Hopefully the corners won't curve so much once it's finished.  Undecided

why not? makes it look like a starfish... oops, it's called a Sea Star now, 'cause it's not a fish.  Undecided

There are lots of things that are called common names of things that they aren't.  So stick with Starfish!!!  If you want, anyhow.  There is supposedly a grammatical rule about the usage, where they are supposed to be separate if it is really a fish, and together if it isn't.  I have never found this rule, but my inverts instructor has a thing for grammer, so I tend to believe it.  Who knows!?

I think the corners happen like that when you are skipping a stitch on accident, right after the shell make sure there isn't a stitch hiding under there!

No, I promise you I'm not missing a stitch. Maybe I should be skipping that stitch after the shell instead. I will try it with the next color (green) and get back to you. Smiley

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

hmm, well, maybe after you give it some tugs it will straighten out!  It is cute regardless.  I mean come on a star blanket!  I have made 2, one I am using all the time, even though it is supposed to be a present for my neice.  Guess I need to go buy some more yarn!!!

I think I am going to try crocheting this up over the next couple of months for a friend who is expecting. My crochet skills are a wee bit out of practice but I am going to need something to keep me busy by my fireplace in my new pad this winter.

Thanks MishyMishy for that dynamite Flickr tut. Holy heck that is comprehensive.

I love looking at the different effects the colours produce...I think I am going to go with bold rainbow colours.

I have been looking at this blanket for awhile now.  I printed the pattern months ago.  I have three friends who are expecting so I thought I would try this one.  I started it this morning and am on row 7.  It seems to workup pretty quickly as long as I don't get bored.  I am using Caron Simply soft in Blue mint and Limelight.  I wasn't too sure about the color combo, but I think I like it.  I will post pictures a little farther down the road.  By the way, I read through the whole post!  Thank you so much for all of your tips and help.  This site rocks!

Okay so all my other projects that I have been working on have been turning into mud... so I picked this back up again! I started on it about 4 months ago and tossed it aside (don't remember why though). I am using Caron's natura in light pink, white and lavendar. A friend of mine is having a baby in a few months so I have to get this finished anyway! Hopefully I can get some picks up by the end of the week.
