Working in Rounds WITHOUT Stitch Markers

Untitled

I see a lot of patterns worked in the round (meaning you don’t join them after the end of row 1) but you just keep going, and they all call for stitch markers. Maybe it’s because I’m a pretty quick crocheter but I haven’t ever been able to get the hang of working with stitch markers, and to me, it takes more time having to get them out of the yarn, then having to place them in the next place. Maybe I don’t know how to work with them properly or something, I just don’t know! Anyways, I have always been asked how I work in the round withOUT using them, so I figured I would write a post on it!  Continue reading

Need my Crochet Mojo back!

I have been crocheting since 2010, and I’ve never gone as long as I have currently without picking up my crochet hook and yarn! It’s been since the end of February since I’ve crocheted anything at all! I’m not entirely sure what the deal is, but I need my mojo back! I’ve got 3 skeins of yarn for an afghan that I’ll hopefully start today (since WoW is down, and I am done working my It Works business until the kids wake up & I am able to go to the store and Blitz people!)  Continue reading

Stashbusting |Weeks 7 – 8|

I have been a member at Crochetville since shortly after I started crocheting, well, I guess it was about a year after I started, because I started on Valentine’s Day, 2010 & joined sometime in 2011. Every year over there, there is a thread created for helping you bust through your stash of yarn (mine isn’t huge, which is why I tend to end up in the negative at the end of the year haha). Go ahead & read my intro post here!
