  1. another way for a more 'gradual' line... increase: chain 3, double crochet in same stitch (base of chain three), continue in established V-stitch pattern, at end of row place 2dc in top of turning chain. turn chain 3, 2dc in next dc, continue in established pattern until 2 stitches left, 2dc in next stitch, dc in top of turning chain. turn chain 3, V stitch in next dc, continue in established pattern until 3 stitches left, skip 1 dc, V stitch in next to last dc, dc in top of turning chain. you have now increased two V stitches per row, one on each end, over three rows
  2. Okay. I'm crying. Jess, you are a remarkable and insightful woman whom I am honored to know - even through an internet message board - and as well I am proud to be associated with the wonderful people here.
  3. Krystal, you definitely are the Queen of Afghans! I've heard the expression "If you want something done, ask a busy person" and I see that is true... husband, kids, domestic goddess, charity afghans - yeah, that's the person to put together FOUR afghans in under two weeks + organizing all the names + getting it shipped out! So whenever any of us see Krystal's avitar it will have an extra special meaning, knowing the 'story behind it'
  4. Krystal, you are amazing! I can't believe how quickly you've pulled all this together - remarkable! And the layouts are gorgeous!
  5. Wow! I can't believe it... there was just under two hours between when you posted the rows in one direction were done and when you said you were almost done with the other direction! Amazing!
  6. Just finishing my third square and really pouring love into all of them for Jess and the girls. I just love looking at everyone's beautiful work! So much talent and creativity! So I've got to ask where the patterns can be found for the gorgeous daisy first seen in post #94 and that adorable little girl block shown in post #100. Krystal - I'll be mailing these out tomorrow!
  7. Thank you, Krystal, for organizing the comfortghans. Of course I will make some squares today for Jess and the girls. I've been getting to know Jess through the self-improvement thread that I started and my heart has really gone out to her in her efforts with the girls... how this could happen just defies logic.
  8. Now THAT'S funny! Son Todd was doing a school project and needed info about some invention from the 1800's so he IM's his sister in college and she IM's back' "Just a minute. Let me send you a link to my Fun Facts from the 1800's.":faint
  9. I LOVE that you started this thread and I will be checking out the various links that have been posted so far. As soon as I saw the title I went to my craft book library in the den because I have a book that some might be interested in. It is called "Magical Needlework - 35 original projects and patterns" by Dorothy Morrison. It is NOT a dedicated crochet book - it has chapters with projects for sewing, quilting, embroidery, crochet and knit. The crochet section includes a pattern for a crocheted necklace pouch, a stone/crystal cup, a filet pentagram wall hanging, a Goddes bag, a Th
