    Aybody wanna help me out with crocheting a baby blanket?.....by April obviously you can't physically help me but some quick and easy patterns would be lovely! Luckily my church has a knitting group a few memebers of which crochet and a friend has opened her yarn tub to me she also recommended a 5.5 or 6 hook so I got both the dollar store I figured they were a buck each so why not get both and as around before deciding which one. Also what are some soft and easy to work with yarns?

    I do a bit of knitting but not very often and with chunky wool because I'm incredibly impatient with it

    Hi
    Samstead.

    For a baby-blanket there are a bunch of yarns that would work out nice, they are very soft, and have alot of nice colors to choose from.
    Red Heart brand Baby Clouds, and Bernat makes Baby Coordinates Yarn, as well as Baby Blanket Yarn, Coats & Clark TLC Baby Yarn.......just to name a few.
    If you have a JoAnns, or any crafting shop like that in your area, just go browse through and see what you like the feel and look of.
    You can also pick up some really inexpensive "starter" books with the basic stitches illustrated, LOVE mine, even after years I still refer to it when trying to figure out new/harder patterns.

    That is great that you have a church group to attend, it make it so much easier when you have others that can help you figure things out in person.
    Oh, and you mentioned some one was letting you use yarn of theirs didn't you? I think any soft worsted weight yarn would work just fine as well...

    Also there are just tons of free patters online, and most are rated "beginner", "intermediate" etc.
    I would suggest you do some Googling, you will have so many great patters to choose from!

    Hope I did not babble-on too much for ya, hope it helps you out a little.
    Would love to see a photo of your finished project once it is done!

    Good luck and have fun, if you are like me you will find it very addictive and relaxing.

    That sounds pretty, I like the pink and orange/tangerine color combo.
    Wish we had a Micheal's close by, we live in a pretty small town so I have to make do with Walmart and a small JoAnn's for any yarn I need....

    Does your wife have a pattern for the mini ear net?
    I would love a copy if she does!
    You should post a pick of your mini wearing it when it is finished too, that would be great!

    Hi,
    I crochet but am still fairly new at it though.
    Four years maybe but mostly in the wintertime while watching tv. I have tried to crochet more but my wrists are bad so I have learned that I have to pace myself. On a good week I might be able to crochet two or three evenings for around two hours at a time.
    It makes getting a project actually done a challange, so I try to stick to quick things like scarves, bags, flowers, or pieced items like granny square (or variations of) stuff.

    My current project I just started is a saddle pad for my Aussie saddle. I have alpacas (and try to spin too) and plan to try crocheting the pad first then felting it.
    I'm also working on a throw that is halfway done using Homespun yarn. There is a craft store 30 minutes from me that offers the Homespun in mill end and odd lots of three skeins for $5. I find it a little bit of a hassle to crochet with it, as opposed to knitting or looming, but I prefer to crochet while watching tv because the other two take more focus.

    If this is the thread I saw earlier today with the beautiful doilies, then my compliments to you. They are just beautiful! Four years ago I probably couldn't even say the word doily without pulling a face, but now I understand.
    The purple pineapple is the prettiest one to me, especially since I can't do pineapples yet.

    Hi
    Lockwood.
    That's funny, I am also a winter-weather crocheter! Too busy with horses during the warmer months....

    I'm sure I am not the only one, but I would really like to see how your saddle pad comes out, that will be a fantastic project! Very special as it was made from one of your own alpacas.
    Promise to come back and post pics for us?

    And thank-you so much for the compliments on my doilies!
    I know a lot of people don't get the whole "
    doilie-thing", I guess I am just an old soul at heart....
    Oh, and the lavender pineapple, was one I made for my Mother's 70th birthday, so extra special, and one of my favorites!
