  1. Thanks for your comment. I like to crochet novelties so it's fun to make but it takes a lot of work and time. I crochet loosely, so after making the giraffe & tree, I went down a hook size. My friend is crocheting one too and her's is a lot smaller. I didn't like the color of the giraffe so I made mine yellow with brown spots. I also can't make loops so my grass with be latch hooked. I had issues with the leaves too but I worked it out........not complaining, just venting.
  2. It's been awhile since I've been here so perhaps I missed a post about this pattern. Is anyone working on the "Into the Jungle" pattern from Crochet World? It's a pattern published in three sections. I've started it, made a few changes and this is a photo of it so far. I'm just finishing the grass underneath the giraffe. A tiger and a monkey will be the last two animals on top .
  3. When I retired (2 1/2 years ago) I thought I'd be crocheting all the time but that didn't happen. The first year I got involved in our local senior center, then my husband's health got worse, requiring me to become his care giver. The best time for me to crochet is late at night and sometimes into the wee morning hours, if I'm really enjoying it.
  4. This great-grandma is 65 and crochets. I'd be interested in finding out the oldest and youngest in our group.
  5. It Quacked me up! It looks soooooo real ....... love it.
  6. This is another Pringles Holiday Candle in red with fluffier ruffles.
  7. :2snowman:2snowman:wreath I crocheted this holiday candle to fit over a Pringles can. I used parts/ideas from several patterns and RHSS yarn. See post #13 for a red candle with a white/green ruffle.
