The following was sent to me by my friend, Ann Guidry.
A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; even as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
Thou shalt not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people; but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I am Jehovah.
If ye love me, ye will keep my commandments.
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.
For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.

Hi - I just joined your site and love it already. Thanks so much for being there to help with some difficult questions.
I'm hoping someone can remember this pattern from the past. I tried looking online but didn't find anything. Since I don't know the name of the item I'll just try to describe it. It is a pot holder or a hot pad and it's crocheted on the diagonal and it has only one closing seam and the closing seam is not on an edge. If anyone can point me in a direction I would love it. Thanks so much Ann in Bend, Oregon

You're welcome Ann.
I believe you are referring to the hotpad pattern featured on this page:

Re: NO-SEW TOWEL TOPPER 1
DEAR LISA, I AM SO SORRY TO BOTHER YOU WITH THIS AGAIN, BUT I DO SO WANT TO "MASTER" THIS TOWEL TOPPER.AND AM DETERMINED NOT TO GIVE UP ON IT. I FINALLY FIGURED OUT HOW TO DO THE "SKIRT" PART. BIT NOW I AM CONFUSED OVER THE "FLAP" PART. IS THIS JUST A BUTTON-HOLE? OR SOMETHING THAT COMES DOWN OVER THE BUTTON? I CANNOT FIGURE IT OUT FROM THE PICTURE OR THE INSTRUCTIONS. ANY INFORMATION YOU CAN GIVE ME WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. YOU HAVE BEEN MOST KIND........THANK-YOU!.......DIANE P. FROM CT.
<< reply >>
The "Flap" is just an addition to the end of the handle that forms the button hole.
RE: Christmas Bun Cover
Many thanks for your xmas
bun cover pattern would there be any chance that you have it in knitting?
Thanks in anticipation Linda Chapman
<< reply >>
You're very welcome. Sorry,
but I'm not that good at knitting yet.
I haven't found any free patterns for knitted bun covers.
I wonder if you could use a portion of a knitted preemie hat pattern for a bun cover?
Something like this one but without the band:
If a pattern calls for circular needles can I use straight needles instead? If so is the sizing the same for straight and circular needles? I cannot find anything of Google that will tell me. Thank you if you can help me. Christine from Australia.
<< reply >>
Sizing should be the same for straight and circular crochet hooks. You shouldn't need any circular hooks for regular crocheting... only for larger items made using tunisian stitches.
could you please tell me how to connect the yarn when changing colors. Thank You
<< reply >>
Take a look at this page:
This should help you learn to change colors as well as what to do with the unused color.
What does" cr "stand for?

SweaterBabe.com's Fabulous & Flirty Crochet
I'm so happy to have it in my crochet library.
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.

I took my 5 year old grandson to the optometrist to pick up his new glasses. The glasses were prescribed "to help him read and be able to see the computer better".
When we got back home, he got on the computer to play a game. In a few minutes he called me and said there was something wrong with his glasses.
I asked him what was the problem and he said, "I still can't read."
I was accompanying my eight-year-old daughter who was selling cookies door-to-door for the Girl Scouts.
After visiting several homes, she commented on the different styles of doorbells: some buzzed, some rang, some warbled. We made a game of guessing what the next bell would sound like.
At the precise moment she touched the doorbell at one house, the church tower began to chime.She wheeled around with a look of amazement on her face.
"Now that's a doorbell!"
Determined to have one last, lazy day of fishing before summer's end, I purposely ignored the leaky faucet and the broken gate -- household projects that had awaited me all summer.
When my wife asked, "What are you going to do today?" I grinned and answered, "It starts with F and ends with ISH."
"Oh, good," she replied. "You're finally going to FinISH up those projects."
Q: What do you call a chiropractor for pets?
A: An animal cracker.
While hiking in the mountains
one day I came across a gorgeous gorge that I thought was an echo canyon.
I shouted "Hello there."
But the response sounded to me like "Hello where?"
I tried again.
"How do you do?"
A moment later the report came back sounding like, "How do I do what?"
Baffled and amused I decided to give it the ultimate test.
"You're not really an echo canyon, are you?"
The response from the big ditch confirmed my suspicions.
"Brilliant deduction, Einstein"
A frog telephones a psychic
hotline and is told,
"You are going to meet a beautiful young girl who will want to know everything about you."
"Great," says the frog, "Will I meet her at a party?"
"No," said the psychic, "Next year - in biology class."
What did one ocean say to the other ocean?
Nothing, they just waved.
A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's work. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was. The girl replied, 'I'm drawing God.'
The teacher paused and said, 'But no one knows what God looks like.'
Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied, 'They will in a minute.'
My husband volunteered to
strip the bricks from the exterior of my parents' house.
One morning he was out front chipping away when a man came by looking for my father.
"He's not here," hubby said.
The man thanked him, watched
him remove a few more bricks and said,
"I'll bet next time they'll leave the key for you."
Mom says we have two ears because we should listen twice as much as we talk.
I always thought it was so we could let things go in one ear and out the other!
When my brother-in-law
was on leave from the Navy, he brought home a heavily tattooed friend.
We all sat down to Sunday lunch and my four-year-old nephew couldn't take his eyes off the man's colorful arms. Curiosity finally got the better of him.
Politely, he asked the visitor, "Didn't your mother give you paper to write on?"
