my name is Nora Toney. I am new member. I live in Unicoi, Tn. I love to crochet.
Welcome .... I've been a member for about a year now ... Crocheting is my fav of working with yarns - I have been crocheting for years and years and years taught when I was a girl ... a long time ago. over 30years, my fav to make is afghans ... my family calls me the afghan queen. I make about 8 - 12 a year, depending on the size and time I have. I love the feel of a crochet hook between your fingers and the yarn as it makes it way around and through the fingers to the hook and nothing makes a feel as good a finishing a project.
Welcome to the page ... I hope you get lots out of it .... there's always something new to learn in crochet!

Hi, Nora Toney I'm new to the site as well, I live in St. Petersburg, FL and I like to crochet as well. I've been crocheting for a long time but came here to hopefully learn some new techniques and ideas about yarn as well.
Be who you are and say what you mean.
Welcome Nora, glad to know you. Enjoy the forum.
Hi, I am orginally from Tampa, Fla. I am like you. Always looking for new crochet patterns. I been crocheting a long time. But need refreshed on some things. Just like how you weave the ends in when you finish your crochet project.
Hi, I can't remember if I replied back to ya. Thanks. Could you help me. I can't figure out how to weave the ends into a crochet project.Could you tell me how to do it. Thanks, Nora
Hello, I will enjoy myself. Because I have lots of friends now in this forum. Thanks.
What I normally do is take a crochet hook that is about three sizes smaller than the one I actually crocheted the piece with and work my way through the loops of the stitches beside the tail and catch it with the hook and pull it through. . I make it travel a ways through several stitches before I cut it. I.f there is more sticking out after you pull it though trim it with scissors. I don't know if it is the correct way or not but it always has worked for me and it hasn't worked its way out. I use to sew the ends down when I joined a new skein but I learned a technique that is pretty nifty it is called a Russian Join. It keeps from having to tie knots in your piece. If you go to You Tube and type in Russian Join there are a couple of videos that shows you how to do this and it keeps you from having to weave in your ends in the middle of your piece. Now that I know how to do this, I'm using it all the time. Hope this helps.
Thank you. It will help me out. appreciate ya.
Great! Glad I could help. Hope it works for you.
It will. Thank you my friend.
