    Since 2003
  1. That looks much nicer than the towel I throw over mine!
  2. Last year I was gifted with a large box of assorted yarns, all I believe, synthetic. There are at most three skeins of any particular color. I just didn't know what to do. I didn't have a lot of crochet time the last year anyways. I've recently picked it up again and decided to just go ahead and make scarves and hats and such in the hopes that either I will have a great gift stash or one day I will have enough to sell. Until those times come, how can I best store my finished items? Thanks.
  3. She's going to love it! Nice work.
  4. I agree with the granny square. For my last daughter I made a rectangular granny square using a rose as the main color with a matching purple and blue for accent. I think I did four rows of rose, two blue, 4 rose, 2 purple, 4 rose...repeat to desired size. I made sure to end with rose as it was the main color. Then did an edging of the blue and purple together. I was very pleased with it!
  5. That's lovely, thank you for sharing.
  6. The last time I signed in was September 9, 2008. At that time I had a newborn baby (my third child). Since then I have moved and dealt with a whole bucketfull of life. And oddly enough, we're getting ready to move again the end of August. I haven't had a lot of time for chrochet the last year, that's for sure. So I am a sahm of three, four and under, a wife of over 9 years. I like to crochet, read, cook, scrap, and too many other things!
  7. My suggestion would be to get on Ravelry and search out the Central NY group. I know they meet at least once a month, but I am not sure where these days. Just a few months ago, I too left the area, so I kind of lost touch.
  8. I am on there daily too, but I haven't update my project stuff in a very long time. Partially b/c I wasn't working on stuff due to morning sickness and a move. I really should get on and update that stuff.
  9. Hello! I was wandering through my "new posts" lists and saw this. I have spent the last few weeks working on a rectangle granny square blanket for my next baby girl who is due in August. I don't have any in progress pictures, but I am using Caron Simply Soft in a rose, country blue, and plum (?-a darker shade of purple). It won't be huge, but I want it to at least be crib sized. It's kind of slow going b/c I have a 3.5yr old, 1.5 yr old and a book club book that I haven't started yet that is supposed to be read by 7/1. Looking forward to seeing what ya'll are working on.
  10. Great project for that yarn. I've never seen that color offered as SS though, only regular.
  11. I am certainly no pro, but I recently made a stuffed monkey for a 7 month old boy and when it came to the eyes, I just used some black yarn to cross stitch some eyes. It doesn't look as good as something bought probably would, but at least I know he won't be swallowing them.
