    Dear Carol,
    Do you think I could use Vanna’s Choice yarn? I just got such a great deal today at Ollie’s on this yarn. A 7 ounce skein was only $2.99 and I bought 10 skiens in different colors.

  4. Hi Nancy-Vanna’s choice should be just fine! Keep the stitches tight, that’s what holds the form and then firmly stuff. It holds its shape very well without the use of plastic inserts. You got a real deal on Vanna’s!

    Help! I have been a crocheter for almost 50 years but I can’t for the life of me figure out how to put the sofa together. I am very frustrated. Could you please email me with a more specific set of instructions for putting it together? Thank you so much for your help.


  6. I am currently out of town, but will put something together for you when I get back after the 1st. Did you get the step by step pictures? It’s a fold and sew process.
    Carol
