  1. It did - it's here now! Sorry for using another name. It's been so long I couldn't remember my password. And the password reset tool just sent me new passwords that didn't work
  2. Thanks for the suggestions! I like the pillow idea, but my livingroom is all navy, so the ecru is a bit bright for it. I'll keep hunting. I've got it all wound up now and waiting
  3. Just lovely
  4. Thanks judianne. I wish I had more people I needed to make gifts for, those would make marvelous presents. Sadly, it'd only work for my mom...and her sister spins and knits, so she's sure to handmake something for her as well.
  5. How cute
  6. What a perfect gift
  7. Wow, I really like how that turned out
  8. I've moved since the last time I posted here, so I thought I'd update. I'm now in West Allis near 60th and Lincoln
  9. I was digging through my supplies looking for the yarn I set aside for a quilted afghan, when I came across a sealed bag full of 10 1.76oz skeins of moda dea aerie in ecru. Something must be done about this waste at once! What would you make with this microfiber yarn??
  10. I've started crocheting again, but since I'm on a frugal kick I'm only using yarn out of my stash. I thought I'd try projects to help me keep warm with my new lower thermostat setting. I started with a shawl and will probably do an afghan next (I actually have yarn set aside for a quilt style afghan). This one used the nicest yarn I ever bought. I had squirreled it away for a project like this. This is a bottom up granny shawl made with knit picks andean silk (alpaca, silk, wool blend) in chocolate with an L hook. I used all 7 skeins I came out to a perfect 65x32. I'm wearing it now and it really is nice and warm! Thanks to DreamsOfYarn for pointing me to the pattern.
  11. Gorgeous! I'm working on one of those too...but with so many tiny pieces and so much may be many a year before it is
  12. I got a good foot done of the granny using a K and knit picks andean silk in chocolate. It's starting to become obvious that 7 won't be enough. I'm think I may finish and see how far it gets me. I'll probably end up frogging and maybe using a bigger hook? If it doesn't look close I can try using a different kind of yarn, I just had my heart set on finally using this. *sigh*
  13. Thanks for all the help. I got it working on another computer. Wow that looks perfect to make with the rest of my yarn. Thanks to both of you, those were exactly what I was looking for. Hopefully I can report back soon with finished items. I'm starting the granny in wool now
  14. Thank you DreamsOfYarn! I love the bottom up idea, that way if I run out of wool I can pretend I made it a little smaller on purpose rshseaeagle, for some reason that's not opening for me...I'll try again when I get home. I'm definately going to be making more than one though, so I'll need the extra patterns
  15. Wow...that turned out really well
