haha!  last summer I went to my husbands family reunion....surrounded by people I'd never met...and somebody asked me what I was crocheting...and the whole thing sort of snowballed from there...

After that the people were kind of scared of me, and stayed away...so I got some excellent crocheting done!

be careful, it is addictive, and it is a gateway drug to the rest of the fiber arts...

ACCKK!!  You're so right!  Since starting to crochet not quite 2 months ago I've already had forays in to kool-aid dyeing, bought a winder and swift, become an expert on all types of natural fibres, researched spinning, and traveled far and wide to ALL LYS's within 40 miles.  I've been drooling over yarn so much that my dd has picked up the lingo from me.  It's so funny to the lys ladies to hear an almost-4-year-old piping, "Look at all this yummy yarn, mommy!"  She even got me a 10% discount at one store because she was so enthusiastic and cute Grin 

I do feel sorry for my sewing machine, George, though.  I've neglected him for quite a while now.  I'll be crocheting in my craft room and I'll feel a malevolent stare boring into my shoulders. Looking up at George I see him look over at the pile of cut fabric ready to be sewn together. Guiltily, I look away and mutter, "Just a few more rows and I'll be right over, I promise."  Of course, that doesn't happen, but I will start sewing again just as soon as I finish this last project...  Huh Roll Eyes Wink

haha, last summer for our big vacation, I forced my family to go to massachusetts so I could tour all the wonderful  yarn stores in new england...I also timed it so that "by coincidence" we were passing back through pennsylvania on the exact day that the knitting and crochet guild conference was going on at Valley Forge.....


After a while they stop whining and just accept it.

here's my lovely package freom superhooker, which actually arrived on my birthday! great timing Smiley



I got a pair of yoga socks which was on my list, and there were a whole load of other surprises in the box when I opened it up. The ribbon yarn is going to finish off a project which I started making then ran out of yarn, and there is a sweet skull badge made out of clay, and also a copy of superhopoker's zine I've never read one before so it was really interesting.

Thanks again Cheesy

I have gotten some amazing packages lately and have not been very good about posting.  So, here are my July wishlist packages.

From andrethecat a HUGE box of sock yarn.  I was expecting a couple skeins, hopefully enough to make a pair of socks and then I opened the box and saw there was enough yarn to much 6 or 7 pairs of sock!  Thanks andrethecat.



I got some fabulous handspun yarn from goldfish girl.  I don't know what I'm going to make with it yet but I keep looking at it and thinking how pretty it is.  She also included some yummy soap.  Thanks goldfishgirl.



And from doe_eyes i received an amazing bag.  I already have it filled with stuff.  It is the perfect size.  She also sent a sock monkey kit and some bath salts that smell so good.  Thanks doe_eyes.

I had sent Ezrib a crochet hook holder and also some fabrics for a potion quilt - and an embroidered eye of newt to go in her potions quilt. She has been really under the weather so I thought I'd post up a shot of all I sent... and of course I just noticed the pic is blurry...

I think you guys will get the drift though - the hook holder is a bit longer than most since she uses wooden hooks - which I am starting to consider as well - next time Snobby Lobby has them on sale I am going to see what all the wooden hook tadoo is about...

Cute stuff!  I love that "eye of newt"! do you do that by hand, or with a machine?
