    I made this water bottle holder for my friend's 6yo because we were going to an amusement park on a hot day and needed to stay hydrated! It's not in the pictures but later I added a pink I-cord strap that went through the ears so the tension would keep them perked up and "pointy". Really happy with how clean the stripes came out. (The green one is mine. Needless to say I'm pretty jealous.)

    My new Double-Filet crochet wall hanging, I'm pretty addicted to this technique. This is my own design. It was so fun to watch it come together!

    It's done! 24" from peak to peak and 20" from valley to valley. I checked the Charity Drive and round blankets are usually 24-26". Thank you so much for your help - I still had to mess with the beginnings of Row 2 and 3 (replaced shell with 5dc, but that meant I had to ch3 and do 4dc in the same st so the 5dc cluster would match the rest). After Row 3, it was smooth sailing. Quick question - if I did this all in white, would it be okay for a bereavement afghan? Or should I stick with rectangular white afghans?

    Thank you so much Donna for rejuvenating Crochetville. Us old timers just love Crochetville and have been trying to keep it alive. We do so need more activity, participation, and members here to keep it going. I am very inspired to read that you too want to improve and keep Crochetville a vital site. Thanks again for all you have done for Crochetville.

    I did want to let y'all know what I have been up to. It took me 3 months to make the 2 stroller blankies and one dress (I had the first one made ages ago.) I am trying to decide if I should just donate all my yarn (and get about a million points in stashbusting) or if I should keep some in case I can crochet again. (In the old days, it would have taken me 3 days and not 3 months to do this bit 😢

    Finished this a couple weeks ago but just getting around to posting it. It was four rounds before I realized I wasn't doing the back post trebles and rather than frog all that hard work, I incorporated it into the finished product. It's just a design variation I keep telling myself. lol Here it is covering my queen-sized bed with generous overlap all around (but not bedspread length). I'm glad I stuck with it. However, I am on to more soothing colors of a shawl.

    Bzybee on Ravelry My favorite color is blue. I seem to be drawn to pumpkins, snowpeople, bees, gnomes, cardinals, and hummingbirds 1. Mail me a card, any type (holiday, birthday is June 3, postcard from your travels or from where you live). Its even better if you add a note. I cant begin to tell you how much they brighten my day. 2. Garden flags (12 x 18 inches) any holiday, any season, pretty much anything. I have two poles and they are changed out each month. 3. Small things to sit on window ledges, shelves, hang from window latches, door knobs, or curtain rods. I change them out for seasons and holidays. 4. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/christmas-bunting---granny-style 5. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/american-girl-18-inch-doll-wrap-style-dress 6. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/doll-clothes-wedding-dress 7. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/garden-fairy-flower-pot-doll 8. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dandelion-lane 9. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/jurassic-playset 10. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/priscilla-the-ballerina-piggy

    I got the ends taken care of today, so it's all done. I really like this pattern. It has nice stitch variety without feeling busy or that you're doing different stitches just for the sake of different stitches. The yarn is bernat pop foggy notion. https://www.yarnspirations.com/stitch-along/crochet-along-study-of-planet-earth

    This tablecloth will be for my 32 year old Granddaughter. Four years ago she was diagnoses with breast Cancer and underwent rounds of chemotherapy followed by double mastectomy. In November 2018 she underwent reconstructive surgery. The mastectomy meant that three of her lymph nodes had to be removed as well leaving her with a compromised immune system and is now prone to infections. Preop testing also showed that she had a small brain tumor which was successfully removed. now recovering from this ordeal, she just moved into her own apartment and she has an oval kitchen table. Knowing that I crochet, she asked me if I could make her a tablecloth. This is a huge project that I willingly undertook and the chart pattern is one that I found online. The actual colour is a dusty rose which is her favourite colour. much more to do on it yet but I hope to have it finished for her as a Christmas gift.

    Katy I had to fight to stay awake for the game. Needless to say I zonked out as soon as it was over. Being out in the heat wore me out more than the work. I was stiff and sore that night but was ok by morning. Today we hauled the bird bath to my nieces house and set it up, dropped our excess cucumbers off at my sisters, stopped for lunch, then Aldi, and home to put away groceries. Birdbath looks good in its new home and I will get to visit it. I guess I have had it for 30 years. She didnt want my gnome that went in it so I gave her Ducky.

    My mom's cat would sit next to her and go after her knitting needles. When I was , he couldn't get my hook because it was too short. So he knocked my other hooks on the floor and started flinging them around. Ellie 13

    For those who may wonder, our return has nothing to do with the goings-on at Ravelry. The timing is coincidence. Financially, we had come to the point where we had to get out from under our expensive dedicated server at our old web host because our needs have changed. It was daunting to dig back in and get under the hood of Crochetville and start tinkering around, but I'm so glad to be back.

    Mona, I have tried to make a list like that, but then I get to feeling stressed out that so much is going undone and it gets me all anxious, which is the opposite of how I want to feel about crochet....so I keep a list of projects I want to make & who they're for (mostly baby gifts), and any dates that they need to be made by instead. At this point, if I don't have the yarn I need for a project, I really should just go to the next project because this stash is getting out of control. I actually can't think of a time I've ever had this much yarn, and now I have people just randomly giving me more! I was given some yarn by my friend's not-quite boyfriend...and it's all good stuff that I will use, in colors I like, so I can't even justify not keeping it....I'll be counting the skeins and seeing how low I'm starting this week out in a bit. On the up side, I've completed one of my really hard classes, and I'm 99% done with a second...two more weeks on the other 2 classes but with these 2 done I should have more time to hook on my hands!! Although I also have to help my mom paint her house this week, so maybe not lol....

    Thank goodness yarn has some give to it. Some things I tried were just a touch snug so I am going to try to loosen up a bit next time. I never played much with dolls and am finding it is tricky getting clothes on those arms. Chris does the bodice with a g hook and the skirt with an h hook to get a little more flair in the skirt. https://craftatticresources.blogspot.com/2018/12/american-girl-little-flamenco-dress.html?m=1 Here is one I am working on. I wasnt fond of the ch 2 dc in next stitch on back and replaced it with a v stitch plus worked it a little looser.

    Judy enjoyed the picture. Cindy I hope your mil starts doing better. I dont know how social she was before this but I can see myself doing what she is doing as I have isolation tendencies. I was painfully shy as a child. Tues we had rain, flash freezing that night and then a touch of snow on top. Wed we had the first sunshine we had seen in 10 days. We are looking at a few bitterly cold days down to around 0. I have made and made and mailed off a couple of shawls. Both were made with Lion Brand Mandala yarn.

    Here are some dollar store towels transformed using this double layered towel topper pattern. You just fold over the towel and crochet the towel topper onto the top without sewing or cutting. The jingle bells were also from the dollar store. I crocheted these for our local nursing home fundraiser this week.

    One blanket is for my church, the christening blanket project. The other is a paid commission for a baby shower. White was requested for the gift. That's the folded ghan. I used a reverse hdc for the border.

    Hi...I’m Harold and relatively new to crocheting. I guess it would be safe to say that my favourite projects are tablecloths. I have made about 15 over the past years which have been given to friends and family. They consist of round and square and now I am trying to make an oval one which I am having trouble getting started. I will be asking for help in the help board.

    Good morning, House. Brenda ~ It sounds like winter is on its way! I used to love seeing the green tomatoes ripen on the window ledge. One year we had fresh ripe tomatoes at Thanksgiving time. Hubby loves fried green tomatoes, so I used to use some for that. Such good news about your sister. ♥ Cindy ~ I hope you're having a quiet, relaxing weekend. I spent part of yesterday cleaning upstairs and rearranging my sewing room. Hmm, wonder who bought all that yarn! Lol I have two bags to donate to the senior center this week. Most of it is full skeins of RHSS that I've had for a long time. It feels scratchy to me, but I know a lot of people love using it. We had almost 4" of rain in about 4 hours yesterday. A cold front is coming this evening with another 5-7 inches expected by Tuesday and wind chills in the upper 20's! Yikes! I have a dental app't tomorrow a.m. but will stay home if there is flooding in Fort Worth like there was yesterday. 'Hope my newly planted pansies make it! We're meeting our friends for brunch and then we'll go to the store. Have a great Sunday, friends.

    Hi House. Mona ~ Oh, I hope you get some relief from the heat soon! We've had heat indexes over 100* lately, but it's cooler now and we're under a flash flood watch through Sunday. Have you made it to Sam's yet? Judy ~ The afghan is gorgeous! The cross is perfect and I know it will be cherished. I know what you mean about the pattern...love the way it looks when finished but there sure are a lot of shells. Cindy ~ I hope you're feeling a bit better today. I need to get the shingles shots, too. Thank you for the reminder - back on my to do list! Hi Collette! Yep, we're having the worst mosquito outbreak I can remember. I've been fogging the patio and around the garage just trying to keep the little devils from coming in the house! Brenda ~ I hope you're doing well! Staying in out of the rain today. I need to do some more cleaning, but crocheting sounds better. Lol I really like the girl who has been coming twice a month, but she is now a full time caregiver for her mom. Not sure if I'll try and find someone else or not. Have a good day, everyone. ♥♥♥

    Hello Everyone:) I got here a picture of one very "lonely" Hot Pad LOL. I probably should crochet one more, at least I would have a pair. I got that pattern from here, I do not have a link to that pattern. I remember one of our members crocheted many of them, they looked very nice:). That hot pad is made out of cotton yarn Sugar & Cream. It is double and is very thick. I am not crazy about my color combination here. I think it looks little "anemic" LOL. Those picture are from the same Trivet, both sides. Have a Great Day:) Krys PS: I know I am little late with posting baby stuff pictures. I did said I will post them yesterday, I was busy. I need to look and see what came out on those pictures.. LOL. I will post them tomorrow.

    This hasnt been tested.. Let me know if you find any corrections! Do no sell this pattern!! Mouse I used ww yarn, and an F hook. Do not join rounds, the mouse is made in one complete spiral. Use stitch markers or safety pins to mark end of each round Starting at nose, and working down to tail: Ch 2 1) 6sc in 2nd chain from hook 2) (2 sc in first sc, sc in next sc) repeat around ( 9 sc) 3) (2 sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc) repeat around (12 sc) 4) sc in each sc around 5) (2 sc in first sc, sc in next 3 sc) repeat around (16 sc) It is easiest if you embroider face here 6) sc in each sc around 7) (2 sc in first sc, sc in next 4 sc) repeat around (18 sc) 8) (2 sc in first sc, sc in next 5 sc) repeat around (21 sc) 9) sc in each sc around 10) (2 sc in first sc, sc in next 6 sc) repeat around (24 sc) 11) sc in each sc around. 12) (sc dec, sc in next 4 sc) repeat around ( 20 sc) 13) (sc dec, sc in next 3 sc) repeat around (16 sc) 14) (sc dec, sc in next 2 sc) repeat around (12 sc) Stuff 15) (sc dec, sc in next sc) repeat around (8 sc) 16) sc dec around (4 sc) Do not finish off Chain 12 (this will become the tail) Slip stitch in 2nd chain from tail, and in remaining chains going up to body. Finish off leaving long tail. Use long tail to close hole if necessary, weave in end. Ear (make 2) Chain 2 1) 6 sc in 2nd chain from hook 2) 2 sc in each sc around (12 sc) DO NOT JOIN THIS LAST ROUND Finish off. (by not joining, it gives you a few slightly flatter stitches, this part gets sewn on to mouse) Contrast Ear (make 2) With contrast color, Chain 2 1) 5 sc in 2nd chain from hook Join to first sc, and finish off leaving long tail Sew contrast to ears Sew ears to mouse. Placement notes: I cross stitched a small "X" at the very tip of mouse for nose. (in pink) I sewed on small button doll eyes between rows 2-3 for eyes I sewed the ears on, using row 5. Enjoy your mouse!
