  1. Well, I just broke down and ordered them. When they arrive I'll try to remember to post the length for anybody else who wants to know.
  2. I'm looking to buy an afghan hook, but I'm wondering how long the cord is on Crochet Dude's afghan hook...JoAnn's doesn't say. It just says it has a long flexible cord.

  9. Welcome from SE TX! Our climates are very similar - are you looking forward to cooler weather as much as I am?
  10. Very nice! It really looks nice on your little stool!
  11. Beautiful! Isn't it nice when things turn out better than you expect? And you were able to use stash yarn, too!
  12. Thank you! I may have to make that one! I like to use a book for fringe, too - but I use a hard-cover, so that I can slip the scissors in the gap that is provided by the cover extending over the pages. (The opposite end from the spine.)
  13. That's great! I bet I could make one with my scrap yarn! Thanks!
