You have lots of cool projects going on. I love having multiple projects and then starting something new.

I looked at Hip Knits a B&N tonight. Yes I noticed it had crochet too, which is fine by me since I'm a better crocheter, but it does make the title...well wrong.


thats a whole lot of knittin' and bloggin' right there! very nice top - for work? love the albino! Cheers


Thanks, Vera. :) Comments like yours make me feel less crazy. Ha! And yes - there's enough crochet there for them to have changed the title: "Hip Knits with Some Crochet!"

Yes, I should've said it's for work - I changed my blog entry 'cause of your question. :) You like the caterpillar? I think I do to in a sort of twisted way. It's just SO weird to knit!


i got the hip knits when i joined the crafters corner or crafters choice or whatever that book club is. i wasn't impressed and wouldn't have ordered it had i gotten a look at it. but it's got kid stuff in there, and i'm always looking for kid patterns -- all of my friends are breeding in captivity


I like the yarn you're using for Doug's sweater -- may I inquire what it it?

I just got "Hip to Crochet" in the mail -- mainly 'cuz of the cover scarf. The rest of the projects -- actually not too bad. Worth a peek if you run across it at the bookstore.


Exactly, Maryse. Not something you'd go out of your way to purchase (certainly not at full price!) but there should be one or two things in there for everyone. Yep - cute baby/kid stuff too.

Amy - I'll come clean. It's TLC Amore in Plum Print. This stuff is seriously soft & wears great (contrary to what some Klisters have said :::wink::::) A little pricey for what is basically low-end acrylic, but I really like how the variegation is working up - no color pooling! Yeah!

I have Hip to Crochet too. You're right - it's worth a gander. :)


I think you're the only blogger I know who has more projects in the works than I do. Except you actually make progress. I just dust off the platic bags once in a while.

Who's Wendy?


I've always wondered why everyone freaks out when Wendy strays a bit from her usual. Wendy's server is down - Oh My God, Wendy must be in the hosptial with a brain annerism! Come on guys, give her a break.

Besides, I think Larry's Pat the Cat can give Lucy a run for her money.

Oh and the albino - I'm sure it will morph into a beautiful red/white/blue butterfly.

Lisa in Oregon

Hey Bron...Been sick...ugh. Just catching up on my "regular" blog reads. My you are a busy woman. :) I got the new Ann Budd in the mail (forgot I told Crafter's choice to send it). I love the Knitter's handy one and the new one is just as good. Course, I never finish anything so....sigh. :) L
