Surfing Pinterest This Evening….

If you’re like me, just opening the Pinterest app causes you to lose all track of time. If you’re like me, as a crafter, you are inspired to countless new “Oh, I am SO going to try that” projects with every scroll! AND, if you’re like me, you sometimes find yourself wishing someone would stop your hand from scrolling down the Pinterest page just once more….!!

I thought I would share my Pinterest profile with you…. While it is predominantly crochet and knitting links, there may be other topics of interest I follow that may inspire you as much as they do me!

Feel free to “Follow Me” as I collect these sources of inspiration!

The Hiding Place

This is truly my favorite video.
Cory and her sister Betsy are an inspiration to me.

You can watch the first of 15 videos here, and find the rest in my YouTube channel here:

If you haven’t read the book, the Hiding Place, I highly recommend it.

Helpful crochet tip with videos!

I just have to share these two videos with you, referred to me by a Ravelry friend!

These videos teach how to begin a double-crochet row with a double crochet,
instead of the usual ch3.

The chain 3 usually leaves a loop that just doesn’t blend well with the rest of the dc’s.

The first video teaches the method using just one color …

and this next video teaches the method when working a color change …

I wish I had learned these methods 10 years ago when I taught myself crochet!

Hope this has been helpful!
