    started in 1992(i was 7) stopped and started again just recently (2006)
  1. i read symbols really well but the chart printed fuzzy and i still had issues with it! But I'm almost done now, thankfully in the last 10 rows or so yay yay yay
  2. well Its coming together but i no more and get a row or two set and good to go and i have to frog and go back and do it over because the pattern doesn't tell you where to put the stitches, you might be doing two different groups and skipping chain spaces and you would never know it because of the weird way the pattern is written. Thanks for the suggestion about word though, I will try it. And I'll keep posting progress so if you guys want to try it you'll be forewarned
  3. i think maybe i'm getting it finally!
  4. well i got row 4, now i'm having problems with row 5... oi! what am i doing with this pattern, if it has this much errata why am i trying to finish it?
  5. I'm a little lost. Has anyone made this pattern before? I know there are diagrams but my printer wont print it right and i really need some help. Row 4 is confusing: Row 4: ch 3, 1 dc in the next dc from the previous row, *ch 3, 1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc in the ch 3 ark from row 3, ch 3, 1 dc, 2 dc in the 2nd dc from the group of 3 from the row 3,* repeat 4 times, ch 3, 1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc in the ch 3 ark from row 3, ch 3, 2 dc at the end of the row. full pattern here: http://www.abc-knitting-patterns.com/1030.html
  6. Hi everyone I guess this will be the thread for our corner of the world! I know there are quite a few people from the area on here from what I've seen. And I may have actually met some of you as I work at the local Jo-Ann fabric store and have sent you to this site. Lots and lots of love and hope to hear from you all soon!
  7. HI Rose! My fiance's family is from Altoona! What part are you from? His family is mostly in the 9th ward section. I personally adore the Juniata and Lakemont area
  8. I love making things in the round I weave as I go I love cheap yarn I only use acrylics and sometimes cotton Knitting confuses me I wish more charts were available Thread is FUN and... Fun fur is not and I would like to burn it but can't see burning yarn(gasp a sin!) I don't buy magazines I don't buy books I hate susan bates hooks and only use boye Granny squares are fun to make but i hate joining I like motifs I spend more time online than crocheting Homespun is horrible
  9. Thank you very much for the package, it was a great surprise to come home to after a ten hour day working black Friday !I love the tarts they smell wonderful, I am looking forward to using them ...Seriously this couldn't have come at a better time:manyheart Again Thank you FGM
  10. i'm spereb89 over there! got my invite yesterday
  11. sorry i had some personal issues and wasn't able to work on the afghan but it should be done in a few days
  12. ooo diagrams! I'll definitely have to take a peek at this mag. I don't have any current crochet mags just because I simply like diagrams better. Why have words when just a picture will do, takes up so much less space too Quick question: do any of you know of actual books that have the diagrams in? I would like to purchase a Book of Diagrams just because it's less reading and you can just gaze at it to see if you are able to use the pattern (skill levels ans such)
  13. Maybe the article was aimed at expanding knitters horizons by introducing the hairpin lace technique. I know that I was uber confused by the concept of knitting and how the needles are to be held. Maybe knitters are utterly confused about crochet. Maybe they only see the uses of it in knitting and are rather closed minded. Maybe the article was to broaden that...I look forward to hearing what the reply to your email is
  14. Ok, well i've got all of the squares that I need. If there is any more that you wish to send I'll be assembling squares into comfort lapghans for a local nursing home. My grandmother used to send footies to them and I think it would be a good tribute to her to send small afghans. So if you would like to participate in this one just let me know
  15. no, i dont believe it is supposed to, but sometimes they get rumpled a wee bit, try smoothing it down and if it doesn't smooth flat then you may have done something wrong...
