Hope that's how you do it... if not, go to lionbrand.com and in the search bar put "bath collection". It will list out seperately all the washcloths and bath mit. I will take some pictures in the not too distant future and get them up!

Welcome. I think it's good to have more than one craft, so if you are feeling a little burned out on one you can take a break with another one. Can't wait to see your pics.

Hello & welcome. There are a bunch of video lessons on youtube & other places. Also let us know if we can help at all.

Hi ladies! I signed up for a crochet class coming up in a few weeks- I can't wait! I have a drawer full of granny squares from an afghan my grandmother was making for me some twenty something years ago and am looking forward to finishing what she started for me.

Will I be able to make anything decent after a 101 class? All your projects are wonderful, but I don't even sew beyond a running stitch.

Hi Christy! Welcome to the club.

You should be able to do some nice stuff with a class like that. It will also give you a pretty good start on more complicated projects.

Thanks for the ideas Our Michael's only offer cake decorating and there's no Hobby Lobby here in South Florida = but I'll check the senior centers and see what I come up with

Hi everyone,

I learnt how to knit when I was 8, but after learning how to crochet half-way through last year, I prefer to do that. I am currently crocheting a blanket for winter...it is taking quite a while but I am slowly getting there! I also do the tops of handtowels as presents for grandparents and aunties. Crocheting is another great way to 'use' time well...that IS after making a handful of cards!

I must go finish my neice's baby blanket. I have most of the squares sewn together, but dread having to go do the rest of them. I just want it to magically finish itself so I can put it in the mail ...

Hello & welcome. I think crochet & paper crafting compliment each other well. I hope you'll share some pics of your projects.

Once I finish the flower, I am going to make a hat and attach it for my daughters christmas pictures.

Thank you so much! I am definitey going to do this one. Right now I am doing some minature granny square bookmarks with #10 thread and a #12 needle. I saw the idea on a Martha Stewart email. They will make great gifts in Christmas cards.

You're welcome. Lucy(attic24) has a bunch of great patterns on her blog.

That sounds cool. I'd love to see pics.

I was almost done sewing the granny squares together. Almost. And realized I was one square short. I almost left it that way, with a corner square missing.
But I made the last square. And realized I would run out of white yarn before I finished edging the border....and I can't get to the store until Friday... I JUST WANT IT DONE!!!

Default Love Crocheting...

Wow, my project list is growing...what a bunch of talented ladies! Thanks for sharing your creations on your inspiring blogs.

Well, my Mamaw showed me how to crochet when I was young. Through the years I would pick up a needle & yarn. Only making the few rows of stitches I knew how. lol Many years later a co-worker showed me basic knitting to make scarves. After finishing my first scarf I had to try crocheting again, oh my! I'm truly centered when I'm in my grove crocheting...bliss.

My favorite projects are the kid projects. One was a flower pencil, very cute. I can't remember which company since I get all their newsletters by e-mail. Do my best to find the pattern, pic of finished flower and post.

Also, working on my blog. Hope to have it up and running soon to share.

HA! Done! I ended up with about 18 inches white yarn left over. I'm not sure I'll attempt another one. It is kinda cute though. The original pattern called for a raspberry pink and spring green, with the white, but my niece is having a boy.

Whoohoo! Good for you. And it looks great. I love the color combo.

I just started 2 granny square afghans. One for my nephew & one for my great niece. I really enjoy them.

Beautiful! Great job - I have not done any granny squares yet, but actually have a pattern for a vest done with small squares. Maybe that's a good place to start.

Oh, Brillant Color Combo...your niece is going to love it! Fabulous keepsake for her soon to be bundle of joy. Now I need to put granny squares on my list of things to try. Thanks for sharing.

Happy Crocheting,

looks fantastic!

Can a knitter join in? I do crochet too, but I am on a knitting spree right now. I am having fun making hot pads/dish cloths while learning new stitches and patterns. Someday I hope to actually make a sweater but I'm not quite up for that yet.

I want to learn to knit, if for nothing else, to make the dish cloths that you knit from one corner to the other - you cast on with like 4 stitches, and then make increases in each row to the middle (makes a triangle), and decrease again down the other side to make the square. My granny made me one years ago and I love it. But I have great trouble using two needles at once.

Can a knitter join in? I do crochet too, but I am on a knitting spree right now. I am having fun making hot pads/dish cloths while learning new stitches and patterns. Someday I hope to actually make a sweater but I'm not quite up for that yet.
Beth,

Have any pictures of what your working on...would love to see them.

Of course! Come right in, pull up a comfy chair & show us what you're working on. LOL

This poinsettia is gorgeous! It will look adorable on your santa hat! I would love to see a pix when you're done! : )
