Hmmmm...I can't knit, so I wonder if this would work with crochet? Could I crochet a swatch, unravel, measure and dye? I still have to work it out in my brain exactly how you did it (I need to go back and read more carefully), but I'd like to try it!

Simple, cute and functional! And, I love the colors that you chose! Nicely done!

But she won't use it at the grocery store-- I think she's embarrassed  Embarrassed She says she'll use it at the farmer's market though, where everyone uses reusable grocery bags. That is, if she hasn't lost it...

I sort of want to tell her that it's not about being ashamed, it's about saving the environment. But she's not the woman to be telling that to.


My mom said she wanted one, too. But, she doesn't do much of the shopping, and I don't think my step-dad would use it. But, I could be surprised...Maybe if I make it in a neutral, "manly" fabric he'll be more inclined to use it...

After crocheting 2 dischloths on a recent car trip, I wish I had seen this sooner- I could have made some very cool dishcloths! Of course, I did make a couple that were kind of nice (one was a practice piece of tapestry crochet- I put a seahorse in the middle, and then edged it with rounds of double crochet; the other was done in half-double crochet and  on every third row, I think, I did 2 hdc, ch (skipping a stitch), 2 hdc across the row).

I'll have to join in...I have a huge pile of cotton yarn that is destined for dishcloths! Of course, with school starting soon, I can pretty much say that I won't get 50 done by '08, but I might be able to get a few done!

Excellent idea! And, since I am being extra frugal this Christmas, this will make a perfect "Yankee Swap" gift, especially if I tuck in some "Two Buck Chuck" wine from Trader Joe's (which is actually three bucks out my way, but still a good deal on a decent wine).

Thanks so much for sharing!
7196  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Owl Swap Round 4 Gallery! on: August 10, 2007 07:41:10 PM
I was lucky enough to snag Queen of the Savages as a second partner in this swap after her original partner disappeared. And, when you see all of the glorious owl goodness that i received, you'll understand why. So, pardon the glut of pictures, but I just had to show it all off...

First...a bulletin board decorated with owl sketches, fabric covered thumb tacks and a series large charms that say " I heart owls."


Close-ups of the thumb tacks and the charms:


Two sets of notecards- one made with a hand-carved stamp on hand-painted paper, and the other made with fabric pieces:


A collaged note-pad (hard to see but, trust me, it is way cool)


Amazingly awesome hand-painted fabric covered buttons! I could never ever do this! And one of the owls is winking! How cute is that?!


And, a zippered pouch that has an incredible embroidered owl on it. She did it free-hand on the sewing machine! Wow! And, inside, a necklace with a fabulous shrink plastic owl pendant, and a bonus skull & scissors pendant!



Thanks a TON, Queen of the Savages!!!

I vote for an extention, my roll of film was taken by the police today.

There must be a very interesting story in this one little sentence...

Wow! I can't believe our time is almost up! Al looks like he is having loads and loads of adventures. I just got back from a trip with Kimi and the planned photo ops that I had just didn't pan out, unfortunately. I did manage to get a few pics, but not what I had hoped. I have one or two more places to take her, and then I really must get started on the scrapbook!!

Quote from: Horse Power
So how did you do it ~ with plain single crochet? Did you increase and decrease so you'd get the same number of stitches on each side?

I made one round of double crochet.  I figured out how many stitches would fit evenly along one side and then I made that many on all sides.  On some squares I had to skip stitches to get the right number and on some I had to make 2 dc in one stitch.

Thanks for this bit of info! As I was finishing up a square yesterday (December easy...I was on a very long ride from Washington DC and I finished about an hour before I got home), I realized that my stitch counts would vary on my edges. This will help tremendously once I finally finish! I'll be starting my January easy tonight, I think.
