Crochet Insider

I found Crochet Insider awhile back and I really like the articles and the focus on crochet as an artform. Unfortunately, they don't update often. I sometimes forget about the site and when I remember, I visit it. Today, I just noticed a small note at the bottom of the page that said the next issue won't be up until March. So, I guess I have to wait. I wish there was an RSS feed on the page, so I didn't have to check for updates.

Crocheting Hiatus

Since it has been awhile since I have been able to crochet (being the overworked grad student that I am), I decided to update this blog with the small bits of crochet love that I have been able to pursue. Yesterday, we went to Barnes and Noble to hang out and I thumbed through the latest edition of Family Circle's Easy Crochet. There were a few patterns that I was interested in and I almost bought it. Then I reminded myself of the other patterns that I already own that I want to get through when ever I can find some time. There was a very nice special advertisement from Bernat with project for the home. I definitely downloaded the ones for making boxes. I love using boxes to stash the clutter around my home and these crochet ones are very attractive. There was also an ad for a very chic Princess Shrug that I have plans to start.

Aside from perusing magazines, someone at my church started probing for any interest in people crochet squares to make afghans for the homeless. I emailed her letting her know to count me in. I would really like to start using my talent for something more than much as I enjoy all the little sweaters that I make.
