“You discover your identity and purpose through a relationship with Jesus Christ."
~~ Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life:
What on Earth Am I Here for? ~~

"Behold, days are coming," declares the Lord, "when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, not like the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, although I was a husband to them," declares the Lord. But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days," declares the Lord, "I will put My law within them, and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. And they shall not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother saying, 'Know the Lord,' for they shall all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them," declares the Lord, "for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more."

Jeremiah 31:31-34

And while they were eating, Jesus took some bread, and after a blessing, He broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, "Take, eat: this is My body." And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you: for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins. But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father's kingdom."

Matthew 26:26-29


And opening his mouth, Peter said: "I most certainly understand now that God is not one to show partiality, but in every nation the man who fears Him and does what is right, is welcome to Him. The word which He sent to the sons of Isrel, preaching, peace through Jesus Christ (He is Lord of all)-- you yourselves know the thing which took place throughout all Judea, starting from Galilee, after the baptism which John proclaimed. You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good, and healing all who were oppressed by the devil; for God was with Him. And we are witnesses of all the things He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem. And they also put Him to death by hanging Him on a cross. God raised Him up on the third day, and granted that He should become visible, not to all the people, but to wintnesses who were chosen beforehand by God, that is, to us, who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead. And He ordered us to preach to the people, and solemnly to testify that this is the One who has been appointed by God as Judge of the living and the dead. Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through His name everone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins."

Acts 10:34-43


What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace might increase? May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it? Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, in order that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, that our body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin; for he who has died is freed from sin. Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, is never to die again; death no longer is master over Him. For the death that He died, He died to sin, once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body that you should obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law, but under grace.

Romans 6:1-14

Tension or Gauge refers to how loose or tight you crochet your stitches. Some patterns list measurements for a certain number of stitches and/or rows. This tells you if your tension or gauge meets what is recommended for your pattern. If not, adjust your hook size accordingly.
















"On-line encyclopedia of knitting and crochet facts"





Be careful when choosing yarn for a project.
Some yarns can be very difficult to work with.
Smooth yarns are the easiest to use, while "novelty" yarns can be very difficult to work with due to the texture.
When using novelty yarn you may need to increase your hook size in order to see the stitches... keep this in mind if the intended project requires you to work in gauge.

Re: 9x13_Casserole_Tote

I am a beginning crocheter and was wondering on this pattern when you start working on the rounds should I be slip stitching the rounds together before I start the next one? Thank you!

Rebecca Krause

<< Reply >>

It's been quite a while since I designed this pattern but I do believe you should
"Join with a sl st in the first st."
after Rounds 18 and 19.

I also noticed a typo... For R22-23... you should Rep R21 (not R2).
The only difference in R2 and R21 is one is a "row" and the other is a "round".

Thanks so much for your email!

How to Crochet - Tips about Baby's ABC's Afghan



<< Comments >>

The directions published on your website from the wrapper image state that you use a size D hook. Is this correct? I have never tried such a small hook with a size 4 yarn like Caron Simply Soft.

Laura Young

<< Reply >>

A size D hook is what is called for on the pattern label.
Personally, I like to use a size G hook with Bernat Baby Coordinates yarn.



Re: barbs floppy brim hat

hi there,

this pattern is very cute, but i am confused with the brim

row 14 does not not indicate an increase in stitches but says (170) which is 50 more than previous row

row 14 shows an increase, but also says (170)

I am new to crochet so I am a little confused.



<< reply >>

On Row 14 each time you work the FPDC around the “same st”, it adds a stitch.



RE: ABC baby afghan

The "I" in the ABC baby afghan pattern is incorrectly written.

Lorraine Woods

<< Reply >>

Thank you for your email.
I am aware that the letter "I" is graphed incorrectly in relation to the other letters in the pattern.
This pattern is not my design. The pattern is posted with permission from Caron International, therefore
I must post it verbatim.

Hi I am having a difficult time getting to the free pattern list or seeing pictures of the patterns and possibly printing them. What can be done to fix this problem? I am not the smartest person when it come to using the computer. So the simpler instructions given work best for me.
Thank You
Sylvia Ringnalda

Are you referring to the patterns in the newsletter or on the website, in general?



Re: Hanging toilet roll cover

Can you please tell me how many balls to use to make this as its lovely.
Says 4ply but not how many eg ... 100g ball or more ??? Thanks



<< Reply >>

The pattern uses less than one regular size skein of yarn.
Hope you enjoy it!


RE: Dog patterns

Do you have the patterns the dogs are wearing I would the pattern that dixie wearing red dress and black trim.

Linda Jean Pidgeon

<< Reply >>

I don't recall a dog named Dixie.
I can tell you that all of the sweaters featured in
The Dog House were all made using the Dog Sweater pattern on this page:
The sweater is adjustable to fit any breed.
Each sweater was embellished by the owner/crocheter.

Re: Puff_Stitch_Heart_Afghan_Square

It would be great if it could be able to download pdf

I'm not sure what is causing the pattern not to print.
When I use Chrome, the page fails to show up for me to print but when I use Firefox it does.
Do you have another browser you can use?



Please could you crochet a tablecloth tutorial?

The Incident - True story about how God works

This is about my Father In Law, James Hamblin.
We asked for and received prayer from many of our crochet family after his accident and during his recovery process. For those who do not know, James fell in October causing multiple injuries which took months to overcome. He is home now and doing well.

This is his story!

Joey and his classmates had just finished a tour of the
local firehouse. Before each student could leave, the
fire chief quizzed him.

The fire chief asked little Joey, "What do you do if your
clothes catch on fire?"

Joey replied promptly, "I don't put them on!"


Although I knew I had put on a few pounds, I didn't
consider myself overweight until the day I decided
to clean my refrigerator.

I sat on a chair in front of the appliance and reached
in to wipe the back wall.

While I was in this position, my teenage son came into
the kitchen. "Hi, Mom," he said. "Whatcha doin', having

A lady noticed her husband standing on the bathroom scale,
sucking in his stomach. Thinking he was trying to weigh
less with this maneuver, she commented, "I don't think that's

"Sure it does," he said. "It's the only way I can see the


An eccentric philosophy professor gave a one question final
exam after a semester dealing with a broad array of topics.

The class was already seated and ready to go when the professor
picked up his chair, plopped it on his desk and wrote on the
board: "Using everything we have learned this semester, prove
that this chair does not exist."

Fingers flew, erasers erased, notebooks were filled in furious
fashion. Some students wrote over 30 pages in one hour attempting
to refute the existence of the chair.

One member of the class however, was up and finished in less
than a minute.

Weeks later when the grades were posted, the rest of the group
wondered how he could have gotten an "A" when he had barely
written anything at all. His answer consisted of two words:
"What chair?"


Police officer: "Can you identify yourself, sir?"

Driver pulls out his mirror and says: "Yes, it's me"


During a practical exercise at a military police base,
the instructor was giving the class instruction in
unarmed self-defense.

After he presented a number of different situations in
which they might find themselves, he asked a student,
"What steps would you take if someone were coming at
you with a large, sharp knife?"

The student replied, "BIG ones."

A conversation.



I was teaching four little kids how to play Go Fish, and the
luck of the draw just wasn't with little Jimmy. After losing
the third game in a row the red-faced boy protested, "I don't
like this game, it's not fair!"
I tried to explain that he should learn how to be a good loser.
He retorted, "You're the teacher, when are you going to teach
me to win!"

I'd like to buy a new boomerang please.

Also, can you tell me how to throw the old one away?


A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother, "Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today."

The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool. "That's interesting." she said. "How do you make babies?"

"It's simple," replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'i' and add 'es'."
