It’s hard to blog when nothing can be shown or talked about!


I’m still here! Y’all remember me? LOL

I’ve been crocheting away the last few days but I can’t show you any of it! I’m making great progress on SSP#4. Hopefully it will be done and out the door by the end of this week.

The other things I’m working on? Holiday gifts. And I can’t show those, either. 🙂 I did complete Holiday Socks #1 on Friday. I finished the first sock of Holiday Socks #2 yesterday and am about halfway through the foot of the second sock. That still leaves 2 more pairs to make. But, I’m feeling like I’m in a good place and can get the bulk of the gifts done in time. I say that because I know I won’t get John’s gift done in time. He already said to do his last so I can get the other ones done for Christmas morning. Good guy. 🙂

Another way he’s a good guy? He called me Friday from the mall near the airport. He was at the bookstore and wanted to know what crochet magazines I needed. I had already picked up the new Crochet Today (at my grocery store!) and I get Crochet! through subscription. Interweave Crochet isn’t out yet (although it looks REALLY COOL this month). So that left Crochet World. So he found one and brought it home to me. 🙂 Yay!

I did get a new book yesterday. It’s Rowan’s Crochet Workshop. Good book if you teach or you know a beginner who could use clear pictures. I’m likely loaning mine to my friend Mare since she’s a new crocheter. I also got a neat messenger bag at the same time (I buy my books through Crafter’s Choice). I’m going to make a CLF patch (pattern is in the CLF First Ever Book) and sew it on there. 🙂 The bag is olive drab green so it should work out.

Okay, I need to get back to sock making or I won’t make my deadlines. 🙂 Hope everyone had a great weekend.
