    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.

    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".

    Diana: Very cute . I like your photo too with him guarding the candle. LOL Krys: Yours is a cutie also. Good idea on weighting him on his bottom. Slipping off the shelf would make everyone think he had one too many wódka! LOL 😄

    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.

    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.

    Mary Jo when sis and I were living together dad gave us his older kitchenaid when he got a bigger model. I dont think sis really wanted it but I did. She grumbled that it was so heavy and took up too much room but when I moved out she would not let me take it. If you make cookies or bread it is a must. (I cant imagine mixing those by hand anymore.) If not they take up counterspace and are so heavy you dont want to lift them in and out of a cabinet. Were these the baskets you made a year ago and then they did not do the sale because of different person in charge or was that another thing? Yesterday we hauled more pavers to my niece, hauled a lot of things to the thrift store, and had several big bags of trash ready to go. Dh had an appointment to get suv serviced this morning. The garage is less than 5 minutes from new place so we unloaded things and he went on over while I am doing laundry at new place. Will have lunch at the grill here-----gotta use that dining credit.

    Hello everyone! I hope you are all staying cool and enjoying the summer. I am just back from my mother's and a solo road trip for the last few weeks, and feel so much better for having taken a week to myself. Things are busy here, in a good way, and we are readying the rig for our vacation at the end of the week. I got no crocheting done while gone; I just seem to lose my mojo during the summer. Part of the reason for the road trip was to drop my dog off at my mom's so he would be well taken care of while we're on vacation. I'm just as unhappy as he is and would like to whine for a second: I miss my dog!!! What's everyone up to? I skimmed several posts and it sounds like gardens are producing well, grandchildren are kicking butts, and life continues to move forward.

    I designed these straps several months back when I made one for myself for my lunch box to dangle at work in the back of the van off a cargo net... This keeps other people from piling their luggage on top of my lunch box.... I made this set for my fiance back east to use for various things.... while camping or in the car to keep things up off the floor or to keep them from moving around tha car.... I also made a keychain to match as well as some cord detanglers all with a color scheme just a quick little gift....
