Common for calming dogs and cats, the Thundershirt is made for humans, too. They work.
As with ANY type of training, first you have to get their attention.
Would you be able to leave long floats or tie knots to add new colors (not crochet over if the color shows through) and then cover them with a solid color backing? I have several that have been double-layered by doing an edging around back-to-back squares and those are the ones I grab most often.
And he's thinking right back at you, "See, if I was properly fed, I wouldn't be skinny enough to fit through here." lol
And be sure to wear your tallest socks so you can stay warm on rainy days...
Potato Candy! My mother made the PB Spins and also a ball version that was dipped in chocolate.
And the little Czech boy is sooo cute.
I like this chart because it shows rounds in different colors. And if you crochet right to left, you just follow the color row counterclockwise to where it goes up to the next color, most often with an upright chain to start the new round.
If you crochet left-handed, you can turn the chart upside down and still move counterclockwise around the chart to use the symbols in the pattern order. Your piece will look a little different from the way the chart is oriented but you will still be able to use the chart if you don't readily have flipping capabilities to reprint it.
Three upright ovals just under the first dot (righthand first dot) are the ch3 you do to start the round, then 2dc, then ch3 to go around the corner, etc.
After you do the whole round (and come back to that standup ch3) you are going to sl st into the top of the ch3 and do 3 more sl sts to slide you into position to do the ch3 + dc2 to get the next round ready to go.
Does that help or should I try again?
Things look a little different on the northern prairie. But the wind is easing and one of our interstates has reopened so the storm is abating.
This is the chart I use for teaching crochet charts.
When I shop this way, I refer to the purchase as "accidental". I've come home with a microwave and a car this way (among other things - - like YARN!).
Watching all them fall is kind of like ripping out a big project you've decided you don't like.
Exactly what I was thinking - - domino frogging!
Another source of rubber pieces for jar openers is a whoopie cushion from the party goods department. Two layers = two openers so you can share with a friend.
