I received the rest of my GDs from Beautifully Frayed the other day!

btw Beautifully Frayed, which yarn did you use for the top three colors of GDs? It's really soft and it gave me a fantastic idea for an afghan!

This is quite adorable! Your stitches are so even and the overall design is very clever and well executed.  Smiley

This is amazing!! If I had one, I would hang it up on my wall as a wallhanging when I'm not actually using it as a gameboard. Again, this is amazing!

yes yes YES! I'm totally in! I wanted to do the DH swap that's going on now but that was before I started my job. I'm so glad to see another HP swap popping up so soon!  Grin

I've been reading this thread every once in a while but I don't think I've actually made a post in a while. I managed to get all of my fabric stash organized into one of those wire cube thingies. Now I can see all of it at once so hopefully I'll be de-stashing from that soon.

I was really bad today... I went to Hobby Lobby just to look at yarn and I found 7 skeins of Vanna's Choice Baby in Berrylicious for only $1.21 a skein (regular $3.29). Not only that but I also found 6 skeins of the same yarn in Bluebell for the same price. I looked up and there were 8 more skeins of the blue color but they weren't marked but they gave them to me for the $1.21 anyway because they weren't going to carry them anymore. So I got 21 skeins of yarn for a little under $30. I just couldn't pass up a deal like that! BUT I have been wanting to make this one afghan I've seen in one of my crochet books so I do have a plan for the yarn! I have just enough for it and all the skeins are the same dye lot! YAY!  Grin
19  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Granny's Daughters Swap R8- SU CLOSED!; SO July 18, 2011 on: July 04, 2011 09:11:41 PM
I was hoping to finish all my GDs by this past weekend but it was a no-go  Sad  Had to work all weekend and then today on my day off, spent all day at my brother's house for the fourth. I have to work tomorrow but then Wednesday I'll probably pick them up again and finish them off. I just found my Eclipse DVD earlier too so I think I need to have a Harry Potter and Twilight marathon so I can get some work done.
20  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Is acrylic really that bad? on: July 04, 2011 10:56:06 AM
I flippin' love acrylic yarn. I started crocheting and knitting with Red Heart Super Saver. As I started to become more adventurous, I tried different acrylic yarns and found RHSS to be just awful. I remember I was knitting a scarf and where the yarn was running through my fingers where I control tension, it gave me a blister! I immediately frogged the project because I just couldn't work with it! Their Red Heart Soft yarn is a delight though. The I Love This Yarn! and Caron Simply Soft like others have said are awesome. Vanna's Choice is also a very soft yarn but the skeins are a lot smaller and they don't have as many colors. I also love wool and alpaca but sometimes they're just not practical  Undecided
