I'm still here.. working on a blanket instead of my wedding dress (I would never be able to finish something like that in time). I have to add updated pix of it in my ravelry account.

I've tried to read patterns and even follow YT tutorials.... just doesn't seem to happen for me. I make up my own stuff too.

But, don't you ever get frustrated if it was a project that you wanted to look like the picture,lol? I know it sounds childish but I did not think it would be so difficult to follow some directions.

Tons of patterns and videos

Check her out for patterns AND videos for each pattern. She explains everything step by step.

And don't feel bad about not being able to read patterns. I usually have to have my book of basic stitches open to be able to read a pattern and work it. I've had success doing patterns that only require one or two different stitches.

Me too! I love Teresa! Her vids are so helpful. I've learned the basic stitch from her and then i either follow a video step by step follow a pattern show the stitches she taught.

Okay since it's been cold down here in the Sunshine State I've been doing a few crochet projects.

I made a black and red cowl (not quite wide enough but it'll do for now).

I continued working on my "gotta-use-up-my-excess-wool" blanket.

And I got a request for a crocheted cap with a flower on it.. I was wearing mine at the local diner, and the lady who owns the place said she liked my hat. I told her I made it myself, and she immediately asked if I'd make her one and how much do I charge. I didn't give her a price, but I'll come back with a hat for her anyways. Smile

This is the first time that I have done socks. It needs a little work, but I like it. On to the next one.

I'm drooling at your hair in your avatar pic. Great growth! I've been away for a while because EVERYBODY has more hair, except for those who chopped.

Hello All,

I'm new to the community and I love to see that I'm not the only one who likes to crochet.

@momnwife did you freestyle that hat or do you have a pattern, please send the pattern or format to me....I Love it!

Any hat patterns that you guys have, I would love to see them. I haven't had time to crochet in a while, but for something like a hat I think I can do fairly quickly.

Theresa is the bomb she also has vids on You Tube. Her hat instructions are very easy. Her blog has the written instructions. Also try Ravelry. www.ravelry.com my username on there is Nikcoils

Free instructions and patterns

Thanks Nikcoils! I've never heard of Ravelry, but I'm signing up and I will take a look around. This might be the motivation to pick up a needle again dance
