myklia -- i sometimes find that different hooks (either brands or styles) respond to the yarn better than others. ya know what i mean how some of the hooks are "pointy" and some are "flat", maybe if you have another hook of the same size you could try that, the yarn may not split so much.

I have the same problem with Simply Soft, but I try to work around it because I love it! I don't use if for amigurumi (I use Red Heart), but I love it for granny squares!

And, the send out date on my big swap that I was way behind on just got extended. So, I'll be filling out my questionnaire in a bit!

Wow! Those star afghans are fantastic! I just hope that you get to share the one you made for your hubby Wink

I love the placemats, too! I can't imaging making a dozen though (crafting ADD here...). But, I love the simple look of them, and the variety of fabrics on the strip. I might have to make a set (a small set Wink  ) like them for my dining room.

The organizers are such a neat idea! I could probably use one, since things have a habit of disappearing (anyone seen my checkbook?) around here.

Thanks so much for extending the deadline. Today was my first day back at school with kids, and even though I have a light class load, I was walking all over the building and I am wiped out! So now, I can crash early tonight and not feel excessively guilty. I did get one set of items done and I got my partner's item in the mail. And, yesterday, mine wasn't finished. But today, I decided to make the lining of my pillowcase lunch bag removable so that I could wash it easier. So now, I don't have to sew it in, and I consider it finished!

I still have Poppets to work on- a bigger task than I realized, but now I can do it in slightly smaller chunks. Whew! Tanza, I'm sorry it'll be later, but it will be better as a result!

come on craftADDchick i don't generally pay attention to my gauge either when crafting for myself.   BUT it's EASY here, just make one with the hook you will think is best, generally G or H, and if it's too big make a new one with a size down or the opposite! and they only take a few minutes literally so you aren't wasting a lot of time making swatches to test your gauge.
It should really only take you a max of about 2 minutes to do each daughter.  Therefore, 80 takes about 160 minutes if you were working straight through.  Even if you don't, and say it takes you 200 minutes...  then to finish by the 13th you only have to make about 4-5 a day or set aside about 10 minutes a day.  See, very easy to do!  Come on, you know you want to!  Grin

Hee-hee! I do really want to... I am just way behind on a swap that should be in the mail tomorrow. Once I get that finished, I'll probably sign up (and I'll probably work out my gauge issues between now and then Wink ). I have a bunch of yarn from the Odd Yarn Ball swap that would be perfect for this. I also figured that I'd make myself a set while I was at it, that way I'd have an extra 40... and that means it's still only 4 per day...

So, I should be signed up by the end of next weekend (just don't close early!).

Okay, I swore that I wasn't going to sign up for any more swaps. But, I do have a bunch of small amounts of yarn that are just begging to be used. This sounds easy enough, but I'm really worried about how long it will take me. I think I need to look at a calendar and figure out how many I will need to make each night in order to finish and send by the 13th...

If I need to make 80 (40 to 2 people is where it stands now, right?), and I have 30 days (there will be some days I can't make any), then that is less than 3 per day. I can manage that!

But I still need to think about it... I'm also worried about getting the correct gauge, since I have issues with that...

Just as a hint, my husband - who looked at me as if I had grown something very strange on my head when I told him I was making a pop-tab purse - asked if I wasn't afraid someone would steal my purse just for the purse....

On my honor, I promise to guard it very carefully...

Love the wallet, notebook and cellphone charm set. Very pretty!

And, there is the owl (and cute turtle) I so adore. I'll be making one for myself soon...
