421  Re: 2010 12" Squares CAL- May in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: April 30, 2010 06:14:53 PM
Happy (early) May Day! I'll be out of town, so I'm posting the square tonight. It's Eternal Braid by Chris Simon. It has one unusual bit, but it isn't difficult and it's clearly explained. There's a minor pattern correction (see first post), but I think everything else is good (any mistakes I made were due to crocheting while tired and/or watching TV).



I love the center of this motif!

I've got pictures! Finally! I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner... The pictures are a bit dark, but they're all I have.

So, here's the "afghan" in all of it's glory before...



Lovely, no? No... definitely, no...


And here is where it is falling apart...



And here is the beginning of the pile of squares that have been cut out, alongside the pile of the black yarn that I cut them out of...



There is black fuzz everywhere!

I'll post a few more progress pictures (glued ends, added rounds) later...

423  Re: 2010 12" Squares CAL- April in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: March 31, 2010 06:22:46 PM
Since I've had enough March showers (and torrential, flooding rains) to last me for the entire month of April, I thought I'd bring May's flowers in early!

Here's Tiptoe Through the Tulips, and I have to admit, I was so focused on checking the pattern that I didn't even realize that I was making little tulips in my block. In my defense, it didn't help that my leaf/stem row was in white instead of green Wink



The picture isn't the greatest, but it was 9 PM when I took it. If the sun really does come out tomorrow, I'll try to take a better photo.

Super minor correction listed in first post...

The sun finally decided to shine during a time that I was home to take pictures! So, I present my second Willow and a Daisy Chain:





The Willow was made while I was on vacation and I only had a limited supply of yarn, but I like the color combo. And, for the Daisy Chain, the colors are very similar to a suggested color scheme in the 200 Crochet Blocks book. I really like it and could see a whole blanket made in these colors.

Two more for me!

#20: Round Dishcloth (I think it's the 3rd round one on the list)



I left off the edging round...

#21: Tunisian Simple Stitch



I learned how to do Tunisian crochet for the 2nd round of the Scavenger Hunt Crochet Motif Swap, and this was a bit of practice. I figured I'd might as well make the practice swatch functional! Wink

427  Re: IYP 15 - The Winter Waltz Gallery in The Swap Gallery by craftADDchick on: March 22, 2010 02:22:18 PM
Holy cow! This is such an awesome gallery! I'm a bit intimidated by all of the gorgeous stuff, so I'm kind of glad I stayed away until I (finally) finished up my items. I love every single package that has been received (and while I don't want to play favorites, that quilt is gorgeous, as is the woodland poppet)!

I received my package from koalascout last week, but wouldn't allow myself to open it until I finished her items. Since the contents were not for me, I could resist... until koalascout told me she tucked something in there for me.

So, I was finally able to open the package today and it was jam-packed with stuff (koalascout said some items are missing and will be on the way, but I haven't figured out what they are, yet).

First up, felt play food for my friend's daughter. koalascout's stitching is so perfect!

A bologna, cheese and butter sandwich on honey wheat bread, a bottle of Sunny D, fruit roll-ups and a lunch bag:


Corn on the cob w/removable husk, a peach with slices, Halloween sugar cookies, and Christmas cookies (that I thought were real when I first saw them):


2 cereal bowls with spoons, Honey Smacks cereal, chocolate milk, yogurt w/lid, and a pumpkin treat holder w/fruit snacks:


A fish & chips basket (with fries and potato chips) and a McDonald's apple pie!


And a grocery bag for her to keep it all in:


And then the extras she included for me:

Some Little Odd Balls of yarn:


And an awesome project kit in a chalk-covered Pringles can! She included a bottle cap pincushion, a medicine bottle pincushion and pin holder, a covered tape measure, a needle book, a pair of scissors with a retractable "leash", a chopstick to push stuffing into tight spots, a stitch counter and a set of stitch markers (5 with frogs!):


Thanks so much koalascout! I'm sure my friend's daughter will be delighted with her food and thanks for including such awesome extras for me! Hopefully, your package will be there in a couple of days!

More great colors! And, it's sweet that she included a washcloth Wink

Here are the pics of my awesome yarn. First up, all the way from Australia, lovely little balls of acrylic from kwiltykate! I especially appreciate that she was able to send me some brown (I still have 33 more brown GDs to make, so this should knock a few off of that number Wink ).



And some beautiful stuff from myklia!


From the left: cotton/acrylic, alpaca?, nylon/kid mohair/wool/metallic, acrylic/wool/nylon, merino wool

And...


From the left: acrylic/wool, alpaca?, alpaca?, silk/merino,  handspun sari silk (spun by myklia!)



I absolutely love all of the yarn I received! Thanks so much to all of my partners!

I found my camera! It was in a bag of crafting supplies (I don't know how it ended up in there...). I came across it while digging out something for a swap item I'm working on, so I figured I'd better take a minute to post the pic of my awesome yarn from fantasticmio.

I just love the colors that she sent!



Thanks a bunch, fantasticmio!

It's true!

Just take a look at the swaps I've been in and who organized them.  Grin

As always, happy to enable my fellow crochet addicts Wink


And.... Heeeeerrreee's March!

It's the Easter Day Square by SmoothFox. It's quick and easy, and there is only the most minor of pattern notes (check the first post, although it's so minor you probably won't need to Wink ).

I used a K hook (I think... it's the same hook I've been using for the other squares) and it came out to exactly 12 inches.
