  1. These seem to be a novelty item. The glow in the dark hooks pop up with different brands for a brief time and then disappear. The lighted hooks as mentioned do seem to have more of a staying power in the hook market. If you are really stuck on finding them you are probably going to have to look at secondary markets.

  9. Looks beautiful. This isn't one of Darski's but she has many amazing patterns that have helped us all over the years it's easy enough to think it might be one of hers.
  10. I can't wait to see this afghan!!! Also thrilled about the doll. Yours are always so beautiful!!

  13. Doll Diaper Bag Items The doll diaper bag items are done for the year!! Still have to figure out what I'm going to do for the bags but that's for another day. My F hook wandered off mysteriously so I'm hoping to hit Hobby Lobby tomorrow as they carry the metal hooks with the bamboo handles. It's so nice not to have to order them online. They have their own brand but so far I haven't had a problem with them and the Bates Bamboo are becoming harder to find locally.
  14. Even with the doll blankets I use a larger hook. I is what I've used with the baby yarn.
  15. When I grew up we used to take a bus to Concord to Walden Pond made famous by Thoreau for swim lessons as there was no local pool/public pond for Red Cross swim lessons. It would have been so awesome to walk just two streets up to a pool year round. I think it's great to see the local kids getting swim lessons, swim team, dive teams, etc. It is just a shame it took so long to get built.
  16. Ironically, they built the pool that DH and I use now just after I moved out of my parent's house. It is housed in a now closed elementary school that I walked to when I attended school there. The school was only 2 streets from my house. I was so frustrated when I found out they waited until I moved to install the pool. All those years!!! They've installed a pool and a Senior Center but the place still looks remarkably like the elementary school I attended let's not talk about how many years ago. The gym/cafeteria room still looks much like it did back then. It is almost scary. The Senior Center was an addition so that area is new but they still use the small elementary school space for various purposes. Last night we realized the benefit of school vacation. The dive team came early and they added warm water after they left right before we arrived to the dive well. After coming in out of very cold air it was such a treat to climb into warm water. Of course getting out not so much.
  17. It would help if you posted a picture of the problem. I've used Bernat's Baby yarn on doll projects which generally are crocheted tighter than baby blankets and while its acrylic yarn so it has an acrylic feel to it but I've never found it to feel hard. So, I'm trying to imagine what the project looks like that you say it feels hard. I've always thought it felt pretty soft. I tried making doll blankets with left over bulky yarn a few years back and while not "hard" they were way too heavy for the project and I frogged them. That is why I questioned using bulky for the baby blankets. If it is too heavy for a doll, I can't imagine it would be great for a baby. However, if you are using traditional baby yarn and still having this problem, I'm thinking it has to be something to do with how tight the stitches are, thus your tension. Without a picture it is hard to know. We are just guessing.

  21. Is there a reason you are using bulky yarn for a baby blanket?
