ETA by fantastcmio: quoting helpful posts from below:

Scarf:
I used a size J hook.  Double crochet stitch.

Chain 10, DC back 2, finish row, Chain 2, DC, etc etc etc..


Mixed yarn is easy....you just start with it and go until you think it's long enough...

My three colored block is harder....you have to start and stop for each block...some might think I did like granny squares, but I don't know how to do those yet....

Actually what I did, was when I had a big enough block, I'd stop before the last stitch of the row, cut the yarn about 2 inches from the stitch, tie on the next color and keep going till that block was long enough and so on....

Hope that's understandable.  I dont' understand the instructions about crocheting personally.  I learned by having someone sit me down and show me (which is why I don't know granny squares yet) so it's hard for me to write instructions.

Good luck on your own!!!  If you can't do it though, remember you can always order from my website. =)  Gotta make a sale somewhere.  heheh

Afghan:
For the afghans, I used a Q hook (at walmart it's the big baby blue one).

I used three colors of yarn.  I usually pick a mixed skein I like and then pick two nice corresponding colors.  For the picture above, the mixed skein was blue, green, purple, and off-white, so the corresponding colors were the blue and green.  It took 3 skeins of each color to complete, and one extra skein for the fringe, I used off-white for the fringe.

I tied all three colors together and did a DC until I was finished, re-attaching colors when the skein runs out.  Just go until it's wide enough and long enough for you.

The fringe I attached with a small gray plastic hook I bought at walmart, I don't know what size it is.  And I weaved in the ends of all the yarn with a size J hook.

I hope that helps.  It's just a basic afghan.  And it's super warm.

I'm sorry about that.  Geocities has been giving me a lot of problems and I can't really complain because I have a free account.  Just keep hold of the link it'll be back up soon I promise.  It's never down for more than an hour.  And as soon as the site is back up the pics on here will be back up too.
