Like most handmade crafty things, I quit crocheting just about the moment I figured out that creating one long scarf after another was getting me nowhere close to afghans and baby blankets.  Sure I could have expanded upon my skills and imposed upon my lovely teacher-friends to assist me.. but that was going to take longer than a couple of hours for goodness sake.  Who has time for that?

Anyways- isn’t knitting the “cool one”?  I thought – if knitting is Rose then crocheting is Dorothy and I want to be Blanche!

Well it turns out there’s room for more than one kinda hook in the Vera Bradley quilted tote and by golly I will use it to make you a scarf you can wrap around from head-to-toe. Twice.

As for the other stuff- you can just buy it from the more patient and practiced hookers.   What’s that? Not a good nickname?  Ok… i mean from those who are good with needles…….crap…. the awesome talented people.  That’s what i’ll be doing anyway.
