“A man's mind may be likened to a garden,
which may be intelligently cultivated
or allowed to run wild;
but whether cultivated or neglected,
it must, and will, bring forth.
If no useful seeds are put into it,
then an abundance of useless weed seeds
will fall therein, and will continue
to produce their kind.”

~~ James Allen, As a Man Thinketh. ~~

Oh give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name; make known His deeds among the peoples.

1 Chronicles 16:8

But let all who take refuge in Thee be glad, let them ever sing for joy; and mayest Thou shelter them. That those who love Thy name may exult in Thee. For it is Thou who dost bless the righteous man, O Lord. Thou dost surround him with favor as with a shield.

Psalm 5:11-12

Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. Who is the man who desires life, and loves length of days that he may see good? Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking deceit. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

Psalm 34:11-14

Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His name. For the Lord is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting, and His faithfulness to all generations.

Psalm 100:4-5

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; For His loveingkindess is everlasting. Give thanks to the God of gods, for His lovingkindness is everlasting. Give thanks to the Lord of lords, for His lovingkindness is everlasting.

Psalm 136:1-3

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Let your forbearing spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute. If there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things; and the God of peace shall be with you.

Philippians 4:4-9

"Therefore I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men, but blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven. And whoever shall speak a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever shall speak against the Holy Sprit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age, or in the age to come. Either make the tree good, and its fruit good; or make the tree bad, and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit.

Matthew 12:31-33


And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.

Colossians 3:17




According to 1 Corinthians, how should you run?

How to Crochet - Crochet into Unworked Loop of a Stitch

As a design element, some patterns have you work stitches into only one loop... leaving unworked loops to be used later on in the pattern.

Watch the video:












"On-line encyclopedia of knitting and crochet facts"





When alternating between two colors of yarn,
I always twist the yarns in the same direction.
When the yarns get twisted I let the
project dangle which helps untwist the yarns.

Re: ReadAPattern

hi, I would like to know how to do fptr front post treble, plus bptr back post treble, in double fillet? Thanks.

Pat Jenkins

<< Reply >>

Hi Pat:

Here's how you make a treble crochet, also known as a triple crochet:

Yarn over twice, then insert your hook into the stitch or space indicated.

Yarn over and pull up a loop. (4 loops on hook.)
Yarn over and draw through 2 loops. (3 loops on hook.)
Yarn over and draw through 2 loops. (2 loops on hook.)
Yarn over and draw through two loops.

Here’s a video demonstration:

Now, take a look at this video:

where I explain the placement of a front and back post stitch.

The placement of the stitch is the only difference in a regular treble crochet and a front post treble or a back post treble.


Re: Stitch_Question

Would the crochet cotton work as well as yarn on the casserole carrier?


<< Reply >>

Red Heart Super Saver yarn is comparable to 4 ply cotton yarn and should work fine for the casserole carrier.



Re: Table_Runner

Shouldn't R2 say DC in 3rd DC and DC in last 3 dc of row?

<< Reply >>

The pattern is written correctly.
You can find a video demonstration of the Table Runner crochet pattern here:



Hope you enjoy the pattern.



Re: ReadAPattern

What does Sc over next ch-5 loop in center dc of 9-dc fan mean

Grace Crouse

<< Reply >>

Hi Grace:

I believe the designer wants you to enclose the chain 5 loop in the single crochet.
In other words, make the single crochet in the center double crochet of the next 9 double crochet fan, while working over the chain 5 loop.

Hope this helps.



Re: ReadAPattern

yes. I am having trouble deciphering following direction: HELP, please. :

“ *dc 2, 2 dc in next dc* ; rep from* across to ...


<< Reply >>

Hi Elizabeth:

In order to explain correctly I would need to see the language for the entire row or round of the pattern.

Your partial instruction has you work a double crochet in the next two stitches, then 2 double crochets in the next double crochet.. then repeat from the asterisk. This instruction contains two asterisks and without the entire row language I can't be sure of the rest.

Hope this helps.


Re: Dishcloth

I thought your pattern was good, but the demonstration was a little too fast.

You need to slow it down a bit. At times you could not see where the hook was going to the stitch.

Thanks for your consideration.


<< Reply >>

Thank you so much for your comments.
I will keep this in mind for future demonstrations.
Hope you enjoyed the pattern.


Re: ReadAPattern

Hi.... my pattern says
(Rounds.Ch1 at the beginning of work and finishing the row)
Ch 11
R1 sc9, 3sc in one st, sc8, 2 sc in one st (22 sts )
This does not add up to me....can you help??


<< Reply >>

Your pattern has you chain 1 to begin a round and slip stitch to finish it.
You make 11 chains to begin.
Work a single crochet in the second chain from the hook (mark the chain this stitch is in).
Single crochet in the next 8 chains for a total of 9.
Work 3 single crochets in the very last chain.
Working up the opposite side of the foundation chain... single crochet in the next 8 chains.
Place 2 more single crochets in the marked chain.
Now slip stitch in the first single crochet you made.
There should be a total of 22 single crochet stitches worked all the way around the original 11 chains of the foundation chain.

The Incident - True story about how God works

This is about my Father In Law, James Hamblin.
We asked for and received prayer from many of our crochet family after his accident and during his recovery process. For those who do not know, James fell in October causing multiple injuries which took months to overcome. He is home now and doing well.

This is his story!

Mom and Dad were trying to console the little kid. "You know, it's not your fault that the dog died".

The little kid was having none of it.

Dad said, "You know, he's probably up in heaven right now with God."

The little kid paused a moment, and looking puzzled, said, "What would God want with a dead dog?"


2While working in the psychology department at Glen Oaks Community College in Centreville, MI, I was asked to

enlarge a chart for a meeting. I called the copy room and asked, "Can I get something blown up down there?"

After a pause the voice on the line replied, "I think you want the chemistry lab."


Miss Emily was everybody's favorite spinster. Every year, for her birthday, she received dozens of little gifts from friends and family. Year after year the knickknacks were added to, and soon filled every corner of the house.

On her hundredth birthday, her niece asked what she wanted this year.

Miss Emily said, "I'll take a kiss. Anything I don't have to dust!"


The teacher asked her students what they wanted to become when
they grew up. A chorus of responses came from all over the room:

"A football player."

"A doctor."

"An astronaut."

"The president."

"A fireman."

"A teacher."

"A race car driver."

Everyone that is, except Tommy.

The teacher noticed he was sitting there quiet and still.
So she asked him, "Tommy, what do you want to be when you
grow up?"

"Possible," Tommy replied.

"Possible?" asked the teacher.

"Yes," Tommy said. "My mom is always telling me I'm impossible.
So when I get to be big, I want to be possible."


A out-of-towner in New York at the height of the tourist season decided to revisit an uptown restaurant he'd enjoyed on a previous trip to the city.

Finally catching the eye of an overworked waiter, he said, "You know, it's been over five years since I first came in here."

"I'm sorry, but you'll have to wait your turn, sir," replied the waiter with typical New York charm. "I can only serve one table at a time."

I was a little surprised when my son suddenly announced one day after church, “I am thinking of being a Minister when I grow up.”

“Why is that?” I asked. “

Well, I figure I have to go to church on Sundays anyway, and I think it’ll be more fun to stand and yell then to just sit and listen.”


Father's Day was just around the corner. Mom brought her ten-year-old son, Tyler, into the department store and walked him over to the greeting cards section.

"How would you like to pick out a nice card for Dad for Father's Day?" she asked the boy.

"Sure!" he replied.

"OK. You stay here and pick out a nice card for Dad while I shop for a few things," the mother instructed.

The boy started looking through cards. About 5 minutes later the mother returned to the cards section. Her son had opened up and looked at practically every card in the section.

"Honey, what are you doing?" his mom asked. "Haven't you founda nice card for Dad yet?"

"Not yet," Tyler said.

"Aren't these cards nice?" the mother asked, picking up a few.

"They are," Tyler answered, "But I'm looking for one with money in it!"


After driving up and down several lanes, I finally found a parking spot at the shopping mall. I noticed another man driving very slowly in the same direction, and, since he was closer, I gave him the "Are you going to park there?" look.

His responding gestures were very confusing. First he shook his head.
Next he pointed at me, then at the parking space and then at himself, his watch and the mall. Finishing off, he frowned, raised his palms upward and shrugged. Once I parked, I walked over to the driver to make sure he didn't want the space.

"You must be single," he replied. "If you were married, you would've known that was the universal sign for 'Go ahead and take the spot. I'm waiting for my wife.'"

When he saw how astronomically high his latest phone bill was,the head of the house called a family meeting. "This is unacceptable," said the father. "You have to limit the use of the phone. I never use this phone, I always use the one at the office."

The mother said: "Same here, I hardly ever use the home phone, because I use my work phone."

The son said: "Me, too. I never use the home phone. I always use the company's mobile."

"So what is the problem?" asked the housekeeper. "We all use our work telephones."


An elderly woman and her little grandson, whose face was sprinkled with bright freckles, spent the day at the zoo. Lots of children were waiting in line to get their cheeks painted by a local artist who was decorating them with tiger paws.

"You've got so many freckles, there's no place to paint!" a girl in the line said to the little fella.

Embarrassed, the little boy dropped his head. His grandmother knelt down next to him. "I love your freckles. When I was a little girl I always wanted freckles," she said, while tracing her finger across the child's cheek. "Freckles are beautiful."

The boy looked up, "Really?" "Of course," said the grandmother. "Why just name me one thing that's prettier than freckles."

The little boy thought for a moment, peered intensely into his grandma's face, and softly whispered,”Wrinkles.”


On one particular Sunday, the pastor was emphasizing the importance of everyone giving their tithes and offerings. He went on to challenge the people to give enthusiastically because II Corinthians 9:7 says in it that "God loves a cheerful giver."

As the plate was passed a little boy in the second pew quickly slipped off his neck tie and placed it
Into the offering plate.

His mother, absolutely mortified, asked him what in the world he thought he was doing.

The boy replied, "The pastor said put your ties in the offering plate and do it joyfully. I love that man!"


Jim had an awful day fishing on the lake, sitting in the blazing sun all day without catching a single one. On his way home, he stopped at the supermarket and ordered four catfish. He told the fish salesman, "Pick four large ones out and throw them at me, will you?"

"Why do you want me to throw them at you?"

"Because I want to tell my wife that I caught them."

"Okay, but I suggest that you take the orange roughy."

"But why?"

"Because your wife came in earlier today and said that if you came by, I should tell you to take orange roughy. She prefers that for supper tonight."
