I am reading back what I am posting. Half of it doesn't make sense to me. HA!

My crochet hooks are in a case that looks like a sunglass case. I have plenty of hooks, but I never seem to have the size I need. I suppose it would help if I finished a project. I probably have 8-10 more hooks in unfinished projects. I was taught with a "g" hook, but I had to venture out. I know have e-n.

I have to admit, I love all the crochet talk. A few years back, I joined a crochet thread here on SCS, because no one here was into yarn projects. Now, I don't need to follow that group.

I think I'm only bringing yarn and hooks to the Mingle. I need to find a good pattern to work on that weekend.

I am crocheting my scarf in between posting here.

I think we are going to have a lot of dish cloths. That's what I think. Practice, practice, practice.

I can't read a pattern. If I can see it, I can learn it. And beyond square or rectangle things, I'm lost.

Crocheting is simply busy work and keeps me out of trouble.

I can crochet simple scarfs and dishcloths. At least I used to remember how to do that. I'm not even sure where my stuff is. I have one crotchet hook. lol!

I really need to shift. I need to get back to the Mom Cave. That pile of ribbon is still on the floor. I have 37 rolls of SU grosgrain. And not 37 different colors! A perfect example of my hoarding tendencies!

Nikki, I've been making dishcloths lately. Mostly 'cause I need them!

Cathy, I have a great afghan that is worked in strips. But it's not written down anywhere. Remind me and I'll bring a hook and yarn and show you...someone my ex worked with taught me the pattern when Chris was a baby.

I know several stitches, but few "patterns." I have many pattern books, but I get lost shortly after the first chained row!

That sounds great, Lisa! My family members have expressed interest in having me make afghans, so I'm looking for a good pattern. Preferably a simple one.

This one LOOKS harder than it is. And since you work it in strips, it's really portable...you don't join it til all the strips are done.

You work each strip solo. Then the join is part of the pattern.

I get the emails, but rarely look at them. I just figured out why: I look at the patterns and my brain hurts!

OK good. I was worried it was too plain. But I try to do that for the club members and do another up fancier to show them what they need to buy.

Went to throw a load in the washer and I came back to my computer black. Apparently the battery wasn't hooked up, so it took a minute to bring it back up.

Productivity is starting to happen over here. I have a load of laundry going and I'm now cleaning out the storage part of the TV stand. I have a large number of VHS tapes, but no VCR. So out they go!

Hey Nikki, would you like my stereo receiver to go along with the CD player? I won't be using it to listen to the radio and since I'm getting rid of my only other stereo component (the CD player), there's not much point in me having a receiver.

Good Morning!

Nikki, that card is perfect! It is cute and simple to replicate without being boring.

Cathy, you purging inspires me. WTG!

I need to get. We are running George on the trail behind the house and then it is errand time. Have a good weekend!

Oh, I also have a cassette tape player that's one of the stereo components. That shows you how old my stereo is! The tape player is getting trashed today.
