371  Re: 50+ Wash Cloths-along in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: March 27, 2010 10:14:01 AM
Two more for me!

#20: Round Dishcloth (I think it's the 3rd round one on the list)

I left off the edging round...

#21: Tunisian Simple Stitch

I learned how to do Tunisian crochet for the 2nd round of the Scavenger Hunt Crochet Motif Swap, and this was a bit of practice. I figured I'd might as well make the practice swatch functional! Wink

372  Re: IYP 15 - The Winter Waltz Gallery in The Swap Gallery by craftADDchick on: March 22, 2010 02:22:18 PM
Holy cow! This is such an awesome gallery! I'm a bit intimidated by all of the gorgeous stuff, so I'm kind of glad I stayed away until I (finally) finished up my items. I love every single package that has been received (and while I don't want to play favorites, that quilt is gorgeous, as is the woodland poppet)!

I received my package from koalascout last week, but wouldn't allow myself to open it until I finished her items. Since the contents were not for me, I could resist... until koalascout told me she tucked something in there for me.

So, I was finally able to open the package today and it was jam-packed with stuff (koalascout said some items are missing and will be on the way, but I haven't figured out what they are, yet).

First up, felt play food for my friend's daughter. koalascout's stitching is so perfect!

A bologna, cheese and butter sandwich on honey wheat bread, a bottle of Sunny D, fruit roll-ups and a lunch bag:

Corn on the cob w/removable husk, a peach with slices, Halloween sugar cookies, and Christmas cookies (that I thought were real when I first saw them):

2 cereal bowls with spoons, Honey Smacks cereal, chocolate milk, yogurt w/lid, and a pumpkin treat holder w/fruit snacks:

A fish & chips basket (with fries and potato chips) and a McDonald's apple pie!

And a grocery bag for her to keep it all in:

And then the extras she included for me:

Some Little Odd Balls of yarn:

And an awesome project kit in a chalk-covered Pringles can! She included a bottle cap pincushion, a medicine bottle pincushion and pin holder, a covered tape measure, a needle book, a pair of scissors with a retractable "leash", a chopstick to push stuffing into tight spots, a stitch counter and a set of stitch markers (5 with frogs!):

Thanks so much koalascout! I'm sure my friend's daughter will be delighted with her food and thanks for including such awesome extras for me! Hopefully, your package will be there in a couple of days!

More great colors! And, it's sweet that she included a washcloth Wink

Here are the pics of my awesome yarn. First up, all the way from Australia, lovely little balls of acrylic from kwiltykate! I especially appreciate that she was able to send me some brown (I still have 33 more brown GDs to make, so this should knock a few off of that number Wink ).

And some beautiful stuff from myklia!

From the left: cotton/acrylic, alpaca?, nylon/kid mohair/wool/metallic, acrylic/wool/nylon, merino wool


From the left: acrylic/wool, alpaca?, alpaca?, silk/merino,  handspun sari silk (spun by myklia!)

I absolutely love all of the yarn I received! Thanks so much to all of my partners!

I found my camera! It was in a bag of crafting supplies (I don't know how it ended up in there...). I came across it while digging out something for a swap item I'm working on, so I figured I'd better take a minute to post the pic of my awesome yarn from fantasticmio.

I just love the colors that she sent!

Thanks a bunch, fantasticmio!

375  Re: 2010 12" Squares CAL- March in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: February 28, 2010 07:53:32 AM
It's true!

Just take a look at the swaps I've been in and who organized them.  Grin

As always, happy to enable my fellow crochet addicts Wink

And.... Heeeeerrreee's March!

It's the Easter Day Square by SmoothFox. It's quick and easy, and there is only the most minor of pattern notes (check the first post, although it's so minor you probably won't need to Wink ).

I used a K hook (I think... it's the same hook I've been using for the other squares) and it came out to exactly 12 inches.

376  Re: Scavenger Hunt Crochet Motif Swap 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by craftADDchick on: February 05, 2010 03:38:32 PM
Yay! I get to post first! Grin

I got my fantastic motifs from Ffrogg526 today, and they rock!

First up: Complimentary Colors, Diagonal, Plant or Veggie Themed

The leaf is her own design!

Next: Lacy, Flower (Daffodil)

Love these! And, the daffodil will complement a motif I made for the last round...

Then: Various shades of 1 color (purple)

This is in a tie for my favorite! I especially love the "braided" corners, and it gives me an idea...

And finally: Heritage (Lithuania), Sender's Choice (my initial!)

Both of these are also in a tie for my favorites! They are tapestry crochet (and also her own patterns), I believe. I'm not 100% sure of what the Lithuanian symbol means, but I did find a version of it on a site about the language of Lithuania.

Thank you so much, Ffrogg526! Awesome!!

377  Re: 2010 12" Squares CAL- February in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: January 31, 2010 09:42:38 AM
Here's the February block! It's called Sun Daze (I figured that we all needed a little sunshine in the middle of February Wink ). Only the most minor of corrections (posted in first post of the thread). I haven't woven in the ends, because mine is a bit rippled and may even be a tiny bit too large. So, I may take out the last 2 rounds and leave out Round 11 and finish with a Round 12.

I found it to be a very easy pattern to follow, and I was able to finish it pretty quickly. I can't wait to see the color combos you all use Grin

Whoo-hoo! I received another excellent bundle of GDs today from koalascout! She sent 2 shades of much-needed red, 2 of blue and 2 of pink (both also much needed).She also sent a fabulous bright orange (think safety cone) and yellow. And a speckled red (not quite a variegated, but very festive) and a BONUS batch of variegateds in a red/orange/yellow color. Thanks a bunch, koalascout!

I think I'm at my target number of 90 for pink and yellow now! Yay, yay, yay! Thanks so much to both of my partners, fantasticmio and koalascout, and to OnePinkHippo for helping get closer to my goal!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Grin Grin Kiss Kiss Kiss

379  Re: 2010 200 Crochet Blocks CAL in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: January 18, 2010 01:57:45 PM
I was able to upload my photo, so here it is Wink I used a size E hook and Caron Simply Soft Brites. I also left off the last round, so mine only came out to 4 1/2" (which is great!). I almost left off the last round of the purple, but decided that it would make the "crennelations" more prominent Smiley

It looks a little cock-eyed in the picture, but it's square in real life Wink

And, I was able to flag down a plow guy and he cleared out my parking spot on the street for a mere $10... saved me at least an hour of work and saved my back days of agony Grin

Here's my Willow block! I only did the first 6 rounds, and used an E hook, so it came out on the smaller side, which is good. The center is Vanna's Choice, the next color is Red Heart SS, and the last color is some brand I got at Michael's that I'd never heard of before. I ordinarily wouldn't choose a variegated yarn, but it was sitting right beside the rust-colored Vanna's Choice and it matched so well, I had to use it. Then, I dug through the bag of blue yarn I had to find a matching shade...

This is destined for my motif blanket! I even wove in the ends already Wink

And, I realized that for the blocks that aren't suitable for my motif blanket, I can always use cotton yarn and make them into washcloths Grin

I just printed out the pattern for the Castle's End Square, and I may tackle that tomorrow  Smiley
