Heh heh - your Happy Hat is going to become part of my sister-in-law's collection in about a month when I finally catch up to all my projects...
let's see...


HFM gloves
Kyoto sweater
2 scarves
mohair Wimple
Booga Bag
1-Ball Kureyon Hat
Jordana Paige Party Apron
Very Tall Socks

*whew*

Not enough hours in the day to work, eat, sleep & knit


Miss Marnie - stay brilliant. We appreciate your designs and the fact that you're so accessible, espicially with Amy's fabulous site :D makes this like the best 1-2 punch in knitting resources these days.

Marnie, your patterns are something else! You sure do have a designer's mind - wish I did! The closest I came was to design a preemie baby's jacket!
I've just downloaded your 'Flamenco Wrap' pattern; it's just gorgeous, and I reckon I'll make two, and make a poncho for myself.
Your other patterns are wonderful too, and have bookmarked your lovely site for 'future reference'. Keep up the lovely designs.

Thank you so much, Lynn.
One suggestion I have for the flamenco wrap is to modify the border so you attach it while you are crocheting it.
Basically, every other row of the border ends with a CH5, DC in next DC. Instead, you can just slip along the edge of the wrap, ch2, and dc in next dc.
This will make more sense when you are actually working the piece
Feel free to contact me if you hit any road blocks along the way.

roxyquiksilver34,
That's great news. I actually think they are fun, but you have to be a certain kind of person to want to wear them (I am that certain kind of person, of course).
Let me know if you have any questions about the pattern.

I don't have much to add, except that I visit Marnie's page fairly often to look at the free patterns, and the Erte Cloche hat pattern, and wonder when I'll be experienced enough to attempt one. I need that Erte hat! It rocks! All of Marnie's patterns are cool and gorgeous.

Just had to add my .02.

Oh wow, some super designs here yup. I have found the exact hat I've been looking to make.... your Halley's Comet Hat. But of course I am immediately stymied, can't understand what 'No Stitch' means.
No Stitch?! I guess I will write you Marnie...

help with pattern of Marnie's?
Hi. I want to make that gorgeous hat, the Comet Hat.
Maybe Marnie's not around lately coz I emailed her and no answer for a couple days now.

This may be really stupid but I just don't get what No Stitch means.
Does that mean a slip stitch? Then why wouldn't it say slip?

If anyone has time to look at the pattern on Marnie's sight and can tell me what that mean I'd appreciate it. It's such a sweet hat for spring.

I LOVE that hat...Marnie's designs are awesome, but I have to say, when I see charts, I run the other way. They just look like a bunch of boxes and symbols to me. I guess I just prefer row-by-row instructions.

I would LOVE to know what "no stitch" means.

Hey all, I've been off planning and then attending a bachalorette party so email hasn't been top on my list of to dos.
No stitch simply means there is, literally, no stitch in that spot. It sounds absurd to do something so silly but it's done so that the stitches in the chart align in a way that makes the pattern more evident. You are seeing a symbol representation of what the pattern will look like. When you see a box marked for "no stitch" simply skip past it and work the next symbol.

Don't be scared of charts, they can actually be much easier than written out patterns. If you take it slowly and work stitch for stitch, you'll find it comes together easily and in time, it will teach you more about how lace and other patterns really work.
