  2. Hi! I live in Long Beach, WA. We go to Longview, and Kelso shopping alot. I live almost on the ocean, love it here. I've been crocheting for a very long time, and I have a stash so large everyone says I could open my own yarn shop, I love yarn, the look of it the feel of it, and how it looks when I get the project finished. I have been teaching my daughter and my daughter in law. Carolyn

  5. /\I am so glad that I am in such good company, I had over 25 18 gal tubs all categorized in a notebook with little pieces of yarn to show what was in each tub, this my DH put in the attic for me, I could look at the book and see what yarn I had and decide which yarn for what pattern, BUT I couldn't touch it feel the power of the yarn. the call to make something with it, so my DH made shelves and more shelves in our downstairs, We have a large 3 story beach home that has the main living area on the second floor, a view room is the 3rd, and a couple of bedrooms laundry room (bath room, and garage on the ground floor. He got a Huge Closet type thing from some one, and made shelves in it for me. My stash is Huge my patterns all most as big I am making lots of presents for all of my daughters, and grandchildren, so I won't be depressed right now.
  6. Hi! Am I too late? If not I would love to get some of the crochet stuff. Just Let me know what you have left and how much. Carolyn
  7. Hi! I am now in the process of making this beautiful skirt, I'm making it in Berroco Lullaby in a pretty soft Lavendar gray, I will post pictures when it is done. That might be a while, I'm crocheting an Irish rose neckless for my soon to be daughter in law to wear at the wedding, and I am making kilts for the men in the wedding. Carolyn
  8. I hope you like it here, great crochet, and great people. Carolyn
  9. I just love your patterns, I've never really tried flowers before just about everything else, so now I am excited about crocheting flowers. Thanks for the great patterns. Carolyn
  10. Hi! you wouldn't belive the amount of patterns, mags and crochet books I have, some dating from the 20's & 30's. My DH loves to build things, so I have shelves for my books and fabric (sew to) I have a 4 drawer filling cab that I have all my crochet mags in, and some loose patterns, I have several 4in binders of patterns. I am trying to put the binders in order, the cabinet has been done for about a month now. I'm in the process of making my DD a shrug for her to wear to her winter ball (she is making the dress), and I'm making a ballet set and ballet shoes for my tiny 4 year old grand daughter, she wears size 2-3 in clothes. I just finisher her a poncho, and my other grand daughter that just turned 4 she wears a roung a size 5. I have been teaching my DD how to crochet and she is doing very well. Carolyn:c9
  11. Hi! I live in Long Beach in southwest WA. right on the coast, I'm an 1/8 of a mile from the ocean. We moved here 3 1/2 years ago from Bullhead City AZ. Carolyn:hook

    My name is Carolyn, I live on the Long Beach Peninsula, on the Western coast of WA. about an 1/8 of a mile to the Ocean. I've been crocheting for around 25-30 years, I tought myself and have inproved over the years. My DH has made me a knitting board, and a sock loom, so I can knit. I have trouble with the 2 needles because I have fibromyalgia and my hands and arms hurt most of the time, left is worst than the right so I can still crochet, I would have to lose my arms to stop I love it so much. I look forward to spending time with the great people on this forum. Carolyn:hook Try, try again but sometimes you just have to start over again.
