All-Star Granny CAL

Posted by sallenlouise on October 9, 2007

Hi guys!
Well, I have  started a local Stitch Wits group on Ravelry. I also decided to make a CAL group, Stitch Wit Cals. If any of you are over there, come on in! If you didn’t know, Stitch Wits is the local group that I started for fellow crochet/knit/yarn enthusiasts! If you are in or around the Burleson, TX area, RSVP here. We meet every Tuesday for the time being. As well as one Saturday a month.

 

Here is the CAL that will begin in November.

~I bought my copy from Hobby Lobby for $2.79

If interested in the cal, let me know! If you are not a Ravelry member, that’s OK. You can participate here, just POST a COMMENT. I will be adding a page just for the CAL. So tell you crochet friends that you think might be interested! It will be fun!

I’m not sure how long this would take generally, but there are a lot of squares. (192 actually!) My Goal will be to make 5 squares a week, so 20 squares a month. This will have me finished by November 2008. It will take a total of 13 months. WOWSER! LOL!

Now, let’s see how that all works out! Come on, it will be a lot of fun!

HELP Please, and Other Fixes

Posted by sallenlouise on April 14, 2007

OK, I’m making the mini sock from Loopy Ewes. I have my stitches on the appropriate DPNS. But THEN WHAT???????? It doesnt say to join. So, I’m not sure if I’m supposed to. Arggggggg. I’m going to look around online and find out some answers. PLEASE FEEL FREE to leave some tips!
I have been pattern shopping!! I bought The Candy Lace Shawl , Cabled Tea Cozy Set , The Garden Trellis Shawl , and, I bought the Sierra Poncho that I’m going to convert into a shawl.(this will be so much fun, I’m sure!) Oh, and I signed up with the GCOA today!
My hubby might be home tomorrow. We’re not sure. But what we do know, he will definitely be home by Monday morning. He’s in Corpus at the moment. (this trip inclued Austin,Corpus and San Antonio.)I MISS HIM SO MUCH!
My brother is coming down this weekend!! He says we’re going out to dinner. Isn’t he sweet! Him and Bekki both sang Happy Birthday to my answering machine…..(ohh, and not together, seperate messages!)The goobers, lol!
Ohhhh,. speaking of, my SIL Tina, called and sang HB on my machine March 13th…..LOL, She was just a little early. (This is my hubbys brothers wife.) I have been playing phone tag with them. I either call when the phones is busy, or when they are out. (and vice versa) I will just have to write them snail mail.
Anyhow, we have had some lovely weather drop in. Some tornadoes have touched ground and done some damage, but my area has been OK. It looked pretty freaky out though. Let’s see what the rest of the night holds.
Ohh, Selah posted on her blog again. She loves comments, so, please, drop by. She’s a goober too! (But she’s my goober!) Question…should I part with my bamboo? They are my special hooks. I just love them. DO I HAVE TO SHARE? Ya know, now that I thinking about, I’m gonna let her. BUT IT CAN NOT LEAVE MY VICINITY!!!!! There, now I feel good, and she will feel special! lol.
