  2. Here is a batch of mini Christmas stockings for Warmth for Warriors. These were crocheted using the mini BLO stocking pattern and the cuffed stocking pattern. All about 6 inches long. These are all packaged up for shipping along with 6 hats for this year's drives for W4W.

  8. I have all of the above including a gas grill and a solar oven, years ago we considered ourselves bonafide homsteaders, but age is catching up...do I want to go to lunch with my friends, crochet, read, or set up a sun oven , etc...I'm just lazy the older I get, shame on me. If I can find a good used one, if not, no since buying a new fangled stove if we are moving. I am trying to talk dh into a free standing townhome, I found one I LOVE, he says we need more land (??????), nope, I'm pushing hard for that one.

  9. Not getting in the shower till I am totally steady. For now it is a wash at the sink. Thanks for the laugh about the water balloons. Never knew you could make reusable ones. Our state has had no mask needed outside if you were vaccinated. The rest of the country is catching up to Florida and Texas. We still need them in the Dr. office and the stores, but once you leave, you are FREE. Bill Mahr, thinks of himself as a comedian, says he had both shots and now he has COVID, so get ready.

  10. Our Gov just lifted the mask mandate for all folks vaccinated. Can't go anywhere without gas so hope our little town gets some soon, scared to travel out much until the pumps are flowing again. Did get my hair done today, yesterday was a doc appt. MJ, glad you are feeling better but so sorry about yesterday... I think the bar is a good idea you should do one for the shower, if you fell in there all your bits and pieces would be out for the world to see when EMS came to help you up...:) I am making reuseable water balloons for the grands for summer, that will keep me busy for a

  11. Good morning everyone. Ah Lea, a shrimp on the Barbie is funny. You can even make crocheting funny. Didn't even get on yesterday, as I spent most of the day sleeping. Got a cortisone shot in the knee yesterday, does not feel to bad. AS usually I leave a place in style. I left the Dr. off went to get into the car and WHAM down I went. 4 nurses and 2 therapy guys finally got me into the car. Embarrassing is not the word. I swear everyone but the Dr. was looking. Very bad arthritis in the right knee. Sunday we will have bars put into the toilet area to help me get u

  14. Went out on the walking bike yesterday, covered about a mile. Was going to try again today but the skies are very threatening and 94% chance of rain so Im staying put. Finished my book about Sister Bernadette Moriau -she was healed of a serious disease which led to paralysis at the Grotto of Lourdes. So I habe accomplished something today!

  19. Even Barbie is getting ready for grilling season. Barbie Barbeque I can't believe you converted me to thread Tampa Doll but having the ergonomic hooks has really made the difference. I'm not sure it will ever be my first choice for projects but it is no longer the voyage of the dammed. All of Barbie's family should hopefully have a few outfits to head off in for the donation.

  23. Lea, you made me tired just reading about your visit with family, but it sounds like you had a great time. My mother's day wasn't as uneventful as I hoped it would be. My granddaughter and son-in-law stopped by to visit for about an hour, which was very nice. But then I had to take my mother to the walk in clinic for thrush in her mouth, then go to the pharmacy to pick up prescriptions. I was also awake during the night because she was up very late and making a lot of noise. She is feeling better today so hopefully it will be a quiet night. After work today I took my dad for his 2nd Covid

  25. When we moved I enlightened him! He was not going to be running off doing fun stuff leaving me here to clean house. He settled into a nice routine when I was with my sis so much. He is very regimented and that carries over into his cleaning schedule. It cracks me up how he obsesses over his floor. If I get crumbs on his floor I try to sneakily scoot them over under his seat so he thinks he dropped them. When I am cooking and cleaning vegetables I just say sorry for the floor but you want to eat right?

  30. Oh, ribbing, of course! (headslap) Silly me, I should have thought of that. I wasn't too far off with my guess tho, you are working into the ends of rows You have made the ribbing, and sewn it into a tube. Now, you need to 'grow' the leg warmers from what was 1 side of the ribbing, 'up' toward the knee. Turn the ribbing tube so it looks like |||||||| . You will be working across the top of the now-vertical ribbing, which WAS the sides of the ribbing (row ends) as you were making it. See how the 'leg' part of the pattern starts, 'working across top edge in ends of rows?

  32. Happy Mother's Day to everyone. Today will be quiet. My GD , GS and his GF, DD and SIL will be here for dinner. We're ordering take-out to give my DD a break from cooking. GD gave me a beautiful bouquet of blush roses. So pretty. We try to keep it simple here and not so commercialized. I'm on the last round of the blanket border! I think I crocheted a bit too much last night as my finger joints are complaining. It will pass. I hope everyone has a great day celebrating whether you're far are near to your loved ones.

  33. Does your item use short rows - where you would make a 'hill' by not working all the way across a row, missing a stitch or 2 on each end (for example), and then eventually working all the way across - this would involve working over row ends, if not working into them. I could see that happening if your leg warmers had a strap or heel under the foot, perhaps. Is there a link to see what the end result will look like?

  34. Happy Mother's Day! Ratdog, sounds like you had a great day. We're considering attending Disney's Boo Bash in the fall, we haven't been there since before the pandemic. I was planning to take my dad for his covid vaccine today, but checked the website again yesterday and they are closed in observance of Mother's Day. He has to start his vaccine again because he was in the hospital when he was suppose to get the 2nd dose. He wants to stick with pfizer since that's what he had the first time. My little granddaughter might becoming to hang out today but no definite plans for the day. My

  36. Hi ladies. Hope you are doing well. Mona, your dahlia blanket is gorgeous. It sounds like you found a good place for the raccoon. Really nothing to report here. I have been doing little bits on my Sophie’s Garden afghan but I haven’t been very enthused about it. I might have to dig out another UFO to work on for awhile.

  37. good evening! A perfect day in the theme parks as a family! Weather rwas beautiful. A bit warm but not until the afternoon. Fun on the rides, nice dinner. Now tucked in for the night (early but, oh well) with a glass of wine. Used the walking bike all day (a bit of a sore bottom but the leg is fine!) Couldn't ask for a more Blessed day!

  38. Have you tried making slippers using Tunisian crochet? Because of the nature of the craft, the fabric that is built is very dense and is perfect for making slippers! I started this project as an experiment to try shaping with short rows. It turned into these lovely slippers that I’ve been using to keep my feet warm during chilly spring days! This pattern uses only Tunisian Simple Stitches and takes advantage of short rows to shape the slippers. This is a fairly quick project and, since it comes in 9 sizes, it is a perfect for making a set for yourself and your little ones! At th

  40. I think this pattern was written by a not-native-English speaker, or written in another language and run through a translator program. Also a clue at the end where it says 'in the same way we knit...", in some languages (Russian is one) the same word is used for both knit and crochet. No clue what p or np means, the p or pp near the beginning might mean 'round' or 'rounds'. Wild guess np might be 'don't turn', or 'don't join' Forward displacement suggests working a post stitch, but again guessing. In one loop - guessing back loop. There are a lot of well written self publishe

  41. Another shower and more blooms opened. Another shower and they were so heavy they were hanging just about to the ground. I snipped them and they are in a vase. I finished the doily I mentioned. Still need to block. Decided this one is for mom, too. One more doily in the magazine I want to make...sometime. Happy Mother’s Day.

  42. We have plants that would love your heat and humidity. They are native to Puerto Rico. Problem with bonsai people is they want trees from every where in the world except their native stuff. In Puerto Rico if you want to do junipers from my area you need to refrigerate them for a few months.

  43. Chris Love the mermaid and Reni that is a cool octopus. If you don't want to go down to thread, try size 5 or 3 cotton. They will bring the size down. Usually with size 10 thread, it cuts the size in 1/2. I have not looked at mine lately, but I think the 5 or 3 cotton uses a B or C hook or even a D. I have 3 packages to go out. I just have to get them packed up. Have a great day.
