  2. Hello and welcome to the boards! Here are at least three people with blue for sale. You will have to sign up to Ravelry, if you haven't already, to see and PM them. http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/yarn-bee-bamboospun-77-23-blend/stashes?status=trade&cf=%3F&photoless=0&search= Hope that helps.
  3. So pretty. And a little for you.
  4. Not sure what brand or the length of the color changes but how about trying planned pooling? Here are a few patterns. They do call for a second and some a third color but that is for accent.

  5. I bought one yesterday at Walmart and though others might be interested. It is by Boye. It has a plastic type cover and back, held together with an attached elastic. The planner is wire bound. There is cute crochet on the cover and throughout the planer. Inside there is a plastic zip holder. It is then section off: Reference. This has tools (a breakdown of hoots, hook sizes, ounces/grams, yarn sizes, abbreviations, and symbols. Projects. Work in progress list, graph paper, Project with a place for everything. Several of these pages Inventory. Note page, tool inventory page, several swatch pages with places for information. Calendar. Blank month at a glance calendar followed by a couple week at a glance, and a note page for each month. You can start this any year. It does have mini at a glance calendar for 2017, 2018, and 2019 at the very front. I know some don't use Ravelry which has a lot of those same features so this might be a good alternative for you. It was $12.47. There was one for knitting, too.
  6. That is a lot of yarn!
  7. Well done! I've been seeing them, too. So cute.
  8. That is great! Mine would be a mess with Continental drift. LOL
  9. Very pretty!
  10. Most any pattern you like can be worked up with the color changing yarns. You can Google, search Pinterest and Ravelry for ideas. Some good ones would be a giant granny, round ripple, and corner to corner. Have fun on your vacation and enjoy your project!
  11. Very nice.
  12. I was thinking maybe weave a ribbon through the side and tie with a bow. I think that would be pretty.
  13. In case you have heard, Photobucket is changing they way they do things. They are no longer free hosting for embedding or external link backs. You can continue to use them but it will cost you $399 a year. If you have a paid account now, you will be okay until the end of next year. I know some here, like Tampa Doll, use it to show off their works. Here is there blog post on the changes: http://blog.photobucket.com/please-review-latest-changes-photobucket/ Photos already embedded will change to an upgrade reminder. This is happening in waves so your account might not have been hit yet. If you have photos stored there and no where else, you'll want to download them to your computer. Some people have been reporting they are blocked and can't even access their account. I wouldn't count on tinypic as a new site as they are owned by Photobucket and probably will go the same way.
  14. Hi and welcome to the boards! If you are a member of Ravelry (it is free to join), you can see this search I did that is for bamboo yarn in aran weight. You might be able to find something there that will suit you. Keep in mind that cost varies. http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/search#query=bamboo&discontinued=no&weight=aran&view=thumblist&sort=best Also you might try the destash board here. Some one might have some. https://forum.crochetville.com/forum/47-recycling-center/ Or at Ravelry there is the yarn page for it and some are willing to trade or sell. Here is the search for that. http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/yarn-bee-bamboospun-77-23-blend/stashes?status=trade&cf=%3F&photoless=0&search= Good luck!
  15. Lovely!
