1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / HELP! Lionbrand Matinee Swing Jacket on: July 22, 2007 12:38:07 PM
Thanks for clicking!!
We're in despirate need of your help!!!!

My mother is visiting me and working on the LionBrand Matinee Swing jacket(http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/60582A.html?noImages=.)  She just started the sleeves and has questions about the increases.   I reviewed the pattern and I'm confused too.

On Row 1:  Hdc in 3rd ch rom hook (counts as two hdc)....
Inc Row: Ch 2, turn, hdc in first hdc (inc made).

If you follow the directions an increase won't be made.  You're just repeating the same steps as in Row 1. 

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
2  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Operation First Response Charity Auction on: February 22, 2007 02:45:50 PM
Hello everyone!

I am organizing a fine arts and crafts auction to benefit Operation First Response.  This is a 501 (c)3 (ie. registered non-profit).  The mission is to provide supportive services to family members of injured soldiers from Operation Iraqi Freedom (in Iraq) and Operation Enduring Freedom (in Afghanistan).

Regardless of your political opinion (I'm a rather liberal, human rights activist myself) the families of our soldiers deserve our help and support.  The agency puts together backpacks that are given to injured soldiers which include some clothes (because when injured your uniform, which happens to be your only clothing injured soldier are often without anything to wear after their uniform has been cut off of them) and toiletries.  In addition they also fly families to see their injured soldier after they are returned to the US, or provide car services and financial assistance for hotels so families can spend time with their loved one.

If you are interested in donating a piece of fine art or a craft please PM me.  This is an amazing organization and the chapter here in PA is experiencing serious financial strains due to the large number of injured troop being cared for at Walter Reed Hospital.  (The volunteers have even paid for fights with their own credit cards).  I am collecting donations over the next 60 days and plan to organize and ONLINE auction.  You donations are tax deductible and I can arrange for you to receive the appropriate tax info if you request. 

If you'd like more information on Operation First Response, please visit http://www.operationfirstresponse.org

Thank you in advance for your support and interest.
