Returning after a huge gap

Well..... I have just looked at when I last posted. 10 years nearly!!A lot has happened but I hope to start contributing knitted and crocheted items again soon. Unfortunately my mother passed away and she was by far the most prolific out of the two of us so it won't be over 100 hats in a parcel! I have been going through the discussions on the site today and will try and only send large parcels to cut down costs.I have also had to move into a tiny flat with no room for my yarn stash...... A lot…See More

Hi. I've finally made it to the forum! I managed to finish another square and three quarters of another one before I came to Edinburgh but have not managed to do any since here... I got the ezine, was quite emotional to see/read it all. I see that you saw some of yours, that's really good! Catch up with you when I'm back in Soton.

Hi! Was reading Janet's page and picked up your comment about cats and had to laugh because my cat is at my feet demanding attention and if I don't get up and attend to her (food, food, food) I'll get a little nip on my heel - so I'm off - slave to the queen.

Your cat sounds like me--thyroid and arthitits! LOL :) ! Good luck with the crochet stitiches. I think that you will be able to figure out the different terms--there may be conversion charts on the internet. I did mention cats in this thread. I do not have a cat as my oldest son is very allergic to cats. Now that he is married, my husband and I were thinking of adopting a cat. We both love dogs and cats. My concern now is that my dog, Bruno, is afraid of cats. He is a great friend and getting quite elderly so we do not want to upset him too much. My neighbor's cats consider my husband and I as extended family so we get our cat-love from them. Have a wonderful day! Best, Janet

Good morning Suzan! I hope that you are well today. Should you have any difficulties with my instructions, just drop me a line. I usually don't check the forum over the weekend (since I work full time, weekends are for shopping, cleaning, etc) but I will check this weekend for questions. I think that American and British crocheting terms may be different for some stitches. And, please check my metric conversions and dimensions. If it is easier or faster, you can e-mail me at with questions. I hope to talk with you soon! Best, Janet

Hello Suzan
I live in North Baddesley - just down the road from you! I am having difficulty in navagating this forum but I am willing to learn. I was trying to relay a message to you and found I had put us down as friends with out explaining or sending a message to you. I seem to settle down to read this forum at night and obviously feeling a bit tired - hence the mistake. I will settle down tomorrow and try to learn during he day and may even try to put on a photograph. Anyway your work is lovely and I send you my best wishes to you.

Go for it! The hats are simple to make. The fun is in the colors and then seeing how it comes out in the end. The ribbed hats that I made were also from rectangles. For one hat I used single crochet and for the other I used half double crochet. The ribbed effect is achieved by picking up only the front half of the loop in every row. I made these rectangles a bit longer on the shorter side of the rectangle, finished the top the same and then rolled up a "cuff". The red and black hat was made from a rectangle (red center with black edging) where I stitched both the top of the hat and the side of the hat in a straight seam. I folded the two top corners down until they met in the middle and tacked the two points down. I then added a black "cuff" by using a half double crochet around the circumference of the head opening. Remember that when you add the contrasting black "cuff" you need to have the wrong side (inside) of the hat facing you so that when you turn up the "cuff", the right side is shows. Last, I added the pom-pom where the two top points meet. I hope this was not too confusing. Have fun and I can' wait to see your creations!
Best, Janet

Hi Suzan! Many thanks for the compliment on the hats. Yes, they are made from rectangles. I made all my hats from rectangles. for the multi-colored hats with the black edging. I just started with a double crocheted rectangle about 2.5 inches (approx 6.4 cm) by 5 inches (approx 12.8 cm) made from some left over yarn. I added a black half double crochet border and kept adding half double rochet borders in colors that I thought blended well, ending with black. I folded the rectangle in half, sewing the shorter sides together leaving about 1.5 inches (appproximately 3.8 cm) open at the bottom. I used a simple runnning stitch around the top and pulled the thread tightly to close the opening. I made an "X" stitch and then tied a stitcers knot on the inside of the hat to secure it. Lastly, I added a pom-pom to the very top and turned up the bottom edges into a "cuff". I did put a single tacking stitch at the back of the hat to keep the "cuff" in place. Thanks for asking! I love your pictures, expecially the hats! I love colorful hats! Have a wonderful day! I hope that I did the conversion to metric correctly. Best Regards, Janet.

This was it - I think and I was referring to you flag square.
Uitstekend ! The colours almost glow.
And yes Suzane, my blue crocheted blanket was done in a baby four ply yarn which was new on the shelves this year. I want to find a 'tarantaal' pattern which is on almost everything in the tourist shops. We have a few lives ones running around our village much to my cats horror - what with those and the hadeda's no wonder they stay inside so much -not to mention the leguaan that lives in the culvert.

Hi Suzan, my last comment was under your photo of the flag square and not on this page and it was there a moment or two ago. But if you don't see it I'll rewrite, okay.
