  1. Thanks for the link HomekeepingGran. I am on my third washcloth. I had hit a slump in my crocheting. Now crocheting washcloths seems to have taken me out of the slump.

  2. DebraKay I have a Jimbo hook size K. I just love it. He is the best.
  3. I will be 59 in June and have been crocheting since the mid 70s. Up until about 1992 I mostly made granny square afghans.

  5. My mom and oldest sister taught me how to crochet back in the late 1970's. But for years all I would make were granny square afghans. Not afghans made up of small granny squares but ones that were one big granny square. Finally in the very early 90's I began to try to read and crochet from a pattern. I had some help from my sister but by that time I had moved away (3 hours away) from my sister so it was just during visits when she could help me. Also she was terminally ill with cancer at this time. I think deep in my heart I knew she wouldn't be around much longer to help me. She not on
