Adding fringe to a project is a simple task. Cut several pieces of yarn approximately 12-14 inches long (you can experiment to get the length you want). Insert hook into the stitch where you want a fringe. Fold all strands of yarn in half. Using the hook, draw the folded ends of the yarn up through the stitch and pull the loose ends through the folded end. This completes a fringe and all you need to do is tighten up the knot by pulling on the strands of yarn. Continue with this method until you have added all of your fringe. You can trim the ends even with scissors after all fringes are added.

do you have a video on the rest of the alphabet? i'm trying to make a "b" and i'm having a problem with the curves?
<< Reply >>
I do not have videos of each individual alphabet written with this method. It's a personal preference as to how you shape your letters. Try writing in letters that have more of a block style.
Subject: Crazy Scarf
Am wanting to make your "Crazy Scarf". Just one question...does the "tr" stitch mean triple crochet?
<< Reply >>
Yes, “tr” is a treble crochet, also known as a triple crochet.
Yarn over twice, then insert your hook into the stitch or space indicated.
Yarn over and pull up a loop. (4 loops on hook.)
Yarn over and draw through 2 loops. (3 loops on hook.)
Yarn over and draw through 2 loops. (2 loops on hook.)

Thank you for the lesson on ruffles. I put them on the edge of a shawl, and used the triple crochet stitch and the ruffles came out great! This is my first time attempting ruffles, I love the way it looks.

is a wonderful addition to any crochet library.
I've had numerous requests over the years of what to crochet for boys.
Crobots are definitely the answer!
This 96-page book is filled with numerous types of Crobot patterns as well as well-illustrated instructions for the
crochet stitches, assembly stitches and other embellishments used in the patterns.
The patterns are well written, some of the book is written in a small font but the pictures are wonderful. NOTE: This book comes to you with a safety warning regarding the small parts used in the patterns.
Therefore, please use your own discretion as to the age of the child you intend the gift for.

My two daughters were having a discussion about family resemblance.
"I look like Mom," said my nine-year-old, "but I have Dad's eyes and Dad's lips."
The six-year-old said, "And I look just like Dad, but I have light hair." Then she turned to me. "Mom," she asked, "what does Dad have to do with us being born anyway?"
Her older sister jumped right in. "Don't be stupid, Christina. Dad is the one who drove Mom to the hospital."
After ordering a milkshake, a man had to leave his seat
in the restaurant to make a telephone call.
Since he didn't want anyone to take his drink, he took
a paper napkin, wrote on it,
"The World's Strongest Weightlifter,"
and left it under his glass.
When he returned from making his call, the glass was empty.
Under it was a new napkin with new writing that said:
"Thanks for the treat!"
"The World's Fastest Runner"
Told my daughter that I could identify with my grandson's
response on the morning of his second day of kindergarten.
When she entered his room to arouse him for school again
he sat up in the bed and exclaimed, "But I went to school
My daughter explained that he would have to go every day
of the week.
He rubbed his eyes in confusion and asked," Did I sign up
for EVERY day"?
Little Darlene surprised her mother with the postscript
to her bedtime prayer:
"And dear Lord, please send the beautiful snow to
keep the little flowers warm through the winter."
Climbing into her bed, she confided to her mother:
"That time I fooled Him. I really wanted the snow
so I can go sledding with my new sled."
One Mother's Day at church, I noticed carts of little
potted flowers beside the altar. The pastor asked all
the children to come forward and pick out a plant for
My children and I had certainly survived some very hard
times, and this special bit of appreciation was just what
I was surprised when my children presented me with a small,
bedraggled flower plant. Yet I saw joy and pride in their
eyes, and asked them, out of all those beautiful flowers,
what had made them pick this plant for me?
My son said, "This one looked like it needed you, Mom."
Hurrying to catch the last bus for home, my son and I raced down the escalator in the subway station, and Ben darted into the waiting train. Just as I reached it, the door slammed shut.
Reacting instinctively, I ran along the platform abreast of the moving train, yelling: "Stop! Stop! My baby is in there all alone!"
To my amazement the train stopped, reversed, and the doors opened. I entered the car...to the furious glare of my 16- year-old son and the amused smiles of the other passengers.
I always took it for granted that a yard was three feet.
Then I bought a house in the country and started cutting
Now I know better!
The evening of my 41st birthday, my eight-year-old
daughter, Catherine, said a special prayer for me.
She began: "Dear God, please bless Mommy. She's
had a birthday and is getting really old."
Beside me, my husband was shaking with suppressed
laughter until she continued: "And please bless Daddy,
too. He's also at that difficult age."
The minister gave his Sunday morning service, as usual, but
this particular Sunday, it was considerably longer than
Later, at the door, shaking hands with parishioners as they
moved out, one man said, "Your sermon, Pastor, was simply
wonderful - so invigorating and inspiring and refreshing."
The minister of course, broke out in a big smile, only to
hear the man add, "Why I felt like a new man when I woke
I had always talked about my job a lot at home, and my young daughter had always expressed great interest. So I thought it would be a treat for her to spend the day with me at the office. Since I wanted it to be a surprise, I didn't tell her where we were going, just that it would be fun. Although usually a bit shy, she seemed excited to meet each colleague I introduced. On the way home, however, she seemed somewhat down.
"Didn't you have a nice time?" I asked.
"Well, it was okay," she responded. "But I thought it would be more like a circus."
Confused, I asked, "Whatever do you mean?"
She said, "Well, you said you work with a bunch of clowns, and I never got to see them!"
After hearing "Mommy, Mommy, Mommy" all day long from her
five little boys, KC said, "I am changing my name from Mommy
and I'm not telling anyone my new name."
Hours later, when KC tucked her sons into bed, "R.C." (age 4)
was crying in his bed.
KC said, "Honey, what's wrong?"
He said, "I don't know what to call you. Please tell me your
new name. I promise not to tell my brothers."
My friend's father is a locksmith in a resort town. Once he
saw a group of beach-goers park near his shop and dump trash
from their car on his property. As soon as they were out of
sight, the locksmith picked the lock on their car door, put
the garbage back inside and re-locked the car.
