Such prettiness already! *Sigh....* I wish I could be sending my scarf on. But, I'll be heading up in a few minutes to take a picture and then start on the next section...

You make me laugh mochaxlight.  I was this close to getting an iPhone, but I selected another smart phone.  I am pretty happy with it.

loose (or lose?)

One of my top pet peeves.

Number one pet peeve:  It is "a lot" not "alot"

For lose vs loose, here are examples:

You lose weight, not loose weight.

Your belt is loose, not lose.

You lose your phone, you don't loose your phone.

The screw is loose, not lose.

Thanks for letting me define this. Cheesy  I hope it helps. (daughter of an English professor here Wink)

LOL! And... is your mom or dad from England? Wink

I worked with a lady who would insist on "professor of English"... She taught 8th grade English, and would correct anyone who called her their English teacher Wink

And, even though I'm not in the swap officially, I am making myself a scarf as a mini- (or mono-) CAL. I'm following along, and I'll post a pic of my progress along with you... I can't wait to see what you all make, especially the knitted sections, because I can't knit worth a dime...

I'm glad they arrived! And, one of them glows in the dark...

Vanilla Ice > GDs. Sorry craftADDchick.  Tongue

I thought he stopped being Vanilla Ice and went into rock? Apparently not.

No offense taken! Wink I didn't realize he was still around... I'm having 80's flashbacks right now Grin

And, I received from imthecutest81! The picture is horrid, though. I couldn't get one in focus without shadows to save my life. I'll have to try again later. But, here's the blurry one...

I really like the black, white and grey ones, and then there are a couple that are in one of my favorite shades of green (olive). Thanks so much!



I'll be doing the first round of feedback this Sunday, so make sure to check your status on the first page of this thread. PM if there is anything I need to fix. I think it's all up to date, but if someone posted an "I received" in the thread, I may have missed it...
6886  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: 2009 12" Squares- February on: February 26, 2009 06:06:24 PM
I've completed my run-through of the March square, and it's a good thing I did Tongue The pattern was missing a few bits, and it was just enough to mess folks up. It isn't a hard pattern, but it's wordy. I'll be posting the file as a PDF  that has my corrections to the original. I checked with a fantastic accomplice, who verified my corrections, but suggested I try to make it easier to read. So, I'll try...

But, don't be frightened! The pattern really is easy! In fact, after a while, I stopped reading the pattern, because it just repeats the same thing for each round, essentially.

I'll try to post it Sunday night before I go to bed...

And, I love all of the squares that everyone has posted so far! The variety is impressive (and inspiring!). Keep up the great work!

Ooooh! That dress is neat! I couldn't wear it, sadly, but I love it! I added it to the list in the starting post.

And, according to Merriam-Webster's Online Dictionary:

"motif
Pronunciation:
\mō-ˈtēf\
Function:
noun
Etymology:
French, motive, motif, from Middle French more at motive
Date:
1848
1: a usually recurring salient thematic element (as in the arts) ; especially : a dominant idea or central theme
2: a single or repeated design or color"

So... a Franken-motif would be fine! It falls into the "single design" category Wink

Bummer! Hopefully you can find something at another library. Or, as someone else mentioned, find a good granny square online site- a lot of squares have really cool motifs at the center...

This one for example:

Is anyone else thinking of making a few of them up on the fly?  Kind of a symmetrical free-form thing?

Sounds like fun. Cheesy

Ooooh! I hadn't thought of that! Maybe I could toss one in as an extra...

from personal experience if you use a saw of any sort, you'll want to make sure you keep the record cooled with a mist of water or a nice fan, otherwise the blade tends to just melt it. I remember reading to use the kitchen type shears and cut while hot.  also read another place to score deeply and then break like you would if you were cutting glass. 

Thanks! I was wondering about the last 2 methods (I figured a saw would be too messy and jagged-y). I'll have to give it a go!
