  1. Oh YarnCat!! My daughter's name is Cheyenne .. and she's been looking thru your hat patterns trying to decide which she wants me to make for her .. you just cemented the deal for me .. this one it is!! Thank you for such a great pattern!!
  2. Starr, I, too, have been attempting to teach my 9 year old daughter to crochet. She is also having trouble with holding the yarn and the tension. But she is learning and is determined to do what mommy does. We, too have the Kniffty Knitters both round and long sets. She makes all kinds of hats and scarves, and has such a yarn addiction that Santa brought her 12 skeins of her own to pet and play with! Enjoy passing on the yarn addiction tradition, I know I am:hook

  4. Spices are always great ... if they drink coffee ... a bag of coffee beans, two mugs and crocheted mug warmers would be nice. Candles and candle holders for a romantic dinner. When I married the first time(don't ask lol), at my shower I was "pounded" The group that did my shower got together and filled a laundry basket with things that new brides don't think of, Flour, Sugar, Spices, Salt, Pepper, Laundry Soap, Dish Detergent, Fabric Softener, Corn Meal, Vinegar, Honey, Powdered Sugar, Brown Sugar, all the baking and cooking foods they could think of, measuring spoons and cups, plastic utensils, a dish drainer, veggie peeler, cook books, etc. That gift and the afghan my grandmother crocheted for me were my very favorite gifts!
