    Searching for Parisienne Camisole

    Sorry about that. I'll keep my eyes open, but, it's unlikely the pattern would be available elsewhere. If it's any help, and I'm not sure how updated it might be, but, here is the crochet designer's contact info: https://www.blogger.com/profile/04680698602771176906

    Mother's Day Gift

    I don't have the Furl's hooks, but, everyone I spoke to that has them loves them. Personally, I would only try one simply because of price. Check out what is currently being used by your wife and go similar. I use the Clover Amour hooks exclusively. Helps with the arthritis immensely. I do use a wood yarn bowl. My husband made mine and I love it. It keeps the yarn balls and skeins in one spot and not rolling all over the floor or in a large basket. I use a yarn bag too. Great for traveling and organizing projects and equipment. If all else fails on decisions, get a gift certificate to her favorite yarn/craft store.

    Mother's Day Gift

    Cardgunner: You are so thoughtful to think of your wife in such a loving way! Something I would love as a gift is a wood or ceramic Yarn Bowl, or a Yarn Bag in my favorite color. There are also beautiful handmade crochet hooks to choose from. What gal wouldn't love something like these? PS: I only chose Amazon.com for reference because they have 2 day shipping if you are a Prime member.

    You're very welcome. I think it is commendable what you are doing. 🙂

    Chemo blankets

    The blankets are so pretty and for such a great cause. I too am making afghans for donation, mostly from my stash yarn and I'm wondering now, did you use a hdc or sc for the stitch in your afghan? I've made Ripples before with sc and they took forever to complete. Right now I'm working on a V-st and it's going at a pretty good pace. Keep up the great work. It's a pleasure to see your finished projects.

    Funny! Reminds me of the old cartoons when the character's eyes would bug out. 😄

    Looking for this pattern please

    I'm on the same edge about this, iffy. Think I'll treat it as the same until I might learn more, just to be on the safe side.

    Looking for this pattern please

    Hi Granny Square: Just wondering here; I saw this particular pattern/tutorial featured on YouTube by Bag-O-Day-Crochet. Do you know if this is copyright infringement? I have done extensive research on copyright for print items, but, that was before YouTube came about (ages ago).

    teal shawl

    Very pretty and unique. It reminds me of the patterns I've seen from the late 1800's. What goes around, comes around. 🙂

    When you can't hold a needle anymore???

    Gosh I'm sorry you're going through this. When I have arthritis issues, I do like Granny square says with a very small hook, except, I pull the ends through like a box, (up through st, across row 2-3- st,, down through the st to the original row, then across the 2-3 st to where the yarn end started) Make sense?
