Yeah! It's the weekend.
Signed up for the Crochet Olympics over at both Crochetville...http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=21314&page=1&pp=10 and Craftster.org...http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=74471.0 . The jist of it...you have to start and complete a project during the run of the Winter Olympics. The project has to be challenging...no fair making a bookmark that takes ten minutes. You cannot start until the opening ceremonies in Tornino (appx 2 PM EST on Feb 10), and you must complete by the closing ceremonies on the 26th.
Badrhinogillett, a villager over at Crochetville, posted a link to a cool site of craft graphs. http://www.breienmetplezier.nl/index2.htm I think it's a Dutch site, but it's also in English. She crocheted an Elmo afghan for her daughter. I'm going to attempt a Snow White baby afghan for my great niece. It's about 80 rows, 60 stitches across. It will definately be a challenge; one row has about 20 color changes. I've already bought the yarn (Coats and Clark Red Heart, the 7 oz skeins), and I'm winding each skein into numerous balls. Hopefully, that will cut down on the knotting I had with the Elvis afghan.
Let's see...Dutch Idol tomorrow (go Floortje). German Idol has the week off. American Idol Las Vegas auditions supposed to be Tuesday, but I think it's being postponed in Cincinnati until the wee hours of Wednesday morning. Guess I'll be taping Idol this Tuesday.
