  1. Awesome hat! And so appropriate for the season!

  2. I need help on the pattern for your baby brimmed beanie!!! I saw that several comments addressed the same issue I'm having when I get to round 4 the stitch count doesn't match up. I'm VERY new to crocheting so I don't know if I am just doing something wrong or not, but it seems several other ladies had similar issues...could you help please! Thanks. : )

  3. It could be a typo. I will go back and check. I don't get the messages from the comments and can't always go back and check every single pattern for a comment. If you send me messages through the email it's better. :) I will go check tho.

  4. If you want to make you free flash website I think you need free flash templates .
    Free flash intos is of the best free flash effects that you need.

  8. Hi Everyone, am JOHN ALEX from USA,
    This was how me and my Girlfriend became VAMPIRES. I got a guy from the internet called Mr. Barry who was a VAMPIRE so i told him that me and my Girlfriend would love to become VAMPIRES so he asked me of my Name ,Country, Age ,State , address and in the next 3 days i got the blood sample through the DHL which me and my Girlfriend took in the blood into our body and in the next 30 minutes we turned into a VAMPIRE so if you are blogspot interested in becoming a VAMPIRE. First: Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books, Sure. I understand. You are young; you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, but how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email: or you can contact the great vampires temple on WhatsApp +2349060961651
