    Question about filling "holes" in baby blanket??

    While the pom pom idea sounds like it would look cute, I'd be concerned about one coming loose somewhere down the line and becoming a choking hazard. I'd fill them in with something that is crocheted on so it would never pull loose. Joan

    Special Olympics

    Thank you sooo much, ladies! I've been wanting to crochet some scarves for this cause, and have searched 2 Joann's, AC Moore and Michael's. None of them carried the Delft Blue color. I even called Coats & Clark Consumer Relations, and they were less than helpful or sympathetic. I don't usually shop at Walmart's but went there today after reading this thread. Yes! There it was! Delft Blue! I bought 3 skeins, and 3 of the white. Gonna get started right now! Joan

    Christian's Tuxedo

    I was at the fashion show in Manchester, and Christian really stole the show! We were hysterical when he jumped off the runway and kept right on modeling. He's totally adorable! JoanB
  5. For smaller items such as bags, baby items, etc., I use a piece of poster board as a background. I have the boards in white, black and gray and choose one depending on the color of the item. I try to use natural light... either in the shade by the side of my house, or just inside a glass door. I sometimes try also adding flash to the natural light. I try different exposures and then pick the best one when I upload to my computer. Good luck! Joan

    Solomon's Knot

    I've made lots of scarves using Solomon's Knot... here's one: I've also done a Mobious Shawl and the triangular shawl from Garn Studio. YOu can control how lacy the look is somewhat by the size of yarn and by the length you make each stitch. Joan
  8. If you combine the 'fuzzy' yarn with a regular yarn, it is much easier to work with. Also, it helps if you use a very large hook. If you want that fuzzy look, you'll have to use an appropriate yarn. Joan
