I'm so glad I finally got started!  Cheesy

So am I!  I don't know about the rest of you but I was getting tired of all these empty promises that you were actually going to start   Grin   Tongue   Grin

Ah, yes! I have been feeling  guilty that I've had to keep putting it off. So, I blew off working on a swap item and worked on this instead! Wink

I was going to skip around, too, but I figured that I needed to have some order to it. I have 6 rounds of the October easy square done, and I've figured out the pattern so I don't have to read it as I go (whew!). My only problem is going to be that I'll have to add on rounds to make it to the 12" size. As much as I try, I still crochet too tight! And, I couldn't find a larger hook, so I just went with it.

If I have time to crochet tomorrow night, I might get it finished. If not, then probably Saturday and I'll post a pic on Sunday.

I'm so glad I finally got started!  Cheesy

I printed out the October easy square directions and I have a question: What does it mean to dc "around" hdc? I know what dc and hdc are, I just don't get the "around" part. Does that mean don't crochet "into" it (like into the loops at the top of the hdc), but kind of "over/under" it?

Read back at the end of page 9 and beginning of page 10 - this exact question is answered there.

Oh, I'm too lazy for that! Wink Actually, I just decided to start it and I think I have it. It does make sense when I actually have the hook in hand. I just did the first 2 rounds and it looks like it might be right.

Thanks for the speedy reply!

Actually, now that I'm on here, I guess I'll go back and check... Grin

ETA: Okay, I went back and checked, and I think I'm doing it right...Thanks again Homerof2 for pointing me in the right direction! Now, I'd best get backed to it before I get distracted Wink

Inspiring!

I really am trying to get started! I printed out the October easy square directions and I have a question: What does it mean to dc "around" hdc? I know what dc and hdc are, I just don't get the "around" part. Does that mean don't crochet "into" it (like into the loops at the top of the hdc), but kind of "over/under" it?

Hmmmm...might make more sense if I attempt it. I have a couple of swap items to work on, but maybe I'll just make one, and then I can take a crack at this.
7305  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Owl Swap Round 4. Signups April 12-May 2. Send-outs June 10! SIGNUPS CLOSED! on: May 24, 2007 03:32:58 PM
I just popped out to the store to pick something up for the small items. And then I think one of them turned into a medium item. So, an item I thought might be medium is being "demoted" to small. And then I'm making a back-up item or two in case my large item just doesn't work out...

Off to turn some supplies into actual items!  Wink

Everyone is getting such great stuff!

coral- I love the needle roll! I looked for some neat coffee/tea fabric and couldn't find anything.

razorsharp- The items that you sent to yarn_tart are fantastic! The embroidery on the t-shirt is great, and the cookies sound yummy! And, I also like the color of the yarn- I wouldn't have thought of berries.

lapoli- I love your tea kit! What a neat idea and such a cool way to carry your tea around!

sammimag- I like your apron and I love how you instantly decided to use it to carry yarn around! And that bookmark is lovely!

And aedara, that flowering teapot and tea is amazing. My cousin's bridal shower is next month and she is a tea drinker. I might have to get one of these for her (registry list? what registry list?)...and maybe one for me...and one for my sister-in-law for Christmas...
7307  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Crocheted Zipper Pouch on: May 24, 2007 01:13:51 PM
Thanks for the compliments! The pattern for the crochet was in symbols, and it was pretty easy once you got going. I even learned a new technique/stitch as I was going along (you can't really tell in the pic, but there are some "crossed" double crochet stitches)- seeing it charted out in symbols made it easier to understand. I could have made it bigger, but I was just trying it out so I made it exactly the size of the symbol chart in the book. It's definitely a pattern that I'll want to use on something else, I'm just not sure what that will be!

I have to echo sammimag- I love all of the green items that you received, foob! I love how everything coordinates! And, I love the hot chocolate/spa theme basket that you sent to bronzfrog. Just a bit jealous...(although I'm sure that the package I get will be just as great!)

7309  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocheted Zipper Pouch on: May 23, 2007 05:23:24 PM
A few months ago, I made this sample piece (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=146877.msg1507923;topicseen#msg1507923) from a Japanese crochet book.

I finally got around to making something with it! I picked up some fat quarters and a zipper and followed the tutorial for a lined zipper pouch (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22875.0). I tried out something new with the zipper (still needs work), but overall, I'm pretty happy with it. Which is good, since it's a gift. I probably should have blocked it first, since it bows on the sides...lesson learned.

The crocheted piece is just on the front- I stitched it on to the fabric...

razorsharp- You got some great stuff! And bummer about the coffee crisp bar- I love those and we can't get them here. I'd just eat the crushed remains...  Cheesy

I love the tea dyed yarn. I really want to try some yarn dyeing, and I never thought of using tea! And I love the mug- it looks like it would be nice to wrap your hands around (my definition of the perfect mug: I can wrap my hands around it and they will be warm, but not burning). And, I like how she decorated the flower pot!
