  5. 7pm. House phone rings. Dont recognize caller initial and last name. Answered. No one there. Dh in shower. I asked him whats Lois last name? After his response I told him she might have called on house phone. He called back. She wanted to know if its going to storm tonight.
  6. Ravelry is my go to search for patterns. Besides afghans you can search for scarves, shawls, baby afghan, etc for stitch ideas that can often easily made larger for an afghan
  7. Wonderful use! Love it when you can put things to use instead of putting in the trash.
  8. I think its probably the same sort of thing. I was amazed at all they would do---write letters, wrap packages, grocery shopping, run errands, cook, play games, listen, transport you, laundry, etc. There is an hourly fee for reg hours, off hours, and holiday. Good thing is if we should need it since we did an entrance fee we would get 50 % off. Like dh said they get money for walking dogs all he gets is a bag of poop. He just came back and was excited Millie did her job next to the poop deposit place. Then said what does that say when you are excited about that. They are asking for volunt

    You often find "repeat x amount of times" following a series of stitches within [ ] or ( ) You do the set of stitches within them and in your case do the set two more times. https://www.craftyarncouncil.com/standards/how-to-read-crochet-pattern
  10. The problem is that the ch 3 can leave a gap because its not as bulky as a real stitch and some people really hate that gap. They have come up with various work arounds and in doing some of the work arounds is when I have seen to not count a ch2 or 3 as a stitch but the patterns explained what to do.
  11. Study the chart listing the various stitches like Using sc the ch 1 turning stitch does not count as a stitch Using dc the ch 3 pretty much always counts as a stitch There are always exceptions to the rules and the pattern should tell you
  12. Dark is harder for me. I have to use my readers working on it at night. You might find this helpful. I am also not good at large afghans. I am better with doll blankets, lapghans, shawls, scarves or smaller afghans (40x60 inches) granny square join as you go. When working with fuzzy yarn I use at least a K hook double crochet and after first row I work between the stitches. And I only do scarves with it working widthwise so not many stitches to keep track of. I have better luck using it to make scarves on my knifty knitter long loom.
  13. You should have 56 sc if you chained 57 and started in second ch from hook and didnt miss working into a chain. I despise working with chunky fuzzy yarn because its hard to see where to make your stitches and its often hard to pull it out to start over. If you can pull it out it often damages the yarn. Make sure you count your stitches in each and every row. My problem is I seem to always mess up counting my chains if its much past 20 so I always make a few extra, make the number of stitches I need and undo the extra chains.
  14. Dance away and kuddos to you! I can work with two strands but have never mastered 3. I tried the bird nests a few times and failed miserably at getting all three strands picked up and pulled thru.
