Actually - you are! Even when I'm too busy to catch up on blogs, I always read your blog because it gives me a good insight on what is going on in the world of crochet :)

Considering I've been married a little while, I know exactly where they would get worn and for whom HA! They are cute :)

For me, I normally wear crochet professionally as an accessory. I've been knitting more shawls rather than crochet simply because its less bulky - I'd be looking for other accessory items and ideas.

Hmmm I pinned one of the images (I'm Cris on Pinterest) and +1'd you using Cris Crochets :) Awesome giveaway (I'm a bad crocheter because I hadn't seen this magazine before!)

I'm hurt you didn't use my pattern for that pet bed LOL (just kidding!) Actually, cats LOVE things that crumple down around them creating little dens - I think kitty would LOVE the bed you made for her.

What have I been making... ugh - same things as 2 weeks ago LOL Primarily a knitted ear warmer (which I desperately need to finish out of sheer need of function) and a wrap for my daughter.

As a person that writes patterns and offers them for download on my blog and Ravelry (shameless plug HAHAHA), I think the hardest part IS remembering that not everyone is going to be experienced. While I agree that when patterns are written and a "scale measurement of difficulty" is given, you have to assume that at higher levels, some things are going to be assumptions by the experienced crocheter BUT if you have a more advanced pattern I think it should be written with one level down in experience in mind - how can these people get better if they don't know what jumps you are making.

 

Honestly, I think even the most difficult of patterns can be made readable by the novice crocheter - its just how much space do you want to use :)

I am glad you caught that dropped stitches references - i read the little blurb and was like KNITTING! *laughs* Of course, maybe back then the idea of "dropping stitches" applied to both knitting and crochet, its just with crochet we call it "tearing out stitches" instead. Dunno. Something else I thought was cute was the statement "Whenever women meet, the art of knitting and crocheting is discussed-the newest garments, the best stitches, the prettiest colors.” - OH to live in a world where I could talk crochet with ALL women :)

OHHHH I will definitely get it! - in fact, consider it "already gotten" - how timely for me! I'm going to start a series on my blog to assist with the accountability for me to lose weight. :) It will definitely be saving my life.
