Wow! There are so many great inchies on here! I just love looking at them all! I have 2 things to work on tonight, but sadly, neither is inchies. But, that's okay because I'm gathering more stuff to make them with- materials, ideas, techniques- so hopefully I'll be able to crank them out when I finally sit down to it Wink

Here are the beauties that I received from edelC! I can't pick favorite, but the chicken one that says "MOM" cracks me up Wink I love the background colors on all of them.

My inchies look so great all together! I was perusing the frames the other day, and I can't wait to frame them!

Thanks, edelC!

Here are the motifs I made for myself as I was making them for MareMare and fantasticmio. They're pretty much the same as those that I made for MareMare (and some of the ones that I made for fantasticmio).

I think these last 2 are my favorites! I'll be laying them all out this week to see how I should arrange them for my blanket. Then, I'll start crocheting them together!

And, I'll be leaving feedback in just a jiffy. If it doesn't appear in your profile in about an hour, let me know...

Thanks everyone for such a great swap! I can hardly wait for the next round Wink

I received 3 fantastic sets- they have inspired me to try to be a bit more creative with my inchies Wink

From loves2experiment:

I love the hole punch one, and was thinking of something like this the other day... I just bought a new fancy punch and may have to try it (imitation is a sincere form of flattery, after all Wink ).

From Smmarrt:

I think the bird one is my favorite!

From TerraBella01:

I love the frog, and the one that looks like a coral branch. Science-y! Wink

Thanks so much! I can't wait to get started on mine!

Excellent skull motifs! And, the black one with the variegated spiral is cool looking! And, myklia, I love the giant flower... you may be hearing from me soon, asking how to make it Wink

And, since I'm making no progress on cleaning my house for tomorrow, I may as well take a bit more procrastination time and post the pics of my gorgeous motifs from MareMare. They are so soft, and she used colors that I absolutely love!

I really, really like the yarn used on the puffy square (the photo doesn't show how subtle the highlights are), and I love the dimensional center on the other one.

The pink flower also has a dimensional center (which didn't photograph well) and I love the color combo. And the green and grey one (a color combo that is unexpectedly awesome) is such a neat looking pattern- like a granny square, but cooler Wink

The green yarn on the four-petaled one has some colored speckles in it and it's another yarn favorite. And, I really love the spiral motif on the other one.

I have vacation in a week, and I'm going to spend some time arranging my motifs (from fantasticmio and MareMare, plus the ones I made for myself) and then I'll figure out how to crochet them together. If it doesn't end up quite as big as I'd like, I can always add more motifs around the edges as I see fit. I'm pretty excited because it could end up being my first ever completed blanket/throw!

Thanks so much to my partners for making me such superb motifs! Now, I'm feeling a bit of performance anxiety for the ones that I sent...

I got a set of "fantastic" motifs today from fantasticmio!

They'll give my planned throw some definition and weight (well... most of them, anyway Wink ). I love them!

Here they are in all of their glory!

And, the most amazing one of all:

It's only a half an inch big!!! I need to figure out how to turn it into a pendant. I can't imagine making something so tiny and so perfect! I don't know if the picture does it justice...

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!

449  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...
