    Cotillion Doily

    I had an urge to make a doily after finishing the bookmark. I found my iron, so I blocked it, although I think I have a bit to learn still because bits of it (that I see now, in the picture) aren't laying right. The slip stitch on that center dc round is bugging me (the hole) but I'm not sure how to fix that?? I'm very excited because my gauge is right on ... I've NEVER been right on with yarn, ever, so I'm pretty happy about that. Anyway, more details on my blog at this entry for those interested.

    Gift Doily

    Baaaaah humbug! I am very frustrated - - it's too big, I'm not sure I'm doing the picots correctly, and the middle is all messy. I just couldn't seem to get my stitches even this time for some reason. I've improved a bit since the first one but I guess I'm too much of a perfectionist because I'm just not happy with it!! I guess I should be happy that my connecting stitches don't show, that's something ...

    Ripple baby blanket

    This started out as a commission from a friend for her niece, but when dh saw it, he wanted me to give it to his cousin's new baby daughter! (The gal who commissioned it didn't want so much lavendar, so it works out well, I'm just going to make another for her, reversing the pink/lavendar stripes.) Sorry about all the threads - I just haven't woven them in yet. I love the way this came out though!
  4. And buttons (if needed) as opposed to velcro fasteners. Wanting to make some winter clothes for dd's barbie ...

    Stole Swap: They Should Be in the Mail!

    Debbie (whitedtu) did you get your stole? It was mailed a few weeks ago.
  6. I received a nice package from Norma while I was out of town! I'm still trying to get caught up with everything and will post a picture as soon as I have a minute.

    Debbie, that would be me, I just keep forgetting to mail it. I'll drop it off at the post office tomorrow after I take the kids to school! Sorry about that!

    Cotton Bath Puff

    Another thing you could do would be to do a strand each of the crochet cotton (or two of that even) and ktichen cotton - it gives you just a hair more texture than the yarn but not as much as the crochet cotton. I really want to make myself a bath poof out of crochet cotton - sometimes the mesh ones are too rough and the older I get the more sensitive my skin gets - but so far I haven't. Why is it we never seem to get to projects for ourselves? LOL

    Blanket Bonanza

    That's wonderful! What a pretty kitty, too!
  19. I got a couple of fabulous scarves from Kathy (nittany168)! They were waiting for me in my mailbox when we got back from our trip Tuesday night! I have a couple of pictures (finally have my camera back! woohoooooo!) but haven't loaded them onto dh's computer yet - one is a light green and the other is light green with a cool ladder type yarn (she sent me the labels but I'm blanking on what they are - ugh, I know I'm awful). They're both pretty! Will post pictures later! Thanks, Kathy!

    Quick thread projects

    The lip balm keychain is a great idea - I love the yarn ones but my chapstick never seems to stay in it. Maybe thread will work better! And I LOVE the bookmark, too! Makes me want to take up thread again.
