  1. I have the swing arm table top model next to the couch. I got it at Joanne's when they were on sale. I love the swing one since I can swing it out of the way if I don't need it. I use it for reading, crocheting, sewing... It is a great eyesight saver!
  2. Thanks for the information. I'll be sure to check into that.
  3. I look at it this way, I also quilt and yarn is so much cheaper than quilt fabric... it's also a lot cheaper then therapy!
  4. I know I've been away for awhile but I haven't given up on my crocheting. I've have been lurking regularly. I've had some life experiences get in the way, but through everything I've had my crocheting, knitting, and quilting, until now. I had a benign soft tissue tumor on my right thumb that started to interfere with my knuckle so my only option was to have surgery to have it removed. I will probably have some residual nerve damage to that thumb so I'm not sure I will be able to use it again for crocheting. Funny, I didn't seem to be too concerned about anything else except for being able to
  5. I haven't been on in a while, but I'm glad to see that someone is still enjoying my Chiffon Doll! Great job!
  6. I am looking for pattern for Marvin the Martian helmet. Even one close that I could alter would also be great! Thanks for the help.
  7. I wanted to make that one! I couldn't find the yarn I wanted locally, so I'll have to order it. It is really on my list of things to do now. What yarn did you use?
  8. There is a book that has the patterns for the Mickey and Minnie dolls. I've made them both and they are great fun. I don't know if they are still in print, but I'll try to find out who published it.
  9. I have the Denise Crochet hook set. Just got them last month because I have the Denise Knitting set and LOVE them! Anyway, unless you are going to do tunisian crochet, I don't really recommend them. I don't know why I bought them in the first place, but I did. Maybe one day I'll want to do tunisian, but now right now. Just my opinion.
  10. Thanks all, it's good to be back. Now to update my photos with my new creations!
  11. Hey all, I've been a member for a long time, but recently life has been taking control of my spare time. I went from a part-time job to a full-time job, then I started working on my Masters degree, we bought our first home, and I'm now a grandmother (four times) all in the last 3 1/2 years! I'm still working on my Masters degree, but I hope to be able to start spending more time online with my crochet buddies. I've missed sharing with everyone, so I'm going to try to set aside more time for myself in the new year. Beth
  12. Sorry about that. You could always make the last couple of rounds in a different colors, like a border. I hope everything works out for you. I too buy extra.
  13. Our Michaels just started carrying that yarn too. I got a bunch at the 30% off at the beginning of the year. I've just about finished an afghan with it and I love it. It was very easy to work with, soft, but seems like it will hold up well. I also bought some Vanna's at the same time, I must say I prefer the Bernat.
