Playing with thread is such a fun way to start the new year, don't you agree? LOL...I know that thread is not everyone's cup of tea, but I do enjoy creating tiny little pieces with it...
As I was playing, I came up with these charming little hearts, and decided to turn them into jewelry pieces!

Here is my version of the Floating Shells pattern! This will make a beautiful and WARM blanket for someone special, or any number of other projects!
Crocheting "in the round" is, very simply, crocheting a round or oval shape, by working your stitches AROUND your beginning chain. This can be accomplished in a number of ways, but surprisingly, a LOT of people just don't get it!
I have compiled some tips, and taken some pictures, to help you on your journey!
I see a lot of questions in the groups I am in, about gauge...What IS gauge? Why do I have to "match gauge"? How do I know if my gauge is right? Is gauge even important?
So, let's take a little look at gauge! First of all~What IS gauge? Well~ the technical meaning is "the number of stitches/rows to the inch". This means how many stitches do we need to create, to make it measure 1 inch long, or how many rows do we need to complete to make it measure 1 inch high? This number can change, depending on LOTS of different things. What size is your hook? What size is your yarn? How is your tension~loose, tight, in-between? What stitch are you doing?
