Pics of my squares

The light pink is in double seed stitch...great texture!
The mixed pink had a cool triangle pattern which is tricky to see in the pic with the varigated colors, but it's neat in person. Even in person it is a little subtle design due to the varigation.

Squares Collected

Torii collected some squares last night, but the sewing won't begin until we have a better idea how many colors there will be. So maybe if your square isn't done, or isn't turned in yet, could you post a picture here so she can see?

We've had a volunteer for crochet edging, she'll have to speak up and let Michelle (MyDailyFiber) know which one is selected. Or we could pick a few and vote on them, with the crocheter having veto power (cause some of those borders are a pain/eat yarn super fast)

I've gotten enough colors to do a log cabin. However, if anyone is using the mixed pinks, I'd love to throw in a little of that. But we have it at the store, so I could buy a ball and do a whole square in it, if nobody used it yet.

Log Cabin Square Help

Debbie really loves the log cabin blankets that have been turned out so far. I was thinking that in addition to my regular square I'd throw a little log cabin into the mix. And this is where I need your help. Could I collect your scraps from your squares?

Love to Hate Berroco Comfort!

Jeez Louise!

It's so pretty and soft knitted, but I've never used anything so splitty in all my live-long days. The only thing worser than knitting with it is un-knitting with it!

Rant over! Carry on.
Like I said, it is soft and pretty.

Need Yarn

Will anyone be out at ASH that could pick me up a skein of Comfort and bring it to the Hollywood Diva's on Wednesday night?

Don't hate. . .

but it's 8 X 8, after multiple discussions where we mostly reminisced about Beth's blanket and how 12 X 12 seemed too big and nobody wanted to go down the 12 X 12 road again.

New Square Size

Is the change to 8" x 8" squares official now? I charted that size tonight, and I think I can actually do it in Fair Isle, for the smaller size. I'm going to Tropical Yarns tomorrow for the white yarn, so the chances are I'll start knitting on it tomorrow, so I'm checking to be sure about the size!

The Basket

I have a basket, and I've made a tag/card for it. I'll be at the Bean around 7 and we can put everything together then. The socks didn't work out, so I made a washcloth. The socks will be for later.

Yarn Search Saturday

Is everyone available to meet at ASH tomorrow morning? How about 11:00 a.m.?
Anyone who cannot make the trek but wants yarn, let us/me know what colour.

cloth campaign

OK, so I loved Stdebb's idea about the cloth basket with nice soaps. Michaels used to sell some pretty glycerin soaps with pink ribbons in it. I will contribute a pink & white ballband cloth! (Thanks for the great idea Cheryl!)

Bibo Birthday

Just to let everyone know that Debbie's birthday is on Sunday, June 8th and as far as I know, her only plans are to have dinner with her husband. I am going to be in Key Largo (my sister and her fam are vacationing there this weekend so I'm spending Sunday hanging out with them and then staying over Zettie's) but I'm thinking maybe some of The Betties could do something in the afternoon with her? I keep remembering the Spa Day you guys were planning but I know it's too short notice to do that for this Sunday.

Anyway, just thought I'd put her birthday out there. :)
This info is what Bibo posted about what she likes for the anniversary swap! Figured we can use that to help plan.

Colors - greens, blues, black, gray, brown, pink, pink too,

I would use a hat, scarf, gloves, fingerless mitts, socks, shawl/wrap, a bag, or container.

I like lace, i like cables, im pretty easy.

Novelty items, i love fun things, i know thats not specific, but as i said above, im pretty easy and open!

Ronnie's Suggestion

Ronnie (here at the library with me!) has suggested we make a log cabin out of Comfort yarn in shades of pink and purple. I told her I would post her idea!
Please email me if you would like to be added to this blog! skullsnbats at gmail dot com

Starting now!

Friends of Debibo, unite! Post ideas for a group project, suggestions, recipes, whatever!
