This sounds really fun! Could there be a question about novelty thread? I know fun fur has been mentioned. I think it would be really cute to add a strand of fun fur or my personal fave, boa, to a few rounds of a motif.

I can put a question in there, but I'm not sure if I can match partners based on the answer to it. I can try, but I allergies and sending out of country tend to suck up a lot of the partner options...

After this weekend, I'm going to start putting together the questionnaire, so keep on giving me input Wink

Honestly, I shouldn't spend as much as I do... Tongue I'm pretty sure I'll be using stash yarn for this, as well.

And, the best thing about the internet is that there are so many free patterns available. And, the idea of using the center of a square pattern is an awesome one! There's also the library- mine is awesome about getting books for me (even books that they have, but are checked out, they'll get from another library in the system if they can, which really surprises me).

It's a bit trickier in the beginning. It gets easier, though. If you just follow the pattern bit by bit, and don't try to out-think it, it really does work out well

*is scared* I can't wait to see it and try it out  Cheesy

Don't be too scared! It was really only one tiny thing that I didn't quite get (I'll make a note of it in the post and maybe a more experienced crocheter can clarify it), so I winged it and it looks fine. It really is a follow-stitch-by-stitch pattern in the beginning. After Round 7, it's easy! And Round 7 isn't hard, you just have to pay attention Wink

It really does come in handy! I even saw the boyfriend using it today Smiley

The pocket shape is indeed a trapezoid. I'm going to make another of these tomorrow hopefully so I will put together a tute.

As for the Timtex, I've never actually seen it before but I think it's about the same weight as Pellon 70, maybe even a little stiffer. You would need a piece 14" x 20" to duplicate my measurements, and the Pellon is exactly 20 inches wide! (Did this have anything to do with my size choice? Maybe...it also helped that the linen was 40"!) If you're not sure about the Timtex, try Amy Butler's website (amybutlerdesign.com). She redid some of her patterns to include substitutions for Timtex when it became unavailable, so she might have some tips there.

Thanks for that info! I bought the Timtex to make reversible fabric bowls, but had a lot of trouble with my machine and the satin stitch. So, if it's wide enough, I have plenty. If it isn't now, I know where else to look. Thanks again Wink

I'm still trying to figure out what to add to my item to make it worthy (it's a decorated tin of chocolates). Any suggestions?
What about a set of note-cards? Or a small amigurumi? Would either of those work with the chocolates?

What about an amigurumi chocolate with a milk chocolate squiggle on top?  The notecards sound cute too.

Oooh! That's an idea... And, I may have some rubber stamps that look like chocolates... I could do a theme... Off to seek out amigurumi chocolate inspiration...


ETA: I found something that I might actually be able to pull off in time...

I'm still trying to figure out what to add to my item to make it worthy (it's a decorated tin of chocolates). Any suggestions? I'll only have Saturday night to pull something together (unless I post the tin, and then make something to add on Sunday, after the sign-up deadline... which seems like cheating a bit...).

Yup, after a frantic search for a piece of mail, which is still missing, I now definitely need one of these! I'm intrigued by the pocket shape- did you use a trapezoid shaped piece, and then top-stitch it into place? Also, I have some Timtex (thick interfacing used for making brims on hats)- would that work for the inside? I don't know if it comes wide enough, though...

Nice job, krafty kate! Once again, I'm lovin' the squares with the color changes!

And, dannispring240, it's not too late! And, the square is a good one!

Slingmomma, I hope you still feel the same way after the February square! It's a bit trickier in the beginning. It gets easier, though. If you just follow the pattern bit by bit, and don't try to out-think it, it really does work out well (although mine was small again... smaller than January, even. I'll have to fix that later...). I just have to weave in the ends, and I'll post it on Sunday!
