  1. I'm all thumbs on small stuff and working in rounds, so I've never tried ami, but I think I'm ready to try a simple pattern or two. I see a lot of ami patterns for sale that stipulate that you can't sell the items you make from the patterns. What about those that don't specify how they may be used? I'd love to try ami, but would want to sell what I make. Am I stuck unless I can create my own? (Yea, like THAT'S ever gonna happen, LOL).
  2. I'm all thumbs when working with small things and prefer working back and forth to rounds, but I'm determined to give ami a try. This looks great for a first project. Thanks for sharing!
  3. Noting fancy, just a Simple 7" Granny Square
  4. Uglee? Not so! I think he's a cutie!
  5. Dot, I'm so glad I was able to find this today! I started this pattern 2-3 years ago and absolutely love it to use up scraps. I put it away before moving and just found it the other day, and posted a pic on my blog yesterday for WIP Wednesday. I knew others would ask for the pattern, and I didn't remember where I'd seen it. I started poring through the afghan page at CPC and there you were! I'm glad I found it so I could give proper credit. This post links back here to your pattern.
  6. Wow, you just made me realize it's been forever since I've been here - again. Need to fix that! There's really no pattern, it's just the first two rounds of a basic granny square. First round is four groups of three DC with a single ch between and join (total of 12 DC and 4 ch 1 spaces) Second round is 3 DC, ch 2, 3 DC in each ch space, which makes the squared corners.
  7. Absolutely adorable! Since I was finally able to figure out how to do one little baby sweater, maybe I'll give this one a try.
  8. Both are very pretty, and I know they'll be very happy to get them. Nice work!
  9. Very pretty. How big are the squares?
  10. Wow, what a guy! Does he have any unmarried brothers? I'm with you. I'd much rather have yarn or something for a DIY project in the house or garden than jewelry. I prefer wildflowers over a dozen roses too!
  11. I love the look of a simple basketweave. Thanks for sharing this!
  12. I've got a slipper sock pattern that you could probably adapt. The first link is photo slideshow of what they look like, showing how easy it is to do, the second is the pattern itself. Super simple. Slipper Sock Photos Slipper Sock Pattern
