    I am crocheting some pads

    for animal shelters so the cats and small dogs have something comfortable to sit or lay on. The requested size is 19inches square which is hard for me to get right with the number of chains I start with in crochet or stitches I cast on with knitting. I am never consistent in...

    Weigh In On The "war"

    I do not knit and crochet. I only crochet and it is commonly mistaken for knitting. People go on to tell me that I need to learn to knit. For their own convenience, I suppose. The thing is, I can not see where learning to knit would enable me to do anything that I can not achieve...

    My Dog Is Jealous of My Knitting/crochet

    Seriously.  Sometimes when I am sitting in my recliner working on a project, she will jump up on me and put her butt right on my yarn so that i can't continue (plus getting dog hair all over it).  Then she just looks me right in the eye like "What the hell is...

    I just made this Yorkshire rose to wear to a

    yarn festival this weekend, all the members of a Facebook group I'm in will be wearing white roses to identify ourselves. I found a picture of it and fell in love with the design before discovering there were no working links to the pattern. I just spent the last few hours...

    I Find It Relaxing...

    I much prefer knitting than I do crocheting, but I do both. It keeps my hands busy and entertains me, so I enjoy it.

    Yarn Therapy

    I learned to knit and crochet when I was 12. I taught myself using books I checked out from the library, and I spent so much of my time knitting. I didn't really have many people to give things to, and the people I did have in my life wouldn't have liked my handmade gifts, so I...

    What Projects Are You Working On?

    I am a self-taught, off-and-on knitter and crocheter.  I love to craft (sew, scrapbook, crossstitch, etc.) because I like to make things myself when I have the time, either for the cost-effectiveness or the pride of saying I did it.  Sometimes I...

    I Have An Obsession With Yarn Crafts.

    I learned to crochet when I was 8 or 9. Actually, I learned to chain, and exactly one stitch: the double crochet, in the back loop, for a ripple on a blanket I never finished for my doll. Maybe if my mom knew more than that herself, I would not have moved onto macram...
