  1. Rachel: Actually there is a website site that sales Nylon Thread for Jewelry making, etc., etc. According to the owner the Nylon Thread she sales is much thicker and more appropriate for Jewelry. Do a search for Marion Jewelry on google and it should come up. Or you can do a search for Nylon Thread. Joyce
  2. I used this thread all the time, I love it. Usually I make doll dresses and dollies out of it. Such around for a good price though because the price varies for site to site. I found that it is running anywhere from $2.60 to $4.00 each. Joyce
  3. Kathy: Thank you so very kindly for your assistance. I am alone crocheter (have no crochet friends). I have been crocheting for many many years, to be exact 41 years I have taught myself everthing I know. I am so please to learn about the crochet forums and extremely happy to finally have someone to interface with a issues/problems I am having. Thanks again for helping me, I appreciate you. Joyce
  4. Hello All: I am in the process of making a beautiful Annie's Attic Flower Garden doll dress by the name or Rose and I am having difficulties understanding rnds 8-27. I worked rows 1-7 with no problem. However, when I got to row 8 I started working in rnds. My understanding is that when you start working in rnds rather you work in one continious rnd or you work the complete rnd and join with a sl st and turn you are usually always told to join. I understand well how to join a rnd. The problem is that once I get to the end of rnd 8 the pattern says: Ch 7, sc picot in last ch sp, ch 4, tr at base of first ch 7 of rnd (ch 4 and tr count as a ch 7), turn The problem is this pattern never says join and I think this is what is confusing me. The norm is when you crochet in rnds you join with a sl st. The word I am stressing over is join. Furthermore, it is hard for me to tell if the dress is joned in the front or not. Has anyone every encountered anything like this before. Last night I actually followed the pattern thru rnds 10 using regular yarn instead of thread and it appears that the rnds are being joined by the ch 7 and the tr. Can anyone shade a little light on this? Please help. Joyce

  6. LittleLionFlower: According to Colleen it is one row of sc and one row of working around the sc. If that is the case then it sounds like a fp sc (front post single crochet). If you have access to the website go to http://www.youtube.com and search for fp sc and often times there are videos to show you how to make certain stiches. Good luck. Joyce
  7. The difference in a ch (chain) and a st (stitch) is a ch is a small loop. It is either the chain you created when starting your project or a chain you made doing the project. However, a stitch is either a sl st (slip stitch), a sc (single crochet), a hdc (half double crochet), a dc (double crochet), or a tr st (treble crochet), etc., etc. Hope this helps.
  8. Amanda: Hello, how are you? I am not really sure just what you are trying to say. Please elaborate. Thanks Joyce
  9. MaryJo: Hello, how are you? Good I hope. I need some help, maybe you can help me out. I am in the process of crocheting a beautiful doll dress and I am stuck. I have been crocheting for quite some time and therefore, know how to join a rnd. However, the pattern I am working on says the following: Ch 7, sc picot in last ch sp, ch 4, tr at base of first ch-7 of rnd (ch 4 and tr count as a ch 7), turn. I have never joined a round like this, I am assuming that the rnd is being joined. Notice that the insturctions never says join. I am to do rnds 8-27 this way, but from the looks of the dress the Overskirt is not joined in the front. Have you ever worked with a pattern like this? Thanks for any help you can give. Joyce
  10. Hello Yes, it is cold and rainy. I alos should be washing or cleaning house. But I rather crochet. Right now I am having a problem understanding some instructions. I joined Crochetville hoping I could get some help. About a 1-1/2 ago I signed up and didn't get much help at all. If it happens again I will join another forum. Joyce
