When teaching brand new crocheters how to make a swatch of one stitch or another, I always remind them of this.

Always turn your work away from you. When you get to the end of a row, chain one or two (loosely!) or what ever you need and then turn the work, from the needle, away from you. Not toward you. You don't want that chain to get twisted the wrong way because then you'll never find the proper spot to put your last stitch of the next row.

Plus, this way it's easier to eye that elusive last stitch that people always miss making for trapezoidal drama Smiley
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Joining back post double crochet in the round? on: September 28, 2006 09:07:03 AM
I'm trying to write a pattern that involves joining back post double crochet rows in the round. The problem is, that the way I do it leaves holes. I start a round with a ch2, and then back post double crochet all the way around, and then i will back post double crochet the ch2 just like it was a dc. Is this wrong?

I know it would be easier and prettier if i just spiraled the rows instead of joining, but i'm trying to be all fancy-pants about writing my first pattern. Is this just how it should be done? Just spiral it?

Email me - I live in Elkorn which is like 1/2 hour from Milwaukee an hour from Madison and about an hour from Chicago.  I am totally up for something crafty!  I feel very alone in the crafting world right now (sob).  She says surrounded by kids and animals Cheesy

Anyone up for an area-wide Stitch 'n' Bitch (and the like) meetup?!

I think it would rock off our proverbial socks!

I'm thinking April or May-ish.

Sleep on it and email me at Krisppikle@yahoo.com .

We also decided that it was our anniversary party, since the first S'N'B meeting was in June last year...

Hey Naomi, sign me up!

I want in on this... i was just wondering about my sack o' knit/crochet crap that i never wear/use yesterday... wondering if i should give it away, sell it or chuck it.

Maybe have it a Lazy Janes... they do craft fairs there.

I know a few crafters about town this may not reach, so i'll post it on the Stitch 'N' Bitch yahoo group (groups.yahoo.com/group/stitchnbitchmadison)
