    Finally...here is the wishlist for the Hope Center For Women in Nashville. I have donated several baby blankets to them. They are always very appreciative. I spoke with the director and this is what she said they need the most. Baby blankets-- they put a baby blanket in each new mother gift bag. Hats and booties Non crochet related Extra large to XXX large maternity clothes New born diapers and size 1 diapers Size 6 diapers Johnson and Johnson baby products<-- they put these in the gift bags too. PM me for my address

    "Felted Crochet" book at Barnes and Noble

    I'm interested it that! Thanks for telling us about it. I have been frustrated by all the knitting/felting books too.

    I am the one who asked that the Hope Center for Women be listed for August. The one I support is in Nashville,TN I have not heard back from them as to specifics but I donate baby blankets to them. I'm sure they would love anything for a new baby. I'll try to post there specific wish list the first of the week. Barbara

    I'll be mailing off my March items this week some time. I only have 4 items 2 scarves and 2 hats. I plan to make more for this charity through out the year. I have lots of yarn that will work well for scarves. I just did not have the time this month.

    Stitch Question

    I agree with Carovan. It means to pick up the back loop of the top of the stitch. I do not think it is the Back post stitch. That abbreviation is bpdc.

    Darski, I am glad you said that. I will only have 3 sets to mail out next week. It is not nearly as many as I thought I would send. I have much more yarn I had planned to use for scarves and hat sets. So I think I will send the 3 sets I have finished and as I am between other projects this year I will make more and send later. I'll be sure and post here what I am sending.

    I haven't tried the pattern you are using for the slippers, but I have made slippers for myself in the past using 2 strands of Red heart and a K hook. I love them! They are very warm and get softer once you wash them.

    can you give us a link to the pattern so we can see what you are talking about?

    I agree with Dawn. The chain 4 counts as a DC and a chain 1 THEN do the Cluster.
