  1. Hi there! Just a quick question Has anyone here gotten paid to test a pattern? If so, what were the terms? If not, why not? Thanks!
  2. Hello all! I'm Sedie and I have a blog called Yarn Obsession which focuses on the business of crochet. The idea is that as we start our crochet businesses we tend to have a lot of questions that we either scramble to find the answers to or we just jump in and look later. At Yarn Obsession there's a free ebook on 5 Steps to Successfully Start a Crochet Business as well as tutorial videos, and information for the fledgling crochet business owner. I hope you come say hi when you get the chance. oh, I'm also working on a book to be release in about a week and a half on how to price your crochet. See you soon!
  3. YAY Rose!!! I'm so happy I could inspire you to this project! Have fun with it, cause it's a great cause. Just keep that smiling face in your mind and go for it!!
  4. Hi Oliveoil, That's exactly what I was thinking when I decided to design this one. I didn't want to get bored and I wanted the recipients to have variety! It was such fun creating the pattern and working it up!
  5. The 2012 Special Olympics Scarf Project, sponsored by Red Heart yarn co., is underway and I designed this scarf specifically for this project. Go to the Special Olympics Scarf Project website to find out more, and to see where in your state you can send a completed scarf or two or twenty!

  8. Hello all, I'm going to begin a blanket that needs to be three times as big as the chart I have to work with. Can anyone give me a link or an easy explaination as to how I can increase the size of my chart? My image is already graphed, but I'd like to know if I should count each square as two stitches or how I can make it larger. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks, Sedie
  9. Hi I'm running a contest on my blog http://yarnobsession.blogspot.com and the grand prize is a $60 gift certificate to a store of your choice. This may be a good opportunity for those of you who are coming off of your yarn diets to get a goodly amount of yarn. I'm hoping to change and enhance the look of my blog, so I'm offering this prize to the person who can design a banner and buttons for my new look. When you get to the blog, look in the right hand sidebar for the little link that says "button contest". Thanks and good luck. P.S. I wasn't sure if I could post this here, so if not, please let me know where would be a more appropriate place. Thanks. Sedie
