  1. I am getting ready to start another graphghan. Everytime I am so thankful you taught me the correct way to change colors, I was changing color and finishing stitch as always suggested and hated it. I was ready to toss my 1st 1because to me it looked so awful and jagged. I wanted nice color changing and neat edging, and your way saved the day it is amazing, easy and looks great ! I have made so many, and can't thank you enough. Nancy....you are my crochet hero !!

    I thank you, my kids and grandkids thank you...many graphghans later.

  2. I was trying to describe to a fellow crocheter what this yarn is leaving when I try to ty it off, weave it in etc., and realized the 1st letter of each = hubby, LOL!! By the way I was speaking of Bernat bAby blanket yarn, love the polyester but I can in no way figure out what to do with color changes, it is soooo bulky.

    Grandson loves them!!! I did not stuff the arms or legs.
  10. Finally, ready to block, tie off on back, and do edging. can't decide whether to do charcoal grey or pick a color from it. He is so excited to get it and I am very pleased with how it has turned out. It has been very difficult. At times I had as many as 26 bobbins in a row I was working with.

    Where is the Gallery?

    I can'y find iphoto gallery, it says at the top of the page but I have searched and searchred. When I look at my content and hit gallery on it, it shows nothing, only place old pics are is attachments, and I can't actually access them. I am obviously missing something simple? ty ty
