    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.)

    My new Double-Filet crochet wall hanging, I'm pretty addicted to this technique. This is my own design. It was so fun to watch it come together!

    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.

    Bzybee on Ravelry My favorite color is blue. I seem to be drawn to pumpkins, snowpeople, bees, gnomes, cardinals, and hummingbirds 1. Mail me a card, any type (holiday, birthday is June 3, postcard from your travels or from where you live). Its even better if you add a note. I cant begin to tell you how much they brighten my day. 2. Garden flags (12 x 18 inches) any holiday, any season, pretty much anything. I have two poles and they are changed out each month. 3. Small things to sit on window ledges, shelves, hang from window latches, door knobs, or curtain rods. I change them out for seasons and holidays. 4. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/christmas-bunting---granny-style 5. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/american-girl-18-inch-doll-wrap-style-dress 6. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/doll-clothes-wedding-dress 7. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/garden-fairy-flower-pot-doll 8. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dandelion-lane 9. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/jurassic-playset 10. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/priscilla-the-ballerina-piggy

    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

    Here is a toddler size blanket....yarn purchased by my friend. The Patchwork Heart site inspires me... And a firetruck graph ghan....crib size, for my veterinarian, who is amazing! I made her a different, girlie one three years ago before she had her DD. Sorry, but not allowed to share the patterns....

    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.

    My mom's cat would sit next to her and go after her knitting needles. When I was , he couldn't get my hook because it was too short. So he knocked my other hooks on the floor and started flinging them around. Ellie 13

    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.

    Judy enjoyed the picture. Cindy I hope your mil starts doing better. I dont know how social she was before this but I can see myself doing what she is doing as I have isolation tendencies. I was painfully shy as a child. Tues we had rain, flash freezing that night and then a touch of snow on top. Wed we had the first sunshine we had seen in 10 days. We are looking at a few bitterly cold days down to around 0. I have made and made and mailed off a couple of shawls. Both were made with Lion Brand Mandala yarn.

    Here are some dollar store towels transformed using this double layered towel topper pattern. You just fold over the towel and crochet the towel topper onto the top without sewing or cutting. The jingle bells were also from the dollar store. I crocheted these for our local nursing home fundraiser this week.

    I always miss my dogs too when on vacation. We don't get to go very often, last time was when my 9 year old was 4. We are going camping for the first time this weekend. I am really excited as we are taking 2 of the dogs; we have 7. We will have to go back home a couple times a day to let the dogs out but I still think it will be fun. Yes, I answer a phone here at work. I HATE talking on the phone. I don't do it much at home, thankfully, Mr Tribble does the phone stuff for me cause he knows how much I hate it. I don't mind texting though, but don't have my phone on me constantly so there is normally a delay in the texting. I do take my phone if I think I am going to want to take pictures, as that is the camera I use now. I used to use a real camera and then smart phones came out and it's just so much easier. I'm happy with the quality, I don't need professional pictures. LOL. I don't pay any attention to whats going on, if I need to know, Mr Tribble keeps me informed. I too prefer to remain in my own little magick bubble. I have always wanted to go to a comic con but they are always so expensive! One of these days maybe and I will for sure dress up as a mash up character. LOL Adorable ears!!! Just working on small projects lately. I made a handle cover for one of my favorite bags because one of my lovely pooches decided to chew on the original one and it didn't look too pleasant. Made a bow for another bag to cover a chew area, still have to attach that one, but think it will look cute. getting ready to start a pillow cover in camo and orange for Mr Tribble's pillow and going to make the heating pad I pack to work a cotton cover. I'm sad that summer is coming to an end. I was off for six days in a row last month and we were in our pool every day! Was lovely. Little Tribble thinks he's a fish now that he can swim. He is starting 4th grade this year. I'm not sure where the time went. I sure don't seem to have accomplished much in that amount of time. I've been making and trading artist trading cards this summer, but was missing my crochet so finished up one WIP and still have many more to go that I have started and not finished. I also started a journal but as usual, just can't seem to keep up with it. But still putting in a day here and there. I don't time manage very well. lol. Have a good night all!

    We put off the sleepover until tonight. I'll have all three for a while then DIL will pick up the GS. I had a pretty productive afternoon. Washed 3 loads of sheets/towels, remade 2 beds, got the futon mattress that the girls sleep on out and made up (all our beds are tall, so they sleep on it on the floor), paid a bill and balanced the checkbooks, and joined the 4 squares of one of the petal lap throws. I hope to get the other squares joined this afternoon, then I'll just have 4 rounds of dc around each throw. It's another hot one here today.

    Welcome back! All the details are in the first post of the thread, but here's the short version. Since it's all about using up your stash, getting yarn (buying, being given it, finding it on your front doorstep) is negative...-2 for each skein. When you use up a skein (crocheting, any crafting, give it away, dog ate it) it's positive...+2 for each skein. You start with 0 and post your score for the week each Saturday.

    Hi everyone! I did buy 2 skeins this week (-4) but then I worked my fingers raw and finished the Sons of Anarchy graphgan for my bonus son! Used up 3 skeins and then balled 7 (+13). This blanket is 4 ft 9 in wide by 6 ft 4 in tall...and he's 6 ft 2, so it should actually cover him! Now basically my entire household is sick AND I've got a new semester starting on Monday, so I'm not honestly sure how much I'll be able to do in this next week. I'm hoping to get a good dent in the Elmo graphgan for my youngest grandson. We'll see lol WTD: +9 YTD: +38 I'll be posting the scores for the group around lunchtime tomorrow ♡

    I am a new Grandmother of a boy and a girl. My favorite thing to do is crochet for them. Yesterday I made a gingerbread hat for my 2 month old grandson. I was taught the basics as a child, from my mother who taught herself by watching her mother in law. From there I am self taught and have been crocheting for at least 40 yrs. Until recently, I have not used many patterns. I learn something new everyday and am excited to get to know everyone here! Posting a photo of the hat I made for my grandson yesterday:

    Happy Monday, everyone. Cindy ~ Keeping fingers crossed that your MIL shows some improvement. You've done so well with your shopping! I only have one thing each for Luke and Zach and have no idea what to get for the few others we exchange gifts with. Judy ~ I love your new avatar. ♥♥♥ With the lovely yarn colors, whatever you decide will be great! Brenda ~ Yes, that pattern works up really nice...I think it would be great for scarves, too. Have you had more snow? We had a few flurries Saturday night, but nothing stayed on the ground. Well, DH sprained his left ankle Friday so he is not a happy camper. I called and spoke with our doctor's PA and she recommended the usual ice, elevation and ace bandage wrap for a few days. It's slightly swollen with just a little bruising. It's amazing how he walks more normal when he doesn't know I'm watching. I think I am going to crochet this afternoon...it's been a few days and I'm ready! Have a good afternoon, all.

    Good morning, House. Brenda ~ It sounds like winter is on its way! I used to love seeing the green tomatoes ripen on the window ledge. One year we had fresh ripe tomatoes at Thanksgiving time. Hubby loves fried green tomatoes, so I used to use some for that. Such good news about your sister. ♥ Cindy ~ I hope you're having a quiet, relaxing weekend. I spent part of yesterday cleaning upstairs and rearranging my sewing room. Hmm, wonder who bought all that yarn! Lol I have two bags to donate to the senior center this week. Most of it is full skeins of RHSS that I've had for a long time. It feels scratchy to me, but I know a lot of people love using it. We had almost 4" of rain in about 4 hours yesterday. A cold front is coming this evening with another 5-7 inches expected by Tuesday and wind chills in the upper 20's! Yikes! I have a dental app't tomorrow a.m. but will stay home if there is flooding in Fort Worth like there was yesterday. 'Hope my newly planted pansies make it! We're meeting our friends for brunch and then we'll go to the store. Have a great Sunday, friends.
