This is my new knitting (and crocheting) basket, I got it at the farmer's market this past weekend. It is more red and blue than the picture shows, my kitchen makes everything look a bit pink in the morning. I am reading JD Robb's Creation in Death. I have been busting through novels lately (maybe 25 since the end of the term!)
I have been toying with the idea of learning to crochet for a while now with several friends and my sister urging the corruption upon me. I grabbed a copy of The Happy Hooker (one of the Stitch and Bitch books) and the instructions and diagrams were very helpful. It is so fast!!!

|My first all crochet project.|
And since you are here which fabric do you think looks nicest with the plaid, I ran out of fabric for the sleeves for a prairie sun dress for Badger. The plaid is the same in all three pictures and the bottom is accidentally dyed in washing and a bit brighter that the photo shows.
Off to see what's in your craft baskets! ~ Julia
