I don't yet have my copy of Interweave Crochet but I broke down and ordered it online. Paying the almost $5 for shipping hurt, but that's less than I would have had to spend on gas to go to the next town to buy it so I guess it all works out. I ordered it on Monday, so it should be here sometime next week, I think.
In the meantime, I've been crocheting again. I worked on a crocheted cupcake pincushion. I didn't use a pattern just winged it. It's taken me longer to complete it than the Chic On The Halfshell did. How lame is that? I thought it would be a no brainer kind of project. Damn it. I think I like it, but I haven't made up my mind yet. It isn't quite what I had envisioned, but it's still cute. It's another gift for my friend Morgan in Missouri. [waves to Morgan]. I'm also thinking about making my version of the Corn Cob seen here. I don't have enough yellow yarn, though. There's still time so it might happen. By the way, I love the ideas in the book I linked to up there...goofy stuff, but it's cute and I love a good laugh!
I would take a picture of my beautiful yarn and silly cupcake, but my motherboard is fried and we haven't yet gotten everything back to normal. on the up side I got my Mother's Day gift early this year...a new computer [sans the monitor...nothing wrong with it, thank goodness] Yay for technology!
