the Crochet Doctor is in

I've been in Seoul, South Korea for 3 months now. As with any international move, there has been emotional ups and downs, but my one constant "up" is crochet. If a crochet hook is in my hand then a smile is on my lips. 

A highlight of my day has been playing crochet doctor for a member of Crochet Connection of Chicago, a Crochet Guild of America chapter. It is something I can actually do from 6500 miles away. This was the question:

"I'm working on a scarf but I'm having some difficulty with the pattern. I'm a bit of a newbie and was hoping someone could help me out. Here's the pattern:

"Row 1: Dc in 5th ch from hook, dc in next ch, *(dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch, sk next ch, dc in next 2 ch; rep from * across to last ch, dc in last ch - 4 pattern reps at the end of this row.
Row 2: Ch 4, turn, sk first 4 dc, *(3 dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch-3 space, sk next 4 dc; rep from * across to last 3 dc, sk last 3 dc, 3 dc in turning ch.

"I have row 1 done but I'm not sure what it means with the '4 pattern reps at the end of this row'
What messes me up is row 2. It says 'sk first 4 dc' but I'm lost as to what to do. I understand what it's saying but still lost. Any help? Thanks!"

This was my response:
It got me thinking of many others who need some help on their crochet projects. With the holiday season now in full swing, maybe that is you. If I could be of any help, please email me at tashchgo {at} yahoo {dot} com. The Crochet Doctor is in!

  2. Complex mechanical parts—an encased set of gears, for example—can be made without meeting. Additive strategies can be used to mix elements and generate way more interior detailing. That’s why GE Aviation has switched to printing the gas nozzles of sure jet engines. It expects to churn out more than 45,000 of the identical design a 12 months, so one would possibly assume that typical manufacturing strategies can be more suitable. But printing technology permits a nozzle that used to be assembled from 20 individually cast elements to be fabricated in a single Bath Sheet Set piece. It additionally be} onerous to imagine that this technology will displace today’s standard ways of creating things in massive portions.
