401  Re: ACTIVE: Granny-A-Day for JUNE - 6/1/10-6/30/10 in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: June 12, 2010 10:12:03 AM
Here are my squares!

The colors don't show very well (at least in the thumbnails), but they are brown, pink, purple and dark green. As I was taking the pictures, I noticed that the green ones were a smidgen smaller than the rest, but they are going to be the ones along the top edge, so I don't think it'll be a big deal.

Off to start the laundry (and maybe I'll even run the dishwasher, too- then I'll really be multi-tasking Wink ) and weave in tails!

Here are my Gothic Square and Briar Rose blocks! I only did the center portion of the Briar Rose because I thought it'd look better in my motif blanket. Now, I just have to get the book from the library and do May (and June).

Here's the June block! It's Big June Square and it makes use of bpdc to give it a neat texture.

There are a couple of pattern corrections, and if you're like me and need to see the whole pattern written out, I've added some directions for Rounds 8-12. I didn't need to do Round 12, but I'm using a K hook, which is bigger than the pattern calls for.

I've got 3 more made plus a dish scrubbie! I made them for the dishalicious dishcloth swap.

This is the Zipper Square:

This is the Chain Stitch Facecloth:

This is my own pattern based on the Fibonacci Sequence. It's basically just rows of single crochet in a pattern of 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13.

And then I made a tulle dish scrubbie, which doesn't count towards my total...

So now, my total is 24! Yay!

I received from Vdbonnett! And they are awesome! I definitely can't pick a favorite, that's for sure!

This first one has such a great stitch pattern; if I made a larger version, it'd make a great blanket.

The next one has a lovely nubby texture that doesn't show well in the photo, and because of the variegated yarn, it has a cool design in it, too! Grin

And finally, one that is almost too lovely to use! It looks like a flower!

Thanks, Victoria! And thanks again, Sejimara, for organizing!

PS Vdbonnett included the pattern links in her note, but I can't find it in my pile of mail. Once I dig it out tomorrow night, I'll post the info for anyone who is interested Wink

koalascout, that's a great array of colors! You've got some especially nice variegateds in there. I'm thinking my next batch of GDs will have to be a variegated mish-mash...

myklia, I like how you've done the next round. It sets off the GD center nicely!

And, here are my awesome GDs from MiLady! They managed to escape the clutches of the volcano and arrived rather quickly. And, she sent me some Kinder Surprise eggs (and some Cadbury chocolates, too), which I totally love, but can't get here in the US. So, extra thanks for those!

Most of the solids will end up in my GD blanket, while the rest will end up in the scarf. My joining of the GDS project is slowly moving up the to-do list Wink

Thanks a bunch, MiLady, and thanks again, myklia, for organizing!

407  Re: ACTIVE: Granny-A-Day Crochet-Along MAY! in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: May 02, 2010 04:36:12 PM
Here are my May 1st & 2nd squares! I'm going to make an Inga bag with them. They're made with brown Lion Brand cotton and I used an E hook (which is in the picture). I don't think my bag will be very big, but I didn't feel like doing 7 rounds. And, I made them with one color because I didn't want to weave in extra ends. So, I guess I should dub this the Lazy Inga Bag Wink

Happy (early) May Day! I'll be out of town, so I'm posting the square tonight. It's Eternal Braid by Chris Simon. It has one unusual bit, but it isn't difficult and it's clearly explained. There's a minor pattern correction (see first post), but I think everything else is good (any mistakes I made were due to crocheting while tired and/or watching TV).

I love the center of this motif!

409  Re: ACTIVE: Granny-A-Day crochet-along for April - start 04/01/10 in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: April 18, 2010 03:22:18 PM
I've got pictures! Finally! I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner... The pictures are a bit dark, but they're all I have.

So, here's the "afghan" in all of it's glory before...

Lovely, no? No... definitely, no...

And here is where it is falling apart...

And here is the beginning of the pile of squares that have been cut out, alongside the pile of the black yarn that I cut them out of...

There is black fuzz everywhere!

I'll post a few more progress pictures (glued ends, added rounds) later...

Since I've had enough March showers (and torrential, flooding rains) to last me for the entire month of April, I thought I'd bring May's flowers in early!

Here's Tiptoe Through the Tulips, and I have to admit, I was so focused on checking the pattern that I didn't even realize that I was making little tulips in my block. In my defense, it didn't help that my leaf/stem row was in white instead of green Wink

The picture isn't the greatest, but it was 9 PM when I took it. If the sun really does come out tomorrow, I'll try to take a better photo.

Super minor correction listed in first post...
