Handy Dandy Crochet Roll


For those of you who don’t know, I’ve taken up crochet this year. I don’t profess to be good at it in any way, but I have come up with some cool little things I plan to give as gifts ;) With crochet comes some…supplies…and those supplies have to be managed efficiency to keep yourself together (not to mention the stuff is easy to lose). I was using the little zipper case that came with the hooks that I stole borrowed from my mom, but it only had provisions for half of the hooks and nothing for my scissors, needles, or stitch markers. Plus, yarn had to be toted along separately. With as often as I take crochet along with me for anticipated waits it was becoming a problem.

It's Lonely in Here...

I know this is a wee little blog with only a few ideas, and I'm hoping to get more up in the near future (three baby showers are encouraging things...), but it would sure be fun to share my antics with a wider audience! So, if you come across some nonsense of mine that you think any of your friends would like, please feel free to share it! I have no problem with people copying my projects - I wouldn't put them up here if I did. Plus, I love to see how people put their own spin on things. Also, if you aren't a Facebook fan yet - here's a linky for you.

There's some perks with this membership too - I may just start giving stuff away as prizes... ;)

A Lesson in Record Keeping (and showing some teeth)

I’m usually pretty good about keeping track of my important papers. I can tell you where my mortgage papers are; they’re in a heap in the closet. My bank statements are online because if they send me paper ones they end up in my pile of important things “to sort” (even though I know it’ll never get done). And so on and so forth. But I at least know which pile everything is in.
