I am so glad you sent this message..I love what you did and I also felt that some people had been very harsh in their reply. Seems that if someone asks you to help them create something, you should work with them to accomplish what they are trying to achieve. Not, put them down for wanting their visions...isn't that what inventors do??? You are very talented and you did a wonderful job...and I'm also glad you spoke up for yourself!!
Thank you for your thoughts. I didn't think of crocheting from the raw edge with a different stitch and then adding a motif on top of the join...I was thinking of redoing it then sewing it back on but I do like your idea, I may even also add the same stitches to the last few rows of the blanket to make it look symmetrical...I feel more confident now that I have an alternative idea. I knew you guys could help me.
I am in the last stages of making a corner to corner crocheted baby blanket. I have a problem now that I didn't realize, the first 15 rows were crocheted to loosely and so now that the blanket is almost finished I see that it is not the square it should be. Can I take out those rows and redo them then somehow rejoin them to the rest of the blanket? Blanket is really nice except for the loose stitches it almost looks like I used too large of a needle in that section but I didn't. Also I have used leftover yarns so I would be joining different colors together. I have searched on line but haven't found an answer....hope someone here can help me. I know I could redo whole blanket but that would really upset me....Thank you in advance for your help. Lorraine
I remember them in the Bronx NY in the early 60's and they used to have a Black ribbon bow or wreath that they had on the front door to let you know there was a wake going on in that house. After that it became fashionable to go to funeral homes and this old custom became something of the past.
Hi, I guess I would be considered rude also because I crochet during performances at the local theatre groups I go to. I make sure I'm not in the front row where the actors could be distracted by my crocheting but, it keeps me from falling asleep during the show! I really don't even think the actors could see me because of the lighting on the stage. The only time I had a problem was when I dropped the aluminum crochet hook and it fell down the stairs, clink, clink, clink....now i use a bone hook so that doesn't make any noise if it should fall....My neighbor who I go to the shows with, now tells me not to forget my crocheting so I don't fall asleep....But, getting back to the subject it seems that is she was knitting she wasn't dancing and it was at the end of the reception....she was still observing the festivities. I don't see anything wrong with it better than being a falling down drunk which does happen at some weddings. I'm glad she was comfortable enough to knit. Lorraine
Hi, I was wondering if it could be for lacing up the leather boots women wore years ago. I have something that looks like a hook that was used for lacing up the boots also and something about the thickness of this reminds me of that.
How about Crafty Needles and Yarns
I crochet in local theatre in the dark so I don't fall asleep during the performance. I just got a lighted crochet hook so I can see better and I will sit further back in the theatre so I don't disturb the actors. I haven't used it yet but I do hope it will work. I also got the crochet hook because I am having vision problems.
