    How to add a link?

    Thanks for trying to help! I figured out my problem.... I was using Internet Explorer. When I switched to Google Chrome it worked easily (On internet explorer, the pop up box had the following lines: link type protocol/url by anchor name by element id email address message subject message body Plus, on internet explorer the pop up box wouldn't cancel or accept ok for a link.) With Google Chrome, the link icon pop up box has only: link type protocol url Chrome allowed me to post a link. Practice link to the history of crochet: http://www.crochet.org/?page=CrochetHistory

    Yikes, I don't see eyes with a globe- where is it? I know how to copy and past a link to put in the url box but the element id and protocol is

    How to add a link?

    I know where the link symbol is, but when I click it, the pop-up box that says "protocol, anchor name, element id" has me confused I've tried various things and the box always freezes up and won't let me select "cancel" to get rid of it. Can someone please help? Even my son, who is home from college, couldn't figure it out.
  6. Wow, that Highlander club is expensive! I noticed lots of knit and crochet Outlander-type patterns have been popping up on Pinterest. I was reading an article that said the knitware is the real star of the show. I learned the costume designer for the show, Terry Desbach, has her own blog (link is her full name dot com). It's really interesting to read and it has forums for discussion. The show currently takes place in the mid 1700's and the 1940's. I don't think crochet was done in mid-1700's Scotland? (on crochet.org there's a good article titled "History of Crochet by Ruthie Marks"). It would be lovely to see some crochet pop up in the show in the 1940's scenes
  7. Thank you! I couldn't figure out how to post a link, but if you do a Google search for "Outlander Claire images" you can see actual examples from the show.
  8. Would love to find some free pattern links to crocheted versions of the knitted capelets/ cowls the character Claire wears in the show Outlander.
  9. The costume designer, Terry Dresbach, has her own blog with forums for discussion. It would be wonderful to see some crochet in the next 8 episodes.
  10. I love that show! I saw an interview where the actress who plays Claire said they employ knitters in Scotland where they film the show.
  11. Here's a baby jacket I saw on a random blog that's done in modern bright colors. http://pinterest.com/pin/11694908/ Link to the original pattern, pdf form: http://poppalina.typepad.com/Myms_Wedding_Jacket_Pattern.pdf

    Glass Jackets

    I saw these on a blog I like to read and thought they were so pretty. Has anyone seen a link to the vintage pattern for this set? Thank you. Here's a direct link to a photo click "open" to see it http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_x908CSKJhI4/SxxAddUJpsI/AAAAAAAAMGY/NXorOuslZco/s800/Crocheted+luncheon+set+074.JPG or, if that picture won't work for you, here's a link to the blog. The glass jackets can be seen in the second row of pictures at the very beginning of the blog.(2nd row, 3rd from the left). OR, Here's a direct link to the blog. If you currently scroll about 3/4ths of the way down on the blog's 1st page, the pink and white table setting has the glass jackets and matching placemats pictured two times in bigger pictures. http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ (These two pictures may be on the second ot later pages of the blog, depending on when you read my question).
