Scarves for victims of abuse, pattern ideas added post 963


Recommended Posts

Ann, I've got a question. I've probably asked this before and you've probably answered but I can't remember. It must be the mad cow thing. :lol Anyway, does it matter what pattern we use for wristbands or should they be that one pattern you gave us before? I have a whole bag of simply soft leftovers and thought I could make some wristbands. But, since I'm easily bored, I thought I could try some other wristband patterns. Is that ok? :think

Sure, you can use other patterns! I just use that one because it's easy for me :lol! It's also a nice size. I hadn't really thought about getting into the larger/longer ones, you know what I mean ( I hope! LOL!) Can you tell I'm still confused from my time change thing this morning! :lol (note to others... my alarm clock automatically did the 1 hour time change and totally fouled up my day!):P

Hello my dear friends, I know that it has been quite a while since we have chatted.  I'm sure some of you are wondering if this project is still active.  The answer is a great big YES! Lol!  I want t

Yes, they are talking of more snow,bleh.  I guess winter is going to go out like a lion, lol.  I've never cared much for the heat when I've visited FL, but I wouldnt mind some of it right about now. 

Thank you so much.  I'll keep a look out.  You wouldn't believe it.  Now I'm battling kidney stones! It never stops!    Whatcha gonna do though, I just pick up my hooks and try to ignore the pain,

Congrats Cherri. You do so much for everyone. Thanks for the welcome here and thanks Ann for the info and address. Cherri, I was looking at your blog and saw you did that Mile-A-Minute scarf in the dark colors. I just "tried" that pattern and was having a heck of a time with the end. I like how the pattern says "easy" and I didn't find it easy at all, did you?? Did you find the pattern confusing or was it just me. haha probably me since it took me forever to learn Krystal's daisy square. I just don't understand the end with all the 2 tr, ch 3, 2 tr. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, minnisoda! To try to answer your question, the ends of the first round consist of 3 v-stitches. So, in each end, do a (2trcl, ch3, 2trcl) 3 times. The first ch4 counts as the beginning of the first 2trcl. I hope that makes sense. :lol Also, I've just used a trc v-stitch (trc, ch3, trc) throughout the whole thing instead of the 2trcl. It looks just as nice. In fact, that's what I did on the last one.

I hope this makes sense. :yes If it doesn't let me know and I'll try again. :lol:hug

Thanks Cherri. After reading your explanation and looking closely at the pic in your blog I see how it makes sense. You're a sweetheart for helping out those of us in need!

That happened to me too, only my husband had to leave for the airport by 6:30 AM :eek

 

I actually just wanted to let you know to keep an eye out for a small box from me. I finally got my act together enough to mail the scarves!

What's getting to me is the fact that it's DARK by five p.m. all of a sudden. Sure, it's bright at 6 a.m. but I don't get to appreciate that, even if I am up at that time: I'd have to prop my eyelids open with matchsticks to notice :(

 

Finished another scarf last night and started another straightaway. Thank God I don't smoke: based on my crocheting habits, it's safe to guess I'd be a chain-smoker...

Minnisoda, I realized that I told you the wrong thing. :eek And do you know when I thought of it? Right before I was about to fall asleep last night. I almost got up to post the right thing. :lol I think I'm insane. :rofl

Anyway, when I said that sometimes I just do a v-stitch of (trc, ch3, trc), I really meant to say (2trc, ch3, 2trc). Sorry about that. :(

There! I feel much better now!!!! :yes:lol:hug

LOL, I'm so glad that you wrote this and that Cherri gave some pointers. I had so much trouble with this pattern that I couldn't pick up a hook for 2 weeks after I tried it! :lol

I feel like I'm walking around like a zombie all day long, lol! Even the dogs seem to be effected :think. Now, of course, we change the clocks this weekend, so I'll be totally confused all over again! :lol

 

Is there such a thing as a chain-crocheter? :lol If there is then there are a lot of us! :lol

"Chain crocheter" that's an interesting concept. My first thought was someone that only crochets chains:lol. Since I finish one project and start the next and some I don't finish but start another I guess that falls under chain crocheter, so count me in.

I have two scarves done and I'm thinking of trying the mile a minute one everyone was talking about. I use to do mile a minute ghans all the time and thought they were so easy. I'll let you know how it goes.
