“The story of grace is the Gospel of not just forgiveness, but also of redemption. God uses the weak, the ones who have failed and the ones who had run out of second chances long ago.”
~~ Kristen McNulty ~~


"People will forget what you said, people will forget
what you did, but people will never forget how you
made them feel.”

But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed; for the demonstration, I say, of His rightoeusness at the present time, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

ROMANS 3:21-26


For as many as are the works of the Law are under a curse; for it is written, "CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO DOES NOT ABIDE BY ALL THINGS WIRTTEN IN THE BOOK OF THE LAW, TO PERFORM THEM." Now that no one is justified by the Law before God is evident; for, "THE RIGHTEOUS MAN SHALL LIVE BY FAITH." However, the Law is not of faith; on the contrary, "HE WHO PRACTICES THEM SHALL LIVE BY THEM." Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us -- for it is written, "CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO HANGS ON A TREE" -- in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

Galatians 3:10-14


Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace, which He lavished upon us. In all wisdom and insight He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him with the view to an administration suitable to the fulness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things upon the earth. In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ should be to the praise of His glory. In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation -- having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a peldge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God's own possession, to the praise of His glory.

Ephesians 1:3-14

And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. And be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.

Ephesians 4:30-32

And this is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.

1 John 5:14-15

Re: Cable Headband - (CROCHET N MORE NEWSLETTER Vol. XVIII, Issue 6)

I have a question about pattern received in Nov. 2014.--so cute.
It is the cable headband. Can't figure out how to do the part where instruction says to work in front of the last 3 trs, Tr in ea sk st.
It is one of your free patterns I downloaded and printed.

For Row 2, make 3 chains and turn. Work one double crochet in the next stitch.
Skip the next 3 stitches.
Work one treble in each of the next 3 stitches.
Now you are going to back up and work into the three skipped stitches.
While doing this you will work in front of the three stitches you already made... not over or around them.
Double crochet in each of the last 2 stitches to finish the row.


Re: ReadAPattern

Can someone please help me? What does this mean in a crochet pattern?

(ch (12,12,12,10,10,10,8,8,8,) sk 7 sts, 1 sc into next st) x (45,47,49,51,53,55,57,59,61) and also

1 dbl crochet into next (5,5,5,4,4,4,3,3,3) chs, ch 3

I would appreciate any understanding you can give me as I am a regular customer.

Sincerely, Brenda Downes

Some crochet patterns include instructions on how to make more than one size.
When a series of numbers are enclosed in parentheses after an instruction, those numbers tell you what to do for each size listed.
In this instance, for the first size you make 12 chains
then skip 7 stitches
then work 1 single crochet in the next stitch.

I believe the part that says
"x (45,47,49,51,53,55,57,59,61)"
is a reference to how many times you do what is in the previous set of parentheses.

The same rule is true for the subsequent instruction... work 1 double crochet into each of the next 5 chains for each of the first 3 sizes, then chain 3.


HELP! I am crocheting a Knights Helmet as a favor for a favorite person to give to her son. She does this on occasion because she does not crochet. Here is my issue:

Round 3: *1hdc, work 2 hdc in next*, repeat from*\30 st in row
Round 4 *2 hdc, hdc 2*, repeat from *\40 st in row

I perfectly understand Round 3, but I am clueless on Round 4...exactly WHERE do these hdc's ngo?

Profound thanks and never ending gratitude,

Lea Shato

While I cannot be sure, it sounds like the designer wants you to work 2 half double crochet stitches in the next stitch... then one half double crochet in each of the next two stitches... then repeat that around. You should have a total of 40 stitches when you finish.



Hi Lisa
I was wondering if you could show how to do a "1tr in next tr ". It's probably not hard but I'm new to reading crochet patterns.

This video:



shows how to make a treble crochet into a foundation chain.
The stitch is worked the same way when made into a chain or into an actual crochet stitch like a treble.

Re: Row_Count_Paw_Print_Afghan_Square


I'm loving this square and am trying to make it into a dishcloth.

I was wondering how you fasten the alternate wool. The picture doesnt show it at the front - but is there some at the back??
Not sure what to do with the extra tail every time I change color.

Please help as I want to make these.




<< Reply >>

I carry the unused color along as I go, dropping it at the point where I will need it on the way back for the next row.

Subject: crochet scarf

Hi! I just found your web site, and I really do like it! My sister sent me an email with a scarf pattern from Nov. 2013. It is listed under “Christmas scarves” and I think it is a free pattern. I have looked and looked and cannot find it. I want the pattern so I can make one for her as a surprise. It is not an elaborate scarf, is made of lavender yarn with a green border and has a fastener on it that consists of a lavender flower with a button in the middle of the flower. Can you help me find this pattern, please? I would love to have it, even if it is not a free pattern. (it’s kind of a “skinny” scarf!) I appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you very much. My name is Vivian Kramer

I believe this is the scarf to which you are referring:

This book is a wonderful addition to any crochet library.
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.

As a new grandmother, I am very protective of my
daughter Meredith's baby girl.
One cool afternoon I dropped by to see my grandchild.
Meredith and a friend had taken little Allison for a
walk in her stroller and were just coming up the street.

As soon as they reached me, I bent down to admire Allison
and, in my fussiest voice, remarked, "Your little head is
cold. You should have a hat on."

My daughter looked knowingly at her friend and said, "You
owe me ten bucks."


I just came off of jury duty. None of us was thrilled to
spend hours and hours waiting around in a boring waiting
room to see if we'd get selected. There was a rather smug
college professor who REALLY didn't want to be there. When
the judge was asking questions of the prospective jurors,
concerning our abilities to judge fairly among the witnesses
on both sides, the college professor said, "I don't believe
in the justice system of this state, and I should be

I guess he thought he'd be sent home.

The judge was not impressed, to say the least, and said, "I
find you in contempt of this court. I sentence you to spend
one week in this courtroom. You will serve your sentence
between the hours of 9:00 am and 4:30 pm and may go to have
your lunch as the court stipulates from day to day. I think
your opinion of our justice system will change. If you fail
to carry out your sentence, you will spend one week in jail.
You may now sit down, professor."

The rest of us were tempted to applaud, but thought better
of it.


I was visiting my son and daughter-in-law last night and I asked if I could borrow a newspaper.

"This is the 21st century, old man," he said. "We don't waste money on newspapers. Here, you can borrow my iPhone."

I can tell you, that fly never knew what hit it!


"I've just had the most awful time," said a boy to his friends.
"First I got angina pectoris, then arteriosclerosis. Just as I was recovering,
I got psoriasis. They gave me hypodermics, and to top it all, tonsillitis
was followed by appendectomy."

"Wow! How did you pull through?" sympathized his friends.

"I don't know," the boy replied. "Toughest spelling test I ever had."


Three nature lovers went for a drive into the mountains
one day to see if they could spot some bears.
They wanted to take pictures of bears for their photo album.
So they drove along an old dirt road until they entered the trees.
As they rounded a curve, they spotted a sign that read, "BEAR LEFT."

So they turned around and went home.


A Sunday school teacher decided to have her young class memorize one of the most quoted passages in the Bible - Psalm 23. She gave the youngsters a month to learn the chapter.

Little Rick was excited about the task - but he just couldn't remember the Psalm. After much practice, he could barely get past the first line.

On the day that the kids were scheduled to recite Psalm 23 in front of the congregation, Ricky was so nervous. When it was his turn, he stepped up to the microphone and said proudly, "The Lord is my shepherd, and that's all I need to know."


I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage area.
So I went to the lost luggage office and told the woman
there that my bags never showed up.

She smiled and told me not to worry as they were trained
professionals and I was in good hands. "Now," she asked
me, "has your plane arrived yet?"


Eight and a half months very pregnant with twins, I was used to
getting nervous glances from strangers. But I never realized how
imposing I was until my husband and I went out to dinner at a
new restaurant.

The hostess sat us at our table, took one long look at my stomach
and asked, "Would you like me to get you a high chair just in case?"


In morning service at our church, the pastor asked the
congregation if anyone had something to thank God for.

An elderly gentleman rose to his feet and said, "I want
to thank God for my new hearing aid. Now I can hear you."
He paused before adding with a smile, "When I want to."


Betty was soon to be married.

More than anything, she wanted to wear the wedding
dress her mother was married in. Betty's mother was
beaming with pride as she gave her consent.

Later in the evening, the family gathered in the
living room to wait while Betty tried on the dress.

When Betty entered the room, there was a chorus
of approval. The dress fit perfectly and looked
wonderful on her.

Tears ran down the face of Betty's mother.

Seeing this, Betty said, "Don't worry Mom, you're
not losing a daughter, your gaining a son."

"Forget about that!" she said with a sob.
"I used to fit into that dress!"

During a case in municipal court in Middletown,
Ohio, a lawyer asked the judge to be excused from
representing his client.

The judge scanned the courtroom, looking for a
suitable replacement. But before he could find
one, the defendant stood up and said, "That's
all right, Judge. I won't be needing another
lawyer. I've decided to tell the truth."


A young and foolish pilot wanted to sound cool on the aviation frequencies.
This was his first time approaching a field during the nighttime, and instead of making any official requests to the tower, he said, "Guess who?"

The controller switched the field lights off and replied, "Guess where!"
