21  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knooking - Knitting with a modified crochet hook on: December 31, 2010 11:27:49 AM
I've tried knooking with a locker hook.  It turned out pretty neat, but I think I'd prefer it with a smaller hook and finer yarn.

How many loops of the new color would I need to pull up for, say, one square on a chart?

Each loop on your hook during the forward pass counts as one stitch.
23  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: Need help/guidance in figuring out part of recently bought pattern!!! on: December 18, 2010 09:30:25 AM
I don't have the pattern, but I looked up photos of the completed object, and it looks like the mane is just made up of crocheted spirals that are sewn on.  To crochet a spiral like that, you generally crochet a chain, then turn and crochet multiple stitches into each loop of the chain (usually two or three sc into each chain space).  The more stitches you crochet into each chain space, the more it will curl.

Does that help at all?

I think it'd be easier to help you if you were a bit more specific about what you're having problems figuring out.  Is there a specific part of the instructions that doesn't make sense?  Is it a problem with crocheting the pieces for the mane, or with assembling them?  If you give us more details, it will be much easier to help you get it figured out.
24  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Kids' wool hoodie from Bernat on: December 13, 2010 06:26:59 PM
Did you do a gauge swatch with your yarn before starting the hoodie?  I've never used the Bernat Baby Softee yarn the pattern calls for, but most of the other baby yarns I've used tend to be more of a sport weight than a worsted.

If you used wool, maybe you could wash it in hot water and shrink/felt it.

I think it turned out pretty cute either way, and with it being large, it could probably be worn next winter as well.

The one with the hood reminds me of a bonnet, the ruffly edge pointy one reminds me of clowns, the ridged one does indeed look like a beret, and the other cap makes me think of golfing caps.  They've got a lot of personality with all their different hats.  Very cute!
26  COOKING / Dessert / Re: One woman's quest to save the spice cookie on: December 08, 2010 06:43:01 PM
I adore these cookies, and make them all the time (almost exactly the same recipe, minus the fresh ginger, I'll have to try that next time!).  Though, my family always called them gingersnaps growing up.  You can imagine my surprise the first time somebody offered me a store-bought gingersnap and I got an entirely crunchy hard cookie.  I much prefer my cookies chewy.  Anyway, hooray for sharing the spice cookie love!

I think it looks great!

Little black beads for eyes, to look like charcoal lumps.  You could take a toothpick, dye it orange (food coloring or paint ought to work), break it in half, stick some glue on the broken end, and jab it into the middle, leaving the pointy end sticking out like a carrot nose.  An appropriately shaped button, of course, would be infinitely easier.  You could do some black beads for a charcoal smile as well.
29  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: type of yarn to use on: November 20, 2010 01:29:58 PM
Acrylic can actually work quite well for dish cloths.  It's nice and scrubby for getting gunk off the dishes.  Or to exfoliate skin.  For kids face cloths though I'd probably go with a natural fiber like cotton or bamboo.
30  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Ask Debbie Stoller... and maybe win her new book! Call for interview questions. on: November 17, 2010 07:31:08 AM
I just started knitting with any seriousness last week and have yet to get any books.  So I guess my question is, how do you knit in the round with two circular needles instead of double-pointed needles?
