I've updated the signup list on the first post. If you've signed up and don't see your name there, please let me know.

We've got 39 people signed up so far!! There's quite a bit of time for others to sign up as well! This will really be a fun exchange!!

I want to try a new pattern this time. Not sure which one yet. Still trying to make up my mind. :hook

Hugs! Juli

I'm with smyz64 and Theresa, I'd love to get started on this NOW! Maybe I'll just make a couple of bags for practice :D

Karla, thanks for those links, too! I hadn't seen some of those before and there are some great patterns and ideas there.

I just signed up for the purse/bag exchange. I'm so excited too. This is my first exchange. I can't wait. I was looking for something to do tonight--I guess I'm going to look through my books and magazines and see if there are any purses/bags in there that might be fun to make......just to give me some ideas! Let's get this party started!

:yay :yay :yay

I've signed up too- really looking forward to taking part in a swap again- the holiday one was a lot of fun :)

I've not had much time to get online recently, but I seem to be getting back into crocheting after a well-earned new year break.

I just have one question- what's the difference between a purse and a tote? Over here a purse is what you keep your money in.:lol

A tote is a larger bag you can carry a project in, or if you're like me half your life is in your tote...my current project, a just in case i get tired of that one project, patterns, my hook case, ruler, cell phone, a crochet magazine...... lunch, small purse,
oh and in my case, my diabetic supplies I carry to work each day.

Jimmie Lu....I just noticed your picture that says you finished your 63 square afghan.

I had to chuckle at that. I started mine last March, and it sat in a basket for nearly a year. Just picked it up again last weekend.....I'm on square 6.

I'm not going to let it drop again, but it's gonna be awhile before I can say that it's finished.

What colors did you use for yours? I'm using the off-white, green like the pattern book cover and I subbed in burgundy for the pink. I just don't care for pink all that much.

Hugs! Juli

Nice colors on the bag Kathy!! :) And your dyed yarn is pretty! Is there a website with instructions?? I have a skein of the dyeable yarn from Knit Picks, but not sure how to do it! Have koolaid, food coloring and jello -- and willing to learn! :) if you know of a url where I can get instructions, I'd really appreciate it. Can't stand seeing that wool skein sitting there all white and lonely.....it needs a little color in its life.
