My favorite hooks are my E and larger Brittany hooks (pictured below) they are all wooden with beautifully turned handles. Canvas Works just got in a brand in that are plain, beautiful "Forest Wood" from Vietnam and I want to try some of those....Susan Bates are my favorite metal hooks.

Good for you hope it goes fast once you get going good on it. I try to avoid squares because I hate sewing them together and I hate weaving in ends too but I can manage to make myself do that. I tried to get several people to do the work for me for pay and can't find a soul willing to do it LOL. Can't blame them though since I hate it so much myself.

How do you all weave your ends in? Some times when I weave mine they want to come back out.

I use a tapestry needle and go a few stitches one way then go back the other way. Be sure to stretch the piece gently to keep the weaving from being too tight before you go back in the opposite direction and again before you clip the excess off.

I don't know if I will ever get this Afghan finished.....I decided I needed to do a row of single crochet up both sides of each strip of squares before I put the strips together.....it takes time....I am now on strip three.....then if don't think of something else I will be able to finally get it all together....I hope. Confused

We have all been working on Dish cloths and Pot holders. While ago my mom called looking for some netting to make dish scrubbers. Her's are a gathered and tied version...I will show you a picture when she get them done. But I also have a pattern for crocheting round pot scrubbers out of netting, and one crocheted out of cotton with a scrubber included. I will try and find the patterns. Wouldn't sets of these items make neat gift baskets? Oh, I have a crochet pattern for the baskets also Whistling

I tried out my kitchen twine as a dishcloth and I have to admit that I like sponges better. But the twine cloth is great as a washcloth in the shower - just the right amount of "scrubbiness" to feel good on your skin.

I want to try the dishcloth out of twine... I'm a sponge user too, and I agree, I think they make great scrubby wash cloths! :)

I watch American Idol... I'm hooked, I can't help it. Tonight when I was watching I noticed something that I've been noticing a lot more lately... kids are wearing Crocheted (how DO you add an ed to crochet?) hats.... and a couple of weeks ago, hubby was watching a Nascar show, and the driver of the red bull car was wearing a CROCHET red bull cap... could it be Crochet is in style?

I watched American Idol also and I noticed for the first time that one of the girls was wearing a pair of crocheted earrings. I thought how great to see that. If any watch Entertainment tonight you will see a lot of crocheted shawls and things that the women are wearing too.

I think so. Or knitted hats.

I saw a kid wearing a floppy hat that had a lot of color changes that was big enough to cover up those dredlocks (sp) that everyone was wearing.

I try to be open minded, I really do (and I am most of the time). Some of the kids who work for Bill have Dreds, and they are really nice intelligent kids, but I still just keep expecting something to come crawling out.... I love those hats! At least with the hats I don't have to look at the hair Blinking
