  1. I have a feeling this is going to be our biggest year yet for the babies. What a blessing!
  2. Was just getting online to email you! Our mail goes to a central lockbox on the block and we didn't go down yesterday. Just got back from the mailbox and there it was! I'll be getting pics of your ghans and Jessica's up here in the thread this weekend.
  3. I use the skip stitch blade (available online). Many people use the Ederydoo (also online). I like to use the Edgerydoo template to round my corners and then go with the skip stitch blade,.
  4. Here are my latest. 3 RR and 4 fleece. I have one more yard of fleece and then I"m out of my stash! oh no!
  5. I can wash them. Please just include a note reminding me to do so. Thanks Post a pic!
  6. Jessica - it's lovely! It's fine that it doesn't lay flat... the people who make Persian Rugs always purposefully put a flaw into the rug, because they believe that the only perfect thing is God. The afghan will comfort a baby and let a family know that they aren't alone- it couldn't be more perfect than that!
  7. Received 2 packages this week. The 3 blankets are from Cindy. I love the circle to square granny - never seen a square like that! The pic of 2 blankets are from Yensi - she sent them from Singapore! So lovely!
  8. I was home sick this weekend. It meant that I had lots of time with my crochet hook to work on NICU projects. The baseball blankets are 1/2 yard each - so good for older babies. The pink are 1/4 yard each - so good for newborns and large preemies. And the green is from 1/3 yard remnant and will be for micro-preemies or could even be a "lovey" for an older baby.

  10. Congrats Deb on winning the hook! Terri - once you get a Jimbo hook, you'll never want to use anything else! For a long time, when I only had one of them, I'd reject projects if they didn't require that size hook!
  11. I'm lucky enough to have Jimbo's hooks in several sizes and use them for all my projects. I've loved them for years for a variety of reasons. They are works of art. They get warm in my hand. I've found a new reason to love them. I've been using my size G (if I remember right) a lot lately as I've been making alot of crocheted fleece. When Jimbo sends the hooks, they are always so smooth - but my G ... now that skeins and skeins of yarn have traveled over it ... well, the top part of the hook is smooth as glass and glistens as though it were. I took a picture tonight - and the shiny part you see isn't a reflection of the light - but how polished the wood has become over time. Isn't it beautiful?
  12. Very pretty! I love round ripples!
  13. I picked up some fleece yesterday at Joanns at a big discount. I got a yard of this strawberry fleece - normally I'd make that into 4 blankets for the NICU, but with the pattern being large, and just how cheerful it was, I didn't want to cut it that small. I got 2 blankets out of it. One with shell edging and one with a v-stitch.
  14. I got two more done today. Did these larger - 1 yard of fabric gave me 2 blankets this time instead of my usual 4. I loved the pattern on this. So cheerful!
  15. I've gotten 12 more fleece blankets done. Plus, got a huge deal on fleece at Joann's today -so it looks like I'll be doing more. I did some of these with granny edges, some with shells and some v-stitch.
  16. Here are two round ripples I did this week. The blue is 27 inches and the yellow is 29. Slightly smaller than I normally do, but these will work for large preemies or newborns... and I got 2 afghans out of only 2 skeins of yarn
  17. Here are the 3 latest round ripples I've completed for the NICU. Ranging in size from 27 inches to 34. I've done so many of these over the years, that I can do these without thinking, which makes it a great project in front of the tv.
  18. I use the Edgerydoo templete as a guide to round my corners and I use the skip-stitch blade to make the holes.
  19. Have alot of fleece that I"m finally using up. Here's 12 blankets and 1 round ripple I"ve gotten done recently.
  20. Linda sent these 15 blankets in for the babies. She gets blankets donated to her for her charity project and she has passed some on to me! Plus, 1 hat!
