Another great show ladies!

I love to put small bits of yarn or spinning 2nd cuts and such in the crooks of trees for the birds and squirrels.

I love that sheep spindle, but I can't find it in your shop.  Will the young lady be making more?

Good Sunday Morning Everyone!

I have showered, donned clean jammies, and now have a yogurt parfait and coffee.  Crocheting/knitting will commence as soon as breakfast is done.

A day of crocheting hats and listening to Pandora.  Life is pretty darn good!

I've told her it is a "mouse pad", not a mouse, but she still sees it as a victory.

Great podcast ladies!  

Linda, I use the same method that you use to prevent a twist in my knitting, only I do 3 rows before I join and then weave in the end to close it up.  I would like to suggest that if you have that issue with a crochet chain, try using the the chainless foundation stitches to begin your pattern.  I will never crochet a long chain again!

ETA:  I had posted the above comment before the postcard from the Ozarks, so I had to add that your voices and harmonies are simply amazing.  Thank you for lifting your voices in song for us!

Special Olympics Project:  

I work for an not-for-profit organization that provides housing, day programs and case management services for those with Mental Heath issues, Mental Retardation issues and Aquired Brain Injuries.  As such we strive to provide resource for many of our clients to participate in Special Olympics events.

Our coordinator for our team expressed disappointment that no one had offered to donate any team oriented apparel for our athletes this time. So I offered to crochet scarves for them. I asked if the color mattered to them and she said that she would like them to be gender neutral, easy to wear (many of them have physical challenges too) and exactly the same. 

How many do you need and what is my deadline?  There are 24 athletes and we need them all by February 6th.  YIKES!

I know that there are a few crocheters at the office.  But we are all very underpaid so spending money, even on a worthy cause, can be a hardship for some.  So, I found a free pattern on Ravelry that even a beginner could follow (I asked permission from the designer to use it for this purpose).  I chose red, white, and blue as the colors.  I calculated the amount of yarn needed and purchased it all, then went about recruiting crocheters and handing them a bag with 3 skeins of yarn.  Each batch will produce 4 scarves.  

In this first week, we have 10 scarves.  14 more to go.  I am so proud of my recruits!  There is a snowstorm this weekend, so I am hoping that it will work in our favor, providing optimum crocheting time!

Fabulous!  Thank you for sharing this technique.  I had to pause the video to get some straws from the kitchen so I could play along.  This was fun!

I think this will be a fast way to use up some novelty yarn I have taking up space.

Finally, it is knitting time!... For the rest of the weekend!  

I'm working on Diamonds in the Fluff socks with Highland Handmades Sugar Maple Sock in the Fruju colorway.  Hence my project is Fruju in the Fluff.
