Crocodile Stitch Crochet! Video tutorial, photo tutorial and 10 free patterns!
I desperately want to be good at crocodile stitch. I need to be good at the basics first. I haven’t even attempted crochet in months.
Via days of yarning
I started with dinner. Hubby is sick so I ransacked the freezers and made chicken and ground beef soup with green chilies.
Then I started some applesauce bread (which is the only thing not finished).
Next was huckleberry banana bread. I just had a piece and it is sooooooo gooooood!
Then I made me first batch of corn tortillas. Then I turned them into tortilla chip strips for the soup.
Then I made lunch. ;-)
Then I made buttermilk biscuits.
Now I’m getting ready to watch Top Gear and knit (and possibly eat more huckleberry banana bread).
It has been a great Monday.

I need this! :)
Oh, Good, Falafels!
How I wish I had the time or patience to learn to crochet. I would be willing to trade a hand knit item or some Handspun if someone were willing to make the 1st or 3rd down for me :)

A day in the life of Freestyle Moto athlete, Dany Torres: http://bit.ly/XPhFrm
I wish my work day was more like this. Unfortunately, that would require me to have some sort of skill, or you know, know how to ride a dirt bike.
;-; cant believe its a free pattern
Oh My Vishnu!!!!!!
I seriously need to get serious about my crocheting.
These Addi Turbos (circular knitting needles) are on display at Paradise Fibers located in Spokane, Washington! They were custom built for Paradise Fibers by metal artist Tim Biggs to Addi specifications all the way down to the nickel-plated tips. They are Size 150, 7 feet tall, and weigh 56 pounds. I’m curious what diameter those needles actually are!
According to the Guinness World Book of Records, the largest knitting needles in the world are from the U.K.. They measure 3.5m long and have a diameter of 8 cm. That’s about 12ft tall and 3.15 in. in diameter. On March 10, 2008, Ingrid Wagner used the needles to knit a 10 sts x 10 row tension square at the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.
I love Paradise Fibers. The store is just mind-blowingly awesome. Since we only get to Spokane once a year or every other year, I have to content myself with the online store most of the time…
