Truly exciting to watch a project come alive under the hands of a talented artist. Thanks for sharing where that yarn donation effort went; I had wondered how he was doing. I love what he's got going on, don't you ?~!

One of your best posts so far this year. Excellent pile of links-I've been gone linkers for the last three-quarters of an hour without realizing !~! That's the best time spent.
These water bottle covers use up bits of yarn and keep the bottles from condensing onto my desk. These are made holding three strands, making a 24 stitch circle and then crocheting UP for fourteen rows to make a cover that fits a square Fiji half liter bottle perfectly. I used a G hook I think-maybe a bit bigger to hold three strands. They throw into the washer and dryer and are coveted by my house guests who try to take one home when I'm not looking !~!

"Be good for goodness sake" plays hugely in my life. I live from the goodness of my heart and I try to live each day so that if I died tonight we would know I had done the best I could that particular day. I love that sentiment in crochet. Thank you for sharing this gentleman with us.

Organization is an ongoing project-I live in the East Bay with husband in 542 sq ft and another 120 for a studio/workspace/tools and storage in the back. Creativity is the key. Using whatever containers come free, and they do regularly, I shift and change where the supplies live and how they are stowed as the projects finish and new ones begin, becoming WIPs in their own right. I love the constant ebb and flow-I grew up in tidal zones and cannot release awareness of the moon cycles. You have thrown us some helpful ideas in this article; thanks.

The blog MemeRose is locked and open only to invited readers. That's unfortunate, I was looking forward to reading and seeing that use of color. I'd love an invite. I have a blog at LyndaLand.blogspot.com if MemeRose wants to see who I am before deciding about an invite...
