    Holiday RAOK 2008 - Thank yous

    Let me start by saying I am so sorry this thank you is so late. I have been without internet for a while now. This is the first time I have been online in a long time. A huge thank you to the wonderful elf in MI for the wonderful box of goodies you sent me. I received a card, head pins, lobster claw clasps and 6 skeins of yarn. I have been wanting some of the Bernat Softee Chunky and can't find it here anymore. The head pins and lobster claw clasps will be used to make more stitch markers that I can send out as RAOKs. Thank you so very much for thinking of me. I deeply appreciate your thoughtfulness.

    Rockin' Reds Dude

    That is just too cute. When I saw the title of the thread I had to click it hoping it was something with the Cincinnati Reds, since I am also from SW Ohio!

    January 2009 C’Ville Tote

    I showed your latest creation to Nancy, and she loves it too. I send her pictures each month of them so she can see your beautiful bags too. I didn't bring my bag with me cause she has too many animals and I was afraid one of them might damage it. Eventually she will see mine in person to appreciate the beauty of it.

    Bumpy Textured Dishcloth-My First Written Pattern

    Thanks Ladies. The pattern is so versatile. It can be used for a dishcloth, hot pad or a potholder. I have used hook sizes from H up to K. Of course, the smaller the hook the thicker it will be. Have fun with it ladies Let me know how they turn out!

    The 12 scarves of 2009 - links and info in post #1

    I have about 20 or so in my personal collection. And I couldn't begin to say how many I have given as gifts, to different charities or been commissioned to make some for someone. Whenever I find yarn I like but haven't used, I buy a skein and make a scarf with it. Then I wear it for a while to see how it holds up. If it holds up with no fuzzing or pilling, I buy more to make something else with it. Quality control at it's finest

    The 12 scarves of 2009 - links and info in post #1

    Howdy Darski. I somehow missed this thread I love making scarves so I of course I am joining this CAL. I will probably use the birthstone colors for my scarves. I know, not very original, but my little pea brain seems to be missing the creative section lately. Guess the cold weather has frozen my creativity
