It kinda drives me a little bit crazy that people get caught up in using the colors shown in the photos that accompany a pattern.So I've coded a widget (of sorts) that will help people test out other colors with a stitch pattern. The user can't customize the stitch pattern - only the colors - and I would like to include it as a part of the patterns that get published in Tension Magazine.It's not formatted in its current state, as I will be including it within patterns and using the formatting associated with that issue of the magazine, but here it is in its raw form:http://www.iamintheloop.com/tensionmagazine/colorTest.phpIf y'all would play with it just a little bit and let me know if it bonks out on you, that would be awesome. Thanks.
On January 6, I replied to this post by 4tsandgrowing. When solving her mom's problem proved to be a little more complicated than I expected, I offered to put up pictures in a separate post. So... I got out the digital camera and took a few pictures, but before I could upload them to my computer, I misplaced the camera and the test motif... in different places. Well, I just found the camera a couple of days ago, and dug out the test motif yesterday. So, here we are, a couple of months later, but I've got the pictures to post. Of course, Cari's mom might have figured it out herself by now. ( Pics behind cutCollapse )EDIT: Pictures resized for ease of viewing. I do apologize to the community. I'd had the pictures at reasonable sizes in my offline editor when I wrote the post; I swear. *sigh* Not only is preview your friend, so is double checking when you post.

Okay, I have been hit with the sudden urge to do a Soft Waves Ripple scarf. Actually, it may just turn out to be a blanket. I'm pretty new to crochet, though, so I have a silly question: what's the best way to change colours at the end of every row? The pattern ends in 2 dc into last ch.I read:To Change Color in Dc: Yarn over and draw up a loop in the last st of the row, yarn over and draw through 2 lps, drop the color in use; with next color to be used, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook. Continue with new color....does this mean I basically do half of the double crochet, then complete the last YO and pull through 2 loops with the new colour? Maybe my stitches are too loose or something, but I tried this and I still see a bit of the original colour pulling into the second row.Any suggestions? How do you do your changes?Thanks so much in advance!
I finished this one last night (started it Friday Night) I have one more (at least ) to make before Christmas.( close upCollapse )
I am asking a question for my mom. She has been working on this pattern:http://www.craftown.com/cropat9.htmShe got up to round seven and can't figure out how to do it. What is the corner? Round seven and on it confusing and neither her nor I can figure it out!Can someone please help? Any diagram or anything would help!THANK YOU
I was burning off yarn this week, making a hat and scarf, and I finished it tonight. Lucky for me, really, because it's now officially cold and windy outside.( hat and scarf under the cutCollapse )
( Woo-hoo! Sweater time!Collapse )It's eighty degrees here today, so it's not actually sweater time just yet, but when it does get here, I am so ready! Please note that what looks like bunching on the sleeves is actually twisting that I did not spot until about twenty seconds ago when I pulled up the picture on photobucket. The sweater fits well overall. It could use an extra inch around the bust, but it's not so constricting that I fear yanking it apart to get it on and off. The sleeves look very good, and I like the length. My next big project is going to be a high-waisted pencil skirt, and I think they'll go together quite nicely.I used Moda Dea Cheerio, an H-hook, copious amounts of single crochet, and double crochet for the shells. It's a very warm sweater, and I can't wait to take it out on the town.
