  1. I just received my Talking Crochet! Newsletter and it had this as a FREE pattern now. I'm so glad. It was so expensive if I wanted to buy it, as it is very popular. I loved the hats in the scquares. I thought that was so cute. Several people here have made it and it always looks great. Chapeaus

    Single crochet afghan pattern w/fringe

    Is it this Navajo Afghan ? There was also one that I did (many years ago), were every 5th sc I did a LSC a row below. The next row it was on the 6th, next row 7th. I believe the original pattern was similar to the Navajo afghan (if not that one) but I didn't want to count back, so each row I just went up one more stitch, then when I had 5 sc I started over again. I just used scrap yarns on each row. Gave it to my aunt to use for her grand kids. Was warm and colorful. I believe it was called a Zig Zag pattern. But not sure. Maybe Lightening or something like that. Or maybe a ripple afghan? Could be soft ripples or a wavey afghan? With any ripple pattern you can create something like that.

    55¢ Boye Hook

    I have a lot of these. There was a thrift store by me that use to get them in all the time! I ended up with a bunch and love it. They were only $1 there and micheals had them for $2, so I got them from the thrift store. Unforunately that thrift store closed. I rarely find them at any other thrift store. But I love them. I thought they were older then the 60s or 70s, but if not, that's fine. I enjoy using them!

    2011 Pattern a Day Calendar question

    I really want to get this calendar. I was looking through my 2007 and 2008 ones and just love looking at all of them. Here's a Table of Contents so you can see what's in there.

    Ideas for twins

    Or a multi color/verigated baby color yarn. I've done tons of those for baby showers because they work for everyone. Just make sure that they have all the colors, one didn't have blue or something so I passed that verigated yarn up. Verigated works with any pattern really, although you don't want something that would look better if it showed up stitches. A basic double crochet blanket would be easy and look nice. Then if you wanted add some booties or hats.

    Dishcloth-inspired poncho

    Very nice. Very innovative. I love the colors. Not sure on the math thing... I took a dishcloth pattern, made 2 and turned it into a purse.

    Beautiful! I love your afghan! I bet it did take a long time to make. I saw a pattern like that in a recent magazine and at only 50 inches it used about 70oz of yarn and I decided against doing that (it would have been expensive to enlarge it).

    Crochet Today

    I love Crochet Today. In the latest issue I took the beginner afghan and the square pattern and made a purse out of it (I made up a side gusset so it would be wider). I love just looking through the magazines. I've started trying to do that with patterns, seeing what else I could do with them so I feel like I've got my money's worth. I decided to make it worth the money I had to make something from every issue, or just about every issue. Even some thing small. Like the 2 squares for the purse (and gusset and strap). I haven't considered digital yet, but it is intriguing. Maybe with a larger portable screen like a tablet (iPad type thing but leses expensive) would get me to do that.
  14. Boye size I. I like the end better then Susan Bates. I found that with my guage the I hook works great for worsted weight (my main yarn choice). I actually bought an extra to keep in my purse make up bag so I'd at least have that in there to use... since I try to make all my items with an I hook....
