  1. After 2 months, this is off my hook!!! Not a tough pattern, just a lack of crochet time with classes. I'm so glad summer vacation is here so I can crochet more!! http://picasaweb.google.com/boogeebutt/PrayerShawls/photo#5205972755414097842
  2. Thank you all for you suggestions: I think we'll try some belts and coin purses, etc. I will have hair bands on hands if there are any girls who want to make them. This is going to be fun!!!
  3. Ok friends, I have volunteered my services for a summer program teaching young girls how to crochet. I have never done this before so for those of you who have gone before me I have some questions: 1. Is there a hook size that would be the easiest for them to manuever? I was thinking H hooks. 2. What project would you recommend to teach basic stitches? I was thinking a potholders, coaster or something. Any suggestions? Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated; I'm really looking forward to this but I'm a little nervous at the same time.
  4. Gorgeous!!!!! Hmmmmmm I have some purple Simply soft that is screaming for me to make something with it. Do you think 4 skeins would let me complete this???
  5. I'm making this one and love the pattern-so far I have used 3 skeins of Caron Simply soft and I'm about 1/2 way done but I made the afghan bigger than the pattern calls for as well.
  6. I bought 2 of these and can't use them because bright lights give me migraines and these are BRIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  7. I love the table, particularly the Easter Egg doily!!!!! Absolutely beautiful!!!
  8. Wow that is incredible!!!!!!!!!!!
  9. I skip them because if I have trouble with the pattern directions, without a pic or symbols there is no way to see what the problem might be.
  10. Thanks I got it and am making good progress.
  11. I appreciate you and all you do for us beginner/intermediates. Some patterns I feel like a total newbie despite crocheting 30+ years and others I feel like an old pro. Keeps me on my toes!
  12. OK I was having a brainfart and once I rethought it, I thought that might have been what she meant. Thanks a bunch!
  13. I have a question regarding row 3 on this pattern: Row 3: Ch 3, 1 DC at base of turning chain, (DC to ch1 space, ch sp incr, placing marker in ch 1 space)x 3, DC to end working 2 DC into top of turning chain, turn What all should I end up with in the ch 1 space? Will I have a dc, then the ch sp inc, so essentially a dc, dc, ch 1, dc???? I'm confused on that part.
  14. I love this pattern and this seems as though it should be self-explanatory but I'm confused. On row 3, the pattern states: Row 3: Ch 3, 1 DC at base of turning chain, (DC to ch1 space, ch sp incr, placing marker in ch 1 space)x 3, DC to end working 2 DC into top of turning chain, turn Does that mean that in the chain 1 sp I will have a dc, and the ch sp inc which consists of 1 dc, ch, 1 dc??? Not sure what all I'm supposed to end up with in the ch 1 space.
  15. Absolutely gorgeous!!!!! Thanks for sharing!!!
  16. I don't see where telling someone that an MP3 is a music file is calling someone ignorant. As for the blog, I haven't looked at it, so I don't think lifting a few choice lines that seem to prove your point b/c you're angry puts the context of those lines into focus. Let's try to avoid a flame war simply b/c someone stated a fact about a type of file.
  17. How are we coming on this pattern?
  18. How's that pattern coming along??? I for one would love to make this!!
  19. Welcome from a fellow Husker!!!! You will love it here; it is addictive!!!
  20. Not to detract from the project but make sure that the victims advocate asks if the victim would like one. As both a DV survivor and advocate, when someone has been choked by his/her abuser oftentimes the LAST thing they want is something around the neck.
  21. Red Heart Plush did it for me. The stuff is slippery and it attracts static like none other. Trying to stitch while the yarn is stuck to me is verrryyyyyyy distracting. I ended Freecycling all of it to a woman who makes chemo caps.
