    I have really been enjoying the Christmas cards you have been sending to me. Krys and Katie your cards came today. Mary Jo, Mona and Lyn yours came Thurs. Cards from Chris and Debbie came earlier. Lyn how frustrating. Hope things are better now. Mary Jo that card made me laugh too and any time I see an angel on top of the tree I giggle.

    Nothing done today but sleep - I've been tired lately. I'm at work again tonight. I have most of the christmas shopping done which I am very thankful for. I want to get a few more stocking stuffers but other than that we are done! Have a good night all!

    Finally found time to stop in. Went for my yearly Mamo this morning at 7:30. Then went to the grocery store for a few things. NOT A SOUL on the roads. Don't know where they were at, but I am glad they stayed in till I got home. Hey Brenda, I can't forget the tree up the butt. Thanks for the laugh and the bells. Katy thank you for the card it was so cute. I love penguins. Lyn, I hope things are better for you all and Jimmy. I love it when they tell you one time and you sit for hours waiting for them. Off to finish watching the football games. Yeah, Pro football is on. Have a good night.

    Today the mail was full. I got a card and stocking for my tree from a FGM in WA. A nice card from a FGM in NE. Last but not least, a very funny card and some crocheted bells for my tree from a FGM in MO. All the FGM's have been busy.

    I love the gnomes and the dream catchers are just so pretty. What can I say about the angels, except beautiful. I am sure they sold well.

    What do these terms mean in Danish crochet?

    No clue, but found this in case it helps you https://oombawkadesigncrochet.com/2014/04/u-s-crochet-terms-and-danish-crochet-terms.html I only VERY quickly scanned the above, but happened to catch the word 'maske' as meaning stitch, but it also occurs in part of longer words. Spr might be 'spring', which is 'skip' in English (I rather like 'spring over' better than skip!). If you can find the original Danish bit that translated into 'mask' and 'spr', the associated words might help clear it up. Also, if your pattern has a photo of the finished object, taking a close look at the row being described might help--I know it does for me when a pattern instruction in English is confusing. Fingers crossed, good luck!
  21. I actually did; you're right (obviously)! I ended up walking away from the pattern for about three weeks until I had the time and energy to mess around with it more, and the moment I picked it back up again it clicked. One glove is down, and I'm halfway through the second! Thank you!

    How do you sit?

    It mostly depends on where I am, as I move around a lot, and crochet any time I am able to! Mostly, my work is in front of me, sometimes on my lap, if no table is in front of me. If there's a table, and my work is getting large, I put it on the table. When I'm in the car, I try to work on smaller projects, as I'm always afraid the floor might get my project dirty if it drags onto the floor. My yarn is almost always on my left side, because I'm right-handed. Jayashiangel is correct--your neck hurts due to muscle tension while crocheting. Roll your head around when it starts getting tired, and stretch your arms out. And mostly--take a nice big breath, and relax, and enjoy crocheting! Good luck!!
  28. Anyone know Danish and can explain a few terms? I’ve google translated a Danish crochet pattern. It seems a few words/terms haven’t translated. What’s the US equivalent of spr.? What does it mean to reverse mask? Pattern says for reference, 2 different parts of the pattern: 1 ch (reverse mask), 15 sc, 1 ch. (15) Turn and spr. 1 sc, 12 sc, spr. 1 dc, 1 dc, 1 dc. (13) Turn Thank you!
