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


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.

434  Re: Scavenger Hunt Crochet Motif Swap 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by craftADDchick on: February 05, 2010 03:38:32 PM
Yay! I get to post first! Grin

I got my fantastic motifs from Ffrogg526 today, and they rock!

First up: Complimentary Colors, Diagonal, Plant or Veggie Themed

The leaf is her own design!

Next: Lacy, Flower (Daffodil)

Love these! And, the daffodil will complement a motif I made for the last round...

Then: Various shades of 1 color (purple)

This is in a tie for my favorite! I especially love the "braided" corners, and it gives me an idea...

And finally: Heritage (Lithuania), Sender's Choice (my initial!)

Both of these are also in a tie for my favorites! They are tapestry crochet (and also her own patterns), I believe. I'm not 100% sure of what the Lithuanian symbol means, but I did find a version of it on a site about the language of Lithuania.

Thank you so much, Ffrogg526! Awesome!!

435  Re: 2010 12" Squares CAL- February in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: January 31, 2010 09:42:38 AM
Here's the February block! It's called Sun Daze (I figured that we all needed a little sunshine in the middle of February Wink ). Only the most minor of corrections (posted in first post of the thread). I haven't woven in the ends, because mine is a bit rippled and may even be a tiny bit too large. So, I may take out the last 2 rounds and leave out Round 11 and finish with a Round 12.

I found it to be a very easy pattern to follow, and I was able to finish it pretty quickly. I can't wait to see the color combos you all use Grin

Whoo-hoo! I received another excellent bundle of GDs today from koalascout! She sent 2 shades of much-needed red, 2 of blue and 2 of pink (both also much needed).She also sent a fabulous bright orange (think safety cone) and yellow. And a speckled red (not quite a variegated, but very festive) and a BONUS batch of variegateds in a red/orange/yellow color. Thanks a bunch, koalascout!

I think I'm at my target number of 90 for pink and yellow now! Yay, yay, yay! Thanks so much to both of my partners, fantasticmio and koalascout, and to OnePinkHippo for helping get closer to my goal!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Grin Grin Kiss Kiss Kiss

I was able to upload my photo, so here it is Wink I used a size E hook and Caron Simply Soft Brites. I also left off the last round, so mine only came out to 4 1/2" (which is great!). I almost left off the last round of the purple, but decided that it would make the "crennelations" more prominent Smiley

It looks a little cock-eyed in the picture, but it's square in real life Wink

And, I was able to flag down a plow guy and he cleared out my parking spot on the street for a mere $10... saved me at least an hour of work and saved my back days of agony Grin

Here's my Willow block! I only did the first 6 rounds, and used an E hook, so it came out on the smaller side, which is good. The center is Vanna's Choice, the next color is Red Heart SS, and the last color is some brand I got at Michael's that I'd never heard of before. I ordinarily wouldn't choose a variegated yarn, but it was sitting right beside the rust-colored Vanna's Choice and it matched so well, I had to use it. Then, I dug through the bag of blue yarn I had to find a matching shade...

This is destined for my motif blanket! I even wove in the ends already Wink

And, I realized that for the blocks that aren't suitable for my motif blanket, I can always use cotton yarn and make them into washcloths Grin

I just printed out the pattern for the Castle's End Square, and I may tackle that tomorrow  Smiley

Number 19! It's the Puff X Square. I like the way the colors came out on the variegated yarn, but I've decided that I don't like the puff stitch very much...

440  Stencilled Mesh Produce Bags in Stenciling: Completed Projects by craftADDchick on: January 14, 2010 04:25:50 PM
So, for Christmas, I made my friend a set of singlet style grocery bags (using the tutorial found here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177482.0) and I figured I'd make her some produce bags to go with them. Somewhere, I saw that someone had modified a mesh bag (Blink Tidy Totes, purchased at the Dollar Tree) by adding on a decorative fabric panel to the bottom. I was a bit worried that the panel would be too heavy, so instead I cut a stencil of the recycling symbol. I used a piece of card stock for the stencil. I slipped a piece of scrap paper into the bag and taped the stencil in place. I carefully dabbed on the fabric paint and let it dry. I didn't expect the image to be so clear on the mesh, so I'm pretty happy with how they came out. I have 2 blank bags left, so I may be making a set for myself Wink
