  1. Thanx so much for the links!!! The sweaters are gorgeous! I made a coming home from the hospital set for my new Granddaughter and a friend fell in LOVE with it. I love making stuff for people that really 'get it'. I ended up going with this one http://www.justcrochet.com/textured-coat-usa.html for this sweater but now I have a couple more to try.
  2. There are sooooo many beautiful newborn sweater sets for girls. Do you have one for a boy? Those are not as easy to find. Thanx!

    Beginner help needed please :-)

    American and UK use the same name for different stitches. Which would you prefer to learn?

    Made all my Xmas gifts, am not happy :(

    Looks like it's a lesson learned. I think it's happened to most of us at some point.

    Caught a snag! (literally) Help, please.

    If it comes out again after you wash it - a drop of tacky glue will keep it in place.

    What size hook? 175 is four feet and 300 is almost double that.

    Has anyone looked at the link? It's a beautiful scarf! Caron simply soft doesn't have the body to hold that shape unless you want to use a G hook. I would use either Red heart and an H or I hook or Caron Pounder (Natura) with an I or J hook depending on your gauge. All the companies have to do is leave a slightly longer tail in the center. Shouldn't be that hard, right?

    I doubt it's talking about how tightly your balls are wound but the actual twist and spin of the yarn itself. Caron Pounder is a good substitute. It's soft, similar in size and holds up well.
