  1. Have you ever heard hoopoe? It sounds like alarm clock to me I like birds, especially forest ones, so when I found a pattern for Feathered Friends, I started with a hoopoe. The pattern is by Janine Holmes - MojiMoji Designs and includes lovebird, cockatiel, budgerigar, cockatoo and bald eagle. You can still join ami along on Amigurumi.com.

  2. So excited!! My sister-in-law/brother-in-law asked me to make two afghans for them to match some new chairs they have purchased. I am just in heaven when someone asks me to make something. I went yarn shopping this morning to purchase the yarn and have started the first one. Happy, happy girl here!

  5. Hi Lynn, welcome to the 'ville. Most of the thread you'll find in stores is #10 'bedspread' or 'doily' cotton, which IMO would make a rather crude veil. It typically comes in 400 yard balls but also in large ones over 1000 yards (Aunt Lydia's and Hobby Lobby brand that I know of), but like I said I'd not use it for a veil - I'm thinking you're wanting the sort of veil that women wore on their hats that could be pulled down over their face in the 1940's I think? Or a bridal or church head covering veil? The only place I know of that carries fine threads is Lacis in Berkeley California,

  6. Here is a new cat mat. More gifted homespun with leftover brown acrylic and light blue CSS. I like the softness of the CSS but I get a lot of loose loops with it which is not good for the cats. So I end up pulling it back or pulling the loop enough to tie it off. I finished a very scrappy one tonight but the ends aren’t weaved so I can’t count it as done. There is a lot of anxiety and disappointment crocheted into that one because of the Packers big fat loss tonight. Sigh..

  14. Very pretty. Be careful, I have a couple that the sleeves fall down, they are just on the edge of the arm. And the boobies do not hold the dress up. Kind of embarrassing when someone sees them on the table. You are really going to knock the socks off those kids next year.

  15. I had to look up hoopoe, it's to me too--how interesting! Apparently they are not in the Americas or Australia, alas. Your noting that they 'sound like an alarm clock' reminded me of the mockingbirds when I lived in California, they can sound like all sorts of things like phone ringtones, cats meowing...unfortunately they like to give concerts in the middle of hot nights when we tended to have the windows open...

  16. This one? (crochetville link at the bottom) A member who hasn't been active in a while posted her original pattern here on the 'ville over 10 years ago, Here is the link for the pattern (written in a post. Unfortunately the photo link is not working (this forum has undergone software changes and at one point photos were affected-- I remember having to amend some old posts to re-add photos). But the pattern seems to be a 2 row repeat so would be easy to swatch and see if it was the stitch pattern you were thinking of. I found another afghan by that name, listed in a book 'Weekend afghan

  25. This was designed for a slightly smaller Chelsea doll but the pattern adjusted easily enough. People wonder why I try to buy several of the same Barbie items to give out for a few years. Even the same dolls change sizes and the clothes need to be fitted to the new model. Chelsea Simply Bluetiful

  30. Hello from Mississippi! For several years now we've had a number of young men from South Africa come to our area as farm workers. We rented a house to a farmer for two of his employees for about three years and they were very nice, polite fellows--very good representatives for your country.

  31. That is a hard color and it's so hard to really judge colors on the computer. 1: Have you looked at the browns (Topaz) in Bernat Super Value Yarn? https://www.yarnspirations.com/bernat-super-value-yarn/164053.html?dwvar_164053_color=Soft Gray&cgid=yarn#prefn1=brand&prefv1=Bernat&start=7 2: Herrschner's worsted 8 yarn in pecan isn't really it but is a lighter brown. https://www.herrschners.com/herrschners-worsted-8-yarn/ 3: This caramel: https://www.herrschners.com/premier-everyday-worsted-yarn/

  32. Got my graph yesterday, so on to finding the right colors. That is going to be hard for the brown. It is 44 degrees here and that is a little too cold. Woke up about 5 this morning and the heater was on. Glad to see that is working. I bet the Strawberry farmers were up all-night last night. Here is the brown on the dog, any idea of the color name I could use?

  33. Welcome to the 'ville! A lot, if not most, crochet fabrics are not 'solid'. Rows of US DC is not going to be solid, you are going to see gaps - it's the nature of the beast. And if you are making edge stitches into the sides of DCs, there are likely to be gaps if you worked around the 'bodies' or 'posts' of the DCs--is the 'easiest' way to do it but that basically makes a gappy buttonhole. When I work down the sides of DC fabric, I don't work around the posts, I work into the stitch itself, by picking 2 spots for each DCs at the edge of the fabric and being consistent on how I place th

  36. For the Pocket Bear I used a the "Pocket Bear" pattern from the Spin A Yarn Crochet website. It's a very fun pattern. The unicorn I didn't use a pattern, just came out of my head. Thanks for looking. 🙂

  38. Creative Yarn Source carries Crochet Thread up to size 60. I've ordered their size 10, 20, 30 and been pleased with the quality of the thread. I got some colors in 10 that I hadn't been able to find. Prior to this I'd only seen Size 20 in white and off white and I'd never found 30 in anything but white. It is nice to be able to get colors.

  41. Lea, I hope you don't have to go out if it's icy! I slept late and woke up to snow. Maybe 2" and it's above freezing so it won't last long. Really windy. Our weather this month has been like riding on a yoyo.

  42. Well here its 25°, ground is white and its snowing again. The first two dogs of the day wanted nothing to do with going outside. Their MO is not to go out for their owners in bad weather but dh is more firm with them. They know they have to at least pee for him before going back in. Dh also cleaned snow off of his friends (lady) cars. Says its a perk of his dog walking service. Loaded the crockpot up with vegetables and tenderloin. Should be ready for supper. Guess I should make some cornbread to go with it. Working on doll blankets and started a doll dress.

  47. I have tried to crochet the American doll pants and cannot figure out what align legs, join with 6 single crochets, chain 1. If everything is supposed to start in the middle, where do the 6 single crochets go when everything else has been dc?

  48. Hi, welcome from me too :-) this is a kind of shorthand that some people are using in patterns now, which I personally think is confusing. It does not mean what you asked if it meant. What round 3 is trying to say is to dc once into each of the next 2 sts, then in the 3rd st you make 2 dc sts (this is the increase). you repeat that sequence around, repeating it 6 times. at the end you wil have 24 sts. round 4 is make one dc in each of the next 3 sts, make 2 dc in the 4th st, and repeat that around, doing that sequence a total of 6 time. at the end you wil have 30 sts.
