  • Crocheting since...
    My grandmother taught me to crochet in 1974.
  1. Shellie, It can be any yarn you have to use...I am making one with a "Magic Ball" of all small scraps that I got in an ebay auction a long time ago. most were maybe 10 yds at most...it is making a "joseph's technicolor" afghan...I love it but will have to dig it out of the ufo closet to show you all.
  2. I am in, as soon as I finish a couple of shawls...soon I hope. I have a lot of simply soft that would work nicely for this pattern.
  3. I have one more strip to connect and then the border to do and I can't seem to pick it up and finish...(i am one of those crocheters too) I think they call it finishitis. I am also working on a diagonal afghan in Herrschners chenille, offwhite, burgandy and forest green for my son (he wants it 5 1/2 feet WIDE) and a rr in Vanna's choice in autumn colors off set with taupe. (only three or four rounds into it though.) and about a Hundred other pigs...that will some day become FO. or be frogged. GOTTA ORGANIZE!!!!
  4. I had never seen that one before. I will try that for my next mam. thanks
  5. I have used "marges method" in one or two other afghans. One with strips of chenille for a friend and another with squares for bf. I love it.
  6. No kidding... that is why I learned to embroider...so I could put my name (spelled "correctly") on my jean jacket in High School... Ahhhh! the eighties.
  7. Bernat Baby Coordinates two strands held together, the center of the strip is plain white with Sweet stripes, blue and white, the outer rounds are white and Sweet Stripes blue and green. I plan to connect them with this method: http://www.angelfire.com/wv/happyghan/margemethod.html using either two strands of the blue/green or one blue/green and one blue/white. not sure yet.
  8. three strips done. five inches by 36 inches each. hopefully will find camera tonight and take pics.
  9. I have two strips complete and the insides for 4 more done, I will take pics when I get home from work, (and measure them). I ended up doing one strand of Bernat Coordinates Stripes with one strand of Bernat Coordinates in plain white and came up with my own simple pattern for a mam.
  10. I absolutely love your color combo....I was kinda lurking, and thinking about jumping in here (but only thinking) until I saw your pics...(the others are beautiful as well but this one grabbed me) I AM IN!!! I will pic colors when I get home from work...
  11. I have a couple of shawls going at the moment but more projects don't hurt...I will see if my enormous stash has any yarn that jumps out at me for this or if I should go across the street from work tomorrow to the LYS and pick up something yummy.
  12. I am currently making a Seraphina in simply soft paints, the spring brook colorway and Lion Brand's Very Easy Ripple Shawl in a hand-dyed yarn I bought on Etsy.com...I will post pics when I am done.
  13. try this easy ripple pattern http://home.att.net/~susanBinKC/patterns/ripple.html It is a good first ripple project.
  14. sorry joyce, I'll ignore the first post, everything else is great...thanks for taking over so we can all continue to be helped to finish those projects that seem to take forever... at least mine seem to. I just spent the last three weeks covering for my employees vacations so crochet time has been limited to say the least...now I have semi recovered enough to see I have a lot to do. ugh!
