    gift for my doctor

    I think its very sweet that you are thinking of him I would do the same. I think a name filet is a good idea! He can hang it in his office and it could give it a more comfy feel to new patients.

    Ahhhhh Christmas...

    is going to be the death of me. We just moved into a new apartment 3 months ago. The rent is 2 X's what we were paying. So I decided for all my family I would crochet to keep costs cheaper this year. I also had 2 baby afghans to do for baby showers. So I have been crocheting like a mad woman and I swear I havnt even made a dent in my list. Most of the things are small like bath sets but I chose a set if 5 to do and have to do 3 individual sets. Then I have to finish an afghan for SIL and much much more. I think I went overboard. I will get it done but next year I'm starting earier LOL!

    the way we learned to crochet

    I dont remember the yarn it was thinner than WW but I still have the very same crochet hook size G that my grandma taught me on. I havnt bought another G yet. She gave me a J too and I just started using it. I thought it would be harder but it wasnt. I like H the best though

    Hi! I'm in Miami. I love to crochet too! I know what you mean about people not being into it so much around here. My inlaws think I'm nuts. But to each his own.

    Hello From Illinois !

    I miss that chilly weather.....sometimes LOL! I love Sandwich! My friends and I used to go out there to the opera house and watch plays. I had a friend that played in Hello Dolly there once. My dad and I almost moved there when I was in junior high. My mom lived in Somonauk for a long time too out in a farm house. I loved it. I went up there last January to visit my dad and sister and we went to Shabona Park. Things have changed sooooo much up there its crazy!!!!I miss home sometimes. Its slow pace and friendliness. My dad lives in Yorkville now. Thats pretty quiet there too.

    Finally Getting my stash and projects organized

    I have a 30 gallon tote that holds my yarn. I also bought a plastic shoe container kinda like a rectagular tupperware thing to store my hooks and small WIP like all the millions of granny squares. I also keep a small book in there I call my crochet bible called "All about crochet". I throw all my needles and yarn scraps in there too. I also bought a binder that I keep all my patterns in that I print off or make. Then my books get put on the bookcase top row. I have a big dufflr bag that I put all completed projects in that are not going to be put to use immediately too. I love to be organized LOL! I'm so anal with my yarn I even have to roll it into perfect little balls before I use it. I'm weird I know. If I lived near ya I would help you organize though. Good luck sweety!

    Back Pain from Crocheting too much???

    I guess they want me to go in for Xrays and they put me on pain meds that make me all loopy and do nothing for the pain. I'm going on 2 weeks of pain its weird. The Dr. told me I could continue to crochet as long as I'm lying down. I laugh at the lying down part cause I have a 2 year old and there isn't much laying down time for me.

    Schoolhouse

    My sister and BIL just built and opened a new day care center for their community. I thought it would be a neat idea to design and crochet a school house and instead of the normal red walls with windows on the side have it be black like a chalk board then in white (like chalk) maybe puff stitches or something have the name of the day care (Scribbles) inside. Ive never designed a pattern so I really dont even know how to begin. Any suggestions?
  14. I have never sold anything that Ive made but have been told I should. So I'm looking into it. If I have a free pattern that I got from a book/magazine/or internet sight and I make the item can I sell it? Not the pattern the item I made. Ive never made a pattern so I'm just curious. I wouldnt want to sell something and then get in trouble KWIM.

    Back Pain from Crocheting too much???

    Well at least I know I'm not the only one LOL! Its been a week of this intense pain so I doubt its actually from the crocheting. No matter what my SIL says. I am soooooo addicted to crocheting that I actually only stopped for one day and then Ive been crocheting lying down in bed LOL!!!! I need it to relax!
