Choose your project tote wisely.
Many tote bags feature velcro closures which can destroy any yarn that comes in contact with it. My idea of the perfect project tote has a snap or a zipper closure. Inside pockets are helpful also. If your tote doesn't have any pockets you can put your hook, scissors and other notions in a pencil bag to help keep everything organized.

RE: Promo Fil Yarn
Would you be able to tell me where you bought the Promo Fil Yarn? I started a blanket and I am short Three balls of the taupe. I originally purchased the yarn at Wal-Mart but they no longer sell it. I have tried the distributer in Quebec but they did not respond. I also have tried EBAY but they only have lt blue and white. Any information you have would be great. Thank you in advance.
Have a great day,
<< reply >>
I bought mine at Wal-Mart also... and didn't care too much for it once I read the label closely. I only bought red, white and blue. Are you close enough to check other Wal-Mart stores?
On the letter coasters, what do you do with the ends when changing colors? Do you cut the yarn each time you change colors? Then do you sew each end in at the end?
<< reply >>
I carry the unused color along, crocheting over it as I go,
and dropping it where I need to pick it up on the next row.
I am trying to understand what to do in these instructions. Miss next: dc, SC, ch-3 sp and SC. Do I miss all those stitches as it leaves a big gap? It says next Shell in next ch-3 sp. And then Miss next: SC, ch-3 sp, SC and dc. I am going crazy trying to get this right. If you could help me understand this I will be so grateful.
Thanks Linda Fairbairn
<< reply >>
I think you’re understanding that instruction correctly.
Many times you have to skip multiple stitches in order
to allow a shell to lay flat.
Is this pattern online?

I happened upon your pattern while searching the internet. The purpose that I would make this pattern would be for our church to sell at our annual fall festival held each year in the fall. We use the proceeds made from items made or donated to feed the homeless. In general it is used to help anyone in the community that needs help. I would like your ok for this purpose only.
<< reply >>
You may use this pattern for charity or profit.
Thanks for asking.
NOTE: I allow my patterns to be used
to make items
to sell or give as a gift or to help a charity. Keep in
mind that not all designs on the CNM website are mine...
some of our crochet friends have contributed their
designs also. I ask that my patterns not be sold or reposted
to other sites and when possible include the
with items made.

"Hi, I printed out the pattern for Giget's Dog Santa Sweater and Hat crochet pattern but the sweater pattern itself is not listed. The pattern starts with adding the bobble on the beginning chain st and then the hat pattern. Would love to make this for my little Daphne, could you help?
<< Crochetnmore's reply >>
There's a note above the picture on the pattern page that links to this page: http://www.crochetnmore.com/dogsweater.htm
which is the original sweater pattern.
The instructions for Giget's Dog Santa Sweater and Hat are embellishments
to my original pattern. Enjoy!

Re: Feedback 103011 (Re: question- acrlyic melts over 500 degrees)
Thank you for your assistance.
I will look at all the links you had provided.
Like to keep in touch now and then.
I am the craft coordinator for a local volunteer organization that supports women that have lost babies due to miscarriage, stillbirth, or within the first year of life. We like to give gift baskets with small items that may give comfort to each woman. I tried out the Easter Cross pattern that Bonnie DeCamp created and would like to know if I may make them to give away in our gift baskets. We would never sell them. I just wanted to check if we are able to do that since it states it is only for personal use.
Thanks for your time.
<< reply >>
I apologize for such a delayed reply.
I receive so many emails it’s difficult to answer them all in
a timely manner.
You may use any of my designs in the future to make items
to give or to sell for profit. All I ask is my patterns not be reposted
or sold and when possible include the url to my site with the products.
Bonnie’s bookmark isn’t one of my designs, therefore, I cannot give permission
for you to use hers or any other contributing designer’s patterns.
Each pattern page will say who the designer is and I try to include
links to email the designer. Sadly, I’ve lost contact with Bonnie over the years
and no longer have her contact email.
words can be short and easy to speak,
but their echoes are truly endless.

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. NOTE: 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.

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.

Snow was falling heavily the day I decided to visit a car
dealership. I was confident I'd get a great deal, figuring
the salesmen would be desperate for customers on such a
lousy day. Sure enough, when I entered the showroom, I was
the only client.
But my hope of getting a good deal quickly faded with the
salesman's first words. "Boy," he said jovially, "you must
want a new car real bad to come out on a day like this."
I have two labrador retrievers & I was buying a large bag of Purina at Wal-Mart and was in line to check out. A woman behind me asked if I had a dog. On impulse, I told her that no, I was starting The Purina Diet again, although I probably shouldn't because I'd ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care unit with tubes coming out of me all over the place and IVs in both arms.
I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry & that the food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again.
I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was by now enthralled with my story, particularly a guy who was behind her. Horrified, she asked if I'd ended up in the hospital in that condition because I had been poisoned. I told her no; it was because I'd been barking in the street and a car hit me.
I thought one guy was going to have a heart attack, he was laughing so hard as he staggered out the door.
While in college I took a telephone-solicitation job in the
evenings, starting at six o'clock. On my very first call, I reached a
woman who said she was busy, but would call me back later. "I'm
so sorry," I said, "but we're not allowed to take incoming calls."
"Don't worry, dear," she replied. "Just give me your home
phone number and the time you have dinner."
There are people who have green thumbs. And then there's
me, Ms. Black Thumb.
I didn't think anyone else noticed until the day my sister visited. "I found this in the yard," she said, handing me a potted plant as she came in the door. "I think the wind blew it off your deck."
"It wasn't the wind," my husband joked. "It jumped."
"I need a raise," the man said to his boss. "There are three
other companies after me."
"Is that so?" asked the manager. "What other companies are
"The electric company, the telephone company, and the gas
A sign posted on the wall of an Army mess read,
"Don't Waste Food -- Food will win the war."
Beneath someone had written, "That's fine,
but how do we get the enemy to eat it?"
It was 6 p.m., and I was about to leave the coin laundry where I was employed. My boss called me over and asked if I would mind dropping off someone's laundry on my way home. "It's for my cousin," she apologized, "who's eight months pregnant and can't get out much anymore."
I cheerfully agreed and, driving to the address, knocked at the door. A little girl, the sister-to-be, answered.
"Hi, there," I said with a big smile. "Is your mommy home?" Holding up the white bundle of clothes, I explained, "I have a delivery for her."
The child's mouth dropped, and her eyes went wide. "Mom!" She shrieked,
"come quick! It's the stork!"
After searching high and low for a Christmas tree, my
husband Norm and I finally found one we liked.
That was when I spotted a woman nearby, holding up and
inspecting the "perfect" tree. How could we have missed
it? Even as we gathered up our tree and began making our
way to the checkout stand, I kept an eye on the other
woman, and watched as she carried it around the lot.
Suddenly, she set it aside and started looking at other
trees, clearly no longer interested in that one.
I couldn't believe my eyes!
I ditched ours and quickly ran over to grab the coveted tree.
As we made our way back to the checkout stand, I said to Norm,
"That was a stroke of luck. I can't believe she didn't want
this tree. It's perfect!"
"Not to her," Norm replied. "She just ran over and snatched
up the one we had."
It was Christmas and the judge was in a merry mood as he asked
the prisoner,"What are you charged with?"
"Doing my Christmas shopping early," replied the defendant.
"That's no offense," said the judge. "How early were you doing
"Before the store opened."
My son, a West Virginia state trooper, stopped a woman for going 15 miles over the speed limit. After he handed her a ticket, she asked him, "Don't you give out warnings?"
"Yes, ma'am," he replied. "They're all up and down the road.
They say, 'Speed Limit 55.'"
A lady on a commuter train was reading a newspaper article
about life and death statistics. Fascinated, she turned to
the man next to her and said, "Did you know that every time
I breathe somebody dies?"
"Really!?" he said. "Have you tried mouthwash?"
Annie told her young son Mike, to go to bed
and be sure to say his prayers and ask God
to make him a good boy.
The boy's father, passing by the bedroom,
overheard his son praying: "And make me a
good boy if You can; and if You can't, don't worry about it.....
'cause I'm having fun the way I am."
