  1. Hi my name is Rev. PennyAnnie. You can me just Penny! I am Assembly of God Youth Pastor. I am addicted to all kinds of Needlecrafts especially knitting and crocheting! I started knitting when I was 8 years old. I started crocheting at 10 years old. I saw my Great Aunt crocheting a beautiful blanket for my cousin's bridal shower. I had to learn! I love to make up my own patterns. I love knitting and crocheting for my collection of Barbie and Ken dolls. I knit/crochet for my Twin Baby Dolls who are the same size of a 6 month old baby! I love talking about crocheting!
  2. That is so awesome! I never knew that they would do it! Did you have to prove it was for charity? :*csheep
  3. There is a Yarn/Cafe Store in NYC. I seen men crochet/knit that were young, in-between and old. Some of them made up their own patterns. Awesome! The place is on 14street and 3rd Avenue. :)h
  4. Web site about.com has a crochet newsletter out. I found they have tips on Irish crochet on it! :)h I can't wait to try it. They are so many things that I can make :*csheep
  5. I remember making alot of those hats back in the 1970's because it was a favorite of everyone that didn't know how to crochet. We had alot of fashions with the Granny squares. We crochet ponchos, skirts, scarves, sweaters, vests and tote bags. This is great because now alot of girls who want these fashions now want to learn to crochet too! I live in Brooklyn, NY I wish I had those stores near me. I have to travel far to a yarn store or I have to order it online! :*csheep
  6. I have been watching the reruns of Will & Grace on channel 11 in NYC. I have notice in several shows the maid actually crochets on the show. One show she is crocheting a sweater You can see by the shape of it. :*cwreath
