  1. Past hour
  2. Good morning! hope all is doing well. We've been so busy this past weekend. Monday was a crash day.
  3. Good Morning everyone. Boy can I relate to migraines. I use to have to go into a dark room with a cold compress on my head and plenty of quite for at least an hour, if I caught them early. I don't get them anymore, but I come close at times. Not much going on. The trees are cut, the tile is down and the only thing left is the TV being replaced. That will be tomorrow. I am almost done with my afghan. Soon I will be doing the edging. I will take a picture when it is done. Have a great day everyone.

  7. Hi, so I have done a pineapple granny square. Quite new to crochet and it’s meant to be a 3d square… So the last bit I have to do is some edging on the pineapple. The pattern says round 8: join colour in any front loop stitch. Ch (sc, ch) in each stitch of this round. So….. My question is…. I have joined my yarn in one of the stitches. Do I chain 1 in that front loop and move onto the next front loop and everyone thereafter doing sc, ch1? Is it actually asking me to chain 1 at all or have I misunderstood? Thanks

  9. You're welcome! I just noticed I overlooked your question about counting the stitches in the corners of the granny squares. Since corners are often an odd # of stitches, there's a 'middle' stitch - if you assign the middle stitch to the side seam, not the hem, the edge will turn slightly toward your body, which is preferable to slightly flipping away.
  10. Thank you very much! this is my first time making a sweater I have not made a ribbed cuff before so thank you for all the tips!! I was mainly looking for how to combine stitches but you helped thank you!!
  11. Hello Everyone, My name is Jennifer. I am looking forward to jumping into this forum and conversing with like-minded individuals. I have been crocheting since I was about 12 years old but I feel I learn something new on a regular basis.

  13. So, I am making a baby shirt and trying to get started on the sleeves. I joined the yarn under the armpit and Row 1 says ch1 hdc in same st, hdc in next at, make a hdc along the side bar of the hdc... I have never heard of anything other than the side bar stitch but I’m not sure that’s what they’re talking about? The pattern is worded pretty odd in some places and it mentions side bar of the hdc a couple times but with no explanation.. Anyone have any opinions??
  14. Welcome to the 'ville! Could you post a photo of what you have so far? Are the stitch counts what they are supposed to be? Are you using the so-called c2c stitch? (corner to corner construction can be almost any stitch)
  15. This is the last of the Halloween houses for this year. There were a couple of fairy houses that looked like they'd be easy to convert but looking at the calendar I need to finish the villagers and the Oct bday so they both can go out. The fairy houses may appear at Easter or perhaps next year at Halloween. We shall see how this village goes over. Candy Corn House
  16. Oh! I can relate to that boss of yours! The day my father-in-law was buried, my boss called and had the nerve to ask me to come in to work!!! In fact, it "got my goat" so much that I called in the following day and told him I couldn't come back until the next week--(that was on a Friday).!!! Needless to say, I began the task of finding a better place to work immediately after that!!! And found one!!!
  17. Hi, welcome to the 'ville! Normally the way you'd make a ribbed cuff sleeve is start with the cuff, and work the sleeve up from the cuff, which gives you a nice eased transition from cuff to sleeve so you can get your hand comfortably thru the transition point. If you have already made the sweater, I'd add a couple of rounds drastically reducing the opening (like, sc-2-together, sc in the next 2 stitches, repeat -- this will turn 4 stitches into 3, so will reduce the opening by 1/4th; maybe repeat that once and see how it goes, or change the # of plain stitches between the increases if you'd rather. Make sure you have room to put your hand thru with room to spare, the cuff will draw it in some and you don't want it tight there. Have you made a ribbed cuff before? It's easy, make a chain the length you want the cuff to be, turn, SC in the back loop only across - repeat until you have a rectangle you can wrap it around your wrist comfortably, and sew the short ends together, then sew the cuff to the sleeve--don't pull your stitches super tight attaching to the sweater, make sure the seam stretches with the stitches.
  18. good morning everyone,out the door for 1st. appt. of the week,will check back later
  19. Why is my corner to corner coming out uneven? It starts on the decrease. My projects are looking like a parallelogram instead of a square or rectangle. Help!!
  20. We had a busy weekend with family & I forgot to post. I was on track to break even this week until our grandson came for a visit bearing an early birthday gift for Nana. I'll take a hit any day when he picks out yarn for me! 💕WTD -8
  21. Hi there everyone. I'm new here but I'm hoping you can help me out! I have a wide sleeve that I love but I want to do a cinched cuff sleeve and am not sure if ribbing is the way to go and if that will cinch it. the sleeve on this sweater is essentially what I have right now but I wanted to make it cuff to my wrist. Any ideas would be much appreciated! my sleeve is 63 stitches wide ( I think, I'm not sure if I'm supposed to count the corners) another way I will say it is it is a granny square sleeve with 3 granny squares to make a circle and each square has 5 shells each with 3 dc
  22. And this is the hat I made instead on Thursday night...you're going to see a bit more of this by tomorrow...
  23. Last week
  24. We had a nice visit yesterday with both sons and families. Kind of felt like I had been run over by a truck when everyone left. LOL Four kids 7 and under are just going to be active. I had the grands for a couple of hours this afternoon, too. But got some crocheting time in beforehand and while they were here. We're enjoying some cooler nights this weekend. So nice to be able to open doors and windows in the mornings at least. Possible rain later this week with Beta coming thru. DH has city court tomorrow morning, Orth apt Tuesday and wound clinic Friday, so another busy week. I need to mow the yard tomorrow before any rain comes in. Hope everyone has a good week!
  25. I had the grands for a couple of hours this afternoon. Before they got here and a little while they were here, I worked on a scarf and finished a skein...+2.
