  1. As a cancer patient who went thru the hair loss last year, I preferred a very soft yarn- a fitted cap nothing floppy. My hair loss was during the winter, so I actually slept with a hat on when I was completely bald. I preferred a slightly open stitch for around the house, but a solid stitch when out in public (I had surgery on the back of my head to remove a tumor and have a large scar. The radiation of the area left a big bald spot around the scar even after the rest of the hair started growing in). And I preferred that they come to just past my natural hairline so that "fuzz" that starts to grow in doesn't show. Just my personal preferences.

    Some new afghans

    Hi Everyone! These are 2 afghans I made recently, What do you think? This one is for my granddaughter Kylie, she is 7 This one is for her brother Eli, he is 5
  3. Hi Everyone, I need some advice on brands/types of crochet thread. My daughter is getting married in July and she wants me to make a garter for her. I occasionally crochet with thread, mostly doilies, but I just use whatever WalMart has in the color I want.......I want something soft and smooth with a nice sheen for her garter, size 10 thread, and I need it in a "light ivory" color to match her gown. I have no problem ordering it on line if I need to, I just don't really know what brand or type to go with. Anyone have any suggestions, or can you recommend a good online shop to check out?
  4. I agree with Granny Square, my large squares do the same thing- they start to look "tilted". I have also resorted to turning after each row, it keeps the square from distorting as it grows. I made a granny square poncho for my granddaughter once, and the front "point" started leaning to one side, so I frogged it and re-stitched it turning after each row and it came out perfectly straight.

  6. I had that problem also, and as with some of the others that answered you, my problem was on the single crochet black rounds. After much trial and error (and hair pulling and frogging!!) I found that using the next size larger hook for ONLY the single crochet black rounds worked perfectly- I guess my tension is different with the 2 different stitches. After I switched it up it laid nice and flat.
  7. That is absolutely lovely! Your work is always beautiful.
  8. Hi Everyone, I am looking for the lace and bobble afghan pattern. In another post I read that it is in a Leisure Arts book called Afghans for All Seasons, however there are quite a few different ones on Amazon, such as book 2, book 3, etc. Could someone tell me which one it is in? I would love to make it! Thanks a bunch, Nunu
  9. They're both very nice- good job! Nunu
  10. Thanks for all your nice comments- They're very appreciated. As far as the colors, I'm sorry the wrappers are long gone, but I do remember that I used all Red Heart super saver, and bought it all at WalMart, if that helps.
  11. Hi Everyone, Well I finally created the Photobucket account I've been promising myself- so now I can stop "lurking" and participate more. I made this RR a while ago based on Aggie's pattern that she shared with me. What do you think? thanks, Nunu
  12. They're both very pretty. Where did you find the patterns for the squares? I have been looking for a "flat" flower square, the one you used looks perfect for what I have in mind.
  13. Great job, it looks beautiful. The very first doily I ever made was with yarn- I was afraid of thread back then, and had only made scarves and afghans before that. So I figured I'd learn 1 step at time. I still have that doily, it's under a planter.
