My mom sent me the Happy Hooker crochet book by Debbie Stoller, THANKS MOM! Here are a couple of the things I've made out of it so far:
Autumn has snagged a scarf and wants a potholder in hot pink and black though. I'm thinking JC and Mikayla are going to want some potholders too. Plus BH wants me to make one, popular item! I've learned alot from this book already, like my half double crochet that I thought was a half double crochet was really a heirloom half double crochet, oops..........It's also given me the courage to take on projects I've never tried before, like the baby sweater, I sewed up the seams today, it's looking good.
