A)  Got a friend who loves wine? Pick up an inexpensive bottle of wine and make a crocheted gift bag!  It’s simple to do with a single or a double crochet and a simple [...]

Measurements (again)

December 17th, 2008 · No Comments

In a prior post I talked about how important it is to measure when you’re working.  Well, at no time has it been as obvious  to me than it was today.
I had finished the very last piece of the slip-covers for the love seat (talked about in prior posts) and was beginning the assembly portion [...]

Words of Wisdom

December 16th, 2008 · No Comments

I am seldom working on one project at a time, in fact, I’m nearly always working on at least two (and sometimes more) …. depending on what else is going on I am using a different hook on each item to boot.
So you’re wondering what the problem is? Well simply put the hook and the [...]

Word to the Wise

December 16th, 2008 · No Comments

So, this is a bit of a red face moment for me! I’ve been crocheting for YEARS. I am testing a new cover for a living room chair and I’ve been a good doobie and measured the cushions and all, and I have it all carefully managed right?
Umm that would be no.  I wailed through [...]

Yarn Bag

December 14th, 2008 · 2 Comments

I mentioned in another post that i made a little ‘pouch’ to hold my yarn and hook and keep my dog away from it while I worked. You might be wondering what in the world I was thinking! But, it was really pretty simple!
So here’s the drill:
I typically work with 5 - 6 oz skeins [...]

This one doesn’t matter how big or small you want it, it only depends on what you want to fill it with.  Whether it’s a bell or catnip, make it appropriate for your four legged friend!

Battle of the Yarn and the Dog

December 14th, 2008 · No Comments

My dog (like most pets) thinks the whole world revolves around him (and typically this is pretty close to right!) so I need to warn you about a few things when you’re crocheting with a pet around!
A)  Get the yarn out of the skein! He LOVES the paper on the skeins of yarn - [...]

Saga of the Whites (Part 2)

December 14th, 2008 · No Comments

So I told you about this ‘3 lbs.’ of white/off white yarn I bought on eBay.  I discovered another problem with it.  The stuff smells to high heavens (which for some reason I didn’t notice before).
So I just sprayed all the skeins with Febreeze and I’ve got it on the porch but that’s not what [...]

So I am wrapping up the slipcovers on the love seat and I have been putzing around with the other yarn that I just bought - remember those? I talked about them in this post.
So, here’s what the decision came down to. Let’s talk about the really nice one first:
I have a chair that’s exactly [...]

Pets & Yarn

December 12th, 2008 · No Comments

So I live with a dog and a cat.   Now I anticipate the cat playing with the yarn when I’m working but I don’t expect it from the dog.  He’s a baby - he’ll be 3 before you know it - but he has *no* idea he’s a dog most of the time.
So when I [...]
