  1. I believe MM is Move Marker. Also - there is a list of abreviations here: http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=99545
  2. I was about 100 (by about 90 wide) rows into a filet piece and frogged the entire thing because the sides weren't lining up. I've yet to attempt the piece again because of the distractions with my almost 2 year old!
  3. Wow, that is really incredible! I think I should make one for my daughter who is just going to be 2 now but might come in handy when she's learning all of the states in school!
  4. Thanks for posting - my father in law has wanted one of these forever and I didn't know where to start! I'll definitely be using your pattern for an x-mas gift this year!
  5. I think you did a great job! It looks awesome.
  6. I love your blanket and would love the pattern as well when you get it. I just started doing entrelac and I'm hooked!
  7. Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I've actually tried marking the pattern, covering the rows up and the safety pins. I'll try again in a few years when I can concentrate more on it. Hopefully my toddler will be more independent then and let mommy work on her crochet!
  8. Hi all, I'm was working on a fairly large filet crochet piece. It's about 150 squares tall by 90 squares wide. What I'm having a hard time with is keeping track of where I'm at/counting. I started once going from side to side. Then I turned the graph sideways and worked the long side first. I got to about 30 rows and then found I was "off". I really didn't want to "fudge" the mistake so I ripped out to the error but have gotten discouraged and haven't picked it up since (about a month now). Do you think it would be okay to "split" the graph and work 2 halves and then whip stitch it together? It's a portrait of a well known person but I'm not sure how this will look. Maybe I will have to give up working on such a large piece with a toddler running around that throws off my concentration. But your thoughts would be appreciated on what I can do.
  9. I started with these: http://www.crochetmemories.com/archive/misc16.html http://www.crochetmemories.com/archive/february5.html It shows pictures of what your's should look like along the way and the directions were really clear.
  10. That is really pretty - I think I need to put all my projects away and just crochet snowflakes for my x-mas tree this year!
  11. Those are just beautiful. I have the book to do this but haven't attempted it yet.
  12. that is really really pretty!
