2 crafty. 2 many ideas. 2 much yarn. 2 many pattern books. 2 many craft supplies collecting dust. Time to get moving. Past time to define myself. This begins my journey.

Working on WIPS
One of my goals in 2011 - other than concentrating on baby items for the charity I volunteer for - is to finish up some WIPs that have been hanging around. I have, oh, maybe 5 or more years worth of projects to complete. Well, it might not be that bad. But I do have a lot. Over the summer when fleece was on sale, I bought 4 panels to edge in crochet. I think they're 2 1/2 yards and 60 inches wide. Nice and cozy, with a personal touch. Here's the first. I ran out of yarn before I could complete the final round, but I think I like it this way better - not so ruffly.
I have to make a plug here for the awesome tool I have to make the evenly-spaced notches in the fleece. It's a rotary blade called the Skip Stitch blade. Look it up on the Internet (using Goodsearch to help Online Angels, of course) and check it out.
