I think this is gorgeous dress! It must feel great to know you made it yourself. Iv'e always wanted to try something with pickups! Are the pickups attatched to a lining underneath it?

YAY, good job on your first crochet thing, I love the colour too:)
That is my favourite smiley of all time, when I scrolled down and saw it in the second picture my face looked just like it

Thank you, I like the colour too, the yarn looks much more vibrant when crocheted!

Congrats! A hat is definitely ambitious for a 1st ever crochet, good job!
I agree, crochet is far easier than knitting. I learned crochet first, and I think that is the reason I am having a hard time learning how to knit, haha.

Thanks! The hat wasn't hard to make, so I'm very glad I choose it as a first project. I have yet to knit anything, but for now, I'll continue to improve my crochet Smiley

This looks great, and I like the color.  I've been wanting to try the pattern out myself, but I thought it would be sort of hard to make.  I'll have to try it when I buy some new yarn, and finish my other projects 

Thank you, I'm proud of how it turned out! The pattern was easy, once I got past how to start crochet in a circle. For me, just figuring that out was the hardest part

It's been so long since I've last posted anything on Crafster! So here I am, thinking of posting this up. The first time I tried to knit, that didn't work out too well...but then I saw this really cute crochet hat by ArrghMatey, and that had me thinking I could try to crochet, and see how I like it.

This is my very first crocheted item, and I'm very happy with how it turned out! There are certainly mistakes here and there and I'm sure I could work on my tension a bit, but other than that, I love it! Crochet is actually really fun, and in my opinion, a lot easier than knitting. The pattern was very easy to follow once I got going,  so I recommend it to all beginner's like me, who want to take a stab at it. I'd also recommend keeping a strict count of how many stitches you've made, since that's probably why I had to redo serveral rows a few times.

Thanks for looking everyone, comments are most welcome!

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can you unshrink a sweater? on: December 30, 2008 04:26:32 PM
I agree with the blocking method. However, if your sweater has shrunken length wise, I'd advise getting it soaked and hung on a hanger to dry, so the extra weight will lengthen it a bit. I hope that helps!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / A Pattern like this scarf? on: December 30, 2008 04:17:49 PM

I would really like to make a scarf that looks like this, would anyone happen to know a pattern for/close to this kind of scarf? Any help is appreciated, thank you in advance!  Cheesy

Thanks for the compliments guys! It's nice to know that it at least came out looking decent  Cheesy

Well, not really before Christmas. It's kinda late to post, but I couldn't get the pictures until now.

I have a friend at school that is moving, and therefore I won't see her at school again after winter break. Thus so, I decided on making a hooded sweater for her as a going away present! I used the McCall's 4261 pattern for a zippered jacket, and altered it just a bit. Overall, I'm rather pleased with the result! I'm still new to sewing, so I learned a lot from this project. My sister modeled it for me, because it just doesn't look as good on me, as on her  Tongue

The hood here is lined with a yellow knit jersey. It took me a while to figure out how to sew it *sigh*

If you look closely, you can see the little pleats I put into the sleeve!

Hopfully, she won't be able to pick out my "beginner's mistakes", attatching the hood proved more difficult than I thought. Oh well.
What do you guys think? feedback is much appreciated!  Cheesy

I've been looking for a newsboy cap in FOREVER! Unfortunately, none of the ones I've seen fit what I was looking for. I'm so happy that THIS is definately the end of my search. The design is really lovely, and unique! Great job!  Wink

Like many others, I am eagerly awating the pattern!  Cheesy

^ this site has TONS of great patterns...for FREE! The only thing you have to do is sign up, and you can download as many patterns from them as you want.

Try to search for the "Steffi" and "Hikaru" jackets, you could probably alter to them to fit your satisfaction. Though I'd recommend using "Hikaru", because that's a DEFINATE military jacket.


I hope that helped!
