  1. I wanted to let you know that my daughter got an 18" doll like this for Christmas, and I had pinned many patterns I found over December. After she got the doll, I let her pick out what outfit she'd like me to make first, and this was the first she picked. Thank you for this sweet pattern!
  2. WOW!!! That's GREAT!!!! That's almost 1.5 miles a day or so!! Keep up the good work! Victoria
  3. I think I've decided what to make lol... After a lot of thinking, I would LOVE to get rid of some scraps, but I feel like I want to make a really cool afghan, one that I wouldn't have made for myself otherwise, but one that I'll truly cherish. Anyway, I have a book called something like "Award Winning Afghans" or maybe "Blue Ribbon Afghans" and there is a GORGEOUS blue/white afghan on the front cover. I have the book around here somewhere, but I'm going to make that afghan. The cool thing is that I think there's a CAL for that afghan somewhere here on the 'ville, so there you go. If I hav
  4. Ooooh! I like the idea some of you have, that you crochet after you've exercised a lot, like, making so many rows each mile you walk/bike/run. I think I might do that. That way, even if I were to gain some weight back, I know I'm making progress, and I can see how much work I've done already. That might keep me going. Ok. Officially, I'm going to make one small square for every mile that I walk/bike. We have a stationary bike, and I can even crochet while biking! Maybe after 750 miles/750 squares I will have lost 70 lbs? Hey, it's possible!! Victoria
  5. I'd love to join!! I need to lose a lot of weight, especially by the 10 year high school reunion that is coming up June 2010... I also need to use up TONS of scrap yarn, so I could probably do both! I can't decide on a pattern, but maybe something like the mindless afghan, or something that I could do each row a different color, and each row could be 1 lb. or something like that... I thought about a 9 square type granny quilt, but I don't know if I want to join all those squares... Would look cool in scraps though! Here's the link to a baby size, but I would make it larger, and each 9
  6. Yup, I've been pretty busy lately, but all good kinds of busy lol. The fleece ones I have are really just a piece of fleece cut about 5-6" wide, and about 30-50" long, just however long the material was when I got to the end. You could probably cut a fringe, but I just thought I'd leave them as they are. I've seen them both ways. That reminds me... I have another diaper box around here for you... Talk to you soon! Victoria
  7. I think the length is just about right. Just as a rule of thumb for myself making scarves for kids, is that I like to make them as long as the child is tall. This works out well for adults as well, if you like long ones that will wrap around your neck, then tuck inside your jacket. So, 50" would work just fine for probably a child about 4-5' tall, so elementary school-maybe 6th grade? I hope you don't have a lot of children who are abused in this age range... Do you need scarves for those kids? Wow... I haven't been watching this thread in a while, so if you need them for kids let me kn
  8. Neat! I love those pictures! I like to see what others mail in too. I'm curious too about the lapsquares, and if those are asked for too. You're doing such a wonderful thing! Wow!!! Victoria
  9. Hey Ann! It looks like you got quite a few for May! Wow! How many did you end up getting last month? I love to see the pictures on your website of all the scarves bundled and ready to go. You're doing just an amazing job with this! I hope everyone keeps helping out with it! Hugs Victoria PS I have 1 or 2 more scarves to go to fill another diaper box, and it'll be ready. I hope to mail it during June sometime.
  10. Lol... Nah, I didn't smell the yarn, although it shouldn't stink lol. That yarn is so much fun to work with! It's really neat! I haven't worked with "fun fur" before, but I do like some other kinds of novelty yarns. If they hadn't had a scarf made up with that yarn, I probably would have walked on by, and never discovered this yarn. Talk to you soon! Victoria
  11. Ann, Hi! I wanted to show you my blog, where I just made up some fun scarves! The yarn really isn't bad to work with, and since it was a V-stitch, I was crocheting in holes, except for the base chain. I'm collecting another diaper box worth of scarves, so it might be a little while before I send them to you, but I wanted to share the yarn suggestion, and pattern and everything here if anyone would like to try it. Happy Sunday! Victoria
  12. Hi! I see from your website, that you received 34 scarves in April! That's great! I'm just curious, about how many are needed each month? Wouldn't it be great if we could have a group goal to make 50 total each month? It's sad to think there would be a need for that many, but there just might be. I don't have any idea how many you'd need, but abuse is such a horriable thing... Victoria
  13. Ann, Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I've posted my shawl to you on my blog, and a link to the charity. It's a new blog, but maybe it'll attract some more people to help your charity. Hey, it can't hurt, right? Talk to you soon! Victoria
  14. Wow! Those are both beautiful! I don't know why I hadn't ever thought of making them with cotton yarn... Great idea! Just out of curiosity, about how much yarn does it take of cotton to make a scarf? About the same as out of acrylic? Thanks! Victoria
