Hi, Could you please tell
me what "sc in the hump of the 2nd ch from the hook" means? I want to make your
summer water bottle cozy. I don't understand the hump part. Very nice looking
Thank you very much.
>)))'> WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. <')))
<< reply >>
Each chain has a top loop
and a bottom loop on the front side and on the back there is a little hump.
When you make the foundation
chain (the chains made to begin your project) the front side of the chain will
look like little hearts sitting on top of each other. When you flip the chain
over to the back side it looks like a little row of humps. Work the stitches
into those humps.
RE: crochet question
I love your website! I am
trying to teach myself to crochet and its going ok but patterns really stump
I made a bunch of granny squares for a scarf but don't know how to join them
Can you help me?
There are numerous ways
to join crocheted squares/motifs.
Take a look at this page for joining ideas:
I am trying to figure out
what a gusset is? Can you help
A gusset is
"a triangular insert, as in the seam of a garment, for added strength or expansion".
This page explains it a
little better with reference to a knitted sock pattern:
Gussets are also used in
other patterns like mittens.
I adjusted your single-crochet
heart pattern for double crochet
and thought you would enjoy seeing the results.
Kind Regards & Happy Easter!

Re: Crochet question
i dont know if you can help
me but i am working on a horse project and im not understanding a part of the
pattern. It says: Rnd 16: ch 21, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each of next
19 ch sts, sc in each of next 30 sc in Rnd 15, working across opposite side
of foundation ch, sc in each of next 20 ch sts, sc in end sc (71 sc) do not
join but work in a sporal as before. the part that im not getting is the working
across opposite side of foundation ch. Is there any why that you can explain
to me what im supposed to do. Thank you
Working in the opposite
side of the foundation chain is easier than you may think. All you do is work
all the way around the chain (on both sides of it) instead of just down one
side like we usually do.
Think of a foundation chain...
you work stitches down the chain like normal... to work in the opposite side
of the foundation chain you work around the end of the chain and back up the
other side of the chain... without turning which makes an oval shape.
In your case.. you have
15 row/rounds already completed when you are instructed to chain 21... then
you work a single in the second chain from the hook and a single in each of
the next 19 stitches. Then you work a single in each of th enext 30 single crochets
on round 15 which brings you back to the opposite side of the 21 chains you
made to begin Rnd 16... work one single in each of the next 20 chains.. then
work a single in the end single crochet. When you finish you should have 71
single crochets for Round 16. Do not join... keep working in a spiral.

Katherine Lee has an eye for style and a definite knack for creating beautiful
I was really happy with the large colorful project photos.
There's something for everyone!
The aspect of Fabulous and Flirty Crochet that stood out to me was the section
on the yarns used in the patterns.
One page shows "actual size" photos of the yarns which makes it super
easy to substitute other yarns if you want to.
For those who stay strictly to the recommended yarn in a pattern Katherine has
included a yarn resource list.
The projects are very fashionable and perfect for gift giving... though I'm
sure you'll have to make something for yourself :o)
I can't wait to try the Flirty Skirt and the Ruffled Strap Tank.

A woman walked up to the
manager of a department store. "Are you hiring any help?" she asked.
"No," he said. "We already
have all the staff we need."
"Then would you mind getting
someone to wait on me?" she asked.
A little girl became restless
as the preacher's sermon dragged on and on.
Finally, she leaned over to her mother and whispered,
"Mommy, if we give him the money now, will he let us go?"
A little girl was sitting
on her grandfather's lap as he read her a bedtime story. From time to time,
she would take her eyes off the book and reach up to touch his wrinkled cheek.
She was alternately stroking her own cheek, then his again. Finally she spoke
up, "Grandpa, did God make you?"
"Yes, sweetheart," he answered,
"God made me a long time ago."
"Oh," she paused, "Grandpa,
did God make me too?"
"Yes, indeed, honey," he
said, "God made you just a little while ago."
Feeling their respective
faces again, she observed, "God's getting better at it, isn't he ?"
Ms. Terri asked her Sunday
School class to draw pictures of their favorite Bible stories.
She was puzzled by Kyle's picture, which showed four people on an airplane,
so she asked him which story it was meant to represent.
"The Flight to Egypt ,"
was his reply.
Pointing at each figure,
Ms. Terri said,
"That must be Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus.
But who's the fourth person?"
"Oh, that's Pontius - the

a pastor, write a sermon.
"How do you know what to say?" he asked.
"Why, God tells me."
"Oh, then why do you keep crossing things out?"
My cell phone quit as I
tried to let my wife know that I was caught in freeway gridlock and would be

my wife gave me the longest kiss ever.

A little boy was attending
his first wedding.
After the service, his cousin asked him, "How many women can a man marry?"
"Sixteen," the boy responded.
His cousin was amazed that he had an answer so quickly.
"How do you know that?"
"Easy," the little boy said.
"All you have to do is add it up, like the pastor said,
4 better, 4 worse, 4 richer, 4 poorer."
A prisoner in jail received
a letter from his wife:
"I have decided to plant some vegetables in the back garden. When is the best
time to plant them?"
The prisoner, knowing that
the prison guards read all mail, replied in a letter:
"Dear wife, whatever you do, do not touch the back garden. That is where I hid
all the money."
A week or so later, he received
another letter from his wife:
"You won't believe what happened.
Some men came with shovels to the house and dug up all the back garden."
The prisoner wrote another
"Dear wife, now is the best time to plant the vegetables."
A little boy returned from
Sunday school with a new perspective on the Christmas story. He had learned
all about the Wise Men from the East who brought gifts to the Baby Jesus. He
was so excited he could hardly wait to tell his parents.
As soon as he arrived home,
he immediately began, "I learned all about the very first Christmas in Sunday
"There wasn't a Santa Claus
way back then, so these three skinny guys on camels had to deliver all the toys!
"And Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer with his nose so bright wasn't there yet,
so they had to have this big spotlight in the sky to find their way around!"
With only two tellers working
at the bank, the line I was standing in was moving very slowly. As I waited,
I began to fill in my withdrawal slip. Not sure of the date, I turned and asked
the woman behind me.
"It's the fifth," she replied.
A man from the back of the
line advised, "Don't write it in yet!"
A wife and husband both
talked in their sleep.
She loved auctions; his hobby was golf.
The other night, during a deep sleep, the man yelled, "Fore!"
His wife, also in a deep sleep and not missing a beat, yelled back, "Four fifty!"
I was packing for my business

Trying to keep her entertained,
I reached out and stuck her tiny fingers in my mouth and said ,
'Daddy's gonna eat your fingers,' pretending to eat them.
I went back to packing,
looked up again and my daughter was standing on the bed staring at her fingers
with a devastated look on her face. I said, 'What's wrong, honey?'
She replied, 'What happened
to my booger?'
