pjherbert, your square is very neatly stitched. It looks perfect. I like yellow.

Gatsby Girl, yours are really neat too. And your colors go nicely together.

Whew!  I finally finished my square.

I used an I hook and Vanna's Choice in Dusty Green.  The bottom looks a little wavy, but I can't figure out why.  I'm so happy I joined this CAL this is my first time making a square this large I can't wait for next months square. Hopefully I can get the edges right next time.

Your Vanna's Choice looks nice arosado!  I've been admiring the colors of her brand a lot.  Did you like working with it?

I'm working on a square and I don't like the thickness of the start/end of each row.  It's making one band of my spiral look a bit Barry Bondish!   Tongue  Are any of you noticing something like that in your squares, or is it just me?  I'm not noticing it in your pictures.

Well, this is what I decided to do;

Starting in row 3 on the 20th (last) *ch3, sc in next ch 3 sp*, I skip the last "...,sc in next ch 3 space" and go directly do the "Join with sl st in first sc." to complete the row.  Then I start the next row like it says.

I've only done up to row 10 and it's working great and I like that there's less bulk at the start/end of each row.

What do you think?

Yes Infinite Annie  I did notice the thick bit at the start of the row .seems not to show  so much once the squares finished though ? If I do another  ( or redo my sisters one below ) I'll try your way !

My sister has requested a specific colour scheme  ( green pink and white) so i did another january one and got my counting all wrong -with an extra space on the 4th side, tried a last minute save  by spreading out the same number of stitches in the make a square round (with less stitches per chain space ). Not sure if I can get away with it ?

This is my first time using the Vanna's Choice I love all of the colors, and it was on sale at Joanns for $2.99 a skein so I grabbed a couple.  It was really smooth to work with and it didn't tangle.  I usually have bad luck with LionBrand yarns.

I've been really liking the Vanna's Choice yarns ... I'll have to pick some of that up when I have a chance. I've been doing a couple of squares with Red Heart, and they seem to be coming out better than my Simply Soft squares. It could be that I'm finally getting the counting right, so I might redo those first two I did. Hmm ...

vanna's choice is my new favorite acrylic to work with. it is way softer than red heart and it doesn't have that sheen to it like simply soft. i don't like how simply soft is shiny like that!

I wish we had those yarns over here!

I live in a small town and I'm limited to what I can get my hands on craft supplies wise. it's driving me nuts! I guess I'm going to have to start ordering off the net for the good stuff.  I'm almost to the point of trying to learn to spin my own yarn.  Have been looking at the dog as a donor for yarn spinning. Everyone thinks I'm nuts, but I have looked in to it and I'm not the only one that has thought about this.
