Happy Birthday to You! Happy Birthday to You! Happy Birthday Dear horsygirl321, Happy Birthday to You!!

And... here's the square!

It's Arches and it was pretty easy. I made a note of a minor correction (very very minor) in the first post of the thread...

Mine is in Simply Soft Brites Blue Mint and Grape and Simply Soft Black.

Wow! I love all of the scarf sections so far! One disadvantage to making all of the sections myself is that I can't tap into all of your talents...

I had my second section finished over a week ago, but never stopped to take a picture. So, here is my (non)traveling scarf Wink

It's a dark brown, and I think I used pattern number 7 in my 300 pattern crochet book.

Here's a blurry pic of the 2 sections:

I'm hoping to work on my 3rd section this weekend! Can't wait to see how all of your scarves progress  Smiley

In keeping with the "It's March already somewhere in the world!" tradition... Heeeeere's March!

It's the Irish Rose pattern (link on first post in thread), and it looks harder than it is (it's much easier than the February Square). I found that it needed corrections, so I made them and posted it as a PDF. I also broke the last several rounds down and made a checklist and added it to the end of the pattern. But, I'm guessing that once you get the hang of it, you won't need it  Wink

Note: The original link to the pattern is no longer working. I'm waiting to hear from the pattern author to make sure it's okay that I've posted it with changes. Hopefully, she doesn't mind!

404  Re: Amazing Crochet Motif Swap in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by craftADDchick on: February 28, 2009 01:24:00 PM
So... I did a practice motif today! I opened up Beyond the Square to a random page and it was #51. It was pretty easy, but I think it needs blocking. Any tips on blocking acrylic?

Well, here is my unofficial first block Wink

It's pattern #003 from my Japanese book of 300 Crochet Stitch patterns (I don't know the actual title).

I used Red Heart Super Saver (because I have a ton), and a K-hook, so it's a bit wider than the official swap scarves. I also made it about 6" tall, so my final scarf will end up being about 6 feet. I'm trying to use gender neutral colors (I might stick with earth tones, or fall colors), because it could end up as a gift... My SIL has a very tall brother, and even though we don't exchange gifts, it would be a good gift for him, maybe...


And, I already did my next section last night and this morning. I have a slight problem- I picked stitch patterns that had pattern repeats that were all factors of 24 (2, 3, 4, 6, 8 ), but the next section ended up with more than 24 stitches at the end. So, I have to figure out how to get the next section going. I may have to make a starting row that skips a few stitches so I have the requisite 24 stitches...

Vanilla Ice > GDs. Sorry craftADDchick.  Tongue

I thought he stopped being Vanilla Ice and went into rock? Apparently not.

No offense taken! Wink I didn't realize he was still around... I'm having 80's flashbacks right now Grin

And, I received from imthecutest81! The picture is horrid, though. I couldn't get one in focus without shadows to save my life. I'll have to try again later. But, here's the blurry one...

I really like the black, white and grey ones, and then there are a couple that are in one of my favorite shades of green (olive). Thanks so much!

I'll be doing the first round of feedback this Sunday, so make sure to check your status on the first page of this thread. PM if there is anything I need to fix. I think it's all up to date, but if someone posted an "I received" in the thread, I may have missed it...

407  Abominable Undies in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by craftADDchick on: February 21, 2009 09:27:41 AM
I made these for the Undies Swap-Favorite Themes. One of the themes my partner listed was cryptozoology. The yeti/abominable snowman falls into this category. And, since my partner and I are about the same age, we both probably watched the Rudolph Christmas movie as kids, featuring Bumble, the Abominable Snowmonster.

The front:

The back (of undies- shirt back is plain):

I used store bought undies sent by my partner. The front of the top is fake fur and felt appliqued on. The bottoms have star patches ironed on (to represent the star that Bumble puts on the tree in the movie) and his name stenciled onto the back with fabric paint (using the freezer paper method). My sister has already requested a shirt of her own Wink

408  TMNT Undies in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by craftADDchick on: February 21, 2009 09:22:35 AM
I made these for the Undies Swap-Favorite Themes. One of the themes my partner wanted was something along the lines of Underoos (the underwear that's fun to wear), and she had listed TMNT as a love.

The front:

The back:

I used store-bought undies sent by my partner. I used iron-on transfers to decorate the bottoms, along with fabric paint to paint the trim/seams/waistband. The shirt was ribbed, and stretchy, so I had trouble figuring out how to work around that while still having the design look good. The mask is stitched in place in the center front only, and has long ties that can be tied in the back. I love them so much, I'm making a slightly different version for myself!

I received an awesome bundle of Granny's Daughters from Knichole! They came yesterday, but I got home too late to even open the package.

She sent some awesome colors, included a bunch of extras, and wove in both ends! Knichole, you are my hero!!

Here's the pile fresh out of the box:

And here's the pile sorted by color:

The colors of the varigateds are fantastic! And there is a red/orange/yellow one with some coordinating ones that exactly match the yarn I have upstairs for the Ravelry version of the 12" Square CAL Wink

Thanks so much Knichole!

410  Re: Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap R4 FOCR R4 Gallery of ♥ LOVE ♥ in The Swap Gallery by craftADDchick on: February 12, 2009 04:31:12 PM
I received today! All the way from Australia! From the lovely cyndiq! Yay!

I received the crocheted panta and matching scrunchie, the wire-wrapped heart pendant necklace, a Caramello Koala, and 2 little packs of Vegemite.

Here's the whole bunch:

And, a close-up of the pendant:

The panta and scrunchie are made from such soft yarn! I wish I could keep them! But, my hair's a bit too short, so I'm going to give them as a birthday present to a young friend of mine. And, cyndiq, if you can point me in the direction of the panta pattern, I can make a matching set for her sister, as well. We celebrate their birthdays at the same party, which is coming soon, I think.

The pendant is all mine, however, and I love it!! I'm wearing it on Saturday, most definitely!

Thanks so much cynidq, and thanks TSM for organizing another fun round Wink
