Nice job Jack! I'm sure your mom loved it.

pcmaya, no need to be intimidated by thread crochet! It's all the same stitches and techniques as with yarn, just on a smaller scale. Start with something very simple, like that pretty bookmark that Merryknitter posted on here recently. Then move on to other doily patterns that you find and like.

I have found that good light, Boye steel hooks, and an inexpensive pair of drug store reading glasses makes my thread crochet experience so much more enjoyable.

Give it a try! You know we will always be here to help!
