With all the whining that I've been doing about this calendar, I figured I should at least try one of the patterns. This one was on the January 8 page.

http://farm1.static.flickr.com/147/351870940_05a57c5189.jpg?v=0

It's made with mostly acrylics, a little cotton, and the white is baby acrylic. It's wrapped around my neck once, so it's not that long. I fastened it with a brooch for the pictures, but it's heavy enough that it will stay without it. I also didn't have the right hook sizes, I used a 6mm and a 7mm. It still works as long as you have a bigger hook for the chain. (the pattern calls for an 11.5mm and a 16mm) I did an extra 30 chains or so to compensate.

I wasn't sure if I would like it at first and deemed it an experiment, but once I finished it and had my photo shoot, I really liked it.

You did a great job.  Was there something you didn't like about the calendar?

Thanks.  Grin

I don't like a lot of the patterns. I know you can't please everyone with every pattern, but I haven't found much that I personally like. I also noticed that most of the pictures aren't that great, but I guess they were amateur?

Thats cute.  A crochet calander sounds like a lot of fun.  and even if you don't like the patterns then maybe someone else might and you would make it for them.

Too bad you didn't find much to find your taste.  I still think that scarf works for you.  You''ll know to skip the calendar next year.  Enjoy your new scarf.
