Popping in to say hi...

I know it's been a while. There just aren't enough hours in a day. Maybe I need to make a schedule for my day like I have for the Princess.

Anyway - I have finished a few projects... Some were just for me, some were pattern testing for a designer.

This was a SmoothFox test pattern. You can get the pattern here. Check out her other patterns as well!

Then there was this...
This was another SmoothFox pattern but not done as a test pattern. (I did that a while ago.) For this I just used two 200g balls of very soft variegated English yarn I bought at a yarn store on a road trip. I think I got within a couple rows of actually making it as big as it was designed. Pattern available here.

I really liked the way this one worked up so square and true. Again, another SmoothFox test pattern.

You will be able to get the pattern on SmoothFox's Ravelry site soon, I believe.

This was something I had started a while back.

I had already done the circles so all I had to do now was connect them all and put a simple border around it. Can you figure out the patterns in the circles???

And another one I just made up...

I connected the squares as I crocheted them so had a chart of where I wanted what color. Simple HDC border.

I can't remember if I posted this one or not. I did the basic blanket (HDCs I think) and then make some star appliqués out of Bernats fun glow-in-the-dark yarn. You can see what the difference is in the insets.

And this one technically is still a WIP. Over the last couple nights I have woven in all the loose ends (a job I H ATE!) and then connected all the squares. I want to put a ruffle border around it but I can't find the border books I have and haven't been able to find a ruffle pattern online that really grabs me yet.

What is funny about this one is that I was trying for just a random placement but after it was all done I saw that it wasn't so random. I have no idea how that happened!

I will try to post projects here as well as on my Ravelry account. Look me up there...  I'm Mamagotyarn. If you go there you can see some other things that I have done (that may or may not have been posted here.)
