  4. This is more of a yarn-related question. I like to write and do reviews for books and movies, but recently, I thought I would review some yarn, but I really wasn't sure what I should talk about besides color and texture. So, my question is, what aspects of the yarn should be talked about in a yarn review? Here's a link to my review (as you can see, it's not very detailed). Any help and feedback would be appreciated! http://www.sleepyhollowstreet.com/2015/06/camelot-dyeworks-review.html
  5. Hi! I'm new here and would like to ask for your help. I ordered "tshirt yarn" from an online seller since zpagetti is too expensive for me and I am just starting with crocheting. I figured I didn't want to spend too much on a beginner project so I decided to buy a cheaper version online. When I got the package, this is what I got (see photo). I am not sure if this will work with the "pouf" project that I wanted to do and if it doesn't, what I am I going to do with 1.5kgs worth of this material. I cannot return it anymore. Any suggestions? Has anyone worked with this type of material before? TIA!

  7. My name is Marie. I live in New York State not too far from Niagara Falls. Here is a bit about me: In January 2013 I decided to look at New Year's as a way to discover myself. I decided that I really wanted to find out what interested me and what I was good at. I always considered myself not creative. So my discover began So the first thing I did was I signed up for a Wilton Method Course 1: Decorating Basics. It was held in February 2013. I LOVED it! I looked as forward to the last class as I did the first. It was so much fun baking and decorating. The next thing I did was sign up for a basic sewing class this took place in March 2013. See in 2012 My Love bought me a sewing machine and I was feeling guilt from not using it. I took the course and have been sewing ever since. Since then I have made stethoscope covers, pillow cases, curtains, chair covering and Toddler Pillows. In June 2013 My Love bought me a digital camera. I LOVE it! My favorite pictures are of nature. I am obsessed with clouds and textures. July 2013 In July I woke up one day and decided I need to start a blog. Why? Something new I guess. Actually when I was younger I wrote poetry and wanted to be a reporter. I also considered writing a book when I was a teenager but there ere was no one to support me in this endeavor so I did as I was told and went into other things. I still want to write in some way. So a Blog seemed like a good idea. continued to discover myself through the next 9 months. Still searching for something. In April 2014 I discovered crocheting. I purchased a book, explored you tube and joined a local knitting and crocheting group. Within a short period of time I fell in love It is now my passion. I am completely and totally obsessed!!! I am always up for challenging myself and there is always room for more friends in my life. I came upon this site by chance as I was searching for somewhere other than Facebook and Ravelry to connect with other crocheters

  13. Hi. I am in search of Yarn Bee Debut yarn, Blush color. I started a project and REALLY want to finish it with this yarn. I bought it at Hobby Lobby but it being discontinued. If you have any and would like to sell or trade it, please let me know. Blessings.
  14. Forgot to post this work in progress (Groot from "Guardians of the Galaxy"). He's probably one of the most difficult figures I've ever tried to re-create, and I find myself putting way more detail than I probably should for an amigurumi
  15. Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum, and to crocheting in general (I'm self-taught through the magic of YouTube videos) and have been crocheting for about 2 or 3 years now; I have a background in sculpture so that's kind of helped I just wanted to share a few of my latest and favorite creations (Slimer from Ghostbusters, a bonsai tree, an iris, and the Jersey Devil {based off of the famous 1909 sketch}): None of these are pattern-based (I free-hand everything, and base my work off of photographs of the objects I'm creating), but if there's enough interest in anything I do, I would consider taking the time to work out the patterns. Hope you all like them

    Sparkly-type yarn?

    Hi Everyone, I'm hoping you can help me. I've started making what i call repunzel hats for a group of sick girls at my church that don't have much hair or have lost their hair due to chemo for the winter. The hats have long blonde braids on each said as well as a crown and i'm letting each girl choose her crown color. Now here's my problem. I have checked my Local Joanns and Walmart for some sparkly yarn for the crown they have purple and silver and blue and pink but no gold. and of course one of the girls wants a gold crown. I'm scared to order any online because i don't know if it's for sure what i want. Can you recomend any certain yarns for me or colors. I do not and will not go to hobby lobby it is not an option Thank you in advance!!

  18. Starts June 21st, 2014 and if you can come by the shop, we will start at1 pm. Spring & summer is here and a nice crocheted shawl for those cool evenings or air condition spaces would be great to have, especially because you made it yourself! You can choose from two patterns: V-Stitch & Scallop Shawl: http://www.redheart.com/files/patterns/pdf/LC4100.pdf Lion Brand free pattern library: http://www.lionbrand.com/printablePatterns/WildFlowerShawl.pdf Both patterns are intermediate that with help most can do either of these patterns. I made a few changes (of course) when I made my V-stitch & scallop shawl. I used Bamtastic yarn from Plymouth (a nice bamboo & nylon mix which adds bounce to my shawl) and a "F" hook. It took three balls. This allowed me to shorten the number of rows needed for the body to 54 rows before adding my scallop trim. For the Wild Flower Shawl I used Saucon Sock from Kraemer Yarns. It's a cotton, acrylic & nylon sock yarn with about 231 yds per skein. The yarns are available at most local yarn shops. If needed they are available from my shop @ 856.669.1131. Because there is 430 yds per skein of Saucon Sock yarn I will half the skein for all colors (except black), and half the cost as well.
  19. I made a shawl to send to someone and washed in on the delicate cycle - made a mistake by drying it along with a previous load of washed items. The underwire worked its way out of a bra and got caught in the back of the dryer, twisting the other end into the shawl. Now I have this huge hump in the shawl that I can't flatten out. Is there any way to fix it? If not, I guess I'll keep this one for myself and make another to give away.
  20. I purchased some Red Heart Super Saver (which is my go-to yarn for charity afghans) in order to make a colorful rainbow afghan. The pattern calls for working in the back loop only throughout. I started with purple and before I had three rows completed, I frogged it. The yarn separates and splits so much that I'm going to use it for a pattern requiring inserting the hook through both loops. The remaining loop when working in the back loop shows the loose separated strands too much and makes the afghan look damaged. I'm really disappointed. I have been working with Caron One Pound skeins for most of my charity 'ghans lately and haven't bought Red Heart in a while. Did I get a bad skein or has something happened to Red Heart's quality?

Please also thank your partner personally with a private email, as well as a post to the swap thread.

Both public and private thank-you’s are required. 7. Make sure your postage and receiver's address are correct before mailing. Mark your package with "Crochetville Favorite Color Swap". Do not forget delivery confirmation is required whenever it is available, and the delivery confirmation must be emailed to the swap coordinator.

If your package is not postmarked by the POSTMARK BY date of April 9, 2014, you will be subject to the consequences listed in the Swap Guidelines. Please contact the swap coordinator BEFORE the mailing deadline passes if there is a problem. 10. Since we are an international group, everyone is more than welcome to participate.

  23. Howdy, im george im about 3-4 months into crocheting and love everything about it.

Of skeins for a king size blanket I just wanna get some cool yarn since its gonna be mine.
  24. How do you mark your balls to remember which manufacturer and specific color and weight? I have been winding the beginning yarn end around the info, but I have to wait until the whole ball is done in order to find out what to buy to match it (or unwind the ball). For instance, I have 3 different 'whites' ...
  25. I have been a fan and follower of this site on my mobile for the last year and enjoy the photographs of every one's work. I read a "how to crochet" book as a young teen and have been hooked ever since. My only crochet friend recently passed and I am anxious to connect to other people interested in crochet. I hope to learn and find answers to broaden my knowledge. I am the grandmother of 5 so have lately been working on items for them. I began crocheting exclusively with thread but have recently began creating more items in yarn. I have crocheted several blankets and wraps or shawls and now would like to learn to crochet sweaters, jackets, and other clothing items. So happy to be part of the forum.
