Hi Carleen,

Welcome aboard. Smile

You can upload a picture to the pattern wizard, and after you've made your choices it will generate a graph with each square being one stitch.
The standard crochet choice is best for single crochet, while the tunisian gives you more choices to make because it is so different from standard.

Hope that is helpful, and if not, feel free to post more questions.


I've heard great things about 7 and XP.  It's such a shame XP is old and not a current product.  Frown!  It's a learning curve, but I have no doubt you'll master it!  Kiss  Kind of jealous here...I really wish I could do without Windows.  I wish my favorite graphics program didn't require it.  Frown  I'm just thinking of the ordeal from today.  I run an alternative PDF reader to Adobe...Adobe had become so cumbersome and I finally gave up on it.  So I installed Foxit some time ago.  It worked great...and then today I noticed it had put some malware on my system...UGH!  Yell  I just got finished with an ordeal where another program (a newly installed one) had put crapware on my system, and it took all day (and more) just to get it off of here.  Now I can't even use the program that I've been using for so long to read PDFs.  Yell  I don't know what to use and where to find something that won't have malware!

I'd so much rather run Linux and not have to deal with this!  Yell


So is she getting spoiled with all of the attention and being home, then?  Kiss

I can understand why you wouldn't want to show her, knowing you were going to win...there would be no point in it!  Why did the judge think a snow nose was a disqualifying fault?  Looks like an adorable nose to me!  Kiss

Well, I think as long as she's loved and cherished, that's the most important thing...and it sounds like she is!  Kiss

Oh Melanie, I'm sorry about your hooks. My hooks have survived several cross country moves (most of them), but I've not had to contend with a disaster.
I did recently have to replace some that I lost somewhere along the way, and found that none of the big box stores in my area carry afghan hooks, and no Boye hooks of any kind.

Simplicity and Herrschnerr's both carry a nice selection.

You're right about the stitches being wider, of course Embarassed.  Just goes to show I shouldn't think before I've had my full dose of caffeine. You'll have to keep an eye on me with math anyway, I have to check and double check.

I was thinking a simple scarf pattern would be a perfect place to start. We can wait til you have a chance to replace your hooks. That gives me time to finish up some other projects.

About my "square" sc, I'm not sure how I got there except that when I was a child I worked hard to keep my stitches neat and even. Found a way to wrap the yarn around my fingers so that I had complete control over it, and using my fingers to control my working piece as well.
All of that being said, I'm not sure it's a "good" thing either. Most of the patterns I've seen have a gauge with wider stitches. I have to make adjustments, and measure, measure, measure.

Although the photo is of a crochet-covered charging bull, this article talks about both knitting and crochet:

Does this spark any ideas?  Thinking of a couple of things in my area...  Smiley
