  2. Hello Jennifer So nice to meet you. I am hearing but I love deaf culture!!! I homeschooled my 3 children and I taught them ASL all through their school years. I am self taught so I may not always be accurate with my signs and correct grammar but my youngest daughter is very fluent. She practiced the most. Since I am not a part of a deaf community and only get to sigh with my youngest daughter, I keep up with Dr Bill Vicars...he has a teaching site www.lifeprint.com I am happy to get to know you ....what project are you currently working on? Teri Anne
  3. Welcome Rebelle Nice to meet you ....looking forward to getting acquainted with you
  4. yes I remember how popular they were when I was a kid! My mom bought me one to wear to school and I still have it!
  5. I bought a pattern of a really cool one and ordered cotton to make it....what do you think? I saw this picture on FB and someone said the pattern was for sale on Raverly....found it ...bought it...
  6. I love the look...I am a definite child of the '70s and still sometimes into the Native American look. I have notices patterns coming up on line with that South West flare about them and popping up on several different crochet blogs....
  7. is it me or do I see on the internet an increase this year of crocheted ponchos? Are ponchos a trend this spring? The were once very popular when I was a kid in the 1970s but seem to be making a big come back this season. Your thoughts/
  8. Hi Megan ...I am in Pittsfield...it is in between, Norwich and Oneonta....Central NY area...although I am Jersey Shore native. I moved to Pittsfieled in 2006, I used to camp in Saugerties back in the 1970s, 80s and 90s....Loved going to Woodstock center shopping......I had shared a house in the 1970s for a summer with friends in East Jewett. nice to meet you
  9. Thank you all for the warm welcome~ .. there is a lot of navigating on Crochetville that I have to do yet...I think I am going to like it here
  10. I have been a member here and I never introduced myself to you all..... I am a wife, mother of 3, grandma of 3. I have been crocheting forever ...well since about 8 years old. Not continuously, since my friends in my teenage years thought it to be" not cool and old farty"...they were certainly wrong but you know what it is like as a teenager...well I picked up again when I got married in dribs and drabs but more so the past 10 years. I have taught my 3 children to crochet, one is a son and he has made 1 afghan when he was about 18 or so and that was it...my oldest a girl and now married with 3 small children, never caught on. But my youngest who is a college student (theater major/dance minor) loves crochet! She crochets to make extra cash...now that is the spirit! All college students are always looking for more cash LOL I teach dance....mostly classical ballet and tap...I also teach gymnastics. lyrical dance, jazz and musical theater. I am now employed at a local dance school but have owned my own studios (2) in NJ.... I love where I live now very rural Central NY...moved here is 2006...very different from where I am from ...the Jersey Shore.. I am hoping to make new friends here with like crocheting interests....I like to make amigurumi, hats, scarves, and now I am into making American Dolls clothes for my granddaughter....I also just began a Double Wedding Ring afghan for my daughter's friend who is getting married this spring...never made something like that before but it is a WIP....

    Flossie.... yes I believe that most hand crafted items of long ago were done with such precise care in the making. I love items that are fashioned after, as far back as Victorian times. I often see patterns of crocheted items even from the 1940's and '50's that are just made with more detail.and fiber that I don't believe you could buy today unless you spin.

    Thank you all for such detailed information...I think the yarn that the blogger used ...the Cotton Linen blend from Knitpics is perfect after looking at all your information....Thank you so much!
  13. Thank you all for such a warm welcome.... I am looking forward to spending some time here and asking questions ...

    Hmmmm...now I can't remember if I found DK in the pattern or the blogger. I don't see it in either now....I guess I was getting my pages confused. But anyway, I still don't understand what DK actually means. Does it have to do with the ply or the blend of fibers? Looks like I will order from Knitpics for the cotton linen blend that the blogger used. Thanks TeriAnne
