  1. I voted for shawl, but would happily do any of the projects listed. It sounds like a super fun idea!
  2. Wow! Lots of great afghans. You all have been super busy!!! Shaylen - Welcome!
  3. I love that two-sided baby afghan. That's going to have to go in my to-do list. Thank you for sharing!
  4. Wow! Look at all of the pretty afghans! Great job everyone! I had a technology-free weekend. It's nice to come back to such crocheted gorgeousness!!
  5. Thanks for the compliments, ladies! I can't wait for his sister to receive the afghan. She is going to be surprised.
  6. Thanks everyone! Deb - I didn't really use a pattern. It's in what I call a "quick stitch" for the body. It's sc, ch2 and two dc. Then, the same thing is put in the ch2 spaces from the previous row. The border is a modification of the border from Lion Brands "Bright Stripes Baby Afghan". http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/90233B.html?noImages=
  7. It dependso n the type of cotton yarn used in the pattern. Most kitchen cotton is worsted weight already. However, the actual thickness of the yarn varies greatly by brand, color, etc. As the PP suggested, if it's something that size matters, a gauge swatch is needed. If it's a dishcloth or something like that it won't matter much unless the yarn is DK or thread (that's used in the pattern).
  8. I haven't actually made this, but the pattern appears correct by just eyeballing it. I have you tried and it hasn't worked? Or are you just reading and wondering if it's incorrect? If you've worked on it, can you post a picture?
  9. This is the pattern you're using, correct? http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Crochet/Projects/Accessories/LM0275%20Two-Tone%20Vest.htm The long row is referring to the longest row from the front of the garment. You'll want to do that from the wrong side of the piece. It appears that the left side of the front is worked, then you fasten off and work the back. So, pick the longest row, make sure it's the wrong side and skip 4 dc and attached your yarn. At least that's how I interpret the instructions. Keep in mind I haven't made it so I have no idea what your piece looks like righ
  10. I haven't made the pattern, but very well could help. I did a quick internet search and this is the first one that came up. http://www.******/crochet/traoftea.html Is that the pattern you're using? If so, what specifically are you having trouble following? If not and it's a free pattern, please post a link.
  11. I wonder if there's something wrong with the forum. Odd...I see them on my end.
  12. I love that so far! That's a fantastic color to work that pattern in methinks. That's going to look great once it's done. Love the colors!
  13. Thank you! Being an IU fan, I died a little inside each time I had to work on this one. LOL. The body is done in what I call "quick stitch". It's a sc, ch 2, two dc in one chain. Then, sc, ch2, two dc in the ch 2 space of the previous row. The border is a modification of the border from Lion Brand's "Bright Stipes Baby Afghan". It's one of my favs for when I'm working in more than one color.
  14. It's finally finished! Between foot surgery, Christmas and gallbladder surgery, I'd like to have never got this thing done. LOL This is for my boyfriend's newphew. He was born 1/24. I wanted to get it there before he was born, but oh well. The parents are big Florida Gators fans, hence the colors I chose. Thanks for looking! This is a picture of the body of the afghan - This is a close-up of the border -
