OK so I see a lot of the same questions asked over and over.  Instead of telling people 'use a search engine'  I typically do take the time out to answer each and every one.  Today I got asked one of the questions I answer most often, and I thought to myself  "Self, why dont I just write this all down so I can link to it or just copy and past it?"  I laughed at myself and said  "Why self that will never work... or would it?"          
So here we are.  My 'Help!! How do I _____________?  I will slowly add to the page as I come across common help requests.  Heck I might even throw in random stuff that just might be handy in someone elses case.   Feel free to leave a question in the comments if you want me to add it to the page.

  1. I Just Paid for the Bohemian Boho Shawl Pattern "pattern" but now I am afraid to purchase the yarn to start it after reading the reviews. This is really a hot mess and I am so sorry for what everyone else has gone through. Since I've already paid for the pattern, would someone PLEASE send me the corrections or the word.doc that was mentioned? I can be reached at . I would love all of us to be able to crochet this pattern successfully and post pictures in spite of some one else's lack of respect and integrity for another's work. We can posts our pictures of our finished work and give credit to the original and rightful owner of the pattern.
