    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!

    Thanks!
    I will post pictures when it is done. I have a tendency to finish things I make for others far before anything I make for myself or the home. Hopefully the fact that the saddle blanket is for my horse will motivate me to work faster.

    Hello, My Friend!! I have not been on here in a long while and have missed you TERRIBLY!! Yes, I crochet (some) but not as beautifully as you!! I learned in the 5th grade from our teacher! I have NEVER completed anything, possibly because I have the attention span of a gnat! Anyway, great job and I would love to hear more about them!

    I found a site called Fabric.com that offers free shipping on orders over 35 dollars, so will be getting some yarns there.

    I used to crochet a lot, and did baby things, sweaters, afghans, but stopped for a while. I recently started up again though, but here where I live? Except for wrongmart, no place to buy yarn.

    I also picked up the Knifty Knitter I had in bedroom for last 4 years or so, and have been making hats with it. Got the round looms, and have had so much fun I bought set of long looms too, but don't like the Boye? So want to see if can find Knifty Knitter long looms instead.

    I found some yarn at Hobby Lobby called I Love This Yarn, that is really nice recently, and wish I had place to store more, or more time to work on things.

    Do you have any of the antique doilie books that used to be everywhere you bought thread? Those were some awesome patterns.

    And there is a vintage crochet site, that has patterns from 50's on back to 1800's? Really interesting things on there.

    Glad to find others that do crafts too.

    Hello!

    How funny, I was just thinking about you the other day, how the job front is going and if the hay situation has improved....
    I have not been on in awhile myself, and then some one responded to this old thread, and here we are!

    Thanks for the compliments. I have been so busy with other things this winter, I'm very sad to say I have not even been able to pick up a hook and yarn.

    Hi Palomine,

    That free shipping is a great deal! Might have to bookmark that site for down the road, but right now my yarn storage is at maximum capacity.


    I also have the round looms, I like them, but I guess I find them kind of limiting as far as what you can make and variety of stitches. But they sure do make quick work of a hat!
    I've never tried the long looms because of the above mentioned, I guess I do not grasp the concept? Not sure how you could make an afghan on one. Would be great to see a demo, then maybe I'd figure it out....

    I do actually have some very old pattern books that an "older" friend of mine passed along to me, I really love them!
    I also was able to pick up a book at JoAnns that claims they are heirloom patterns, also very nice.

    And yes! If you really take some time you can find all kinds of really wonderful patterns, old and new, for free off the internet. Some times I have to admit, technology comes in handy.
    Drives my hubby kind of nuts, he does not understand why I feel the need to "collect" patterns. I have a whole slew of 'em.

    Do you have the link, or name, for the Vintage site you found? Love to take a peek at that!
