6341  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Traveling Scarf Swap Gallery! (Round 2) on: March 14, 2009 05:08:37 AM
Love that crossover shell pattern! And, granny stripes!

I'm taking my scarf to a friend's house to work on today (she lives in NH, so it's actually doing a bit of traveling Wink ).

Wow! I love all of the scarf sections so far! One disadvantage to making all of the sections myself is that I can't tap into all of your talents...

I had my second section finished over a week ago, but never stopped to take a picture. So, here is my (non)traveling scarf Wink



It's a dark brown, and I think I used pattern number 7 in my 300 pattern crochet book.

Here's a blurry pic of the 2 sections:



I'm hoping to work on my 3rd section this weekend! Can't wait to see how all of your scarves progress  Smiley

I just finished my second motif! I made it in triplicate- one for me and one for each of my partners. I just picked out the next one I'm going to make, but I'll have to leave that until tomorrow.

I'm rotating through my books- the first motif was is from Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs, the second one is from 201 Crochet Motifs, Blocks, Projects and Ideas, and the third one is from Crochet Bouquet. Then, I'll make another rotation through and see where I stand in terms of the total number of inches.

If I keep on my one-motif-set-a-night pace (on the nights I have time, that is), I should be finished before the send-out date.  I may be able to do more smaller motifs in an evening if I get home at a reasonable time.

I have a limited amount of stash yarn, but I have some yarn that is dedicated to projects. Since they take so little yarn, I could probably use a bit of those yarns to add a bit of variety to my color palette. I also need to organize my yarn a bit (okay, a lot  Cheesy ), so I may find some other colors that I can use... I'm not allowing myself to buy any yarn. If I get desperate, I can use some of the colors I got in the Little Odd Ball Yarn Swap (but I was planning to use those for Granny's Daughters). I'm packing up some craft projects to take to a friend's house on Saturday; I have a few sewing projects I need to tackle, but I'm sure I can find a bit of time to crochet Wink

I have one of these from the science museum! It has pics of dinos and stuff on it, and I bought it so I could try to make one. I never thought to make one out of fabric, so I'm totally thinking in a new direction now!

Thanks for posting your project, cause I'm totally stealing your idea Wink
6345  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: 2009 12" Squares- March on: March 12, 2009 04:19:58 PM
I finished my March square this morning and it was almost an inch too big! That never happens!, so I ripped out the last row and it's all better now. Hehe. :p I'll post pictures tomorrow, I really like this square.

Mine would have probably been 12" but since the first 2 were smaller, I left off the last round as well!

And, Esjay, that lapghan looks fantastic! And, it's great that you're donating it. Maybe that's what I'll end up doing with this one...

I have only the one crochet book, but I would like more! I am, however, getting quite a collection of patterns that I've printed off the internet. I'm going to have to get a notebook or something to corral them!

In the process of moving books to make room for my new bookcases, I came across a few crochet books I forgot I had. I spent several minutes looking through Doris Chan's Amazing Crochet Lace book.  I'm still looking for my copy of One Skein, which I bought to give as a gift (and to copy a couple of patterns out of), but I haven't found it amongst the stacks of books. I do think that my 200 Blocks book is in a stack right beside the bed, however. I guess I really, really need to get my books organized so I can figure out what I have. It'll be a bit like Christmas Wink

I have all of the patterns I've found online saved on an external hard drive. I should probably back that up at some point! I have almost 500 patterns saved and of the lot, I have over 100 dishcloth patterns! Guess I'd better get busy Wink

Wow, that's alot of patterns! A new goal for me to work towards.... Grin

I just can't resist a nice pattern Wink

Okay, I was able to make a quick partner adjustment, so everyone is free to motif away again Wink It only affected 2 people, so it all worked out very neatly  Wink

mochaxlight, you'll be missed!  Cry

Good morning folks (whatever your weather may be Wink )!

Mochaxlight had to drop out of the swap, so I may need to do some partner rearranging (unless I can find a new swapper to fill her spot). So, hold off on motif-making/sending until I can look at things tonight. I think I can make an easy switch (only involving midnight 7649 and dsdiviny), but I'm at work and can't give it my full attention...

Oh boo!  I was going to put her stuff in the mail on Saturday!  I have another friend I can give those to fortunately Smiley

Well... maybe they'll match up with your new partner Wink  Which I am now free to figure out- 1st graders in my room does not make for a good time to concentrate on anything but 1st graders Wink

And, MareMare, I can't wait to see what you make Wink

Wait, what motifs I make for you or what I make out of the motifs I get? I think I missed something lol.


What you make for me, of course! Grin  And then later... what you make out off what you get Wink
