  1. That happened at our Prayer Shawl Ministry--they weren't handing the prayer shawls out! So we just started donating them to some of the local nursing homes! The ladies (and some guys!!) are really thrilled with them!!!
  2. Welcome to the Ville, Sara! Glad to have you join us!!
  3. Since my computer hasn't been well since, well--for a long time!---I haven't been able to catch up with everyone here!! So-o-o-o....what is this "snow globe" you're all talking about?
  4. As usual, I will be making lap ghans for the military hospitals, and prayer shawls for our local Hospice. Along with that, I'll be making whatever strikes my fancy I pick up my crocheting every time I sit down, and, at my age, I "sits" a lot!!! We (my crochet club, "Froggers", and I )sell at whatever craft shows we can get to, so we make a little bit of everything! As you can probably tell--I LOVE to crochet!!!!
  5. Welcome!! We're glad you joined us!!
  6. ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE!!!!!!
  7. So sorry to hear about your foot!!! How many weeks (or months) will you be down with that??!! Here's hoping it will heal quickly!!!🤞
  8. THAT'S quite a beautiful feat!!! It sure took a lot of planning!
  9. Our Thanksgiving was VERY nice! We took our next-door neighbor out for dinner--she's such a super neighbor! Of course--we ALL overate!
  10. At the beginning of Row 2, where it says "Ch 3 counts as dc)"--so the turning chain is the 3rd chain in that Ch-3. That's where you put your 3 dc.

    Circle is janky

    It IS expanding too fast. You need to start with 6 dc. Then make 2dc in each of the 6 dc. In the next row, increase by making 1 dc in each of the next 2 dc, then 2 dc in the third st. Continue to increase each round by 6 evenly spaced dcs in each row.
  12. Did your pattern not mention the size hook?
