Dewey's Knit-a-Long

I've joined Dewey's Knit-a-long as part of the Dewey Reading Challenge. Actually, I'll be crocheting but it involves yarn so I'm good.

I plan on using the yarn above to crochet socks. I've never crocheted socks before so this is a challenge. Already I hit a road bump. I realized I need more yarn and 2 hooks I don't have. Hubby's response, "These are going to be pricey socks."

I'd also looove to make this cardigan found in January's Crochet Today magazine. It's gorgeous. It's also for advanced hookers; another challenge. That's the yarn I'll be using in the photo.

Anyway this will be fun! Come join us. You can do other things besides knit or take up knitting and challenge yourself.


  1. I love that sweater! Looks hard though. Good luck!

  2. That's a beautiful pattern. Keep us posted (or twittered).

    I wish I could participate, but I have lymphedema pretty bad in my right arm. So I'll make it a point to cheer you on.

    However if a quilting one should ever pop up...I'm there! LOL

  3. That sweater is CROCHET? It's GORGEOUS. I'm going to have to find that magazine and make it right. now.

  4. I love that sweater! I haven't crocheted in years though and I'm not very good at it. Maybe I can find something similar for knitters.

  5. I know I drooled over that sweater. The pattern is long and complicated. I'm going to need to put my thinking cap on while doing it.

  6. Should I be concerned to learn that you're an advanced hooker? lol. Yeah, I'm 12.

    Aw, that's so sweet! I still can't believe Dewey is gone.

  7. Love the cardigan! I've always wanted to learn how to knit/crochet, but have never taken the time. Actually, I did learn to crochet, but only simple simple stuff like a hot pink scarf that I didn't end up liking when I was finished. :P Good luck with the endeavor!

  8. Wow, that's a gorgeous sweater. I wonder if my crochet skills are up to it. I'll have to go and get Crochet Today and check it out...

  9. I just joined this one too. I knit and crochet.

    I look foward to seeing your progress!

  10. Carrie- lol! No I'm just an amateur ;)

    Trish- It can be both frustrating and rewarding.

    Fern- We'll see how it goes.

    Teddy- Oh good, can't wait to see what you make.
