I'm Back!!!!

I went to Canada to see my grandparents and cousins. I had a lot of fun and met some of my new cousins. The trip was fun but it was a 20 hour drive their and 18 drive back!!!! My dad does not like to fly so we have to drive to our designated vacation spot. We split the driving into two days. about 10 hours each day. I mostly crocheted and slept during the car ride ( My dad made us leave and 6 in the morning!) While Sitting in the car I made an Ipod cozie and a bunch of Heart Squares that I will soon sew together and make a baby blanket. Unfortunently I can not find my camera so I will show you them later.

I purchased the book Stitch'n Bitch Crochet The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stroller!!!! I love this book!! It is very well written and is detailled on it's directions. It also had great pictures and drawings. This book is great for begginers and professionals.
I am making a purse out of this book. It is called Fat-bottom bag. It has a rounded rectangle shape to in and has hoops for handles. I love it am about halfway through it on the 3rd day!!! The yarn I am using is Sugar and Cream Confectionary colors, in Pistachio. The yarn is made of 100% cotton. I really like the color and the handle bars are a tan color and they are made out of wood.
I'll keep ya posted!!!

What do you think of her patterns? I have just plain Stitch 'n Bitch, being more of a knitter type (although I ought to learn to crochet at some point . . . although I suppose one thing at a time for beginners?), and a lot of the patterns are not only too hipster for my taste, but are dated hipster. I mean, there's a lot of good stuff in there, but there's also a lot of phenomenally ugly scarves, and what have you.

Um, lemme clarify--I know she's not the designer of most of the projects, just the compiler. But still.

I'd have to agree with you some of the things are a little hipster but over all I do like her patterns.
