  1. I use the same method as the invisible decrease. You crochet into the front loop of the stitch you are changing the color, do you change and then proceed to the next stitch. I don't have a video on this, but I find this, especially in amigurumis'. I find this much better and less bulky. I am sure Grannysquares and them will be in to give you more ideas.
  2. Beautiful day today. Temp is 65 and no humidity, can you imagine? We are told not to get use to it, as the humidity will be back tomorrow. Back to August weather. Off in a few, thought I would drop in and say Hi. Sandra, I will check my stash.
  3. Ok, I was joking, because I would have to take DH also. Hot and humid today. So humid, that the windows are steamed up.
  4. You do not realize how much junk you collect till you have to move. I have decided that I am going to do it like my folks. I am only taking my cloths and crochet stuff. Otherwise, I am closing and locking the door. Good morning, off to the clinic. Looking forward to tomorrow for NO humidity and cooler temps for ONE day.
  5. Hi, done with the clinic for today. Tried to get a flu shot, but they did not have the Senior dose in stock. Have to wait till later in the week. Cloudy with a chance of rain, no sun. Working on a new baby blanket. Have fun.
  6. Welcome to Crocetville. It is always nice to meet new people. You might want to post your request to Crochet for Charity. You might also ask for crocheted scarfs. Here is the area to post your request. https://forum.crochetville.com/forum/14-crochet-for-charity/
  7. Good Morning. Off to the clinic today. Looking at scattered showers all day. Have fun.
  8. Lea so sorry for your loss. My heart and prayers are with you and your family. Brenda, I would of pulled the bush out. Dh is lucky you only cut it back. I had a graph I wanted to do for a blanket for my SIL's new granddaughter. Well, it turns out that when you print it out the background is dark blue. Now the picture is of a baby deer laying down with a butter fly on his butt. It is adorable. But the background is dark blue (in the picture it is light blue), the deer is dark brown and is outlined in black. I can't see where the blue ends and the black starts. There is also one with an elephant and it is the same problem. I contacted the people I bought it from and they could not help me. They would not even contact the designer to see if there is another graph that could be sent. So I have a graph pattern book, that I can only make 2 of the 4 graphs. It is called Color Change Baby Blanket. So I found another to make. The sun is not up yet, but I am. Off to my corner. Have a fun day.
  9. Nah, all the wheels were on the sidewalk. She was really cool looking. Still raining here. Suppose to be cleared up by tomorrow.
  10. Good Morning. Looks like our rain has let up. The surge was not as bad as they thought it would be. They did have a tornado pass over I-4 last night near Lakeland. The panhandle should be getting hit today. Not much going on today. Going to take it easy. Just washing the sheets then relaxing. Have a good day.
  11. You think that is bad, I saw a movie (Tomorrowland) and they played "It's a Small World". Try having that in your head all day. Wow Brenda you are really busy. Soon it will all be over and you can relax and watch some football. I nearly had hart palpations when Mahoney went down. Hope it is not as bad as they thing. Waiting for some storms to run thru and the storm surge they are worried about. The big mess will be in the panhandle, Louisiana, Georgia and Alabama. This storm is something else. Not suppose to be a hurricane, but will cause a lot of rain and storm surge on our side.
  12. Thank you all. When I can, I am going to make the pineapple and melting snowman.
  13. Pammy is very, very shy. She hides in her pumpkin and will only come out to say Hi. I love this pattern. I got it from My Creative blog on Ravelry I have made the bee hive and now the pumpkin. Here is Pammy Hiding and on full display. She will be leaving soon for her new home.
  14. No it is 15 sessions of radiation. Tampa Guy has had to have radiation treatment and it was a total of 30. He is 1/2 way thru. Yeah I am also trying not to buy yarn, but sometimes it just can't be helped.
  15. lyn that use to happen to me, but it would happen as soon as I get on the phone. Back from the clinic. 15 down and 15 to go. Just waiting for my yarn to be delivered now. Sun is out and shinning. Have fun.
  16. Hi Welcome to Crochetville from the Gulf Coast of Florida. Grab your yarn and hooks, put your feet up and sit a spell. We are always so glad to meet new friends. Beautiful dress. You might want to ask in the General Crochet Help section. I am not good when it comes to clothing. Mine is either to big or to small.
  17. Good Morning. Beautiful day today. I forgot to tell you about what I saw yesterday when we were coming home. We were riding up the street and I looked over to see a woman on a bike dressed up like a witch. She had a broom sticking out the back, making it look like she was riding a broom. Her dress and hat had had some filmy material on it so that when the wind blew, it was floating. It was really cool. Her bike had a basket on the front, like the witch in the Wizard of Oz. It was so cool looking. Today my yarn is coming, so I can get started on an afghan for my SIL. Well, must get ready for the trip to the clinic. Have a fun day.
  18. Just looked thru my Mary Maxim catalogue and saw on the back, that they have some Red Heart Super Saver on Sale. It is a 7 ounce skein for $1.99. They are discontinued colors. Sounds like what they did when PNC was sold to Yarnspiritations. https://www.marymaxim.com/red-heart-super-saver-discontinued-yarn-colors.html

  20. Good Morning. Well it is Hump Day. I have not used that term in a long time. Cloudy and warm today. I hear you all in the Northeast, are expecting a nor'easter. Take care with that. Well, off to the clinic. Have a great day.
  21. Love the scarecrow scarf. That is really cool. Your daughter is beautiful and she looks great. I love the fact that everyone can go to these parties with or without a date. Sorry to hear you were sick, but so glad to hear you are feeling better.
  22. What color is that yarn? Love the way it turned out.
  23. Very cool. Love the colors.
  24. So pretty. Love the color and stitch.
