  1. Here's the pattern: http://priscillascrochet.net/free%20patterns/Needleworkers/Aluminum%20Crochet%20Hook%20Case.pdf
  2. I just finished this case to hold my crochet hooks, scissors, needles and stitch markers. It was a great project for learning new stitches and techniques, and I'm so excited to have something so useful out of it!
  3. Thanks for the suggestion. I was unable to access the site all day today, so by the time I got back in, I was 3/4ths of the way through the cross-stitch section. 5 more rows and I'm done! I'll keep that in mind for the next time though.
  4. I'm working a pattern that calls for a cross stitch or criss-cross stitch -- not sure which is the correct name. The row starts with a DC, skip stitch, DC in next stitch, then DC in skipped stitch, so the two DC's form an 'X'. I REALLY don't like this stitch. I'd like to substitute a different stitch in it's place. It would need to be the same height for it to work with the pattern, but I'd like to use something that would also create an interesting texture instead of resorting to a plain DC stitch. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help.
  5. Hi everybody! I'm Carol, and I'm seriously hooked on crocheting. I've been crocheting about 4 years now and finally feel like maybe I can stop calling myself a beginner, but heaven knows, I still have so much to learn! I like to make hats (especially chemo caps as I'm a breast cancer survivor), scarves, shawls, baby blankets, cat toys, you name it! Sometimes I crochet just to crochet, with no real destination in mind. It's what relaxes me. It's almost like meditation. Mostly I do "regular" crochet, but I also like Tunisian crochet for a change of pace. I'm looking forward to getting to know you.
