    since I was 7
  1. I REALLY like this pattern. Can't wait to make one.
  2. I love making dishclothes too! Yours are all very pretty! Do you use only cotton? I prefer them in arcylic but cotton is always what the patterns call for.
  3. cris...love the toe coasters! Being a coffee addict and a fellow germaphobe I think they're a great idea!
  4. cshort...Love the dolls clothes..what yarn did you use? It's looks so soft and comfy!
  5. thank you, thank you! I'm really happy with how he turned out. My plans were to recreate his face, but I think I like him this way. The face is what I didn't like about the original creation. I may play with him and see though. Thanks again!
  6. Here is my finished snowman. I initially used a drawstring bag pattern but when that didn't work, I went out on my own. That was my first attempt at ever going without a pattern. It isn't a complicated pattern, just a lot of increasing and decreasing with a single crochet stitch. It's all one piece over a 2 liter bottle that was lightly covered with polyfill. The jacket, hat, and scarf came with him as he was gifted to me (as a felt body). I intend to redo his scarf and possibly try his jacket and hat.
  7. Ok..I've finally decided...I'm making a snowman using a 2 liter bottle as the center. I'm redoing this project as it was a gift from my Gramma a few years ago in felt. The felt is looking shabby so I'm redoing the body and scarf. I have two, but I haven't decided yet if I want to tackle the second. I initially began this project using a drawstring purse pattern, but it didn't work out as planned so I've since been working without any pattern....wish me luck!
  8. Hello!!!...also from PA...Jefferson County.
  9. Anyone use large doilyghans, round ripples, or granny squares as a tablecloth? I have a (store-bought) crocheted tablecloth that I get so many compliments on. I have minimal experience with thread. I've only made a couple snowflakes. Quite honestly the thought of doing any big project in thread completely turns me off because I just don't have the patience. I had originally thought of making a granny square motif tablecloth with cooridinating colors of my kitchen, but researched a little and found a few other ideas. I would use either sock yarn or fingering yarn. Any advice or thoughts would be appreciated
  10. IMANURSE55....I saw that calendar this morning...do you like it??? My MIL bought me a bookstore gift certificate for Christmas. I love patterns!
  11. Have you tried this site? http://www.microrevolt.org/knitPro/
  12. That is an adorable afghan. You have a lucky BFF
  13. Thank you for the help,unfortunately I think most of my older yarns are acrylic. Oh well on a recent trip to Michael's I saw they had a ton of great colors in Peaches N Cream...not like our local Walmart that only has 4 colors.
  14. Oh my, how beautiful! She is one lucky lady!!
