  1. Not really sure why the link didn't work for you. It worked for me. Anyway you could probably just go to Facebook and type in Winter Hats In Memory of Peyton James / Bullying Awareness and it should take you to the page. Sorry the link didn't work.
  2. Great idea. I've seen patterns where to connect the squares as you go, but I never tried it. I probably should. It would save tons of time. I also saw a comment the other day about 'carrying over the loose thread from the previous row so you don't have to tuck in later'. Not sure how this works but I'd love to try it. Also would save tons of time.
  3. There are so many different color combos that would look great with this. I thought of using different shades of blue or pink. Or for a more grown up look maybe red, black and gray. Although I can only do granny square blankets every so often. I hate all the loose ends and the stitching together.
  4. We are collecting winter hats in memory of Peyton James. He was a 13 yr old from Texas and the target of bullies much of his life. This is his story as told by his father: https://www.facebook.com/events/714205532021344/ Hats should be for adults and either red, blue or orange or a combination of those colors. ***Please send them with a note attached to EACH hat that says "In Memory of Peyton for Bullying Awareness." *** All donations should be sent to us at Emily's Hats For Hope Initiative ATTN: Hats For Peyton PO Box 2374 Morristown, NJ 07962-2374 Hats are due by June 16th, 2015. Peyton would have turned 14 on that day. Hats can be store bought if you don't know how to knit or crochet.
  5. So many great causes, so little time. I have already posted this on my page, but will continue to get the word out.
  6. Such an inspiring story. I will definitely send something and mention this great event of my Facebook page.
  7. Thanks. I really like the look of this one.
  8. Hello I've been crocheting for nearly 20 years but have only really gotten into it in the past few years. Recently I've been paying a lot of attention to various organizations that accept crochet items for people in need. I started an online group for people who like to donate. I choose a charity, set a deadline and then ask participants to donate to that charity by a certain date. It's just for fun and support. I can post a link to the group if that's allowed. Also I posted an original pattern in the free pattern section if anyone is interested. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone
