    I'm fairly new to crocheting. I've tried to pick it up several times but get bored to easily and give up. I can do some of the most common stitches (sc, dc, tc, ch, etc) and I can make granny squares. I made a few dishcloths too. I'm thinking if I could find something that is quick and easy to...

    So, when you're making things whatever it may be, how do you keep things square? I'm a beginner, and I can't seem to make things square. I want to make my DB a blanket, and one for a friend as a thank you, and I want them to look great, so they kinda need to be square (or rectangular) any...

    Hi! I want to crochet a pair of shorties (baby wears them over a cloth dipe) :-) I've found one free pattern online that you crochet in a circle and I've tried it a few times but everytime the chain gets twisted when I'm doing my slipstitch so that I can make it into the circle. Does anyone...

I also shared my email address with her so she could send me hers - I wanted to be able to email her cards and encouragement as well. Anyway, I got an email yesterday telling...

    is when you are working on a pattern (and watching TV at the same time) you don't realize that you forgot to do 2 rows, way back 32 rows ago! This is on an afghan that is worked along the length! :laugh: It doesn't hurt the pattern, so what would you do in this case? I ripped out 2 rows, and...
