    Um, 1970's - elementary school
  1. Very nice! I think the colors go together well.
  2. I finished this one in under a week. I was looking to make something soft and snuggly and in pretty shades of blue. I think it came out well. My family loves the softness of it. It's all half double crochet, in 5 different colors of Homespun, then edged in black. Close up Full view (Images are clickable)
  3. Jimmie, I just made the Triangle Shawl from the Lion Brand site. I made it from Homespun, but without the fringe. It worked up pretty quickly, and it's nice and snuggly. I'm not sure if that pattern is in the book, but I wanted to mention it. I bought some Homespun on sale at Michaels. I think the sale ends today (4-8-06.)
  4. Wow! This CAL just keeps going and going.
  5. I'm not going to be able to join, although these patterns look like alot of fun. I've just got too much other stuff going on right now. I looked at all the patterns, and my 2 favorites are the Around the World, and the Nine Patch. I see Julie is already doing these, or planning them.
  6. Very pretty! I have that booklet too. I'll have to check out that pattern.
  7. Printing this pattern out right now. Those are just too cute!
  8. Right here! I've gotta go back and check it out, but I wanted to post this for everyone to see. Admins - if this is already posted somewhere, or in the wrong place, please move or delete. (And a quick question - is there someplace to signup to get this emailed monthly?) Thanks!

    Thanks. I love the color too, and I did happen to notice that it goes well in my living room as well.
  10. I think just a round of sc as a border would finish it nicely.
  11. Nope, I'd love to see a picture too, unless it would scare me. Paulette, I'm glad you have such a sense of humor. I love the idea of re-Ebaying it as "fugly yarn." Sit back and watch the bidding begin.
  12. I just wanted to give you a of encouragement. Congratulations for making the big step to get to the post office. I'm sure it's just slow getting there.

    I did say Christmas gift. Actually, if you check my sig, that's my second gift done. Go, me! Yes, I did sleep. It really went fast. I worked on it while watching TV or listening to music from Wednesday morning (my day off) until this afternoon. I worked on Thursday and ran some errands, so I really didn't spend too much time on it. I recommend it if you need a quick project.
