I sometimes mention Teresa's Art of Crocheting at YouTube. She posted yesterday the index of her videos. You can find it here.
Sandy over at the Bridge and Beyond had a request for an "ugly hat". My daughter and I were just talking about these "ugly" parties people have. I truthfully don't see the point. I'd be forever worried my favorite item would show up. LOL Regardless, she made the hat. I'm not sure if I would go all the way to ugly, but it certainly is interesting looking. You can see it here.
I also thought the post before that was interesting. Sandy took some small grannies and turned them to make diamonds and joined for a scarf. She is always innovative with her use of donated items. Hmmm I might have to try that myself.
Every time I get a Herrschner catalog in I stop at the Penguin Afghan. I haven't bought it because ... all that black. I have a hard time with black. But isn't it cute? You also get the book 2009 Juvenile Afghans with some other patterns. They have one kit available from each book 2008, 2009, 2010 in the catalog I'm looking at.
One last note, there is an excellent video on how to make a vertical ripple (wave, chevron or whatever you want to call it) scarf for Special Olympics. You can use it for other things as well, of course. Note that Special Olympics scarves must be 6" wide by 54-60" long.
There are 3 stitches between hill and valley. Hills are made by working 3 dcs in one stitch, and valleys are made by a decreasing over 2 stitches. The beginning chain is 19.
That's all for now. Hope you're having a great crocheting day!
