  2. Except for the initials I'm going to add, I've finished the blanket for my goddaughter and her fiance. It's 60 inches across and the main color is Bernat teal blue...which doesn't photograph well of course. I stood on a chair to try and get a decent shot.

  4. Hello. It's been a long time since I have posted. I wanted to share a Navajo Afghan I finished this year for my sons' best friend, for a wedding gift. They hadn't registered anywhere for their wedding; and so I thought, "afghan". 😛 I asked my son what their living room colors were, and did my best to match them. It took me exactly 25 days to finish- I think that's a record for me. 😆

  5. I'm working on lucky clovers for my students. They are in the last grade and in May they are having their final exams. It's a tradition that they get the clovers before the exam. Usually the teachers just buy the pins, but if the teachers crochet?... I found 4 and the bookmark in my stash.

  11. Stingray This project is moving forward. I'm waiting on some paracord to close the island/ocean bag and that will be complete. I've started the ocean tower, which is supposed to be a bag corral reef type toy. Still making the little critters to live there.

  12. Good morning! Cindy, your Sophie is gorgeous! I love the colors. This week has been paperwork and sinus infection. I was supposed to have the grands today while DIL went to the dentist but she's under the weather too and had to reschedule. Not sorry about the change since my energy is still lacking and the antibiotics are causing the usual stomach issues. We're headed into a week of cooler weather, but I'm not complaining. Hope spring lasts quite a while and doesn't jump into summer too quickly. Hoping for some crochet time today.

Back from Pulmonary DR. not fun when they clamp you nose off and tell you to breathe into a tube, he says oh you're a nose breather, umm yes,I don't know are most people with COPD ,mouth breathers, there was only a slight change using an inhaler, they pushed that the last time,said I wasn't interested in an inhaler,so tried to push it, no talk to me about it in Oct., unless I'm gasping for air keep those blankity blank inhalers away from me. more lung function tests in Oct. asked if I was still smoke free, yes to the tune of 190+ days, he said good don't ever go back

  22. I think it's just a chain loop, and looks scalloped because of the thickness of the yarn, and the short space the chain spans makes it 'scrunch up'. I'm seeing 17 US DC in the first round, same # of DC in the second round with probably 1 chain between each DC, third round is *SC (or possibly slst), 3 chains, repeat. PS, welcome to the 'ville!

  31. I am guessing from what little info that was given that you are working into your foundation chain and you most likely will be making clusters all across. Since you put 5 stitches into one chain the 5 stitches need a little space to "fan" out for the shell and this is done by not working into some of the chains. Skip 3 chains means after completing your 5th dc in your cluster to count over and work your next stitch into the 4th chain (from the chain that the shell was made into). There will be 3 chains that nothing was worked into.

  33. Good Morning. I have been following the air fryer discussion. My toaster oven is soon to be replaced. Was looking at combo units (toaster oven/air fryer). Many times I am cooking for one so i dont want to use the big oven. I get my second shot on Thursday. Started work on a cross stitch project for my son's birthday. We are going to have the family together for Mothers Day weekend. (Mothers day falls on sons birthday this year.) I need to get back to crochet. I will get some Caron Pounders and work on lapghans for hospice and senior center. I can do those at

  34. The girls are here for a sleepover so the day started early. Sun again before thunderstorms later. DS came by yesterday and oiled the attic fan, opened the two attic windows, and made sure enough of the regular house windows would open, so we woke up to a nice cool house. Just closed everything up to keep that cool in since it's going to hit 80 today. We haven't used the attic fan in a number of years for one reason or another and I had forgotten how nice it is in the between seasons. The pool people are supposed to come today and uncover & treat the pool. I'm really looking forward t

  38. Very nice baby blankets. I made another pot holder and some bunny, flower and butterfly pins. I used 2 small balls and a skein of cotton (+ 4) . A co-worker gave me 3 skeins and 2 small balls (- 8 ) . I made pocket prayer shawls with the 2 balls and gave a skein away (+ 4) . All that and I got nothing this week.

  42. I don't know what type of yarn you used, but never block an acrylic wearable with heat. Acrylic blankets maybe, but I personally don't like the results; I've never had a reason to block acrylic. I don't see any dents and bumps, your booties are lovely as-is, and the purpose of blocking is not for fixing wonky stitches. Blocking with heat removes all the squishy, stretchy, soft nice properties of acrylic yarn, it turns it a bit 'crunchy' and it will not stretch and return to normal like it was before. I am a bit gobsmacked at the idea of blocking a blanket with sugar water. I u

  43. Hello everyone! I have added an icon to the editor toolbar so you can change the background color on text. It may be useful if you want to emphasize something like this. Below is an image showing which icon it is, circled in red.

  47. So, how does one know who is collecting squares at the moment? It was 80 degrees and sunny and it’s about to be 65 and rain. Ah. Kansas. My eyes are itching and stuff with allergies but I will not let it defeat me! Picture for posterity of the new thread.
