    Not Sure What to crochet my dad.....

    I thought about afghans but my only draw back is my dad and step dad are hot natured. My step dad wears shorts in December and walks around bare foot. My dad hardly ever wears long sleeves. So I am not sure about doing an afghan.

    What's on your hook for Christmas?

    I actually wrote down today a list of people I would be giving gifts to for Christmas and what I would make them. I started working about five days ago on an Afghan for my younger brother for Christmas. I was surprised when he wanted one. My dad freezes my brother and step-mom since he doesn't turn the heat up very high. When i told my step-mom i was crocheting my first afghan i was very surprised & so was my husband when my brother said he wanted an afghan. I mentioned i was working on a dark purple and he was like forget it. Then i told him i would do a blue one for him. So I am making a blue afghan for my 14 year old brother.
  6. I am wanting to crochet a purse that is on a beginner level. so far I Have only completed one project a scarf. The purse pattern needs to be pretty simple.

    My Biggest Project Ever! RR

    Are you a beginner or experienced crocheter. I hope the Afghan i am working on turns out beautifully like that. I'm a beginner and the afghan i am working on is my second project.
  8. I am needing a pattern for a simple dog sweater for a small dog. This will be my first crocheting project. Is there a book that has only dog sweater patterns?
  9. I just ordered a DVD to teach me how to crochet and the first thing I want to make is a sweater for my dog. Is there any yarn that is tougher than other yarns? How different is left handed stitching from right handed is it more difficult? I am left handed and was wondering if it will make it more difficult for me?? Crystal
