Love it!

 

Hi ladies! Looks like you've all been busy! I didn't get a chance to work on my tote yesterday. Spent most of the day at a dr's appt and was just too tired to pick up a hook by the time I got home. Have another dr appt 1 1/2 hrs from home today, but hopefully will be more energetic this evening! :hook All these gorgeous pics have me wanting to get started! :cheer

Good luck at the MD appt today!

I'm working on row 11 now of the Stashbuster tote. I do have to stop and rest off and on because of the 2 strands...but it's well worth it!

You don't take crochet with to work out?? :think:lol Actually I am on the bike at the gym for at least a 1/2 hour and up to an hour. I take my hook and yarn with! I use the recumbent bike so it's easier to sit, pedal and hook! Yesterday I took a new project with (the tote) and got all but the last 1/4 of the last row of the bottom done!

I'm usually the driver :lol . On our long trips that a group of us rabbit crazies take I'm always the driver. Hard to find someone else who is willing to drive a 1 ton truck with duallys and a 14 foot trailer tagging along :D

Worked some more on my Checkered Granny Go Round Tote last night. I am now on round 24 and am totally loving this pattern. I am thinking of making one for my mom for Mother's Day but am trying to decide what to put in it... :think

I have to agree that the Stash Buster tote is very well written and EASY!!! After working all day, this is a pattern that you don't have to think too hard with!

 

I pulled into the garage after a very LONG day at work and I have lots of my yarn stash in clear containers and the first thing I did when I pulled in was start thinking of what other color combos I'm going to use for the totes!!!!

 

I'm addicted I tell you, addicted!!! (and there in the corner sit the baby blankets I have yet to finish):lol

 

After the day at work that I had today, I think I'll nickname this tote the "stress buster" tote

Stress Buster.............Love it!!! :hook

I'm half finished with the last round of the border on baby ghan#2, and then I'm going to play witht he stashbuster pattern!:hook:hook:hook:hook

Tomorrow morning, though, no hook time. Instead it's mani and pedi time - for the first time in years. I almost pulled out my back doing my toes two weeks ago:lol:lol:lol:lol

 

'nite ladies:hook

ooooooooooh... manicure and pedicure. You go Judy!!!!!

Hi ladies :hi

 

Stopping by to see what everyone's up to.....like I didn't already know the answer to that though :devil:lol

 

I have some 'work' to do tonight and then I'm going to start on the checkered granny go round tote to gain back some sanity :lol

 

Tam - Gorgeous bag and I think I might have to locate that one as well. There aren't enough hours in a day :no

aww... thanks for the compliment!!!

shoot... ask Sue... I crochet and write patterns in my sleep...LOL

Heading upstairs- I'm on row 20 of the tote!!! Should be finished tomorrow night after work- at least that's the plan!!!!

 

Happy Tote Making tomorrow everyone!!!

oh... row 20 huh? way to go!!!!

:heart

This one is AWESOME! I have a friend that's a cat fanatic, and so I think I need to maker her a tote in various shades of purple (her favorite color) with this pattern... what's the name of it? I still need to hop on Ravlery and look up Turtlelvr - I bet I "need" a bunch of patterns... LOL

Its really a fun pattern. I've slightly altered it to make the cats taller... but other than than... Neat pattern!!!

Well, I managed to get the granny checkered go round tote started last night. I only got 5 or 6 rounds done, but it's a start :clap I had some other things to do and I have a knit sweater waiting for sleeves that's calling my name loud and clear, but I was just too excited to get this tote started :lol I'll take it to work with me too and work on it during my lunch break :wink So far, so good.

Oh how I understand having so many projects calling out to you! I have some still in my head wanting to get out.. and some started wanting to be finished. :hook

I also started the granny checkered go round tote last night. I got through round 15 while I was watching The Biggest Loser with my mom. The pattern is wonderful!!!

Oh.... cant wait to see it!!!

WOW! I miss a day of checking in here and the thread has taken on a life of it's own :lol

 

Here are photos of some of the totes I've made recently. Some were to test and some because I loved the pattern. Want to start another but need to finish a diaper bag and changing pad I'm working on at the present time.

:yay............ on your mark............get set....................GO :hook

 

I am resisting the urge to stash dive to find colors to make another tote. I have one in mind I want to do, just need to finish a couple of things first, but I really, really WANT to start another tote. I am sooo addicted.

toooote... tooooooooote.....oh toni......... toooooote :D

c'mon dobermama ya know ya wanna TOTE pick your hook up and TOTE (to the tune of "shout")

 

and yes katyallen....if you have yarn and hook and a tote pattern and are an addict of totes youre more than welcome to come sit a spell have something to drink, careful to not spill it on your bag and have a snack!

 

now whos turn was it to bring the snack and perk the coffee :lol

Just a little FYI............. there is ALWAYS coffee brewed at my house! matter of fact... just made a fresh pot.... already drank the first 2 :D so hop on over... I have plenty!

I started a Stashbuster tote in RHSS Dark Orchid and a variegated, Bernat's Fresh Lilac:c9

oooooooooh.... sounds nice!!!!

Tam

Yeah... 2 strands can sometimes cramp up the hands. Somedays it doesnt bother me.. others I have to take breaks.

Hi Ladies,

:yay.............. you've been pulled in.........LOL

uhoh................ you know you'll get sucked in........... the yarn will start to call.... the hook will start to rattle.. and you wont be able to resist. Toooooote!

good afternoon ladies! i hope everyone is doing well and having fun with their totes.....i officially started my first tote earlier this afternoon.....black.zebra!!!

im only on round 4 so itll be a while before i see it taking shape so to speak but so far this tote is SO easy......i would have started sooner but as it is i had a few other things to finish and got caught up watching extreme couponers last night....im not as bad as those on the show however i keep my eye out for good bargains and am staring to colect weekly circulars from the various stores round about me.

are there any other couponers here?
