    1st learned in 60's but only picked it back up last year
  1. anyone out there joined in?? omg...lucy of the attic SO SO SO inspires me!! I love all the gorgeous mandalas she has made and received... im practicing with several patterns...if you have any easy ones to share..id be grateful as always!! hugs
  2. when I say working in the round...im referring to making things like mandalas where the colors change every row or so...ive searched and searched online tutorials, but none seem to show me what I want. after I complete 1 round....slip stitch with same color WHERE??? then...to change a color. start new color with slip knot and start where?? do these questions make sense?? its hard to ask crochet questions when what I really really need is a warm body right beside me..then I could get it.. any idea of pointing me in the right direction??
  3. can you clarify on the pattern??
  4. i received approx. 40 skeins of Stylecraft DK yarn (type Lucy of the Attic used) . it is delicious but i did not realize it was a "thinner" type yarn...yes, perfect for many projects...however, for my liking i HAVE to use thicker...if anyone would like some or all please let me know. i will certainly give you an major discounted price!!

    drivin me NUTS!

    for almost 2+ years ive struggled with crocheting in the round. yes...looked at tons of websites, tutorials, etc...BUT just cant get the part when it says to JOIN rounds??? ok...do u join under 1 loop of top chain...both loops....or go to next full stitch to join??? i absolutely despise that "obvious" seam line! i need some hands on crocheters for help! there has to be some general rule of thumb with this process. thanks thanks...hugs hugs
