I'm so proud of me...

86  Dead Fish Coaster in Knitting: Completed Projects by itscute on: December 08, 2006 08:35:07 AM
i love short little guilty pleasure projects.  Took only like 3 hours...
I got a new projects book...it's full of little great projects like this...

& here in practice use.  The tail flips up when you place a cup on it...Like a Dead fish...it's kinda cute in a morbid way. 

totally love it.  I can't wait to make more!

P.S. My book is in Chinese, I got it at the bookstore.  If you would like a copy, I can try to pick one up before I leave for China on tuesday & mail it to you.  if you can't find it anywhere else.  If you don't get back to me before that, the ISBN is 986-7758-59-5.

88  Extra yarn- what to do? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by itscute on: December 02, 2006 11:31:22 PM
I have  a extra ball of yarn of Patons Bohemian yarn.

It's about 68 yards, Super Bulky in the Hypnotic Haze.

I used two of it for a garter st scarf for my brother...and have a third left over.  I had originally planned to make it wider thus the third ball of yarn.  But since it's bulky i only use 8 sts and it's still a good width. 

now I have this one left over...what should i make with it.  he picked out the yarn himself...so it's not like I have an idea of what to do with it.
