  1. I was in Italy, and I bought a couple of their knitting magazines. Gorgeous stuff! They had a link to a website...

  3. Thanks for posting this. My friend works for Save The Children, and this is the email she forwarded me. I'm going to be teaching a beginner crochet class for some of the people who work there so that they can also get started on the hats. Here's the info on the Newborn hats program: Save the Children has teamed up with the Warm Up America! Foundation to launch Knitters and Crocheters for Newborns: Caps to the Capital. The initiative aims to engage thousands of volunteer knitters and crocheters to help raise awareness about the need to do more to help babies in developing countries survive their first month of life. The United States can lead the way in saving newborn lives by increasing funding for critical health measures for mothers and children. But we need your help. We are asking volunteers to take three steps before January 2007. These steps include: knit or crochet a cap; write a personal note to President Bush; and unite for newborns. In January, Save the Children will take caps, along with the personal notes, to Washington, D.C., to show America's leaders that Americans want to do more to save newborn lives globally. Then, the caps will be delivered to babies who need them in developing countries where Save the Children works. To get started, download a Caps to the Capital Action Kit, which includes step-by-step instructions, cap patterns, a sample note to the President and a flyer to post at your favorite yarn shop or community bulletin board. Go to: http://www.savethechildren.org/capstothecapitol/index.asp?stationpub=i_hpb3_camp002&ArticleID=&NewsID=. You cap can help us save a life, your voice can help us save millions. We hope you will join us in this effort.

  7. I have to say, it's slow going for me. Not because I can't do it... I've got other things on my plate besides crocheting. I need to wait until vacation!! I'm keeping an eye out for you guys who need to catch up to me!! BTW, another one probably pops up on EBAY after it is purchased because people are probably copying the patterns and auctioning them right back. Not that I'm making a recommendation. Just guessing.
  8. I have started. It's going to be slow going, I think, so keep looking out on ebay!
  9. I never wear wool sweaters because of the itchiness, but my friend just made me felted slippers and they are not itchy at all.
  10. I only use the "New Posts" function at this point. My problem is... if people are resorting to "new posts", because it is otherwise unmanageable, then perhaps it's not an effective design. I am a member of some other (non-swing) boards, and most of them choose to have the bare minumum number of forums for this very reason. Also, it is customary to SEARCH a forum before starting a new topic so that there are not an overwhelming number of threads. For example, I noticed that there was a thread started about Interweave Crochet's "Salon Capelet"... I know there is at least one other thread out there on it.
  11. Hi, moderators and fellow users... I think Crochetville is a great place. However, there is something that is driving me crazy... TOO MANY FORUMS. I personally feel that there are too many forums and too many sub-topics. If I want to see people's finished works, I don't want to seach 5 different forums for it. If I want to find a pattern, I don't want to check three different places for it. I think that this setup makes me miss a lot of interesting stuff and is difficult to manage. Does anyone else feel this way? I am not asking for anything to be changed for me... I am relatively new here. Just my 2 cents.
  12. Oy. It seems to me that it is completely RIDICULOUS that Annie's Attic isn't moving on this sooner. If one copy is going for $40 on Ebay, you would think they could sell a ton of these things at a reasonable cost. Bah. It looks like I'll be making this on my own...
  13. I had trouble with your link. Try this one: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/kategori_oversikt.php
  14. I have the pattern, and plan on scanning it to post the photo at work this week. Patterns may not be scanned with the photos posted here at Crochetville.
