    Does anyone know the name of this pattern?

    Yes, but I'll have to locate it! I think it's called "Diamond Trellis"!!

    I have pierced ears, that I pierced myself many years ago. Hadn't worn any for a long time, and they almost closed up on me! I had stopped wearing my watch--since I didn't need it anymore for work, after I retired. But having three crochet classes, I started wearing it again, because the places we crochet at have clocks that aren't very visible from where we sit. (But--half the time--I forget to wear it!!)

    Yes, I do have experience with the self piercing earrings! Years and years ago, (I'm not telling how many years, but probably half of my 74 years ago...... 😉) I bought a pair and did my own piercing! Nowadays, I sometimes don't wear earrings for a while, then the holes almost close! I should wear some heavy ones for a few days and open them up a little, I guess.

    I can really relate to WIPS being out of control!!!!! I went through only 10 of my bags of yarn and miscellaneous today--and MOST of them were more UFOs than yarn!!! I really need to get this under control!!!!

    Hi-back at 'ya, Mary! Did you get to crochet last night? My Crochet Club had its regular meeting this morning, and I am close to getting yet another prayer shawl done! Yay! I'll be able to take 4 or 5 in to the Hospice Monday! Then I can box up a couple of boxes of lap afghans for the Veterans' hospitals over the weekend. Maybe that will give me a little more room!
