Spring 2008 Interweave Crochet coverUPDATE: The preview of the Spring 2008 Interweave Crochet is up. I hope you enjoy!

Kids, I missed's fourth birthday! It was two weeks ago. Happy birthday to us!

Also, I'm over a third-of-a-month tardy in shouting out National Crochet Month. Doing anything special to celebrate or promote crochet this month? There's a giant hoo-ha going on at the NatCroMo group on Ravelry.

It's always exciting to see crochet covered in the mainstream media. And though it's not the best writing the New York Times can offer, this article about the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef project is awesome.

How to make a dc granny squareI've been surprised over the last year to read occasionally about people's confusion when beginning to make squares for the Babette Blanket. After overcoming my assumption that the squares are super simple, I did a demo on how to make them at the Knit Out & Crochet Too. I blogged about it at the magazine, and hope my drawn-on images don't do more harm than good (Skitch is so cool, I don't know when to stop).

Moving on to very-well-done images, Sister Diane recently posted a great tutorial on How to Crochet a Wire Flower Pendant [via Craft].

Finally, today is my sixth wedding anniversary. In a sea of magazine submissions, copy editing, and tech editing (with an added sea of marking, homework, and studying), the Mr and I are doing our best to carve out good time to celebrate. A wildly expensive night out is planned!

Happy anniversary. Well, both of them I guess. Now to go check out the mag preview.


Oh, can't wait for the issue to arrive. There are some great drool over patterns plus some yummy, little, more likely to be tackled by me patterns.
