    15 projects in 15 days CAL

    I love the idea of a CAL as an incentive to FINISHING some projects! I think I'm just going to list a few things here, rather than 15, though I may edit it later. I started a New Year's project on December 31st and that is an afghan for my 11 year old daughter, Jessica. I actually am "killing two birds with one stone" as this afghan will serve two purposes. The first obviously being that my 2nd child will have her own "momma made this" afghan like her older sister does. But the second purpose is to fulfill my desire to try a ripple afghan. I've NEVER done one though I've been thinking of them over the past few months. A second project I started last month was an afghan for my bed...I crocheted a 12" square in a beautiful pattern called "Crown Jewels" which I found over on Ravelry. It turned out beautifully. I don't have enough of the gray yarn to make the entire afghan in it, but I'll make some white squares, too. I'll post pictures on my blog tonight of the two new projects. I think my other 13 projects will be those projects on my right sidebar on my blog.

    2012 Bernat Mystery CAL and KAL

    I missed the CAL, but it's so great coming in after it's over, because then I get the benefit of seeing all your wonderful afghans and the colors you used, not to mention the pattern in full! Now I'm interested in making this afghan and knowing in advance what color I'm going to use and where the colors will be placed! Great job, everyone who participated and left pics for us to admire!

    Flower Embellishment

    Those flowers are so pretty! I've already made a link to your blog post on my blog! Thank you for pointing it out to us! I love flowers!
  4. That is very pretty, like you said! It looks relatively easy to replicate. I would imagine that for each foot accessory (what IS this called, after all?) that a very long chain is made. Then it is folded in half, placing a toe at the halfway point. Then with the chain wrapped around the toe and coming back up over your foot, you can determine where to start your "leaf". I imagine it will be crocheted down one side, to the toe loop, sl st in the chains of the toe loop (or skip them, sl st into the chain further up the chain where you want to start the leaves on the next side) and resume crocheting one side of the leaf pattern up the other side of the foot. Then when you have the same amount of half-leaves on the second side, you'd come back down that chain on the opposite side of the half-leaves just crocheted, crocheting their other half, back down to the toe loop and then back up the other side to finish completing the other half leaves you started with. The leaves are probably formed with a sc, hdc, 3 dc, hdc, sc, or some similar pattern of stitches. I know that is probably clear as mud when I write it out, but if you've crocheted for awhile (vs someone who just learned), then you could probably make it as you go. I'd be willing to give it a try. Oh, yeah, they're called "barefoot sandals".

    Anyone here in Georgia?

    Hi, everyone! It's been quite awhile since I've been on this board, but I miss you all! I updated this thread of all the GA crocheters, so feel free to see if your name is included and that all info is correct. If you have a blog you want me to link to, just let me know what it is and I'll link it to your username here on the thread. It's great to see all you Georgia Peaches!

    City Cat Bookmarker Pattern

    Okay, I'm missing something. I have tried twice to make this, but I keep stopping at the same place. After making the second ear and then finishing the stitches into the loop, I get through the "sl st into next 2 dc" but I am now at the first leg that had been created when I feel I should be on the other side of the first ear. After sl st into 2 dc after creating the 2nd ear, where do I get the next 4 sc to crochet into? "sc in next 4 dc, turn, ..." Am I supposed to go around behind the first leg made earlier to end up on the other side of the first ear? Goodness, I hope this is clearer than mud. Can anyone advise me as to what I'm misunderstanding? I'd love to make these.

    2009 Holiday RAOK's - thank you's

    Thank you to the Elf who shares my initial and sent me some monogrammed goodies! Notepad, journal, and a keyring! She also sent stickers. I feel like I'm missing something ... I believe you also sent the bookmark with the angel charm on it. My children enjoy my goodies, too, but I hope I remembered to thank you for everything! This package actually came last week, but I had to figure out what Swap this package was for or if it was for Crochetville's RAOK. Ya'll remember to write Crochetville RAOK on your packages so we can thank you quickly! I did send my Elf a personal snail mail thank you, and she let me know what the goodies were for. I felt so badly that I couldn't get a thank you to her the same day I received her puffy. Thank you again, Elf, for the wonderful treats! I hope you have a Merry Christmas!

    A Ribbon Runs Thru It Bookmark (3 images)

    Thank you for sharing this pattern. Like someone else said, it's so simple and makes a great present or a little something special to put inside a Christmas card, birthday card, or even just to include with a letter! I look forward to making quite a few of these - they'll make great RAOKs! Thank you again!

    Hi, Laurie! In case you haven't seen the thread yet, there is a Georgia thread here.

    Wow, like Karla in Tucker said "There are lots of Georgians here!" And look! Two "Karla"s too! Hi, Karla! You'll have to give me you last initial so that we can differentiate ourselves here. Please don't tell me it's a "C" also like mine! Welcome to Megs, SmittenKitten, MarleenCrochets and anyone else I might have missed!
