1  Re: 2009 12" Squares- July in Crochetalongs by halfwaynowhere on: July 26, 2009 08:34:55 PM
here are my squares so far-








and i tried getting a picture of them all together, but my cat decided to help (actually, he was helping in the first two pics, too, as you can tell)

the colors aren't bad, per se, but back in january, i was way more into blues than I am now... and as i'm seeing the squares together, i'm deciding that this "sampler" look just isn't for me... I'd much rather do an afghan using all the same square.

i showed these to my mom, and she wants me to do one for her in shades of green, using the april and may squares. too bad I hate working in pieces!

2  Re: looking for a pattern, round pin wheel maybe? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by halfwaynowhere on: January 08, 2009 06:22:27 PM
okay, here goes. Three things to keep in mind-
1. I'm a lefty, so the picture is probably going to be backwards from what yours will look like.
2. I'm lazy, so I used a J hook. This would probably look a little nicer with a smaller hook.
3. The sample in the photo uses eight repeats of the pattern. The written pattern uses nine. Eight isn't enough for it to lay flat, it curves up a bit, so nine would be better, but again, I'm lazy, and didn't feel like ripping it out to start again with nine.

ch 6
join with sl st to first ch to form ring

round 1- ch 5 (counts as DC + ch2). *DC, ch2 in ring. Repeat from * 8 times total. Join with sl st to 3 ch in beg ch 5 (9 DC and 9 ch2 sp total)

round 2- ch 3 (counts as first DC). DC in next sp, ch 2. *DC in next DC and in next sp, ch 2. repeat from * to end of round. join with sl st in top of beg ch.

round 3- ch 3. DC in next DC and next sp, ch 2. *DC in next two DC and in next sp, ch 2. Repeat from * to end of round. join with sl st in top of beg ch.

round 4- ch 3. DC in next 2 DC and next sp, ch 2. *DC in next three DC and in next sp, ch 2. Repeat from * to end of round. join with sl st in top of beg ch.

at this point, you should be able to figure out how to do each round as the circle gets larger. Make it as big as you want, add a fun border, its up to you at this point.

Hopefully this helps. I'm not great at writing patterns, so if you need some clarification on something, let me know.

okay, well this is my square:

I figure when it comes time to piece them all together, I can buy more yarn for that purpose, if I don't have enough. I'm thinking white might be nice to piece them together with...

4  Re: Pattern Testers needed for Kitty Earflap Hat in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by halfwaynowhere on: December 31, 2008 12:11:31 PM
I used caron simply soft, and added ties to the bottom of the earflaps by chaining 50 st at the end of each earflap.

in hindsight, it probably wasn't the greatest color choice. When I showed it to my family, they thought it was supposed to be pig ears, lol. My mom did say that if I made her one in black, she would wear it.

[edit- fixed the pic]

5  Re: WRAP IT UP! how are you wrapping your pressies? in Winter Holidays by halfwaynowhere on: December 24, 2008 11:23:49 AM
I think this is my most creatively wrapped gift:

Its for my BIL. I got him potato chips, which are so lightweight, they'd be no fun to open. So I found a box, duct taped a brick in the bottom of it so that if he shook the box, it wouldn't crush the chips, and then wrapped the whole thing with duct tape, complete with a bow.
The bow was done with a piece of duct tape folded in half lengthwise. If I do this again, I'll put craft wire between the tape first, to make it more poseable, as the loops don't stand out as well as I'd like them to, but its still cute.
