"This was my first time using Skype. I used the webcam in my laptop and a mic I had lying around. I think it was easier doing the class on Skype because I could see Kim doing the stitches better, Taking the class via webcam is so convenient!!!! It was super easy to schedule. I am definitely going to continue taking knitting classes via webcam with Kim...then crochet....."

I have attempted Purple Textures from Dreamy Cocoons, 3 times, and cannot figure out the start. If yoy don't join, do you turn and go back with the sc's to end up with 32? Also, even after I started as best I could, the increases didn't seem to fall in the correct places.

If you are having trouble with the first round of the Purple textures Cocoon pattern in Dreamy Cocoons, look up a stitch called the foundation single crochet.
Here are some videos that may help:
The increases are then worked like on the toe of a sock with some texture in between.

Recently, a couple college students have contacted me. The first was a fashion design student who needed a crochet sample maker. The second was a student working on her BFA who is interested in textiles and lace - how cool is that. As I read over my reply e-mail to the BFA student, I realized I had elements of a mission statement forming. I wrote:
