  1. Did anyone see the America Strong piece on ABC World News last night? One woman went online looking for an appointment for a shot which she needed to get before she could have her needed heart surgery. Another woman (who also needed a shot due to compromised immune system) gave the heart surgery woman her appointment because she felt that woman needed it more. They went down together and explained the reason for the swap at the vaccination site and it was allowed.

  6. Another note on the good news front we've been waiting since before Thanksgiving to get a tree removed from our backyard off our fence. It's been cancelled twice due to snow which of course creates more tree damage that is more severe than ours dropping us further down the list. This morning DH is working from home looks out the window and says, "There are 2 strangers in our backyard." Normally this would be a bad thing but it was the tree people and we are finally free of our November storm damage. It was worth the waiting for them they did an excellent job.

  8. We too often forget to look for the good in people and it doesn't make it into the news very often. Thanks for sharing your experience. Being kind really doesn't take much effort and I think it can inspire others to be kind in return. We could sure use a snowball effect in that regard. LOL

  9. There is much that is dark in the world to share but I also think it is important to recognize the real good in people. I broke my nose piece on my glasses today which while not a huge issue is a challenge because my back up glasses are a few generations from my current prescription and in order for these glasses to work properly with the multiple levels they do have to sit correctly or you get blurred vision and headaches. DH called the eye place to find out what the COVID regulations were for going in to get them replaced thinking we might be able to get in tomorrow as they were ab

  10. Hi everyone! I'm Amanda, when I'm online I generally go by sinema (like 'cinema'), or sin for short. Found this group on Ravelry recently and decided that today would be the day I jump in and finally start trying to participate in a crochet community. Crocheting has been an on-and-off hobby since I was a kid, alongside writing, gaming, film, and technology like computers and cameras. At this point, my main hobby is collecting hobbies. I have three guinea pigs, two of which you can see in the profile photo -- Spooky (left, black and orange) and Rumor (right, white w/ red eyes). I have a thi

  12. Our Generation Seashell Summer Dress I am taking a shot at using up crochet thread as part of my attempt to attack the neglected parts of my stash in order to decrease my stash this year. This is also my first Our Generation outfit for the donation this year. Mom sent me a bunch so I wasn't as concerned about getting started with outfits as I was with the other dolls.

  22. Back in the '80s a co-worker had a side business selling makeup and 'doing your colors' which was a 'thing' back then. I'm a Summer (blue overtones, more on the pastel side of colors) so yeah, oranges and yellows aren't my thing either.

  23. I thought it was interesting. I've been following some of these for years. When I have more time I'm going to explore some of the others. There are some really interesting crochet bloggers out there who share some amazing patterns of their own design or can send you to patterns that you didn't know about for inspiration. I love finding new to me crochet bloggers, especially when we make similar items.

  24. I put red numbers in row 3's scanto count the stitches, 1 + 2, then the stuff in the bracket is 3 stitches x3=9, then 1, so a subtotal of 13. Then you do all that AGAIN, so now you have 13x2=26 stitches. Then at the very end is 1 stitch in the last stitch, for a total of 27. I hope that makes sense?

  29. Ohhhh. I never did find any steel hooks back when these first came out. My DH made wood handles on the steels that I used the most. I have the Clover Amour steel hook set and I love them. Although, I haven't worked on thread crochet in a couple of years. I know I have a WIP thread doily that needs my attention. It seems like I'm always working on something else.

  30. Did almost 3 miles on my walking bike today. Went to ACE hardware to get hubby another yeti cup. His first one ismin constant use , i am hoping having a second one will let me clean them more regularly. 3 miles may mot seem much but I havent been able to do that walk since last March. Spring break, ugh, here we go again! It doesnt happen where I live but last year the governor should have closed the state and the beaches to outsiders. Yes, the vaccine is here and oir seniors are getting protected, but, seniors are not the only ones who live here and we are not out of this pandemi

  35. Yay!! I'm so glad you have a new iPad! You will be set for a long time now. Data transfer is a real pain, no shame in having someone else do it for you. Your hats look great!

  36. Well, I did it. I have a new iPad. I actually bought it from a local Mac Media store because our Apple store is still closed. I actually like the Mac Media store because they are very helpful. I took the new one home all hopeful just to return 90 minutes later so they could do the data transfer for me. I really do need to take time to learn new technology. But who has time when there are hats to crochet? Here is the first black variegated hat and his new buddy made with a different brand of yarn and the K hook.

  37. Judy nice blankets. Wow your goddaughter did a fantastic job on the jacket. Tues we got up to a glorious 70° with lots of sunshine. The 40° the past couple of days has been great too. We keep watching to see how long it takes to melt enough ice ion the lake for all the fish habitat to sink. Got our second shots today.

  42. Good luck with your project, I agree a 'tube style skirt' is the way to go, but it probably won't be exactly a tube. Look at the photo, it widens from the bra under-bra to the hem, you will have to measure yourself and figure out how wide it needs to be at the waist and hem, and the distance below the under-bra you have to achieve a comfortable ease at the waist, hip and beyond. Ease means the difference between your actual body measurement and the garment; you will want the dress a little bigger than 'you' to be comfortable and be able to get in and out of it (positive ease-- this is w

  43. Good Morning! Apparently Build A Bear store has Dr. Who bears! My husband is a big whovian from way back in the day so I think I need to make some Dr. Who bears for him. I have a simple bear pattern I can accessorize for different characters. Hooray another project to do while staying safe at home!

  45. Well, the giraffe is done that is going with the blanket. The giraffe is 10 inches Tall. It is from the Annie's Attic pattern Itty Bitty Animals. They are usually made out of thread, but I used ww yarn and a G hook. In thread this giraffe is 4 inches tall. I have sent a picture to my friend to show her what will be going with the blanket.

  47. I'm a huge fan of children's learn to crochet books. I checked a bunch out of the children's library and even bought a few when I was starting out. The pictures tend to be incredibly detailed and the directions very specific. I have the Crochet Answer book and picked it up as a kindle book a few years ago when it was on sale for practically nothing. I also loved the Teach Yourself Visual Crochet for the pictures. The projects in the kids books weren't terribly appealing but other than the dish cloths I made I didn't keep any of the early projects I made. The dish cloths were used unt
