In my search for interesting things to write about, I ran across this site: http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history
I never was a history buff but I find this site intriguing. Today is November 23, 2011. I have been out for less than two months. I am still looking for work and crocheting but have spent a lot of time online as of late, talking to a wonderful man from Wales. He seems to be my soul mate, but I will tell you more about him as I learn more from him.
On the crochet front, my baby blanket, quilt-like though it may be, is taking forever to finish. I have only one triangle left to finish and put together. Then it will just need to be bordered. I am using a variation of Pricilla Hewetts pattern linked here:
http://priscillascrochet.net/freepatterns.html you will have to scroll down to the Baby section and look for Homespun Baby Afghan.
It is a wonderfully easy pattern and works up quickly when using Homespun, which I am not. I will add a picture when it is finished. This is the last one I finished, done with the Diagonal Box Stitch. A wonderful tutorial can be seen here:
