Moving my hook

and patiently waiting for another design idea. For the life of me I can understand how some people have  4 or 5 things going. I really struggle for ideas. When I do fetch one, getting it to the hook from my head is not so easy. 

The afghan is halfway completed, I think I'm on the 4th skein of yarn. I submitted a pattern I've been working on for over 1 year to a crochet magazine one month ago now, I suppose that by now I've not been chosen to be in the  next issue. I'm going to re work the pattern a bit, and then I'll sell the pattern on Ravelry and my Etsy shoppe. On my sample I used a # 3 weight Premier DK, and while it was not as thick and worsted #4, I felt it was still just to bulky.  

I don't want to make it out of thread, and so I'm searching around to see what else would work. Any ideas? Would be appreciated. I've been crocheting for years and years, but I don't have alot of experience in working with the yarns in between the thread and #4.

I reintroduced a new item to my Etsy shoppe, and will be adding some things over time. 

Any of you work with thread? 

This is out now, I picked mine up last week at the grocery store. If you do work with thread, remember all the great thread magazines that used to come out or by subscription.  Have a wonderful week, we'll talk again soon.

Until then, I'll keep tinkering...

  1. I hope your pattern does get selected by the magazine! I will check out your Etsy shop as well. I do love to use thread to crochet with over yarn.......I do not make a lot of afghans....I love doilies. But I do you cotton yarn for dish cloth crochet. Hope you can find an answer on the yarn for your afghan


It has been a sincere joy to have you visit.
