  • catscroal001.htm
    First page of a crochet along for the simple free form necklace. Shortened name. jeanne
  • catsgffthng01.htm
    Added images to show use of plastic bags as yarn. jeanne
  • catsgffheart001.htm
    A sample gallery page to show a free form piece in the shape of an abstract heart that could be a small necklace, a key chain, decoration on a special card, a special book mark, a patch on a sweater, a jacket, or jeans. jeanne
  • catsiteadd.htm
    Records of Cats who Crochet files I've added to or changed. jeanne
  • catsnchain001.jpg
    Full size image so you can see stitches up close. When I use these images on the website, I use smaller images. To see the larger one, if it's on the website, click on the jpg or gif image alone, as it is here. I'll teach you how to do this when we start to meet. jeanne
  • catsnchain005.gif
    Cropped image of the chain and its attachment to the free form piece. The chains are hard to count here because the yarn I used is one that varies from thick to thin. Sorry. I was hunting for a color that matched, and wasn't thinking about your needing to count the chains. jeanne
  • catsnstrpl0001.jpg
    Cats instruction image on the NY Times Sunday plastic cover. Blue
  • catsnstrpl0002.jpg
    Cats instruction image on the LA Times Sunday plastic cover and the Wall Street Journal Sunday plastic cover. Orange. The weekday covers are clear plastic. That could be fun, too, if you used colored yarn with it. jeanne

    Started series of files for instructions for stuff done with plastic bags yarn. Realized ww'd probably have lots of these over time, and e'd want to put up images participants send us. So I added a couple of zeros to the file numbers and changed the images of NY Times, LA Times, and Wall Street Journal plastic covers to fit this newer system. Since we have a website on which to display participants' work, I think we should do so. Local communities can use the praise. These numbers let us go up to 9, 999. I sure hope we don't have any more images than that. jeanne

  • catsnstrpl0003.jpg
    Fabric image of black and white envelope-style purse with shoulder strap. Made of multi-colored plastic and fun yarn in black with white paper-like strips. I think this one is done in crochet. It would have been a mess to ry knitting all those strips and that black fun fur. Whenever you have long pieces like that jutting from the yarn, they get caught up and pulled through the knit stitches. Then you have to work them free, if you'd like them to look like this fabric. This purse has a really neat fabric for lining. I can't find any of my cameras. They're obviously packed away under something, and I don't have time to go looking. When I do, I'll take a photo of the purse so you can see it. You'll have to nag me. There's so much to do with re-rganizing these sites. jeanne
  • catsnstrpl0004.jpg
    Image of inside of purse, with lining. The little bits of color you see is the plastic crochet under all the furry stuff sticking out. You can see why you might want to knit that combination. Crocheting it is easier. (I actually don't have the lining stitched in yet. There really is a lot to do with these websites. By the time I find the cameras, I'll get the lining stitched in. Honest. jeanne
  • cystfib01.htm
    Story of a young woman with cystic fibrosis. Relates to our teaching of empathy, non-bullying, and finding the best in each of us for collaboration. Older participants, interested in gathering more information on what we talk about that really matters will find this file in the Dear Habermas site index, as well as in the cats who crochet site index.

    Maybe someone will have the courage to wear one of these hair thingamajigs. Or maybe someone could wear it to a costume party. I'll bet Reese Witherspoon would. jeanne

  • catsnstr0001brclt.htm
    Starting instruction page; Finished two more bracelets. Have to tack "jewel" onto the first one, and have to put together a large freeform flower. And I have to figure out how to break these into reasonable consistency over sample gallery, over images to inspire gallery, and over instructions section. jeanne
  • catssrcunfiled0001.htm
    Cats sources (at this time mostly for adults, though I hope to do this for kids, too. See catstheory.htm on that.) I'm taking the unfiled source section from former Dear Habermas teaching essays, and checking the URLs to make sure they're still valid. Lot's aren't. And that's one of the biggest weaknesses of the Web, so far. jeanne
  • currentissue.htm
    Discovered today that I use this file both for Cats and for Dear Habermas. That won't do. I'll have to come up with another filename. Probably will be catscurrissue.htm or something like that. jeanne
  • catsnstr00001ffdoily.jpgImage for freeform doily for cats who crochet. Designed to teach there are no "wrong" moves, only different moves. Instruction sheet up soon. jeanne
  • catsnstr00006ffdoily.jpgImage for freeform doily for cats who crochet. Designed to teach that you can stop and change your mind any old place you want to. I stopped with the butterfly and started with the heart. It's called thinking out of the box. jeanne

    Tentative Home page, introducing Damian. File name changed now to catsdefault.htm. That's because I'll have to change it to default.htm for earthlink to accept it as home page. Duh! jeanne
  • catsdefault.htm
    Gave Damian his new homepage. For now, this is where Cats who Crochet will have it's home, from within Dear Habermas, because they're closely related. jeanne

    Notes for theoretical papers on Cats who Crochet community development. We've received an "invitation to submit," which would help take the community development project right across the country. These notes will be for those of us who are interested in establishing cats who crochet kinds of groups (kinds meaning not all cats will crochet; some will knit, make things out of cardboard or paper, make things with hardware, use soldering irons, whatever their skills and interests represent. jeanne

    • catsmpgal00001.jpg
      Sample freeform doily or coaster or patch, created with all single crochet and slip stitch. Notice that the circle is not completely round. That's freeform. You can correct such oddities or simply include them as part of your abstract composition. jeanne
    • catsmpgal00002.gif
      Notice that the circle oddity is now drawn in. You could us a different color and make the circle rounder. Or you could use the same colors, as I did. Or you could choose not to make it rounder. That's freeform. jeanne
    • catsiteadd.htm
      Updated.
    • jsmpgal001.htm
      Samples I've made for freeform crochet and knitting. Most have no specific pattern. Even I can't reproduce them exactly, because if something didn't turn out as I wanted, I just responded to the piece and went with what it wanted to turn out like. Maked knitting and crocheting, and embroidery and quilting, and journaling and drawing lots more fun because you don't have to worry about making mistakes. There are no mistakes. Just different "recuerdos" (memories).

      Button isn't attached to either bracelet or pop top in this image either. More images and instructions later. jeanne
    • catsiteadd.htm
      Changed the title to "catsiteadd.htm" with cats in front because then all the files will fall together when you're looking for them. This is the kind of thing that's going to take some work on consistency. Cats usually stands for the site, determining file placement in our index. Second piece eliminates an "s" if it would be a repeat - thus, catsite, and not catssite. gal stands for gallery, im for image, indxaj and indxkz for the two indexfiles, str dl or sd for string doll, followed by the number of the file, pattern, image, whatever. I use the 000x because that let's us go up to 9,999 of whatever. We learned with Dear Habermas, that, especially when we use a forum for sharing, we really do go that hight. Updated.
    • catstrdl0002.gif

      Rose-colored string doll in Knit Picks cotton with a pop top for head with mixed length curls or dreadlocks, as you wish, a pop top for torso, and one piece arms and two legs. I didn't mean to leave the hair rose-colored; I just forget between crocheting these things and then writing up the manual to go with them.
    • catsstrdl0003bdyprts.jpgI'm trying to build a consistent system for file naming. Unfortunately at this stage of developing the site, I'm gonna be inconsistent sometimes. Sometimes I just wanna show the parts. And sometimes I just wanna show you the doll. And then, where to I put the instructions for making them? jeanne
    • catsindxaj.htm Started building the index for the cats who crochet site. This is gonna take a little while because I need to include parts of the Dear Habermas index which pertain to cats who crochet. This is one enormous job!
