    Boxing Day 2018 (any charity projects)

    Hello again, so first of all, wow, I loved the report on the doll items at the high school. While we all enjoy our craft, we love it even more when someone else enjoys it. I have loved the double benefit of the high school program ever since I heard about it here. I really do need to take a shot at a doll outfit. They look addicting. I believe at the start of the year, someone suggested a "starter" pattern. I will have to scroll back and look. Darski, I love the little antler hat. It is going to make that little girl so happy and make her feel special. It is already over-the-moon cute on the stuffed animal. It's going to be even better on a child. And I like that bead stitch hat. It is a "must try". As for me, 2018 was just the worst for me and getting fun stuff done. Work has sucked the life out of me because of our software transition (we convert the payroll software at the end of the month, so I am just hoping to get paid). I feel like the whole year I have been a day late and a dollar short. I think the new year is going to have an impact on me this time around because while I know we can make a clean start any day by just deciding to do so, it does feel more like a new beginning when the year starts fresh. I came back from my vacation and ended up with a sinus infection so bad that I landed in the hospital. So again, lost days at work and was too sick to even crochet. My brother is in town for a few days. Tonight we are going to watch his Capitals on TV, so I hope to get a hockey hat done!! I will happily open a new charity thread on the 26th and we can all rally around each other again!

    Love the bonnet Darski. I am currently on vacation. I was visiting my cousin in Sheboygan and he and my brother were fun enough to take my to the LYS and I spent some hard earned money on some fun yarn. Tomorrow is the Packers game. It's very cold and it even snowed yesterday. I have not seen snow since college so it was fun. But today is windy so I need my warm hat more than ever. I was getting ready to go out today and could not find it. Searched everywhere. I found it this morning. It spent the night out in the snow!!

    Love the sunshine-y blanket Darski. I have not picked up a crochet hook in 3 weeks. There is definitely something wrong with me! I am glad to see that you have been carrying on here without me.

    That is a lovely scarf Darski. I bought some of that Ombré yarn but have not had a chance to work with it yet. My crocheting has pretty much come to a halt while I am dealing with issues at work. I also have some quilting "work" (stuff I do for other people) that needs to get done. I do have a cat mat done and one in progress from football-watching time. I haven't actually had the pleasure of sitting to watch a hockey game, so no hockey hats yet! And now I have two dear friends in hospital, so I hope to get some visits in, and keep my rescue commitments for the next few days. I think it will be a lot to manage this weekend. Keep your fingers crossed for me. In case you are wondering, yes, it is 1:50am. I worked traffic detail for the Cardinals game last night and I'm too keyed up to sleep. Lol, maybe I need a nice, short chat with Mr Jack Daniels. Keep up all of the good work ladies. I was hoping to see some of those little birds nests this year, but I think Linda makes those and her plate Is quite full. I was scrolling back and got to fall in love with the doll clothes, and adore the mini stockings and try to pick a favorite lap ghan. We've actually done a lot this year so far!!!

    Wow, thanks for all of the pictures. It seems like it should have taken more than a year to get all of those adorable outfits together. Every time I thought I saw my favorite, I kept scrolling and it was too hard to pick a favorite!! Brenda where do your scarves go? They look really soft. I have three more beds going to the shelter tomorrow. Sunshine decided to test them.

    Wow, they are all so cute. I don't remember seeing the white dress with the ruffles. That is adorable. Sorry that I have been MIA lately. I have been working some overtime. Tuesday I worked my regular job and then worked overtime as traffic control for a Coyotes game. Wednesday I worked all day and then did traffic control for a Beyoncé concert. I am basically the person who changes the lights to try to get traffic moving. It was exhausting to work back to back events. I'll have to wait for my paycheck before I let you know if it was worth it. It will be nice to relax and watch some football and crochet on Sunday!

    Hi everyone. I was caught off guard by this format change. When I try to post, as soon as I start typing in the reply box, my previous post pops up. So I have to sit and backspace through the whole message. Anyone else have that happen? I am on an iPad. Sorry to hear that you slipped Darski, that must have been scary. But your work continues to be beautiful. I made a swatch of the start of your modified granny's square. It was very easy and I just love the look. I have not done much since I finished the last baby blanket. Mostly some dishcloths for family. Nothing special. I am in a bit of a rut. I know it happens to everyone.

    Darski, love the set. There is something about it that makes me think of the 50's. I also have had that special granny's sqaure blanket on my mind. You did one a few months ago and thought I might be able to figure out the pattern from the picture. Now you've used it again and I still love it. My blanket is done. The border corners are not perfect but I like it. It's about 30" square. Not sure where it's going yet. Thanks again to Mona. Now I have 2 and 2/3 skeins left. I will probably do a center out blanket so I can't be short again! A grannys square or some variation. v

    Bailey, that Mary Maxim pattern is so cute. Like the little poncho or whatever you call that. I'll bet you will want to make that outfit again!

    Ooh Brenda, I like the C2C. My friend told me that she read that the decrease stitches actually take more yarn than the increase. Isn't that crazy? I'm sure somebody did the math. Darski, love the cocoon. And the little mitts are precious, but just thinking about tiny yarn and a tiny hook....! I did finish the C2C I was working on thanks to Mona. I still can't figure out how it was that far off. Anyway, I am meeting with a crochet friend IRL next Saturday and she's going to show me how to do a border.

    Hmm, I just can't seem to finish this blanket. I started the decrease on the row that was in progress when I added the new skein. But I'm not even close to finishing with the 2nd skein. Dang good thing that Mona sent me more than one! This seems really off! I wonder if the skein was actually shorted.

    Did I mention that our own Mona, Greyhoundgramdma had the yarn I needed to finish my blanket. She not only sent me the skein I needed, but also sent 3 more that I didn't know I needed. I have not tried that baby jacked since I made that first one....maybe I will dig that pattern out! Anyway, it's been great to be working on the decrease side now. Thanks Mona!!

    Darski, I had a blue blanket worked in the round that turned out that way. Whe I folded it I half, it looked like a fortune cookie! You have to remember that just because the pattern designer liked it that way...you don't have to. Also keep your target audience in mind. Kids! They will get a cute blanket and outfit and will probably be over the moon. But, You seem to be very proud of your projects and you have a nack for workarounds. If it bothers you, take it out!! Sorry...that is not much help. But I do love the color choices for the orange blankets!
