  1. It's beautiful! I still haven't attempted broomstick lace, but I think it's gorgeous. However, when I first looked at it, the shawl looked like your bed was wearing a thong.
  2. You did a great job! You should be proud of your first finish!
  3. I'm in! I'm working on one right now but don't have very much done. I need some motivation.
  4. I didn't get a lot done this week, but I didn't buy any either. So, WTD = +3. YTD = -9.
  5. I used up one skein this week but just bought four more today because I started two new projects. I so want to be in the positive. My WTD score is -6. My YTD score is -12. This does not bode well for me.
  6. I've started a Round Ripple for Project Linus. The purple is much richer in real life. I love this pattern! Everyone here inspired me to start this. I love seeing the color choices you guys have made!
  7. This is my dog Rupert modeling my scarf. I used the ScarfTrio - Two Tone Scarf pattern from Crochet Pattern Central
  8. I finished all six tote bags for Christmas, but I didn't get pictures of all of them. I made them 3 pocket totes so that I could get them done on time. Here are the pics I did get: For my mom: For my great aunt: For my grandma: For my grandmother-in-law: The pics I don't have are my mother-in-law's, which is black and trimmed in fluffy green yarn (inspired by the musical Wicked) and my stepmother-in-laws, which is buff and blue.
  9. My total for the week was -6. That's okay...I'm not going shopping for a while.
  10. Mannequin heads creep me out. I hate opening pictures with them modeling things. I love seeing the product on real people. <Shrug>. Just my preference.
  11. Sigh. I used up one skein making squares for the Warm Up America Crochet Along. Then I started my two afghans and had to buy yarn to make sure I had enough to finish. So now I'm at -8. But being part of the stashbusting group here did keep me from buying any more yarn than I absolutely had to have. My husband loves you guys.
  12. I have an entire drawer of stash Simply Soft and I would love to help!
  13. I'm in! I just organized all of my stash last night and grouped some together to make afghans! My husband will be happy because yarn has taken over our house.
  14. I think it's beautiful! I love the pattern.
  15. I would like to add that I had no luck finding it on ebay.
  16. Hello, ladies! I have five of my six totes done (except the lining - that will be one long weekend of work). When I finish the last one, I'll post pics of all of them! I love seeing everyone's work! All of the totes look great and I love seeing the color combinations everyone has come up with.
  17. Does anyone know where I can buy a copy of the French magazine Ewa Crochet, issue 14? There is a long vest (pattern 29) that I would love to make in that issue.

    Sage Mary Afghan

    Your afghan is gorgeous. What a nice way to remember someone you loved.
  19. I am so glad you mentioned this movie because my friend (Michael Brown) did the sound effects for it!
  20. The book is really good. He had led a very odd life.

    Drops Purse

    It took a little more time than I expected it to because of all of the popcorn stitches. If I would have worked on only it, probably a few days? I need to start keeping track of hours.
  22. I followed the pictures instead of the written pattern until I got the hang of it. I had started one previously, but messed it all up so it's never going to get finished. The homespun was a bit of a pain to work with at first, but it's so soft and cozy that I like it.
  23. This is my first Seraphina. I used Homespun Quartz. It's for my grandmother-in-law for Christmas. It was so much fun to make that I see what it is so popular!
