ok weaving in ends..... how many are getting rid of ends as they go? or are you leaving them all until the end? Are we supposed to leave the tails?? I made like 15 more today, and all the ends are gone, :lol I can't imagine weaving in 700 ends at the completion of this thing. Just seeing what ya'll are doin.....

I weave them in as soon as I finish one, I use the same crochet hookand weave it in about 4-6 sts, instead of the yarn needle. Much less headache at the end, b/c it is all done already! ;)

I've been weaving the ends in as I go. I get impatient towards the end of projects and I would be so annoyed at those ends.

 

I'm hoping that Santa brings me a new digital camera this Christmas. If he does, I'll post pictures of the yo-yos I've made so far. You guys are really coming along and it looks great.

I got a camera for Christmas! :) Here is a picture of the yo-yos I've made thus far. I'm doing one color at a time so, they are all turquoise. I'm doing the ziz-zag yo-yo pattern. I'll have to find the link.

Thank you! I've only been working on my yo-yos at work. I'm a customer service rep in a call center and I can do this in between calls b/c it's not too involved. I promised my husband that I would only work on his afghan at home. I've put his afghan off long enough. So, I won't be doing any yo-yos today. I'll work on them some more tomorrow at work.

 

Good luck with your goal of 20-30 yo-yos! :cheer

well i was watching a movie with the kids, and I did in fact make 35 yo-yo's during the movie, so that is exciting, I'll post pics tomorrow sometime. And it isnn't yo-yo's but I started a doily for my mom's 50th birthday, and I made a scarf from the happy hooker book for my daughter.

 

woot, i was productive today, and cheerful, which is always good! hope everyone had a great day!

I've been working on a yo-yo afghan since last year...but I kinda forgot about it until I realized I had a ton of leftover wool.:blush

 

Anyways...I'd like to join in on the crochet along.:cheer

 

I have some questions though:

 

Years ago I remember seeing an afghan like the yo yo blanket, except the joining was done with different colors not one single color. Is anybody else trying this?

 

Some one was saying something about not using black, white or beige? Any reason why?

 

& finally

 

who's going to finish first?:think:D

I made 11 of them yesterday. I have a long way to go though. But it used up two small balls of yarn. So that part made me happy.

I'm in :) I was digging thru my stash looking for brown green and white novelty yarn of all kinds to make a scarf for my mom and i found a bunch of scraps of yarn in bright colors. So I think I'm going to make it in bright colors and join with white or black and give it to my little sister for her birthday or christmas next year :)

Count me in. I do think that I am going to do rows though instead of squares. And I might try to offset the odd number rows so that there is less open spaces.

I love the idea of putting the yo-yos in a vase. I have several that are never used and this will be a great way to use them.:clap

Hey, have some funny and disappointing news! Yep, I intended to make several yo-yo's among other things while we traveled ( 17 on road hours! we were stuck in terrible traffic which extended our travel time by a few hours) over Christmas, I only finished 5 yo-yo's out of my personal goal of hoping to come home with a gallon size baggie full.:eek:think , I did start a bearevement blanket for the charity blitz though. Hoping to get some yoyo's made now that I'm finally back home! :hook

cool danielle, I'm sure she'll love it..

 

heart, sorry to hear about such a long travel time, that's just crazy.

 

well, I think today is going to be another yo-yo day. I need to finish this one by March 18th so that I can have it mailed out in time for my neices birthday. She doesn't know she is getting it so that is exciting. Anyway, I'll come back on tonight and post a pic of the days progress.

 

Have a good day all!

well, I made 52 yo-yo's this morning, bringing my total up to 135/540 :clap

 

here are a few pics, the 2nd one is the vase I'm holding them all in, it holds quite a few, it still isn't full. I have 10 weeks left to finish this thing, and I am confident I can get it done :cheer

this is a lot more fun than I realized it was going to be! I havn't decided yet if I'm doing the hexagon shape, or if I'm going to do it in rows. I'm leaning toward rows though, since that is what the 540 came from :lol
