…where I appear to be the only one engaged in it! LOL No matter. I’m making something I want and I just wanted company.
Crochet-A-Long Progress and a Surprising Endorsement
I don’t know how many of you, if any, are starting your Pumpkin Face Throw with me, so I’ll assume some of you are and just haven’t chimed in. I wanted to share a technique with you that will minimize the gap when joining in the round. Please click here for the video!
I also wanted to mention that my blog views have been going off the chart (for me, at least!) because Lion Brand Yarn mentioned…
Oh. My. God.
You’re probably wondering “What’s with the title?” I’ll tell you. I am going to write about the misunderstandings a long-term marriage can experience when it comes to the wife going into a yarn shop. You know, Oh, I’ll be right in and out because I know exactly what I want. Now…I did tell him that; HOWEVER, that was only if we went to the grocery store first, then went to Jo-Ann Crafts. But…
While doing a countdown to Friday so I may start on the CAL (yes, that’s a link for the crocheters aka “hookers” out there…click on it if you haven’t checked it out already), I decided to play with some novelty yarn.

I’ve got Halloween on my mind, and I can’t be the only one. I know, I know, we should be working on our Christmas gifts, but I would like to squeeze in a Halloween project. Something we can do together. And be done with in…oh…a month. So you could have plenty of time to return to your Christmas gifts, or get them started. I’d like to get this started as soon as…
I totally love the pageantry of Halloween. The colors, the candy, the changing of the seasons, the costumes, the legends…ok, so mostly the candy.

There’s just something so…what – primal? about this time of year, and as I get older, it is rapidly becoming my favorite holiday. So, without further ado, here is the link to the beanie pattern.

The mother of the newborn girl I had previously taken pictures of wanted me to take pictures of the family, plus brothers, sisters, grandma and their children. Now I was a little nervous, because taking pictures of so many people and children is a challenge. As one of the father’s said, it’s like herding kittens! We ended up having a few mishaps – goathead thorns found their way into someone’s foot and caused a great many tears and I lost my prescription sunglasses, only to find them later on in someone’s thoughtful care! But all in all, it was a good time. I did have to add the picture of the frustrated and bored children at the end because it so eloquently shares a story without words! Below the gallery is a fun poll – take it and I will answer in about a week!
