1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Rainbow Wrap on: February 16, 2012 12:39:49 PM
I made this very cool rainbow wrap for my sister! It's triangular like a shawl ...

... but can also be a scarf!

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My Wedding Dress (Midnight Lace by Doris Chan) on: January 02, 2012 01:15:22 PM
I made my own wedding dress!

The pattern is the Midnight Lace Dress by Doris Chan, published in the March 2008 issue of Crochet! magazine. I used an ivory/white worsted weight cotton, and it took me about two weeks. Instead of running the ribbon through the neck, I opted for more of a flapper look and wore it low on my hips. (It seemed to give more shape that way.)

Thank you for letting me share!

3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Trying on Items at Craft Fairs on: October 13, 2011 04:02:44 AM

I'm going to my first craft fair next month (w00t), and I'll be selling crocheted hats. I was wondering how other crafters handle customers who'd like to try on an item before purchase. For an item like hats, would it be prudent to create a "sample" hat that everyone can try on for size? Or would that come off as too OCD for most customers? What have you done in the past?

Thanks for your input!

My neighbor had a baby, so I made him a hat.

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Spiral Ladder Yoga Mat Bag on: August 19, 2011 07:33:00 PM
I recently started taking yoga, quite possibly so I'd have an excuse to make this yoga-mat bag. Here's a link to the pattern: http://flyingtoothbrush.blogspot.com/2011/03/spiral-ladder-yoga-bag.html Works up quickly. I've made a few. Enjoy!

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Kylie Minogue Dress Pattern Translation on: February 25, 2011 08:27:08 AM
I came across a pattern for the most beautiful dress!


Problem: I DON'T SPEAK RUSSIAN. Has anyone made this, or found an English translation for it? Or can anyone suggest a similar pattern (free or purchasable).

8  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Prepster Sleeves Question on: August 22, 2010 04:21:40 PM
Attention those who've conquered the Prepster!

I've started the Prepster and have been checking this board for any tips or tricks. From what I'm reading, it looks like the sleeves tend to be the most difficult.

So, a few things.

I'm concerned that the sleeves are going to be too wide. (This happened with the Frou Frou.) Do the sleeves come out pretty fitted, or should I adjust the arm holes at all?
Like always, I didn't heed the warning to use varigated or twisted yarn and chose Vanna's Choice gray marble. Am I doomed, or will it make that much of a difference?
I didn't see any errata on this one, but has anyone found any glitches in the pattern?

Thanks for your help!
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Rusty disco baby blanket on: August 12, 2010 06:08:52 AM
I guess there's really no better way to describe this project. My friend's having a baby girl, and when I asked her color preferences for a blanket, she said, "No pink." So I used the most antibaby colors I could find: pea green, honey, dusty rose, and espresso (all Vanna's Choice).

The blanket, while blocking. (I added an espresso border to even the edges out.)

And the matching hat.

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Rainbow ripple baby afghan on: June 20, 2010 06:35:43 PM
A very sweet couple in my apartment building just had a baby girl, so I made a blanket and hat.

Small caveatI just moved in, so I don't remember the couple's names or their apartment numberonly the floor they live on. Fingers crossed I run into them again!
