I finally finished my needlepoint! Will post pictures once it is washed/framed. Opened the kit I bought for my next project, to find that it didn't contain nearly enough thread, or needles. The absence of the needles is what tells me the absence of thread might be a factory error. Sent a contact us form to the Dimensions company, asking for all the extra bundles of thread not on the pre sorter strips my kit was supposed to come with, but as of yet no response : ( I want to start my next project!

I learned an awesome crochet technique last night! Interlocking crochet!

 

My computer at home isn't working properly, or I would post a pic of my own work, but here is an image I found on google of it. Interlocking Crochet

 

Isn't is so neat? Granted, its a tad confusing. I was trying to follow a pattern and it wasn't looking how I thought it should look, so I got fed up and did my own thing. (I'm the type who, once I learn the basic principle of swimming, I dive in the deep end.) After doing my own thing for a few rows, I finally got what the pattern was trying to have me do. Oops.

 

When I go home tonight, I'm going to try that pattern again. And maybe, when my comp cooperates again, I can post a pic.

I most certainly do not have time to crochet right now (too much University homework!) but this summer I need to work on several baby blankets for some friends of mine who are pregnant. smile.gif

 

I've been crocheting for at least twelve years.

oh my, a crochet/knitting/needlework thread! :3

I started crocheting when I was, well, obviously quite a lot younger and dumber as I am right now (okay, not a lot younger, but dumber for sure), then came a long pause because I thought I had lost my crochet hook, then during the last 12 months (November last year?) I was forced to buy a new crochet hook, which led me to random crocheting, which in turn led me to a random whale amigurumi with some cotton shoved in and since then I've been kind of active on crocheting. I think I've crocheted four or five hats during this time. I also found my lost crochet hook. xd.png

(I'm currently crocheting a case for a bear hat (which may slightly look like a retarded hamster hat dry.gif I have this future plan that if I ever get the chance to meet one of my certain favourite musicians I'll make him a hamster hat because of reasons) which I'm gonna give to my friend in two days)

 

and I sewed a random clutch somewhere a week(?) before the last day of school this year because I couldn't be arsed to carry all the school things with me in my school bag any more xd.png

Yay for fellow crocheters biggrin.gif I'm currently working on a crochet-a-long afghan along with a few random projects here and there. I've been crocheting since February, so I'm relatively new but a lot of people have said that I'm gifted with it, even a few older people who've been crocheting for quite some time blink.gif

Hey everyone, long time no check in.

 

I've been working on lace. Knitted lace. Yes, I, who complained and moaned about not being able to knit am now knitting lace.

 

It's actually fun! I'm enjoying it a lot.

 

This is what it looks like in the book, though I had to finagle it a lot to get it to my size.

I've started a rather ambitious project...

 

It will involve butterflies and filet. And edging: [link]

 

Any advice?

 

Edit: Forgot to say, I'm currently making a mock-up of the butterfly edging to get a handle on the pattern.

Very pretty.

 

Only advice I have is to get into a quiet room and have ZERO distractions.

 

If you are using a chart, Put a sticky note over the rows you've already finished, so the next line under the sticky note is the one you are currently doing.

 

Good luck!

 

My project, up there, has gotten frogged yet again. I'm waiting to go to my Knit-a-long tomorrow get help.

I've been crocheting for about 2 weeks now. When I started (and much to my surprise), I realized that I'm actually really good at it. :3 I'm currently sewing together my first amigurumi Chikorita plushie; it's pretty exciting to have something so cute to show off.

 

I'm thinking about crocheting a Christmas-y/Winter center piece of some sort for my grandparents and maybe something for my dad and step mom. However, I can't find any good patterns and, since I'm still so new, I'm not sure what the limits of crochet are. I was wondering what sort of ideas you guys might have. I found a pattern for a poinsettia that I'm thinking I might use, but I want more than just poinsettias. I'm also wanting this center piece to not be flat.

 

Any ideas would help. happy.gif

You could do something like this. It looks simple yet pretty. You could even add green and maybe silver yarn to go with it.

 

Pattern is here if you like it.

And I am working on a 100% SILK shirt. Can you believe it? It is so pretty.

Attempting to sew my own Wheatley plushie at the moment, and working on knitting long fluffy wings for my Halloween costume.

 

But I'm still struggling with the concept of making the plush round and not a deformed ball of cloth. ;_;

Me and my friend crochet/fingerknit scarves. Mostly fingerknit, since she likes her crochet to be small e.e but they're really soft and warm!

Thank you. :3 That is a good idea.

 

On another note, I'm wanting to try a crochet pattern I found for a Pomeranian. However, the yarn the pattern calls for is no longer being made. Here's what it says regarding the yarn:

"25g Paton’s Spirit – divided into the darker (orange) and lighter (beige) shades – there will

be more of the lighter shade. (Alternatively use 25g of any brand of dk / light worsted

mohair/mohair mix, in solid or two shades.)"

 

I don't know nearly enough about mohair to be able to confidently buy a different brand of yarn. I just don't know what would work best for amigurumi purposes.

Unfortuantly, I don't know either. I can however, as one of my friends who would know. One of them runs a yarn shop.

Just recently bought a book to learn how to crochet... Only to find I have a knitting needle, but no crochet hook. sad.gif

 

Would a knitting needle work, by any chance?

Not really. The hook part is what you need to crochet, it keeps the loops from falling off the shaft of the hook. I could maaaaybe do it and I've been crocheting for over 10 years now,

 

A knitting needle would be a nightmare to learn on.

 

Crochet hooks aren't expensive. 2 or 3 dollars at Walmart. You should buy a 5.00 or a 5.5. They leave big enough loops for you to see what you are doing but the hook isn't unwieldy and awkward.

 

Those are the ones I use the most.

Yes, finally starting to understand the concept of crocheting! biggrin.gif

Anyone recommend a fairly simple pattern for me to practice?

I only know how to do it with fingers. I'd be no help if you do it with needles :C

This is the easiest pattern I know. It goes rather fast at the beginning then slower as it gets bigger.

 

That is if you know how to do double crochet...

 

Granny Square Blanket

 

If you have any questions on it, like how to do slip stitch, send me a pm. If you don't go to youtube first.
