  1. I had a friend ask me to make 3 blankets for some babies. The first was green and cream. the second was to try a lumber jack plaid. The third will be squares of c2c with animal faces, one per square. All these will be sufari animals. Here are the first two I made.

  3. Did anyone see the America Strong piece on ABC World News last night? One woman went online looking for an appointment for a shot which she needed to get before she could have her needed heart surgery. Another woman (who also needed a shot due to compromised immune system) gave the heart surgery woman her appointment because she felt that woman needed it more. They went down together and explained the reason for the swap at the vaccination site and it was allowed.

  10. Another note on the good news front we've been waiting since before Thanksgiving to get a tree removed from our backyard off our fence. It's been cancelled twice due to snow which of course creates more tree damage that is more severe than ours dropping us further down the list. This morning DH is working from home looks out the window and says, "There are 2 strangers in our backyard." Normally this would be a bad thing but it was the tree people and we are finally free of our November storm damage. It was worth the waiting for them they did an excellent job.

  12. We too often forget to look for the good in people and it doesn't make it into the news very often. Thanks for sharing your experience. Being kind really doesn't take much effort and I think it can inspire others to be kind in return. We could sure use a snowball effect in that regard. LOL

  13. There is much that is dark in the world to share but I also think it is important to recognize the real good in people. I broke my nose piece on my glasses today which while not a huge issue is a challenge because my back up glasses are a few generations from my current prescription and in order for these glasses to work properly with the multiple levels they do have to sit correctly or you get blurred vision and headaches. DH called the eye place to find out what the COVID regulations were for going in to get them replaced thinking we might be able to get in tomorrow as they were ab

  15. Good Morning! Apparently Build A Bear store has Dr. Who bears! My husband is a big whovian from way back in the day so I think I need to make some Dr. Who bears for him. I have a simple bear pattern I can accessorize for different characters. Hooray another project to do while staying safe at home!

  16. It's now called Crochet by Carole, and I'm not sure if they are still selling but here's the web site. https://www.angelfire.com/art/crochetbycarole/crochet.html I bought patterns from them way back when (probably 30-40 years ago), so the designer may not even be alive anymore. But it's worth a try, and there's a chance that her children are still selling. BTW, I remember the smurf pattern and the armadillo-holding-a beer/coke-bottle patterns. There were a lot of good character dolls, plus the Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls.

  23. Goodness, you all sound like me.....chuckling. I used to have several totes of partially spent skeins, small leftovers and unneeded colors. I hated seeing all that yarn just sitting there but I knew I wouldn't get it used up in my lifetime so last year I began putting any reasonable sized leftover skeins into a 2 gallon ziplock. I keep it by my projects chair so I don't forget. Then once the bag is filled I drop it off at either my local charity/thrift store, the City's craft department or the senior center. The city has a "yarn bomb" event every spring and they give away the yarn to part

  33. I sure don't miss dragging home heavy things like cat food and cat litter. I'll continue to order that and a number of other things as long as I have free shipping. I agree about wanting to try on clothes or even just see them in person before deciding. Also produce is another thing I want to see before I buy.

  34. Hi everyone! I'm Amanda, when I'm online I generally go by sinema (like 'cinema'), or sin for short. Found this group on Ravelry recently and decided that today would be the day I jump in and finally start trying to participate in a crochet community. Crocheting has been an on-and-off hobby since I was a kid, alongside writing, gaming, film, and technology like computers and cameras. At this point, my main hobby is collecting hobbies. I have three guinea pigs, two of which you can see in the profile photo -- Spooky (left, black and orange) and Rumor (right, white w/ red eyes). I have a thi

  38. Back in the '80s a co-worker had a side business selling makeup and 'doing your colors' which was a 'thing' back then. I'm a Summer (blue overtones, more on the pastel side of colors) so yeah, oranges and yellows aren't my thing either.

  43. The snow looked like feathers and was just as light when it fell yesterday! Lots easier to trudge through. Lucy for her play bow and manic look on her face when I went out with her. We dodged a bullet...but today is bitter cold. It IS winter after all. Here's a Christmas card picture for you ladies. And in the second one look for my girl, just curled up and enjoying the day😄

  45. I was asked to make scarves for my 3 nieces and when I was choosing colors, OF COURSE my daughter chose for hers 🙂 because she wants one, too. I started working on the first scarf. I'm glad they are smaller than the adult ones. But while I was working on the scarf, I found a pattern for gingerbread dolls and I just HAD TO "bake" some gingerbread for Christmas 2021 The pattern is free (knitting) https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mini-gingerbread-friends

  46. For Ami's, I prefer Red Heart Super Saver and a H/8 hook (or even smaller sometimes) to get that tight tension. Another choice for Ami's I like is 100% cotton and a G/6 hook. For afghans, scarves, gloves, etc. I prefer Vanna's Choice and other 4 weight Lion Brand yarns, depends on the actual type of project . For some scarves and hats I'll use 3 weight yarn for a light weight fell and different drape.
