Here is my blanket so far, the lighting is pretty bad because I have to take it from my video, but you get the idea.  This is the blanket on Rnd 18 I think? I'm doing 6 rounds per color.

Hopefully I will get through another 6 with blue and post my progress before the long weekend is done Smiley

I just read the pattern, and I'm not sure what "shell" refers to in this pattern...

The shell is 3dc, ch2, 3dc in the chain2 hole at each star point
43  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Co Buffalos fan on: August 31, 2006 01:01:19 PM
My friend has a baby who is now about 3  months old and I'm trying to figure out what to make him for Christmas.  He LOVES the Co. Buffalos (football team I guess? I'm not a fan).  I knit and crochet and am FAIRLY crafty.  Not a professional by any means, but can figure most things out through trial and error.  Anyone have any ideas?  I was thinking of a gold and black star  baby blanket, but he already has a CU blanket his mom made.  Lil' Buff is his nickname and that could be used as well as the logo.

I've been working on this blanket since last weekend, I will post pics as soon as I can.  I'm using the Caron Simply Soft yarns in carbine red, lemonade, green blue and purple (not sure exactly the names of the last three).  I had SO many starts and restarts trying to get past the first few rounds.  I still occasionally find I need to add a stitch or decrease every once in a while, but it's going pretty good now.  This is the first real crochet I've done, besides a cat toy and some wristwarmers, since I usually knit.  I love how fast my project grows!

Thanks so much for the ideas!  I will let him look at the patterns and see if any appeal to him.  If he's lucky maybe he'll get two!  This has really helped!

47  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cliche New York Scarf?? on: August 20, 2006 12:34:26 PM
My friend moved to NY this year and has requested that I make him a "cliche ny scarf".  Seeing as I am in the middle of Iowa and have never been to NY I need some ideas.  I told him to keep an eye out for things he likes then send me a picture so I can get an idea.  Does anyone have any ideas for style/color or even an actual pattern that might be good?  He is a somewhat conservative dresser and probably wants something he can wear to the hospital (he's FINALLY a real doctor now) and out on the town.  I'm hoping to give it to him in December when he comes home.  Thanks in advance!

He's adorable!  How long will he ride around in the sling?  I bet one of my cats would love that, the other one is way to independent though.
50  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: those "teach yourself to knit" kits... on: July 19, 2006 01:56:05 PM
My first FO's came from the cat toy knitting kit.  When I first put the DVD in and tried to follow along I was SOO confused.  It was hard to tell what was happening exactly from watching.  I think it taught both English and Continental styles.  I ended up having a friend show me the basic knit stitch and longtail cast on in person, then used knittinghelp.com to figure everything else out.  I just used the pattern in the book and forgot about the dvd.  I would recommend checking the skill level before you start.  I used the intermediate and there was dec. and inc. but really it wasn't too hard.  It was kinda good having the needles, yarn, and pattern I needed all right together to start with.  I probably wouldn't get a kit again since now I have my own needles and yarn and can find patterns online, but it was helpful for a first project!
