  1. Anybody else watch Clean Sweep, the cable show about decluttering one's home? The organizer (a male BTW, who probably isn't a "Crochet Dude" ) says he frequently encounters people who "horde" books and people who "horde" yarn. I'm guilty on both fronts. Only I think of it as a planning ahead, and having books and yarn on hand, not hoarding. I'm trying to crochet down some of my stash, and recycle already-read books, but still...lots of tubs of yarn, and shelves full of books.
  2. Hello, and a warm welcome from Southern California.
  3. Hi, and welcome, from Southern California. I haven't had much luck with chenille as a fringe. The texture just isn't right. I end up making a crochet edge for my chenille scarves, You might play around with a long picot or something similar, and see how you like the look.
  4. Hello, and welcome from soggy Southern California. You will enjoy this site!
  5. Welcome, from soggy Southern California. The half-double chain one pattern works well for a baby blanket, if you use two strands and a P hook. It makes a soft and pretty blanket.
  6. Welcome, Myra, from another Southern California crocheter. You designs are wonderful. Love the dog coat, but my macho mutt wouldn't allow it!
