Hi! I see there are some lovely items on offer already -  nice bracelets, the cards are very pretty and the lip balm looks yummy!

I'd like to offer these little crochet bags, with compartments inside to hold jewellery or other small, delicate items



Closed up they are about 7 inches across



Hope someone likes them! There will be several different colours to choose from, I'll post more pics soon  Smiley

Here's my collection of lovely goodies from this round:

First the felt flowers from KaoticKrafter - these are great, and I love the way all the cards and packaging are recycled too Cheesy



Three lovely pendants - the leather dragonfly from gala_apples, the domino from craftycakelady, and the sweetie heart from I Sew Cute. They are all fab  Cheesy




And the great bath set from sarahj2001, - soap, lipbalm, blue crochet cloth - I love that seaside fabric!



Thank you very much everyone! Cheesy




Also, I have sent a replacement necklace to rlynn - as all the others arrived pretty quickly I'm assuming that one got lost  Angry  Let's hope this one gets there OK!

I have made some more Charm necklaces but haven't had time to take photos - but I will make them in  whatever colour you choose, just let me know when partners are assigned Smiley
Also, I will not be on the internet much for the next while (due to family illness) so I will answer messages as soon as possible, when I can.
Happy swapping!

Hi, I haven't been in this swap for a while - but I'd love to join this round if there is still space ...

Would anyone be interested in a little Charm necklace like this?



The chain is about 18 inches - I will make up some examples in other colours, I have a lot of beads  Smiley

Thank you for the nice comments!  Cheesy

princessacademy - yes, I tried it with a granny square I had lying around, worked out where the hole should go and then made one up to try - sort of trial and error. It's just about half of one side on the 4th round - 6 or 7 stitches. I chained the stitches instead then worked into the chain on the next round.

All this was because I just don't like starting off from a chain - starting in the middle seems to go a lot faster!
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Really really simple Granny square wrist warmers on: October 14, 2010 04:32:13 PM
Hi this is my first post on the crochet board!
So I was looking for a very easy and quick pattern for wrist warmers as it's getting pretty chilly now.
I found lots of different ones, but none of them seemed to work for my limited skills  Smiley - so I made up my own, and they turned out like this:



Basically just a granny square with some stitches missed out for the thumb, and slip stitched together so the join is down the middle of the palm, not the side. I slip stitched around the top and bottom too for a bit more firmness.



This pair came out a bit smaller as the yarn was thinner I think. I used DK yarn and a 4.5mm hook.

I liked how they turned out - but now I've been looking at them too long, I'm not so sure! That always happens when I make something new Roll Eyes

What do you think?
