Vote for the best of crochet

Saturday, 19 March 2011

I haven’t been doing all that much for NatCroMo/ItCroMo this year, but I will at least be voting in the Flamies, the Crochet Liberation Front‘s annual awards, and I’d recommend you do too. If you don’t know enough about the candidates to vote there’s a Voter’s Guide with links to the nominees’ websites for more information. People are encouraged to only vote in categories where they have a real opinion. Have fun with it. The awards will be announced on Monday April 18, 2011 from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM CDT on the Getting Loopy Podcast and live at a special Red Carpet Event in Georgetown, Texas. Have fun!

Quick question re NatCroMo

Thursday, 13 January 2011

NaBloPoMo Jan2011March – International Crochet Month – is coming up, and if there’s anyone still here who enjoyed the CALs I hosted here for the last three years (Freeform in 2008 and 2009, and a mystery pattern in 2010) who has some thoughts or feedback on what you’d like me to do this year, I’d like to hear about it. Ideas from people who haven’t previously taken part are very welcome too, of course!

Hm…

Saturday, 20 March 2010

I amn’t sure what size to make that gift item I’ve mentioned a few times. (That should have been finished and sent off a couple of months ago.) I just looked in a single crochet book that has two patterns for such items, and one is nearly four times the size of the other!!!

Anyway:
UK: 20. Tr 2 in every dc around, in B. Sl st in A to side of dc. Turn.
US: 20. Dc 2 in every sc around, in B. Sl st in A to side of sc. Turn.

Excuse continuation

A week and a half ago I told you we were having a new fridge-freezer delivered; well today the old one is being taken away! Once that’s gone, of course, we’ll be able to use the kitchen table, and so should be able to clean the living room for Pesach.
