  2. This came out beautifully!!!
  3. Thanks everyone! I can make it for myself if I needed it, but I can't make any logos to sell or share because it is a copyrighted issue Otherwise I would be happy to!
  4. I made this NY Giants afghan for a teacher I work with that is having a baby girl next month She is a huge Giants fan (as am I!) so I was very excited to make it! I used hot pink instead of red and gave it a fun ruffle border. I LOVE how it turned out! I kind of want to make a bigger one for myself Thanks for looking!
  5. You're welcome
  6. This is a hexagon I made and put together to make a turtle shell-like piece I used caron simply soft and they were about 4 inches across Begin with a magic ring (or ch 4 and join to beginning chain... if you do it this way though you might have a larger whole in the center) Rnd 1: Ch 1, 6 sc in ring, join with sl st in first sc, turn. (tighten center whole in ring) Rnd 2: Ch 1, 2 sc in each sc around, join with sl st in first sc, turn - 12 sc. Rnd 3: Ch 1, sc in first sc, 3 sc in next sc, * sc in next sc, 3 sc in next sc; rep from * around, join with sl st in first sc, turn - 24 sc. Rnd 4: Ch 1, sc in each sc around, join with sl st in first sc, turn. Rnd 5: Ch 1, sc in each of the first 2 sc, 3 sc in next sc, * sc in each of the next 3 sc, 3 sc in next sc; rep from * 4 more times, sc in last sc, join with sl st in first sc, turn - 36 sc. Rnd 6: Ch 1, sc in each sc around, join with sl st in first sc, turn. Rnd 7: Ch 1, sc in each of the first 3 sc, 3 sc in next sc, * sc in each of the next 5 sc, 3 sc in next sc; rep from * 4 more times, sc in each of the last 2 sc, join with sl st in first sc, turn - 48 sc. Rnd 8: Ch 1, sc in each sc around, join with sl st in first sc, turn. Rnd 9: Ch 1, sc in each of the first 4 sc, 3 sc in next sc, * sc in each of the next 7 sc, 3 sc in next sc; rep from * 4 more times, sc in each of the last 3 sc, join with sl st in first sc, turn - 60 sc. I changed colors but you obviously don't have to Hope this helps!!
  7. I made a hat with it, it's definitely thick, I would compare it closely to caron pounders, but it's softer I think
  8. I think it should be, I am in the middle of making the "diamond flower baby blanket" (which I found on Ravelry) using a giant ball of bernat sport and it is pretty light It's a great pattern and it's free!
  9. I think I might need glue. It's Lionbrand wool ease, it's pretty soft. I took the end and wove it in vertically instead of through a row of sc, thinking it wouldn't pop out that way. I think you're all right, also that they are popping out because they are stretching so much. So fabric glue should work out ok?
  10. Hi all I made a pair of gloves for a friend, they are the kind with the finger tips left off, and she has had them for about a week now. She showed them to me today and almost all of the ends that I THOUGHT I wove in securely enough were coming out This is the first time I've ever made these kind of gloves. There are a lot of ends (2 per finger) and the gloves stretch fine enough to fit on her hand well, but I just don't know how to weave these ends in enough so that they won't slip out every time she wears them. They are made with all sc I'm stumped! Any suggestions on what I should do?
  11. This is so beautiful!
  12. I do mine the same way
