Hi,

I just found your thread and what ya'll are doing. I do alot of charity work and send crocheted items all across the country for ill children, grieving families, cancer patients, etc. I would love to join in on your traveling hook to help make some squares for heart patients. Is it too late to join in or is the list always growing? Please let me know what I need to do to join.

Thankyou,

Betty F in TN

Love your squares, wildthing! looking forward to adding some of my own (and playing with a Jimbo hook, of course!) when my turn comes around. Crochet and giving - what a great combination!

Wildthing,

Those squares are great! Please share the pattern if you are able, or at least point us in the direction of the book we can get them from. I can't wait to get a hold of Jimbo's hook!

I am so proud of you ladies!! You have yet to stress me out over who has it where its going and sqs are very generous!!! Keep up the good hookin and get your orders in to Jimbo for a new hook!!! This traveling hook is a great idea and we could build his cabin with orders from just trying the hook

If Jimbo gets his whittlings done as fast as the members here want hooks he will build that cabin by the end of the year...let's see if we all bought one how long would it take him to finish...working 24/7 365 days a year , drinking ensure just to keep nourished, anyone want to guess?

Jimmie Lu I had the same idea for Jimbo.

I know I am not part of the trveling hook. The more I see these beautiful squares the more I wish I was part of the group. You all do such a wonderful job. I love the hook and I will be sure to buy a hook in the near future.

... so, looking at them, it appears that you added 4" borders? is that pretty much the way to expand a pattern to the size needed? then, I've got all sorts of patterns I could use! This is great! Thanks, Deborah for the inspiration - (but now I have no idea how to *narrow down* my pattern choices :eek)

thats all I did only because I really wanted to use the heart and sunflower pattern and only had books with 8" squares in them

I really admire the way you take a pattern and modify it to what you need! I'd like to be able to do that as well as you do - there are so many things I see that are great, but I can't use them the way they are presented.

 

Good thing I'm talented at frogging.... :frog
