6903  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: GRANNIES DAUGHTERS CROCHET SWAP R1 (CLOSED) Sendout-10/13/08 on: September 01, 2008 07:16:20 PM
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...

This month's square looks a bit more challenging! But, hopefully by the time I finish July and August, I'll be ready for it Wink

Success! The undies for my partner came out almost exactly like I had envisioned, so I'm pretty psyched. They are drying now, and I should be able to pack them up tomorrow for shipping on Tuesday. Whoo-hoo!!!

CraftADDchick - your pop-tab purse is packed and ready to go to the post office when it opens back up on Tuesday - I am finishing 'mine' up today and expect the carpal tunnel effect to go away in about a week - don't know how long I will have the uber-calluses on the thumb and forefinger tho Smiley 

Ouch! Sorry you're injured! But, I appreciate the sacrifice in the name of crafting Wink I mentioned the bag to my sister, and she seems very interested, so I may have to start collecting tabs after all Tongue But, she definitely is not getting mine Cheesy
