Don't make me cut a stitch!
Each time I plan a day to enjoy kicking back to crochet, I get sidetracked into doing something else. This has got to come to an end. On Thanksgiving, I plan on spending the day eating a store-bought roasted chicken and pumpkin pie. Throwing back a couple liters of Canada Dry Ginger Ale. And crocheting.
There are a million things I want to crochet (in contrast to the one favorite thing I like to knit a million times — a scarf). I am thinking by this time next year, we'll be decorating a crocheted Christmas tree with crocheted ornaments. You think I'm joking? Every time I find myself at Wal-Mart (I block out the fact that I'm going until I'm actually inside), I've been picking up a couple of skeins of Red Heart Yarn at $2.33 a pop. Yep, I'm a cheap hooker. Last week I grabbed a few Christmas colors. Christmas and crochet seem like they're just meant to go together, like Christmas and commercialization.
My big ol' secular heart just bursts into holiday carols as I think about making a hypertension penguin and rabid raccoon Christmas tree ornament! Now I just need to find a pattern to make my very own Griswold Christmas tree squirrel! The cutest, kitschiest crochet holiday patterns can only be found in honest-to-goodness vintage publications! You can find 'em on eBay (stay away from anything published after 1982!) or FreeVintageCrochet.com (Go look at everything on that site! I haven't felt this high off something since my last Vicodin!).
I have completely lost track of this post because ohmygod have you gone to FreeVintageCrochet.com yet?!?! Have you seen the horsies? Or this purse? And holy smokes — the potholders???? This is more fun than receiving a prescription for Percocet in my stocking! Seriously, look around and then leave a comment here telling me what you're most excited about crocheting first!
