Welcome

Picture 20Imagine me with a blog spot!

I have things to share that are good for your health and some fun stuff that I would like to show you.  Poems, thoughts that zoom past my head and are caught on word.

I have a love of crochet too, and might share some of my projects as well as some of the sites I have found and my favorite patterns on them.

Where will this blog go?  I don’t know.  I got this a long time ago and didn’t really use it.

Maybe it is time for a change!

      Thank you Georgia for your kind invitation. and for your comment. I didn’t think my patterns were good enough for Raverly. I don’t use any set format for my written patterns so I don’t know how well they would be accepted there.

      Thank you Scherri! Sooo much attention to this pattern! I had to get a written one out, to help with questions on the videos. And now I’m doing a 3rd video . Personally I love this pattern myself. I love visual effects in pictures, so why not in Crochet!

    Please could I have a list of colors you used on your Diamond Granny Square the colors are beautiful. I want to make this for my Queen size bed 🙂

    • chrystalkay says:

      Hi! I am so glad you like it! It will be beautiful for a Queen…. wow! I would love a picture of that when you get through. In the new video, i give the names and brand of the yarns i used. In the former video, i used Amethyst instead of Royalty. Good luck with this!

    Hi,
    I tried doing am afghan for my bed following your tutorial: Diamond square granny. I tried to do one big square that would cover my bed, BUT, After a couple rounds My project started to develop a bump in the middle, a bump I couldn’t flatten up… What could I do in order to avoid a bump in the center?

    Thx for your answer.

    • chrystalkay says:

      That is a tricky question. I have had that problem with other projects and found 2 ways to remedy it but it still means a lot of frogging (rip-it rip-it ). If steam blocking doesn’t do it (a slight bump can be helped by this) them frog it back to about where you think the problem is and use the next largest hook or really loosen your crochet stitches. Look to see if there is room to put an extra stitch or two. It might mean adding a stitch between the bunches here and there but do it symmetrically. I am not there to look at it and help you, I wish I could. This is why I suggested making more than one and connecting them.
