  1. I know this is not exactly a crochet question, but related. Many amigurumi patterns call for embroidering details, especially faces. Though I understand how to do this, I don't know how to anchor the stitch so it can't be pulled easily. Sometimes it can be hidden if a part of the piece has a similar color, I just tie it there and then take the needle in the toy until it comes out in the right place and then take it back to secure it. But most of the times, I can't do this without leaving a very obvious knot of a contrasting color. How do I do this? Diana
  2. This project began it's life as my 2015 North Carolina State Fair project. Without going into all the sad details, I did not finish it in 2015. I cried for about 15 minutes when I realized it wasn't going to happen, and then I dried my tears and went out to dinner with my husband and son and rechristened the project my 2016 North Carolina State Fair project. Now I am 26 days out from the deadline with more work than I would like to have left to do, but it is looking -- as long as I don't get sick or break anything and as long as every one in my family doesn't get sick or break anything -- like I will probably finish in time for the high noon deadline of October 10. But I don't like the whole probably aspect of it. Here is where I am with the project as of September 13, and here is one of the motifs:
  3. Good morning to everyone, here you are some pics of another tapestry crochet rug that I made together with the other one, the Granata. But for this one, I could not find a good name! Just like the first, it has been made with t-shirts rags and a mm.8 plastic crochet hook. Enjoy!
  4. Good morning to everyone, here you some pics of a tapestry crochet rug that I made more than a year ago, if I am not wrong. I called this one 'Granata'. It has been crocheted with a mm.10 plastic crochet hook and some big skeins of t-shirts rags. Enjoy!
  5. Hi, my name is Mary and I live in Rome Ny…was originally thinking about starting just a crochet group but then got to thinking that maybe it could be a craft group where we would have combined talents in one group…I know that there is an established knitting group and I don’t want to interfere with that group but I would like to at least get some crocheters together…I can host right at my home…I do have a finished basement and we wouldn’t have to find somewhere public…and I am willing to let other crafters use my supplies that I do have and you would be willing to pitch in also….I do have a lot of beading/jewelry materials and 2 sewing machines and I also have some cricut materials…I am thinking that it might be fun to mix it up a little and give each other ideas….what do you think about hosting this type of group…any ideas
  6. I have fibromyalgia (which causes muscular pain). I find it odd that I can crochet for 3 hours a day without any pain, but if I embroider for more than 20 minutes or so, my wrist hurts the next day! Have any of you "hookers" had a similar experience? Where you can crochet a lot, but only do embroidery (or needlepoint, cross stitch, etc) a little bit?
