A Few Things About Me

  • Real name
  • Short bio
    I've lived in MI, WV, MD, and now NC. I have 2 married daughters, a married son and 7 Grand Ones. Now that I can't travel to visit family and places, I've focused on completing items for those mentioned above as well as hope chests for any Great Grand Ones that may come. I'm pretty well versed in computer applications and save patterns. I'm an avid reader (now on eBooks)and usually work on a crochet project as I watch my TV programs.

  • Crocheting since...
  1. I think it is disgusting that someone would do that. I always make sure the designer's name is in the pattern document. If it is in PDF format, I make an extra Word document so I can record the designer's name and link. I design patterns for the fun of it and share them. I've recently read where people are "hijacking" designs and think it is as disgusting as hacking.
  2. I Googled crochet farm animal patterns and came up with several links. This looked like a good one. http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/directory/farm_animals.php
  3. You are welcome. I look forward to seeing the finished product.
  4. This is beautiful. Being a "golden girl" I would worry about using it for a rug. A wall hanging might be unique though. Anyhow, I copied the photo and the image ran the whole left side of the page. The site will not let you copy or save the image. Your best bet is to print page one of the web site. I copied/pasted the text before and after the image to see if it would provide more info. Google for a FREE translater (which Babylon WAS NOT). I agree with REAL DEAL about the patterns being relatively simple. I've been crocheting since the early 1970s and fully understand how "math becomes art" -- even if "fine artists" call it crafts. The easiest to describe would be the center which is a large six-pointed star. Four more are different variations on the center star. An internet search will turn up several patterns -- probably in the form of Christmas Tree Ornaments. You may also find the circle/spokes pattern there. You will need a lot of markers to know where to place the star points or spokes. I buy a card of brown/gold and black/silver bobby pins. (Yes, they do still sell them @ Walmart and beauty supply stores.) That way, I can track my beginning stitch and mark where I'm doing something to create the shape. Good luck and enjoy.
  5. It would be simpler to Google "ripple crochet baby afghan patterns." There are a lot of them out there. I often make mine wider than the 32" or 36" size. I prefer them to be 42" wide. I also make blankets more than afghans. They are easier to wrap.
  6. I find these fascinating and hope to find some way to use them. In obsessing on creating a Maltese cross in crochet thread, I ended up researching crosses from different countries and eras. I found an excellent Celtic cross with the Kells inside them. Hopefully, I'll find time to experiment with it (and hope I don't lose what is left of my mind!!).
  7. pallietx: I Googled and found it on Ravelry. You might have to have free memberships to Ravelry and Facebook get to it. I have both so was able to get to it. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sweetie-the-snowflake https://www.facebook.com/groups/379329545500832/383074201793033/ CindySweetThings: This is so sweet. Thank you for sharing. I've had the Sweetie Snowflake patterns since you designed it, but never tried it. I think it will be perfect for the hallway door of my apartment. Thank you again.
  8. I just went through my folder of Alphabet patterns. I'm a little obsessive, so I've turned most of them into Word documents from the jpegs. The alphabet pillows (and cross) are all in pdf format so they would have to be sent individually. Here are the links I've checked. The Annie's Attic patterns are sold out. The pamphlet was Monogram and Lace Bookmarks and sold for $9.95. I didn't see a pamphlet number on it. Maybe you could email her and ask her to publish them again or look for them on eBay or Amazon. I made myself a back up copy. http://www.learn-how-to-crochet.com/monogram.html http://www.learn-how-to-crochet.com/child.html http://www.mooglyblog.com/the-moogly-crochet-alphabet/ Alphabet Block Pillows by Kimberly Lewis After Googling, I found this link that has a few. A free membership to Ravelry will let you download the pdfs http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/alphabet-pillows The only other pattern is one by Susan Kranz, 1982, that I purchased. I made myself a backup, so I've never searched to see if it is online. Happy Hooking
  9. I love it. I'll bet an afghan made of that would be gorgeous.
  10. Love this pattern. I created my own pattern worked in Red Heart Team Spirit yarn for my Granddaughter. I made the scarf on the website then made an earwarmer (side-to-side) to match it. Later I worked the pattern in circular form such as this. I only make mine about 4 inches wide so it will fit under the hair. I made one for my sister a couple of years ago, but she wanted a sc strip to go under her hair. Guess we olders just aren't "hip" enough to handle style. :-D
  11. That is lovely. I've got several yarns that might work. Thank you for sharing this pattern.
  12. I would just take a 60 inch scarf pattern, adjust it to the length necessary for the girls (?? 48 inches??). After you finish it, make squares the same width and as high as you want them for their hands. It might be nice to tuck in a pair of fingerless gloves. They make up quickly. My granddaughters LOVE them.
  13. I made one about 20 years ago for a friend's bridal shower. She was a redhead and was really embarrassed. The rest of us got a laugh out of it. I don't know about her then husband.
  14. Another site has upper and lower case letters. I tried to post the link but I think are are too many hypens (-) in the URL. It is Learn how to crochet.com. When typing in the web address put a hyphen between each word from Learn to crochet. Once there, scroll down the list to Monogram Crochet.
