Some results…and FROGGIN’

Hey there minions and ring leaders!

Today I was checking out our “Charts/No Charts” thread on Ravelry, and so far we have 151 readers (so um…if you haven’t checked in wanna do it), and so far here are the results:

77 are for
24 are in the against/don’t care camp.
1 person feels strongly enough to disagree (which wasn’t really an option, but we get your point. You don’t like charts 🙂 )

Now down to doughnuts…I have to FROG…

I don’t mean a little frogging, but a lot of frogging. I have to take a part my “stupid” Fearless Leader Vest. The front panels aren’t going with the back at all, the shaping is not working…and I’m just annoyed. I won’t have it done for Portland, but I have a cute little bolero number that I finally finished to make up for it.

SIGH….The front panels will end up in a different sweater entirely. The back will be a SUPER FEARLESS LEADER CAPE! Cause dang it, it’s too cool to just leave unfinished. But, I only have about two weeks until Sara and I hit the rails south to Portland. I may take it to work on, though it’s pretty heavy.

I think I’ll just leave it home. I mean when you have to carry your own luggage you start thinking about things like that.

Back to the bolero…ooooh it’s cute 🙂 I put brass bells on the bottom of the vest, so if you hear jingling in Portland it’s me 🙂

International Crochet Day: September 12

ATTENTION ALL CROCHET ENTHUSIASTS!! Are you READY!?

Beloved master hook enabler and hooksmith Jimbo (of jimbosfrontporch.blogspot.com fame) decreed Sept. 12th of each year to be International Crochet Day!

How are you going to honor this illustrious day of crocheting goodness?

Here are some ideas Jimbo has offered on the CLF Message Board:

  • Crochet in public
  • Teach someone to crochet
  • promote Internatinal Crochet day in your blog

Other members have said they shall parade the streets of where they live festooned in crocheted lovliness!

What is Fearless Leader doing for International Crochet Day?

HAH! I am in Portland from the Knit and Crochet Show (I know it should be Crochet and Knit show but you know….one day we shall over come such sad titles of events)…

Come by booth 514 at the Oregon Convention Center to liberate your hooks!! We’ll crochet loud and proud (or quietly with elegant ease…either way works)…

Thank you to our dearest Jimbo, hook maker extraordinare!! In fact he is one Hookalicious Dude…and I now honor him with the Hookalicious Award for outstanding, bodacious, awesome hook enabling!! Congrats Jimbo!!
