I searched through the Chit Chat for a crochet site I thought was here and finally was too lazy to keep on checking. Hence, here is a new thread about crochet.

There are so many out there who are making instructional videos of new techniques. I love being able to 'see' how others do actual stitches. The Crocodile stitch is very popular right now. I came across this cool purse made in this stitch and wanted to share it with you.

If anyone has any pics of their crocheted items, please, share with us. Feel free to post any other instructional videos that you like. I am always looking for new or cool designs and tips.

I just recently made two 'Sock Monkey' purses, one to sell and one to give away. I will try and post pics of this. I just looked at my grandson's sock monkey toy and duplicated the design on a little purse that I make. Lots of fun! :ecstatic:

So cool! I've not done any crocheting since you came to visit and taught me... so this may help refresh my mind and help me begin again when I have time....

after I move probably.. when we have no internet or cable for awhile in December...

If I can't learn from this video, then you will have to just come visit again to teach me all over! LOL!

Do you think I could do this purse / stitch? Or is it over my skill level as a beginner? I love the look of it.

Dearest Tazzy-

I forgot what you were crocheting when we were together. :shrugs: But I found a beginners crochet video that is helpful. It has 5 basic stitches for everyone who wishes to learn. The main thing in crocheting is the tension of the yarn as you crochet. This is something that practicing at getting it right truly helps.

My daughter has very tight crochet stitches and mine seem looser than Mom's and Lisa's even. I can tell you that I look forward to the thought of being with you again sometime in the future! I want to come in winter and get lots of snow! Then we have to 'stay in' and crochet while chatting and drinking hot cocoa! :tea:

I haven't done crochet since I was a little girl. I made a massive, basic stitch, mutli-coloured bedspread for my mum and dad ... I think for a wedding anniversary.

This bag video might just get me going again!

Have just watched the video (sound off, as my husband is watching the tv!). The finished bag looks quite stiff (maybe a piece of card has been slipped into it, to make it look nice for the making of the video), but I'm wondering how you could give the bag enough substance so that the bottom and sides don't sag.

:flowers:

There is something that most everyone does when crocheting that I never do. In numerous videos I have noticed that they leave a very short tail of yarn to crochet into the pattern when they are done. WRONG! If you take all the time to make something lovely, why would you ever want it to come apart?

ALWAYS leave a tail of 5 or 6 inches long to sew with a darning needle back under the stitches.

When joining yarn always TIE the two ends together twice into a knot. This makes sure to secure the yarn from never unraveling. The worst thing is to have a garment come apart.

I have repaired several very expensive items that have come apart due to the crocheter not leaving enough yarn at the end and not sewing that yarn back into the finished piece.

When sewing on buttons or little detail pieces always be sure to sew them very securely onto your piece or they will come off. The average person has no idea how to repair a garment that comes apart.

Hey, I thought I'd share my latest cuteness that I made. This is for a newborn - 3 months, hat and Mary Janes. I am going to a shower on Saturday for a friend of my daughter's who is having a girl. I cannot wait to show her this! I do not know why it is on it's side but you get the gist.

The hat came out of the gift bag and all the sisters squeeled like 'little girls!' Then the sister looked down and saw the shoes in the bag and they all yelled loudly when the sister held them up together. My husband was so funny. He said loudly, "I bought the yarn!" :lol2: He told me later, "Nobody else's gift seemed so appreciated!" Men just do not react the same way to such cuteness and us girly women. :ecstatic:

There so gorgeous Chris.

I wholeheartedly agree with you, Gabe. I am jealous of Chris' talent. My mom could crochet perfectly & I could never match up to it so didn't continue. Now since I'm older & retired I with that I could do it. I have done some beautiful X stitch in the past but can no longer do it. Even with my contacts, reading glasses & magnifying glass I still can't see the small stitches. To add to that I can't stand to have the magnifying glass hanging around my neck because of the pain. I feel like that I've been put out to pasture or :deadhorse::)
