  1. Welcome from another West Texan.
  2. I am not sure where to put this, so feel free to move it if I picked the wrong spot. MSNBC has an article up about college age guys teaching Ugandan women to crochet. Its a pretty good article. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20780105/
  3. The other day there was a season 3 marathon and while the girls were getted whittled down to the final 14 from 20something who do we see crocheting? Eva-diva herself! Its quick but she is doing it, something bright pink.
  4. I crochet for about an hour before I go to sleep. Any other time is rare with my 1 yr old.
  5. Hola and welcome from El Paso! Glad to have you here.
  6. Depends on the yarn - G if we are talking worsted weight or smaller, N for Bulky sizes.
  7. I'm not really sure where to put this so feel free to move the thread if I picked wrong. I have held off on making myself any wearables other than scarves, shawls and ponchos because of modesty. Crochet seems to be so open that even if I make a pretty tank I would need to wear another one under it (defeats the purpose of a tank ) or have everyone stare at my bra all day . Is there a stitch I am just not aware of that is not so "showy" when its worked up? Any other suggestions?
  8. I have only followed a pattern to the letter once and it came out just like in the picture. It was a infant sweater for my daughter.
  9. Wow, very cute! If you are looking for charities Project Linus can always use donations. http://www.projectlinus.org/index.shtml
  10. That bag is sooo cool! I love it!
  11. I love Albuquerque and I did have a good time. Husband had a bowling tournament there and he has relatives there so he knows the area really well, but for some odd reason he isn't to well versed on the LYS there
  12. Go west, keep going, hit new mexico, back up 2 feet, here I am! Out in El Paso.
  13. I really like the lining too! Great bag!
