Everyone motif's look awesome!! When I started that stained glass one I didnt think it would be that big lol. I obviously wasn't paying attention to the size listed. That was the first time I tried the entraloc tunisian...... I have now begun 3 baby blankets with it because it is super easy and goes super fast.  I think it is now my favorite!!

MareMare--- I almost sent you a broomstick lace one in almost that same color lol. Smiley

And, last night, I counted up all of my motifs and I have a total of 106! All with ends woven in and ready to be joined!

But... because I didn't stick to any specific color scheme, I don't know how I'll arrange them. To say it's a riot of color isn't quite accurate. A vomiting riot of color might be more appropriate! But, seriously... I did start to sort them by main color groups, but realized that if I tried to work that out last night, I'd never get to bed. I have a lot of purple ones, green ones and blue ones. Then, I have a smaller bunch of aqua ones. And a few dark teal ones. That batch looks pretty good together. It's when I add in the oranges, yellows, reds, pinks and browns that things start to go awry. So, I could end up dividing the motifs into 2 piles and make 2 blankets with them. Which would mean I'd have to join another round (or 2) of a motif swap! And, be a bit more specific in my color requests Wink

ETA: And, I just saw in my e-mail that the 150 Knit/Crochet Motifs book is ready for me at the library! I'll be there on Thursday, so I'll grab it then Smiley

Would it help somehow to make up a dozen or couple dozen motifs of a solid neutral to put in there with the colors? I'll have to gather all of mine up soon and see what I have and what I can do with them I am about ready to look for an additional motif/square book. The main ones I've been using lately are Beyond the Square, 200 Crochet Blocks, and Crochet Bouquet, does anyone have recommendations for any others that I really should own?

Also, I was thinking it would be really fun to do a Crochet Along for either Beyond the Square or 200 Crochet Blocks (if there isn't one already, I should go check) and do all of the motifs/squares in the book in order. BTW, there aren't really 200 blocks in the one book, some of them are just alternate color schemes I think.

And, I have one more motif to make and then I am ready to send to my last two partners tomorrow! Woot!

I was planning to join them with white, and figured that the melange of colors would be part of the fun of the blanket... I still might do it that way because A) That was the original intent, B) It would make the blanket "special" and C) I'm lazy...  Wink

And, I have another motif book upstairs... It's called "201 Crochet Motifs, Blocks, Projects & Ideas" by Melody Griffiths that is pretty good. I was tempted to buy a motif book at a Japanese bookstore in NYC, but I resisted. I picked up a book that illustrates how to do all of the stitches that are in my Japanese pattern books instead. On my next trip into the city, I may have to break down and buy a motif book in that store...

And, fantasticmio had started a CAL for the Beyond the Square motifs, but it sort of fell by the wayside. It could be fun to start it up again!
