I'm so glad I posted my question, I would have never thought about any of that.  Thanks.

I was all set to add the info to the first post in the thread (and in the soon-to-be swap thread), but now I'm glad I continued to read this thread! I didn't think about durability. I'm guessing it would survive dryer heat, since you can sew clothing with transparent thread and it survives, but it may not hold up under general wear and tear. Maybe you could use it for a scarf or a table runner?

I'm glad that there will probably be a round 2, as well. I just can't commit to it right now, sadly... I'll be watching the gallery to see all of the completed scarves, though!

Also, when I sent my pkg, I forgot to put in a note saying who I am!!! Roll Eyes. But I think I wrote it on the outside of the pkg....oops.

Well, it's not that hard for the person to click on the "show images only" tab and figure out who they received from!

LOL! I did the same thing! So, my partner will have to follow the directions above Wink Wink
LOL me too! DOH!

If I do this swap again, I'll have to make sure I make the note as I'm making the prize Wink And then remember to include it Grin

Excellent squares, folks! And, good advice on Round 7, mommycrochets. That will probably make it easier for anybody.

I just printed out the March pattern. I'll be giving it a go in the next week, during my vacation.

My job may be changing next year, so I may have to test and make all of the squares over the summer. Because if it changes like I think it will, I'll have absolutely no extra time to crochet Tongue

I just updated the status on the first page of this thread. I went through the pics and noticed that I had missed that someone had received. I didn't have a PM, so...

Please, please, pretty please, with sugar on top, send me a PM when you send and when you receive. I've been wicked busy, and have only had a chance to glance at the thread, and check PMs.

And, just as a reminder, feedback will be left when your partners have received AND when you have posted pics of what you have received (exceptions to the last bit will be made if your partner sends late).

Can't wait to see more GDs!

I received an awesome bundle of Granny's Daughters from Knichole! They came yesterday, but I got home too late to even open the package.

She sent some awesome colors, included a bunch of extras, and wove in both ends! Knichole, you are my hero!!

Here's the pile fresh out of the box:


And here's the pile sorted by color:


The colors of the varigateds are fantastic! And there is a red/orange/yellow one with some coordinating ones that exactly match the yarn I have upstairs for the Ravelry version of the 12" Square CAL Wink

Thanks so much Knichole!

I received today! All the way from Australia! From the lovely cyndiq! Yay!

I received the crocheted panta and matching scrunchie, the wire-wrapped heart pendant necklace, a Caramello Koala, and 2 little packs of Vegemite.

Here's the whole bunch:


And, a close-up of the pendant:


The panta and scrunchie are made from such soft yarn! I wish I could keep them! But, my hair's a bit too short, so I'm going to give them as a birthday present to a young friend of mine. And, cyndiq, if you can point me in the direction of the panta pattern, I can make a matching set for her sister, as well. We celebrate their birthdays at the same party, which is coming soon, I think.

The pendant is all mine, however, and I love it!! I'm wearing it on Saturday, most definitely!

Thanks so much cynidq, and thanks TSM for organizing another fun round Wink

And not to rub it in, but in my part of the world the crocus are popping up and daffodils are 4-5 inches out the ground.

 Tongue Wink

Well, we got some melting this weekend when it reached the 40s... but then it froze up again Tongue

And, I want to crochet... but work is calling... and, with all of the pressure they are putting on folks, nobody is safe...

My item is close... very close... almost close enough for the recipient to touch... or eat, as the case may be Wink
