  1. If there was just a "slight" difference I wouldn't be looking at all---- Real teal is about 12 shades darker it just wouldn't look right
  2. need a skein to use as accent on some baby things . Finished the blanket months ago, but my son announced last week that I will be a grandma next year ,so I'd like to make a set. willing to pay postage and yarn costs have paypal if that works better than a check Thanks!!
  3. I see everyone has been busy . Great work - we're keeping the yarn companys in business here are my latest: Peppermint Throw ( Red Heart via Crochet Crowd ) using up the Christmas Yarn( but not Quite) My new favorite way to do Hexagons- this is actually the African Flower ,but the Varigated nixes the contrast- lesson learned and l;ast but not least a good ole scrap granny 3 more on my hook- and I really need to finished my WIP scarves
  4. I am loving everyones work here is what I have been working on Went thru my patterns cleaned out a bunch that no longer interest me but I found this gem Someone posted the granny spool afghan , I got a copy and started making centers- foune that I had t colorways so I made 3 baby size rather than one big one and lastly some pinwheel action! I have two more in pieces and another ready to start( when I finish one of these
  5. wow everyone has been busy- lots of pretty stuff i have been as well-- busy that is crochet crowd challenge it is a scarf pattern- I made 5 and attached them lapghan size turtles two soccerball 'ghans:: the pattern called for a rolled edge, but when I followed the pattern the whole thing rolled- I could have stuffed it and made a pillow!!! so I just made a flat border. Re-did the edge for the second and got a "flat" rolled edge I then started the 10 stitch that someone posted here( in tunisian - sc and I don't get along) but rememberd that I had 2 daisy afghans half finished so here is the first of them one more to put together and then on to some new ones
  6. This one is from the Crochet crowd challenge mentioned above Not the 40" square they wanted but I can't do the same repeat pattern for that long and get it done in a reasonable amount of time so I settled for 32 " square
  7. I love looking at everyones projects finally getting around to posting this baby 'ghan using campygirl's turtle square I have another larger one( with more turtles) in the works, plus 2 soccer ball afghans and a "baby "ghan for the Crochet crowd Spring Challenge http://www.thecrochetcrowd.com/en/newchallenges/1592-springsprung.html eventually they will all get finished
  8. I'm a little late, but I think these are great-and I'm not much on ripples-- is there a link to the pattern available???

    Dr Who

    My Daughter in law wanted a Dr who scarf but I don't knit . I wasn't too enamored of knooking and was about to ebay my books and hooks but I'm glad I didn't. 10 feet of garter stitch It still takes almost as long as knitting, which is why I quit knitting so i probably won't do much, but I'm keeping my hooks just in case
  10. I got ratherv distracted last year, but I am back with a new charity to crochet for. I will be making baby blankets and kidghans( among other things) for Primary Childrens Hospital in Salt Lake City. Purple Hearts Creme Sandwich Cookie party ( sorry I can't seem to get this one to turn) Wild and Pink
  11. Got my square from Skoggy on Saturday-- 11 days from England not too bad love the color and ILTY is sooo yummy thanks !!!
  12. thanks ! for got to say that I am happy to pay postage
  13. found topic can be closed-- I can't figure out how to edit the topic
