  6. You could tell my Mom was reaching her stress level with 8 kids when she'd start singing "I talk to the walls but they don't listen to me." Years later I realized my Mom wasn't worried about people listening in on her conversations she'd only have been ticked off they weren't bothering to provide her with adult conversation in return.

  7. I dug out and finished a WIP (2nd doily- same pattern) from a few years ago. Same threads and colors as the first, but about 2" smaller.

  9. Yep, those are knitted without a doubt. I knit, and have added crochet to knitted item a few times; below is an example where I edged a knit cardigan all the way around - below is a scan of the front opening and bottom edge of the cardigan, you can see the stockinette knit of the body and the crochet linen stitch / woven stitch / other names I'm not remembering for the 1.5" edge. I chose it because I thought it blended in pretty well (and I was lazy, and I knew it would be a bit sturdier than knit). I'm not sure if it wouldn't look odd to add something to what it already a knit ribbed e

  11. That's really adorable! Super cute! Our son loved dinosaurs when he was a little boy...he would have loved something like this. Saving the pattern. Just in case .... Most of our small christening blanket group were able to meet at the church a couple of days ago...fist time in probably a year! The lady who started the group is so encouraging..and she also passed along a skien of Caron Pounder white yarn as further encouragement...LOL!

  15. I have 7 children, 4 of whom are girls. Two girls are 21 and 18, and the other two are 4 and 2. I had made cupcake purses years ago for my older 2. My 21 year old had kept hers and given it to our 4 year old. It remains consistently popular with my 4 year old for the last year or so, and the 2 year old desperately wants it. So...I told my 4 year old I was going to make her little sister one so she wouldn't keep wanting hers all the time. the 4 year old gets suuuper offended and says, no mom! You can make ME a new one and she can have the old one. So we go to the store and she picks out

  16. Sandra hope you and hubby had a nice day. Chris after finally getting a fleece scarf never going back to crocheted or knit ones. You thoughts were spot on with my thoughts on the crocheted gifts. Mona sounds like you had a super productive day. I bought a slim tree years ago and love it. Its tall yet takes up a lot less floor space.

  19. Study the chart listing the various stitches like Using sc the ch 1 turning stitch does not count as a stitch Using dc the ch 3 pretty much always counts as a stitch There are always exceptions to the rules and the pattern should tell you

  20. Dark is harder for me. I have to use my readers working on it at night. You might find this helpful. I am also not good at large afghans. I am better with doll blankets, lapghans, shawls, scarves or smaller afghans (40x60 inches) granny square join as you go. When working with fuzzy yarn I use at least a K hook double crochet and after first row I work between the stitches. And I only do scarves with it working widthwise so not many stitches to keep track of. I have better luck using it to make scarves on my knifty knitter long loom.

  21. I feel like I should be dancing a jig in celebration because the last doll carrier is done for the donation!!!! I love donating them because I think they are a great accessory the kids can carry the doll and its a great way to store it when the doll isn't being played with but hard on the hands. 16 Inch Doll Pink Doll Carrier

  24. I'm feeling much better, just like a little cold. Sat. I asked for sick pay. It wasn't busy and I was only on a 5 hr. shift, so the store manager said take the day off. I did some shopping, needed more tissues, OJ, TP, etc. I wore a mask and tried to social distance (hard to do in a market). I'm back to work now and everything is feeling normal. This weekend I 4 rows of squares together and made some more pumpkin, spider and ghost pins. I used 2 small balls and rolled 1 skein down (+ 3). Getting closer to 100 for the year.

  25. I've always been grateful for Darski's free patterns but this year as I've dug into more of them her sets have just blown me away. I made another outfit from the Sweetly pattern and it just strikes me how many outfits you can make with just one of her free sets. Her generosity is amazing. Lots to Love 10" Sweetly Dress

  26. I agree with Bgs, it's just varying lengths of chain loops. I'm fairly sure, looking at the enlarged photo on the right, that the mid-section is made starting at the under-bra and working down from there.

  28. If you need more pattern testing work beyond Crochetville, check our Ravelry. There is at least one testing group for crochet. I love picture afghans. I've never attempted one with the stitch you've used.

  31. The two fatter pieces look like crochet, but that's just a guess. There is nylon 'yarn' but I cannot see a way (looking at pics) to repair given how nylon works. This website sells a lot of Omega nylon. They also have photos of projects buyers have sent in. https://creativeyarnsource.com/product-category/nylon/

  32. I like a challenge like crocheting picots with the black Gütermann C Ne 50 sewing thread. This pattern (called "pink whirlpool centrepiece") has 53 rounds and each doily measures 21 cm (8,2 inch) in diameters.

  33. Today was wonderful here, low 80s.. which for us is great for Oct 1 st.. Finally got to do a bit of crochet, working on an Anne of Green Gables doll for my friend for Christmas.... went shopping today, I really hate going to Walmart, I had to pick up a prescription or I would have done a pick up order.. The fella who usually does my pick up order was shopping and he said how surprised he was to see me in the store... 😂 Reni, if I lived near you I would come keep you company for sure...I get lonesome out here in the middle of no where..

  35. Hello! Just hanging out here for a short bit. I stayed up too late again reading last night. It's a good book though. Sometimes I just can't put them down. Today is DD's birthday. They had a ball at Nascar yesterday. I think she's hooked. LOL They were 2 rows up from the track and she sent me a few videos with sound. The noise from the engines is not given justice on TV. Wow is it ever noisy! Good thing they wore earplugs. I'm heading into the kitchen now to make DD a a German's Chocolate Cake for her birthday, her favorite and mine too. Hope everyone is having a cheerful day.

  36. Here is a moon, it wouldn't be hard to leave off the 'nose' but it's cute with the face. Here is a link with a bunch of stars in different sizes; some may be hosted by Ravelry and I think you have to join to get the pattern, others are links to blogs with free patterns.

  37. Yes I believe that is what its telling you to do. Just remember to orient yourself. Its the back loops as if you were continuing to work in the round so when you mash it flat the back loops on the back piece is actually facing you. This will leave the front loops available for you to work the remaining part in the round.

  40. I usually do a small swatch to test out how blends will block. Then wash again and see what happened to the blocking/shape. Sometimes a wet and stretch will work. Sometimes a stretch (dry fabric) and hover steam will work. Steam blocking with a block cloth will likely kill the acrylic permanently, but may only block the wool until the next wash. So you risk a wonkier shape. Cottons rarely block permanently and are somewhat difficult to stretch into a shape. BLOCKING WIRES: if you have a real hardware store near you, you might find a display of piano wires. These

  43. Patterns are notoriously incorrect. Always read the entire pattern through before starting. That will help you to figure it out. I agree with Moz. Some of the patterns I come across seem odd and perhaps they are translated from another language to English. I find that a lot......Good luck!

  47. The instructions seem to be counting the slip stitch as a stitch, so Ch 92, slip stitch = 93 Then you Ch 1 (which you don't count), SC in each chain, and then slip stich again at the end = 94. It is an odd way, but so long as they provide a stitch count at the end, it should all work out. ~Moz
