    Darski, we are so glad that you are still here!! Your sets are beautiful as always. I agree wth Mona, if it still brings you joy even though it's not at the pace you'd like, then you have your answer. You have brought so much happiness to so many with your gift. Brenda, the stockings are so fun. I wonder what they look like all packed in a box. A little sock party!! I got 11 more blankets ready for the rescue today: Also made a "candy corn" hat. My gauge is finally getting a bit more relaxed. This hat will fit a large head or someone with a lot of hair. This was a J hook. I have enough yarn left to make another one so I will try an I hook. The yarn was a Goodwill find.

    Oh Brenda those are so fun. Those little stockings make me smile every time you post them!

    Linda, whew. I was looking through last year's thread wondering if I somehow missed such bad news. Not that losing your mother in law and son in law weren't bad, but you know what I mean. And as if just on queue, I see that I missed Brenda's beautiful new ghans and Bailey's illness. I do need a new iPad. This one is old and very slow. I went to see how much new ones were, and wow. Anyway, once in a while, when I come to the Ville, it forgets to show me new posts. Hope everyone else is doing well. And Darski, if anyone sees her in other topics, please let her know we miss her and are thinking of her.

    Linda, I went to the VBSPCA website and saw how the nests are used. It seems that they always need them. Hard to believe there are that many orphan birds! (Says the kitten rescuer that can't wrap her hear around the number of orphan kittens) Anyway, I hate to ask because I don't wan't to be insensitive, but I honestly can't remember. I know you have lost several family members since we have been together on this CAL. You referred to Rene in the past tense. Is she one of the family members you lost?

    Wow, the birds nests are really cute! Didn't you say once that they are 3 strands with an h hook? They look like about the size of a soup can. My hand is tired just looking at them.

    Mine is kind of see through too. Maybe I should make a slip.

    So yes, I am up at 2am. Have not been able to sleep at all for the last two days. So frustrating. Anyway, I used my "wide awake at the wrong time" hours productively. I got a dress done and it actually fits! Yay! I got the Walmart brand yarn for $1.97 per skein and I have to say that I really like it. It's very soft when compared to RHSS. I will for sure buy it again.

    OH Pineknott, I am so sorry to hear about you heartbreak last year. Time seems to stop and fly by at the same time when we are grieving. It's hard to balance your life again afterwards. I have to tear out my teal dress. I was happy that it came out larger but last night I tried it on my doll and this one is way too big. Sigh. I'll get it right. I really like the color and the texture of the yarn.

    Bailey, love your projects. How would you rate that Easter dress pattern as far as difficulty goes? (Do you think I could tackle it?)

    I finally started another dress. Both of these yarns are supposed to be #4 and I used a J hook on both. What a difference the yarn makes! This one will probably fit a lot better. I wish the color hadn't changed so noticeably on the front. I am using Red Heart with Love, Stripes.

    Ooh love those bright colors. Glad you took the second picture! My brain is really on a roll about the bags. I found a shoebox of zippers in my mom's old sewing room, so I don't even have to buy those. Anyone heard from Darski in any of the other forum topics?

    Ok, so it sounds like bags could be a good shelter item. Now I need to get out my cute fabrics. I have both sizes of the addi knitters. The small one knits like a dream and the large one is good when you give her the brands of yarn she likes. I only bought the new one because it had a few more hooks to make slightly bigger hats. I will probably fuss around with it more after I am done being angry with it. We'll say it's in time out!! Linda, if you get a chance to share a picture of some of your nests, that would be great. I think we have a few new people here who have not seen them before. Still trying to get used to a house without Pooh. But I have 5 new kittens arriving on Saturday, so I will be busy with prescious new littles. The Capitals play so early in this first round that I am usually at work and then driving home when the games are on, so I haven't made any hockey hats this year!

    So this is not crochet, but I finally learned how to make a zipper pouch. It was so fun... Sorry about how orange the picture is. I'm going to make these for the volunteers in our rescue. I do have some cute fabric from Frozen and some Spiderman fabric, so maybe I could make those up and give them to a shelter for the kids. Do you think the little bags would be nice for the kids or impractical? i still have had zero luck with that new circular knotting machine. I got it as a birthday present for myself and it backfired!!

    Hi all...a quick update from me. I got my car back yesterday so I am trying to get my life back in order. I have been ignoring some health issues and boy they are kicking me in the butt these days. Bailey, I am trying to decide on what color my next dress will be. I don't want to mail away that first one until I get a second one going so I can check the pattern. I also really want to try a poncho and hat. I think you all know that I have two Addi circular machines for making hats and scarves. I got a new "Sentro" brand machine a few weeks ago and have not had any success with it yet. But I am determined to find a yarn it likes. It has a few more needles than the Addi and I thought that would be great for men's hats. Hope you are all well.

    Pine knot, which butterfly pattern are you using? I love the pattern on that first blanket. I'd also like to know that pattern. Today we had to put our sweet Poohbear to sleep. He had a tumor and was just skin and bones. I was rear ended on Tuesday and had a flat tire last night. Not my favorite week.
