I was able to read my comments!!
Not sure how I did it...LOL
As for the magnets, I purchased them at JoAnn Fabrics. I tried the magents from Walmart, not NEARLY strong enough.
Now for the question on the cow..".I have a question about the cow pattern (I love all of your patterns by the way.) I'm not sure how to do the nose... in the first row, do you turn back to do the two additional stitches and are you supposed to work them on the original chain or on the new stitches? I'm not very experienced with this stuff yet"
You turn your work upside down, and work on the underside of the origional chain. The reason people use this method, is to get more of an oval shape, instead of a round shape by manking many single crochets into the 2nd chain from the hook, or in a magic ring..etc.
If that doesnt help clear it up, please let me know.. I will take some pictures to show you better what I mean.
