Ronda has expressed the need for a newer vehicle to transport squares and blankets. Helen Flagg has proposed to the US Group that we raise funds to help KAS purchase a car. The idea has gone global and there is an initiative on the forum about it. Check the latest ezine video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VK9mbUrGWI&feature=youtu.be
Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you...we were in Vermont when I read this and I'm still getting back to my rhythm! Getting a group together sounds like a good idea. Finding a central meeting place could be tricky... but I'm interested. Melissa hosted us at her apartment last time. I can host here in Melrose Park sometime if that's convenient. Thanks for taking the initiative to get this going!
Hi Donna, adding sides to a square can be tricky. A couple of tips: a smaller hook might help; counting the stitches on 2 sides, if it's a granny square; making sure the first added round is absolutely flat.
Now, the second problem might be the corners. I find I work best with hdc around and then (2hdc, ch 1 2hdc) in each corner.
Try these and if you have any questions just ask. I'm always happy to help a fellow crocheter.....don't ask me about knitting though LOL
Dear Donna, Thank you so much for your compliments. Like all my other KAS sisters, you all are always sooo kind! I saw the pattern on Ravelry. It was uploaded by Carola Wijma under "Celtic Knot". She gives a very clear description accompanied with pictures and clear instructions. The knot consists of three separate small parts. Wonderful that I could surprise you with an Irish Design, the symbol of Solidarity. xoxo
If you mean Hibachi, then I know it well. My husband plays there from time-to-time! Dave is a vegetarian and I am an almost vegetarian so we don't eat there but I can appreciate the ambiance and the views. Hope you enjoyed it!
