    Latest Afghan

    The afghan stitch I believe is the same as tunisian crochet. Don't think I spelled it right. It is rather easy. Since the afghan was made out of squares, it didn't take long to make. I would say that the longest part was probably cross stitching the design on the squares.

    mill ends

    I have purchased mill ends before and have had no problems with them. I have made a baby set as well as 2 baby afghans with mill ends. They came out great. The only problem you will have is if you run out of yarn. Trying to match it up will be difficult. Whenever I go shopping for yarn now, I always check for mill ends 1st due to the fact it saves me money and the projects I have made with it come out perfect.

    Latest Afghan

    It was a Mary Maxim pattern. I believe that it was sold in a kit at one point in time. Suprisingly it only took about 1 to 1 1/2 months to make. It went so much faster then I anticipated.

    Latest Afghan

    Here is the most recent afghan that I have finished. I was lucky enough to purchase it off of ebay for a fraction of the cost. It was quite fun to see it all come together. My husband, who is an outdoor enthusiast (hunter and fisherman) absolutley loves it. Each square was done in the afghan stitch and then I cross stitched the pictures on top. I took alot less time then I anticipated. When you live in Maine, this is the perfect addition to a couch or loveseat.
  9. Another Mainer here would also like to say welcome:hook
  10. When I use red heart yarn it always feels scratchy at first. After I wash it I throw it in the dryer with a couple of dryer sheets and you would be amazed as to how soft it comes out. To be honest, most of the afghans I have made have been with red heart super saver yarn. Everyone has been amazed as to how soft the afghans have been. Fabric softener helps more then you would think.
  11. I want one as well. I might have to get a second job just to keep my crochet addiction going.:lol:lol
  12. That is similar, but when you try to click on the charts so you have something to go by, they don't work. Thanks anyway for your help.
  13. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY:applause I must say that I absolutely :bheart your work. Keep it up:clap
  14. Can anyone help???????????? I am looking to make another baby blanket for another cousin who is pregnant. I have vowed to make every one a different blanket.

I have been searching for over a month. Can you help me??????????PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  15. I actually made it with worsted weight yarn. I just increased my hook by 2 sizes. I used a size F hook.
