    2014 Afghans for NICU babies for Christmas - Delivered!

    I love seeing all the blankets. I love the FB page too. Kathryn got me going on the fleece edging and I have been loving it. I bought fleece on sale and have enough for about 28 blankets. I'm having fun edging them all.

    BICO with baby yarn

    I've made BICO's with Lion Brand Homespun and would like to make a baby BICO using Bernat Baby Coordinates. Do I use the same amount of stitches? How do I make it the right size? It seems as though if I use a smaller yarn, that the sweater will be smaller. I plan on using a J hook and I did a sample and it looks ok. Can anyone help? Thanks!!

    learning granny square/crochet in the round

    Once you get the hang of a granny, it will be easy. For years I could NOT make a granny square. My aunt showed me, diagrammed it for me and I still couldn't do it. A few years ago, I sat down with a pattern and lo and behold I made my first ever granny square!! Look at the tutorials posted here and stick with it. Then let us know when you have done it!!

    I have several afghans made. I am not crochetting as much as normal since I am going to school, but I hope to get a full box to you this summer!!

    What is your niche?

    I mostly crochet for charity. I make baby afghans (full size and preemie) and I make a lot of prayer shawls. I like to make cotton dish/wash cloths too.

    Where is the cheapest place to get yarn?

    Joann's just had a 25% off sale and I bought some yarn. Also, I have made afghans for people and felt so used. People that don't crochet do not realize how much yarn costs, plus the time and effort we put in to a project. I think non crocheters think we can just whip something up in no time at all. I started charging people the cost of the yarn, or I ask them to purchase the yarn for the project and tell them what to buy and how much to buy.
  18. Kathryn, I've been praying for your dad too. And for you!! Can't wait to see the pics and totals! Take care of your foot.

    hot pad versus pot holder

    I use hot pads and pot holders interchangeably. The very first cotton dishcloths I made, I made so tightly, with an "F" hook I think, the most of the people I gave them to used them for hot pads! lol

    skip stitch blade/edgerydoo

    Could any of you ladies explain to me what the difference is with these two tools?? Do they both do the same job or what?? I think I would like to put edges on flannel or fleece and want to know the best way to makes holes in the edges. Thanks for your help!!

    I got a yarn winder

    And I love it!! It makes all my leftover yarn into neat little balls. Now I don't have yarn ends laying around everywhere!! I bought the one from Knit picks!!! Great price and it works well.
