Last night I had to rip out almost 6 inches of the round-yoke cardigan, because of 1/2 a stitch. Yes, I mis-measured my gauge by 1/2 stitch and that meant, by the end of the yoke I was over 30 stitches off the mark. However, I was not heartbroken, on the contrary! I enjoyed making the yoke so much, I was actually excited about doing it again. (I know, I’m a little crazy).

Today I’m prepping for the Caps A la Carte crocheted hat class I’m teaching tomorrow at A Tangled Skein–students are going to be designing their own hats, fun! I think there might still be a spot or two left if you’re in the area and want to sign up. Just call over to the shop.

    That sounds so familiar to me…
    I think I haven’t ever crocheted anything without having to repeat any part of it because I forgot to add a stitch or whatever, lol…
    But this bonnet looks soooo nice anyway!, lol…
    How’s the joke looking now?

    Hey Amy! Been working on the Baby Doll dress from CROCHET ME. Can you help….I am trying to figure out the ssc…shallow single crochet stitch. Vertical threads?? Are you talking about the ones that “twist” to the right side of the sc, back to front. Insert the hook between them to get the stacked look of the sc on the vertical rows on the dress. At least it seems to look like the pattern. It is really hard to figure out this stitch! Using black yarn doesn’t help much either!! lol I’m really tired of rpppppping so I’m trying this on some big yellow yarn to get a better feel for it! Appreciate any advise!

    Ok I am totally freaked out. I am working on the Baby Doll Dress from Crochet Me and I have no idea what the Shallow Single Crochet stitch is or how to do it or what it would look like if I saw it…..Please take pity on me and send me something more than just a repeat of the written instructions as found in the pattern. Please, please, please. Help Me!

    Hi There–please e-mail me: aoh@ipsmedia.com and I'll see what i can do to
    help. The shallow single crochet means that you put the stitch below the
    normal spot where the hook is usually inserted in between the two vertical
    bars of the single crochet. Hope this helps!
