11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Granny's Daughters Swap R7 Gallery on: May 01, 2011 06:43:18 PM
That little bag is so cute! Definitely might have to make one.

I received from mangospanker! (HA, best name ever!)

The full load:


And my favorite, the little green and blue ones. Unfortunately the green didn't come out, but they're fab.


Thanks to both mangospanker and craftADDchick for organizing.

I'm fine with an extension, but mine will probably be sent out in the next week or so anyway. Roll Eyes

For a chuckle, check out Mason-Dixon Knitting's joining techniques. One includes cream cheese!  Cheesy

Happy April Fools everyone!

P.S. I love the duckie avatars. My best friend's nickname is Duckie, because he sticks his lips out when he plays the bass. Pahhaha.  Tongue

I checked out the link for joining as you go. Holy confusing!
It's a lot easier with squares in your hand, trust me.

It does, but it's only small sections and they aren't very noticeable.  The item will stay together nicely with this join.
Yeah, but it goes by really quickly and I don't mind it that much.

I used the black yarn as the joining round, so the blanket will be made up of 2 round grannies.

I am having so much fun with this and we don't even have partners yet!  I was crocheting on the bus to a fieldtrip and two of my kids asked what I was doing.  I explained about Granny Squares and Granny's Daughters and when we got there, they asked how many 'babies' I had made.  Hee.  It was really cute.

Awh baby grannies! Rename the swap I say!

@craftADDchick: still migraining, haven't forgotten to get you instructions!

Thanks for the love guys! I can't wait till its finished!!  Grin

OnePinkHippo, that looks great! How long does it take to join them with that method? I was planning to sc mine together...
Really quick! Did I tell you about the method? I slip stitched between the granny chain areas... does that even make sense?  Undecided I have a migraine now, and can explain better tomorrow, but for example, for the corners, I chained one and then slipped it through the next square... ok, that really doesn't make sense,  ::)haha, I can explain better tomorrow!


So, you added a round of black and then joined them? Now, I'm extra curious about the method you used. I hope the migraine isn't a bad one! Get some rest Smiley

I joined them as I went. I'm sure I can find a better explanation... there's a whole method to just join grannies as you crochet the last round. I'll look around. I have an exam tomorrow, but I should get it to you soon. (Like, when I'm procrastinating.  Tongue)

20  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Doilies shouldn't curl...right? on: March 27, 2011 05:35:59 PM
Normally when crochet does this it's because you don't have enough stitches in your rounds.  If it were me, I'd rip back to a point where it's not curling and try it again, but with more stitches in each round.

Good luck!

Thanks! I was thinking that. I think it needs more chaining spaces.
