"It is good to be a Christian and know it,
but it is better to be a Christian and show it."


Let your character be free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, " I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU," so that we confidently say, "THE LORD IS MY HELPER, I WILL NOT BE AFRAID. WHAT SHALL MAN DO TO ME?"

Hebrews 13:5-6


But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law. Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing,and things like these, of which I forewarn you just as I have forewarned you that those who practice such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Galatians 5:16-21

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Matthew 5:44

I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

Philippians 4:13

Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ, and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were entreating through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

2 Corinthians 5:17-21

This file is very informative when learning to crochet:



Sometimes it's easier to keep your corresponding stitches aligned if you join them with stitch markers
before you actual begin your method of joining.


I never was any good at any of the 'pinch' methods of threading a needle with yarn, and out of frustration one day I made a loop out of a piece of sewing thread and put the loop through the eye of the needle, pushed the yarn in the loop, then pulled the loop and the yarn through the needle.

I now own a very nice medal needle threader, but I've taught many people my loop method because you can't lose it like you can lose a needle threader. I hope it helps someone.

Scrap Yarn Ideas ...

do you have number 64?

63. My grand daughter went to go do her latch-hook and her yarn wasn't in there, so I thot maybe she could use my scraps of yarn. So we sat there for bout an hour and cut all sorts of different colors for her, now she can do her things in colors she's picked out. ** Patty **

what does: sc in first 4sc, 2sc in next sc mean? Thank you for your time. gina

<< reply >>

>> sc in first 4sc, 2sc in next sc mean?
This means you work one single crochet stitch into each of the first four single crochet stitches.
Then work two single crochet stitches into the next single crochet stitch.

Re: crochet question

Hello! I my name is Lisa.
I saw your email address on a crochet website that said to feel free to ask questions.

Trying to tackle an intermediate pattern - - having a little trouble clarifying. the ch-2sp instructions and italics are throwing me. (I understand the different numbers in the brackets are for the different sizes you can make) - - but the ch-2 sp I'm having trouble understanding. And are words in italics at the end of a round just for clarification or do you actually do that stitch?

Here is a sample of the instructions. (as they are written)

Rnd. 1: (RS) -Beg at top, ch 3, join in first ch to form ring, ch 1, [sc in ring, ch 2] 8 [10, 10, 10, 12] times, join in beg sc. (8 [10, 10, 10, 10] sc, 8 [10, 10, 10, 10] ch-2 sps)

Rnd 2: Sl st in next ch-2 sp, beg half shell in space sp, (sc,ch 2,sc) in next ch-2 sp, half shell in next ch-2 sp, (sc, ch 2, sc) in next ch-2 sp, rep - - -etc.

I think if I can understand these first 2 rounds I can be on my way. I'm trying to make a hat - - - - Thanks again for any help/advice you can offer. Lisa

<< reply >>

None of the instructions came through in italics but see if this helps:

Rnd. 1: (RS) -Beg at top, ch 3, join in first ch to form ring, ch 1, [sc in ring, ch 2] 8 [10, 10, 10, 12] times,

Round 1 is the right side.
Beginning at the top, chain 3
now join with a slip stitch in the first chain you made to form a ring.
chain 1
(single crochet in the ring, chain 2) repeat this either 8, 10 or 12 times depending on the size you are making.

join in beg sc. (8 [10, 10, 10, 10] sc, 8 [10, 10, 10, 10] ch-2 sps)
join with a slip stitch in the first single crochet you made.
You should have 8 single crochets and 8 chain 2 spaces for the smallest size when finished... etc.

Rnd 2: Sl st in next ch-2 sp, beg half shell in space sp,
For Round 2
slip stitch in the next chain 2 space (work that slip stitch into the hole below the two chains)
work a beginning half shell in what I'm guessing is the same space... (instructions say "space sp")

(sc,ch 2,sc) in next ch-2 sp,
Work a single crochet, two chains and another single crochet all in the next chain 2 space (remember... this is in the hole below the two chains).

half shell in next ch-2 sp,
work a half shell in the next chain 2 space.

(sc, ch 2, sc) in next ch-2 sp, rep - - -etc.
Work a single crochet, two chains and another single crochet all in the next chain 2 space

Then do whatever it says to repeat to finish round 2.

Great site lots of patterns and some bible fun with the trivia God bless and Thanks so much...Di

Re: newsletter

realized that I had not gotten your newsletter in a loooooooooooooong time while talking to my sister last night about doggie sweaters to crochet and free patterns available on the Interwebs. So, went to your site and resubscribed. I'm catching up on the newsletters I've missed. I think my name somehow got deleted by mistake but I'm glad I'm back on the list. I might have remembered sooner but 2008 was not a good year... had some deaths and cancer surgeries in the family. Thanks for having the archives!

~~ Ruth

<< reply >>

Sometimes the database we use for the newsletter deletes subscribers. I'm not sure why. Anytime you miss an issue, feel free to re-subscribe. I'm glad the Newsletter Archive was helpful to you. Sorry that 2008 wasn't a good year for you. I pray that 2009 is better!

Re: Dog Sweater pattern

Thank you for a great and simple pattern. This my first crocheted dog sweater and I just love it for my Buster. I am sure he will love it to as we live in upstate NY and the temps are starting to drop. Regarding the pattern, I measured first as recommended and adjusted the waist (casted on 60 stitches) and followed the rest as written. I am not an experienced crocheter but it only took me 3 hours, which I thought was great as I don't like long projects. As you can tell I did a solid color and did two rows of a different color on Round 17 and 18. Thanks again. Shiree

RE: Puff_Stitch_Baby_Hat

Just dropping in to wish you a very Happy and Healthy New Year to you and your family. I just printed a copy of your puff stitch baby hat.......I had made one a couple of years ago with booties for a friend's daughter but misplaced the pattern. I am going to make some and donate them to a hospital in NYC for needy mom's baby's. A friend of mine runs a crochet club in the library and a bunch of us are making little baby hats for this hospital over in NY. I'm in NJ. Thank you for continuing your newsletter. Hope this finds you healthy......up here in north eastern NJ it is absolutely freezing cold. And I heard before it's going to get even colder as this week progresses. We have had much snow this year as opposed to past years. This morning it was only 14 degrees. How much colder can it get then that, right ? LOL. Take care, Wilda L.

<< reply >>

You're very welcome Wilda. Happy New Year to you also. I'm glad you are enjoying the Puff Stitch Baby Hat pattern. I also make hats... I usually knit mine... to donate to a hospital in Lexington, Kentucky. Our group is called the Noggineers. A hat is presented to every new mom who gives birth at Saint Joseph East Hospital.

It's been colder here also... we haven't had much snow at all but I expect we might get some soon. Extremely cold temperatures are on the way too... the low Friday is minus one... brrrrr!

Re: help

I don't know what this means,can you help me? CONTINUE AS FOLLOWS FOR THE REST OF THE MITTEN (all sts through both loops):
ROW 1 - With right side of work towards you, ch 1, 1 sc in the end of each row of ribbing, ch 1, turn. (27 sc, - this st count will be different on all rows if you are making smaller or larger mittens, example: if you added 2 more rows on the cuff for larger mittens, you will have more sc here - less if you are making smaller mittens.)
ROW 2 - *Over the next 6 sts, work 1 sc, 1 tr alternately. In next st increase by making 1 sc and 1 tr (note: these are made in the same st).* Repeat from * to * to the last 6 sts, work 1 sc, 1 tr alternately over these sts, ch 1, turn. (30 sc) (30 sc) Judy

<< reply >>

Try that in plain English:

Row 1:
With the right side of the cuff towards you... chain 1. Then work one single crochet in the end of each row of ribbing (if you added extra rows you will have more single crochet stitches). Chain 1 and turn. NOTE: If you made the pattern the indicated size you should have 27 single crochet stitches when finished because you work one single crochet stitch in the end of each of the 27 rows.

Row 2:
* Over the next six stitches.
Work one single crochet in the next stitch.
Work one treble crochet in the next stitch.
Work one single crochet in the next stitch.
Work one treble crochet in the next stitch.
Work one single crochet in the next stitch.
Work one treble crochet in the next stitch.

In the next stitch you increase (like this...)
Work one single crochet in that stitch... then work one treble crochet stitch in the same stitch

Now repeat all instructions from the asterisk around to the last six stitches.

Work one single crochet in the next stitch.
Work one treble crochet in the next stitch.
Work one single crochet in the next stitch.
Work one treble crochet in the next stitch.
Work one single crochet in the next stitch.
Work one treble crochet in the next stitch.
Chain 1 and turn.

If you are working the pattern in the indicated size you should have 30 stitches when this row is finished.
Hope this helps.


Re: help understand pattern

- Row 15 of skirt

Sl st 2 sps into space between 3dc,then ch 3,trin the center stitch of the 3 dc from row 14,dc in that space. *In the next space between 3dc,dc,tr in the center stitch of the 3dc from the previous row,dc.Repeat from*around,sl st tog.

<< reply >>

This pattern language sounds really confusing.

For this part:
Sl st 2 sps into space between 3dc,then ch 3,trin the center stitch of the 3 dc from row 14,dc in that space.

I believe the designer wants you to:
slip stitch in each stitch to get to you the space between the next two sets of double crochet stitches.
Chain 3
treble crochet in the center double crochet stitch of the next 3dc set
double crochet in the next space between 3dc sets

For this part:
*In the next space between 3dc,dc,tr in the center stitch of the 3dc from the previous row,dc.Repeat from*around,sl st tog.

I believe the designer means for you to work a double crochet in each space between 3dc sets and work a treble in the center stitch of each 3dc set. Then slip stitch to join. Hope this helps.

I really enjoyed this new issue!
Thank you!
Rachel Moe

Re: TheDogHouse

Hi, I would love to crochet a sweater for our beautiful Bren~a, but the problem is she is 85lbs and all the sweaters here are for little dogs. She is part Lab and Rott so she is a pretty big girl. Even the ones I see at the store are small. I would it if you could help me out. I love the one Duchess is wearing. Thank you for yourWeb sight, it's great. Jill

<< reply >>

I know what you mean about the sweaters being too small.
My daughter bought a jacket for our Miniature Schnauzer the other day... it said it was the size for that breed. Well our dog is 22 pounds and the sweater was too small. Guess I'll be crocheting him some sweaters too :o)

Try our Dog Sweater pattern on this page:
it's adjustable for any size breed.
You can embellish the sweater any way you want to.

RE: TheDogHouse

As you can see I added ruffles, Ginger is so prissy ruffles are a necessity.
The crochet pattern was EZ, I made the sweater in less than two hours. Thanks, Pam

RE: Reading Pattern

Fresno Throw:

Please see page 2 of the instructions. Joining motifs. I am baffled by the term: "fastening off". It was my impression that I complete the 80 motifs to "Round 5", but how can I if the instructions say "Do not fasten off". So far I have completed the 80 motifs to Round 4 as that is a "Fasten off" point. Can you clarify this? Thank you. Ann Scott

<< reply >>

You do fasten off all motifs after Round 4. Then you work Round 5 on that motif. From there you join the motifs as you go... never fastening off. Does that make sense?

God Bless you and your family with a very Happy, Healthy, Loving New Year. God Bless baby Will- he is beautiful. Thank you for sharing his picture.

I did it !!!
Attached is a photo of the small coin purse I was able to make for my little niece with your help.

Thanks again!

RE: No Sew Towel Topper

Hello! I just wanted to thank you for this pattern! Everyone of my relatives and friends received one with a Christmas towel for the holidays. I love this and I can knock out 2 or 3 per along with holiday yarns, the every day also keeps me busy. I have done a few tests here and there on needle and size changes..but all in all it is all yours. It's great! Thanks again, Marcia Wanish Pottstown, PA

RE: Baby Beanie

Could you please, please, please write me these instructions out in full as I am just starting out and do not understand. Please email the written out instructions to me at (email address omitted) thank you so very much from, Anna-rose Garratt.

<< reply >>

Plain English instructions are written in teal.

R1: Ch4. 11 dc in 4th ch from hook. Join with sl st in top of beg ch4. (12dc) Do not turn.

This means Chain 4, then work 11 double crochet stitches in the fourth chain from the hook. Now join with a slip stitch in the top of the beginning chain 4. (you should have 12 double crochet stitches because 3 of the beginning four chains counts as one double crochet). Do not turn.

R2: Sl st bet next 2 sts. Ch3, dc in same sp. 2dc bet all other sts. (24dc) Join with sl st in top of beg ch3. Do not turn.

This means you slip stitch between the next two stitches.
Chain 3, double crochet in the same space.
Work 2 double crochets between all other stitches.
You should have 24 double crochet stitches when that round is finished.
Join with a slip stitch in the top of the beginning chain 3.
Do not turn.

R3: Sl st bet next 2sts. Ch3, dc in same sp. Dc bet next 2 sts. (2dc bet next 2 sts. Dc bet next 2 sts) around. (36dc) Join with sl st in top of beg ch3. Do not turn.

This means that on R3 you slip stitch between the next two stitches.
Double crochet stitches look like little fence posts. Work between the two posts.
Now Chain 3 and work one double crochet in the same space.
Now work a double crochet between the next two stitches
(between the posts of the stitches.)
Work two double crochet stitches between the next two stitches (as before).
Double crochet between the next two stitches
Repeat the instructions between the parentheses around the entire round.
When finished you should have 36 doubles.
Join with a slip stitch in the top of the beginnig chain 3. Do not turn.

Rs4-12: Sl st bet next 2 sts. Ch3 (counts as dc for this space) (Dc bet next 2 sts) around. Join with sl st in top of beg ch3. (36dc) Do not turn.

For Rounds 4-12 you do the following:
Slip stitch between the next two stitches.
Chain 3 (counts as a double crochet stitch)
(Double crochet between the next two stitches)
all the way around. Join with a slip stitch in the top of the
beginning chain 3. You should have 36 double crochet stitches
when this round is finished. Do not turn.

R13: Rev sc around placing one st bet all sts like previous rounds.

For Round 13 you work a reverse single crochet stitch in between all of the stitches as in previous rounds. Join with a slip stitch and fasten off.

I have to tell you about this new book.'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 husband and wife went to breakfast at a restaurant where the "Seniors' Special" was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $1.99.

"Sounds good," the wife said. "But I don't want the eggs."

"Then I'll have to charge you $2.49 because you're ordering a la carte," the waitress warned her.

"You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?" the wife asked incredulously.

"YES!!" ----

"Then I'll take the special."

"How do you want your eggs?"

"Raw and in the shell," the wife replied.
And she took the two eggs home.

They've been around the block more than once!


You pull over to let a fire truck go by, and it stops behind you.

You have to go to a repair center every thousand miles to get the duct tape replaced.

You accidentally drive into a junkyard, drive out, and get accused of stealing.

The Blue Book lists your car under "Health Risk."

You return to your car and find someone broke in and left a hundred dollars and a new stereo.

Evel Kneivel refuses a free lift.

The valet puts on a crash helmet and full-body armour before parking your car.

The car is so rusted, that it's only the paint that is holding everything together.

The only reason you use the rear windscreen heater is to keep your hands warm while you push the car home.

The exhaust pipe is so full of holes that when you drive down the street it sounds like a piccolo.

It seems that a lawyer had a little bit too much to drink and on his way home rear-ended the car in front of him. The lawyer got out of his car, walked over to the driver of the other car and said,
"Boy, are you in trouble! I'm a lawyer!"

The driver looked out his window and said, "No, you're in trouble. I'm a judge."

Since I was processing my first accident report at the transport company where I worked, I was being particularly attentive. The driver had hit a deer on the highway and the result was a severely damaged hood and fender. My serious mood was broken, however, when I reached the section of the report that asked, "Speed of other vehicle?" The driver had put, "Full gallop."

Grandma Jones from the valley had never experienced a sick day in her life, so she didn't take it kindly when a bad case of the mulligrubs sent her to the hospital for observation. By the time a pair of husky interns got Grandma tucked into bed, she had managed to complain about everything: the temperature, the lights, the skimpy gown, the food and the mattress, especially, the mattress. Suddenly, Grandma spotted a small plastic item with a button, attached to a cord. "What's that?" she demanded.

"If you need anything in the middle of the night, Grandma," said one of the interns, "just press that button."

"What does it do, ring a bell?" she asked.

"No, it turns on a light in the hall for the nurse on duty," the intern replied.

"A light in the hall?" responded Grandma.
"Look, I'm the sick one around here.
If the night nurse needs a light on in the hall, she can get up and switch it on herself."

A new pastor was visiting in the homes of his parishioners. At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door. Therefore, he took out a business card and wrote "Revelation 3:20" on the back of it and stuck it in the door.When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found that his card had been returned. Added to it was this cryptic message, "Genesis 3:10."

Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter.
Revelation 3:20 begins
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock." Genesis 3:10 reads,
"I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid for I was naked."

The man approached the very beautiful woman in the large supermarket and asked, "You know, I've lost my wife here in the supermarket. Can you talk to me for a couple of minutes?"


"Because every time I talk to a beautiful woman my wife appears out of nowhere."

A new employee calls the Help Desk to complain that there's something wrong with her password.
No, it's not the usual caps-lock problem. "The problem is that whenever I type the password, it just shows stars," she says.

"Those asterisks are to protect you," the Help Desk technician explains,
"so if someone were standing behind you, they wouldn't be able to read your password."

"Yeah," she says, "but they show up even when there is no one standing behind me."

Recently, a young woman came into my father's insurance office with her newborn twins.
Dad asked her if she ever had any trouble telling them apart.
She gave him a funny look before responding, "No, I haven't had any problem.
This is Benjamin and this is Elizabeth."

Q: What does the word "benign" mean?'

A: Benign is what you will be after you be eight.

While my brother was stationed overseas, his wife wrote to him daily. For an added touch, she'd always scribble little abbreviated notes on the outside of the envelope.
