  1. Would Pipsqueak yarn be appropriate for a larger afghan. Perhaps 40 inches wide?

  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. Entirely Awesome...Great Thumbs-Up for Crocheting!!!
  7. So Beautiful~~~Much Luck~~~Have Fun At The Fair!!!
  8. 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~~~
  9. 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!!!
  10. Awesome....my sister would live it...her favorite colors....and the size is wonderful...congrats!!!!
  11. I'd like to join...love making afghans and have a couple of smaller lapghans going for charity, one with homespun for ourselves (believe it!!!), one I am finishing up for my niece and I will have one done by this weekend ( if the yarn gets here by Fed_Ex on Wed) for oldest GDaughter! It is a very colorful yarn, Patons Melody and a speedy V-Stitch...will try to post pic a little later!!! Boy, I need this CAL :)
  12. I'd like to join~~~ Crochet small lapghans and then purchase stuffed animals and snuggle them up for Parent/Child Center. My goal is to get started crocheting Prayer Shawls this year! So glad this CAL started
  13. So Sorry~~~~It was about the Cathedral Window CAL Group on Facebook~~~Starting off 2012 with a Bang!!! Thank you Ladies and Happy New Year!
  14. Got a message on FB to come and check in if I still want to be involved in this CAL or I will be dropped...Sure want to be a part of this CAL...please don't drop me
  15. 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~!~
  16. 1. I am organized and plan my projects, buy yarn and plenty of it so as not to run out for that project and have to spend extra on gas to run after more. 2. I am thrifty and buy lots of yarn on sale so as not to have to pay full price when a project comes to mind. 3. I believe thinking ahead (buying~buying~buying) is the key when dealing with a serious yarn addiction
  17. Bobi Very Gorgeous!!! I have the pattern and I want to make it for DH and I...We have one small afghan out of all I've made. Love this pattern! Beautifully Done
  18. Welcome!!! and Hello from Nebraska~~~~
  19. Very nice....I made the same pattern for our granddaughters! Was my first baby pattern!
  20. Hello Again, Have not been here in a long time! # 1~~I have never been able to choose that ONE project :o) and have been carrying many pounds of fluid (Dr says probably around 15) and they can't figure out why so it has been hard to look realistically at my over-weightness! I actually weigh 3 lbs. less then when we started this so all is not lost. Trying to eat an apple a day, with cinnamon I do better! And also a grapefruit a day! And a protein drink with strawberries and sometime blueberries. If I am good and get these things done~~~This Can Be Do-Able :o)
  21. Congrats is in order first....and oh the tiredness became quite boring to say the least. I too was the only one crocheting for our babies but it did make it all the more special. By the time the Grands came some of my other family crocheted. I started with a bib. It was fast and I felt an accomplishment quickly which I needed about then. Baby Blessings To You~~~
  22. Awesome~~~~Just Mighty Awesome!!!
