    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.)

    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

    Wow, so pretty! Post stitches can be very pretty, but for me are slow work.

    I've wanted to make this for years. I have a little girl in mind or I may make another for her and send this to Appalachian Outreach. Mary Maxim kit with pattern. I changed the outfit a bit and added a hat. Different color blanket. My gauge was way off from pattern....I adapted.

    I don't use bags, exactly; for my project, I use something similar to this, sort of a bag but you can close it up; caveat, I don't take my work with me, it stays at home, but since it stands and stays open by itself, there's less trouble 'rummaging around' to find things. It might not be the best solution if you carry it around wherever you go, it does close and you can carry it around by the wooden handles but doesn't 'stay closed' very well (maybe there are versions that have some sort of strap to keep it shut, or it really wouldn't be that hard to improvise something I suppose). If you sew, there are patterns/instructions on the net to make your own, Martha Stewart has a pattern using yardsicks for the frame which is super clever. I crocheted a hook case for my aluminum hooks--this is the pattern I used for aluminum hooks, one from the same designer for steel hooks. 'Other stuff' like tapestry needles, tape measure, scissors etc. is in a clear zippered makeup bag, which along with the hook cases are kept in the legged project caddy. For yarn & thread stash (I'm not a big stash hoarder), I use lidded plastic tubs and a plastic 'chest of drawers'.

    You should! Of course, I tell myself the same thing and then lament the time not spent on crochet, or reading, or genealogy, or... lol!

    The purses are made using yarn. The difference in the dolls is so small, it does not make a big difference. They have a different type of face and the color is different. The others are lighter. I have not bought the ones from MM because of the price. The others are just as good. I use them all the time.

    Dorian is like the Halloween movies. It is the storm that will not die. Overslept this morning, as last night was a bad night for sleeping. The humidity is up so high, that they are giving a Heat Advisory for noon. It will be to hot and humid outside. Glad to hear everyone is ok Carol. It is always scary, when there is an accident. I had to laugh last night before the game. They had the whole family who own the Bears on, even the wee baby. So they all yelled let's go Bears. The littlest one started to cry. They scared him. Hey Brenda, Rogers looked like he did when he first started. The Bears defense was scary. If not for them, they would of lost a lot bigger. Ok, I am happy FOOTBALL has started. Have a great day.

    Hello everyone. Late post today because I left my house at about 6:30 this morning and drove to the hospital almost 2 hours away. Spent some time with my daughter, son-in-law and the baby. Then came to my daughter's house and a friend dropped off the 2 older kids. We hung out for about an hour then went to lunch and to the hospital to visit. Made a stop at Walmart on the way home for supplies for dinner, my granddaughter requested homemade chicken noodle soup before I even got here. So that is on the stove simmering. It's going to be a lazy evening since I am feeling very tired, I think all the anxiety and excitement have taken it's toll on me and I need to relax a bit. My daughter, son-in-law and the baby should be home tomorrow. Turns out the new baby is a bit of a local celebrity, he was the first hurricane baby at the hospital where he was born. A local tv station was at the hospital last night and the newspaper today. I haven't seen an update on Dorian since early this morning but I hope it stays away from land. I guess that's it for now, I hope you all have a wonderful relaxing evening.

    I have a fascination with rocks--love picking them up when I have the opportunity or buying them (small inexpensive ones). I try to pick up a few any time we go to a different state. We have no naturally occurring rocks here.

    CUTE! . That yarn is really nice, looks very soft & cuddly. That yarn looks like "Bernat Blanket Yarn", but I am not sure. What kind of yarn is that?. Thanks for the tutorial. Krys

    Morning all! I have been sick for over a week. No cold ! My head spins a tad and all I want to do is throw up. I can lay still and be somewhat okay. It started with the migraine for 5 days in a row. Behind my eyes aches like nothing before.i didn't get a wink of sleep for 3 days straight. Doctor was stumped cause I really didn't have any symptoms other than that. Gave me Zofran which was a life savor. I would say pregnancy um but nope not here.. Had all that taken care of. I am just now starting to feel better. Been laying and sleeping on ad off. What ever it was hoping it is behind me now. Little Man starts kindergarten today ! He's five years old now!! They grow up so fast.

    Hi, I need to read the directions and then join you all. Love the lost soul blanket. Will have to look that one up to make. Been watching the Planet Earth progress . I never join those cause I never can figure out what yarn to use for it or the color. But love it!!

    Beautiful blanket. So suttle and serine. The colors are just perfect.

    Great job stashbusting this week! I finished the planet earth blanket but didn't use up any more skeins. In fact they said it took 9 skeins but to get 10 to be able to manipulate the colors if you wanted to. I have two unused skeins and probably half of a third one in two pieces left over. Oh well, better too much than running out before you're done.

    Well HELLLLLLLLLOOOOOO there peeps! I have been gone for a ridiculous amount of time!! 🙄 Life has been crazy. I'm hoping to get back into Crochetville regularly....I miss it! I'm going on 8 years with my Chiro office in Pittsburgh with some ups and downs. My parents moved here 3 years ago and are loving it! I got married almost 2 years ago! We bought a house last year and a week later my office flooded due to crazy rain in Pitt (they are still fixing roads from all of last years rains and this year there are more mud slides and problems ) I now have a craft room And dh has a man cave that I like to call the game room! Haha. Here is my new yarn storage.....

    I don't think you are doing anything wrong, you are comparing 2 very different stitches, why should they both be the same proportion?. Not trying to be obnoxious, honest, but if SC is a better proportioned stitch for you for colorwork (that is probably designed for sc ), stick with that stitch and leave Tunisian for monochrome or striped projects. The late great Jean Lienhauser used to be active here, and she would talk about the golden loop to control the height of one's stitches, but I'm not certain that applies to Tunisian (the idea was to control stitch height with the initial yarn over of a stitch, lift it up higher or snug it down lower). Or this Doris Chan article might be an interesting read about stitch heights https://dorischancrochet.com/2009/01/05/confessions-of-a-lifter/

    I made some more squares for the afghan (11 more to go), got bored and made another potholder. I used 2 balls cotton and rolled 2 more down (+4) . I think the people who do the craft table at the church fair are going to like the smilie potholders. I made 2 batches of pickles and I had enough green beans to make a green bean casserole.

    Here is my latest batch of mini Christmas stockings for the troops. I played around with striping on some of these stockings using this cuffed stocking pattern. I still have a huge skein of paddy green yarn to use up so more green stockings are definitely in my future. 😄

    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?

    Made some dishcloths & scrubbies will be posting them in show & tell. Working on the embossed crochet. I have 2 squares done, need 12. I said embroidery crochet, but it is embossed.

    Debbie, thank you! It's a possibility that we may see swaps again, but we're going to need a lot more activity and participation here first. Right now we don't have the critical mass needed to make swaps feasible. Swaps were often difficult to manage, so we would need some reliable, enthusiastic swap leaders who have the time to give to managing a swap.

    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.

    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.
