    My First Wool Eater

    Actually once you get past the first round, it's really simple. I'm sure you could do it! Colleen

    My First Wool Eater

    It's actually called the Wool Eater --and yes you do go thru a lot of yarn! By the time I finished, I could only get two rounds out of an entire skein of yarn. It weighs a lot!

    My First Wool Eater

    Thanks, everyone, for the wonderful comments! The pattern is by a lady named Sarah London and she posts it on her blog for free. http://sarahlondon.wordpress.com/2009/08/25/wool-eater-instructions/. She also has amazing patterns for sale on her site as well. I'm looking pretty hard at the squiggles pattern too! Colleen

    Carrying or moving yarn along

    Ok, this can be pretty easy to do actually. As you turn, just incorporate your turning stitch around you offcast color and then leave it hang. That'll put it pretty close to where it needs to be when you return there and need to change colors. It won't be obvious, like a loop, and if you're putting any kind of edge trim on the blanket later, it'll be totally covered up. I've done this quite a few times and I really like not having all those ends from color changes. I hope I haven't confused you too much! Colleen
  8. Very very nice! Mine sits about 3/4 finished, glaring at me from the corner of my living room, rolled up in my favorite crochet bag. It hates me. I really gotta make nice with it and get it finished. Colleen

    In the rough

    I don't know if a scent-free Downey exists, but as a mom of a kid on the sprectrum, sometimes scents can be a problem too. Shoot for unscented if you can find it! Colleen
  10. I have flown both internationally and domestic the past couple years without any problems about my aluminum crochet hooks. I carry a small nail clipper instead of scissors for cutting yarn. No problem with that either. Have fun! :hookColleen

    Great Gramma's Memory 'ghan

    How wonderful that you were able to finish it! My grandmother left me an unfinished blanket with my name on it and instructions to finish it. Almost 9 years ago and I still can't bear to open the box......I'm afraid it would just be full of tears and snot by the time I got it done and no one wants to see that! :hookColleen
