  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!
  3. American and UK use the same name for different stitches. Which would you prefer to learn?
  4. Looks like it's a lesson learned. I think it's happened to most of us at some point.
  5. If it comes out again after you wash it - a drop of tacky glue will keep it in place.
  6. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE when you share your Work. Another stunning collection! Just beautiful!
  7. You can get a similar look with tunisian, too.
  8. Your work is amazing. You are such an ispiration!
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. There's an older thread here that has pages and pages of them. I just can't remember what it's called.
  12. I never add white as an edging. It gets dirty too fast.
  13. Once I get back into crocheting full swing again - he'll learn
  14. Actually, it was the whole store in general. They had a few 'top end' yarns but they had very nice quality and reasonable prices. I can't justify paying $80 for a 2 ounce skein. $4 or 5 I can do for a special occasion. The yarn that did it is on the top shelf on the left. They had a gorgeous sample worked up in it. Really helpful, right? LOL
  15. Exactly! He'll get used to it. I thought it was funny and just had to share with people that understand. I love you guys!
  16. Exactly, right?!? LOL I haven't had time to crochet much in the last couple years. He'll get used to it and by gandchild will have the softest blankie I've ever made.
  17. So, I found an LYS quite by accident. They're prices are reasonable, the people are very sweet, they welcome crocheters and they have beautiful yarn. I was soooooo excited to find such a great place and told my Beloved about it when we got home. He did the bored 'that's nice, dear' thing. The next day he tells me I have so much yarn in the attic that I should use that up first. :rofl :rofl I tried to explain that it's my first grandchild and the yarn at the store is special and soft and beautiful and lovely and oh, such a yarn-gasm. He just didn't get it. :rofl :rofl
  18. I tested one of Kathy's rose stoles with the scallops across the bottom for my last wedding. It needed to be starched. There are different levels of starching from giving a little body and holding the shape to crispy. I laid towels out on the floor and pinned it right into the carpet. It was about 5 1/2 long and more than a foot wide.
  19. There's no way you're going to get those edges nice and crisp without pins. Especially, if you put the beads on it. I would hand wash it, starch it in hot water and powdered starch if you can find it, pin it out and let dry and then iron to lock the stitches into place. My grandmother would pull out the doily sets every spring. We'd have to wash and starch them all. She loved the oldest ones that were well ironed best because they just hold their shape.
