  • Crocheting since...
    Since 1975
  1. I have about 45 full skeins. I really have some serious shopping to do to catch up with some of you folks. Which I would love to try to do, but I have to save up for my vacation.
  2. I like to sew, quilt, and knit as well as crochet. But I think crochet is my favorite.
  3. That is absolutely beautiful. Nice work.
  4. Another good one. I *heart* all your heart squares. Thank you.
  5. What a very pretty square. Thank you for sharing the pattern with us.
  6. What a clever idea. Nice work. Love the edging.
  7. Hi all Florida crocheters. I just realized I never posted in this thread. I don't want to be left out. I'm up here in the panhandle - Tallytown. The center of crazieness.
  8. Looks a lot better than the first picture, still curving but not as drastic. Keep practicing.
  9. Hi ammorgan, you got some really great advice from smart folks. I just wanted to encourage you to keep trying, it gets easier, really, it does. Happy crocheting.
  10. I know what you mean smokeyp81. I, too, have a high efficiency front loader. I bought it a couple of years ago before I even knew what felting was. You can also felt by hand but that takes just as long and you have to keep agitating the item. Some folks felt in the dryer, but I don't know how they do it. I can only guess that they wash the item and then dry it in the dryer. With high heat, I would imagine that would help a lot with felting.
  11. I'm 52 and I've been crocheting since I was 14. I took a couple of lessons from a neighbor who crocheted and learned the rest from books. After loads and loads of practice I learned how to crochet pretty good started out with potholders, one to afghans and even made a sweater for one of my daughter's dolls. How I wish I had the internet when I was trying to learn, it would have been so much easier. Now I'm learning to knit and do the afghan stitch. There is so much stuff you can do with yarn. I love it all.
  12. Love your doll/plastic bag holder. I'll have to look into the book you got the pattern from. Sounds like it has fun patterns in it.
