FM March 9, 2009

My leg is healed, my cold is almost gone and the daffodils are starting to bloom. Plus Noreen Crone-Findlay is back writing the blog "Hankering for Yarn" I am a happy camper:) So here's some articles and patterns for you today....

If you're like me, you can't resist a yarn sale. But what do you do with it after you bought one skein of this or that - here's some solutions (although it is in knitting terminology) to all that yarn
you bought at 40% off.....

I never worked a job where I could crochet while I worked. Maybe if I could crochet with my feet, I could. But I "keyboard" (type) alll day. Never leave your crochet hooks unattended or you might lose your job

Want to know exactly where your yarn is coming from? Want to be sure the sheep are being taken care of properly? You can invest in a share in a fiber farm. I'm sure it will do better than most stocks these days....

I've already said that I think "yarn bombing" is pointless. However, the world proves me wrong and now there's a book about "Yarn Bombing". I'm not kidding. Too bad they don't need a book about yarn all over the house, I'd have that one covered;)

Two contests coming up

Contest for a crochet dvd - it runs until March 31, 2009.
http://crochet.craftgossip.com/national-craft-month-contest/2009/03/03/

This contest is a drawing for the "Annie's Attic Crochet Kit of the Month". Don't get excited - it's only for the first kit, a felted crcohet bag. It has a skein of wool, the directions for knit or crochet, and a button (no hooks or needles). To enter this contest, just leave a comment in my blog. I will have a drawing for the winner next Sunday and announce the name. Please make sure you leave an email where I can reach you.

No economic stimulus was given for these postings;)

_enjoy_
