Can anyone advise what "worsted weight" yarn is, and what sort of yarn do people recommend (I am a Brit by the way)?

Worsted weight yarn is 4 ply yarn and that's what I would use (according to some web sites, it's the best weight for afghans.)

If you use anything with fewer strands, the squares will be smaller and lighter in weight.

What a neat belt idea - I've never seen anything like it!

Wow, that's the easy square?  Looks totally different with all those colors.  I really like it.  If you decide to make it bigger, just add a few more dark rows until it's the right size.

I decided that since others are having a problem with the gauge on the 'easy' square, I better try it and see what I could come up with.  According to my conversion charts, an I hook is 5.5 mm - unfortunately I lost my hook that size and since I tend to crochet rather tight, I decided to try a 6.00 hook.  Well, by round 5 I could already tell that my square was going to be way too large so I ripped it all out and started over.  I decided to try a 5.00 hook and crochet less tight and I now have a 12" square.

It seems to me that a lot depends on your tension.

Hopefully not all squares will give us this much difficulty!  I think, for the next squares I pick, I'm going to try them ahead to see what works for me and then mention that along with the patterns when I post them.

Well, I didn't make posting this before the end of the month but at least I had the satisfaction of knowing it was done by then.

I chose not to go with fall colors because, as I said last month, I needed more color in my quilt!



Now, on to tackle October's square.

So far, I have received two wonderful packages during this swap.

This first, from Brihene, included 2 dishclothes (only 1 is pictured because the other was put to immediate use), 3 pens and some very yummy candy.



and the other was from BklynGal.  She sent 3 crochet squares (all lovely), 3 pieces of material and more yummy candy!



Thank you ladies for helping to make my birthday special!

Here's my coffee cup from Pimpernel Smith. It's perfect because I was just told by another teacher that I'd look older (and the kids would take me more seriously) if I started carrying around a coffee cup.  Roll Eyes

I was going to say - Older?? you don't look much older than my sons.  Then I checked your profile and realized you aren't much older!

There is a mistake in the address.  Here's the correct one:

Quote from: Amethyst
I made the star/flower one, and started over once because it was all wavy. Now I've done it again and it lays flat. I love it, but when I measured, it was only 9.5", not 12".

All the times I made mine, they came out to 12" when I used the right hook.  If you can't find the right hook, try crocheting looser.
