Granny squares 2nd annual Happy Birthday Friendship/Comfortghan

Recommended Posts

Well....HE double hockey sticks...Back to the same old internet problems, even with the new router...Called the cable company last night...Told them I've had it and to get it fixed or I want a month free...They are coming out this AM...It has to be an "outside" problem...It just works when it wants and shuts off and on throughout the day...It was "up" when I arose and went "down" during the time I fixed my coffee...Was off for over an hour and "BINGO" back "up"...We will see...Thank heaven it is working now so I can check in here and read my e-mail...Isn't it amazing how we get hooked on technology ???

Estee, I just had a thought about your Internet troubles. How old is the wiring for your cable? When we moved to our place, the cable company ran new wires for the tv, but we put the modem and router in another room on existing wiring. We had months of trouble, both us and the cable co. looking at things. When we moved the Internet stuff onto the new wires with the tv, we stopped having trouble! Somewhere in the rat's nest of cables and connectors the previous owners left us was one or more bad parts.

Hi all!

Just thought I'd pop my head in and let you know I'm still around.

 

Isobel still hasn't put in an apperance so I'm struggling with being the size of a moose. Many visits to the midwife, blood tests for this and that and getting the last bits n bobs together for DD2's arrival. Been through my hospital bag atleast 6 times just to double, triple and quadruple check I have everything. Slowly working on Mr Skoggy's afghan and doing some squares for a charity I've gotten involved with who make "Woolly Hug" blankets for parents dealing with early childhood loss - cot death, birth complications, illness, accidents etc. I'm glad to be able to help out making these blankets.

 

For me, its all a case of waiting now. I hate waiting :lol

 

Hope everyone is ok. :hug

The Cable Guy came at noon, questioned me and took a look around..His diagnosis was a weak signal...Said he'd send another Cable Guy out to strengthen the signal and check out somemore....The second guy came and went...never said a word or let me know he was here...(I saw his truck.)....SO far, so good...But you better bet that at the first sign of loss they will hear from me...After all, it's the squeaky wheel that gets oiled...Now if I keep yelling my son will reimburse me for his cell phone bill...If the $$$ doesn't come tonight I'll be hitching to the closest soup kitchen and pray that they have enough vittles to feed me and my cat Tweak...

hi all, hope all is well with the group! Here it is wednesday already, where does the week go! I only have a couple scarves and hats made for charity, (once a month donation for the shelter) and that is not a lot! Gotta get myself in gear and start churning out some things for them soon as drop off is scheduled for the first part of November.... Other than that, been squaring a bit, just to keep busy when I don't feel like doing much else.... Having company shortly so gotta run, you all have a great day!

I'm very new to making squares. There are so many beautiful and fun designs that I'm making them just to play with the colors. lol. You gave me a great idea. I'll see what I can come up with for this year's pumpkin. I had never considered a crochet theme. The possibilities! A scary granny square! lol

Slightly OT, isnt there a fellow whose wife is on here, that the man makes lots of knitting loom hats? They have a blog, I think, but didn't save it. Thanks in advance if you can point me to them on cville or their blog.

 

Big hugs, laurel

Hi all! Sorry I haven't been on much this month. Busy busy. I am trying to finish my scarf swap and get my house in order before I start my course on Monday.

Lacey I still need to finish a couple of rows on your second square before I can send it out Monday afternoon. Sorry I have been so slack. I started out well and it all went downhill from there LOL.

Everyone else I promised squares to I will post the following week.

Just finished weaving all the ends in on Lacey's square! :woo Now I can pack it up and pop it in the mail tomorrow. ^_^

 

On a side note, does anybody else finish squares for other people and then go "Man, I really like how those colors came out! I need to do a square like that for MY afghan!" :D

Exactly my problem! lol. I am finishing off the squares I am sending. Now I'm wishing I had time to replicate them and keep for a second afghan.
