    How many of you are from NY

    I'm in Rochester NY and would love to join some people for some crochet fun!! Some suggestions-- Wegman's food court on Monroe Avenue in Pittsford, NY, possibly a library room... Any other suggestions? Any weekday evenings work for me

    Crochet Towel Rings

    I'm looking for a pattern that I found about 5 years ago for a towel ring that held a kitchen towel. It had two rings that were crocheted around with #3 thread and the towel would be held weaving it in the two rings.... This might be confusing but I know I had a pattern just like this.. Help?!?

    I've made some thread crochet rings and they don't seem to have lasting quality. Has anyone used resin with their crochet?

    Freeform Flower

    I hope this works! Okay, here is one of the more organized pieces that I've finished. I hope you enjoy! There are more of my pieces on my Flickr account.

    My first freeform piece (WIP)

    That's the fun of free-form!! You can do whatever you want and what you make is yours. Isn't it fun to try something different?

    I'm trying to make a 3-d thread piece really stiff and I'm having difficulties. I bought some spray from Michael's and I'm not satisfied with the results... thoughts?

    Cotton Thread Anyone?

    If you check my profile, I have one of my pieces on display. Also, I have some pictures on Flckr now but I don't remember how to get there... I always use crochetcynde as my name if that helps

    Argh.... I'm sometimes like that. I'm only on the computer on Tuesday thru Friday, so I don't always get all the info. Please contact me by email if you would like. I go by the same name at yahoo.com We'll keep trying. Let's keep in touch this week to make a future game plan. Weekends are sometimes hard for me but if we plan in advance, I should be able to get the car. Thoughts?

    Freeform inspiration!

    Let me map out the 16 hours cuz it really was too spectacular... I was home by 3pm and crocheted until 3 am. I was up by 9 am and crocheted until 10pm that night. I took breaks when I needed to take care of the body and my bottom did get numb a couple of times but it was truly one of those "in the zone" moments when the crochet takes over. I took a picture of the flower and other freeforms to show sometime this week.

    Calling Buffalo NY crocheters

    I always "google" yarn shops with the city/state that way you might get some of the privately owned companies.

    I'm game. Lets make a serious plan. I can meet most days after 4 pm. Weekends are not good for me as my significant other works and has the car. BUT I encourage everyone to meet whenever. I'm off work this week and have Wednesday and Thursday afternoon off. I might have to car on Friday too.
