We need sponsors!!!!

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m the new CAL Administrator in the Crochet on Ravelry group.  However, I’m also helping out with COR’s Crocheted Finished Object of the Year (CFOY) contest.

For the month of December, we’re opening it up to all members to post pictures of crocheted items they’ve made this year – anything, as long as it was FINISHED in 2008.  After some discussion, the mods have decided to even allow items that were started before 2008, as long as they were finished in this calendar year.  It can be anything, from anybody – even professionals are included, though they have their own category (no fair pitting professionals against newbies, is it?). As I said, it can be any item, but each item can only be entered once, in a single category.  (In other words, if you have something that would fit into two or more categories, you have to choose which one to enter it under, because it can only be entered once.)

The categories are:

The one thing we’re short on?  Sponsors.  We are in need of approximately 20 prizes for the winners, and only have 3 volunteers so far.  Some people have been contacted but not replied, but our biggest problem is simply a shortage of people to contact to ASK for sponsorship!

(And here’s where I finally get to the point; yes, I can be wordy.)

SO!  Are you an LYS owner?  A pattern designer?  An Etsy shop owner?  A spinner?  A stitch-marker-maker?  Would you like to donate a prize for one of our winners?

Anything that is in any way crochet-related is welcome.  Yarns, patterns, hooks, stitch markers, hook cases… you get the idea.  If you’re interested, please, contact me!  Either leave a response here, or, if you’re not comfortable doing that, you can email me.  yarnkrazykreationz [AT] who [DOT] net.

Thanks!!!! 😀

It’s incredibly frustrating….

… when you’re working on an ever-increasing pattern, and you’re down to the last stretch of one row… only to find a mistake you made at the BEGINNING of the previous row.

Seriously.  I’m at row 2 of the lace edging of the All Shawl, which at this point is friggin’ HUGE (and I’m making it fairly short, at least for a shawl) and I had to rip out almost ALL of the lace that I’d done so far.

Ugh!  😦

To give it some context, here’s the most recent uploaded photo:

All Shawl I

All Shawl I

I’ve done a lot more than it shows in this photo (and have taken more recent ones, just didn’t upload them yet).  There’s 15 rows of burgundy, 3 rows of the Beach Belle, 15 more rows of burgundy, 3 more rows of the Beach Belle, and 8 rows of burgundy to get to the lace edging.  It’s nearly finished, and might have been finished tonight if I hadn’t had to send it to the Frog Pond.

Oooon a happier note…

Birthday shout-outs go to my mother and my nephew Luke, who both had birthdays today (okay, technically yesterday but I’m still up, so to me it’s today).  It’s kind of freaky the way my husband’s side of the family have the EXACT SAME BIRTHDAYS as some of the people on MY side of the family.  One set of birthday-sharers even have the same FIRST NAME!

Freaky, I tell you.  F-R-E-A-K-Y.

We interrupt this blog for a special announcement….

Yesterday was my sister J’s 28th birthday!!!

J, I put this here ‘cuz I knew you’d see it.  I apologize for not sending you a message yesterday – the other Birthday Jackie had me all tied up pretty much all day (and night), so I hardly got 5 minutes to myself (you know, between that and normal everyday family/kids/house stuff).  But I didn’t forget about you!  I hope J and the kids spoiled you rotten.  Loves ya!!! 😀
