  1. In my humble opinion, I would stitch those 18 squares together and make a small throw afghan to lay over the back of the couch or something.....just to keep it as a loving memento of grandmother, who so wanted to make something of these squares. I have my grandmother's old threads and those are well over 40-50 years old. I've been wanting to make some small doilies with it, just as keepsakes of my dear loving grandmother. I would just use a neutral color to stitch those squares together and put on a nice simple border.
  2. I usually get my yarn at the Big Box stores and online because we don't have a LYS nearby. In fact I don't know of any yarn stores around here. I guess I should investigate, just out of curiosity.
  3. Such an awesome, wonderful and thoughtful gift for your cousin. Hugs to you for your kindness and thoughtfulness.....and best of wishes and prayers for your cousin.
  4. Oh my goodness, this is the first time I saw this thread. I've only seen pictures of your tote, from those that others have made here and I am drooling over how lovely your pattern is . Please, pretty-pretty please, add me to the list of ladies who would like to have your pattern. I am dying to try it out. You are so wonderful and generous.
  5. Puff stitch or popcorn stitch hexagon
  6. Thank you for clarifying this for me . I was almost going to say the front post sc, but I knew that couldn't be it, because your sock is so smooth and sleek looking. I can't wait to try the pattern ...Thank you so much!
  7. Beautiful socks! Thank you for sharing the pattern . I hope to make a pair for my daughter. I think she would love them as much as I will....but one question about the pattern: Does fsc mean foundation single crochet? I just wanted to clarify so I can try your pattern out when I get a chance.
  8. Looks like sc to me too.
  9. My, oh my, that is a gorgeous doily. I just love doilies. If you don't mind me asking, what is the name of the book that the pattern is in. I might have to go and see if I can find one somewhere. These OOP books turn up in one place or another, and I certainly would love to try that pattern.
  10. I am seriously infected with the SABLE disease, but I am not looking for a cure, in fact, I'd be one of those who would refuse to be vaccinated. :lol:lol Thanks for the laughs, I needed a good one today. Now I am off to the craft store to get more yarn
  11. I saw darling little green hearts in the picture, before I even read your post about what you were asking
  12. I do both crochet and a little knitting, so I bought that "Knit 1 Purl 2" book two and after reading through it, I was totally lost. there weren't enough graphic pictures to figure out just what they were trying to demonstrate. Through YouTube, I found that the "Knooking" procedure was a lot easier to understand.
  13. Welcome to Crochetville and a big hello from Michigan
  14. Gorgeous! :cheer:cheer It is beautiful. That is something that I would love to make for myself too. I love your colors.
  15. Beautiful! Thank you for sharing the link to the pattern. I remember a while back, I made a shamrock pattern (very similar to this one) that was made with WWyarn, only I made it smaller with thread and made earrings out it for my daughter. She wears them every March for St. Patrick's Day.
