New! Caron One Pound, Caron Simply Soft and Herrschners 2-Ply Afghan palettes - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

New!  The Herrschner's Worsted Palette - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

New!  We've just added the palette for Deborah Norville Everyday Yarn!  If you knit and/or crochet, this is for you.  This is a beautiful yarn with a nice feel to it, a good alternative in worsted weight acrylic!  (Thank you again to BetwixtTheStitch!)

New!  The Red Heart Super Saver Palette - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

Welcome to Stitchboard!  Feel free to sit and stay awhile.  Check out our new Premier features.  In addition to the ability to create larger patterns (up to 500 stitches wide), illusion knitting and private labeling (no more worries about editing those pesky and messy PDFs), we've just introduced Filet Crochet, our most popular request!  We have many more features planned, too!  Laughing

Gloshei,
Awww, thank you so much! Kiss


MomMags,
You're so welcome!


Line,

Thanks!  Kiss  I'm desperate, as there are several irreplaceable hooks (not made anymore), so if I can get the smell to go, I can use them again!

LOL, awwww, I want you to visit so I can meet you!  Kiss

That's so sweet, but you don't have to send me Legos!  Kiss  I enjoy hearing about them!

I'm so sorry the asshat did that.  Cry  It's so wrong of him to make you cry!  He sounds like such a jerk.  I guess there's a small silver lining, in that you didn't marry him!  Can you imagine how much more difficult things would be now had you done that?  Anyway, I hope you're well rid of him from your life soon.  It can't be soon enough!  Yell

A pirate themed birthday party sounds delightful...but ugh, only 9 days away?  Surprised  I agree...a sweater is impossible...though...do you have any bulky yarn?  I wonder if you use bulky yarn, maybe even with two strands together, you can make a sweater and have it done quickly.  Just a thought!  If it's thick enough, perhaps what we call a treble or triple crochet here would work.  We have single crochet, double crochet and then treble, which isn't used as much as the double.

I was thinking about this woman who was making a gorgeous blanket out of a kind of furry yarn.  And I think she ended up doing double crochets, but it could have been done with triples, too.  It was very, very thick yarn.

If you use a shortcut, you might be able to do something fairly quickly.  Will he like it...well, that's another story, sigh.  But it might help to cut you a little slack, because otherwise, I agree...a sweater is impossible in 9 days!

What are Lego ninjagos?  Are they hard to find?

A treasure chest is a wonderful idea!  Kiss  Maybe use sugar free candies for diabetics?  Poor kid, being diabetic so young!  Cry  You could also put non-candy prizes in the treasure chest.  Little inexpensive toys, perhaps.  If you have something that's the equivalent to our dollar stores, stores which sell inexpensive items for a dollar apiece, there may be a section of what we call "party favors."  I can't remember what they sell, LOL, haven't really looked at party favors ever, but there might be little themed things that you can put in the treasure chest.

I don't think this was sold as a party favor (maybe, though)...several years ago I bought a set of adorable cat erasers in a package at a dollar store.  About 9 of them, maybe.  I did it because I like cats, but maybe there would be a similar thing of dogs or...?  The girls' party favors are usually cheap fake jewelry.  Of course you don't want that...LOL, unless you want to use some of that to be fake "valuable" treasure?

Oh, no!  Cry  Is the still slow?  It may have had a problem when you were on, and I'm so sorry if that was the case.  I don't seem to be having trouble with it now, but let me know if it continues, okay?  Kiss

Hugs,
Melanie

Neave,

Hear, hear!  Kiss  Completely agree with everything you've said here!

You mentioned the cover kits...years ago, when I used to have some great bookstores nearby, I used to buy the British cross stitch magazines.  Sadly, the American magazines aren't quite as sophisticated, nor do they have cover kits, so that was why I always bought British whenever I could get to the bookstores.  Love, love, love those cover kits!  They were always great for learning something new (and have something pretty to show for it!).  BTW, take a look at my photo albums sometime...there are some older cover kits in there.  This is the link to the cover kit photo album:

Oh, and what a beautiful drawing your husband did there!  Smile  You should run it through as a cross stitch PDF, if you'd like to print it out as a pattern with symbols only or symbols and colors.  Kiss

Thank you for letting join in all the fun here, an seeing others work in progress, I look forward to doing a graphghan Smiley
