I'm having to set my knitting aside for a while as my hands are complaining about it. Having some repetitive motion issues and I don't want to complicate things.

I started crocheting again after years away. For my left over yarn, I'm making wheel chair blankets. These are always useful in nursing homes.

Happy to find this group. I love to crochet and although I used to be able to do the very basic knitting stitches, I think I've forgotten. Need a refresher course. I've spent the past couple of years crocheting prayer shawls, then moved on to using smaller left-over amounts of yarn to crochet chemo caps and preemie baby blankets. Just delivered some of those at our local hospital and cancer resource center. A friend just gave me another 2 boxes of yarn, need to sort it and decide what to make next...

Granny squares are great. I've never learned how to do them but my step mother made me a lovely throw for our double bed from them.

Sometimes it is not the tension, but the size of the hook or yarn. The finer the yarn, the smaller the granny square. Same for the hook. I usually use a 3 or 4 ply yarn and a #4 hook. When I was younger, I used a 4.5 hook for the same tension results. good luck

Sorry, I'm a knitter; but I know that it depends on the type of yarn and the size of the needle(hook). Good for you for trying it again!

Hallo I am new here! My mum taught me to crochet years ago and I am hoping to try again. I bight a kit for crouched granny squares to make an afghan for my daughter/ grand daughter. The one I tried making turned up tiny . How does one get the right tension?

So nice that so many people are interested in learning the crafts. My daughter and her friends are all learning. Means I spend a fair amount of time fixing problems, but they are learning so this is a good thing. More than happy to help and to teach them.

I would like to crochet them, but am not sure how to do a rib pattern. I am also not sure if anyone would wear them. I started a teddy bear crochet square today. Not bad. Still need to figure out how to read a pattern and then follow it. :)

I knit them and just make a long, wide rectangle and then sew the ends together. Nothing fancy with these latest, because the yarn was interesting; however, I've made a few cabled bands too.

I'm doing wide headbands (ear warmers) and baby socks with my remnants, depending on the type of yarn. I worked up a ruffly Sashay scarf for one of the granddaughters last night while watching our movie.

I haven't been here in a while. Glad to report that all the planned pjs were finished and wrapped by Christmas Eve! (whew!)

Been keeping the knitting needles going since then and have made some scarves, texting gloves (fingerless) and socks.

A little slow, in fact. Lots of interruptions this week. Only one set done and another cut out, but today I'm on a roll. I've got the boys' patterns out and their fabric ready, so I will hopefully get them cut today. That would be a big accomplishment.

I love homemade pj's. I haven't sewed in years, but I think it is a fantastic idea. I might have to dig out the sewing machine when the renovations on the house are done and I can find things. Thanks for the reminder.

My Mom and my Great Grandmom always wore those aprons too. Spmetimes when I make a mess I wonder why I don't!
Back to work on the prayer shawls. I went with some women from our church last week to deliver a car load of hats and scarves we made for the Seamens Institute for their Christmas at Sea program. Besides the prayer shawls and the Seamens Institute items some of our women embroider pillowcases for hospice patients. We have small group but they are good workers and great company.
Hope everyone is keeping warm. Have a great Thanksgiving!

Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered. No one was there.

I loved my grandmother's apron too, and wore it out. I wish now that I had made a pattern from it because I've never found one just like it.

I'm back to knitting socks. DIL2 has a birthday next week and I've turned her into a "sock snob", she says. At least I always know what to give her, right?

My cabled headbands went well at the fundraiser auction, but the aprons I made didn't get very high bids. People don't use aprons?

I wish you well. I hope you sell a bundle and make some extra $bucks for the holidays.
