  1. I admired this so much when you first posted it, but didn't have the book you mentioned. Today I went and bought another book, Afghans for All Seasons, by Leisure Arts (the first of 3 volumes) and was thrilled to find that this pattern is in it. Yeah!
  2. So pretty! Thanks for the how-to!!

    I love the design and colors. Wonderful job! If you ever decide to write out the pattern and need testers, I would gladly volunteer!
  4. Definitely worthy of the "Awesome use of Scraps" award. Very nice!!
  5. Amazing work! Your afghans are all beautiful! I recognized a few of the patterns, but two in particular that I did not recognize really struck me. I'm curious about image #'s 1469 and 1474. Do you remember where those patterns came from? Thanks for sharing the pictures!!
  6. Krystal and Adagio, Those are both beautiful. I just need to decide if I'm brave enough now... Thanks!
  7. Thanks Judy and Rashidah. Those are very pretty!
  8. I'm looking for either a doily pattern that would work well for an afghan or an afghan pattern that has a doily feel - round, kind of lacy, etc. If anyone has any suggestions, or ones you've tried before, that would be great. Thanks!

  10. That IS super cute - and again - I love the join-as-you go aspect. I have decided not to do the sudoku-ghan for now since the yarns I was using - even though they're all the same brand and type, weight, etc (RHSS) - they're far from the same thickness and my squares were not turning out the same size. I even tried using different size hooks (larger hook with thinner color yarn etc). When I put my squares together to make the blocks, they were coming out all wonky and it was just bugging me too much. So after finishing the second 9-square block I crocheted them together back to back to make a cat mat for my kitties.
  11. Glad you're feeling better Baylee! Here's the first of 9 sections of my Sudoku-ghan. I did the continuous join method with the aran to join the individual squares and then added a round of sc in black. (It's a little hard to tell in the picture, but the squares really are all done in distinctly different colors.)
  12. Thanks so much for posting this! This will work perfectly for my project and I've never seen it before. It will be so worth frogging the 5th round of the 4 squares I've made so far to do it this way instead (anything so save me some sewing later!) Thanks again!!!
  13. I started today and have 4 whole squares done already. (Only 77 to go)
  14. This is tempting because I've been wanting to make a granny square blanket that ends up being like a sudoku puzzle, but using 9 different colors instead of numbers - got the idea from a project I saw on Ravelry. The problem is I have so many projects going right now I shouldn't be starting a new one, but who am I kidding - I'm GOING to start something new sooner or later so I could just work on squares for this now and then when I don't feel like working on one of my other ongoing 'ghans. It would certainly be a good way to use up scraps because I would need lots of different colors anyway.
