CHAIN SPACE (Ch-1 sp; Ch-2 sp; etc)
Crochet patterns sometimes
refer to a chain space.. it can be chain 1 or any
number/series of chains. Ch-1 sp is the same as chain one space.
Ch-2 sp is the same as chain two space. etc.
Anytime a pattern calls for working into a chain space you work into the hole left beneath the chain(s)... not into the chain(s) themselves.
Example: If a pattern says "sc in next ch-1 sp" then you do a single crochet in the next chain one space (the next space where you previously chained one). Work the stitch into the hole below the chain... not directly into the chain itself.

Take a second to thread a yarn needle.
Sewing the ends into your project is a lot faster than using a crochet hook and it keeps the crochet fabric looking much nicer.

Subject: Christmas tree ornament
what is a hump? I normally single crochet into a chain, pushing the hook through 2 strands of a chain link. Is a hump just one strand of the chain link?
<< reply >>
Each chain has a top loop, a bottom loop (or front and back loop)
as well as a little hump on the back side.
When you crochet into the hump on the back side of a chain it makes
the edge of the first row look like the edge on the last row.
I am still not getting your newsletters like when i was through yahoo. I resigned up with my new email address and i have also added you in my address book. I really miss your newsletter and all the tips. Is there something else i need to do? Thank you for your time.

Amazon lists a nice bamboo tunisian hook on this page:
I ran across a pattern with the abbreviation rw what is that
<< reply >>
I believe the designer means “row”.
Would this make sense in your pattern?
Re: Barbs_Floppy_Brim_Hat - cotton
I just found your floppy brim hat pattern – it’s adorable.
My oldest friend in the world has just been diagnosed with cancer and has tasked me with making her some cotton hats for when she looses her hair. She likes the floppy brim hat I sent her for Christmas for her cold Denver winters.
She wants cotton...can you suggest how to make your hat with cotton thread? I’m not an expert and time is key.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions you may be able to offer,
Trish in Georgia

I’m not sure how the size of this hat would be affected
by changing to a cotton yarn. The hat pattern on this
page is made using cotton yarn:

Prayers for your friend!
I was very disappointed and disbelieving to see you have a prayer request site that charges money to pray! That is not the vision I had of Crochet & More at all! Cathy
<< reply >>
We do not charge money to list prayers for people. What made you think that?
<< Cathy's Reply >>
The site that I clicked on on the news letter requires money if you want to submit a request for prayer.
<< my reply >>
This is our prayer page:
All it takes to have a prayer listed is email it to me.
There are advertisements on all of our webpages.
Could it be you clicked on one of those?
The ads on our pages help pay for the Crochetnmore website but we do not personally choose which ads are listed. Google chooses the ads based on what is on the page and what the viewer
has searched for in the past.
<< Cathy's Reply >>
That is what I did. I was shocked to see that you had to pay to have a prayer request prayed for. Thanks for the information. I love your publication. Cathy \
<< My Reply >>
Thanks for letting me know Cathy.
Yes... that is sad that people would try to profit off of another person’s need for prayer.
I wish I could remove certain ads from the rotation myself but that’s not possible with that ad program. I plan on including your note in my next newsletter in hopes of informing others that we do not charge for prayer. Have a great week!

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.

A man rushed to the jewelry counter in the store where I work soon after the doors opened one morning and said he needed a pair of diamond earrings. I showed him a wide selection, and quickly he picked out a pair.
When I asked him if he wanted the earrings gift-
wrapped, he said, "That'd be great. But can you make it
quick? I forgot today was my anniversary, and my wife thinks
I'm taking out the trash."
Mrs. Brown, an English teacher, allowed her car roll through a
stop sign and was immediately pulled over by an alert young police
The officer was a former student who immediately recognized the errant driver. He couldn't resist saying: "Mrs. Brown, a stop sign is meant to be a period, not a comma!"
A carpenter was giving evidence about an accident he
had witnessed. The lawyer for the defendant was trying to
discredit him and asked him how far away he was from the
The carpenter replied, "Twenty-seven feet, six and one-half inches."
"What? How come you are so sure of that distance?" asked the lawyer.
"Well, I knew sooner or later somebody would ask me, so I measured it!"
A man traveling in southern Indiana was headed for the
Kentucky border...when he saw a large sign..."LAST CHANCE
FOR $3.79 GAS!"
He still had more than a quarter of a tank left, but figured he'd better take advantage of this opportunity to fill-up his tank at $3.79.
As he was getting his change from the attendant, he
asked, "How much is gas in Kentucky?"
The attendant replied, "$3.29."
We telemarketers know we're universally loathed. Still, some people are quite pleasant on the phone.
One day I called a number and asked to speak with Mr.
Morgan. The woman who answered explained that he no longer
lived at that address, but she did have a number where he
could be reached.
I thanked her, rang that number, and was greeted with, "Good morning, Highland View Cemetery."
There was a Christian lady who lived next door to an atheist. Everyday, when the lady prayed, the atheist guy could hear her. He thought to himself, "She sure is crazy, praying all the time like that. Doesn't she know there isn't a God? "Many times while she was praying, he would go to her house and harass her, saying "Lady, why do you pray all the time? Don't you know there is no God?" But she kept on praying. One day, she ran out of groceries. As usual, she was praying to the Lord explaining her situation and thanking Him for what He was gonna do.
AS USUAL, the atheist heard her praying and thought to himself. "Hmph . . .I'll fix her. "He went to the grocery store, bought a whole bunch of groceries, took them to her house, dropped them off on the front porch, rang the doorbell and then hid in the bushes to see what she would do. When she opened the door and saw the groceries, she began to praise the Lord with all her heart, jumping, singing and shouting' everywhere! The atheist then jumped out of the bushes and told her, "You ol' crazy lady, God didn't buy you those groceries, I bought those groceries! "Well, she broke out and started running down the street, shouting and praising the Lord.
When he finally caught her, he asked what her problem was . . . She said, "I knew the Lord would provide me with some groceries, but I didn't know he was gonna make the devil pay for them!
In the traffic court of a large Midwestern city, a young
lady was brought before the judge to answer for a ticket given
her for driving through a red light. She explained to his honor
that she was a school teacher and requested an immediate
disposal of her case so she could get to the school on time.
A wild gleam came into the judge's eyes. "You're a schoolteacher, eh?" he said. "Madam, I shall realize my lifelong ambition. I've waited years to have a schoolteacher in this court. Now sit down at that table and write 'I will not drive through red lights' 500 times!"
A customer moves away from a bank window, counts his change, and then goes back and says to the cashier, "Hey, you gave me the wrong change!"
"Sir, you stepped away from the counter," said the cashier. "We don't make corrections after you leave. There's nothing I can do about it now. That's the policy of this bank."
"Well, ok," answered the customer. "Just thought you'd
like to know that you gave me an extra twenty. Bye."
After my husband asked me to help him shed some
unwanted pounds, I stopped serving fattening TV snacks and
substituted crisp celery. While he was unenthusiastically munching
on a stalk one night, a commercial caught his attention. As he
watched longingly, a woman spread gooey chocolate frosting
over a freshly baked cake. When it was over, my husband turned to
me. "Did you ever notice," he asked, "that they never advertise
celery on TV?"
My son Ward owns a shiny green four-wheel-drive truck.
He also owns a 110-pound black Labrador named Tony. On
trips, the dog generally sits on a platform behind the driver's
seat, resting his huge head on Ward's shoulder as they travel
Ward did not give this cozy arrangement a second thought until the day he took Tony with him on a trip to Montana. While listening to his CB radio, Ward overheard one trucker remark to another, "See the little green four-wheeler you're about to pass? When you go by him, take a good look to see if that ain't a dog driving."
A man is waiting in line for a hit movie. Behind him are two
women. The usher comes along and says that he has two seats
together. Seeing the problem, the usher says to the man, "Let them
go first. You wouldn't want to separate a woman from her mother,
The man says, "No, sir. I did that once, and I've been sorry ever since."
The aspiring student psychiatrists from various colleges were attending their first class on emotional extremes. "Just to establish some parameters," said the professor, to the student from the University of Houston, "What is the opposite of joy?"
"Sadness," replied the student.
"And the opposite of depression?" the professor asked of the young lady from Rice.
"Elation," said she.
"And you sir," he said to the young man from Texas A&M. "How about the opposite of woe?"
The Aggie replied, "Sir, I believe that would be giddy- up."
