"Can you give us some tips on what not to do when you are crocheting?"
1. Do not eat messy or sticky snacks.
No Cheetoz, greasy chips or melted chocolate.
It gets your work all messy, or your hook all sticky.
My favorite snack while crocheting is
Coffee and M and M's.
"They melt in your mouth, not your hands".
2. Do not get mad or upset and cry.
It gets your project wet.
But really, if you
are emotional it can change your tension, or mess up your stitch count,
which causes more frustration.
look through patterns books or go on line, until you are calm.
3. Do not choose a pattern that is beyond your skill level.
If the pattern is too hard for you, you may get upset, and quit. There is nothing wrong with being challenged, but if it's too hard, you just might give up.
There are literally thousands of patterns that are in each skill level. Move up to harder things when you feel are ready.
This is a great Yarn Scrap Buster!
Takes very little yarn! And makes really pretty ornaments that you can use as gift tags, place makers or decorations.

I began looking through my bins of projects,
and found one similar.
that are stitched together to form a thick useful design.
The "Modern Twist" I am giving it, is to use some new yarns in fun Variegated colors, along with a solid.
Acrylic yarn is not suggested, as it will burn.

It's called Bunches Of Hugs. It's a Worsted weight (4) yarn.
It's very soft, and durable at the same time.

Both solids and Variegated.
Also, My neighbor is having a baby. It's a Win, Win.

so they will be able to use it for well into their toddler years.
Works great for Boys and Girls, as well as neutral colors.
Do not cute your yarn, let the yarn trail up the said.

There is nothing cuter then a Penguin,
so I thought a cute Holiday Penguin Coaster was the thing
to design for one of the
I actually designed it last year, but decided to wait till
this year to release it.
It is so fun and adorable, it was worth the wait.
This Coaster can be crocheted in Acrylic or Cotton yarn.
Cotton is more absorbent, but either one will work.
