Mike and I both have birthdays this month, a day apart, the 25th is his and the 26th is mine. And I already bought myself a present, I ordered two books on crochet from Amazon and they are going to be here any day now. Both books are by Jan Eaton. I checked the 200 crochet blocks out from the library and I love it. And I’ve been reading and viewing all the posts on the ripple stitch along and longing to join in. So I also ordered 200 ripple stitch patterns and now I’ll have to find time to actually complete an afghan. That will be a first for me.
The colors in the 200 crochet blocks are just fantastic. I love her combination of hues. And the stitch patterns are really cool. I imagine that the ripple stitch book is as great as the block book and I am really looking forward to their arrival. So I may have to put critter creating on hold, after I finish the amigurumi ferret of course.
And I’m thinking of setting up an Etsy store to sell off some of this stuff I keep making. I just wonder if anyone would buy any of it….
Oh, and speaking of Mike, his old punk band is getting together at our house on Saturday to work on songs and maybe recording or live show or something. So if there are any Nervebreakers fans out there, keep watching this spot for more news. Or check their MySpace page here.
