    2013 Crochet Resolutions

    My resolution is to make a few shawls for Senior Citizen nursing home wheelchair bound patients. They get cold easily and the pattern I found goes over the shoulder and looks like it will be warm.

    I use scrap ends in the garden in the summer to tie up (hold up) my vegetables & flowers. I can match colors to the plants!!! Sometimes I take multiple longer pieces and chain them together for heavier veggies. They are very soft ties that don't hurt the stems. They work GREAT!!!!!

    Sneaking yarn in the home

    I live alone now so I don't have to hide it anymore. In the past I did have to hide it at times.... my husband didn't understand that I needed more, a different color or even why I just wanted that particular yarn. I tried to make him understand that yarn was my addiction just as computer equipment was his. lol.
