  1. I have been crocheting for over 60 years and now make baby clothes in my leisure time. Here is a recent set I made with size 10 thread to fit a newborn baby or reborn doll. I would love to see other clothing made with thread. It looks and feels different than clothing made with yarn.
  2. Wishing you all a Happy Easter! Enjoy your day with family & friends celebrating His resurrection. A couple of Easter Crosses I made for special friends.
  3. I accidentally didn't read the fine print when I bought some thread...it is labeled Perle Cotton Size 5 but I don't know what the equivalent is in crochet thread. Does anyone know what crochet thread this corresponds to? It looks close to size 20 to me. Thank you! (I saw someone mentioned size 8 perle thread here but not size 5...)
  4. This pattern link was in an email today. Cute thread snowflake: https://blueraindrops.com/crochet-pineapple-snowflake/
  5. This link was in today's CrochetKim email. It's pretty enough to make me tempted to try thread again. https://www.draiguna.com/2019/10/winter-realm-snowflake.html
  6. If this is in the wrong place, please let me know. Here's the story: I started this *pattern* over 40 years ago. I don't remember where I got it, but I do remember it was supposed to be a canopy for a tester bed. I wanted it to be a coverlet. I never finished the original start. Fast-forward to June 2017, and a friend started a group that meets at our library to knit and crochet. I brought an example of my 40-year-old work, and we figured out the pattern. 621 squares and lots of seaming later, I started trying to figure out what kind of border this thread crochet coverlet needed. It's very poufy, and it needs a strong border to make it feel more stable. After trying various things, I decided that a relatively plain border would look best. I took off in single crochet, doing blo every third row and doing 3sc in each corner. I'm on row 17, and figured I'd go to 20 or 21, with the last three all being blo. Now I've misplaced my 1.25mm crochet hook and can't continue until I find or replace it. I figured that was a sign that I should ask for some advice. I know the item will have to be blocked, but I'm not sure that blocking will even out the poufy squares and the border that's tight, making the sides uneven in width and/or length. Suggestions welcome. Since the crochet hook I was using apparently grew legs and walked off, I'm not totally averse to (waaah!) ripping all the border out and starting over.
  7. A Pleasure by Patricia Kristoffersen. This turn out so pretty! I really enjoy her patterns.
  8. Practicing my doily making skills. This is Springtime by Hazel Henry. I really have to learn to block better. Practice, Practice, Practice.
  9. This was a challenge for me. I found this pattern in a booklet (Coats Sewing Group #920 Bold Crochet Motifs) a friend gave to me a while back. It took a couple tries to start. It uses UK stitch terminology, but US measurements. There are no specific instructions to actually join the motifs, only instructed to follow the photo. Simply titled "Coffee Table Mat". I chose to make a smaller doily, just to see if I could. Yay!
