  1. I only do it with the thread intended for snowflakes because I carry a strand of irridescent lurex with it for sparkle. The thread I use for doilies and other projects don't get wound.
  2. I have that book but have not made anything from it yet. I've had that one marked for some time now. It's beautiful Mary!
  3. Beautiful Lori, just beautiful!! As said before, I'm going to have to make that one for sure.
  4. Beautiful! You're like me, those picots drive you nuts but you can't imagine the doily without them. Great job!
  5. How pretty! Clothespin angels have been on my list of things to do for a very long time but I've not yet gotten started on them. I really like these!!
  6. Very nice!! I love the bright color.
  7. That is beautiful! I need to do a wheat doily and soon, I love that one!
  8. Try this one and this one, both are really well written, easy patterns that give great results. Before, after or during, check out this site for EXCELLENT tips on working with thread for snowflakes, doilies, or any other project. I love snowflakes!!
  9. Yep, they're all clearanced out. I managed to get two skeins of the navy blue I needed to finish my afghan thank goodness.
  10. Usually the person coordinating will specify what type of yarn to use, or at least they should. I ask to be sure before starting just to be safe if I can't find it noted anywhere, but it definitely can be different for each comfortghan requested.
  11. The maximum image size allowed here at Crochetville is 480x360 pixels. Any image larger than maximum size will be linked by the Administrators or Super-Moderators, mainly with respect for people on dial-up connections. This is listed in the Rules. We also have posted Tips on how to resize images for your convenience. If you have posted a large picture and find we have linked it for you, you can edit your post with a resized image.
  12. Because I'm guessing we're going to get a fair number of responses, I'm going to move your suggestions to my first post (so they'll be there and easy for all to see). Feel free to yell out if I've got something wrong, okay?
  13. A trick post! After a studied consideration I thought it would be a good idea to post and request some ideas that can be made into a basic reference section for the comfortghans. Those of you that have made squares and received them for joining probably have a lot more ideas than I would on what should go into such a section so I'm asking for suggestions. The first few things I have are: ~ Always tie in ends on donated squares - it causes a lot of work to the person receiving the squares for joining. ~ Identify the stitcher of the squares - this should include name, Crochetville u
  14. Any website that is offering to sell ... not just share between friends, but sell ... copies of this booklet/afghan pattern is asking for more legal trouble than they want to handle, and if Annie's Attic gets wind of it they'll be some mighty unhappy people. Folks may share patterns privately (and a lot of us do) but openly violating copyright laws by selling something owned by someone else is about as silly as shoplifting in front of a cop IMHO Three cheers and thank you to dhaunae!! I couldn't have said it any better myself!
