  1. Hi everyone, thanks very much for the welcome! I'll post some pics of the crocheted items I've done over the years in the appropriate thread.
  2. Columbo is on here in England every Sunday afternoon. Yesterday we were watching the episode "Ransom for a Dead Man" with Lee Grant as the murderess. She lived in a big mansion and in one scene she was sleeping with a granny square afghan which was very pretty. It had a burgundy boarder and the squares were in burgundy, white, pink and light blue. I'll see if I can find a screen shot and if not I'll take a pic from the screen if it's on demand.
  3. Hello, I have been a member for a number of years. I kind of rediscovered crochet and I tend to crochet more than knit these days. I'm back on Crochetville as I find it a friendly site. I left another craft site recently (ahem!). Glad to be back on Crochetville. I'm from New York, but I have lived in England for quite awhile. Thank you for having me.
  4. Love this thread because it's one of my all time favorite films. I also love the crochet shawl and it has been one of my ambitions to recreate it.
  5. Thanks for pointing me to that! I have finally joined Ravelry. I liked seeing the different versions. The pattern definitely allows for a variety of yarns.
  6. Hi there! If you, or anyone you know, has made this, I would be very grateful to see photos. I have never done hairpin lace crochet, but I have seen the video of the making of this shawl on youtube. I plan to make it for my sister's wedding in May, and I would also like to know how fast this makes up (pretty fast I gather). Thank in advance!

  7. Thanks to you both, magiccrochetfan - I thought it might even be a knit stitch - after searching I found this: http://thewalkertreasury.wordpress.com/?s=open+star+stitch&searchbutton=go%21 which does look similar. I picked up another stitch library today (Good Housekeeping - second hand) and their star stitch is different too. They also have a "blossom stitch", which looks similar to the stitch in the beret. Oh well, might just have to swatch to see what looks best. Thanks again, Elizabeth p.s. I've got several beret patterns I can work from now, thanx!
  8. Hello all! This is such a cute beret: http://tinyurl.com/25hjpa My Crochet Stitch Bible (Betty Barnden) has the star stitch but it looks a little different. Would anyone know what exactly is the stitch used in this beret, and if there is a pattern out there very similar to this. I gotta make this! Thanx, Elizabeth
