  1. Thank you so so much for your help! I'm not too picky on making it EXACTLY that size, as close as possible though, but if it's off by a bit that's fine. Time to just give it a go and hope for the best!
  2. I would like to make the blanket the same size as the pattern. Unfortunately there is no gauge. I understand the part where I make however many stitches necessary to match the width of the blanket in the pattern, but I'm a little confused as to what the point is of the unused chains. Actually, if I just did the amount of stitches needed for width and then just do a bunch of rows, measure and multiply that by 5 (the number of colour blocks I plan to do) and once I get to a certain amount of rows that will end up close to the length of what I want it to be, I guess I could just copy that for a
  3. Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful morning/day/night where ever you may be. I'm wanting to make this blanket: http://www.thesweetersideofmommyhood.com/blog/art/2012/12/hot-applejuice/#more-4140 The person states they used Lion Brand Vanna's Choice yarn which is a 4 medium weight yarn. Unfortunately, where I live I just have a Michael's for yarn selection and they didn't have anything I was looking for colour wise in a 4 medium, I ended up getting baby yarn which is a 3 light yarn. My question is, will I be okay to substitute? I still consider myself in the beginner stage o
  4. Hm. Maybe I'll hold off on the hats then. My stash consists of acrylic yarn. I'm hoping to branch out but any patterns I've made so far have called for acrylic.
  5. Good evening/morning/afternoon/whatever time it may be for you I've found myself in kind of a rut. I would like to use up some yarn that I already have but find that nothing really has stuck out that I want to make. So until something strikes my fancy I'm thinking of maybe doing smaller projects that won't take much effort/thought and will work up quickly. I was thinking of maybe doing up some baby hats to either donate or gift and it got me wondering - do you happen to crochet a bulk stock (did I word that correctly?) of items? Things that if you happen to need to gift somebody something
  6. Hello! Currently I only crochet, but am also very curious about knitting. I would much rather buy a set of needles instead of one at a time. I have my eye on these gorgeous interchangeable circular needles (http://www.knitpicks.com/needles/Options_Interchangeable_Caspian_Circular_Knitting_Needle_Set__D91078.html) and was wondering if these were possible to use to learn how to knit. I do realize it would be best to probably buy one set of needles to learn and once successful THEN buy a set of different needles, but I just love these circular ones. Thanks in advance!!!!!!
  7. I started teaching myself about 6 months ago at 22. Since getting into this hobby I've learned that my late Grandmother not only knit (and many other crafty things!) but she also crocheted! It really makes me wish I would have heard about crochet when I was little. I would have loved to have shared that hobby with her. However, because I'm left handed I remember she wouldn't teach me how to knit, so maybe she would have also refused to teach me crochet. But I ended up teaching myself right handed. I figured it would be awkward to begin with so why not learn it so I don't have to read things ba
