  1. I really love this. Thanks so much for the patterns.
  2. I really like this. Think I'll experiment and use the basic pattern to do cover for my new cell phone.
  3. I love the texture of this. Thanks so much!
  4. Thanks so much for the pattern. Ever use that stitch in a scarf?
  5. I really like this. Thanks so much for the pattern! Kathy
  6. Very nice pattern. It's hard to find a ski mask that looks good, but this is it. Definitely on my list to do. Kathy
  7. That is so nice. Thanks for sharing the pattern. I think these are going to be made up and go in many stockings this year.
  8. Very nice slipper pattern. I like ones like this that will stretch to fit a variety of sizes. Thanks for posting it.
  9. Very pretty. Love the yarn and how it works with this pattern!
  10. Hi and thank you! I must say this is one of the easiest and pretties shawls I've ever done. I've finished one, and have a second one in the works. These make wonderful prayer shawls, and they work great with any weight yarn.
  11. I just love these! I can imagine both younger kids and teenagers would really like these. Thanks so much for the pattern.
  12. That's really beautiful. There are so much stunning sock yarns out there, and it's nice to see them being used in crochet, not just for socks, but other items. Kathy
  13. Wow! This is definitely the most unique and beautiful pattern I've seen in a while. Thank you so much for sharing it! I'm already plotting what yarn to use to make this. I love some lovely self striping wool in my stash but I'm thinking it may be too heavy done in that yarn. Will have to try it and see. Also - I already printed out the pattern it read it over - your instructions are very clear and well written - once again some of the best I've seen. Kathy
  14. Thanks for the info on self designing. I would not have thought of the sewing pattern idea, and http://www.smart-knit-crocheting.com/ is just a fantastic site with lots of great info. Kathy
  15. Those are really pretty! Thanks so much for posting the pattern. While I was there I checked out your other patterns and I think your acorn pattern is so cute. I think I'm going to make one for each of my co-workers adding a little typed note saying "This place is nuts". I think they'll really like them. Kathy
  16. Okay, I'm very frustrated, so this is probably sounding more like a ranting temper trantum, but the point is valid. I love to crochet (and knit) tops for myself and my family, and I'll pay good money for a nice pattern. However, if I'm going to spend $8 to $12 for a single pattern that is written in multiple sizes, I expect to actually have the size I make actually fit me. It seems like many designers write the pattern for the smallest size, then just add inches/stitches to the pattern to make the #'s work without considerations of what the end product will look and fit like. A very common problem is with armhole depth. Example: Sweater with average ease: Size 34 - Armhole depth 8" Size 42 - (My size) Armhole depth 11" Now folks - 11" makes the bottom of the armhole almost at my waist which is not the way this is designed to fit. And yes - that's actually the way the schematic shows on this pattern! Please folks - I'm a bit busty - not Godzilla! This is also common with raglan shaping where designers just continue the raglan increases until they get enough stitches to meet the body width intended without consideration that the armhole depth is way too deep for the larger sizes. Please, Please! If you're going to write clothing patterns in multiple sizes, make sure that the pattern will fit and look as intended for all the sizes. Otherwise, don't do it. I've now reached the point where I won't buy a pattern any longer unless I can see the schematic of it before hand. I've invested in a few books focusing on design, and I'll now invest the time to develop my own patterns. Kathy
  17. I'm so sad, I just wish I had the figure these days to wear it. Anyway, this is the nicest skirt pattern I've seen in quite a while. Now, when can someone make a skirt for us women who unfortunately have very little difference between our bust and waist size?. Kathy S
  18. These look great. Thanks for sharing the pattern! Kathy S
  19. Thanks Darski - I hadn't seen this pattern before. Interesting way of doing the thumb - must try it. Kathy
  20. I really like these patterns. I definitely am going to make some of the scrubbies. Kathy
  21. I've been busy making items for my church bazaar and charity and I finally realized that my 8 year old daughter does not have wool mittens for this winter. I found a pattern and made these http://tinyurl.com/47635 I used the pattern found here: Scoll down a bit: http://spinayarn.com/free_crochet_patterns.htm It's easy and I love doing the wrist as part of the mitten instead of separate. These fit my 8 year old snugly. The only modification I made was to only use 9 stitches for the ribbing instead of 12. I definitely will make more of these. Only takes about an hour to do one - no sewing and only 4 ends to weave in. Kathy

  23. I agree with the frustration. When I end up at that site after doing a search, I usually exit out of it without going further. By time I page through all the ads and find what I was looking for to begin with, it's not worth it. Kathy
  24. I got my invite a few days ago. Went over there and am extremely disappointed. For a both knit and crochet forum - the crocheters are either very quiet or too ashamed to actually post. Don't get me wrong - I both knit and crochet - I just thought there would be interesting crochet talk - I was wrong. It's far more interesting here.
  25. That is really cute! Thanks so much for sharing. Kathy S
