Late for a Very Important Date

Late to post, late to visit, behind in knitting and crocheting...(though I do have something to show you if you keep reading that involves yarn). Since I've been so late I missed 2 weeks, I'm posting this one early. (YOP badge and link in sidebar)

You've no doubt since this in my side or on Facebook or others blogs. Superpoints, a place to shop, clip coupons, play games, watch video's, do surveys and spin for lucky bonus points. Convert your points in to a gift card and or money. I convert mine into Amazon Gift Cards to help buy
these school text books. Used school text books for kids in need at my Darling Daughters school. This picture represents over $700.00 in used text books, and only takes care of 1 student. To date, I've donated $100.00 in Amazon Gift Cards towards this cause, and I believe my Darling Daughter's earned 70 ish? I've forgotten what she told me.
Have made good headway on this afghan since the picture (which was taken in order to do last weeks post.......see how behind I am). This afghan is for Bridge and Beyond and is called The End of Summer. When this is completed, which I hope will be soon...I hope to get back to Sea and Sand Ghan.

I've not made much headway on my list for YOP, but hope to in the near future. Join us and see what everyone is up to. (A plea to all my YOP friends, would you please please please, purdy please get rid of the captchas's on your blog. Many of you also use approvals, in which case you're doing double and really don't need the captcha's. AND, with the blogger filters you really don't need them, even if you're not using approvals. It soooooooooo slows down visiting. Most have to be done 2 or 3 times because they aren't readable).

If you'd like to help kids get needed text books, and or earn money for you and your family/ or gift cards. Click above superpoints badge or link. Let me know if you join, happy to help you get started. Joining is quick and easy. 3 steps:
  • register

Well, it's Sunday again. The first day of the week, though it always seems like the last day of the week to me.

YOP...not much going on there. I did finish my cable scarf, photo HERE. Fairly pleased with that, but don't think I'm yet ready to begin the cable skirt I want to make myself.

Feather and Fan Afghan, Sea and Sand is in slow motion. Or at least it seems that way to me. I don't feel like I'm making the headway I was there for awhile. Thinking, I need to start something else to get a fresh start and come back to it with more energy! We'll see.

No new pictures, the couple of rows completed since you saw the last piece....just not worth it, you wouldn't be able to tell any difference.

Been busy spinning to help earn points to convert to amazon gift cards in order to be able to purchase school text books for kids without. Read about it Here.

Thrilled to report Bridge and Beyond is listed in a recently published book, "Crochet Saved my Life".

Hard to believe we're in the month of August already, where does time go? YOP badge and link in sidebar. Join Us.

Sweet Saturday Sweet Lady

I going to tell you today about a friend I met here on the internet, blogging. She's a crocheter...not surprising I would connect with a fellow crocheter in the blog land for sure. She's also a published author.

I don't want to give away too much information about her book; but I do want to tell you to visit her on her blog, follow her on Facebook and or Twitter. Subscribe to her newsletter for a discount on her latest book, "Crochet Saved My Life".

Her name? Kathryn Vercillo
Her Blog? Crochet Concupiscence (be sure and add her to your blog log)

I was surprised, and thrilled when she informed me she listed my charity Bridge and Beyond
in the resource section of her book. What a sweet and thoughtful thing to do. And so, I give you a sweet act, by a sweet lady on Sweet Saturday.

Cable Scarf Completed

This is my first knit cable scarf. I love the yarn, the colors and the look of the cables. Prior to this the only time I had tried my hand with cables was with a wash cloth....Big mistake, cotton is so much harder to work with, no give to pull the stitches to make the cables. I have a cable knit skirt, I'd really like to make myself, but felt I needed a bit more practice with cables. Thus the scarf.

I used 3 different cable hooks/needles to see which I liked best; also good practice.

However...the scarf is much smaller then I had hoped. It's about 4 inches wide which is more narrow then I like them. And, it's shorter then I like; but ran out of yarn. In fact, only one edge is trimmed. I tried my hand with a knitted edge vs a crocheted edge. Normally I don't edge my scarves, but thought it might make it a bit widder....silly move, as I didn't have nearly as much yarn as I needed. And it's a wee bit tight in one area. Hopefully that will give a bit after blocked?

I decided I'd frog the edge so the scarf would be the same..........but, couldn't. Somehow, there was a bit of a snag and it wasn't coming out nicely; so then I grabbed my crocheted hook to get from causing further damage and........so, the scarf is edged on one side. Argh

So, when it's blocked I'll see the finished size and determine from there to whom it should be gifted/donated. I had hoped it might work for a student program my Daughters involved in, but am afraid it's too small. I'm also hopeful, the edge no edge isn't a huge deal.

It's Friday folks, make your way around to see all the finished objects on Friday. See badges and links in sidebar.

**must remember to grab darning needle and work in my tail**
