Hurry up and wait...


I'm having a hard time waiting... it seems that all the crochet magazines come out all at the same time, then it is a very long time before the next flurry of issues. It would be great if the powers that be, got together and decided to publish on alternate months or something... or better yet, what if they all published EVERY month! Yeah, that might be a little overwhelming, it might not give you enough time to complete a project or two before the next issue arrives.

On the other hand, the Driftwood Cap from Interweave Crochet seems to be doing very well. I see at least 36 caps have been made by Ravelers. People are making it in variegated yarns, solids, they are making it for men and adjusting it for kids. Ravelers are making it for ...themselves! And get this, many people are making it multiple times!

Seeing a project in print... it's really exciting. Seeing someone make a project... that's really exciting. But when someone likes the project well enough to make it MULTIPLE TIMES that's amazing. Very, very cool.

Tonight is the Crochet and Chat at the Library night. I'll be there.
The photo is Chief "sorting" his first wave of Halloween candy that arrived from friends at school. He is so funny.
