CHALLENGE ENTRY

I made a blanket!  I promise I didn't use any camera effects for this - the blanket actually already greyscale. Tongue

And here is the thread on the Crochet board: www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=423485.0
(There's a picture there that shows a close-up of the stitches)

This one is going to B4C. ^_^

CHALLENGE ENTRY

And here is my Eventually Granny Square Crayon blanket (sometimes known as the Math Win blanket!)

The Crochet board post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=423486.0


(If anyone is wondering, I did make both of these blankets during the month of May!  I'm participating in the Harry Potter Knit and Crochet House Cup over on Ravelry, and May marked the start of a new term.  I'm trying to out-do myself on yardage this term and am aiming for 24000 yards by the end of July.  I'm off to a good start!  Having easy access to most of my stash now has just sped things up nicely. ^_^)

A challenge?!?  According to the swap guidelines, all my projects qualify, but there isn't an appropriate board for most of my things. Sad

I'll just keep crafting in my usual manner. Smiley

Love your blankets, fantasticmio

You could put your items under various places, like Toys for your Chinese checker boards, Household or Miscellaneous for your spoons, etc.  And, yes, most of your stuff would qualify as "large" due to expense and time!!

The goal is to let more people see the wonderful projects posted in craftalongs and swaps! Cheesy

So, my Chinese checkers qualify?   I did make them in May.  The spoons don't qualify.  I finished them last month, even though I'm making more.

And I have a whole list of recycled projects coming up. Smiley

Oh, and do the temple blocks qualify?  I started them in April, but finished them in May.

I already added your Chinese Checkers...Cheesy

The temple bells qualify as well...post a link to the "outside" thread so I won't get in trouble for adding it Wink

I reviewed May posts that were done BEFORE I posted the challenge and your two were the only ones I saw that I thought qualified...

I fixed the Chinese checkers post and made a new post for it in Toys.  I don't know what you mean by linking to an outside thread.  Do I just make a new post for it in Misc., etc.?

Look how fantasticmio put a link to where she posted to the crochet board...go to the toys board, highlight your first post, copy and paste it into the post here...I will do your Chinese Checker one...Cheesy

I did it as a tiny url but you can do it like fantasticmio did...as long as there is proof of posting...not everyone here will go look, but I will... Cheesy
