  1. Just lovely. I'm impressed with the work and the method. How large is it?
  2. Thank you so much for all the years. I got my start crocheting by using your site. Enjoy retirement!
  3. I miss my bi-weekly dose of new patterns. I hope the new folks get things going again.
  4. I've flown with crochet hooks for years -- no problem. As for water bottles, I've found it handy to bring an empty water bottle, then fill from the airport water fountains after I've been through security. Again, no problem.
  5. What a lovely afghan! You did a great job.
  6. Thanks so much for your suggestions. I will try the pattern as per Ravelry and see if I can make my way through that. I really appreciate your ideas.
  7. I've been trying to figure out how to complete a Sally's Friend cardigan from Crochet! magazine but am stuck. I have gotten the online corrections but am still baffled on how to put it together/where to put the skirt. Having finished back and front pieces, I hate to just throw it away. Anyone worked on this sweater successfully?
  8. I found that using one of those pop-up hampers works well -- stands up straight but is a bit squishable. And you can see through it enough to tell the colors/types of yarn. The rest of my yarn is in clear boxes, some the kind that slide under the bed (6 can fit under a double bed).
  9. Hello, fellow crocheters! I've been lurking on this site for ages, finally joined, then the computer went down. So it's taken me a while to just say hello (not to mention shyness). I taught myself to crochet about five years ago during a particularly stressful and lonely week and have been hooking away ever since. I've learned a lot from following the posts on this site. So thanks to everyone who has so freely shared their expertise and ideas. My favorite things to make are wearables. I am currently into crochetng sweaters, though it's not cold enough to wear them much and I haven't hit on a pattern I really like on me (larger than I'd like). But my eye is really drawn to tapestry crochet. I look forward to getting to know you all and learning more and more about crocheting.
