This weekend I bought Debbie Stoller's new book Stitch and Bitch Crochet The Happy Hooker.
I've never crocheted more than a chain and so it is a little weird to try to figure out what the patterns are telling me to do. The abbreviations could be confusing. Like the one for double crochet(dc) makes me think I need to decrease.
My Gram Madora made many a granny square blankets but one of my favorite creations of hers was the set of three bears that she crocheted. I have to learn how to crochet so I can make cute bears too.
I think I am starting with the Sock Monkey hat. A couple of my friends are having baby boys this summer.

Stitch and Bitch

Ok so last weekend I went to an SnB. I have to admit that this was the first SnB I had ever been to despite always looking at the SnB meetings around town. It was fun. I think I came in at the end of the "bitch" portion but I started another pair of little kid mittens. I think it was the only thing that I could think of last week when I went.
But my friend said some nice things about me and my talent and stuff and basically I am thinking of starting a sweater or at least some sort of sweater tank top thing. I may not be ready for sleeves yet but I think I am ready to graduate to sweaters. It really is a big step though. I mean it took me a year and a half to make socks and what if I make a sweater and it takes me 5 years or something outragous like that.
But no really I am going to make a sweater.
And I am going to finish all of my other crafty projects like the Winnie the Pooh crossstitch projects I have to finish.

In other news my kitty may need to have lab tests done to see if something is wrong with him if he keeps getting sick. So keep your fingers crossed that he stops getting sick.
