    My granddaughter wanted me to paint her a flower for her bedroom. It is a small painting on canvas. I used acrylic paint. I scanned that and those colors did not came out right . Those colors looking a lot more muted than they really are. Now I just need to frame that. Krys

    I wait for shipping sales at Herrschners because their shipping breaks are often worth more than the % off coupons. I looked at an earlier offer this week and with shipping the cost of my item was more than the coupon I was getting. I needed a shipping deal and it arrived today. So for any of you waiting to buy today might be your day. The sale is only good for today Monday Jan 20th Minimum purchase requirement of $35 Code: FUNDAY20 (all one word) Deal: 20% your order of $35 and $.20 shipping

    I just ran across this pattern and absolutely LOVE the edging. And I rarely make blankets. I'm not sure how practical the edging is, but it is lovely. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/flower-garden-baby-blanket-3

    Exactly my thinking!! So I could only find the small 2.5 oz Sugar N Cream skeins and I wasn't sure how many I would need...and I figured better over buy than under buy...and there was a 20% off coupon good for today only......so.....I brought home 14 of them lol....plan is to start with the NICU blanket & see how much that takes, and then move on to octopi and hats...and extra blankets if there's enough left over...I'll take the hit to my score! Have to have something finished to be washed & dried & delivered to the new auntie Wednesday evening, so here I go!!

    The chains count as stitches. This is normally true in all patterns, the odd thing about this one is that they also count the turning ch-1 as a stitch; normally turning chains count in all stitches but sc. "Round 2: Turn, ch 1(counts as st), [1 sc, ch 1] 3 times, 1 sc. (8 total sts in row)" (diagrammed, reading left to right, the opposite way you'll see the stitches form--x is sc, o is chain): turn, o [x o x o x o] x So you can see, there are 6 stitches inside the brackets, and 1 stitch on either end outside the brackets, for a total of 8.

    You need to ask your requester what they expect. I doubt it's yarn of any type. You want something very flat, thin and 'not squishy'. When 'tablecloth' and 'crochet' are mentioned in the same sentence, it normally means doily thread and tiny motifs, or could be a solid piece in filet perhaps, but still tiny thread. Miles and miles of doily thread (literaly, until recently Red Heart used to sell balls of crochet thread that had more yardage than a mile; I've gone thru about 1.5 of them making doilies....over several years....but I would never make myself, or offer to make someone else, a tablecloth. It's a HUGE project.) You can run down to Walmart and get a fabric tablecloth for....arbitrarily picking the biggest size for the first one that came up in a search, 60"x102"...$17.88. It would take $17.88 several times over just for the thread you'd need. Heck, I'd charge more than $17.88 just to add a narrow-ish thread lace edging around an existing tablecloth that size, would be 9 yards of lace edging--of course they might have a smaller table, but ...! And if by some odd chance they said, for example, that a tablecloth made out of Read Heart Super Saver is OK...You wouldn't be able to buy the yarn to cover a table for that amount. And we haven't mentioned the cost of your labor... ...I brought up the Walmart example because people gauge 'value' at what they can pay retail for a similar-use item, which is often less than a crafter's material, let alone time. [edit, I should add, I BOUGHT myself a "lace" tablecloth at Walmart maybe 15-ish years ago, I'm remembering it was about $15 - not a vinyl one, a machine knitted 'fake crochet filet' style. I just looked, they still have similar ones online for about the same price]

    Wow, what a fancy kitty palace. It looks like there is some framework in there, see how each side of the 'seam' it appears to be bulging out a little? Could be plastic pipe maybe...

    Very similar in size to the last one I linked (with the yarn chewing cat). That pattern was 37cm across, which is about 14.5 inches...I was trying to think of how big a curled up cat was and thinking a tad over 12", so that sounds about right. The OP's pattern is (pretty much) the same size, 14". Elmoflim, unless I'm mistaken your project looks like it's quite a bit bigger. I think you are going to have to go down a few hook sizes. I'm not gonna lie, if your hands don't hurt the hook is probably too big for this to stand up on it's own. But then I'm not so young any more and it doesn't take much to get my hands to hurt...your fabric needs to be very stiff, like cardboard, for this to work. Actually, remember that clothesline? Would be a perfect technique for this whole bed, not just the opening for that other 'cat cave' pattern. Maybe going down a few hook sizes and crocheting over a couple of strands of your yarn would help get the stiffness you need. And size does matter here, to big and it's more apt to collapse.

    Here is one. It uses 4 strands. I cant work with 3 and work tight as it needs to be. There is discussion at end as to yarns tried and failed. http://byjennidesigns.blogspot.com/2016/01/Marleyscatcaveorbed.html?m=1

    Katy love the blanket. You do such a good job putting the colors together. Mary Jo the drum deck is new this year and houses the big drum that they used to wheel onto the field for pregame. Last Sun's game drum honoree was Clark Hunt and Tony Dipardo Spirit Leader was Paul Rudd just like last year's AFC championship game. They use different people every game generally former Chiefs player, Royals players, or special guests. Not sure about Rudd's dad. I did a search and his dad passed in 2008 and was a vice president at TWA. He might have been one of the many in the past to have done it. Another day with snow. It alternated between snowing really hard and rain multiple times today.

    Welcome to the 'ville! The only reason I could think of to fasten off would be if it had you starting again without turning (to keep the same side facing), but it would have spelled that out. I agree the 'fasten off' doesn't belong there--as a double-check, the same lace pattern in the cap doesn't mention fastening off.
  28. 1 point
    It may just be a typo,where the wording accidentally got repeated in both sentences. At least I also don't see any reason to fasten off there.

    Darski...here in the Phoenix area there are a few high end thrift shops. There are 3 that are operated by animal shelters and one that is operated by a non-profit hospice that I know about. Maybe you could find a place like that. A few years ago, Goodwill stores started popping up everywhere here. I can get to 6 within 10 minutes. They do have their purpose, but I have noticed that their prices have been a bit high. I one saw a "$5 Old Navy Tee" for $3.99. That just seemed silly. They also seem to vary greatly. I've seen a bag with two skeins of yarn go from $1.99 to $4.99. I hope you find a place that suits you. And speaking of Darski...I have tried her Little Flamenco Dress again. I could not pass up some new yarn at Joanns on Sunday. It's sparkly and I thought it would make a fun dress. I need to make a little flower or find a cute button for the front. I'm kind of addicted to the pattern now that I have it figured out. I'm already looking around my room for another color to try.

    It was back to work today and then a stop at walmart. I have a load of laundry in the dryer and I'm feeling a little tired so I think the rest of the evening will be spent crocheting. We are currently at 56 degrees and expect a low of 42 tonight, this is cold for south Florida, I want my warm weather back. I hope you are all staying safe and warm.

    Good morning everyone! New here. I love reading all your posts! This winter is weird here in NH, but since there is only 3 inches of snow on the ground I won't complain! I know that Feb will wallop us. It always does. So a little about me: I work in a hospital lab, sort of in charge of chemistry, though I do have a manager above me. We just got a new instrument for testing auto-immune diseases and such. Today will be testing the tests themselves to see if when I order them in our lab information system (LIS), if the instrument recognizes the test order on the bar code, and then sends the result back to the LIS. My two DDs have another day off of school today. Hopefully they won't kill each other while DH and I are working.

    Hi ladies. cold here and lots of snow on the ground. The grandkids came by this afternoon to go sledding. I actually finished one of my UFOs! It’s a knit baby surprise sweater. It just needed to have the sleeves sewn together, a single crochet row around the neck and 5 buttons sewn on. (I will get a picture in daylight, hopefully tomorrow.) I probably won’t ever make another one. It took me forever! I also finished one of my mother in laws projects, but it was just a dishcloth. I have put all my WIPs on a shelf and. I plan to work on them and get at least some of them finished. I’m embarrassed to say that even after frogging some and throwing away a few, there are still at least 15, mostly crochet, but a couple of knit projects as well. Plus, it is quite likely that more will surface...... Things seem to be settling down for a bit here. Dd is pretty much settled into her new house and although she still technically has possession of her condo, she gave the keys to the buyer on Saturday. BIL was hospitalized for chemo again last week, but was discharged yesterday and may be in remission. He is still debating the pros and cons of a stem cell transplant. Who knows....I might even find time to grocery shop this week!

    Sp is abbreviation for space. A chain space is the space you create whenever you make a chain between other stitches. The part in italics is just a review of what you've done in the row. what is the title of the book, and name of this shawl?
  42. 1 point
    Not stupid questions, just the first time you've encountered a new thing. You are right in your guess to your first question, some patterns end each row with a helpful 'sanity check' summary of the total stitches you are supposed to end up with for that row. A chain space is a span of chains between other stitches, example rnd 1 has the equivalent of 2 sets of 6 triples+ch2, so the ch2 is a ch sp. If a lacy pattern has a complex repeat with different length chain spaces in 1 round, the following row or round will usually say 'do x in the chain 5 space, do y in the chain 2 space' for clarity. But in your pattern, for that rnd it's all ch2 spaces so 'ch sp' suffices.

    Granny Square, I’ve done that for other projects, and will probably end up winding the skeins soon that I have been using most. Just need a place to put them. I found a link to just use a basket that has holes in it, and I might try that and see how well the ideas work together. Thanks!!

    I should mention that I am hoping to finish up some patterns I have on the go but I think it is time to hang up my designer's hat. It is just too difficult to type the patterns and to take and process pictures. I want to thank all the members here who have been so supportive of my stuff over the years. I started here a good many moons ago and it has been fun.
