I'm tickled that I'm hearing more variety in the birdsong, that some sweet crocuses bloomed in our garden, and that I've started a blog! So far, this blog has turned out to provide so much of what I was hoping for: comraderie, inspiration, motivation, and education. Education? Yes, I'm getting an education with our cameras, one a pocket digital and one an intimidating digital. I'm a novice, but I'm sure it'll be fun learning what there is to know.

I'm also a novice crocheter. I taught myself a few years ago for simple edgings on knitted projects, then came the snowflakes, then a mini-Babette for Hana's dolls, a few washcloths here and there, up there is the beginnings of a ripple afghan, and now I've joined the hot pads! and potholders swap (link thru that button over to the right). I'm deciding about colors and style now. I've got a healthy stash of Cascade 220, so that'll probably be the yarn, but to choose a pattern - yowsa! that's really tough. I've got my copy of 200 Crochet Blocks by Jan Eaton just like fellow-swapper Kathy (aka Grumperina), but there are 200! I just want to say that I feel like I'm hob-nobbing with blogosphere celebrities with my name alongside the names on that list! - also tickling me. ;-)

What tickles you?

i wanted to crochet a ripple afghan (inspired by posy gets cosy) but ended up choosing a knit pattern ( #53 hydrangea) from Jan Eaton's book 200 ripple stitch patterns....i've only got about 10 inches done so far as i set it aside a while ago (tsk,tsk,tsk....)

(i forgot to mention i'm knitting the ripple afghan in mission falls cotton and the texture and weight is really nice)

I am tickled when I listen to my daughter playing in her room... such creative and expansive worlds in her mind. I am tickled to have finally found my medium, wool. I am tickled to know I am truly happy with what I have. Revelation this!
