    since I was 8
  1. Thank you so much! I will run these by the group and hopefully we will have a name!
  2. I think that we are planning on making baby blanket for the local hospital and lapghans for a local convalescent home. Also, we are registered with 4-1-1 to give food, clothing and other items to families in need. Pretty much everyone in the group is a beginner. The name of the church is the Waterford Seventh-Day Adventist Church. I hope this additional information helps. I am really at a loss for names that would be appropriate.
  3. My church has asked me to teach a group how to crochet!!! Last Sabbath was our first class and it was so fun! Anyways, we are looking for a group name. I thought an acronym would be fun, but cannot think of any. I appreciate any suggestions!
  4. A tam is a loose fitting hat that you might envision Bob Marley wearing. This website has some great pictures of ones that you could buy: http://www.caribcon.com/hats.html As you can see from the pictures, all of them are crocheted. Here are some websites that have free patterns that will give you the idea: http://www.planetshoup.com/easy/crochet/tamrasta.shtml http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=7158 http://crochetme.com/tags/rasta This seems like a quick and easy project. I hope that you get one finished in time!!!
  5. How lovely! This is a great idea! A great way to spice up a "Gift from a Jar". Do you have a pattern that you follow?
  6. My favorite quick blanket goes like this: Chain multiple of 2 plus 1 Row 1: sc in third chain, *ch 1, sc in second chain* continue til end of chains. Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc in ch 1 space, ch 1, sc in ch 1 space* repeat; sc in last stich. (if that makes any sense) I use a solid yarn and a varigated yarn held together. It always comes out nice, and a simple border finishes it nicely.
  7. Okay, so I have seen posts about these bags and thought that they were great! Now that I see the pattern.... I think that they are even awesome-er than before. This is a perfect "take to work" project and I could finish it in a week. I am going to have to consult the stash and then go shopping to find some yarn to get started. Thanks so much and I look forward to seeing your finished products!
  8. Great bag... another project to my WIM list!!!
  9. You guys rock, but here are some that I have thought of: ...when no one in your house really cares what you are doing, but you feel obliged to either tell them all about your WIMs or complain about your WIPs! ...when you hear about someone having a baby, getting married, losing a loved one, or any other major live event and your first thought is: "What could I make them?" ...when you have a WIP next to everywhere you sit in the house!

    Very pretty. I love that you took the time to make it colored. Where did you get the different colored bags?
  11. That's a great blanket! No one needs to know that it was from your odds and ends stash!!!
  12. This is a great idea.... Can't wait to see the finished product!!!
