I finished one blanket got it listed

The person whom requested it bought it and it is ready to ship.
Then same day someone else has requested a similar item- twice as large as the one I just finnished.
this time- only in green. :)
Im looking forward to this.
The yarn Im working with is a super soft squishy yarn.
It is fantastic with a M sized hook.
LOVE it!

as a member of the CLF

I must take a moment to be a minion.
The CLF is the Crochet Liberation Front. a group of people passionate about the art of crochet.
we have a "fearless leader"  someone who got tired of our art being looked down and started the group on ravelry as a joke... then it exploded and became a real thing.  we even have a couple pattern books which rocks.
Dispelling many of the myths of crochet and there are many.
One is that only little old ladies Hook. Nope Not the case.
crochet uses more yarn... not always the case it depends on stitches used.
Crochet is nthing but granny squares and doilies... nope again.

Crochet is a wonderful art that has many many advantages other yarn arts don't.
It can be beauiful open work and drapy or it can be tough enough for a welcome mat. all depends on what it is you are using and technique-

so there is my minion rant for the day.
so if you crochet say it to others Im a hooker and Im proud..

The yarn came- though I had purchased the darker colored yarn I needed this week to work on one of the two hats.. the yarn for the second hat is here. I was able to sneek off to my fave yarn store sitting room and work on the first hat. I also started the second.

they are really turning out nicely. I hope my customer likes them.
