    Learned from my grandmother many years ago, but only started doing it seriously in 2000
  1. I just posted this on the charity thread of this, but I figured I might should put it here, too! "Hey guys... so here's the thing: After 3 different medical procedures this week, I'm way tired and way behind on EVERYTHING around here... including my crochet! So, I have an offer for anyone working on this charity. I pulled out all of my Caron Simply Soft yarn a couple weeks ago, and while I'm going to keep all the Brites to try and get some more squares finished myself, (I've only managed to do 4 or 5) I have 15 skeins... 6oz. each of regular Caron Simply Soft yarns. I have them in 3 different colors, sage, country blue, and dark country blue. Now... without you being picky what colors ya get, and as long as you PROMISE the yarn will be used to make squares for this charity, I'm willing to send out this yarn to anyone working on this that might be out of or running low on your own simply soft stash. 15 skeins, and I'll send one or two or however many you promise to use... just let me know. And let me know soon so that I know what sort of shipping material (sizes, etc.) to buy. I'm considering it destashing for a great cause, and I KNOW there's no way I'm getting to it all by the deadline. So... any takers? Let me know! "

  3. The tables are great no matter how they were made, but that bedspread.. that HUGE thing with thread?! And it's soooo beautiful! I can tell you're really proud of her, and that's awesome. I would be, too!
  4. I love the way merging those colors like that turned out. It's really pretty!
  5. It's really pretty. I hate fringing... lol. I feel like it takes forever. You did a great job.
  6. That did turn out great! He's so cute, and he looks really pleased with it!
  7. Hey, Chessie! Welcome to Crochetville! I'm in Corbin, Ky.
  8. ooh you said this year's is better? yay! I have mine as well as the knitting one, but I haven't even opened them yet. I was disappointed with last year's too. Lots of doll patterns, etc. And some of them taking up days and days for patterns that could have easily been on one or two days.
  9. Heck... I think my needles train for marathons. They start out downstairs... end up on the second floor, outside... gremlins... I agree.
  10. Well I have a really big stash just for this reason! We're always catching something around here. And I'm lucky enough to not have to work right now, and even though the school complains when my kids miss without doctor's excuses, I still keep them home when they're sick... even if they aren't sick enough to go sit in a contagious medical center lobby all day. Why do we get sick so often around here? Because my husband works at the one place most of you have agreed you have to go when you're sick... he's a PHARMACIST. Funny thing, he NEVER catches it. He has built up an immunity to it. But he brings it home to us no matter how often he santizes his hands. But another thing, I have allergies and so does my 5 year old. We would both appear contagious at times even when we aren't. While I rarely take her into small shops like an LYS, (I'd rather wait until I'm alone) I agree it was the owner's right to post a sign, but I think it should have included everyone. Losing my business might not would have hurt her (although my husband and my bank account would surely disagree)... I would have felt very uncomfortable going in there when suffering from an allergy so I would have stopped going at all. I'd just find another shop or order online. I don't begrudge her the right to choose who shops in her store. And I would certainly take advantage of my right to shop somewhere else.
  11. Those are so adorable, and what a nice idea to donate them.
  12. Very pretty. I would have loved it, too!
  13. Melanie, I have a copy of that issue I'd be more than happy to send you if someone hasn't volunteered already. PMing you now.
  14. oh my gosh, if I wasn't so happy for you, I'd be jealous! Yay for you!
