Team Flaming Hooks: FO of the Day

FO? What’s that? An FO is a Finished Object, as opposed to a UFO which is an Unfinished Object 🙂

Today’s FO in the Spotlight is by CLF Member Traciecrochets, aka Tracie Barrett! Tracie participated in the CAL hosted by noneother than CLF member and online radio Diva, Mary Beth Temple for the Beaded Thistle Shawl.

Tracie finished this piece for the WIP competition  Short Track Shawl competition. Meaning Tracie completed this in three days! What a hooker!  Works in Progress were given their own category. What a stunning entry, what a fabulous pattern, and great Design from Mary Beth.

Stay tuned to the CLF for more yummy, gorgeous, or down right inventive FO features!

Ravelympic 2010 updates…

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been a little distracted by all the exciting things happening on my television set! I was crocheting alone, and then the Mogul competition got going and I forgot to keep crocheting and lost what row I was on…Thank heaven’s my big project for the design a published pattern is a pretty easy to remember stitch repetition for the base of it!

So, far I am not the only Team Flaming Hooks member to face an injury, after the attack on my finger, fellow team mate and all star crocheter, Crochetexaminer, had the wind come out of no where and slam a door on her finger…I tell ya, it’s a conspiracy…Of what? By whom? Who knows…All jokes aside, it’s so much fun to do this, it’s exciting to crochet for the stretch of it, stretching our skills, our speed, our talents, our knowledge base, that’s the best part!

With over 50 projects listed on our Team Flaming Hooks group projects page, most of them finished, this appears it will be an active games! I will be featuring these throughout the week…For now, I’ll feature the one I made impromptu yesturday for my neice, Wonder Princess Gwen…A heart shaped pocket purse (that came with some yummy bon bons)…Just in time for Ravelympics and Valentine’s Day! WHOOT!
