New yarn, new projects-yea!!
I cannot believe how exciting that can be. Of course that is why I have a basket for unfinished projects.
Your socks are great, by the way.

Seem to be great prices for crochet patterns. I hate to pay a lot, especially since I don't know if I will like the pattern until I se it. I cannot believe that there is a Harley Davidson Logo afghan pattern. I have to see if my friend's son would like me to make it for him.

It is great to see so many 4 ply yarns. I hate to have to go through all types of pages to find the correct yarn. I did not realize how many 4 ply yarns were available.
I will definitely bookmark this page!

I am glad to find discount crochet yarns. I am a beginner crochetor and hate to spend a fortune on projects. It might be fun to try it and not spend a small fortune.

Knitting for yourself is weird, I know. I usually knit for my 2 grandchildren or friends. I finally knitted myself a poncho. I was thrilled and amazed that I love it!

Why am I looking at Christmas patterns in Febuary? I guess I realistically know that I have enough projects to keep me busy until next Christmas!

I liked the Leo pattern, so of course now I have another project to knit. Maybe I should consider completing the 3 started projects I have waiting for me.
Why is it always more fun to start something new??!!

It is usually hard to find bead crochet info and materials, so I am happy to see it available here. I like the idea that other crafts are also available. I like discounts- so keep them coming!

Thd bogus lace shawl is great. I have gotten different effects by using larger needles than recommended by the yarn. The hot damn pattern, which I found on the internet. created a great look for scarfs and afghans.
It amazes me how different something will look, depending on the needle size and pattern used.

Glad to see the book, Knitting With Beads. It is something I wanted to try but have not found out much about.
Also, I dislike purchasing an unknown book, so I was glad to see it recommended.
I will try to get a used copy at Amazon.

I will try ebay and see what happens.
This site seems to have some things that I have not come across on other sites.
