  1. My first thought was that it would take forever to dry after even one use. You'd have to toss it in the dryer every time. Not very practical and certainly an energy hog.
  2. Welcome from Colorado! Crocheting can be as expensive or as INexpensive as you want. Unfortunately most of us tend to go overboard and buy pattern after pattern after pattern and enough yarn to last a lifetime! If you buy just what you need for a particular pattern, your expenses should be: crochet hook(s) pattern(s) yarn The yarn is what gets expensive of course. You can buy Red Heart acrylic for $3 a skein, which is at the low end or you can spend $30 or more for the same amount of yarn but is top quality. Always look for coupons for Hobby Lobby, Michaels or Joann's. Th
  3. This is one of the cutest amigurumi purse patterns I've ever seen. Thank you so much for sharing!
  4. Here's a website that has Dallas Cowboy logo: http://www.sportslogos.net/team.php?t=165. From there, just graph it: http://www.microrevolt.org/knitPro/
  5. Thanks for letting us know and for sharing the note.
  6. I would like to have the administrators of Crochetville consider adding special titles to the messages of people who have gone above and beyond. (That's in addition to the crown and sceptor, Krystal!) My nomination for the charter member of this elite group would be Krystal for completing this very successful project. :queen (I just love all these smilies!) If you read this and feel likewise, please contact the administrators or add your "vote" here for them to read.
  7. I'm extremely impressed! First, by you, Krystal, for taking on this incredible project. You have your work cut out for you! Second, by all the women (and men?) who have contributed to these masterpieces. I'm not sure I've EVER seen such a huge coming-together for a relative stranger and her family! Krystal, I assume from your email that Jess' afghan will be put together essentially as you have pictured it here. Other squares will be used for the girls and Jeff's mom and pop. So tell me again and again and again how huge Jess' afghan will be????!!!!!
  8. This is the most exciting project I've ever participated in! I just wish it were under happier circumstances.
  9. Thank you. It's a fabulous pattern. I wish it were mine to share.
  10. My squares went out this afternoon (March 12) with a few dollars via priority mail since they have to cross most of the country to reach you. Better warn your postal carrier to take some aspirin starting on Wednesday! Wanda Kay, I LOVE your friendship square!
  11. I just love this pattern but would have never thought to use DC instead of bullion! Thanks for the inspiration.
  12. Thank you. :hugI take pride in my pattern collection and this is one of my favorites. It can be adapted for just about any occasion. I thought about adding wings and a halo but I'm not experienced enough with the art of crochet to make it work.
  13. Here's the paperdoll square just washed and starting the blocking process. The original pattern is a rectangle so I had to add some rows on two sides to square it off. I found some pink fun fur (one of the Hobby Lobby brands) that also has a gold thread running through it. I combined it with the cranberry WW yarn for the outside border. The pattern calls for three strands of pink yarn, braided, with a ribbon affixed at the end of the "hair" but I didn't like that so I used some yellow Lion Brand Homespun and opened it up so it looked frizzy. From what I researched, Jess' daughter is blonde so
