  3. Jessie, they are all pretty! I love the look of the shawl. Did you use a pattern on it? It has a waffle stitch look.
  4. Judy, pretty blankets! I always enjoy seeing pictures of Lucy. The sweater is really cute--she did a great job with it. Brenda, I wondered if y'all had a betting pool going on when they would sink. LOL We had several days of nice temps and sun this week. Then 3" of rain with maybe a couple more tomorrow. Very soggy here, but no complaints from me because the temps are moderate. I finished the blanket in time for the birthday on the 17th and the toddler sweater goes to the birthday party this afternoon. I'm back to working on the dahlia blanket for a May birthday. LIfe is no
  5. This is the last week of the month, so please post both your WTD and YTD scores today.
  6. I finished the toddler sweater and rolled a skein into a ball. I've gotten back to working on the dahlia blanket which uses about 15 colors, so there'll be nothing to count on it for a long time. I committed my first transgression of the year. I ordered 10 skeins for sweaters for the GDs. It's a stripes yarn, just hope I like the length of the stripes for this pattern and don't have to find a different yarn. WTD +1 YTD +17
  7. Welcome back! We love to see project pictures. Congratulations on the grands; they are a great way to count time.
  8. I splurged and ordered a ten pack of Bates Bamboo handle hooks and a nine pack of Boye ergonomic handle hooks. The mm size of each letter size is not necessarily the same. I had no idea there was a difference between brands. Is that difference enough to make a difference in gauge? hook letter and number size/mm Boye: D/3.125 E/3.5 F/3.75 G/4.25 H/5 I/5.25 J/5.75 K/6.5 L/8 Bates: E-4/3.5 G-6/4 US7/4.5 H-8/5 I-9/5.5 J-10/6 K-10.5/6.5 L-11/8 M-13/9 N-15/10
  9. A friend mentioned today having a problem with silicone baby plates smelling like soap. She researched and found someone saying that Dawn dishwashing soap was the only thing that would get rid of it.
  10. We too often forget to look for the good in people and it doesn't make it into the news very often. Thanks for sharing your experience. Being kind really doesn't take much effort and I think it can inspire others to be kind in return. We could sure use a snowball effect in that regard. LOL
