    ISO Red Heart Dusty Teal

    If there was just a "slight" difference I wouldn't be looking at all---- Real teal is about 12 shades darker it just wouldn't look right

    wow everyone has been busy- lots of pretty stuff i have been as well-- busy that is crochet crowd challenge it is a scarf pattern- I made 5 and attached them lapghan size turtles two soccerball 'ghans:: the pattern called for a rolled edge, but when I followed the pattern the whole thing rolled- I could have stuffed it and made a pillow!!! so I just made a flat border. Re-did the edge for the second and got a "flat" rolled edge I then started the 10 stitch that someone posted here( in tunisian - sc and I don't get along) but rememberd that I had 2 daisy afghans half finished so here is the first of them one more to put together and then on to some new ones

    This one is from the Crochet crowd challenge mentioned above Not the 40" square they wanted but I can't do the same repeat pattern for that long and get it done in a reasonable amount of time so I settled for 32 " square

    well, now I know why i have tension issues- steel hooks have a very wide range of thicknesses after the hook !! however after a marathon I have these these work up much faster, but I have a hook with a bigger handle- these were my first time working with beads on the thread so far I am happy with the results, but I have much more respect for prople wo do really fancy stuff with thread!!!!

    Dr Who

    My Daughter in law wanted a Dr who scarf but I don't knit . I wasn't too enamored of knooking and was about to ebay my books and hooks but I'm glad I didn't. 10 feet of garter stitch It still takes almost as long as knitting, which is why I quit knitting so i probably won't do much, but I'm keeping my hooks just in case
