Brief Update and an E Hook.

Thank you to everyone who has left a comment on my giveaway post. It's been really nice to get a lot of feedback about what baby items you have already made or like to make. I'm almost 100% positive about which one I'll be making but the drawing isn't until Monday so I'm waiting until then to finalize my decision. I did however, take the advice of several of you and have decided to knit the Baby Surprise Jacket. I went out and bought the pattern from My Sister's Yarn Shop in Uniontown and can't wait to get started.

In other news, you may remember the crocheted cloche I made for a friend earlier this month. Well, she was kind enough to post a picture sporting it! I think she looks super cute in it but then again, she's just that kind of photogenic lady.

I've also been working on a few projects this week (some more than others). Two nights ago, I needed my E hook. My E hook is just the kind of hook that goes missing every other time I need him. He doesn't write or call just doesn't show up one day and then I have to go searching for him. This time, I thought I'd teach him a lesson. I figured instead of tearing the house apart looking for the darn hook (I found him under the couch last time), I'd just go buy another one. I also believe that you can never really have enough crochet hooks. Anyway, on my way home from work today I made a quick stop by the craft store. Would you believe that all the E hooks in the store were sold out. Yes, all. Not one E hook to be found. I told you, that's just the way E hooks are. So instead I bought a C and D. I'm sure he'll come around and show up eventually...
