    Just The Way I Like 'em Dishcloth

    I just found this thread even though it was posted some time ago. I hesitantly tried the pattern and was so pleasantly excited as it really worked. It's very absorbent!!! I have tried so many stitches, combination of stitches in the past and many different types of fibers and this works. I used this cloth on all kinds of surfaces and there were no streaks left on any of them...including a glass top table. Thank you for this pattern. I used Hobby Lobby I Love This Cotton.

    Stained Glass Window Afghan

    Beautiful!!! I have this pattern but have hesitated in beginning as it seems that there will be a lot of ends to weave and it's a bit more difficult. Did you find this to be true?
  3. Depends on what I am crocheting and where I'm at when ends are ready to be weaved in. I enjoy weaving in ends and find it relaxing! I usually weave a few when I am crocheting and leave some for the finished piece.

    Just want to vent...

    Such a good question and good advise...I always work on one or more and sometimes way more projects then I should so I do just change to another project but one biggest factor that has changed my crocheting, including; speed, tension, hand pain and consequently enjoy-ability is I changed out all my hooks to the bamboo handled. When the soft clover hooks came out I really liked them but picked one up one day and my hands were hurting in no time. I am left handed but don't think that really has anything to do with it. Love the bamboo hooks, they have made a big difference in my Crochet Life~~~

    Orange you nice :)

    Your Tunic Is Beautiful!!! Our school colors are orange and black & our GrDaughters favorite holiday is Halloween and we just found out our DD and SIL will be having twins in October so we bought them some bright colored orange bibs When I looked Tango Tangerine up on the Internet it looks like it is a very much prettier version then the bolder orange~~~I like it! Don't know if I will be able to carry it off in a piece of clothing but would love to change out my old pink wallet for a Tango Tangerine one!!!

    2012 Wip-Busters

    Would love to join this WIP Cal~~~I always have very good intentions & the beginning of 2012 has started out with a positive...picked up an afghan I have been working on for some time now. I crocheted a twin to this one and perhaps that is the reason I am having a slower time getting this one done~~~same color***same stitch The 2nd. thing I need to get done is a hook case "I have almost done"...is felted already and just needs the finishing touches. (for me) A flower for a hair wrap (ear warmer). (for daughter in-law) After these I will dig out some more that are hiding around here :) Point system...huhmmmm Thank you so much for starting this CAL now off to crochet~!~
