One for helping yourself, the other for helping others. " Audrey Hepburn

Updated Crochet MEME

A Crochet Meme
Here is my version of My Crochet Meme.
I plan on adding and changing this "Meme" monthly,yearly, whenever.

Copy it and take it to your blog and link back to me!
Have fun with this Meme!!!!

1. What is your favorite pattern/project? Purses is my "fav" at the moment but I am now getting into socks. I love to design purses and try different colors. 2008: I am still working on bags and now also on shawls, I gave up for awhile on socks I am trying my hand with some bracelets and necklaces, and I think I want to tackle a sweater.
2. What project are you working on now? too many...I always have at least 5 going on at one time, right now its, a purse from Berroco, an ankle socks with Cascade[in the sock Kal], a heart book mark, aponcho with Caron simple Soft, and starting another Towel topper from the crochet a Day calendar patterns. Wow...still too many, a grocery bag, trying one in plastic, a tote bag, coasters, a bookmark, newest venture a necklace and some hair clips.
3. Who inspired you to start to crochet? My Mom...she was a very cafty person and I loved watching her so she taught me when I was about 9 yrs old. I am also inspired by my local group gals, there is so much talent in our group and I learn from all of them, especially about loving to stitch.
4. Are you in a local group? Oh of course I have my own group at Yahoo Groups, called Stitch n' Chicks. oh yes there are 12 of us now and I consider each of them a dear friend. I love to meet to learn from them and just to laugh. We just had our 1st annual "Yarn Summer" party, which was so much fun.
5. What is your favorite yarn? hmmm ..I love it all, but I love Caron Simple Soft Shadows.I love Egyption cotton, and also Daria yarn.
6. What type of hooks do you use? crystal clear and I just got some beautiful ones from an exchange partner that are ingraved with "Love" "hope" and Peace" oh yeah "Joy" too! I like them all but tend to lean towards the wooden ones mainly for comfort and the ease.
7. How big is your stash? oh my tons...too much to count... oh my is has grown I now have more and more and still not enough room to store it all, I need to finish some projects.. :(
8. Where do you keep your stash? I try to keep it upstairs in my sewing area but it is in my guest room and it has taken over there and in my office and livingromm, it would be better to ask "Where is it not??" It has expanded to the diningroom table and my computer room..oh my?
9. What is your favorite color? Purple, Pink and Burgundy I like the ocean blues too
10. Rate your crochet addiction from 1-10. wellll I would say 12!!! as I am a Crochetoholic!!!! :) Definitely a 12...I am still crocheting away...
11. Which would you rather be doing, crocheting, knitting, or watching TV? That is an easy one I do all of them...lol....in the house and out on my patio.
12. Where is your favorite spot to crochet or knit? I have to say on the patio out by my pond. I love to listen to the waterfalls and have the TV on Lifetime , of course, too...it is peaceful back there and the birds are singing and the trees sway in the wind...ahh and then I stitch on.....

Consider yourself tagged! SO copy and take it over to your blog NOW!
