    ISO of some yarn

    Good Morning, I'm currently working on an a 63 square afghan & I'm afraid that I'm going to be running out of some of the colors that I'm going to need. Would someone be willing to help me out? I'm currently using the following Redheart Supersaver in the following colors: 1. Lt. Blue (Need 2 more skiens) 2. Lt. Periwinkle (need 2 more skeins) 3. Varigated Monet (Need at least 2 more). If you could help me that would be awesome!

    I do believe that I'm working w/ REDHEART supersaver yarn that has acrylic in because it is what the patterns calls for.

    Several shawls all finished in the span of a few weeks!

    Those are some BEAUTIFUL shawls there. How long did it take you to make one?

    Believe it or not, I have been listening to Audio books & as of 2 nights ago, I like to read a book that I checked out at the Public Library in bed every night so far!

    Hi! I'm working on an afghan that states that each of the squares needs to be 10x10. They also stated that some BLOCKING maybe needed. I have never blocked anything dealing w/ crochet before. How would I go about doing this? Also, should I measure each square & the ones that aren't the needed measurements just block those or how am I suppose to know which one are the right size & which ones aren't?

    The other 3 numbers represent the other sizes associated to the project/garment that you are crocheting.

    For me, setting a deadline to finish something puts pressure on me & I feel that it takes the enjoyment out of making the item. But IDK, it just might be me! I have to also keep reminding myself that it is not a race & that it's a hobby.

    What is Your Crochet Perspective?

    I really enjoy crocheting afghans mostly! I would rather not crochet a project that has anything smaller "I" hook because I have RA in my hands. Don't get me wrong, I will crochet w/ smaller hooks but just be prepared that I will need more frequent breaks so that I can get the item done. Also, I have been known to make some shawls, Amigurumi (can't do this very much because of how small of a hook I need) etc.

    Are you working from a pattern? Or are you free-handing the project? I.e. making a scraph afghan of sorts for example!

    Just how old are you?

    I'm actually 33 & I enjoy crocheting for the most part. But there are times that I can't get into so I just take a break! I'm hoping to be able to push through this boredom & keep on crocheting.

    Don't worry about those weird looks at your school. Think of it as if they are admiring & thinking how nice it would be to learn what you are working on!
