    Well, here are two little pups I have been working on. I made the light colored one and then decided I needed the 12mm noses. So I ordered some and the second one has the nose. Now they will be leaving soon for their new home. They are from a kit from Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Crochet-Dogs-Adorable-Projects-Lovers/dp/1684124972 They are 4.5" tall and 4" long. I bought the kit, because it had a Dalmatian. They also have a cute pug and schnauzer. So here are the boys.

    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.)

    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?

    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.

    I did want to let y'all know what I have been up to. It took me 3 months to make the 2 stroller blankies and one dress (I had the first one made ages ago.) I am trying to decide if I should just donate all my yarn (and get about a million points in stashbusting) or if I should keep some in case I can crochet again. (In the old days, it would have taken me 3 days and not 3 months to do this bit 😢

    Finished this a couple weeks ago but just getting around to posting it. It was four rounds before I realized I wasn't doing the back post trebles and rather than frog all that hard work, I incorporated it into the finished product. It's just a design variation I keep telling myself. lol Here it is covering my queen-sized bed with generous overlap all around (but not bedspread length). I'm glad I stuck with it. However, I am on to more soothing colors of a shawl.

    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!!

    That's always fun, Pam! I got a Mary Maxim one, but so far have just ordered non-yarn items. But I'm sure there's some yarn in my future, too.

    Thanks for letting me join. I'm 73 and have been crocheting for over 40 years. I took a hiatus from crocheting about 6 years ago when we moved across the country and all my yarn has been in time-out. I gave away several large totes when we moved but it was for a worthy cause so I don't feel bad about it. I started quilting about 18 years ago but last year I was burned out on it and quit. Then I got out my cross stitch and have been stitching samplers ever since. Last week, I decided to get my crochet back out and found I had a partial afghan done so I've been working on it. I'm on the hunt for Vanna White's Choice yarn, which I understand has been discontinued. I'm glad to be back to crocheting. I'm in NW AZ so we get cooler weather in the winter so crocheting will be for the winter months for me.

    The Traveling book did finally arrive yesterday which means I can package up the first box to go out tomorrow. The other book I need for package 2 is still traveling. It's first attempt to reach me got lost so I'm waiting on a replacement. Today we have the Snow Family. I love having child friendly decorations that they can touch or play with and you don't have to be concerned that the items will be destroyed. Snow Family

    Well, I got this kit from Mary Maxim, cause I thought it was cute. Baby penguins and baby dolls dressed as penguins. Now I have to say, they are knitted, but still cute.

    Thank you I've been crocheting a LONG time! And learned from a LOT of mistakes along the way. I learned to crochet as a teen ager, way pre-internet, had 1 evening of lessons (school chum's mom) and then was on my own. And was given a pile of vintage doily pattern books and had to solve problems by trial and error as vintage patterns are more 'terse' than modern patterns. And, I'm still discovering so many new things. I try to answer questions in a way that would have made me go when I first encountered the same problem. Or not just say "do this", I try to explain the steps of my thought process of how to figure out the answer (especially if an instruction is really vague) to hopefully help the poster to be able to solve the next dilemma on their own. It's mostly "what are the things it could mean; what would happen if I did each one of the things I can think of, would the stitch count be right, would it look like the pattern photo, etc".

    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

    This tablecloth will be for my 32 year old Granddaughter. Four years ago she was diagnoses with breast Cancer and underwent rounds of chemotherapy followed by double mastectomy. In November 2018 she underwent reconstructive surgery. The mastectomy meant that three of her lymph nodes had to be removed as well leaving her with a compromised immune system and is now prone to infections. Preop testing also showed that she had a small brain tumor which was successfully removed. now recovering from this ordeal, she just moved into her own apartment and she has an oval kitchen table. Knowing that I crochet, she asked me if I could make her a tablecloth. This is a huge project that I willingly undertook and the chart pattern is one that I found online. The actual colour is a dusty rose which is her favourite colour. much more to do on it yet but I hope to have it finished for her as a Christmas gift.

    Katy I had to fight to stay awake for the game. Needless to say I zonked out as soon as it was over. Being out in the heat wore me out more than the work. I was stiff and sore that night but was ok by morning. Today we hauled the bird bath to my nieces house and set it up, dropped our excess cucumbers off at my sisters, stopped for lunch, then Aldi, and home to put away groceries. Birdbath looks good in its new home and I will get to visit it. I guess I have had it for 30 years. She didnt want my gnome that went in it so I gave her Ducky.

    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.

    Mona, I have tried to make a list like that, but then I get to feeling stressed out that so much is going undone and it gets me all anxious, which is the opposite of how I want to feel about crochet....so I keep a list of projects I want to make & who they're for (mostly baby gifts), and any dates that they need to be made by instead. At this point, if I don't have the yarn I need for a project, I really should just go to the next project because this stash is getting out of control. I actually can't think of a time I've ever had this much yarn, and now I have people just randomly giving me more! I was given some yarn by my friend's not-quite boyfriend...and it's all good stuff that I will use, in colors I like, so I can't even justify not keeping it....I'll be counting the skeins and seeing how low I'm starting this week out in a bit. On the up side, I've completed one of my really hard classes, and I'm 99% done with a second...two more weeks on the other 2 classes but with these 2 done I should have more time to hook on my hands!! Although I also have to help my mom paint her house this week, so maybe not lol....

    Thank goodness yarn has some give to it. Some things I tried were just a touch snug so I am going to try to loosen up a bit next time. I never played much with dolls and am finding it is tricky getting clothes on those arms. Chris does the bodice with a g hook and the skirt with an h hook to get a little more flair in the skirt. https://craftatticresources.blogspot.com/2018/12/american-girl-little-flamenco-dress.html?m=1 Here is one I am working on. I wasnt fond of the ch 2 dc in next stitch on back and replaced it with a v stitch plus worked it a little looser.

    My coworkers are doing Christmas at the preschool after break. It snuck up on all of us. I took advantage of sales at joann today and bought yarn and buttons to make snow globe ornaments. I will probably bake bread for the breakroom as well.

    Anyone who knows me, knows I love doilies. I use them in the traditional manner. I have many antiques and use them to protect them from scratches. Plus, put them on the back a chair in a color/ or color combination that accents the chair. I have them draped over my good towels in my bathroom on the rod. On the back of my toilet instead of fuzzy cover. Sun catchers in my windows. Draped so part of the doily hangs down on my library shelves. As others have said color can make a big difference. I love my white doilies in certain places, but love using a colorful doily to pull the colors in a room together. I like doilies as pillow fronts also. I use one on a pedastal cake plate for special occasions. In my bread basket. RoseRed was correct there are so many styles these days that you should be able to find something to fit your needs and decor.
