Have a cookie...

I've crossed over to The Dark Side cue ominous music. My crochet/knit group (a wonderful group of ladies) have been waiting for me to convert from the side of Goodness and Light, and I gave in this past Sunday night. That makes me a Hooker Chick with Stix. Here is my practice piece. This is only three rows, I think.

Sunday night I cast-on 10 (actually Kevin did the first cast-on but I'm not supposed to tell anyone so shhh...). I didn't do anything with it Monday because I had crocheting to do. So Tuesday during the bus ride to work I decided to practice. So I started row three. Remember I only cast-on 10 but my row ended with 9 stitches. Frog, frog, frog. Cast-on 12, knit one row, end up with 13 stitches. Frog, frog, frog. Cast-on 10, and so far I've come out with only 10 stitches for all rows.

So anyhoo...I decided to start this really pretty Filigree Bowl. I hope to finish it soon so that I can stiffen it and begin using it. I didn't realize that it takes up to three days to dry. I've never done this sort of thing before so I'm hoping I don't screw it up.

Way back in March 2005, March 10th to be exact, I became a grandma for the first time. Thank you, thank you. And about a week afterward I decided to make this crib pillow for her. The theme for her room was Care Bears and at the McDonald's had itty bitty Care Bears in their Happy Meals so I put one in the pocket of the pillow. My youngest daughter, Bethanie, liked it so much she wanted me to make her one for her bed. She picked out the yarn and well, I haven't made it yet. Mainly because we moved shortly thereafter and I haven't found that yarn yet. I told her it would have been made already but she picked Aggie colors. But I also had a one pound ball of yarn in a pretty Dusty Rose and can't find that one, either.

Until next time, keep on hooking.
