    I don't even remember if I signed up for this or not!! If I did, I sure haven't been faithful in posting!!! I've been using up LOTS of skeins and pieces of skeins, making Warm Shoulders Cape-lets these last two weeks! My Crochet Club meets at a local Assisted Living home every Friday morning, and I took in a couple of the cape-lets to see if anyone would like them. Well!! Since I did that two weeks ago--I've made 8 of them!! The last 3 were just dropped off last weekend, so I don't know if they've been snatched up yet, or not. Man! If I'd known they would go over THAT well, I'd have been making them before this! Well--to the count of skeins of yarn--since I used up remnants for all these, I just have to figure how many skeins I used by how much it takes to make 1. It takes about 14 to 16 oz for one, so I'd guess I've used up somewhere between 112 oz to 128 oz!! Sounds good like that, doesn't it??!!

    Does anyone know the name of this pattern?

    Yes, Lahonda--that is the pattern. I've made several, and have even shortened the patterns to make shawls, just by not making as many repeats. I LOVE the pattern! Have fun!

    This is not a selling site. However there are several sites online where you can sell your crochet. Maybe someone else can suggest a good selling site.

    Does anyone know the name of this pattern?

    Yes, but I'll have to locate it! I think it's called "Diamond Trellis"!!

    I can really relate to WIPS being out of control!!!!! I went through only 10 of my bags of yarn and miscellaneous today--and MOST of them were more UFOs than yarn!!! I really need to get this under control!!!!

    Hi-back at 'ya, Mary! Did you get to crochet last night? My Crochet Club had its regular meeting this morning, and I am close to getting yet another prayer shawl done! Yay! I'll be able to take 4 or 5 in to the Hospice Monday! Then I can box up a couple of boxes of lap afghans for the Veterans' hospitals over the weekend. Maybe that will give me a little more room!

    Hey Y'all!

    Welcome back to the 'Ville!! Before I retired, almost 10 years ago, I was an Aide to a boy with Autism. So I can relate with you about this. God bless you!

    When my hubby went into the hospital (out of town) a couple of years ago, I took yarn with me and crocheted every day (for a week)---while sitting on the register cover in his room!! When my back would be about to give out, I'd take it to the visitors room down the hall for a rest. But--to my personal credit--I finished my project while there, and started another one!! (Personal pat on the back!!!)

    Crochet the V or the V+Bar?

    Just a note to Granny Square--in reference to the sizes being "worn off" on your hooks: I bought an etching pen (for other craft projects) and found out that it is great for marking the sizes on my hooks!! (I sometimes put tape on the flattened part of the finger grip part if my hands are getting sore--after too much crochet without a rest!!-and that covers up the size!) I etch the size on the end of the hook--that way it doesn't wear off! My Mom used to "jury-rig" things all the time, so I guess I get that honestly!
