Hope everyone is having fun hookin' it up! I was wondering if I could get a clarification on the send date. I thought there was an extension on it b/c of pairings, but I am not sure if that is reflected in the info or not. Just want to make sure I have the right date on my calendar.

If it is actually the 30th, is there any chance it could be moved to the 31st? The 30th (Mon) is memorial day and the post offices are closed in the U.S. so that could be tricky!

I was also wondering about the send date.  Smiley 10 squares done!

Also, don't sweat it, BabyCakes! We totally understand having computer problems.  Kiss

Aww silver I hope your little one gets better soon =(

Also, I'm pretty sure there has been an extension even though it isn't reflected in the info.

I apologize for ...everything. I got kicked out of another computer lab in the middle of sending Q's to everyone. I think I now have them all sent. I will have unlimited computer access tomorrow! Cheesy YAY! I'll be at my mom's so I should be able to answer any questions that I haven't. Also I am extending the sendouts a week later if that is olay with everyone.


thanks!

Hello!


I had that problem too, my squares were coming out at 6.5 inches so I just put a row of double crochet around the edge to make up the difference. I hope that this is ok!

I really wouldn't worry about it babycakes. We have a great group of people participating!!!

I also worry that my partners won't like my squares because I am such a noobie!

I must return to happily hookin' my squares!

Have a good evening all!!

I've had the same issue...I could have sworn they measured right when I finished, but when I made an ACTUAL 7" square, I realized all the others were too small.

YAY!  I'm done with all my squares! Grin (I would have finished a bit sooner, but Lego Pirates of the Caribbean distracted me.)  I'll get them in the mail Monday. (I have to get some padded envelopes.)  Now off to start knitting some socks; happy crafting everyone!

*hides* I still need to get started on my squares. It's a good thing I'm a fast crocheter.

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!

Hey ladies!

I am learning how to crochet granny squares pretty quickly now! Smiley

I only have 5 done. I was hoping to have more but i was trying out a few different motifs but i am unsure if i am going to be able to perfect them enough for dispatching them to my partners.. I very well may only send traditional granny squares. Sad Oh well! They will be pretty anyway Sad

happy hookin' partners!

After my son being sick...and after making multiple squares too small/too big...I now have 9 squares completely finished and two more that still need to be fixed. I was hoping to have 15 done by now, but things don't always go according to plan. Hopefully my son will allow me more time to work on these now that he's well. Just got to figure out a way to keep him away from the yarn.
