  1. Thank you!! It means a lot to hear that from a fellow crocheter. I don't actually know anyone else who does this and it was getting a bit lonely. I'm glad I found Crochetville!
  2. I'm fairly new to crochet and it was suggested that I share some of my work. So I decided to show the last thing I actually finished. It's a mini me version of my niece. I sent it to her for her birthday. I'm not sure if she would be comfortable with me posting a picture of her but I promise it looks just like her. I'm also working on one for my little sister but it isn't finished yet. I'm actually really proud of the progress I've made since December. The pink and green one is my niece, and the one in the dress is my sister.
  3. Thank you so much, I will do that.
  4. These tips just saved my life! To think all of this stress and aggravation over something as simple as how I yarn over or whether I crochet in the front loops... I started over and you can definitely see the difference between the two. I also noticed the new one came out a bit smaller but I think that's because of my tension while trying so hard not to yarn over the way I'm used to. You can see how the original was twisted so the bottom was turned away from the top. The invisible decrease mentioned in one of the links also helped a lot. I was ready to give up on this altogether but this was a real confidence booster. Thanks again!
  5. That looks like it might be the solution I've been looking for. Thanks so much for the link! Now to try and train my hands to do this new type of yarn over...
  6. Thanks for that link, I didn't even know about yarning under! Also yes I'm talking about thr entire section of color in the front is twisting to the side. I managed to include some pictures this time. I made a Stitch from Lilo and Stitch and you can tell in the pictures his body and legs are facing one way while his head is facing the other way. That was unintentional. Now it is happening again with my current project. The black part is twisting so the bottom of hte head does not line up with the top.
  7. I have only been crocheting for a few months now. Recently I decided to get into making amigurumis and it is definitely a learning process. My biggest issue seems to be that when I am doing a pattern that requires a lot of color changes my work starts to twist.. For example if I am making a frog with a dark green body and light green stomach I would have to keep switching between dark and light green every row. After a while I notice the light green in the front starts to look like it’s twisting off to the side. If I finish all the way up to the head then it will look like the frog is looking off to the side because of the twisting. I cannot figure out how to stop this from happening and trying to research the problem I have not found anyone else asking this particular question. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
