Subject: Re: Two Color Afghan Square

Has anyone made the two color afghan square from this
this site? Does anyone have any more detail on
switching colors or maybe a video?


Hi Pat:

The most used method of changing colors is to work the very last stitch of the old color without completing the last step... yarn over with the new color and pull through to finish that stitch.

If the old color is fastened off before a new color is joined... the method used in this video is useful:

“Do not anticipate trouble,
or worry about what may never happen.
Keep in the sunlight.”

~~ Benjamin Franklin ~~

The Lord also will be a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble, and those who know Thy name will put their trust in Thee; For Thou, O Lord, hast not forsaken those who seek Thee.

Psalm 9:9-10


The troubles of my heart are enlarged; bring me out of my distresses. Look upon my affliction and my trouble, and forgive all my sins. Look upon my enemies, for they are many; and they hate me with violent hatred. Guard my soul and deliver me; do not let me be ashamed for I take refuge in Thee.

Psalm 25:17-20

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, and though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea; though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains quake at its swelling pride.

Psalm 46:1-3


Cast your burden upon the Lord, and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.

Psalm 55:22


He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, "My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!" For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper, and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark. You will not be afraid of the terror by night, or of the arrow that flies by day; of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, or of the destruction that lays waste at noon. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not approach you. You will only look on with your eyes, and see the recompense of the wicked. For you have made the Lord, my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place. No evil will befall you, nor will any plague come near your tent. For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways. They will bear you up in their hands. Lest you strike your foot against a stone. You will tread upon the lion and cobra, the young lion and the serpent you will trample down. Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name. He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him, and honor him. With a long life I will satisfy him, and let him behold My salvation.

Psalm 91


For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.

Romans 8:18

And in the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the spirit is, becuse He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Romans 8:26-28

I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

Philippians 4:13


And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19





Isaac and Rebekah had twin sons.
Which of the twins was hairy?

How to Crochet - Weaving Ends (and fastening off)

Once you complete your last stitch on a project you will have one loop on your hook.
Cut the yarn leaving about a 4-6" tail to be woven in.
Yarn over, draw the yarn tail completely through the loop, and pull it tight.
(That is called fastening off.)
This secures the yarn so the project doesn't unravel.
Now you need to weave in the yarn tail using a crochet hook or a yarn needle.
The yarn needle is quicker and you can weave the strand in without disturbing the stitches.

Here's how:

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!

"If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage sale and gave all my money to the church, would that get me into Heaven?" I asked the children in my Sunday School class.

"NO!" the children all answered.

"If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the yard, and kept everything neat and tidy, would that get
me into Heaven?"

Again, the answer was, "NO!"

"Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave candy to all the children, and loved my wife, would that get me into Heaven?" I asked them again.

Again, they all answered, "NO!"

"Well," I continued, "then how can I get into Heaven?"

A five-year-old boy shouted out, "YOU GOTTA BE DEAD!"


The sheriff of a small town was also the town's veterinarian.
One night the phone rang, and his wife answered. An agitated
voice inquired, "Is your husband there?"

"Do you require his services as a sheriff or as a vet?" the
wife asked. "Both!" was the reply.

"We can't get our dog's mouth open, and there's a burglar in

For months Bill had been Lynn's devoted admirer. Now, at long
last, he had collected up sufficient courage to ask her the
most momentous of all questions.

"There are quite a lot of advantages to being a bachelor," Bill
began, "but there comes a time when one longs for the companionship
of another being, a being who will regard one as perfect, as an
idol; whom one can treat as one's absolute own; who will be kind
and faithful when times are hard; who will share one's joys and

To his delight, Bill saw a sympathetic gleam in Lynn's eyes. Then
she nodded in agreement. Finally, Lynn responded, "I think it's
a great idea! Can I help you choose which puppy to buy?"


Little Johnny was fascinated as he watched his mother cold cream on her face.

"Mommy," he asked, "why do you put that stuff on your face?"

"To make myself beautiful," his mother replied as she began
removing the cream with a tissue.

"What's the matter?" asked Little Johnny. "Are you giving up?"

When my brother-in-law was on leave from national service,
he brought home a heavily tattooed friend. We all sat down
to Sunday lunch, and my four-year-old nephew couldn't take
his eyes off the man's colorful arms.

Curiosity finally got the better off him. Politely, he asked
the visitor, "Didn't your mother give you paper to write on?"


An old man gets up every morning, goes out in front of
his house, and sprinkles a white powder up and down the

One day, a neighbor who has watched his routine for many
years confronts him. “What is this powder you sprinkle
on the street every morning?”

“It's special elephant powder,” the old man said. “It
keeps the elephants away.”

“But,” says the neighbor. “Everybody knows that there
are no elephants in Nebraska.”

The old man just nodded, “I guess it must be working,


I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her

colors yet, so I decided to test her. I would point

out something and ask what color it was.

She would tell me, and she was always correct, but

it was fun for me, so I continued.

At last, she headed for the door, saying sagely,

"Grandma, I think you should try to figure out some

of these yourself!"


It was a disastrous year for the farmers. The snow fell
and fell until the government relief agency had to step
in and lend a hand.

"It must have been terrible," said the government man to
a farmer. "All that snow."

"Could have been worse," calmly answered the farmer. "My
neighbor had more snow than me."

"How's that?" asked the government man.

"More land," replied the farmer.


A fifth grader looked downcast, so her teacher decided to

"What's the problem, Carol? I hope it's not homework again."

"Well... yes, it is." replied Carol, reluctantly. "I was stupid
and made my homework paper into a paper airplane."

"Carol, you're right, that wasn't a very bright thing to do,"
said the teacher, "but this once I'll let you just unfold the
paper and hand it in."

"Oh, but that won't work," said Carol, looking even sadder.
"You see, the plane was hijacked."



A customer couldn't get on the internet.

Morris realized he needed to purchase a hearing aid, but he
felt unwilling to spend much money.

"How much do they cost?" he asked the salesperson.

"That depends," he said. "They run from $2.00 to $2,000."

"Let's see the $2.00 model," said Morris the miser.

The salesperson put the device around Morris' neck. "You just
stick this button in your ear and run this little string down
to your pocket," he instructed.

"How does it work?" asked Morris.

"For $2.00 it doesn't work," the salesperson replied. "But
when people see it on you, they'll talk louder!"


Hailey wants to open up a sort of "lemonade stand" on
our street, except that it will be selling "Happiness"
for 10 cents.

"What do they get for their 10 cents?"

"I get to throw a water balloon at them."

"And that will make them happy?"

"Maybe, maybe not. But it will make *me* happy! And I
get their money, hehe!"
