A Few Things About Me

  1. that one is very pretty, i think it is one of my favotites you have done. I am like you I tend to get the winter blues but this has been the first year since I do not know when that I can not got them. we never really had winter. i mean yeah we got snow but either the same day or a couple days later we got rain and washed it all away. then we have beautiful sunny weather for a few days. like today for example. the sun is out and it feels like a nice spring day.
  2. I was over looking at the mary maxim site and fell in love with 2 afghans. but really hate to buy the kits as I prefer to use my own yarns. the 2 patterns are called Marcelle Afghan designed by Brenda Sampson Silver Medallion designed by Susan D. Kerin if you know somewhere else I can get these and just the patterns not the kits, I would appreciate it. Thanks
  3. i made a couple pairs of these last year. my BIL uses his as liners in his boots and loves them, he requested another pair this year but longer up the leg so they won't bunch at all in his boots. they bunch alittle now, nothing serious enough that he doesn;t still use them, lol
  4. I am working on some hats and they call for 2 strands of the same color for the main part of the hat. I am wondering what would be the alternative to useing 2 strands of worst weight? would 1 stand of bulky work? I want to use the same size hook that it calls for (6.5mm)
  5. love the bag, you going to make someones month with that yarn and tote.
  6. just curious what is the pattern called? you have me curious to check it out.
  7. i had this same sort of issue for the in-laws 50th anniversary. Did alot of googling and used a unique idea. the thing though it was for a 50th b-day and i just converted it over. the concept is simple. 50 gifts for 50 years. I did a book with a story and used gifts for key words. I made (crocheted, sewed, painted, scrapbooked, baked) all of them. main gift was a wedding ring afghan. was a blast doing. will be doing it again for my parents 50th. just an idea for you.

    the more you sew it together, the weight will help keep smoother.ii found only the octagons on the edges ruffle alittle. the ones inside smooth out

    i too read where people was having issues with it ruffling. They used different size hooks for the different motifs to help it lay flat. I did have ruffleing but it was very very minor so I was not overly concerned with it. i knew going into it could be an issue so I always keep adjusting my tension to compensate for it.
  10. i usually use RHSS and a size 4 hook, never had a problem with the yarn or stuffing. I have even done some in dark (brown and Black) colored yarns and have used white stuffing and i can't see the stuffing showing through the stitches,

    i made one of these recently and felt the same way you did, did not like how it was turning out. so i whip stitched it all together and loved it. now i just need to make another one for me.
