  9. ok I've looked for an hour now and while I can see this on the homepage, I can't find a link to the pattern. What is the name of the pattern? I've searched under box, basket, etc.

  11. Absolutely stunning! !!!!!! I wait every month just to see what you've dreamed up and to read your stories of what inspired the design.
  12. Thanks Jimbo, I saw an article recently about conditioning hooks and I got to wondering where to find the beeswax. I appreciate your guidance. >>>When using wood hooks, I'd NEVER recommend using water for cleaning. If there are any little cracks or bare wood exposed to water, the grain will swell and you could ruin the hook/needle. My hooks are finished with a "General" brand polymerized oil, which I think, leaves a little harder surface than say, Danish Oil, so you can recondition my hooks using the poly oil if you have some handy. That'd probably work even better than the beeswax. But in either case (beeswax or poly oil) do like the Karate Kid...clean cotton rag, rub oil/wax on... and don't just dab it on, RUB it on. Rub hard enough to warm the hook. Then take another clean cotton rag and rub it off... no need to wait for drying. Again, burn some calories while your doing it... warm the hook, get into your aerobic phase. You'll be very pleased with the results. Its possible you'd get different advice from other hook makers, but the above is what's worked for me. Jimbo
  13. ohhhhhhh there is a quilting place a few blocks from me so I'll try there first!!! Thanks for the help!!! You guys and girls are the greatest!!!!
  14. Ohhhhhhhhh Jimbo or anyone who does this - could you please tell me where to find beeswax? Is it hiding somewhere in my grocery store or do I need to go somewhere special to find it??
  15. I would love it so much if you would share the pattern here; I know several peeps I could make this for!!!!

  22. That for the life of me I haven't been able to figure out filet
  23. I made my mentor a scarf for Christmas last year and he loved loved loved it and talked about how lightweight but warm it was. I chained the length I wanted, then did a row of sc, a row of dc, and a row alternating dc in the front loop, dc in the back loop , repeat for pattern. I used a J hook.
  24. So. . .for someone who has never tackled a wearable before, this could be quite the effort? I love it but admit it is intimidating me a bit.
