  1. Hi everyone My name is Ai from Da Nang, Vietnam. Same to you, I am also a crochet lover. By chance, I thought about key words “crochet forum” and luckily I found you guys. Crocheting has come to me while I was unemployed, I am crazy about spending times crocheting. I love making animals and dolls. Recently I am thinking about running small crocheting business as my dream job. So I join our forum that hope to make friends, share and collect experience for our journeys. Nice to talk you 💕

  2. This afghan was made for my friend's mother to keep her warm since she was going through dialysis and was always cold as a result. She loved it! It's not perfect since it was my first ever but I am still proud of myself since I powered through my severe depression to finish it. It proves to me that I can accomplish good things and make others smile 😊

  3. I know it is not crochet. But, I thought I should share that with you. Here is my idea what to do with ALL those hospital socks......??? and all those single one that do not have a pair any longer ..LOL. . In the past couple years my daughter manage to accumulate few pairs of those hospital socks and she did not knew what to do with that??. She was ready to trow them out. I got a idea to make toys out of that for her 4 pets (2 dogs & 2 cats). On that picture not only hospital socks. I used 1 tube sock & 1 small fuzzy sock. Those two red color socks were from hospital. I turn

  4. The photo is awful but, it's the only one I had time to take. Sorry. Crocheted in Moss stitch for the center with a type of block stitch for the border. No pattern, just winged it. Folded in half. Premier-Serenity-White yarn with Premier-Puzzle-Riddle for the border and a J/ hook. approximately 60"x60". I did enjoy working with this yarn as it's very soft and plush. It's currently on it's way for my DD to Calif with my GD.

  9. Welcome to the 'ville! And, Oh dear, this line is ah...interesting. First, I think the weirdest looking thing, the last word 'extreme' means 'end' (like the far extremity of the row). Second: since you are new to written patterns, always read the whole pattern through before picking up your hook, especially the abbreviations or special stitches section. “1. 5 ch, start to knit in the second loop from the hook, inc, 2sc, 3sc to the extreme ch, 3sc (10)” I'm also going to paste the definition of inc from the pattern: "..inc: make increase into same stitch as many as the number w

  11. I am from a tiny, little town where tall wheat grows. I have crocheted for many years, and rarely find a pattern I cannot do. But, I am terrible with colors and can't design. I love to crochet and look forward to getting to know some new friends!

  12. Hello. I'm J. I'm 31, getting close to 32. I'm male, married, and my husband and I have five cats. I learned how to crochet when I was six, but I am by no means an expert, nor would I really call myself advanced. I'm not very good at following patterns, but it's something I really want to get better at. I tend to just wing it. I prefer to work with larger hook sizes, usually 9mm and 10mm, but recently discovered the joy of working with an 8mm. I make scarves and blankets of various sizes. Oh, and cat toys. I make a fair amount of cat toys. I'm a hook collector.

  13. It went from 100 down to 50. I figured by that time you would be established in the forum. Ok the Granny Squares thread is a place to chat. We don't really make them anymore, or I have not seen a request for them in a long time. We come in there and just chat about our day or what is going on in our lives. Come on in and join and see what fun you can have.

  14. Welcome to the 'ville! It is not unusual to have multiple skeins or bobbins hanging off your piece when you are changing colors-- I just see as I typed that NCcountrygal has said the same thing. There is no added 'bulk' in the fabric if that is what you mean, but it's a little more unwieldy to handle with all that stuff hanging from your work - the trade off is that there is LESS cutting and weaving in, and the cutting/weaving does add a little bulk. Edited to add a photo to illustrate bobbins, the red was in narrow widely spaced lines above the brim of the hat so I had a bunch of red bo

  15. Still on a cross stitch kick. I couldnt bring my large project to Orlando so I started a smaller , more portable , project. Hamtaro is a childhood favorite of my kids. So I made this for my younger son. I put it on a box from Hobby Lobby that I spray painted black to try and make something that might be useful in a 23 year old's apartment.

  17. Hi everyone, My name is Mahoor and I am currently living in Vancouver Canada. I love crochet. I started crocheting since I was 10. I have tried almost every technique in crochet but I love mosaic crochet more than any technique. It is so fascinating and versatile technique and believe me so addictive. I am a new designer and I have published my first mosaic crochet pattern on Ravelry website in June 2021. Thank you. Nice to meet you all.

  22. Tampa doll, yes. I have a wig that will be delivered friday (love Amazon!) and the boots and tights are in my bedroom closet. I havent used my sewing machine in so long I have forgotten how to thread it and wind the bobbins so the whole costume was hand sewn. One day soon i will get the machine out and spend a day relearning.

  26. "Through front loop only, *Sc 1, hdc 1, sc 1 in one st, sc 1 in next st* 21 times. ( 84 sts)" That whole part underlined uses 2 stitches from the prior row, but creates 4 stitches, because you are putting 3 stitches into the first stitch, and 1 in the second. So, that would double your stitch count. I've been crocheting for decades, and still occasionally miss a word and wonder what happened and have to rip and re-do, so don't feel bad.

  27. Just a reminder if you like including crayons, markers, colored pencils, pens, etc in Christmas packages or donations the back to school sales are starting now and this is the best time of year to buy the stuff to put away for Christmas presents or donations. You can get the brand names cheaper now than you can get the generic stuff at Christmas.

That icing... to die for...I'll be laying there with the spatula in my hand and chocolate on my lips...😬 Waiting to see what Miss Elsa is going to do here, looks like we are right in the path, but so far 1-3 inches of rain and 40 mile and hour gusts. I am determined to crochet freeze pop holders for the grands tomorrow, seems like a great cotton buster and mindless project .. Hoping that 250 year old oak tree stands its ground one more time...

  30. Lea: That is indeed the cake you described, minus the nuts. I've included the link for the recipe I use now. I lost my GM's recipe from when I was a kid and this one is pretty close. My dad didn't like nuts, so, being he was from Oklahoma, it became a Oklahoma Chocolate Sheet Cake. Funny part was my grandad was from Texas, so, they'd make a big deal out of the name, teasing each other. (BTW: I practically lick the pan clean after frosting the cake-LOL) Beware though, there's a total of 3 sticks of butter between the cake and the frosting!

  32. Happy 4th of July! My granddaughter and I will be heading to my house today. I plan to cook hotdogs and hamburgers for us and my parents. I bought salads and baked beans from the supermarket deli yesterday. Maybe see what fireworks we can see from the house when it gets dark, we are such party people . Still watching the storm but as of right now we are out its projected path. I'm hoping it continues to weaken and not cause a lot of damage. Prayers for safety for everyone in it's path. I hope you all have a wonderful and safe day!

  40. I cannot agree more. I am not making money out of selling patterns for myself as all the money goes to charity or helping to inspire women in Iran and helping them learn a new skill and become financially independent. That's why every cent counts when converted into Iranian currency. I am always in debt to the nation I came from and I know they are in such a big financial, social, political and environmental troubles. I am trying to do my part I guess. But yes. 20 copies is wonderful and I truly appreciate those who have trusted me and paid for my pattern even though I am an unknown designer.

  45. Mary Jo: Thank you for showing the photos to remind us how festive your house has always been. I'm sorry you couldn't keep it up this year and do hope you have set a few little things out by your crochet chair for cheering you up. DD brought me some red, white and blue flowers yesterday. They're so cheerful. Not much on the weather side. Some high cloud cover and 94° today, but supposed to be 105° by Tuesday. 🥵 It never used to get this hot here before. The weather everywhere has changed dramatically. I hope everyone enjoys the 4th of July and stays safe!
