Hook and Needle Club

I received my Hook and Needle Club kit last week. I don't have the time right now to work on it, but it is one that I am anxious to try.

I haven't opened the package because it would just be too tempting!

First, I must get these troop hats done. I may work this kit before I hit the donated yarn though. :-) So much yarn temptation!

If you are using the hat patterns I posted, please do check the posts before commencing as I update the actual post if I find errors or make changes.

As I'm going through the patterns to put on the new Crochet Cabana site, I've found some minor errors and have changed a few things. Of course, you know that means I probably made new errors! LOL

The good news is that many of the patterns I had on the site years ago will be back. These are not fancy patterns - I lean towards the simple, for beginners in most cases, though I do challenge the beginner to  use a few special stitches like front post and cross-stitch and V-stitch. These are not difficult stitches once you get to know them. You will find simple hats, scarves, afghans, shawls, dishcloths and a few miscellaneous items like simple baby blocks, beanbag, bookmarkers, placemats etc.

I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I am hopeful it won't be too long before we can have the site up and running though everything might not be in place.

I spent a good part of this weekend putting photos in photo albums on Picasa/Google+. However, although it was easy to add the photos, I have found photos appearing in the wrong albums and when I move or delete them they don't seem to leave the incorrect spot and there are multiple copies of things in some folders. I will take a break and see if when I come back to it everything works better. :-) Then I'll decide if that is what I want to do with the photo section.

Happy crocheting!
