    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!
  2. I am wondering does anyone own this book? I was given the pattern from a good friend but then I also found the book on Amazon so I purchased it. I have already done the 1st square but I have (I'm sorry to say) have used the colors that I had planned to use to make my 1st one. But none the less if I find out that anyone else has this book, would you be interested in doing a CAL w/ me?

    2016 Any Afghan CAL

    Hello fellow members, I have done some research & I have not found one for this year. I know that I'm late getting it started but I figure we all should have some time to crank out some afghans! Anyways here we go: I am continuing this yearly CAL for all who want to join. This is a CAL for those that wish to share the afghans they make throughout the year. There are no real rules or anything. Feel free to ask questions about patterns/problems...never know who might have made that one already! I have added a line in my signature like this: "Any Afghan CAL +0". As I make afghans I adjust the number at the end. You don't have to put it in yours, but can if you want to!

    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?

    Good Morning, How does everyone fight against getting bored when they are working on their crochet? I am trying to work on a sampler afghan & just can't get into it to save my life. Please help me!

    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!

    Shawl We Crochet? - CAL

    Is this CAL still going?
  14. Melissa Kroll


    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.

    Just how old are you?

    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!

    Needing yarn to finish Jacket

    I would need the super saver type ones. It's a solid light tan the color is called BUFF! I would think maybe 2 more skeins to finish this Cardigan off! I hope that this information helps!

    Needing yarn to finish Jacket

    Good afternoon fellow crafters! I'm currently working on a project & I know for a fact that I am going to not be able to finish the project w/ what I have. Long story short, I'm going to need/to ask to see if anyone may have some worsted weight yarn from Redheart the color or Buff please? If you do please let me know via a PM & I will gladly send you my addy so that you can send to me! God Bless you, Meli
