hmmm I thought that and tried to be conscious of it but I may still be doing it a bit tight. The label says 5.5mm (size 9 US) needles and 22st x 17rows per 4"sq for gauge. I only had a 4.5mm (size 7 US)hook on hand.

I've been crocheting a long time and I most of the time have to go up at least a hook size for almost every pattern I follow

I absolutely love love quilts, do you think an afghan is a fair trade for a quilt? I'd love to swap!

I quite often need to go up a hook size. And maybe even two hook sizes if the ball band or info on the yarn shows to use the same size crochet hook as knitting needles. Crochet almost always requires a larger hook than knitting needles to get the same gauge and drape.

Great socks!

Oh yay! One of my swap packages was just received Cheesy I made a "cuts of meat " dress for a partner inspired by a dress we both pinned on our Pinterests! I used butcher's paper to make the graphics and am very happy with out it turned out Smiley I also did a post on it here

Smash that is one crazy dress  Grin I really did laugh out loud  Grin

sarahj2001 beautiful colours on the fibres and yarns you spun. Spinning your own yarn is so impressive.
 I have some sock yarn and koolaid that I got as a gift but I haven't dared to dye it yet nervous about ruining the yarn by making a horrible colour combo  Embarrassed

ChrisSews - Not the usual run of the mill crafting going on! Sausage making - awesome Grin

sarahj2001-Love all the yarn and fiber. 

smashu- What a funny dress. The graphics are so neat and clean.

ChrisSews- Wow, you are so brave. I would never think/dare to make my own sausage.

Sarahj, I love all your fiber projects!

Life has been busy and not only am I way behind in this thread, but the fact that March has begun totally escaped me and I forgot to post all of my February projects.  Urgh.  But I will take photos and post at a later time.

I just wanted to let you know what I spent my Amazon gift card on.  Both have been on my wishlist for a little while and I'll be excited once I have my hands on them:

The Vegan Slow Cooker (http://www.amazon.ca/The-Vegan-Slow-Cooker-Intensely/dp/1592334644/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1330982319&sr=1-1)

Gem Water (http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/1844091317/ref=ox_ya_os_product)

I will post photos of the other prizes once they arrive.  Thanks alwaysinmyroom hosting these draws!
