September the start of Change 1

  Maybe it’s because I’ve always been a bit of a geek.        I loved school with all of my heart, I had a library card when I was  three and you had to sign your name to get it, I remember battling learning to sign my full name just so I could get the […]

Avante Garde Crochet…Shake it up 4

Hooksters, Crochet Aficionados, Yarn Lovers…Lend me your ears or eyes as the case may be… A wonderful member of the CLF has made a very important point on the CLF Message Board on Ravlery. There seems to be a rut in design happening. Now let’s not blame the designers over much, but we have to acknowledge that […]

Happy Birthday Crochet Kharma! 4

Yesturday was my birthday, my gift from husband was a trip out to my favorite bookstores, which is a long drive through pretty country side. This one book store has all manner of treasures, I know if I’m looking for something funky, out of the ordinary, or a subject that has little information on it, […]


Hats… 8

Recently I asked on the CLF Facebook fan page, “Do you crochet hats? Do you wear them besides in winter?” The responses were quite amazing, it appears that I am not the only hat loving crochet fiend! I love wearing hats, recently though I have gotten rather sick of my hat collection and want to […]


Crochet Time…

I have a broomstick belt that needs another five rows, a half done wash cloth, the back of a sweater, half an afghan, three […]


2010 Crochet Awards: The perks of being Fearless Leader 2

I’m getting so excited; The Flamies are coming! The Flamies are coming! It’s funny some people have interpreted Flamies to mean we’re putting down crochet, and have missed out on the fact that the standard of the CLF for all members to bear, is the Flaming Hook of Justice! The awards are named after our […]

I’ve been meaning to show off my special hook. My dear friend and CLF member, Jimbo creator of “Dippy” the world’s largest hook, created this fabulous hook for me. It’s so special and unique, it’s made from the core of my good friend “Dippy.”


Holiday Crochet: A few tips on gifting.

I’ll get back to my regular schedule programming of putting up cool crochet ideas for the holiday mad crafting season, but I thought I should take a moment and give some gifting advice. So often in forums and in email groups I hear the sad tale of hard working crocheters who lovingly make gifts for […]


Experts make it look easy… 2

Regardless of the craft, event, activity, an expert is going to make something look easy. I remember watching cooking shows on PBS when I was a kid, and then “trying it at home.” I was always so frustrated when I couldn’t make those fancy icing flowers like they showed me on T.V.! In fact, I […]
