I am reading how some of you are picking up Christmas lights on clearance. I tried to find some over a week ago at several different places and completely sold out! All I buy right now are just strings of white lights for my year round tree. (Not a Christmas one). I was a little late looking for them.

I made this big ole ham for dinner but it didn't sound good to me anymore after reading about Star's turkey. So I had a peanut butter and banana sandwich instead.

I did very well, thanks for asking!!!

Seriously? Yes, I got our front room organized. We don't have a garage so that is our "storage room". We keep a lot of our outdoor Christmas decorations and the grandchildren's toys in there. Things were shuffled around and I got it squared away! I also got a cabinet cleaned up and organized and a few other things.

Thank you. I did feel better this morning, but by this afternoon, I was exhausted. I took a short 10-minute nap while the kids were at recess.

That IS complicated!!! I would definitely need a picture and then still might not "get" it!!! That is a good idea to work a smaller chain and see how it works! I felt like I was doing "Twister" while I was reading this!!! Either that or singing "The rib bone's connected to the ...."


Originally Posted by MerryCarey View Post

It involves a super-long chain, then begins with a cluster, goes into a tight ripple pattern, then in the center of the chain is a cluster, then more tight ripples. Then you "weave" the ripples around each other with the center cluster at the top (you need a photo to really "get" this), then pick up the yarn again and join to the beginning cluster. It makes a kind of flat helix shape with a cluster at either end that you then crochet around to form a panel. Then three of these panels are sewn together and edged with a border. The devil of it is that when I work it, the ripple pattern doesn't hit the center of the chain and the end of the chain where it should. I must be making some really dumb dope-slap wrong-assumption mistake, because mathematically it should work. Another frustration is that it takes hours to crochet all those chains and ripples to find out that it isn't working! I may try figuring out the chain for a shorter "helix" mathematically and work that to see if I can spot where I go wrong. Or just give up for another year or two ...

That's when I want to change up a pattern! Truly, the only math you have to do is count--and a onea and a twoa....

Well, that means leave me out of crocheting if it involves math! I didn't do so well in math at school!
