  1. That square one is so clever, if it's the one I think it is. I've made it and was quite surprised that it turned out the way they said it would, I was sure it would be a mess. :)

    Stunning, just stunning! Lovely pattern. :)

    Dragon lamp

    Oooh, what a tremendous amount of work that is! Very nice. :)
  4. Good work there! Very attractive. Hope it saves the rest of your piano bench upholstery!

    Heirloom Afghans

    That's a huge amount of work. I don't care for piecing squares together either, and have avoided that ever since I did one afghan many years (decades!) ago. You did a good job and how lucky that all the yarn came to you... what do you think would have happened if it had gone to one of your sisters? ;)
  6. Scrap yarn ghans for *animal shelters*? Wow, I never thought of that. I could do it too. At last I could use up some of the smaller leftovers. Great idea... :)

    Throw from square

    Very attractive! I'm not sure my stash could yield anything so nice. :)
  8. Gosh that is pretty!
  9. Very nice basket! The instructions you give are the ones I've used for making many flat round mats and bag bases. The marker yarn is a good trick too. I'm considering a bag or basket for plastic magnetic letters for the grandbaby - so we can store those things somewhere besides the front of my fridge!

    Simple Doily

    Well, that's pretty! Thread is so different. I have done a few things, but most were not very satisfactory. But some people love it and are able to work so well with it. Wish I had that skill, but ... not in this life!
  11. *I* am very impressed. Not only are they useful, they are attractive, they are made with love. What's not to like! For sure boucle yarn is awful to frog, both knit and crochet, fuzzy boucle is worse. Better be careful and do it just right the first time.
  12. Very clever. My daughter-in-law would love it.
  13. Looks good to me! Cheerful and bright. Happy colors.
  14. That's very cute. I was thinking about making some sort of Easter basket thing, but never got to it. Lazy me!
  15. This post is really late, but I do want to say: this is wonderful!
  16. That is very cute! And it shoudl stay in place nicely with all that ruffle.
  17. Thanks for posting the picture, these may be exactly what I need - I'm wanting legwarmers for night/bed - for an old person... and I don't want them to "ride up". I can probably make them taller and they'll work a treat.
  18. This is an excellent idea! Thanks for posting the link to the pattern and for showing all your wonderful variations, bet they're very popular. Are they given to men as well? I'd think camo would be the very thing, but could be way off base with that.

    200 Scarf

    Really? You had tails? I use the tails as part of the fringe. I hate weaving in!
  20. That's just beautiful and will be an heirloom! Takes a lot of skill to make something like that.
  21. Wow, that's a pretty thing. Never saw anything like it, and may have to try making one. You did great with the colors.

    200 Scarf

    Nice! I like making scarves this way, from end to end. Then there aren't any "tails" to weave in!
  23. Good job! I make something similar to this. THey're not quite hats, but they keep the chill off my ears and I like that.
  24. What an excellent idea! I have a neighbor whose cat is always on the back of the couch, and I hear complaints about cat fur. Maybe I can figure out a good color scheme and make one of these for her! Now we need a picture of *the cat* on the cat runner.
