My best knitting projects were shawls made with jumbo sticks and patterns that promised a Shawl In A Day. I actually fell for that 'Sue, You Can DoIt' come on. Three hundred sixty-five days later I would still be working on the Day Shawl and counting the dozen or so 'J' Hooked ones I had completed in the same three hundred and sixty-five days. I fessed up to this procrastinated promise in The Sabbath Shawl post.
You know this means that all the downsizing of yarn, books, bags and tools over the last year was all for naught! Yep, I'm pretty sure I donated The Great Afghan Book to Goodwill, and I know for sure I once owned a copy of The complete Book of Knitting and Crochet.
Shoot, the Afghan book is probably THE ONE I donated. It's okay, I only paid a dime to get it back.
The Rippling Ridges pattern? It was FREE in Love of Crochet's 'We Miss You' subscription renewal letter that showed up in my mailbox just when I was wanting a Crochet Afghan pattern to make up my new stash of Bernat On Sale Super Saver Skeins in those Trendy Colors. Sorry, I'm not only back to my 1960's Crochet Roots, but back to 'rambling'...again. What's next?
You guessed it....I went for the Love of Crochet come on...'We Want You Back'.
I just love getting that magazine in the mail.
Besides I gotta have 'FREE Pattern #2'.
