well, i really should finish one project before i start another. lol     do you ever do that, put one down and start another.   i guess i just get bored or stumped.    i have an afghan that i started last winter that i really need to put together and edge.  but, my squares don't all match(size), so i have been putting off finishing it.     how lazy is that?

I do not believe that there is one single person who crochetes or knits that have finished every single project, it's just not possible.

Besides it is a fall/winter project fo rme, it's the only time I can sit down in the evenings.

Well you tell the ortho guy that you don't have time to be out with a bum shoulder, you got crocheting to do. It won't be long until the holidays and us "frugal handcrafters" have to get started.

You need to go online and sign up to receive the free Coats & Clark catalog from Herrschners.
It's all crochet. The link on the catalog is coatscollection.com


It is packed full of yarn selections, colors and kits. I had mine in the recycle box and was standing looking at it while waiting on them to open up and got inspired again. I'm ready to crochet some ponchos. I like to look through the catalog and get ideas for color matches and projects. I actually found a kit I am going to order. You can't beat it for the book and the yarn. All I provide is the crochet hook.

I do an awful lot of crocheting and stained glass work hobby not proffesional at either one ..I bought a new software package on ebay that allows me to scan pictures into my computer, transfer them over to my rapid-resizer software for paterns. It's great you can make a patern for either one crochet or glass, probably cross stitch too with this. I paid $15.00 bucks for it.

Thanks for the links, HB.    Well, I took out the new cotton yarn that I bought at the going out of business sale at the Rag Shop.    I am just going to work on some small , quick and easy things with the cotton.   It did not seem to bother the shoulder too much.  I am going to Wally world tomorrow and see if they have the looms.   I could not find it on their website.  Thanks for getting me inspired.
