  1. Thank you so much for the advice, I was excited about doing the pattern and didn't take the time ti do a gauge swatch. I'll know better now.
  2. I forgot to post my pic. Here is my sweater.
  3. It's very easy to work with and they have great colors.
  4. I just bought this book by Carla Simms and crocheted the basic sweater pattern, but it didn't come out right. The back is too wide and the sides are too long. I followed it line by line and don't understand what I did wrong. Any suggestions would be appreciated

  6. Your scarves are so pretty...I especially love the granny square looking one....I would love to get the pattern for that...
  7. Love it. Dishcloths are my favorite thing to make. Yours is beautiful.
  8. My mom and I are wanting to start making things for craft shows also, but I'm always confused about what price to ask for things. Any guidlines for pricing?
  9. I discovered these hooks at HL about a year ago and are my needle of choice now. I've tried using bates hooks before but was never impressed with them. Always used boye. But I absolutely loveeeeee the aluminum bates hook with the bamboo handles. I crochet a little too tight and these have made my stitches a little looser also.
  10. Alchemyfyr......I recienved my package and I cant thank you enough for all the beautiful things you sent. Here is a list. A beautiful shawl A very soft scarf 2 dishcloths Some note card (so beautiful) The most beautiful yarn I've ever seen 3 packs of polymer clay 4 georgous stitch markers a bottle of foot balm for my tired feel after a 12 hour shift a bottle of rose body lotion.......mmmmm smells wonderful And the most wonderful thing I recieved is my partners friendship. We chatted frequently and will continue to be friends. I want to thank Aunt Bubbles for having this swap. It has been one of my favorites!
  11. alchemyfyr.....just got back from vacation today and was sooooo glad to hear you liked your package. It was so much fun putting it together. I'm glad you like the bamboo yarn, I thought it was sooo soft and pretty. You have been a wonderful swap partner and now I can call you my friend.
  12. alchemyfyr.....your package was sent on 10-17. It should be there today or tomorrow. Stalk your mailman. Can't wait for you to get it. hehe
