For some reason when Jo-ann's was closing I bought a whole bunch because it was on sale....never really thought about having to USE it!  Grin

LOL! I have a huge bag sitting here... and for pretty much the same reason... $1.00 a skein! I'll take a dozen! Now to find the perfect project Wink

I have mine done, but not sure when I will send yet... We are without power, and the post office is closed.  We finally got power at work, but still none at home.  Bad news is that they are saying some will not have power for a month!  Crossing my fingers that we are not that lucky house!

Having just gone through my own ice storm nightmare, I'm hoping that you'll have power and be back at home soon!

And, I still haven't woven in any ends... I have to go and whip up a pair of baby shoes for Saturday... and a little baby quilt... Sunday, I hope to start the weaving in of ends!

No but, I didn't do the 2008 one. I only joined craftster recently .
It doesn't matter! Do whatever squares please you from 08 if you want but you don't even have to look at the thread. Smiley

I never finished the 08 one and everyone was ok with me jumping back in this round becasue the only person you are accountable to is yourself.  We encourage each other but it's not like we'll scold you if you don't get the square done. Smiley

I'm still working my way through the 2007 one (almost done with the Easy squares, and then I'll start on the Experienced ones) and the 2008 one (I'm getting ready to start August).

And, truth be told, the main reason I'm "organizing" this round is so I can make sure to keep up Wink

I'm hoping to have my '08 squares finished soon, so I can give it as a gift while it's still cold. My '07 squares will take longer, but then I'll have 24 squares for a bigger blanket!

So, take it from me, it's never too late, and there's no rush to finish!

And... it's almost February!

This sounds really fun! Could there be a question about novelty thread? I know fun fur has been mentioned. I think it would be really cute to add a strand of fun fur or my personal fave, boa, to a few rounds of a motif.

I can put a question in there, but I'm not sure if I can match partners based on the answer to it. I can try, but I allergies and sending out of country tend to suck up a lot of the partner options...

After this weekend, I'm going to start putting together the questionnaire, so keep on giving me input Wink

Honestly, I shouldn't spend as much as I do... Tongue I'm pretty sure I'll be using stash yarn for this, as well.

And, the best thing about the internet is that there are so many free patterns available. And, the idea of using the center of a square pattern is an awesome one! There's also the library- mine is awesome about getting books for me (even books that they have, but are checked out, they'll get from another library in the system if they can, which really surprises me).

It's a bit trickier in the beginning. It gets easier, though. If you just follow the pattern bit by bit, and don't try to out-think it, it really does work out well

*is scared* I can't wait to see it and try it out  Cheesy

Don't be too scared! It was really only one tiny thing that I didn't quite get (I'll make a note of it in the post and maybe a more experienced crocheter can clarify it), so I winged it and it looks fine. It really is a follow-stitch-by-stitch pattern in the beginning. After Round 7, it's easy! And Round 7 isn't hard, you just have to pay attention Wink

It really does come in handy! I even saw the boyfriend using it today Smiley

The pocket shape is indeed a trapezoid. I'm going to make another of these tomorrow hopefully so I will put together a tute.

As for the Timtex, I've never actually seen it before but I think it's about the same weight as Pellon 70, maybe even a little stiffer. You would need a piece 14" x 20" to duplicate my measurements, and the Pellon is exactly 20 inches wide! (Did this have anything to do with my size choice? Maybe...it also helped that the linen was 40"!) If you're not sure about the Timtex, try Amy Butler's website (amybutlerdesign.com). She redid some of her patterns to include substitutions for Timtex when it became unavailable, so she might have some tips there.

Thanks for that info! I bought the Timtex to make reversible fabric bowls, but had a lot of trouble with my machine and the satin stitch. So, if it's wide enough, I have plenty. If it isn't now, I know where else to look. Thanks again Wink

I'm still trying to figure out what to add to my item to make it worthy (it's a decorated tin of chocolates). Any suggestions?
What about a set of note-cards? Or a small amigurumi? Would either of those work with the chocolates?

What about an amigurumi chocolate with a milk chocolate squiggle on top?  The notecards sound cute too.

Oooh! That's an idea... And, I may have some rubber stamps that look like chocolates... I could do a theme... Off to seek out amigurumi chocolate inspiration...

ETA: I found something that I might actually be able to pull off in time...
