  1. I've sold at one for going on 2 summers now - the things that sell best for me are washcloths, topped kitchen towels, and snoods/hats. Some of the ideas I read here are wonderful though and I think I'll have to try a few others next year...
  2. I didn't skip any for the thumb-hole, the rows start and stop where the rounds did.
  3. I like the look of that! I'm into hats and warm-weather stuff (we're awaiting our 3rd snow storm this season) and look forward to working this up!
  4. Thanks! My favorite thing about it is the "no-sew", 'cause I just hate dropping the hook to sew ends together...
  5. No one else has tested this pattern, but I took my time writing it down, so....

I hope you enjoy! If you make it, please post a picture so I can see it. Any corrections please let me know.
  6. Ya know, I tried that for one month... and didn't get anywhere. I just know of so many things people want that I can't seem to look past... Maybe for the Olympic Games... I made two pairs of those... one that keeps me warm, the others are decorative. ^_^
  7. Wow, seems like it was a mostly productive weekend for y'all. My edited list... Piano scarf for mother (need yarn yet) Finish frames doilies for g-ma 8 hacky-sacks for boys at church (3 finished!) 5 of 6 purses for the little girls at church garter for SIL wedding... ???? for sister ???? for SIL Christmas
  8. Is it too late to join? I've got a pretty good list, and I've not been active on line since August (being a preachers wife and public school teacher will kill online time) but would love to join this CAL... My list is... Piano scarf for mother (need yarn yet) Finish frames doilies for g-ma (95% done) 8 hacky-sacks for boys at church (15% done) 5 of 6 purses for the little girls at church garter for SIL wedding... ???? for sister ???? for SIL Christmas y'all who have gotten stuff completed! We're only 5 days into the month, so you're doing GREAT!
  9. Oh I absolutely loved it! Used it for my face this morning, actually.... Will get the photo uploaded soon (hopefully) but I need to get prepared for the storm headed our way, then headed out of town tomorrow... Thurs or Fri. and it should be up. Thanks again!
  10. Glad you like it! I got mine in the mail today!!! Pictures will come tomorrow (hopefully) as it's the most BEAUTIFUL thing I've seen! Definitely one to show off when guests come.. or use as a face cloth... not sure which one. Thank you!!!! It truly is lovely, the colors are AMAZING!
  11. Yippee!!!!!!
  12. I'd seen pictures all over the place and decided I wanted to try my hand at one. This one was gifted to a friend who just got married. What do you think? Front View Back View I'm kinda excited about it, as it's my own design. I have a problem with patterns... they turn out just like one someone else has already made.
  13. It did go fast... but that's actually part of the reason I joined this swap. Get the fun of the swapping without the long extended hours or high price. I'm looking forward to receiving the dishcloth! Yay!!! Feels like you need a hug, so...
  14. LoL, you sound like me! I'm always forgetting things. :-)
  15. Hahaha! Mine's more the LYS.... Yours is in the mail! Yeeehaaawwww!!!!!!!
