A Few Things About Me

  • Real name
  • Short bio
    When I am not crafting, I enjoy caring for my children and spending time with my Christian friends.
  • Location
    Indianapolis area
  • Hobbies
    I also love working on and teaching off-loom beadweaving, knitting, and rubber stamping.
  • Occupation
    I'm a mom of 4 kids--ages 12, 10, 6 and 12 months
  • Favorite hook type
  • Favorite projects
    I make lots of baby blankets because I always seem to know someone who is expecting. I also like to do full-sized afghans.
  • Crocheting since...
    A family friend taught me how to crochet in about 1988 and it has been one of my passions.
  1. I'm visiting here tonight because of the nice little "Happy Birthday" email I just received from the Crochetville community. It looks like the last time I was here was on June 8, 2007! My primary crafting passion these days is with rubber stamping, but I still squeeze in a few hours per month to work on a crochet project. I can't wait to check out the how-to videos and other new features on this site! Lisa
  2. Thanks so kindly, Busy Bee! What a speedy reply! Those are great directions--better than my old set.
  3. Does anyone know where I can find the free pattern for the magic square potholder? I used to make so many of these that I knew the pattern by heart. Now I would like to make a few and can't find my old pattern. I went to Martha's StarGazer site, but when I click on the link, it comes up as "page not found".
  4. What types of items seem to be popular? Where they all your original designs or does that matter?
  5. I'm getting ready to start on a full-sized fisherman style afghan. I've always thought it might be fun to enter a crocheted blanket into my local state fair (Indiana State Fair). Is there anyone who has done this and can give me any suggestions?
  6. MY mother does not crochet(yes,I've offered to teach her many times), but she does lots of knitting. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good knitting forum. I already know about About.com, just wondering if there is anything as wonderful as Crochetville for knitters.
  7. No, It just had full-sized afghans with lots of great stitches that were worked in one piece. Instead of strips that get sewn together at the end.
  8. I would love to find/buy a pattern for crocheted fisherman style afghans. I had a book that I lost years ago when my basement flooded. I think it was a Leisure Arts leaflet, but I'm not sure. I loved these patterns because they included lots of interesting pattern stitches and they were worked in one solid piece. The only fisherman style patterns I have seen since are worked in strips and pieced together at the end. Yuck! I can't stand that! What is the point of doing all that work and then having to piece all the strips together. I still have 2 of these afghans in my home and they are wonderful. I tried contacting the Leisure Arts company, but that came up empty. I'm really dating myself here, but I would guess that the book was out around 1992. Hoping for some help, Lisa
  9. Hello, I feel like I just hit the jackpot! I can't believe that I have just now found this website. I live in the Indianapolis area. I have 4 kids that are 12, 10, 6, and 12 months old. I was taught to crochet by a family friend at the age of 18. It is like therapy for me--it is so relaxing. I also like knitting, stamping, and beadwork. I make a lot of baby blankets and hats because I usually always know a few expecting moms. I am currently working on setting up a shop on Etsy.com. The merchandise isn't a problem--it's figuring out shipping charges, photos, etc. Well, now I am off to another section to ask about a fisherman afghan pattern. Go Colts! Lisa
