  1. I haven't been able to find it in stores. I found it on Amazon, but the cheapest was 30 dollars and am maybe hoping for one a bit cheaper. Thank you.

    Looking for a site

    Someone once posted a link with a database of all the Annie's attics FPOD. But I can't find it here [search button is messing up] and I can't remember what it is called. Anyone know what i am talking about?

    I need some feedback.

    That is kinda my problem I feel like it is just not the 'right' shade. I want something a bit richer i guess. Next time I think i may just use the charcoal and pink rather then brown.

    me too but these are quite easy, if you need any help let me know. http://www.mypicot.com/mc1005.html its in PDF form and chart i also extend my help if you need it to read/translate the pattern. Its really easy once you get the hang of it.

    Is this wrong or right?

    honestly I don't know if that is true or not. I sometimes forget to blog regularly. But I try and do so at least 1x a week but sometimes I have been known to blog once a day for a week. just depends. Mine is not just crochet but also about me often I post pics I take stuff like that.

    Seeking this pattern - shell stitch

    wow that is really pretty. All her work looks amazing.. Makes me wonder if they are her own design.

    Bernat Baby shawl.[help please!]

    i counted on it being bigger because of the yarn difference and hook difference but it is really long. My big problem is the pattern itself. it just doesn't seem to sit well. I frogged it because it was just bugging me and i wanted to use the yarn for something else. But I was hoping maybe someone else had made it so I could see pics.

    Bernat Baby shawl.[help please!]

  11. I started this project.. Well first I couldn't find Bernat baby, so I decided to just utilize the baby bee yarn. and a size F hook... Its Huge! i chained the 316 and its like sooooo big.. Then as i am working the pattern the ch 3's in the pattern are kinda bunching up and basically it looks NOTHING like the picture.. has anyone finished one of these and possibly have a pic of your FO? I can't really tell from the pic on the site if it will turn out that way, but wow is this going to be a pretty big baby shawl if I keep it up at this length. http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=174

    General pattern help..[tips needed]

    how do you find the repeat stitches in a written pattern. that is my problem, in a chart it's pretty easy to do but written not so much.

    I need some feedback.

    kinda sorta, that is just what my friend requested since they didn't have nursery colors at the time. http://www.mypicot.com it's in the free section under multi color. I love their patterns. very different.
