Happy Blogversary to me! It's been 4 years since I have been posting on Blogger. I did have a blog on AOL (same name) but I don't think anyone was reading it. Thanks Teresa and Teena!
Because this is my Blogversary, I will be having a drawing for the book "Hooked: A Crocheter's Stash of Wit and Wisdom". It's an interesting read with essays by all sorts of crocheters - Jennifer Hansen, Noreen Crone-Findlay, Amy O'Neil Houck and many more. Just leave a comment and I will draw the name next Sunday and announce the winner next Monday. Unless nobody replies, than whoever posts first will get it....

Not a pattern but Vashti Braha has an excellent resource on tunisian / afghan stitch. I learned to do it when I was younger, but I really haven't done too much with the stitch. But this post made me rethink the tunisian stitch

Double stitch crochet along inspired by Double Stitch: Designs for the Crochet Fashionista, a new book by Erika and Monika Simmons

I would have never thought of this, but this lady makes crochet hats out of plastic bags

Here's a crochet dog sweater pattern for your pooch:

It's a bit warmer here in the US and this "brain freeze" pattern from the Crochet Dude might come in handy...

A lovely crochet flower for you

Interweave giving away knitting, beading and quilting patterns. No, I don't know they don't have free crochet patterns, but it's a good question

Check this out - Monica Kennedy has a great website and has free patterns for round ripple afghans - this one is gorgeous

and she even has a preemie ripple pattern

And she has video tutorials on how to crochet

This is really cute - it's Suzetta Williams Hat of the Month

And last, but certainly not least, Crochet Corner has their first bimonthly issue out - you can read it here:

And of course, I've received no economic incentive to post any of these sites....

Thanks Robin! So nice of you to give links to my crocheting things. You have some great info here - I will have to keep up with this more.

(And I hope I win the book!)
