I'm working on an afghan for my nephew's wedding the end of June but don't know if I'll actually get it done - I love the pattern but I used a variegated and the said, wonderful pattern, is lost in the yarn and so I can't decide if I actually want to finish it.  May have to come up with something else instead.

That's all in the crochet world at this time.

Esjay82 you must be busy busy! and i thought i liked to start things Smiley

Homerof2 if you want you can post a picture and we can tell you what our thoughts on it are. i love variegated yarn for simple patterns to show off the yarn but i think soilds or changing yarns are best if you want to display a pattern

right now i am working on the luna lovegood sweater http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=184172.0 I started it yesterday and just started the body this afternoon. I also found an ebook for crochet felted purses so I have started a modified version of one in the book. The ebook is on Wowio - you need to have a non free (gmail, yahoo) email to sign up and you can download books for free - but if anyone wants the book you can PM me with your email address and I can email it to you. (if this isn't against any rules)

this is the book at amazon http://www.amazon.com/Crocheted-Pursenalities-Great-Felted-Bags/dp/1564777502/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1211332005&sr=8-1

zellabella tell me about it.. its only when i list the things i'm doing i think ooh maybe i should try and finish some!!! lol! but i've done quite well recently with finishing things, and lots dont need to be finished for a while, they're sposed to be ongoing projects.. atleast thats what i'll keep telling myself! haha!

Homerof2 i would like to see your blanket if you dont mind showing it?

and Sewpink what size hook and yarn would you use to make a good felted purse? what stitches are best? i experimented a bit a while ago but i was just wondering what you think?

i haven't felted anything from crochet yet so i'm not too sure. i've felted from knitting but not crochet yet so this will be my first - the book said to use a m hook with a single strand of cascade 220 - single crochet.

the basic instructions for the bag i am making said to chain 86 - join with sl st and sc in round until it measures 9 inches. you sew the bottom seam. there are also instruction for a flap and a strap but i am probably going to make those different.

if you send me your email i can send you the book. there are 20 projects in it.
