Cucumber and melon are favorite scents of mine! And, I think the Saturday undies are my favorite. I'm glad you finally received- yay for mcook!

My month has been crazy so far, but I am back in the swing of crochet. I probably won't finish this up on time (I'm still working on last year's, too!), but I'll keep plugging away until I get it all finished. I was doing so well keeping up until the summer hit... Tongue

I don't think there was any purple in the skein- the bits I snipped off after doing the weaving in were red and orange (I think there was some orange...).

It's a variegated that also has some red in it. I don't know the name, because it was made from a ball of yarn (10 yards) I received from the Little Odd Ball Yarn Swap. Feels like Red Heart Super Saver. And, it was funny, because all of the ones I made from that little ball ended up with the same 4-color pattern in the GD!

You can use all kinds of materials. For your first band, I recommend a durable material, because you might sometimes want to unweave and reweave a part, and that stresses the yarn. Cotton works fine, for example.
On the other hand, I also recommend you to use a yarn that you like the touch of. The more fun you have weaving your bands, the better. That's why I don't use cotton that often, and rather go for wool. Wool is also more dynamic when it comes to holding tension. I did my first band in wool, but I don't recommend it as a beginner's yarn. It depends a lot on the quality of your wool.
I also hoarded cotton embroidery floss for card weaving because of the shining colors Smiley but I haven't tried it yet. I guess it'll make very nice bands.

Thanks for the info! I was wondering how well embroidery floss would work. I'll have to start exploring the fibers that are available to me...

Does Bernat's Softee Chunkee come in pink? I don't wear much pink, but I wore a pink shirt yesterday (basic polo shirt) and got a ton of compliments  on it, so I'm thinking I need to wear some more pink Wink

And, now that I've actually got the pattern, I'm dying to try this out!!

ETA: I just found some "Antique Rose" online (on sale, even!) and ordered 5 skeins. I'll make a hat or something with the extra, but I don't want to run out!
6819  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Undies Swap - My Fave Themes .:CLOSED:. on: October 16, 2008 04:47:35 PM
I'm going to have to wait until Monday to send out my undies as I can't go shopping until tomorrow. This week has been both so long and also "how's it already Thursday?" But I do have ideas churning for my partner's sets.

Whew! Because I don't have time to work on them, yet! I really need to learn how to say "No" to things at work- I just loaded myself up with a tutoring gig, co-chairing the science night, helping to negotiate a part of our contract and something almost every weekend until mid-November!

But, I plan to get to the PO tomorrow. I may not have a chance until Saturday night to PM the DC#, though.

I have plenty of ideas, I just need to figure out which ones I can actually do...

Wow!! That is really creative craftADDchick.  You and I should hang out (except that you are so far away). Wink  I was going to arrange my granny daughters completely random with the Red Heart Kids Cruise Blue as my background color.  I am not changing my mind on my background color, but now I am rethinking how I might arrange my granny daughters.  You totally rock craftADDchick.

I'm blushing!
