Crochet Queen

I can crochet really fast. I made this afghan in record time. I really like the way it turned out. I used the stitches from another pattern that I like to use to make large blankets. I basically didn't do the double crochet rows and the blanket looks a bit lacy but was super fast to crochet. I've already started a granny square blanket with lots of greens in it.

Of course, now I've been sidetracked by my need to finish the scarf I was working on to teach a class. Also, I just had to try out a new stitch for a baby blanket and have that started. I'm also knitting up a quick baby hat for a gift. Actually, I need to make several more for gifts. I can make them for gifts now that I have perfected the pattern and am selling it online and at Knit Happens yarn store.

Listened to a bit of Ray Bradbury reading his own tales and I'm not sure that I love him reading his own stuff. I did listen to him read Fahrenheit 451 and I guess I got used to it. It's just cool that he's still alive.

Finished reading The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher and now on to Barbara Kingsolver's The Lacuna. I just found out that a friend read it and loved it. Also, just found out that it has Frida Kahlo, et al in it and I am very interested in reading this book. Going to download Infidel too since that's my book group's next pick.

Hmmm. Been watching a lot of TV lately. There are reruns but Damages is new and so is Big Love. Got the Grammy's on DVR for my son. Heard they weren't that fun to watch so glad I can speed through it. Still watching American Idol try-outs. Those shows are really the best part of the entire process.

We all watched Super Size Me last weekend and my disgust with fast food lasted about 4 days. I grew up on fast food. What are you gonna do? Still trying to avoid it as much as possible. Time watch the latest episode of House and knit!
