Hello!  Well, it’s been almost a year since I started an Instagram account (joyfuljaxcrochets.and.knits) to connect with other crocheters and knitters (yes, I finally got the knack of continental knitting – hurray!) and other crafters.  I can honestly say it has been so much fun and so inspiring connecting with some really special people all around this amazing planet!  If you are on Insta, please connect.  And if you aren’t, but you are looking for an easy way to post and view other’s posts, I think you’d love it.  It’s easier for me.  I connect with family and friends on there too.  I actually like it better than Facebook.  It seems to have more personal posts and not as much sharing of videos and political posts, etc.  At least the people I follow are that way.  And you can make your profile private or public.

Have a blessed holiday season and maybe I’ll see you on IG!





…Try, Try Again


Hi Friends,

I may finally be getting the hang of continental style knitting! I am practicing on this ribbed scarf. It is making more sense than before and my fingers are working the way they are suppose too. Thank you, Lord! Maybe this ‘crochet girl’ will be able to knit after all!!

Here is a Youtube video showing this style. Click HERE for link.  Which way do you enjoy knitting?

Now here’s hoping I get better at deciphering knit patterns!

Okay, off to my day job!
