It was the reason I wanted to learn to crochet in the first place -- the crocheted stone cover. I used this pattern by Margaret Oomen over at Purl Bee. I'm about to unravel the one I'm currently working on because I see mistakes. I'm still a beginner crocheter, I don't count and can barely read a basic pattern. But it is a start and I'm thrilled to be at this point.
The blue gaptastic scarf is something I can work on at night -- the yarn is so thick, the needles so big and the stitches huge. A person almost can't make a mistake on this.
I'm still saving avocado peels and pits for dyeing with but had an urge to do the toothpick trick again even though I've never in my life gotten an avocado plant to grow taller than about 8". I found the magenta orchid at the grocery store. I bet houseplant sales go way up in January.
Thanks for coming by here. xo
