Its from August 21st.


I love my pattern a day calendar, but sadly I've misplaced the pattern for this bone, so I cant even give the pattern originator credit.  I wish this little calendar was in a 3 ring binder or something, because I've already misplaced 2 patterns from it!!!

I'm sure they'll turn up somewhere, but they are so small its not hard to lose them.


Thanks! I looked in my calendar (which I also love, even though I had reservations about buying it- so many people complained about it!) and the designer of the pattern is Andrea Wallace.

As for storage, right now I'm keeping everything in the box. The pages are such and odd shape (and easily torn, I think), I don't know if I can find a good alternative for storage. When I need to work on a pattern, I think I'll make a photocopy of it as my "working copy" so I don't damage (or lose) the original. Plus, I can write on it to keep track of where I am!

Thats a great idea to photocopy the patterns, then it wouldn't matter about marking them up or losing it for that matter.

I used my biggest hook to crochet this.  Its size isn't marked on it, but its the same size as my biggest knitting needles...size 15mm or US 19....Is the same sizing scale used for knitting needles and crochet hooks??

I think this would be really great out of plastic bags for a mat under dishes. Smiley You've totally inspired me!

Oh, it would be great out of plastic bags!! 

I think thats what this one is intended to be used as...Under the dog's dishes.  I made this for the 'pet swap', and my partner has a small dog.

 I always use a mat under my dog's dishes.  He's such a messy guy.  But his mat is rubber.  Flannel is so washable, so I thought why not?  But I'd be really interested in seeing this out of plastic bags.

The size number are different (ie US 19) but mm is always the same!  (That's why you can use a knitting needle size-checker on your crochet hooks as well!)

I will have to make one up once I finish my crocheting for my siblings birthdays. 4 siblings and 3 of them have birthdays this month!
