    off and on since 1988
  1. Once again I see I am not alone. So glad to be in such good company, lol:devil
  2. There was a time when I would just work on one at a time, the multiple habit started innocently enough...I was working on an afghan and ran out of a color that I couldn't find for about a month, so I put the afghan aside until I could get more. Now I find that I have multiple going for a variety of reasons, committing myself to to many things, getting bored with one project, or sometime it is as simple as getting new yarn and just can't wait to see it worked up.
  3. I have been looking at double wedding rings as a wim for a few years now. Just haven't started one as I very strongly dislike sewing pieces together, but your photo makes me want to give it a try. Very tempting, and very beautiful. Great job on this one:clap:clap Thanks for sharing!!
  4. This is an excellent reason to stitch a few cloths..,,not that I need a reason, just saying, lol. I have a few patterns that I have been meaning to work up........may have to squeeze a few of these in between afghans.
  5. main hobbies are crochet and knitting, but I have also worked with plastic canvas (haven't done that since I started crocheting again about 6 years ago. I don't sew unless absolutely necessary and even then it is very MINIMAL. lol
  6. WOW! that is one huge round ripple. I bet those last few rounds took forever to complete! :cheer Great job on sticking with it. I haven't made any quite that large, but I know from the one I have made that getting around it towards the end takes a bit of perseverance. Thanks for sharing that one, I believe I am motivated to add a few rows to my current project (only on the first skein of yarn so not too big yet).
  7. I believe this is an ongoing cal... an if you scroll through the pages you will see there are some rr's that are single strand as well as some that are double. I didn't start the cal, so I could be wrong, but I think it is ongoing.
  8. I am currently working on a granny square in homespun, and although I love the way it is turning out, it is not the best yarn to work with. I think practice is the best advice because I also bought some of this yarn quite some time ago, tried to work with it and put it away. But I found A LOT more of it on sale and loved the colors so decided to give it another try. It's working much better now. It also knits beautifully without all the headache.
  9. can't wait to see the pics, never get tired of round ripples....
  10. I wanted to post my latest rr, here is a link to the thread. Thanks to CrochetDad and AggieMay for the 9 point pattern. I love the way it turned out, but it looks much better in person. Working on another blended in simply soft autumn red/black that I will be posting as soon as I get more Autumn red....Thanks for lookinghttp://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=110122
  11. Oops!:blush:blush I didn't even realize I forgot that part. Let me try that again. http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=105931
  12. Here is a link to my latest rr, Thanks to CrochetDad and AggieMay for the original 9 point rr (I made this one 8). And also thanks to JuneMarie for the ch 3 rope border, love it and will use it again. Right now I am thiniking I would like to see it on a granny... Thanks for looking.
  13. More than one answer applies to me,lol. I got my first lesson when I was going to the doctor when expecting my first child (she is 21 now). A lady I didn't know was working on a baby blanket in the waiting room. She showed me the basic stitch she was doing gave me a hook and a small ball of yarn. I practiced that day while waiting, and went to kmart afterwards and bought some pink and blue yarn and then proceeded to make my first blanket. I made one for my second child and several nieces and nephews in the next couple of years. Got burn out, found plastic canvas and then stopped crochet
