11  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: WIP- My Mario Rug on: June 30, 2010 11:41:45 AM
I'll be posting pictures of my progress as soon as I get a camera that isn't on my cell phone.

Ok, so I couldn't wait until I could clip a camera from my parents or a coworker, cellphone pictures it is!

Can't argue with that--I carry a skein of yarn in my bag and work on some when I've nothing to do at work ^^; I've nearly timed myself to 20 min per square!...after I get a good rhythm, of course. lol

I keep a skein of one color or another for myself in my purse, too. I can get a good flying rhythm going and get one done in about 12 minutes right now.  If I'm actually taking care, it takes close to 20.

I think I may give the single crochet linkage a try---would it be better to use both loops of both squares or just one loop per square?

I haven't crocheted something of this caliber together yet.  I'm sewing my rug together, but I've found either way, that if you go through the back look in the stitches instead of both, you get a less noticeable seam.

it gives it a bit of a pooch in the crotch area, but in a pinch, you can tie the sleeves for pockets.  that's what I just did (the sleeves were hanging out.. i had to button at the third button Sad).  I'm on my way in my new skirt to buy more shirts to make more skirts!

Thanks for the help!  If you could email me a copy of the spreadsheet, I'd love you forever!  My email address is amyrochelleis AT gmail DOT com.  I'm doing a 3 round, slightly modified version of the granny square she used, with a G hook.

I'll be posting pictures of my progress as soon as I get a camera that isn't on my cell phone.
15  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / WIP- My Mario Rug (PIC ADDED 6/30) on: June 22, 2010 02:08:53 PM
I just started my own flying Mario Rug, inspired (let me rephrase, pretty much stolen from) enemyairship's 7x7ft rug seen here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=314101.0

I tried to get in touch with her to get her square count and such, but had no luck, so I'm pretty much counting pixels and flying by the seat of my pants.  I'm really bad at keeping track of numbers, so I'm going to use this as my counting space, etc.  And with general updates on my progress.

She used 6in granny squares, yielding a 7' rug.  My boy and I don't have a room in the house that would be big enough to comfortable fit a Mario of that caliber, so I'm using an approx. 2.5-3in square.  Hopefully, I'll have floor space somewhere to fit him.

Current square count: (as of 6/22/10)

Black:27 (not nearly enough, but i couldn't look at black yarn anymore
Yellow: 2
Red: 0
Brown: 0
Tan: 0
Blue: 0


****EDIT**** 6/23/10
Last night, at the pool hall, my darling boyfriend made a wonderful suggestion so I don't lose interest in such a large project! (I'm add, what can I say, I have a hard time finishing large works...) He said to me (I'm paraphrasing) "why don't you do one section at a time, like make all the black for Mario's tail, and then the brown, red, blue and tan then put the tail together as you get what you need for a row done, so you have a quasi-finished product to keep you motivated!"  What a good idea!  No wonder I love him so!  Alright, so here's the updated color count, and then I'm gonna be off to work on more squares.
Black: 28
Yellow: 4 (of 6, lol, I really don't like yellow)
Red: 9
Blue: 0
Brown: 0
Tan: 0
Skin: 0

Slowly but surely.

**ANOTHER EDIT 6/30/2010**
Ok, so I've scrapped the square count.  I'm just making one row, and sewing it together.  I sewed together the squares I had done into their rows and sewed the resulting rows together.  Here's what I've got so far:


As always, thanks for looking.  C&C welcome and encouraged.

so i thought i pm'd you asking about the excel chart last night, but my outbox has nothing in it.  If you could email me your chart, I'm so ready to start the great granny square off of 2010.
