Crochet TIPS 2002

Cover a piece of heavy cardboard with checkered fabric to use for blocking crocheted pieces. Pins stick easily in the cardboard, and the checks give an accurate guideline.

Check the following page for some sizes of household textiles and some clothing:
Use the measurements with your favorite pattern design!

To be sure you finish a motif afghan before your deadline make a motif and keep track of the time it takes. Now set aside the time needed each day to complete the motifs. Don't forget to allow extra time for joining them :o)

Some people like to wind their yarn into a ball before use. You may want to unravel a project that wasn't going as planned and reuse that yarn. Be careful not to stretch the yarn too tightly when you wind it into the ball. Stretching the yarn tends to make it thinner which will cause a future project made with the yarn to have thinner stitches.

Use Nail Clippers instead of scissors to cut your yarn, especially if you have a small child around. You can thread a piece of yarn through the hole in the clippers and hang them around your neck. I keep a pair in my crochet hook case for times I can't seem to locate my scissors :o)


I put my cone of crochet cotton over the 4 wheel drive gear shift in my truck...
this keeps the cone from rolling all over the truck while I work and allows the yarn to come off the skein easily. I don't recommend putting the cone over the regular gear shift though as you could accidentally put the truck in gear.


Use tip protectors on steel hooks to keep the hook from being damaged.


I have some very old doilies from my great, great, grandmother. They are so old that I have been afraid to clean them. I would like to clean and frame them. I know that they clean them in museums, do you know how?


Dear Demara:

The following page offers tips on cleaning vintage lace doilies:

Until I read this article I would never have thought of using vinegar as a whitener.

Personally... I've always relied on Dawn dish liquid and luke warm water to clean my thread crochet items.
I don't think a mild soap would harm the doilies unless they are coming apart or dry-rotted.
