  1. Hello from Central New York State where is snows EVERY DAY....rural and beautiful But ok...enough snow already. Nice to meet you Summerwine. I like to knit also but am not very good at it. I find that crochet moves quicker. I guess that is just me.... Talk soon. TeriAnne

  3. Thank you Greyhound Grandma, Pineknott, and Tampa Doll....It is nice to return. Now I just have to find time to actually pick up a hook! LOL Please tell me ...what is a Baglady? I remember seeing Bagladies on the streets of Manhattan, when I was a young dancer in the 1970s going to my dance classes. So what does that term mean here? Can I be one too? LOL
  4. Good Morning Everyone I am not a new member, but a member who has been MIA for a while. Since my join in 2015 (I checked my original introduction) I have gained 2 grandchildren! Now that is a way to tell time, isn't it? Back in 2015 I opened another dance school, which would be my 4th! (I sold 2 and closed one due to moving out of the area) The dance school took a big hit during this year due to COVID but we are surviving, and working on our recital! I have been crocheting since I was 8. (I was born in 1955, the same year Marty Mc Fly went back to) I was taught by my father's madrina

  6. 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

  10. 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....
  11. 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/

  14. 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.

    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!
  17. 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

    What does DK mean? and would that be the same in cotton as well as acrylic? I am trying to substitute Drops Muskat yarn for something I can buy local. Would Peaches and Cream 100% cotton do the trick? I want to make the following pattern http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/us/pattern.php?id=123〈=us I located the pattern from this website http://primitivespirit.wordpress.com/2012/05/12/a-crochet-memory-gave-me-an-inspiration/#more-1805 In the primitivespirit blog she looks as though she used the 100%cotton your thoughts?

  20. Hi Everyone I am new to Crochetville. I am a wife, mom, grandma, dance teacher, vegan and I love animals...but through all of that I love to crochet. It is my sanity. I like to make all types of things. Afghans, clothes, slippers amigurumi...I am ready to try it all. My mom taught me when I was about 8 or so. Through all the years I have picked it up and dropped it from time to time. I am a Jersey Shore transplant who now lives in rural Central NY along with dairy farmers, horse breeders and Amish. It is a place of rolling hills that are beautiful in summer but dangerous in winter since
