7771  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: 2008 12" Squares ~ FEB on: February 13, 2008 06:18:55 PM
mochaxlight- aside from the crocheting into the chain bit (like the color combo, by the way!), how hard was that square? It's one of my favorites of the "experienced" squares from last year, but I haven't made it to the "experienced" level yet Wink Once I finish the easy ones...around September Tongue
It's experienced? I found it really easy. Plus the pattern has pictures. I think the most difficult thing is getting all the rings to look right. But it was fun. Go for it!  Cheesy


Yep! I just double checked. But, now I'm thinking that I could try it sooner...but I'll need to pick up some more yarn if I'm going to be stepping into "experienced" territory Wink

Thanks for the encouragement!

I have added to my list of potential items to make. Because I am such a random crafter, I'll be doing little bits all through next week. I have 2 other swaps to send out next week, too (Dang it! No matter how hard I try to avoid that, it always happens Tongue ). The tin will need to be made in stages, so that's what I'll be doing in between everything else. But, it will be sent by next Friday! And, in my head, it looks awesome Wink

Dotsamantha- Nice squares! I love the blue and grey combination, too (my 07 Easy Squares are blue and grey, but different shades).

Kookaloo_Starr- You are just crankin out those February squares! And, I cant believe that you made an entire square today! I must crochet wayyyy slower than most Wink

the_trademarks- Such bold colors! If you stick with such a fantastic color scheme, that afghan is going to rock when its finished!

I'm planning on going through the gallery/idea board/and official thread and making a recommended reading list. Would anyone be interested in this?
 

Great idea! I wrote a few down, but more would be great!

I have a birthday party on Saturday and I need to make their gifts...I'm home with a snow day and am seriously procrastinating because I know I have to go out and shovel before I do anything else...

CraftADDchick.....is right we almost need a thread of all tutorial and info for the poppet.  QUICK reference so to speak.



I was thinking of adding a "Tips & Tricks" page to the Poppet website. I can envision much copy & paste activity happening over vacation Wink

I'm not mochaxlight, but I did do the waldo's puzzle, and it's really not hard at all.  This month's square was, IMO, more difficult.

Hmmmm...maybe I'll have to give it a go, then...

Thanks, Sorcha!

craftADDchick, yours  turned out great  Smiley


Couldn't have done it without your help and encouragement Wink

I haven't checked this post for a few days and I've missed so much information and so many new Poppets! Snow day today, so I have a chance to catch up...

teachingjonah- Junebug Jewel is adorable, and I love her little crocheted dress!

dammitall- I love the Psychedelic Chicken Man! I love how his "wattle" looks like a chicken version of a soul patch Wink

RoaneFaery- I love the fabric you used! I never would have picked up something like that for a Poppet, but now, the next time I hit the fabric store, I really need to keep my eyes open to the possibilites...

MonkeyThumb- I love your newest Poppet and I love the fabric you used for her clothes and how well it matches her hair. Beautiful!

panda- Chocolate Kisses is adorable! Her little heart mouth is just so sweet!

And, I love the felt eyes and the ideas for the pirate Poppet. I have a friend who is crazy about Johnny Depp and a Jack Sparrow Poppet would be so fun to make for her (and she'd probably pass it on to her grand-daughter). All of the links to supplies and tutorials are fantastic!

Looks like I'll be very busy updating the Poppet website next week! I'll have to borrow a longer ethernet cable from work so I can use my other laptop at the table instead of sitting on the living room floor Wink

And, GumInMyHair, your squares look awesome all together! I really like the February square. Are you using RedHeart? I think I have a bit of that variegated and the green (and the tan...) around here somewhere. They look nice together!
