Super Sale and Can Knitting and Crocheting Burn Out be Far Behind?

OMG how much knitting and crocheting can one person do? Me thinks it might be time for a change in creative outlets. But I still have miles and miles of yarn and crochet thread. I guess I'll keep going until the first of the year and then decide. Here are a few things I have finished lately that are now for sale in my Artfire shop. (You DO NOT have to join Artfire to buy items there...just sayin) Oh and BTW I have a Coupon Sale going on there....Just enter DANCESWITHPITBULLS at checkout for a whopping 40% off!

A Little Facebook Challenge

My Pond friends Beth and Chrissy and I were talking about a crocheted cowl pattern that Bethie posted to my Facebook. I decided to see if could make one in an hour like the gal had said in the link.

I clicked on the Lion Brand website to get the pattern. OK looks easy enough.  But wait...a size P hook?!? I ain't got no size P hook! I dug through my other crochet hooks, the wooden ones until I found the biggest one.

  Next I dug through the bulky yarn stash. I had some of Thick n Quick but not enough to make the cowl so I grabbed the ball of teal. 

After a quick swatch I realized it wasn't bulky enough so I added a strand of Yellow Gold.

I set the Timer and away I went!

45 minutes later it was done!

I apologize for the Green Bay colors lol.
