  1. Hello. I have a granny square inquiry. I'm making a valance for my kitchen window. I've made several sunflower granny squares, and was thinking to put one at the bottom, next row would be 2, next 3, and so forth, with a square in the middle of the top to attach the two sides. I have no problem connecting squares together, my question is this: Is there any way to attach granny squares to a single/double/triple ect. stitch? Say you're making a row by row throw blanket and want to add squares to the design, is this possible? I can figure out how to attach the top and bottom of the square, it's th
  2. Hey guys, So my cousins girlfriend is pregnant and I want to make a blanket for their baby. It will say "Noah" which will be his name when he is born. I have drafted out the name for how I want it to look and I've come up with 2 designs I like. One will have to be 17 squares long to fit the name and the other will have to be 21 but I don't know how many squares I will need to have a decent amount of squares surrounding the name and what size I should do each square. After all it's a blanket for a baby that I hope he can keep for a few years. What size for the blanket would you recom
  3. Finished this yesterday... All the info is on my blog HERE.
  4. Hi all, just thought I would preview with you some of what I have done in the past week or so, trying to use up all my bits and piecies of yarnnie goodness, they have waited so long, as I promised the whole basket full of baby balls, and medium balls, I would use them all up on something wonderful... So, true to my word, I have this to show you, the rubber bands in the pics are what I keep my balls in line and together with, ( i think they ruff hosue, when not supervised!) and that is how many balls i have used thus far, only a few more to go! Enjoy!!

  6. Are you the type of crocheter who can “wing it” when you want to make something? Do you just “make it up as you go along” but you really don't care about writing patterns down? Then perhaps you’d like to participate in a new project I’m developing. I would like to put together a pattern book for “state squares” – each square will be designed to pay tribute to or make you think of a specific state. (Think along the lines of the state quarters.) Maybe the square would have a simple rendition of the state flower or bird? Or something that makes you think of that state – gold rush for Cal
  7. Hello all! Would you like to participate in a Christmas Charity Blanket Project? It is very easy, just crochet a square or 2 and send them to me in an envelope, I will take care of the rest!

  8. After making just about every scrap afghan there is I am, once again, overun with scraps! I decided to try my hand at making 6 and 12 inch squares per how much of each color I have. I want to make the squares and crochet a main color around each before assembly. I first went online and made two folders on my desktop for storing 6" and 12" patterns. This part went very well and then I began........... I know sometimes you have to add or subtract rows to make things work out but I never thought all of my patterns would seem like a "non fit" My 12 looks good for adding a row but the firs
  9. In an effort to help those less fortunate than us, I am looking for people to dig into your hearts and even deeper into your yarn stash. I am looking for volunteers to make granny squares, to be pieced together, to make afghans for charity. Also anyone how would like to donate hats, booties burp clothes and any other baby items for hospitals would be very much appreciated. I have a few charities... in mind, but would love any ideas for more. The thought of one person making a whole blanket can be daunting, but if each of us made one or two squares, the task would take minimal effort. Of cours
  10. Molly's Babies takes gently used dolls & teddy bears, cleans them up, fixes their hair, and then crochets outfits for them. Some dolls & teddy bears will also go with their own blankets, when available. Molly's Babies is a non-profit organization that needs help with doll blankets, hats, outfits, booties, bibs etc. and 4 inch squares (knit or crochet). Square colors are greens, blues, pinks, purples, reds, yellows, or a combination. pretty much any square will work...for boy's and girls. Doll blankets--large enough to cover a normal size doll Doll size bibs, hats, booties, outf
  11. I was referred to this site from another, with a link that was titled "Sunflower and Daisy Afghan Squares." I followed this link http://crochet.about.com/gi/o.htm?zi=1/XJ&zTi=1&sdn=crochet&cdn=hobbies&tm=17&f=20&su=p284.13.342.ip_&tt=3&bt=5&bts=9&zu=http%3A//www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php%3Ft%3D120708 only to come up empty. I can't find anything resembling sunflowers or daisies on a search of the site. I do have a picture of an afghan I would love to reproduce, which is why I'm searching...the photo is below... Any help would be a
  12. HI All, We are looking to create immediate comfort care packages to give to kids who are in the process of being removed from their homes due to neglect, abuse or domestic violence. This project was started by a good friend of mine, Amy A. We will be donating these items to The Department of Human Serives in Cedar Rapids, IA. We have a facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ProjectWarmFuzzy?ref=ts&fref=ts Myself, I am a crocheter and looking for help with blankets. I will be collecting 8x8 and 12x12 squares to make into blankets. You can also donate 36x36 and 36x40 size blankets.
  13. Posting this is probably overkill, because I just posted it on the 'ville's FB page, before I knew the site was back up and running. But I want to try it out. This is a sampler made from stash yarn and patterns from all over the place over the past month or so. The border is No. 40 from the gifted Edie Eckman's book, "Around the Corner." Additional photo and details on ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Afghaniac/neutral-flowers-afghan Yea for the Crochetville ladies-in-charge! It all works, and it's easy to use and to read. Thank you!
  14. I started making this as a surprise for my youngest son when he was in middle school. Well, surprise! He's now a sophomore in high school. Here is my blog post about finally getting this project done (and setting my intentions for the new year) and a photo of the complete afghan and some of the pieces to be used in solve them.
  15. I own what have to be some of the ugliest potholders ever, and this week, I set out to replace them. You can read about this crochet adventure in three installments (first, second, third). Here is the finished product:
  16. This is from Jean Leinhauser's 101 Crochet Squares. A super interesting technique for decorating the surface. I'll be able to use what I learned here on lots of things. Here is the blog post, and here is a photo:

  18. Great pattern for beginners and those who want to create something beautiful! http://idesignadventures.blogspot.com/2011/10/easy-ruffled-squares.html
  19. For a charity raffle, it had to be something eye catching. It is on the cover of "50 Sensational Crochet Afghans & Throws." I changed the color scheme just a little, and the outline stitch, and added a border from Jean Leinhauser.
  20. I am trying not get get further behind in this crochet-a-long, so here is my effort for this week. I really like it turned this way as it highlights a design element that is not as apparent when it is turned 45º.
  21. Hello all, This is the first time I have posted for a comfortghan. My best friend just found out she has Cancer. Now she has to uproot her family and move across the country from WI to TX to be near the treatment center. There are only 2 places in the whole country that treat her kind of cancer. I want to give her something made with love that she can take with her but because of my Carpol tunnel and Tendonitis I know there is no way I will be able to finish one before she has to leave. She thinks she will be leaving in about 2 months. So I thought I would ask you all for some help.
