  1. I want to make a small rectangle style shawl for my niece for Xmas she is 12 years old my question is what size Width and Length do you guys think would be about RIGHT? Thanks
  2. Glad to hear your doing OK Mary Jo......
  3. Thanks everyone here the other 2 I have finished and I have 2 more planned great Xmas gift planned for me :O) I am planning to fill with random things for each person personal preferences (like gift bags) plus a $10 gift card since DD & I will do this together (to gift each person) the total cost will be around maybe? $20 spent... (the yarn cost per bag is $3.50 at most if you use something like Red Heart Super Saver however I have lots of yarn in my stash so I should be covered for Zero) I am using both RHSS and Cotton for different ones)
  4. I joined a RHSS Cal on Raverly this months project was ......Pick a pattern of your choice. Any stuffed item qualifies; decorative items, toys for the kids or pets… let your imagination run wild. So I whipped up this quick little Baby Smiley Sun Shine Rattle....just perfect for Scrap busting as well...
  5. I am getting Xmas of to a start very early here.. I just whipped up 3 backpacks from this pattern for quick gifts that I will stuff with goodies & 2 will be shipped back east extra early for the holiday. This project is perfect for scraps........ Right now I just finished one completely as I have them in various stages of being done I am just completing the straps on 1 later today is the plan & one has LOTS of Scrap ends to weave in before I start this ones straps...
  6. I am working on mini backpacks for a few people for Xmas & just have to finish them off (weaving all the ends in & making the strap part) and then I will post a few pictures....I am also in a Cal on Raverly and need to get started on this months Theme/Type item just slow going over here....Not really motivated to do much of anything? not so sure why but maybe this weekend will get me back in the groove w/ some rest LOL
  7. Made for the little girl I have been crocheting for 2 Swing Skirts Jumped Right on my Hook... Best part they work up pretty quick....I finished in one evening watching TV.... I made 2 and found that RHSS Purple was very heavy so thought why not some Lion Brand Pound of Love- Hot Pink it's pretty sturdy as well as Light weight I had some in the closet.....
  8. Top # 3 and I have a purple skirt in the works
  9. I see I forgot to share the pattern I used in the above post......I was a cowl pattern I turned into a full size shawl
  10. Those are cute
  11. Only one puff stitch in the middle area per row the rest are DC stitch es
  12. WOW Mary Jo I am always in shock by your work... Looking good....
  13. Thanks everyone.....Super quick and simple just perfect project to use up lots of scraps in :O) Next time I will try it with the straps & buttons just to see how that goes as well.... Well next time is here:O) and I just finished this top....and took some measurements Child 5/6 chest measurement should be 25-26 inches around but since this top is design to be more open I figured 24 inches was good…. My Top Measurements : Straps 12 in yarn stretches Width at widest point side to side is 24 in Top-Bottom minus straps is 12 in including shells row
  14. I enjoyed learning a new stitch but I agree with how much yarn it would hog up plus I think the puff stitch is great for texture & detail but not a whole project
  15. Came across this cute swing top pattern in various sizes for for 3-7 years and teenage sizes swing top options. I really like how quick this pattern whipped up less then 24 hours...perfect for a quick gift or to match something that needs a top & you don't have one to match say for a party the next day.... This one using the 3-7 size ending measurements from side to size was 22 plus inches...( I am assuming it will fit a child who wears a size 5/6= 26 inches since part of the back is open by design) Amount of yarn total was less the 6 oz as I used part of a full skein and some scrap white yarn.....
