  1. Wow, that's a lot of scarves! Good for you and all who did them. They are soooo pretty! .
  2. Ann: The scarf is adorable You did great. I'll work on more squares when I can and will add some Mickey pals also. Just wasn't thinking of the age group so thought we were dealing with 6 and over. Duh! Don't know where my brain was......
  3. Ann: Finally finished. Phew. Going to have to take the bat off my list of ones to do. Machine ate the first square, then I knit another one, and it took forever to do the bat as the thread kept on breaking. It has to be the pattern. Anyways, on the way to you!
  4. But you are going to have to have a seam somewhere, perhaps at the neck? This is what I wasn't sure about. Didn't know if it would be better to have you crochet the scarf and then add the squares to the bottom of it perhaps with a slip-stitch (it's stronger) joining or attach the squares and crochet up half each side and join at the neck. If it was knit, I would do a kitchener stitch or mattress stitch to join, so wasn't sure how you were going to do it?
  5. Thanks. I looked at your blog also! WOW! That Aztec blanket is gorgeous and I love the squares. I'm still doing "flat" squares. I've done the fisherman's ring twice, but it comes out backwards? LOL I crochet left-handed so I'm not sure if that is the reason so I went back to flat squares.
  6. You are not an idiot! To clarify, the square is knit and then I machine-embroider (similar to a sewing machine) on to it. It's a great way of adding detail into a hand-knit without doing intarsia. Intarsia is also called color-work. All those bobbles of yarn and trying to keep them straight...phew! I've done it, but only small projects! LOL I actually started doing the embroidery on my new grandson's blanket as the squares I knit were 7" squares, but there wasn't enough space for me to do the names and dates I wanted to do, so I thought about it, and figured I would try to embroider t
  7. Why would you want a knitting machine? That square is hand knit , although there are days when I am knitting a sweater that I wonder if I should buy a knitting machine.
  8. Okay. I'll work on some over the next week or so. Have you decided HOW you are going to join the other square on the other side?
  9. My grandson is adorable (cee-cee pride there! LOL) I don't want to be called grandma so we agreed to be called ceecee. Square is in the mail. I took a picture, but will post later tonight. I would change a couple of things on it, but overall I think it will work. Let me know what you think when you get it!
  10. Yes exactly. Example, say you wanted to do a pink scarf, I would make the 6" square (it's the easiest for math for me! LOL) and it has 27 stitches. I would send the square to you and you would just join the yarn and start crocheting away. The top is finished and because of the bind-off technique I would use, it will look "almost" exactly like a single crochet, so pretty easy to just join and crochet. Let me know, and I'll work one up for you and send to you for you to try. Then you can post or pm me with your thoughts. Anyways, if you want to try, pm me your address and I'll work one up for yo
