HUMP OF THE CHAIN
First of all I would like to say that I love your site. You make some very beautiful things.
I do have a question though if you don't mind. I am not familiar with one of the terms you mention. What does it mean when you say:
single crochet (or whatever stitch) in the "hump" of the chain
What is the hump? Do you mean through the back loop only or what? I am sorry, I just don't understand.
Thank you very much for taking the time to answer me.
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. Hence, the "hump" of the chain.

I have a bookshelf that has glass sliding doors. I use it to store some of my frequently used yarns. The colors are visible and it makes choosing yarn for my next project a lot easier as well as keeping the yarn free of dust.

RE: Bridal Hankie Pattern
I've received several inquiries regarding our Bridal Hankie pattern.
The entire pattern is ALL crochet... not an edging added onto an existing hankie.
Re: Bridal Hankie
Thank you for a beautiful pattern. Can't wait to try it.
Re: Bridal Hankie
How do you attach lace to hanky and
what size hanky?
Re: Bridal Hankie
Love the hankie pattern but, how do you get it on the hankie? My Mom used to crochet hankies all the time and she began with a steel hook and croched the stitches right on to the hankie. Carol
Re: Bridal Hankie
hi, thanks for the free pattern, it is beautiful. i would like to know how is the crochet edging attached to the hankie? what is the best kind of hankie material? i bought some inexpensive hankies and they feel hard. they haven't been washed yet though.
Re: Bridal Hankie
Hello..I just printed the bridal Hankie pattern...It does not say if you sew the edging on after you make it or if you sc around the edge of the handkerchief itself...I am assuming that you sc around the edge of the handkerchief as I do on my other edgings. Am I correct??? thanks, Miranda Lynam
row 1: Ch 51, Sc in 2nd ch from hk and in each ch across. Ch 1, turn. or do you want me to ch 51 and then attach to the hankie? sorry
does this mean you want me to crochet all around the hankie 51 scs?
Thanks B Daniels

I am a six-year breast cancer survivor and would love to make these coasters! They are very cute!!
Please answer a couple of questions –
I am not a novice, but usually only make things “straight” or easy.
In looking at your pattern, it looks like you carry the Mc or Cc along in easy row until needed, yes?
So do you recommend bobbins?
Do you ‘back’ them with anything – felt or cork? (not that I would know how – just want to know you would do this)
<< reply >>
Congratulations on being a Survivor. My Mother is also.
For the coaster pattern...
I carry the unused color along and drop it where I will need to
pick it back up on the way back for the next row.
I don’t put any backing on my coasters.
The coasters work well without any backing but you could add
a backing if you want to.

What's the youngest you've ever taught someone to crochet, or seen someone crochet? My 7 yr old daughter wants me to teach her and I think I'll start her off with a dishcloth; I want her to succeed.
<< my reply >>
I taught my daughter to crochet when she was four years old. Of course, she only knew a few stitches and obviously didn't follow patterns since she didn't know how to read very well yet. She was very good at what is known as "free form crochet". She just made stitches randomly where she felt they looked best and had me help her change colors when she wanted to. (I still have the first piece she made) She went on to ask more about how to make actual patterns. I showed her how to make a coaster and she went on from there making shapes and forming the shapes into clothes for her stuffed animals. At age five I taught her to knit. She still loves both but crocheting is easier for her.

My grandmother taught me embroidery at a young age.
Wish us luck, I'll never say no to a child wanting to learn.
<< my reply >>
I learned to crochet mostly by myself. I didn't have anyone in my family available to teach me when I took interest. I know your daughter will do great.... so Good Luck! I know you will look back on this as one of your fondest memories... I sure do.

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.
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.
I have to tell you about this new book.
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 crochet patterns.
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.

This guy walks into a coffee shop and asks the waitress:
"How much is the coffee?"
"Coffee is three dollars the waitress said".
"How much is a refill?" the man asked.
"Free"! said the waitress.
"Then I'll take a refill."
The new librarian decided that instead of checking out children's books by writing the names of borrowers on the book cards herself, she would have the youngsters sign their own names. She would then tell them they were signing a "contract" for returning the books on time.
Her first customer was a 2nd grader, who looked surprised to see a new librarian. He brought four books to the desk and shoved them across to the librarian, giving her his name as was the custom.
The new librarian pushed the books back, smiled, and told him to sign them out. The boy carefully printed his name on each book card and then handed them to her with a look of utter disgust. Before the new librarian could even start her speech he said scornfully, "At least that other librarian we had could write."
Shortly after the birth of their second child, a husband
offered to take his wife shopping for a new dress.
He endured more than two hours of listening to her
complaints about which figure flaw each dress accentuated.
As she emerged from the dressing room, having tried on
the last selection, she asked for her husband's opinion.
By this time he had learned just the right things to say.
"It's perfect!" he exclaimed. "It makes your waist look
smaller, your legs look longer, and slenderizes your hips."
Just then another lady in the dressing room spoke out.
"If there is a dress here that will do that, I'll buy them all!"
Charley, a new retiree greeter at Walmart, just couldn't seem to get to work on time.
Every day he was 5, 10, 15 minutes late. But he was a good worker, really tidy, clean-shaven, sharp minded and a real credit to the company and obviously demonstrating their "Older Person Friendly" policies. One day the boss called him into the office for a talk. "Charley,
I have to tell you, I like your work ethic, you do a bang up job, but your being late so often is quite bothersome."
"Yes, I know boss, and I am working on it."
''Well good, you are a team player. That's what
I like to hear. It's odd though your coming in late.
I know you're retired from the Armed Forces.
What did they say if you came in late there?"
''They said, 'Good morning, General, can I get you coffee, sir?'''
A farmer asked his vet to come out to check on his favorite
bull who wasn't doing well at all. After checking the bull's vital
signs, the vet reached in his black bag and pulled out a rather
large pill. He forced open the bull's mouth and crammed the
pill down his gullet.
Suddenly the bull jumped up and took off like a banshee,
jumping every fence in his way.
The vet exclaimed, "Well, looks like your bull is healed!"
The farmer replied, "Right, now give ME one of those pills.
I've gotta catch him!"
Mary offered to care for the eight-year-old daughter of
neighbours who were going away for the weekend. On the
Saturday morning, she made breakfast, laying a generous
helping of bacon and eggs in front of the child.
"Mummy always serves hot pancakes for breakfast," said
So Mary, very eager to oblige, hurried into the kitchen
and quickly prepared a plate of hot pancakes, which she
laid in front of the girl.
"No, thank you," she said.
"But I thought you said your mother always has hot
pancakes for breakfast!" said Mary in surprise.
"She does," said the child. "But I don't eat them!"
The man approached the very beautiful woman in the large
supermarket and asked, "You know, I've lost my wife here in

A new know-it-all co-pilot wanted to sound cool
on the aviation frequencies. This was his first
time approaching a runway at night...
Instead of making any official requests to the
tower, he said: "Guess who?"
The controller switched the runway lights off
and replied: "Guess where!"
Just as she was celebrating her 80th birthday, our friend
received a jury-duty notice. She called to remind the people
at the clerk's office that she was exempt because of her
"You need to come in and fill out the exemption forms," they
"I've already done that," she replied. "I did it last year."
"You have to do it every year," she was told.

The homeowner was delighted with the way the painter had done all the work on his house.
"You did a great job." he said and handed the man a check. "Also, in order to thank you,
here's an extra $80 to take the missus out to dinner and a movie."
Later that night, the doorbell rang and it was the painter. Thinking the man had forgotten
something he asked, "What's the matter, did you forget something?"
"Nope." replied the painter. "I'm just here to take your missus out to dinner and a movie like
My favorite spot at our local zoo is the House of Night, where
nocturnal creatures crawl and fly about. One very bright day, I
stepped into the exhibit and was plunged into total darkness.
Almost immediately, a small hand grabbed mine.
"And who do you belong to?" I asked.
His answer came swiftly: "I'm yours till the lights come on."
My granddaughter came to spend a few weeks with me,
and I decided to teach her to sew.
After I had gone through a lengthy explanation of how to
thread the machine, she stepped back, put her hands on
her hips, and said in disbelief, "You mean you can do all
that, but you can't operate my Game Boy?"
