  1. That pattern shows off this gorgeous yarn to its best advantage. Beautiful job! ~L
  2. I LOVE this frog!!! I am making a lily pond blanket for my sister-in-law for her baby shower, and was thinking I should make a frog to go with it, so I NEED to know when your pattern goes into your shop. Another great job! ~L
  3. Very beautiful, and I like the colour combinations! I think you managed a purple-pink look in a VERY adult way! ~L
  4. Or make a bunch for an advent calendar....mmmmmm yummy little chocolate filled stockings:P They look very good, by the way...will be neat to see the pattern for them! ~L
  5. Salos; I just try to buy wool at good prices whenever I can. The wool I'm using for this project is Bernat wool that I bought at a tent sale at their manufacturing site, but I find it to be reasonably priced anyway.
  6. The pattern of the day at Annie's Attic http://www.anniesattic.com/free_pattern_day/index.html for Sept 2, 2006 would be great for Afghans for Afghans 900 Sweater or Vests for Children campaign http://www.afghansforafghans.org/900kids.html Just wanted to put in an extra push for this great cause! Bucky

  8. Great job...I LOVE the pirates you put on it!! And another ringing endorsement for that bag...I have made 2 this summer already for gifts, and they are BEAUTIFUL! I just have to get one made for *me* LOL!! ~L
  9. That is a really pretty colour!!! Very suitable for your little beauty! I made that halter for my dd last summer, and I think I will steal your flower idea as hers is a little risque in the cleavage area LOL!! ~L

    Granny Squares

    Here is the most basic granny square http://www.jpfun.com/patterns/01granny/grannysquare.shtml Have fun! L
  12. Hollier...Here is a link to the Country Button Square http://westwood.fortunecity.com/millen/681/crochetarchive.html#Country%20Button%20Square As you can see it is very solid! Yelutci...Thanx for the encouragement. I am now SOOOO excited to get this started. I saw this type of design in a knit blanket once, and have been looking for something similar in crochet squares for a while now! And to all...I have decided to go with the hopscotch square http://www.spatulagraphics.com/krochet/patterns/hopgrn.html I am going to add 2 rounds to make it the same as the original pattern, and I am going to do row 5 in row 6 (I think...still working that out ) where the solid darker colour in the IQ blanket pattern is. After doing a test with just the WW I had lying around, I actually found this square is fairly lightweight. I forgot how heavy all those 3dc clusters can make things!! I actually used a LOT less yarn!!! BTW, I found all the links to these squares on Bevs Country Cottage web site http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/grannies.html L:hook
  13. Thanks, soar...maybe if I can find a finer weight yarn in the right colours I'll give that a try! L
  14. I could do that, but then it would be a much smaller blanket. I am doing it in very non-baby colours (light blue, dark blue and orange...her favourite colours!!), so I think that if I make it with the hole-y squares, she can just not use it right away if she is worried about little fingers getting caught. Thanks for the thought though...I never thought about making it with thinner yarn! L
  15. I have found the perfect idea for a baby blanket for a friend of mine's baby to be. It is based on this pattern http://www.dustbunnies.com/Crochet/afghans/iqafghan.htm but with different colours. The square that they use is a basic granny with 3dc in the ch1's from the row below, so it is fairly hole-y. Now, my kids slept with that type of crochet blanket all the time because we have so many around the house from dmil, and I think they're fine, but I'm not sure about other moms. I used to make a lot of the Country Button granny when I was doing squares for charity, and it is much more solid, of course, but would it be just roasting for the babe? TIA for any advice! L
