    CrochetBlogger Thanks again for the Link Love! I really appreciate it! :-) Have a great day!

    I’m really interested in thread croched, and there just don’t seem to be that many patterns out there – – or pattern books, for that matter. Any suggestions?

    BTW – – love the blog.

    Old Geezer Crocheter Thanks! I’d head over to Ravelry and do a pattern search. You can do an advanced search where you look just for certain yarn weights, including threads, and you should find lots of pattern results.
