  1. Hi friends: We don't change times in AZ, but, NV does. We always had to calculate the time difference when we were picking anyone up from the Las Vegas airport since they are an hour behind us during the change. A couple of times I was a bit late. My bad. Many years ago, they tried the time change here and it didn't get dark until almost 10:00pm. Needless to say, they went back to not changing after so many complaints. Thank you Mary Jo for the well wishes. Feeling pretty good today. Still dog sitting and don't know for how long. She's good company. The weather has still been great.
  2. I didn't feel well for a week or so but feeling pretty good now. It was mostly an overwhelming tiredness. Doc couldn't find anything after some tests but, he does keep on top of things. I'm a soup lover too this time of year. DD made some Cream of Potato Soup last week. So good. I have a recipe for Creamy Italian Sausage Soup I'm going to try in a few days. It should be a rib sticker. Not much going on here. Weather has been fabulous. Tomorrow the heating tech comes to check out the heater before it's needed for cold weather. I read yesterday that our natural gas prices are rising as
  3. They're all beautiful and so is the kitty.
  4. You're photo is from a Etsy account and there is a charge for the pattern. You can use this pattern (free) for the same type blanket. It has the same stitch count per square as your featured photo and depending on the yarn weight and hook size will determine how large/small the squares are.
  5. Oh- pretty colors. I still have not made one for mine. Guess I forgot. Oops.
  6. Happy Halloween! My posts are not staying on after I submit my reply. Sorta strange. Maybe this one will stick. I made this wreath 3 years ago for my daughter. I probably posted it then. Can't believe it's already been that long. Hope all have a fun Halloween.
  7. You could try some swatches, but, it would no longer be Filet Crochet. And even with hdc, you would not get the open look as with dc. Sc would be considered the Moss stitch. If you're looking for a finer texture, use smaller weight thread and a smaller hook such as #20 or #30 thread.
  8. The Houndstooth stitch comes to mind like this scarf I made previously. Here's another pattern: Houndstooth.
  9. That is so very pretty. Love the little toadstool in the glass to. That gives me an idea for a Christmas gift.
  10. What a pretty day today! No wind and up to about 73°. Can't ask for more. I'm curious about what winter will be like here since we had so much wonderful rain this summer. I hope all are having a very pleasant day.
  11. Hi All. Just popping in reading everyone's notes. It's nice to read what everyone is up to and about their weather changes. Even after all these years I miss the 4 seasons in the Lake Tahoe area. It was a very special place to my family for all year long. Sunday had a surprise for me as my DD was given an extra day off so she cooked dinner for us. Surf and Turf. What a feast! I saved the steak for last night's dinner, but enjoyed the King Crab legs and all the sides she made. Since she's gone back to work I haven't seen her but a few moments a day on her way to work. I'm so blessed to hav
  12. Congratulations! Sounds like a cute book. I told my daughter about it so she can buy it for her grandkids.
  13. I've not used this Hobby Lobby yarn as I don't have a store in my town. After looking up both yarns on their websites, I would venture to say they would not be the same. Yarn Bee Soft and Sleek is listed as a 4 weight and the Lion Brand Scarfie is listed as a 5 weight. Your best option is to make a swatch of each and compare gauges. If they measure out the same per stitches, you probably could make a go of it.
  14. pineknott: That's good news! I hope the cardio visit goes as well. On another note, it rained again last night! We haven't had this much rain during summer and fall in a very long time. I'm loving it. On a whim, I made another jar cover last night. Same pattern, a little bit larger jar, but different yarn. It's not as pretty to me as the smaller one, but, it's functional. Back to the afghan. I only have about 3 rounds to go. Enjoy your day and..... Be a Fruit Loop in the world of Cheerios! (author unknown)
  15. Well, Fall is here! The wind is a sure sign of seasons changing in this part of the country. I think I'll stay indoors since 25-35mph with 50mph gusts is a bit rough. Glasses are working well (they better at that price) and are comfier than the last pair. SIL is having some heart issues and he's only 54. He's all set for more tests by his cardiologist. DD is a bit anxious over this and I don't blame her. I am too for that matter. Mary Jo: Hope all went well with Tampa Guys' procedure. Please keep us posted. I'm so glad you are crocheting again. I try to diversify with painting,

    Yarnspirations Yarn Company has several style patterns. So does Lion Brand yarn.
  17. Thanks for the info Mary Jo. I looked online and the frames I bought were $56 less online than what I paid for. Told ya' I got gouged. I also had to pay part out of pocket for the eye exam even though in previous years it's been billed to Medicare and my secondary. I never paid anything out of pocket with my previous Dr's as it was considered medical due to glaucoma. Like I said, I like the Dr, but, not impressed with how much more they charge for everything. Done venting. Today will be better!
  18. Rain again this morning and welcomed. Maybe more later. It's not acting like Arizona with all this rain. I need to pick up my new glasses. Talk about expensive- WOW! I did get 30% off for belonging to AARP. I still felt gouged though. Mary Jo: Prayers for Tampa Guy for everything to run smoothly. I'm glad to read you've picked your hook up again. Small projects are great to glide back in. Enjoy!
  19. We had a huge storm early Monday morning. I could not go to sleep no matter what I tried so, I got back up and read awhile. The last time I looked at the clock was 4am. I finally fell asleep and BOOM! Thunder at 5am directly over my house. Talk about a wakeup. The lightening was so bright it had a blue tinge! Needless to say, I only slept a couple of hours after the storm but, made it through the rest of the day. The rain was nice though. LOL It's been cloudy around here off and on since and maybe a shower or 2 this weekend. It's strange but welcome to have so much rain this summer and no
  20. What tween or teen wouldn't love this hat ? Nice work.
  21. Be sure to check with your local library and also thrift stores. If your library does not have it, they can possibly borrow from another library. My local library has borrowed books for me even from out of state.
  22. That is a very pretty shawl. The designer Kathryn White (scroll to bottom for info) used to answer her e-mails and was a member here on Crochetville. Maybe she could give you some advice on her pattern.
  23. Good question. Now I'm wondering the same. Maybe, if necessary, instead of weaving in one of the tails it could be used to wrap and tie a bow around to secure. ETA: Or a knot like a half hitch or a girth hitch to easily untie and unroll.
