    My yard sale

    $.50-$1.00 is more than fair price. I'm sure your yarn is in much better shape than the crappy/dusty/pilly yarn in my local Walmart which they sell for full-price! charkitty

    Looking for "Stiff" Thread

    What's the best "stiff" thread that requires little or no starching? I'm looking for a thread (to make earrings/necklaces) that's stiff and will not curl. Also what's the best thread for "drape"? Thanks! charkitty
  14. "3 hdc decrease into 1" means you are to decrease 3 hdc stitches into 1. Basically, you are turning 3 stitches into 1 stitch. EXAMPLE: insert hook into next stitch; yarn over and pull up loop; insert hook into next stitch; yarn over and pull up loop; insert hook into next stitch; yarn over and pull up loop; now pull hook through all loops on hoop; You have now decreased three hdc into one! Hope this helps! charkitty

    Crochet vs. Knit Rant

    Recently while flipping through an Avon catalog, I noticed some cute little Christmas sweater ornaments that were obviously crocheted. However, they were listed as 'knitted' sweaters. I often see crochet items in catalogs/magazines referred to as 'knitted'. Since there are so few crocheted items, would it be asking too much to get it right? Just irritates me. Anyone else notice this? charkitty

    I recently purchased Annie's Attic "Mobius for Beginners" pattern. However, I'm stuck on round 1 which reads.... Rnd 1: Ch 163, twist beginning of rnd 1 360 degrees, join..... What does 'twist beginning of rnd 1 360 degrees' mean? How do you do that? Help! I'm stuck! Thanks! charkitty

    Mobius Pattern Help

    Thanks for your help. Unfortunately I could not open/view the sites you suggested. However, I did contact Annie's Attic and they referred me to a help site which e-mailed me the following instructions for 'Mobius Twist' which I'm sharing with anyone interested: MOBIUS TWIST: Lay your chain out flat making sure that it is straight and that it isn't twisted. Bring the 2 ends together, side by side. Take the end that you are going to join in and turn it over completely so that the top of the chain is once again at the top. Now join in the first chain. It should now be twisted 360 degrees. charkitty
