WORKING IN ROW ENDS
Sometimes a pattern has you work rows of
stitches and then to form a border or edging
you are instructed to "work in the row ends". The row ends are the first & last stitches you did on each row.
If the rows are single crochet stitches then the "end of the row" refers to
making the required stitches around the first & last single crochet stitches on each row.
If the first & last stitches on the row are double crochet stitches you work around the post of the double crochet stitches.
No matter what kind of stitch you are using you work around the actual stitch on the end of the row... not into the top of it.
The first photo in the following picture
shows a swatch turned on its side
with the ends of the rows on the top. I used a white cotton thread to work into the
row ends so you could see where the stitches go. The second photo shows the entire
piece with a border added. I worked one single crochet into each row end, one single
into each unworked loop of the foundation chain, one single in each row end up the opposite
side, and one single in each stitch on the last row I had made. For each corner I worked
3 singles so the motif wouldn't curl up.

When adding an edging/border to a piece
(like the bookmark pattern in this issue),
sew a contrasting piece of yarn or thread
through every two rows to help with placement.

A hole that you can feed the toilet tissue through?

Your pattern should tell you what to do in the chain 2 space just prior to that language.
Then you chain 3.
Is your pattern online?

Cool idea... but if all 365 rows are made in one blanket it's going to be pretty big.

The Incident - True story about how God works
This is about my Father In Law, James Hamblin.
We asked for and received prayer from many of our crochet family after his accident and during his recovery process. For those who do not know, James fell in October causing multiple injuries which took months to overcome. He is home now and doing well.
This is his story!

For years my husband, Tim, and I had complained bitterly about the lack of sidewalks in our small town, observing often that if only we had sidewalks, we would walk daily and become models of fitness. So we were thrilled when a community sidewalk project was announced, and watched eagerly as paving neared completion.
Then wishful thinking and reality collided.
"Well, dear," Tim said. "What'll we use as an excuse for not walking now?"
While putting my 4-year-old daughter to bed one evening,
I read her the story of the Prodigal Son. We discussed
how the young son had taken his inheritance and left home,
living it up until he had nothing left. Finally, when he
couldn't even eat as well as pigs, he went home to his
father, who welcomed him.
When we finished the story, I asked my daughter what she
After thinking a moment, she quipped, "Never leave home
without your credit card!"
There is an old joke that I hear every Spring here in the mountains of my home. A police officer sees a car swerving erratically on the road ahead. After pulling the car over he walks up to question the driver. The man looks out his car window and says: "I know what you are thinking officer, but I am not drunk. I was just trying to miss all of those potholes."
While trying to explain to our six-year-old daughter how much
technology had changed, my husband pointed to our brand-new
personal computer and told her that when he was in college, a
computer with the same amount of power would have been the size
of a house.
Wide-eyed, our daughter asked, "How big was the mouse?"
A devout cowboy lost his favorite Bible while he was
mending fences out on the range.
Three weeks later a cow walked up carrying the Bible
in its mouth!
The cowboy couldn't believe his eyes. He took the book
out of the cow's mouth, raised his eyes heavenward, and
exclaimed, "It's a miracle!"
"Not really," said the cow. "Your name was written inside
I'd been working on my business degree for about a year when
I finally got to take a popular finance course. I went to the
bookstore to buy the text and was shocked to find out that it
would cost me $96. I asked how much it was worth if I sold it
back at the end of the semester.
"You'll get $24," said the clerk.
"This is insane," I protested as I wrote out the check.
"I know," replied the clerk sympathetically. "I've always
thought that a person who buys a book for $96 and then sells
it back for $24 should fail the course."
A helicopter carrying passengers suddenly loses
engine power and the aircraft begins to decent.
The pilot safely performs an emergency landing
in water, and tells the passengers to remain
seated and to keep the doors closed, stating that
in emergency situations, the aircraft is designed
to stay afloat for 30 minutes, giving rescuers
time to get to them.
Just then a man gets out if his seat and runs over
to open the door. The pilots screams at him, "Didn't
you hear what I said, the aircraft is designed to
stay afloat as long as the doors remain closed?!".
"Of course I heard you", the man replied, "but it's
also designed to fly, and look how good that one

I was accompanying my eight-year-old daughter who
was selling cookies door-to-door for the Girl Scouts.
After visiting several homes, she commented on the
different styles of doorbells: some buzzed, some rang,
We made a game of guessing what the next bell would sound
At the precise moment she touched the doorbell at one house,
the church tower began to chime. She wheeled around with a
look of amazement on her face. "Now that's a doorbell!"
A three-year-old in the congregation regularly watched
football games with his father. So much so, that he
knew some of the signals the referee makes.
On a recent Sunday, as the pastor raised his hands high
to offer a blessing, the child interrupted the service
by shouting, "Touchdown!"
Returning from a trip to visit my grandmother in Canada, I was stopped by a state trooper in New York for exceeding the speed limit. Grateful to have received a warning instead of a ticket, I gave him a small bag of my grandmother's delicious chocolate-chip cookies and proceeded on my way.
Later, I was stopped by another trooper.
"What have I done?" I asked.
"Nothing," the trooper said, smiling. "I heard you were passing out great chocolate-chip cookies."
Ole and Svenya had really 'packed on the pounds' by over-eating
during the Thanksgiving Holidays, so their doctor put them on
the same diet.
'I want you to eat regularly for 2 days, then skip a day, and
repeat this procedure for 2 weeks. The next time I see you,
you should have lost at least 5 pounds.
When the Norwegians returned, they shocked their doctor by having
lost nearly 25 POUNDS each.
'Why, that's positively amazing!' the doctor said. 'Did you follow
Then Ole and Svenya nodded in unison and Ole said,
'We vant to tell you though, we taut we was gonna drop dead dat
'From hunger, you mean?' Said the doctor.
'No, yust from all dat skippin!' said Svenya.
