I sent in my questionnaire today...

Well, I need SOMEthing to help tie all of the stuff I got from the Motif swap together, after all!

What a good idea... and I bet you'll crochet a million of them Wink

I'm starting on Thursday, I hope. This is the week of meetings (2 in the evening and 2 in the early morning), so I have long days (left at 7:30 am today, got home at 8 pm). Can't think about starting until Thursday at the earliest.

I started on this one yesterday and completed 37.  Not to shabby.  I wove the beginning tails in and left the ending tails so I can do whatever my partners prefer with them.  Since I've never used Granny's Daughters before I'm not really sure what my preference should be.  Guess the project will determine what should have been done with tails.

*sigh* I caved. Roll Eyes

You can make an afghan, too lazy to find a link to an example of one.  That is what I was going to do, but I think  I have a number of projects I wouldn't mind incorporating the daughters into, like a scarf, or a motif curtain. Wink

Congratulations on learning to crochet. Cheesy

Sent in my info and looks like I'm in! I'm definitely going to start working on these later tonight. I've never made any before, but they look like they're going to be fun (and quick!) to do.

Yup! As myklia said, you can make an afghan (that's my goal). But, if you find that to be too intimidating, you could also make a scarf, or a shawl, or a pillow cover. You could stitch them onto the edge of an existing item, like a blanket, tablecloth, curtains. They could even look neat stitched to the hem of a plain sweater!

I was thinking of maybe making a totebag, if I don't go the afghan route.

Quick question: What yarn are you supposed to be using? Is it only worsted weight or should you use different kinds as well?

All motifs MUST be made in 4-ply worsted weight yarn, or if you're in the UK the yarn equivalent will be 10-ply aran.  Please be sure to check your gauge to make sure your motifs are the correct size.  We wouldn't want to receive some motifs that are 1 1/2" and some that are 2 1/4". Your motifs should measure 1 1/2" to 1 3/4".  Size is important!!!   REMEMBER:  It only takes a few minutes to make one granny’s daughter. If you get started when you sign up, you’ll have the bulk of the work done by the time partners are assigned  Wink

Hopefully this helps Cheesy
