    I use scrap ends in the garden in the summer to tie up (hold up) my vegetables & flowers. I can match colors to the plants!!! Sometimes I take multiple longer pieces and chain them together for heavier veggies. They are very soft ties that don't hurt the stems. They work GREAT!!!!!
  4. Contact your local (and surrounding area) Senior Citizen Centers. They might have a crochet/knit group that would love to have yarn donated towards their projects. I know our Senior Center has such a group and they call themselves the "Happy Hookers". All donated yarn gets made into something and donated to the Abused Women's Shelter, Ronald McDonald House, Dialysis Center, Veterans Hospital, etc. There are many places they "work" for. They have made some georgeous things!!!
  5. Adorable!!! Hope you feel better soon!
  6. Hi Jessica- welcome to Crochetville. I am from Northern Virginia.
  7. So pretty and such a great charity to give to.
  8. I live alone now so I don't have to hide it anymore. In the past I did have to hide it at times.... my husband didn't understand that I needed more, a different color or even why I just wanted that particular yarn. I tried to make him understand that yarn was my addiction just as computer equipment was his. lol.
  9. Both blankets are beautiful!! You do beautiful work!!!
  10. Fantastic job!!! I always wanted to make one but just haven't been able to get there. Yours is definitely an inspiration. Love to see it finished !!!
  11. A beautiful shawl made with love - how wonderful. Prayers for you both.
  12. Stunning!!!! What a lucky couple to get this georgeous afghan!!! Your choice and placement of colors is spectacular.
  13. So nice!!! I am sure a child will get comfort from having such a lovely blanket!!! You do great work.
  14. Precious and so feminine!!! You do fabulous work!!
