I've used carrying the thread before. I was making a black and white project.. and an orange and something... but I don't recall what they were. it's a nice technique though. Btw, alwaysinmyroom, I've finished one small thing for you, the same night I finished the hat for you know who. I haven't made your kitty toys yet though. I'll do that very soon. Smiley Right now I'm inspecting my lovely thrift store find... I got a jewelry box that stands up, and it has 4 drawers, a mirror in a glass panel doored compartment, and a top with sections and places for rings, a GREAT buy for me, 5.00 but the lining is spotted and gross and falling off in some places. So guess what my new project to add to my list is? Wink

Alwaysinmyroom-The tutorial I used he showed to join in the new color, then cut off the first color. So that's what I did every single row. So every row has ends to be woven in!! I've done some of them...Is there any easier way? I'm new to "real" crocheting!

ARe you weaving in your ends with a yarn needle, or a crochet hook? I use a crochet hook because I find it easier.

Also- heres a tutorial that shows a fairly simple way to weave ends with a yarn needle. http://crochet.about.com/library/bl_weave_ends.htm
I get that weaving can get pretty time consuming though..

  I am presently at the  TRY-ON BEFORE KNITTING Sleeves of my sweater.
As much as I love it so far, Either I need to go on a diet, Or my daughter is gettin it! And due to the fact that I can't make 2 of the same thing... because that would be boring..I'm just a little dissappointed... Not that it won't fit, but I wanted more looseness in it. It is supposed to lay open down the front about 2 inches, what I have now looks more like 4 inches. BUT, otherwise, I am pleased. And, since there was no pattern exactly, I took info from several old patterns.
Won't be long... this one will be done soon, and I'll be on to something else.
At the same time, I've been doing a cross-stitch that I rescued from the thrift. There was no floss. Thanks to my huge supply of floss, 3/4 of it from a thrift-store-score, I'm well underway with it. However... I find that if mom is anywhere around, she can never stop talking, so I've been constantly having to correct stitches. You know... there is a reason it's called "Counted Cross Stitch"!LOL!

lol--I hate it when people yabber at me and I am trying to count...I am doing the all boards craftalong and totally forgot about cross stitch---it has been years, but I bet I can get back to it...

A sweater---geeze...I have one sleeve done for about five years now...can't wait to see it--I would have no clue how to even start without a pattern but I think I need to move beyone the scarf and hat stage in both knitting and crochet...

ariethine--the old jewelry box will be a great project!! I would look at the shrines that are on here and make it look like one of those....only bigger, of course!

I will be mailing out your package tomorrow...I needed to de-stash so some of it is coming to you--ha ha--yes, I am cheating, sorry, but it will be your job to de-stash it now...ha ha ha

What I need to do is finish cleaning my living room. And then I think I need to make my WIP triangle fold coaster I was making. I didn't put it in my list of 50, but it's on my UFO list in the other craftalong. I've only sewn up one, although I had cut, folded and pressed for two. Oh well. So close to being done.
As for the next on my 50 list... I'm not really sure. I've been wanting to make a ferret cuddle sling (an add on to my list). I think that might be it. But I usually just sit and stare at my list until something pops out. Tongue

I wish I could brave a sweater that wasn't for a doll or a baby/kid. Good luck, want to see pictures when your all done too.

Casey1201- i think your stethoscope bag is cute.  

princessacademy- Remember it's your first baby afghan, you'll always remember your first one. Plus they'll only get better.

I finished my Afghan that was in progress. I used some stash supplies and then some. I hated that I needed to buy more since I was trying to destash. I used Red Heart acrylic yarn. Hope it gets softer after a few washes, its not right now. So now I can check this off my list:

Final product ready to be given to my grandparents.

Two of my favorite squares. I think its the color combos. Cheesy

Now that it's finished I have to get started on the other 49+ things on my list. Yay!

That's a lovely afghan! The one I made had to be mended after washing.
It was also red-heart yarn. I wasn't happy with the pilling I got from washing it. So... I caution you to use a tumbler-style washer, and don't put anything with it. Plus plenty of fabric softener, and dry it on medium , only till JUST dry. 20-30 minutes max.
But, it looks like you did a fine job joining your pieces!
And, I really love the bright colors!
As for the sweater... I just discovered I had not matched my stitch count going up the front. One side of crochet edging had too many loops. SO... I am about to sit down and fix it. I thought I'd get the edging done before doing the sleeves. Just to break up the project and get a little immediate gratification! There will be photos... I'll post some progress pics soon.
