WOO!!! TTMT tee! ♥♥♥

Oh, that's a great tip on weaving in the ends. Learning new things is one of my favorite things about crafting around/with other people.

I can kinda see the spot in the close-up, but I think it's because I'm looking for it. Yay for hitting your goal for 2016!!

Two hundred videos! Girl, we have been doing this for a long time, haven't we? You've raised the bar now...my 400 is in two weeks. Hmm, food for thought!

I wore it under my sweater to work. I don't like to wear a sweater without something underneath.

When she told me that I was like, "duh" makes total sense. I've done it ever since.

Ok, just to check, where do you see the spot? In relation to the nearest snowman. It's a good way to check.

Yeah, 200. If I hadn't taken so much time off early on I'd be way higher. but I'm pretty excited anyway!

I don't see so much a spot as I do a bit of yellow to the lower left side. Like I said, it could be entirely because I'm looking for something.

200 is a lot. Really, really! TTMT has kept us close *glomps*.

Kristel nailed it on the carrot nose. It's right below the snowman scarf and nose on the closeup. I am going to donate it anyway. Hopefully everyone will be distracted Saturday by all the holiday goodies everyone brought for the party to notice...

I had to pause the video and really look, there was maaaaaybe one little area that kinda sorta maybe had a slight discoloration, but had I not been looking for it I wouldn't have seen it. #helpful :)

And since I've been such a dud about videos this year you don't have to put me in the running for a prize, someone who participates more should get it. 200 videos though, that's pretty amazing!!

Well I don't think I mentioned a minimum number of videos for the year to enter, and you are so wonderful about watching and commenting, even when you aren't making your own videos! So if you change your mind about entering just comment again by Monday night.

Did you see it in the closeup or looking at the whole blanket? Where do you see it in relation to the snowman?

In the closeup, kind of near the snowman's head....but it's so subtle. A child's not going to see it at all, they'll just see happy snowmen. :)

Yes I think so too,. I've decided to donate it and hope everyone at the meeting is too interested in holiday treats to notice!

I had a good look but couldn't really see a stain. 


Love both the blankets, a good finish to the year. 


Wow, 200 videos congrats. You can leave me out of the prize draw for this one.  ☺

Well that's good to hear! I can't help but see it since I know it's there, lol.

Thanks! Glad I squeaked in under the wire.

It's taken MANY years to hit 200... almost 10 years, in fact. My average was not good the first few years, for sure.

If you change your mind about the drawing you have until Monday. I understand. Not all prizes are compelling for everyone. I really couldn't think of what to do for the prizes!

All righty, you can count me in, I am just increasingly worried about the cost of postage from everyone sending something to me. I am thinking of staying out of any of the swaps next year as well. :)

Hey, it's not YOUR fault the postage is so much. It was so much better when you had the option to send by parcel posts via ship. It took forever but it was more affordable. Anyway, I limit my mailing of stuff for that very reason. That's why I was wracking my brain to think of something that would be easy to mail in an envelope regardless of where it was going. This will fold up nice and flat!

Strange, we are still able to send by ship. I did that for a lady who ordered something from South Africa to USA. The company didn't want to ship to USA. So she sent it to me, and I posted it via boat. Way cheaper. I am thinking of going that route from now on. Not for the "thing" that I will post via airmail.
I like the idea of the pillow slips.

So I think, from the second picture, that the stain was kind of under the scarf/nose of the snowman? But even if that's right... I have no clue where in the full blanket that would have been.

200 videos! Go you!

(Also, everyone keeps saying this, but no prize for me! I don't deserve one till I get yours in the mail! I, per usual, had small plans that I turned into grand plans, which I haven't had time for, and now I'm trying to dial myself back to the small, original plans. Lets just say January, though, to be safe....)(I'm the worst!)

Oh, well darn, yep that's it, you CAN see it. Boo. I think I'm donating it anyway, it's really more a slight discoloration at this point than a stain.

Haha, well, I don't hold that against you. I know you'll get it to me at some point. And I also don't have any interest in my sewing patterns because you have no kids. But I could have come up with a prize for you! Anyway, if you change your mind you have until Monday night.

I can see it, but I think only because you said it was there. If you've put it in front of me without pointing it out, would I have ever have found it? Probably not... it's pretty faint!

Yeah that's what I'm thinking. I am definitely not going to mention it to anyone at the Linus meeting so that way if they notice it I'll know it's more obvious than I think!

I looked and saw nothing, so I don't think it's discernible enough to matter.

I'm so glad you made use of the yarn I sent, but sorry it made things wonky. I do like the way that blanket turned out though.

Congrats on achieving your goal and congrats on your 200th! Oh, and thank you for the weaving tip.

It wasn't the yarn's fault, it's LOVELY yarn. It was just poor choices on my own part that caused the problem. Definitely operator error! I still have some left of each of those purple yarns. I'm thinking they would make a nice trim on a hat or ear-warmer or maybe wristlets.

I have changed the contest a bit, so make sure you check my more recent entry. 200-A. :)

So you've probably have turned it in by now but I saw nothing on the quilt other than how amazing it looks.

I love seeing your crochet blankets! I wish my hand would let me crochet. I really do miss it so much! One of my favorite things to do.

Congrats on 200🎉!!!

I did turn it in, I could still see it there, but noone saw it at the meeting so in it went!

I have to hold the crochet hook kind of weird because of not being able to use my index finger on my right hand (it doesn't bend), but I like to crochet in the winter when I'm watching tv. Keeps me from eating as much while I'm sitting on my behind.
