Looking for Thread

First I want to apoligize for posting this under a reply to the December's crochet challenge.  I'm going to try this again.

I am working a knitted project right now, but starting a nice crochet arron style afghan next week. It's my knitted project that may run out of thread and I need to identify it to find if it's still available. It's old and probably has a dye lot, so I'm not hoping for much.

If anyone knows of a place where I might get help identifying it, please let me know.

It's a horrible raspy thin variegated thread. Maybe it's off white or cream iwth little brown, red, green, and blue speckles in it. Mostly off white or cream colored though. This feels very course and is in the lacy or fingering weight size.

I can give a photo, but I thought I would just ask first a place it can be identified, if not here. If I get lucky here it would be nice, but really I was scoping for some urls.

Thanks!

Creepy Cute magic circle

I am trying to make a friend the Ninja from the Creepy Cute book, and I can't seem to get started. I'm not understanding the directions from the book. Do I work the stitches into the loop and is it a single stand or double strand? I can't seem to get it to work.

Work for yarn!

I hope this is okay but I just created a new weight loss/fitness community on LJ for us crocheters/knitters who are also looking to get fit & lose weight. Consider this challenge!

Crochet lessons, any tips?

Has anyone ever given crochet lessons before? I just posted my first crochet lesson ads and I'm hoping I'm doing this right...

If you've ever given lessons before, what do you wish you had known when you started?

If you've TAKEN lessons before, what do you wish they had done?

I've taught friends, but never had to actually be an authority before. I have years under my belt, but nothing official.

Jayne hat?

Hi! I belong to a couple of these communities, and I need some help. Awhile back, someone posted a pattern for a Jayne hat (from firefly). I looked everywhere, and now I can't find it, which is a problem cuz a couple guy friends of mine want me to make them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
