    I was looking for this year's swap schedule as well, but there is nothing posted. I really hope that they haven't eliminated the swaps.
  5. I have a special order project which requires a certain color yarn (ILTY cranberry) which I know is available online and hope to pick up at my local Hobby Lobby tomorrow, (The order needs to be completed by Wednesday.) The problem is that the reviews of this yarn in this particular color are poor due to excessive bleed which would ruin the project once washed. Would washing the yarn prior to using it prevent this? How can I wash an entire skein of yarn without getting huge knots? And can you dry acrylic yarn in a dryer? I have always laid flat to dry but I won't have time. Please help. :/

    Dammit Dolls

    I got an order the other day for a dozen Dammit Dolls crocheted in assorted colors for my sister to give her employees for stress relief. I have two done so far. This is my own pattern using cotton yarn and making each one a little different and special. Here are numbers 1 and 2.
  12. My cousin has stage 3 aggressive breast cancer and I am planning a local craft show fundraiser. Although I have participated in previous craft shows, I have never done anything like this before. I am looking for any and all advice and also for opinions on good craft show items that I can make a lot of rather quickly. We are hoping to be renting spaces to other crafters, but I really want to have my own booth there as well. Any and all thoughts will be most appreciated. Oh, and the show is planned for the 27th of September giving me about 7 weeks to prepare. Thanks.

    I am back after a nice long break(life has been hectic) and I wanted to share the final picture of all 12 of these little guys and gals. I was quite happy with the way they turned out.

    I'm sorry they are sideways. For some reason when I post from my phone they always turn out that way.

    Amigurumi Swap--Swapping

    Becky I am so glad you and Purcy liked the package. I really wanted to give you a monster and a mythical creature. The three headed dog seemed perfect but honestly he almost didn't make it. His heads gave me fits for some reason.

    Those Crochetville bags are made by Tampa Doll. She makes one each month and gifts it to a lucky Crochetville member thereby creating a sort of "Bag Lady club". Mine was her 97th bag. :-)
