    2012 Bernat Mystery CAL and KAL

    I really like this week's square. It reminded me of the All-Star Blanket I made for my nephew last year. I wonder if all the squares are going to be one color. Last year we had such colorful squares, though we did have our share of solid squares.

    Hooks and Planes

    So far I've only flown with hooks once, but I didn't have a problem. I did get a yarn cutter pendant just for the occasion, but that's because the project I was working on at the time was a bunch of motifs. If you don't think you'll need to cut the yarn during the duration of your flight, I wouldn't worry about it.

    Last year I just picked randomly, and for the most part that worked out, but there were a couple of squares where I wished I had chosen differently. This year, though, I'm going to wait to assign the ABC until a square comes up that requires it. Like this week it doesn't matter, since you make one square with each of them.

    The first week is usually easy. Oh! How weird. I'll have to remember that.

    How'd you find that? I checked the blog, and they haven't updated yet.

    What do you think counts as an amigurumi?

    The gurumi part of amigurumi comes from nuigurumi, the Japanese term for stuffed toys. Broken up, nui means sewn (ami means knitted or crocheted) and gurumi means bundle/package. Hope that helps you.

    I'll probably only post here.

    Just how old are you?

    I'll be 28 in a little over a week, and I've been crocheting on a regular basis since I was 24 (I dabbled in it a little when I was 18 and 22).

    The New Girl

    I only saw the promo, but I thought it looked like crochet. I didn't have time to watch it when it was on, but I'll definitely check it out on hulu or something.

    Last year's CAL was in squares, and it's probably the easiest way to do a clue a week.

    Sundrift is my MC, too! So at least if it doesn't end up looking too hot, you won't be alone ^_~

    Zig Zag Afghan - Finally!

    This one has a bit of a story attached to it. I started this pattern a little over three years ago, but let it hibernate for so long because I ran into a problem understanding the pattern instructions (and hadn't stumbled upon this lovely place yet) and then just couldn't get myself to pick it up again until recently. Well, it turned out that the instruction I didn't get back then was due to my misunderstanding the instructions previously. When told to crochet three stitches to make the corner in the afghan, and then to crochet three times in the corner for the next few rounds, I interpreted that as three stitches in each of the three corner stitches. So when the pattern said to slip stitch to the corner stitch, I had no clue which stitch it meant. Luckily, I was able to figure that out pretty quickly this time around, and now it is finally done! The pattern actually had been corrected in the meantime, so I had to improvise a little on the border, but I think it came out looking pretty good.

    Do you identify your hooks by color?

    I have way too many H hooks to do that. I generally keep my hooks grouped by size.

    Do you weave in ends as you go or after?

    I was going to say that I usually save them for the end, but I realized that I only do that for color changes. If I run out of one ball and add on another, I typically crochet a few more rows, then weave those ends in sooner than later.
