13 year old to old for hugs

Posted by hooked2yarn on April 27, 2013 at 7:25 AM Comments comments (0)

My 13 year old tells me today that she does not like hugs. This pretty much hurt because I am ALL about hugs.  I find myself asking, if she doesnt like hugs is she upset about something?  Will she tell me if she is?  I hope she doesnt push me away.  Later she falls and hurts her hand, first thing she does when I get to her...curled up in my arms for a hug.

Happy, happy, joy, joy!!!

Our middle daughter is now 13 and has been invited to go to another state with her best friend and her family.  I completely tr...

Lhdc or Long half double crochet

Long half double crochet = Lhdc

This Lhdc is called so because you are doing a hd in the stitch below the row you would normally do the hdc in.  This yarn was kinda hard to see but when working the moebius headwrap on row 3 you see the top stitches from the FPDC, you will insert hook in that go completely through both sides and finish the hdc.

Front Post Double Crochet

I am hoping these instructions help understand FPDC a little bit.  Please excuse the dry hands, apparently I need lotion, haha.  Notice how the stitch goes “around the post” of the previous stitch?

One day while at work I got an email from a friend.  Attached was this link.  Since its the same name as mine I thought it was very interesting.  I am sharing it with you because I have incorperated it into a hat, which is now one of my favorites.
