I've never been dsylexic...

but lately I seem to find the wackiest things in some of my writing. Look at this sentence in the last post "I'm awaiting ready" I think that I must have meant that "I'm already waiting". Maybe I'm not dsylexic, I just need more caffeine...or maybe less caffeine and more sleep...

Crochet-wise what's one the hooks? I'm working on two baby sweaters as part of a CAL in our CGOA Chapter. They are from the Lion Brand website, and the pattern is Short and Sweet Child's Cardigan.

Then I'm swatching some new fibers as part of a Ravelry Learn Crochet group CAL. They're doing a Learn Symbol Crochet Mystery CAL. I'm swatching the stitch pattern in Plymouth Wildflower DK, a cotton acrylic blend that is soft and has good stitch definition. Then I'm also swatching a Jarbo Garn Tropik, which is a bamboo, cotton, acrylic blend. The yarn is soft, has a nice sheen and great stitch definition. Too bad that it's the only skein in my stash. I bought the skein at A Likely Yarn in Abingdon, VA. I only wanted to play a little and find out how it worked up, etc. Now I wish that I had enough to do this Mystery CAL. I think that I have nothing in the stash with enough yardage for this project...must make trip to LYS.

I also have a whole couch full of swatches for a baby afghan in Tunisian. Lots of ideas, most look great, but not sure that I have the perfect combination yet. Back to work.
