    Since I was a young teenager. My mother taught me.
  1. What a cute sweater! You did an awesome job, particularly since you didn't have a written pattern!
  2. Got it, looking forward to being part of the traveling hook.
  3. Is it still possible to join in? I'd love to make some squares for such a worthy project.
  4. Debbi, this is gorgeous. Very nice job! Vicki
  5. Hi Terri and welcome from South Central PA! Vicki
  6. Thank you, ladies, for your suggestions. I'll give both a whirl and let you know how they turn out. Vicki
  7. Ladies and gents, I need some help so I thought I would come to those who know best! A good friend of mine lost her husband last week and I don't live close enough to her to be of any help to her. I want to make a shawl for her and send her a "hug" and here's where I need your help. My crochet skills are decent. I would say I can do anything up to and including an intermediate pattern. I've never made a shawl before so I think this is why I'm having so much trouble picking out a pattern from the dozens and dozens that are out there. I was wondering what pattern (or patterns) you might suggest that would make up fairly quickly. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks. Vicki
  8. What a great job! I'm really nervous about thread crochet because the few times I've tried I had a terrible problem with my tension. But you did such a marvelous job you're inspiring me to try it again. Well done!
  9. Khourtniey, I'd like to send you some blankets and hats too. My son was born almost 12 years ago when I was only 26 weeks pregnant. He weighed 2 pounds 5 ounces. Now he's doing very well in school and he's just a normal kid, but those first few years were very difficult with worry and appointments and a lot of physical and developmental therapies. I'll PM you to get an address to send the blankets and hats to. Vicki
  10. It's just so frustrating when life's little responsibilities get in the way of a good stretch of crochet time, isn't it? I feel your pain. LOL Hi and welcome from Pennsylvania. Vicki
  11. Hi and welcome from Pennsylvania! I'm a lefty too and tend to be a perfectionist myself. But it's nice when something comes out exactly the way we want it to, isn't it. Vicki
  12. Hi and welcome from Pennsylvania, USA! You'll discover just how much crochet can add to your life, it's a great stress reducer and you'll get oodles of pleasure out of giving gifts you've made yourself. I love to crochet. Vicki
  13. Thanks for sharing this, Drew! Your patterns are fantastic and I greatly appreciate your generosity. Vicki
