  1. I'm no thread expert. I think someone who knows more than me will come along with an answer. But once I did a thread project with baby blue and black. After completing the project, I rinsed and rinsed and rinsed (the black was bleeding) under lukewarm water until the water ran clear. But my item was not starched. You could try to rinse them thoroughly until all the red comes out and then re-starch them. I don't know if it's too late now that they've bled and dried.

  5. Hi @Michaela, welcome to Crochetville! I'm so glad you've joined us. I learned to crochet at about the same age you did; I was 8 years old. I think freeform crochet is so lovely, but I'm not very good at it. I look forward to seeing some of your projects!

  7. This is called the jasmine crochet stitch. This basket on YouTube looks like it may be the one: https://youtu.be/iGiHQ1X8-j4

    Pokemon fans?

    My son never got into Pokémon but his friends in school were into it. Yours are so well done!
  9. Brenda, I agree, the recently used section is very convenient. They have made some big strides in improving the mobile version. I have a few like this guy and this one that I have memorized the shortcut text for and I just type it in like this: :yes :welcome Of course that is probably only convenient on desktop, not mobile.
  10. Do you have any more details, like a web site or contact person? Or should interested crocheters just reply here in this topic?
  11. What a cutie! This is very nicely done.
  12. My goodness, I got a laugh out of this! Probably because it is so true about so many things.

  14. Mary Jo, all the old emoticons are still there. You have to scroll down past the default ones to get to our old ones. I just scroll down really fast to get to the bottom of all the emoticons. Also, once you have used the ones you like, they will be at the top in "Recently Used." At the bottom of all the "Emoji", our old emoticons: At the top, "Recently Used":
  15. @Inkked0317 Jessie, I'm in New Bern!

  17. @katyallen8090 Thank you, Katy! I’m already back. I did post one pic of a granny square afghan I saw on a pedi taxi. Haven’t posted anything else. What would you like to see?
  18. @Inkked0317 Jessie, you can post the boobs. If kids don't know that boobs are for breastfeeding, there is something wrong with this world. BTW, awesome Wonder Woman shawl!
  19. The daisy towel holder looks great! Really matches your towel. I really like the idea of using a hair tie in stead of a rigid ring.
  20. Oh, that's so clever! Bright and cheery. The dark pillow insert looks good in it.
  21. Since activity is picking up, there may be other members (returning old members, new members just joining the forum) who have interest and want squares. It will take some time to build up momentum, but that day may come and a different squares CAL could be started. I love that folks have become such great friends in this CAL and continue to check in.
  22. Ooh, I just thought of something! For your next afghan. Everybody hates color changes. I probably shouldn't speak for everybody, but, well... Anyhow, since you're fairly new to crocheting and you don't have a lot of time to dedicate to it, a single-color afghan can be a bit easier. That way, if you end up having to rip out rows, you're not also fighting color changes and possibly not having enough yarn when you re-use each color section of yarn you've ripped out. I love the look of the stripes of color in this afghan, but it's another thing that can be a pain. If you get a few solid-color afghans under your belt, you'll reduce frustration and probably start feeling more relaxed with your gauge.
  23. Oooh, that's a great idea!
