It's the needle you use to darn in the ends. Apparently.

How on earth do you put pics into posts? I'd much rather do that than link.

PurplePidjin Thu 09-Aug-12 20:01:58

There's a link under the Post Message box, Hilda, but only in a few sections (like this one) smile

HildaHotPants Thu 09-Aug-12 20:53:17

Wow, that's really good. I can't view the link to wooly properly due to safari sad

PurplePidjin Thu 09-Aug-12 21:03:54

The woolly hugs site is woollyhugs.com

Does it not load properly in Safari?

Hi PP, no it doesn't! The 'blankets' bit is just a black screen with an icon which makes it look like it's loading but isn't. When you view the blankets from the drop down, some of them come up but not all, and they load very slowly, plus it's not possibly to scroll down to see all the recipients' names.

I'm on a fairly new mac, so it's not that it isn't capable. Sorry, don't mean to put you to any trouble, and I can always view on oh's firefox browser.

Hilda, that's the kind of thingweneed to know! [tha

Well done Somersaults, that's gorgeous! I love the colour too. smile

Somersaults Fri 10-Aug-12 19:08:45

Why thank you smile

In the loop you made in the previous round, work dc, tc, extc, tc, dc. Dc in the dc of the previous round.

Can someone translate this please? confused

PurplePidjin Sun 12-Aug-12 20:22:16

In the loop you made in the previous round, work

A double crochet

Then a treble crochet

Then an extended treble crochet - yaon over twice, through, yarn over, back, yarn over, through two loops, yarn over, through two loops, yarn over and through the remaining two loops

Then another treble

Then another double

By this time you'll have pretty much run out of loop, so do a double crochet in the next stitch.

Mud or crystal??

Somewhere in between! blush I think I get all of that except the extended treble but I'm not sure you could put it any more simply!

PurplePidjin Sun 12-Aug-12 20:42:57

Wrap the yarn round the hook two times, so there are three loops

Poke it through

Wrap the yarn round again

Pull it back through

You have five loops on your hook

Yarn over, back through two loops (like on a normal treble)

Yarn over, back through two more loops

Yarn over, back through the last two loops

I'm a stubborn cow grin

Me too! grin Thank you, I will master this... If only DS would stop waking up 20 minutes after I settle him back to sleep! hmm

PurplePidjin Sun 12-Aug-12 21:11:56

You will you will you *will

grin

Jules146 Sun 12-Aug-12 21:27:09

How do I do a picot I'm sure I should know... blush

PurplePidjin Sun 12-Aug-12 21:34:49

In English, dc ch2 slst into dc smile

Woohoo!!! grin

Jules146 Sun 12-Aug-12 22:38:06

Thanks Pidj! Not that I can seem to fathom the last part I seem to have more than the amount if stitches I should have e.g. More than the two either side and top one... no idea how I managed that!!

Somersaults Mon 13-Aug-12 00:25:58

Jules my first attempt had too many stitches and I couldn't figure out why. I had to start again to fix it.

And Joyful, that looks great!

PurplePidjin Mon 13-Aug-12 07:41:42

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!

Thats not actually terribly important as long as you get the picot in the right place to make a point

It took me a couple of goes to work out that i was doing the next dc in the same st as the picot, giving me 2 on the up and 3 on the down!
