About that 3-ring Binder....

I had previously shown a binder I put together to save new stitch samples: and now I’ve added into it to save Yarn Samples, with their labels. It’s proven more useful than I first expected, because I can compare color combinations right in...

Tool, Hook Storage

Here is my solution to storing my most used crochet items. I’ve used a simple leather wallet, eight inches long and 3-1/2" wide when snapped closed. I took a seam ripper to the stitching inside it, so it opened up two more pockets length-wise...

Martin Sojka ...

Welcome Barb! Glad to see you here :)

BarbS ...

Thanks Martin! Getting involved here may encourage me to do more needlework when I’m not busy elsewhere.

Hi, new here, can anyone tell me exactly how this group works? Do we share patterns, or not, or what are the “rules”? Thx for any help!

BarbS ...

Hi Susan. You are posting on my profile page, so I’ll answer you. Read your profile and it sounds like you’ve been a big-time crochet-er! I think many people here share patterns, and it’s a place to show off our work and ask questions of others. On the main title page you’ll see Active Forum Topics you can join in on. I believe it is a monitored site, but aims to be somewhat ‘self-policing’ in terms of keeping spam and trouble makers off the site, so just jump in and get involved!

Thanks for visiting my post and thanks for the kind words about my scarf and hat set!

Debbie Pribele ...

I can add an email to it if you’d like .. or change the name…

Oh! It’s Great… thank you, Ma’am, I thought I’d have to mock one up myself. Love it, Thanks! And just in time for all my Christmas presents. I’m frozen out of my unheated wood shop, so all my gifts are crocheted this year. And I have a Bunch!
Thanks so much, Ms. Debbie.

Hi hun, I know this is not crochet related but really enjoyed reading your interview and then going and exploring your page and wonderful wood working, I have dabbled a bit and with the passing of my Grandfather in Dec (he was 104) I just got back my pride and joy and wanted to share it with you

BarbS ...

Oh-h! That is just wonderful, an art in itself. Did you make it for him? You said you ‘dabbled,’ so I assume it is your own creation. What a great family keepsake. I’m Really glad you shared it. I hope you are still ‘dabbling’ in wood as well as yarn!
