How'd I miss this?! I'm going to print out the pattern and do the Jan square tomorrow! Then maybe I'll work on putting my '08 blanket together!

Thanks ADDChick!

You're welcome! And welcome aboard!

I saved all the snips too but I couldn't figure out what to do with them, the best I thought was to use as batting/stuffing, but I like your idea much better

If you live in an area where there aren't a lot of cats, you can scatter them on the ground, too. I have a neighbor who lets her multiple cats roam free, so I can't do that...

I prefer to have the tails woven in, and I use the 6" length to weave it in (it helps to have extra length), and then trim off the excess.

I used to hate weaving ends in, but now I find that it's actually soothing. And, I save all of the snips of acrylic yarn in a baggie so I can put them out during nesting season for the birds to pick from Smiley

Okay, everybody!  I'm so stoked!  My square turned out soooo pretty, and I can't believe I actually made it! 

I'm bummed, though, because I'm to the "Measure work" part of the directions, and my square is exactly TEN inches (not 11 or 11-1/2 like it should be!).  I may just use 13A to finish the block and then try the whole thing all over again with a bigger hook next time.



That's how big mine was, too (with a J hook). I had that problem last year, too and I tried to get the sizes up to 12" with extra rounds. It was a bit aggravating so, this year, I just decided to finish off the pattern as written and then I'll make them all the same size when they are all finished (but I'm hoping they'll all magically work out to the same size Wink ).

It actually wasn't too bad to do 80. I was very nervous at the start of the last one, and ended up doing a last bunch at the last minute. This time, I'm doing a few at a time. I can do 6 in about 10 minutes or so. I'm making 6 of a bunch of colors, 2 each for my partners and 2 for me! They really do go pretty quickly. If you did 6 a day, you'd be done in about 2 weeks. But, since they're so quick, you could do more than 6 a day and be done even sooner! They're a good, quick, down-time project or a chill-out-before-bedtime project Wink

Hi! I live in Massachusetts and I have an allergy to cats and dogs (but mostly if I come in contact with their fur, or they've been sleeping on yarn or fabric that gets made into something). I love science and nature themed stuff (science jewelry is a big hit at work- an elementary school where I'm the science specialist). I love earth tones, greens, purples and  blues.


My wishlist:
Large items:
A round-ripple or starghan crocheted afghan
Knit socks (my feet are about US size 7.5)
A homemade inkle loom

Medium items:
Tea box
Magazine bowl
Marbled paper
Lightbulb (or test tube) hanging vase
Robot dish set (plate, bowl, mug) with painted (like these) or etched robots
Chainmaille necklace
Set of ribbon spool organizers (natural wood color)
Estrogen necklace
Hand-dyed wool yarn that I can felt
Square bottomed buckets- I'll use them to store crocheted washcloths and linen dish towels in my kitchen
A card weaving kit

Small items:
Gocco notecards with a science and nature theme
Fused glass pendant
Homemade soap (not the melt and pour kind)
Spoon necklace
knit amigurumi critters (sea life, cute animals)
Microscope slide pendants
Insect in resin pendant
Knit dishcloths that have a raised image (like a frog or something) in it
Science earrings (I love these virus earrings ) or cool animal charm earrings (I have hedgehogs, bats, llamas, armadillos, frogs, turtles), but they have to have sterling silver wires (and not the post kind)
Colored animal eyes
Plastic bags to make goldfish-in-a-bag soaps

I have 57 made so far! But, since I'm making 120 (an extra 40 for me), I'm not quite half done... and then there's the ends to weave in...

I've found that it's an excellent craft to do while I'm talking on the phone... but I don't talk on the phone very often... and it's also an excellent craft to do while I'm waiting for something, which I seem to do very often... So, I should be done without any problems (and I probably just jinxed myself Wink ).

I do confess that I started when I was waiting for repair guys to show up at my house before Christmas. I was anxious and needed something to do to keep my hands busy, but something that I didn't have to think too much about. So, these were perfect Grin
