"The greatest gift we can give our children is to let them
know that there is a God who loves them and knows them by name." --Rebecca Hagelin
And they were bringing children to Him so that He might touch them; and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw this, He was indignant and said to them, "Permit the children to come to Me; do not hinder them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it at all." And He took them in His arms and began blessing them, laying His hands upon them.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your Father and Mother (which is the first commandment with a promise), that it may be well with you, and that you may live long on the earth. And, fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to retire late, to eat the bread of painful labors; for He gives to His beloved even in his sleep. Behold, children are a gift of the Lord; the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; they shall not be ashamed, when they speak with their enemies in the gate.
"STRONG FAITH IS OFTEN FOUND IN THE HEART OF A CHILD."
This quote is from Our Daily Bread - November, 2005 Issue.
"For where two or three have gathered together in My name, there I am in their midst." Matthew 18:20

RE: Shell Stitch
First of all I love your
web site I have learned so much from it.
I need to know if you could send me directions for making a shell stitch.
Thank you so much and keep up the great work.
A faithful reader

There are many variations
of the shell stitch... take a look at this page:
There are a few shell

However, Bev's Preemie Coverlet is my favorite shell pattern:
and you can make it any size you want.
RE: One Hand Crochet
Hello Lisa, I can't thank you enough for all the information. I placed an order for two of the items I also like the one that claps to the table I'm so excited. I can't wait to received my new goods. Thanks again, I will let you know how I made out with my new devices.
My God Bless you too. Cassandra
I wanted to let you know that I made the doggie sweater, but I also adapted it a little. (My Mom said I ought to make them to sell!) After it was finished I noticed that Sammi's chest was still exposed, so I joined the yarn to the part wrapping around the belly, right between the front legs, & crocheted a piece to go up between the legs & fasten to the neck. All it needed was a button. In his case I think I used about 8 hdc's, decreasing for the last 2 or 3 rows so there wasn't too much on either side of the button. I also made the collar wider b/c Sammi has such a long skinny neck, & I threaded yarn through the stiches in order to snug it to keep out the cold drafts. Thanks for your help, Frieda Thompson
RE: Crochet Idea
I was just visiting your webb site and wanted to share with you something I did. If you have teenagers, or pre-teens and are looking to do a room make-over for them, this may be something you may want to try. it's not a quick project but everyone seems to like it. Two years ago, I had found a popcorn garland pattern in an old magazine that I had picked up at a flea market. One day I was at the allergists office working on my popcorn garland. One of the women asked me what I was making and asked me if I would make some for her but she wanted orange, her favorite color. That evening I was talking about it at home, and my son to be step-son Jeremy, thought that was a wonderful idea, especially since orange is also his favorite color. He as orange popcorn garland with glow in the dark beads (instead of the "cranberries") hanging at his closet instead of having a closet door. My friend from the allergy office has orange popcorn garland with yellow beads hanging in her bedroom doorway in Hawaii. My other son to be step-son has orange popcorn garland with blue beads (colors of his favorite football team) and glow in the dark beads hanging from the window in his bedroom at our house instead of a curtain. Zachery said the glow in the dark beads look like stars when the room is dark. Jeremy was going through a "hippy bead" stage and wanted hippy beads hanging at his steps to his room. I was tired of making the popcorn garland, so I took your icicle ornament pattern and just made it longer and I didn't taper it like an icicle. I have to admit, by the time I was done making all those door/window "curtains", I was SICK of the color orange :-) but I do think they look neat! April
Hi Just wanted to thank you for the help in the dog pattern I have looked all over as I am a beginner this looks to be easy again thank you patricia oquendo
i was trying to make this and am confused.I hope you will help me out.I got to the part where you begin rounds--I did the blp only but i don't know which side to do after that.Thanks Tammy
<< reply >>
Work in the back loop only for 7 singles... then chain 3 and turn the piece so the remaining loops appear as back loops. Work 7 singles on that side... chain 3 more and join to the first single.
Hi I was at your web site and I clicked on your link and it said "If you want to learn how to crochet but don't know where to start check our our page on HOW TO CROCHET " just wanted to let you know if you don't already. You have a nice web site.Thank you. Dionne McLean

Thank you so much... I've corrected my typo. Funny how simple mistakes get by me sometimes. Feel free to visit CNM and or email me anytime.
What size child will the cape fit? Thank you, Mary
<< reply >>
Haley is almost 9 years old and wears a youth medium in a shirt. I can wear the cape also... and I wear a medium shirt. The cape comes almost down to my elbows when tied. I believe it would work for children and adults. To better illustrate the size I measured the cape and drew a graphic. See if this helps. Keep in mind that you can adjust the size easily.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!! I HAVE SEARCHED A LITTLE AND THIS IS SO WONDERFUL. I AM JUST BEGINNING AND THE BOOKS ARE SO EXPENSIVE AND MOST ARE NOT EASILY COMPREHENDABLE. THIS THIS SITE IS BOTH COMPREHENSIVE AND OH SO HELPFUL. I KNEW THERE WOULD BE SOMETHING GOOD ONLINE. I WAS TAUGHT A STITCH AT SCHOOL, WE ARE MAKING SCARVES AND HATS FOR THE HOMELESS AND MY FIRST ATTEMPT LOOKS PRETTY POOR BUT I AM GETTING BETTER THANK YOU AGAIN FOR BEING THERE
I have been crocheting since I was 7 years old and have always enjoyed making new things some from patterns and some that I just make up a pattern for as I go. I have went to the nearest stores to find new patterns for aphgans that I can make while I'm riding with my husband in his semi and they just don't have anything that looks very good to me as being fun to do. I am hoping to find everything I'm looking for right here. Thank You

IT WAS early morning and a lady had just opened her garage sale. A neighbor from down the road came running past on his morning jog and stopped to look at the wares. He spotted a beautiful grandfather clock with an unbelievable price of just $50. So he told his neighbor he’d buy it.
“Will you be returning with your pickup truck to take it home?” the lady asked. “Oh, no,” he replied. “I’m strong and live only three houses down. I’ll just carry it.” He squatted down and hoisted the heavy clock onto his back, then walked slowly toward his home.
Suddenly, a youngster on a skateboard came roaring from the opposite direction and collided with the man. Bang! Clang! Crack! The clock crashed to the ground. “Can’t you watch where you’re going?” the man yelled at the youngster. The youngster replied, “Can’t you wear a wristwatch like everyone else?”
A salesman was going door
to door trying to sell his wears.
As he walked up to the next house, he noticed a small boy sitting on the front steps.
"Is your mother home?" the salesman asked the small boy.
"Yeah, she's home," the boy said, scooting over to let him past.
The salesman rang the doorbell, got no response, knocked once, then again. Still no one came to the door.
Turning to the boy, the fellow said, "I thought you said your mother was home!?"
The kid replied, "She is; but this isn't where I live."
Thank you for holding.

Employed by the human-development center of a corporation in the Midwest, my friend trains employees in proper dress codes and etiquette.
One day as she was stepping onto the elevator, a man casually dressed in jeans and a golf shirt got on with her.
Thinking of her responsibilities, she scolded, "Dressed a little casually today, aren't we?"
The man replied, "That's one benefit of owning the company."
Smith goes to see his supervisor in the front office. "Boss," he says, "we're doing some heavy house-cleaning at home tomorrow, and my wife needs me to help with the attic and the garage, moving and hauling stuff."
"We're short-handed, Smith" the boss replies. "I can't give you the day off."
"Thanks, boss," says Smith "I knew I could count on you!"
THE great detective Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr. Watson were on a camping trip. As they bedded down for the night, Holmes said, “Watson, look up in the sky and tell me what you see.” Watson answered, “I see millions and millions of stars.”
“And what does that tell you?” Holmes continued. Watson answered, “Astronomically, it tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets…theologically, it tells me God is great, and that we are small and insignificant…meteorologically, it tells me tomorrow will be a beautiful day. What does it tell you, Holmes?"
"Someone stole our tent."
A flying saucer landed at a gas station on a lonely country road. The two space aliens inside seemed completely unconcerned about detection; in fact, the letters "UFO" were emblazoned in big, bold letters on one side of their shiny craft. As the station owner stood and gawked in silence, paralyzed with shock, his young, blonde attendant nonchalantly filled up the tank and waved to the two aliens as they took off.
"Do you realize what just happened?" the station owner finally uttered.
"Yeah," said the blonde
"Didn't you see the space aliens in that vehicle?!"
"Yeah," repeated the blonde. "So?"
"Didn't you see the letters 'UFO' on the side of that vehicle?!"
"Yeah," repeated the blonde attendant. "So?"
"Don't you know what 'UFO' means?!"
The blonde attendant rolled
"Good grief, boss! I've been working here for five years.
Of course I know what 'UFO' means - ....it means 'Unleaded Fuel Only!"
There once was a snail that wanted to buy a Nissan Z car.
So, he went to a dealership and bought a car. "But," he said to the salesperson, "I would like my car personalized. Would it be possible to have the "Z" replaced with an "S"?" The dealer said yes, and it was done.
And, as the snail raced around the city in his brand new car, everyone would see, "Wow, look at that S-car-go."
