Weekend challange

Seems that I can not tell 7" from 8". We are doing a weekend challenge at AC4C of knitted and crocheted squares. And I made all of mine 8"...industrious you ask, brain dead I answer.
I have an infected tooth, or more rightly gum, teeth are just a by product, and can't get into a dentist for a week. So I am doing everything I can to live with it, while working, and taking care of the puppies who let me live with them, and the man.
And I won't even get on the rant about him with a cold, on the couch for days, moanin like a banchee and swearing he is going to die and can I bring him something, while I get sick and he tells me to take an asprian...okay I am getting on that rant.
He is a good man, a sweet man and does the things I won't or can't do....he catches mice. I am terified of mice. He unstoppes the toilet, cleans up after sick puppies and brings me ice cream when I need it. But still a man.
So I am getting said man to make me a templet...7x7 to carry with me. Then maybe I won't be so brain dead.

My First Badge

The “MacGyver” Badge (Level One) Earned by using ponytail holders purchased for $.25 due to package being opened, as stich markers on size 17 needles. Worked great and would have made Macgyver proud.

The Crochet Dude

I have just found The Crochet Dude. He was on one of the two PBS craft shows I watch and this man is wonderful.
He speaks crochet in a way that is easy to understand. So I am now following him on facebook and twitter.
I admire his talent and it is great to find someone who speaks to my inner crocheter...knitting has always been my thing.
I crochet and the edges wander in and out at will. I have frogged more crochet than I would like to admit under oath. So I was looking for some basic directions and found that the internet is like going to the library in my pj's and I am pretty sure I am not allowed to do that.
So if you don't know him check him out.
