Crochet Club

Posted on October 8, 2010 at 1:24pm 4 Comments

Last evening I went to the second gathering (actually it is the third one, I missed the first one) of the crochet club at my local library. I mentioned in a prior post that I didn't feel comfortable at the first one that I went to. But I stuck with it and went Thursday, and I will say that I had a wonderful time! I got help on making a granny square, for some reason I can't seem to get it right. My square come out good and I have a pattern for a scarf that I'm going to try to have done for the… Continue

Crochet and knitting club!

Posted on September 24, 2010 at 8:00pm 2 Comments

I joined a crochet and knitting club at my local library. I missed the first meeting two weeks ago because I had to work. I put in a schedule change at work for Thursday off so that I could go because I was really looking forward to it and I didn't want to miss anymore gatherings. I work every weekend and only one day a week so I don't think it was a big deal to be off that day. Anyway, I went this Thursday and there was about fifteen ladies knitting and crocheting. Everyone seemed really nice… Continue

My new hooks!

Posted on August 5, 2010 at 8:30pm 2 Comments

I just got some new crochet hooks yesterday! They are made from bamboo and I got them off of ebay for 99 cents plus shipping which was still under seven dollars! I figured I'ld try some bamboo hooks since I really like knitting with my Harmony needles and since there are no Harmony crochet hooks (yet) I got these.

There not as smooth moving through the yarn as my Susan Boye hooks but it's better then plastic hooks. I hate plastic hooks…

Crochet Fish

Posted on July 28, 2010 at 5:09pm 2 Comments

I just finished this fish for my daughter, she's sixteen, so I was surprised she wanted it. It came out pretty good. And it didn't take long to make. I spent Monday evening doing it. I couldn't get the eyes to go right for anything! I did the eyes four times! So I gave up and went to the craft store and bought the wiggly eyes. My youngest son wants one now.…

Entrelac Pouch

Posted on July 14, 2010 at 6:55pm 3 Comments

Today I started a entrelac pouch. First time actually doing this. I had a pattern last year I never did.

I think it's going pretty good! I found a entrelac pattern for a hat that I want to try and I figured I could do this pouch to get pratice. I was knitting all day! I haven't done that in forever. Played with my USM again today. It's going good. I had to start over a few times, but that is okay since I want to get use to it. Happy…

Hi again!  Regarding your problem with finding somewhere to put up your knitting machine:- Do you have an ironing board? If so, you can put it at its lowest height and use it as a knitting machine table and you should be able to easily sit at it. Barbara

Dear Tamara: Thanks for the input. I grip those older aluminum hooks so tight they just kill my arthritic hands. Knit Picks has some bamboo ones like what you mentioned. I think I'll look into them. For now, probably in the G and D size. Ones that I use most frequently.

I will be looking forward to seeing the pics when you get your socks done. It would be great to see what you do with your knitting machine, if you get one. They are fun. When I drag mine out again, I'll have to learn how to use it again. I hope I still have that manual.

Sorry that did not work. Here is a web site that might help.

This is a little difficult to explain. And I am gong to try to attach a file that has pictures that explains it even better than I can.

You will be making a certain number of triangles at the beginning of the scarf. To make these triangles, you will first knit 1, then turn and purl back, and I'm assuming that your next row will be knit 2, then turn and purl back. It sounds a little short sighted, but follow the directions, and I think it will work out. Also hope this uploaded file will work.
