I went to my dad's house and I came back with a big huge box & some Wal*Mart sacks full of yarn and material!!
Then when Ross came over, he left a bag o' yarn, also!! OMG I AM SWIMMING IN YARN!! Any ideas of what to do with it?

Lewisham knitting night [Apr. 26th, 2006|11:46 pm]
We Love Crochet

If anyone's in the SE area of London, you might like to know that we have a very (very very) informal knitting/crochet group on Monday nights at the Fox & Firkin, on Lewisham High Street. Knitting, crochet, other random crafts, bring it all! (I crochet, myself - so far a bit of a minority interest, everyone else knits, so come and support me with one-stick-ness!). Drop a comment if you'd be interested, and I can double check on times and whatnot.

hello, I am new to this community and am desperately seeking an easy pattern for a crocheted stuffed or puppet that is a monkey. I am hoping to make it for my nephew for his birthday near the end of may. I appreciate any and all help. Thanks in advance.

teaching crochet: easy beginner projects? [Apr. 20th, 2006|02:52 am]

I'm invited to a crochet party on Saturday. I'm going to help a few nursing school students learn to crochet! The girl who's throwing the party is going to nursing school, so these are all her buddies from school who want to learn to crochet. I think this is pretty neat. I get to teach smarties how to crochet.

I figured that I would make them a hand-out of different things such as good Web sites to check out, and maybe some basics, although I could just give them a link to a Web site that will teach them all the basics.

Anyone have any favorite Web sites that you would recommend to a crochet newbie?

Also, what advice or tips would you tell someone who was just learning to crochet?

And finally, can you think of any easy, super quick projects that they could make in a couple of hours with cheap acrylic yarn? I was thinking of having them make a fragglerock hat in a baby or toddler size. Here's an example of a fragglerock hat:

christmas girt ideas [Apr. 14th, 2006|05:58 pm]

I need some ideas! This is cross-posted a bit, so I'm sorry!
I have almost limited funds, but I have a huge yarn supply...and thread supply, so my funds in yarn and thread are almost renewable.
I embroider and sew and crochet. The last time I tried to knit, it was a disaster!
I have a list of a number of gifts I need to make for Christmas, and so I was hoping that y'all could give me some guidance!

*a 13 year old cheerleader-she like to be a cheerleader; she likes orange, purple and daisies.
*16 year old best friends- they love candy, chocolate, and scarves.
*mom-she loves purple.
*grandma-she loves anything that I make.
*great grandma-she is just like my Nanny.
*boyfriend's mother-she's one of those clean ones...she likes blue and tan (that's what the living room is done in).

*dad-he likes blue, green, and red.
*boyfriend-he likes to rope, horses, and blue.
*16 year old cousin-guitars, guitars, guitars.
*9 year old cousin-I have no idea. He's not my cousin (he's by boyfriend's).
*grandaddy-he likes to fish, but can't anymore, because he's 82.

I have been thinking a lot of giving this community a new makeover. I think that this looks a little wintery...and so I would like to know what y'all want! If you guys like it the way it is, or have any suggestions...please let me know.

I know that I am annoying, but, I just want to make you all feel comfortable!

Thanks for reading!

Love,
your maintainer
