  1. Thanks again, that link was very helpful. How did you know I might need help with that!! lol
  2. Thank you so much, what you described makes sense to me....just one more stupid question, when I sew the sleeves do I do that with thread or yarn?
  3. I'm still new and looking for easy patterns, I found this pattern for a shrug that I would really like to make but I'm afraid to start it because I'm not sure what they mean by the "finishing" and "edging" instructions. The link to the pattern is http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=2584 If anyone can describe to me in plain English exactly what they mean I would appreciate it. Thanks for your help. Rita
  4. I want to thank all of you for your imput, I guess I'm not the only one who has had this problem!
  5. Hello Fellow Chrocheters, I am sitting here ready to pull my hair out.....surely that will be easier than trying to pull the yarn out of this skein of yarn. I am still new to crochet and have only started a few skeins of yarn, but I've started them differently. Some seem to unwind naturally from the outside while others seem to start from the inside. This particular skein I started with seemed to start from the inside so that is what I started pulling from. It was working fine for a while then all of a sudden a big clump of tangled knot came out. It took me some time but I was able to untangle that mess and things started flowing again only to jam up again and again and again. I'm fed up and need to know what is the right way to start pulling the yarn out from so this doesn't happen again. Thank you for your advise. rita821
  6. Thank you for the great advice, I've heard of the foundation stitch but never tried it. I will look it up and try it next time I start something new. This site is wonderful for quick replies to questions, Thanks again!
  7. Hi Everyone, I'm new to crocheting, mainly teaching myself with the help of videos. I've only completed a baby blanket, bag and couple of scarfs. The problem I have is starting a new project. The first row or two are just so tight, I don't know what I'm doing wrong, once I get to the 3rd row my tension is much better, but those first couple of rows are very difficult to get my hook into. I've even tried starting off with a larger hook size and then switch over to the right size but my work in the beginning is still so tight and so tedious just to get through. I'm getting discouraged and thought maybe others have had this problem and can give me some hints on what to do. Thanks for reading. rita821
