  1. Thank you. I'm going to give the Thermal st a go. I've not tried it before and it looks intriguing. I have always kept a box of potholder sets and scarves for last minute gifts and have been lax on keeping it supplied this past year+. Thanks again.
  2. Well, maybe I should stick to my favorite, the Magic Potholder. It's always a no fail in sc.
  3. I made 1 set of "wiggly" potholders several years ago and found them to be too "holey". Thank you for the input. Every bit helps.
  4. What beautiful colors and great work. I love it!
  5. Hi Krys: I've too have been reading about the new booster coming out this Fall and it has promises of being stronger and lasting longer. We'll see. The 'Rona has hit hard in my county again with many new infected. The variants are being blamed, but also, reports are that 90% of the newly infected were NOT vaccinated so, that tells us something. It's very hard to sort out the truth from rumors. It sure is different from when I was a kid and had to have vaccines such as polio. We can only be diligent for ourselves and hope and pray this will get eradicated. Pineknott: I do hope the injectio
  6. For those that have worked with the Waffle Stitch: In your opinion, is it thick enough to prevent burning hands for a cotton potholder with 1 square or should it be made with 2 squares together using such as Peaches n' Creme yarn?
  7. It's always nice to have a selection so we can figure out what is best for us.
  8. LaceyHill: I'm so very sorry. My heart goes out to you with many prayers.
  9. I just watched Repeat Crafter Me on FB. Her info includes: RHSS will come in solids and the O'Go doughnut prevents yarn barf, plus, the same amount of yarn as the skeins.. Pricing from Yarnspirations will be about RHSS-$6, Bernat Blanket yarn-$12, Caron-$8. Retailers will probably have different pricing and not carrying all 4 brands at each store. Last but not least, this new invention of wrapping will not replace skeins as they will still be available. Hope this info helps. I will be trying at least one when it comes to town, if it comes to town.
  10. Granny square: My sentiments exactly. Brenda: I just tried the Yu-dc and didn't care for it. Too twisty to me and not as tall as a Yo-dc. Or maybe I'm just a plain old traditionalist. LOL
  11. I saw this on a few FB sites showing the RHSS and was intrigued. It will be okay for striped projects but, I don't make hardly any of those patterns. Now if they made it in the Ombre', that would pique my interest.
  12. Hey Gang! Talk about Dr's: I started calling my Dr's office last Friday to get 2 appointments changed to 1 and they finally got back to me just a few minutes ago. I'd change Dr's if we weren't so short on them. DD (the PA) told me some time ago for our population, we're 40 Dr's short to meet the needs and probably more now. 'Rona sure doesn't help. The hospital is to the max and then some. Rant over. Weather is strange. We usually have our hottest now and it's in the low 90's (not complaining). I'll take it! LOL Sounds like everyone is busy with different things. I sure hope all stay well
  13. Interesting list of goodies. There are a few things on there I'd love to have.
  14. Very cute! I like the big jiggly eyes on this one.
  15. For all these years I've crocheted, I've never used a Yarn Under sc, simply because it never occurred to me. I ran across this little video explaining the difference and thought some would be interested. I'm not sure I agree with her idea that you should always use a YO, not a YU. Maybe it should be a persons' personal preference, or, maybe that was how they were taught.
  16. Just checking in to say hello and hope all have a wonderful day. Not a lot on the weather front except some wind and a scattered shower. Sounds sort of boring really. Enjoy the day!
  17. No rain, lightning, thunder or drama yesterday. How about that? I don't know what the weather person was thinking when that was reported, saying 40% chance. Sounds like everyone is very busy. Me too. DD and I are getting the spare bedroom and bathroom cleaned and organized back to normal. DD2 will be here to visit sometime in October (hopefully). Mona: 70 miles- Whew, long trip for a renewal. Reminds me when I forgot to renew my (previous) car tags a few years ago. The state used to send out email reminders but I didn't get one, so, I forgot. It was taken care of real quick! LOL.
  18. If not the Drunken Granny stitch, then maybe the Tulip stitch. Another version of the Drunken Granny stitch (written and video).
  19. Hi All- I tried to post yesterday and got to almost the end of it to sign off and Poof! Gone in a flash. The whole post. I've had to contend with some major family drama this past week that is heartbreaking but, I'm feeling much better about it today. By the grace of God, it will get mended. The weather has been better here, especially for August. Unfortunately, it will be thunder, lightning and rain later this afternoon. I have a few chores planned for this afternoon before it rains. Deadhead the rose bushes and spray some weeds. That's about all I'm good for in the heat. LOL.
  20. I'll say it was a long time ago! I loved that program and miss the old variety shows.
  21. It looks like Filet crochet. Here's a video link for a FiIet Crochet Lace Shawl by Fiber Spider.
  22. Saw this on YouTube yesterday. Carol Burnett corrects the audience member that it's "Actually crocheted, not knit". I've included the link in case you would like to watch the episode from 1969. Funny!
  23. Yesterday's storm turned into another Haboob and did it ever pour! It hailed also and dropped to 63°F! It didn't flood my back yard this time though and my neighborhood didn't get all the dust previous to the downpour. More on the way this afternoon. Weird weather because we never had these powerful storms before in this area. This is Phoenix weather. After my wi-fi came back on last night I watched the last 4 episodes of "Paranoia" on Netflix while crocheting. It was suspenseful and entertaining. Love those British cop dramas. Take good care everyone and hope your day goes smoothly.
  24. I was just curious if you had a photo of the stitches that you made something from. Thanks anyway.
  25. What a cute idea. He'd be great in any little one's play kitchen.
