Get together

Tonight I am going to Ann's for a girl's get together. I am bringing my crochet projects and will try to get a few into it so we can have "knit and b*tch"... I mean crochet but it sounds better with knit. I know that Erin would be interested to start with so that will help.

Let hook'n roll

Poncho drag

I have never been big on working on more than one project at the time other than having a dishcloth waiting to be finish while I make something more interesting but today I feel like it. I have been working on Nat's poncho for a while and I am getting bored with it. I am thinking about starting Michelle's.

It might just be because I think I will have to undo-redo one of the side and I have been putting some time into it, I really don't feel like starting over... I guess I will have to finish e second one before I cant tell. The second looks perfect... better anyway, the first one I had to add an extension because once I was far along enough it was not the right length. For the second one, I almost spend a whole day doing and undoing it to make sure it was the right length... and it is.

Yesterday I called a friend from my old job and they started a "knitting/crocheting club". About ten women are getting together at lunch to "knit and b*tch". What a great idea! I love it. Unfortunately I would not be able to do that here as most of people take only 1/2 hour lunch, not much time to do anything and it is not like we have a room where we could do it, everything is always booked solid. I will talk to a few girls about it anyway, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Patterns available for crocheters... frustration

Is it only me but I find that there are all those really nice patterns for knitters but I can't seem to find nice one for crochet. Most of the projects are tacky and out of style when you are looking for women clothes. I can't find nice twin set or tops.

I have tried to knit but I can't get a handle on it. I feel trap with the two needles... a bit claustrophobic. On top of that, it is sooo slooow to get anything done, feels like forever to see some fabric. Maybe I should take a class but at the same time I feel like I am cheating on my first love; crochet.

Current and Future Projects

I saw all those blogs and groups that are crocheting and I want to join in!

I started crocheting late, I was 28 years old. The mother of my boyfriend at the time was an avid crocheter and I got the bug.

I go through waves of inspirations and production than slow down for a few months so if it seams like I am not writing so much, don't worry, I will be back.

I have been working on a few baby things in the past months, my sister is pregnant so I have to do my aunty's duty. A little girl is expected at the beginning of December, first in the family, she will make a hit.

Now I am working on a poncho. Yes, the most popular item on the net, I am pretty sure! It is for Nat, my brother's girlfriend.... Christmas present.

I have a couple other projects on the backburner;
  • Another poncho for Michelle this time, I found the prefect pink yarn this weekend.
  • Baby cover, Boyish colors, just in case. I have a few pregnant girlfriends and if I get less productive I should be ready.
  • A lacy curtain for the bathroom sink

I don't have a digital camera but I will find a way to get my creations on the blog
