  1. Yes, we had the doilies and my grandmother had afghans on her couch. I have two of them. She had made the most beautiful lace tablecloth for her big table that sat 10. I wish I had that but I have no idea what happened to it.
  2. I've seen a lot of rug yarn at Hobby Lobby. But as far as patterns, no, haven't seen those. I always thought the rug yarn was for doing latch hook.
  3. I got that same thing about six weeks ago but I haven't tried it yet. Maybe after I get my holiday hooking done I'll give it a go.
  4. Hi from one Texas Lady to another. Welcome to the 'Ville.
  5. I think we all want to see that photo.
  6. That is one beautiful tote. I like to collect totes whenever I can. I do have one that holds a lot of my stuff but I also have others that have one project in each so that when I need something to take along, I know I can just grab a tote and I'm all set. No digging for the right size hook; no looking for the pattern that goes with a certain yarn; it's all there. My grandparents had one of those silver aluminum trees. They also had one of those color wheels with four colors on it that we would set in front of the tree and watch the silver change to blue to red to yellow to green. My fondest memories of Christmas were spent at my grandparents. I recall my next-to-last time with them very well. It was Christmas 1985 and my daughter, the first great-grandchild, was 10 weeks old. They were so proud of her and my grandfather just couldn't stop staring at her. He fell in love with her. The next Christmas, 1986, was so very different. My grandfather turned 80 on the 19th, passed away on the 22nd and his funeral was on the 24th, Christmas Eve. We really didn't know what to do that night or the next morning. My grandmother had Alzheimers and didn't really know who any of us were. All she knew was that every morning when she got up she would get her suitcase and wait for my grandfather to come pick her up so they could make the drive home (which was another state) for the holidays as he had gotten leave for the holidays. She was thinking it was the early 1940's, before my mom came along. I still think about them every year around this time as November 24th was their anniversary, and when they got married, it was Thanksgiving Day, just like it was this year.
  7. I prefer to pre-thread the beads. I especially find it easier if the different color beads go in a certain order. Sure it takes time to sort, count and thread, but in the long run it's faster once I start the project.
  8. Hmmm...I just made this hat last night but I found it on another site (a blog, actually) and the lady said that this is her own personal design. The date of the pattern listing on her blog is 5 years after the date of Pat's listed above. Coincidence? http://vallieskids.blogspot.com/2009/06/olivias-butterfly.html
  9. I first saw the Red Heart pound of yarn in Walmart during the summer but I haven't tried it yet. I do want to, though.
  10. Hi Aimee. I sent you an email. Welcome.
  11. You bet I will join you. I have been wanting to try socks for a long time. I think, though, I would prefer toe-up.
  12. Ha. My DH has the same problem. He's 35 and loves to play shuffleboard. The tabletop kind, not the big one on the ground such as on the cruise ships. He gets teased about playing an old man's game; then he says he plays table shuffleboard.
  13. I like that bag. I'm doing a tote bag with Caron's One Pound of yarn. It feels like it's going to be very sturdy without being stretchy. Hope this helps you out a bit.
  14. Usually one uses the the UFO's that have no hope of becomind FO's, or stuff that's worn out, like scarves and whatnot. Ummm...not that I would know personally, I've heard it whispered in the wind.
  15. Oh it's fun alright...I mean, so I've heard. We have that here where I'm at...allegedly (there have been whispers). There's even a group of gangsta knittas that tag internationally as well as in and around their home state. But I certainly would never do that...nosireebob...hooligans
