1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Double Knitting - Rainbow Scarf on: March 07, 2012 06:18:44 PM
I LOVE THIS! I have been wanting to try double knitting for a couple years, but I haven't wanted the frustration I thought I might feel from having to constantly start over. Maybe this project has inspired me to give it a go...?

Thanks. You should give it a try. Don't give up.

So beautiful---the design, the colors, everything. Grin
I need to learn how to double knit.

Thanks. Its really easy. If you can do a 1x1 Ribbing you can double knit.

This is my first double knitting project. Not finished yet, but I am very proud of it.

Yarn is from knitpicks.com
Pattern - http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/rainbow-scarf-10

I did a few things different from the pattern. I did an invisible cast on and a different edge technique.

Anyway, Enjoy !

Hey Craftster.

Just wanted to show some of my Thread Earrings that I made. Smiley Not all made on the same day, just lazy with the posting.  Grin
This was one of my very first ones.

Second one. Getting better with practice.  Cheesy

Decided to try an open look.  I think I might add a gem in the center.

Earrings with a twist.  Cheesy  These are my Twisted Tread Earrings.  Wanted to try something new and different.
(Blue, Purple, Black)

Took a few tries to get the twist just right. Wish I had better pictures to show the details.

Thanks for looking.

???I'm having trouble with it too.  I have done this twice and still can't find directions for row 28.  Either that or I have mis-counted as I've gone along.  Very frustrating. Embarrassed

Sorry for the delayed response. I've been away from craftster for awhile. (work, work, work, blah Undecided)
Anyway I'll try to see if I can help you as much as I can, if you haven't solved it by now.
PM me if you are still stuck.

Any patterns or tutorials in the near future. Please  Grin
I would love to know how you connected the arms
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocheted Aluminum Crochet Hook Case on: July 09, 2010 10:26:06 PM
Hey everyone.
 Just finished my latest project. A Crochet Hook Case.
Now I've had this pattern link saved in my bookmarks for a while and recently decided to use it due to a home renovation.
While moving some boxes with my craft stuff; one them happened to tip over spilling all my hooks across the room. Not good.  
Anyway, they needed a safe place and this is what i made.

This case is for aluminum hooks. (trust me i have more than what the picture shows  Cheesy )
It crochets quickly and in one piece. No fastening off. YAAAAAA Grin
I now i have to make one for my steel hooks.

Here are the links:
Aluminum- http://web.archive.org/web/20010820230737/members.aol.com/lffunt/alhookcase.htm
Steel- http://web.archive.org/web/20010711180209/members.aol.com/lffunt/sthookcase.htm

WARNING : I found some errors in the aluminum pattern. ( or it could just be me. No one else seems to be having this problem hmmmm.  Huh ) Somewhere around the spine section where you are asked to stitch in the front loops only, you will realize that a row of your free loops that are suppose to be in the back isn't; so be careful. Also the length of the back piece is a little to long.
I will try to find out where exactly and post it at a later time and also if there are any errors in the steel pattern as well.

Happy Hooking  Grin

yaaay Thanks Guys

These papercraft models are super addicting and fun! I've never tried anything as dimensional as the one you did though, most of mine have been all squares.

You did awesome with this!

They are very addictive and loads of fun.  You should try one.  Doing another one as we speak. This one is a lot smoother.

very cool, this looks like it requires a lot of skill  Shocked

Not so much skill involved...more patience than anything, but still fun lol.

That's really cute. So, is it folded paper? *goes off to google...*

Thanks. Not folded so much but more like strips of tab paper glued together (lots of cutting and gluing).
Here is a site to check out.. http://paperkraft.blogspot.com/

That's really cool! You should make Luigi next. Cheesy

 Thanks. unfortunately they don't have one of Luigi.  maybe when i get better I'll make my own.
