Oh! It looks different than I expected (Dudessembly, I mean). One of these days, I'll get enough squares finished to attempt the assembly process... I have 5 more squares to go from the '08 CAL. I finally finished July, but I still have to weave in the ends. I'll move on to August soon. I'd like to finish it up and give it to my neighbor while it is still cold enough for her to use it!

Ooooh! Pretty, GatsbyGirl! What method is that that you're using to join them? It's pretty!

Oh, man! I was thinking of skipping out on this round, but I'm seeing so much great stuff (and lusting over lafemmefatale's pendant/earrings set), that I'm torn! If I get my MAJOR task finished tomorrow night, I will finally allow myself to do some other crafting, so this swap could  be happening...

I've already started marking pages in my book with the motifs I'd like to try... and, I think I'll also make a set for myself as I'm going along! I figure that once you've done the pattern once, it should go quicker after that. Plus, I can use mine as a practice one...

More fabulous squares! I'm impressed with the quantities that you guys are pumping out, as well! I'm lucky if I can get the original one a month finished Wink

I'm working my way through the February square- it's a bit tricky in the beginning, but I think we'll all be able to help each other get through it...

...avoid swaps?! (says she who is swapping on two sites and overloaded for the next few weeks....)

I've decided that I almost always love what I make for swaps, but then have to send them away. I never get around to making another one for me. So, when I see a swap I like, I'll just make a few items that I'd like and keep them Grin  Saves me on postage, too Smiley  Plus, it's much less stressful... It started when I got flaked on in the tree swap- I was happy to keep what I had made Wink  Crochet is easy enough for me to make multiples of things, so crochet swaps are still good...

For christmas I promised each of my Aunt's a dishcloth each for each month.  This month I am yet again going to attempt *gasp* a crochet rectangle.  Shocked Smiley

Stitch markers... I highly recommend them... I use them to mark the place at the start of each row where I'll need to crochet into at the end of the next row... So, mark the start of row 2.... crochet row 2... start row 3 and mark the start of row 3... get to the end of row 3 (which is now at the end where row 2 started, if that makes any sense), and know where to insert the hook into row 2.

I find it helps me immensely. Because, I always lose track of the turning chains...

Well worth the wait! Fantastic package! Love the tree stuffies and the art, and the tote bag the most. But, it all rocks...
