Crochet & Knitting in the news

I am always amazed and inspired by the many ways crocheters and knitters use their art to make the world a better place. Occasionally I will post links to read about such people.

May your week be filled with opportunities to help others, and may you reap the joy of finding time to follow through.

  1. Hello, Margret.
    I got one of your patterns from a JO-Ann link, the Blue Lagoon throw. I am so interested in crocheting this, but I need help in one of the steps. It's on round 5, where I join the new color in a ch3 space, 3dc in next sc, and sc in the next ch3 space. I try to do this, but the point made in the previous round kind of gets in the way, and if I skip it and go directly to the next ch3 space, the point is dangling, I mean, not attached to the new stitches I'm making... What am I doing wrong?
    I hope you can help me. I have never seen such a beautiful afghan and I just really want to have it. Thank you. My email is vaguirrev@hotmail.com
