  2. Pam, sounds like a lot of fun. And you displayed admirable restraint in what you purchased. LOL
  3. Nice! Anything with chickens on it reminds me of my grandmother.
  4. Hello from Mississippi! We love to see pictures of projects.
  5. Pretty! I like that stitch pattern. Thanks for sharing it.
  6. I've had a moderate amount of crochet time this week, but when you're working with 15 colors in a blanket all used pretty equally, there's no progress until the end. I'm two thirds of the way thru the two rows per color repeats. About to the point of deciding if I want it as long as the pattern or if it's time to stop. I have gotten a downstairs closet partly cleaned out and moved some of the yarn totes from upstairs to their new home. The boys are giving me a tv for my birthday and that requires some rearranging to get the old one out and the new one in. Good motivation to get things rea
  7. I haven't looked at any of these, but here's what came up on a google search: https://www.google.com/search?q=c2c+video+tutorial&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS791US791&oq=C2C+vid&aqs=chrome.2.69i57j0l2j0i22i30j0i10i22i30j0i22i30l5.16004j0j15&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 Or from a crochet site: https://www.mooglyblog.com/corner-to-corner-crochet-c2c/ https://theunraveledmitten.com/2020/04/07/corner-to-corner-crochet-stitch-video-tutorial/ It's one of those stitches that once you get it, it's not hard.
  8. Good morning! Cindy, your Sophie is gorgeous! I love the colors. This week has been paperwork and sinus infection. I was supposed to have the grands today while DIL went to the dentist but she's under the weather too and had to reschedule. Not sorry about the change since my energy is still lacking and the antibiotics are causing the usual stomach issues. We're headed into a week of cooler weather, but I'm not complaining. Hope spring lasts quite a while and doesn't jump into summer too quickly. Hoping for some crochet time today.

  11. Hello from Mississippi! Probably top on the list for edges not being straight is to make sure you aren't missing or adding stitches on each row. Always count your stitches at the end of the row to make sure it's the same number. I'm pretty sure this has been addressed at more length in the help section. If it doesn't seem to cover what you are looking for, you can post a picture there of your work and someone may have suggestions on what's going wrong.
  12. Cindy, so sorry to hear your BIL is having a hard time. Hope the chemo will work without being too bad. Sophie's garden has been on my wish list for a long time, but it's a big project. The colors have always intimidated me. Brenda, hopefully y'all can be fishing in the lake soon. Glad your groups are starting back. It's a little scary to start being with people again, but I really think if we are careful about it and use reasonable precautions, things can get back to "normal". Judy, wow, how pretty! Love the colors! We had storms again last night. Seems like this year we c
