Paid a visit to A.C. Moore today and brought more cotton yarn and a Leisure Arts crochet book dishcloths. I have 16 dishcloths to go and I don't want to use the same 2 patterns over and over so I now have 16 designs to choose from to finish my dishcloth project. I will start on another set tonight. We went to Costco today too and I really love the place but I can tell that prices are going up even in Costco, the last time I brought a 5 liter bottle of Olive Oil it was about $19.95 or so and now its $25.00 it is still a good price when you consider the fact that less than a liter can cost $6.95 and up in the grocery store. Still we brought some very nice Salmon fillets and Catfish. The next time I go I am going to get a leg of lamb, I really like lamb. I have kept to my promise and I have not worked on my Crochet Lace Shells Afghan or Crazy Stitch Afghan. The Crazy stitch is 95% finished and Crochet Lace Shells 50% but since they are not gifts I can finish them anytime. I hope Hobby Lobby has a 40% off any one item so that I can start buying the yarn for my next afghan project. The project I want to start calls for TLC Essentials 9 skeins by Coats & Clark this yarn at Hobby Lobby is $2.99 per skein so it would take 9 trips to the store, you can only use the coupon one time a day. This means that it will take 2 month's I think to get the yarn because I don't think Hobby Lobby runs the coupon but once a month. I wish it was 40% off you purchase price. I think they would sale a lot more if people could get 40% off the entire purchase. Well off to make another dishcloth. Happy Crocheting and Knitting.

Thursday night and I went to my final crochet class, I really enjoyed the classes. I can't wait until next year to see how things go with the crochet group. I took a picture of the class and will post it later. I have finally found the two magazine's I was looking for and both of them of course have great projects that I wish I could start right now. I have one more dishcloth done so only 17 to go. I am so happy that tomorrow is Friday I really need the weekend. I finished a granny square tonight in class that I started months ago and I did not understand the 8th row, so I asked my instructor tonight and when she explained it to me it made sense and I was able to finish the square its just a practice square but it is a pretty square and I think it would make a nice afghan, by using it as the center and crocheting around it or making several square's an putting stitching them together. Happy Crocheting and Knitting.

2 dishcloths done and 18 more to go and do you know what? I have spent the night on the computer checking my email and visiting www.crochetville.org one of my favorite places to visit I love to read the post and see all the beautiful work that all the ladies produce. I brought a new crochet book tonight at Books-A-Million Hooked Scarves 20 Easy Crochet Projects by Margaret Hubert while I should be asleep I will be looking through this book. I really need to be spending my time working on the 18 dishcloths I still have to crochet. I will do much better tomorrow I promise. I tried to figure out how to add buttons and links to my page but oh no I could not figure it out I am not the worlds best when it comes to blogs I wish it could be made easier. I would like to put a button for crochetville, and my page on 360, and likes to other blogs, and crochet pattern sites. I wish blogger would make it as easy as posting a picture I don't know how to get the right codes, and I don't know how to add counter, calendars, or clocks so I can't add any interest to my blog. Well happy Crocheting and Knitting everybody.

You know some day's I don't know why I try to do anything, I am going to have to start saving my post before I try and post a picture, I just lost my entire post and it was a long one and I really don't feel like typing all of that over again. So I will try an hit the highlights, I had my day's confused and last Thursday was not my last crochet class, I have one more class this Thursday and I plan to take a picture of the class on Thursday with the $7.95 35mm camera I brought at CVS I hope the pictures will be clearer I can have the developed and scan them onto my computer. It's the best I can do for now maybe one day I can buy a digital camera. A few month's ago I brought a leaflet on Ebay Broomstick Lace for the Little Folks by Boye a vintage leaflet that's how I lost my previous post trying to add a picture to show. I need someone to show my how to do the stitch can't figure it out from the instruction and the pictures in a crochet book I have just don't seem to help. I will try again to post the picture. I plan to make myself work on the dishcloths and potholder that my mother and I are giving for Christmas, I really wish I had not let her talk me into this, I like to crochet but I hate to feel like I have to do something but since she paid for the yarn I will have to do the gifts. This is the first and the last time. If I make anything again it will just be a random thing or maybe just maybe afghans. If I can start them at the first of the year and work on them all year long. I am making great progress on the Crochet Lace Shells Afghan I talked about in my previous post but no work on it today unless I have made at least 3 dishcloths.
