  1. Sticking my nose in from the Worcester/Millbury line. How is everyone?
  2. Hi Julia Thank you for the beautiful squares! http://knits4charity.blogspot.com/2011/10/12-squares-from-julia-crochetville.html Have a great day Beth
  3. Its expensive. I shop the sales and can get yarn to join a blanket for about $5.00. It cost at least $10, sometimes $15 to send a single blanket. I now have a "team" helping me join blankets (I can't do this myself) and it cost the same amount to ship squares and yarn to them as it does to send a blanket to a Veteran. So, right now, its costing me about $30 per blanket if I have to send it to my "team"
  4. Hi Brenda (bgs) I received your squares and donation toward postage costs! Thank you so much! Beth
  5. Need your help. I am working on a blanket for a very special female Veteran who needs some love. I am about 3/4 done and want to put together a small "care package" to go with this. If anyone has anything they can send to include with it, no matter how small, please message me. I think she really needs to know she is loved and appreciated.
  6. WE STILL NEED SQUARES!!! Just a reminder - WE STILL NEED SQUARES!!! There are now FOUR people assembling blankets so they are being used up FOUR times as fast! If you are able to send squares, and/or yarn to join them, and/or postage for shipping (as little as 25 cents for each square you send would be AWESOME!) please email me for an address
  7. Hi Cindy (CynCyn) I received your squares and posted pictures to the blog for the ENTIRE world to see! http://knits4charity.blogspot.com/2011/07/14-squares-from-cindy-h-crochetville.html Aren't they beautiful everyone??? Thanks again!
  8. That is the correct video. I do the SC round before I start the flat braid so the sc round and the flat braid round are the same color. Do 3 sc in each corner and 1 sc in each DC. I can't open the link in your 2nd post. Are you on Facebook?
  9. There is a youtube video (1 of 3) near the bottom of this page (which also has the pattern). Make and join about 4 squares, in a square - not a line - and send to me I would like to see the finished product. This is for anyone who is interested in doing this. Flat Braid Join can be a challenge at first so don't get frustrated if you don't get it right away - keep trying. You will find it to be quite enjoyable once you get the hang of it. Let me know when your ready for my address. Oh, and with the new team of "joiners" we are assembling, we will be needing more squares!
  10. I am officially looking for people to help me join afghans. I haven't quite figured out how it will work (financially) but I can't do this alone. If you are willing to help, please let me know. I prefer blankets to be joined with the flat braid join but I am willing to entertain other ideas. I will be asking you to send me a sample of your handiwork so I can insure our Veterans get the best of the best and all finished blankets will be sent to me. Thats all I have for details so far.
  11. Thank you It was beginning to be like organizing a part time business. I'm glad to have more time to crochet Beth
  12. Thank you, CynCyn. I will let you know when I receive them. I have stopped mailing the personal thank-you's because I got many people saying "I don't need that!". I thought it was a nice touch but I guess it wasn't necessary. Oh well... more time for hookin' right? Have a great day - and thanks again! Beth
  13. Thank you Janni. I also post them to the blog - http://knits4charity.blogspot.com/ Thank you for helping with the "needs" list. Have a great day! Beth
  14. Hi Janni I received your package this week and have posted your picture to the blog/facebook Thank you very much - they are beautiful!!! I love the colors you chose Have a great day! Beth
  15. Hi Everyone I just wanted to let everyone know that this week we received some beautiful squares from Crochetville! Cheryl S and Melody P each sent in packages and their squares can be seen here: http://knits4charity.blogspot.com/ Thank you all for helping to make this such a successful project in such a short time! Beth
  16. Thank you Janni! I'll let you know when I receive them Go read the latest post on FB - we have another family project coming up. Family of 4 1/2 (baby on the way!) Have a Safe and Happy 4th!
  17. Your not bothering me at all! Variegated yarns are welcome. Thank you for asking Happy Hooking! Beth
  18. I just figured out how to upload pictures direct from my phone to the blog. Be sure to check it out - knits4charity.blogspot.com (I don't know why I called it "knits" for charity- I might eventually change it since I am clearly a "hooker!" lol!) I uploaded a bunch of pictures of finished blankets today and plan to upload pictures of squares as they come in and blankets as I finish them from now on. ENJOY! Beth
  19. It was Crochetville Day at my house! I received packages from Mary, Liz and Cindy! Thank you so much!!!
  20. I did not receive yours yesterday. I bet the mailman just couldn't carry all the packages. They will probably arrive tomorrow.
  21. I'm not sure if you guys can see this without being a Facebook member but here is a picture of the blanket I finished last night. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=223099474380954&set=a.206546986036203.52773.203898552967713&type=1&theater I thought you might enjoy seeing it.. Beth
