11  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Sweetpea shawl and lil monkey afghan (Edit: pic link now seems to work!) on: May 20, 2007 02:15:04 PM

This is my first finished object post so I'm a little over excited, I have been waiting for OH to come home because I can't work his fancy new camera!  Anyway, I am posting my sweetpea shawl, which was my first finished corchet project, it was done in October but I didn't know about craftster then so I wanted to wait for my most recent project to be finished before I posted it.

I made the lil monkey set for my friend Marie's baby Daisy, and finished it today.  I also finished a pink and white octopus today for Daisy which was also very exciting (for me at least, and hopefully for them too!).  Anyway, here are the pics, I hope they work!

I am sure I am being an idiot, but where and how do I put the handle flaps onto the fat bottomed bag?
13  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Fairly novice crocheter, need help picking yarns on: April 09, 2007 02:11:24 AM

I learnt to crochet last summer, and so far I've made the sweet pea shawl, 'lil monkey hat and have started the 'lil monkey afghan and fat bottomed bag, which I hope to finish soonish (I'm a new teacher, we have no time outside school stuff!!).

I have several problems.  Firstly, SNBCTHH is american, and I am English and in England, so getting hold of the specified yarns is tricky, although some shipping fees seem reasonable.  Secondly, because I am fairly new to the whole crafting game, I don't really know how to substitute yarns successfully, so I have been trying to get hold of the "correct" yarns.  And some of those yarns are mega expensive!! Huh

I really want to make my sister-in-law the bunny slippers for christmas, and make my mother-in-law frou frou for her birthday in August.  And there are loads of other things I want to make but one step at a time!! Tongue

So anyway, if someone could give me some pointers on this, especially for the projects mentioned above I would be really really grateful.  I've read through the posts and you are all doing amazing stuff!  I love the froggy blanket!

thank you in advance!  Smiley
