indigo- your scarf is fantastic! What pattern is that? It reminds me of a bunch of GDs put all together. And, alwaysinmyroom, free yarn! Definitely worth the extra crocheting time Wink

My scarf still awaits its photo shoot...

Thanks! It's the diagonal box stitch, I'm pretty sure there's a link to how to do it on the first page, with a sc border around it (to hide where I carried the yarn when making color changes).

I'll have to check it out for another scarf. I'm only going to be able to make one for the Special Olympics. I have so many irons in the fire right now, I can't believe it (or figure out how I let it happen...).

alwaysinmyroom - and just as you think you are done you just get draaaaaaaagged back in. Just the way we like it  Cheesy

kittymom13 - Thank you and thank you for the link! Looks perfect for this project!

indigo_roses - congrats on your first scarf! It came out awesome! And oh no about your heat! I hope it is fixed by now or at least soon anyways!

craftADDchick - ugh, I know what you mean. I am already anxious about December coming and I have a buttload to do before then. I've got the double whammy with birthdays that month

Anyone else getting snow? We are forcasted for 5-10" and it is only our first snow fall of the season! And best of all it's been snowing on my birthday!(this never happens) I have decided that since I am now prehistoric I am going to be a T-Rex this year  Grin Okay, okay I am only 23 but I need an excuse to be a T-Rex okay?  Wink

Update: The power has gone out. I hope none of you (assuming some of you got snow) have your power out!

NE got another whallop! Unbelievable...and power outages...YiKeS!  Shocked

The cookies sound wonderful and a great way to heat up the home, too! =]  I'm in a baking kind-of-mood.  Good ole' chocolate chip cookies for us.  And a way to say 'Thank you'! for watching our kittehs!!

I love the latest diagonal scarf!  Great stitchin! =]

I've only gotten a little ways on my latest S.O. scarf...today it is getting pulled out while visiting w/friends. Pic to come tomorrow. 

Hope everyone is well, warm, and happily keeping fingers busy w/projects! =]

Thanks for the compliments! And yes, I have heat now. All better! My power went out during the storm, but it came back on after about 30 seconds. Phew!

Due to the snow, however, I didn't have to go to work on Saturday. At the time I didn't have much with me, but I had thrown my red and blue yarn in my bag. So, I'm about 3/4 of the way done with my next scarf! I haven't taken a picture of it, I think I'll probably wait until I finish it, which will probably be soon.  Tongue This one's a more lacy one that's done horizontally - just a few looooong rounds instead of lots of short rows!

I lost power at midnight on Saturday, which also means no heat, so I'm at my sister's house. The town I teach in got seriously hammered, so we had no school today and none tomorrow. June is really going to suck...

I did bring the scarf with me to show my sister, and I realized that if I can use her camera, I may be able to get a decent photo while I'm here!

Here are the scarves I made all bundled up, ready to ship!  I sent out last week and I got my confirmation from UPS that they had arrived...they do not send out confirmations, so I would suggest you send your scarves UPS or with a DC if you want to know that your scarves made it to the warehouse!  The Pennsylvania site has a running tally of how many scarves they have received so far!
