  1. I keep coming back to see if there are any updates. I hope that means you're happily enjoying your new baby snuggles. Just know we're thinking of you!
  2. I'm so glad to know that I'm not the only one who does this! I was starting to think I was quite the oddity since I've been watching some tutorials. I think, again from watching some online tutorials, that this is the method that is taught. Oh, I'm sure that I would be the only one who would notice for my own things, but I've been contemplating joining my first swap, and I think the knots may bug the dickens out of some of the more experienced in the group, and I don't want to do that! No, I totally hear you. Maybe it doesn't help at all except in my little brain and I should figure if I really can get away with not knotting! That will be my new motto: I am not knotting! Huzzah! I'm going to make a few squares and wash them a jillion times and see what happens. And I looked through your whole doily gallery and swooned! You do stunning work!
  3. I've been crocheting for awhile, but I've never known the right was to do this and I don't know any other crocheters in real life to ask what they do. When I'm joining in a new color, I usually don't put a slip knot on my hook. I just pull through the new color on the last part of the stitch and that seems secure enough when I weave in the ends that I don't worry about it. But when making granny squares or something where I have to add a new color to an already fastened off completed stitch or round, I usually do start with a slip knot on the hook behind the work and pull the yarn through trying to keep the knot on the wrong side. Is this what others do? Is there a better way? I hate how I sometimes can see the slip knot peeking over onto the right side of the square, but it seems way too lose without it when I weave in the ends.
  4. I'll be thinking about you and the little one today!!!
  5. Oh, thank you so much for sharing. I think this is one of the prettiest things I've seen in a long time. I have a hard time putting palettes together and I hope you won't mind if I borrow (steal shamelessly, in other words) yours.
  6. So beautiful! I too am hoping that you'll share your yarn choices with us. The colors are magnificent together.
  7. I too would like an address to send some of the blankets I've made over the years that never made it to their intended recipients.
  8. I finished mine today, too. Thanks so much for this fun project, and take good care of yourself and that little one. Please don't forget to update us when he or she's arrived, OK?
  9. As a fellow Jayhawk, I would say she will LOVE it!
  10. Oh Melinda! I know exactly what you're going through! I had high blood pressure all through my son's pregnancy and ended up on bedrest for a really long time. Take it easy, take care of you and that baby, and don't worry about us!
  11. I've been gone for a couple of weeks and need to get caught up. Actually, I need to start over! I don't know what in the world I did at the beginning, but I only had 54 stitches around, and when I read that we were supposed to have 84, I was pretty surprised! So, my son is now wearing my first one around the house looking like a tiny Jamaican, and I've just finished the first week again. Don't know how I messed up the first time because now I have 84 stitches around! Off to get caught up!
  12. Arg! I keep thinking that I should be figuring out what this is going to be by now, but I don't have clue. My son's been wearing it around like a hat, though, since I made it in his favorite colors. I'd be OK with speeding up a little, but that's mostly because I'm so curious to find out what it is. Thanks so much for doing this - it's a lot of fun so far!
  13. Thank you all for the kind welcome!
  14. Hi everybody, I'm a newbie here and would love to join in on this CAL - it looks fun and a little less daunting than the others to start with. I've finished clue 1 in a bright red, and will be starting on 2 tomorrow to see if I can get caught up before the next one comes out. Not sure yet what my second color will be, though. I'm thinking yellow?
