Margaret Hubert has a new book coming out!
Margaret Hubert Check it out! It was amazing watching her work on scarf, that she wanted finish by the end of the meeting. Oh No! She ran out of yarn! Wait, Shhh! she snatched up a small amount of yarn left over from someone else’s scarf! DARN it's not enough! OK she thought we'll make it a Hat! So she added a few mores to the scarf, working her way up she closed the scarf (looks like a tube!) I'm thinking, Now What! Suddenly, she started working the crown in the round! She finished it and with a twisted cord no less! Amazing - Wish I had my camera to get pics of this one! That's what I Call Creativity On the Run!

Great News From The Crochet Dude!
"October kicks off breast cancer awareness month. So I designed a
crocheted purse that is available for FREE on my site. I call it
"Pink Ribbin" (you know, like pink ribbon is the breast cancer
awareness symbol). Also you can leave a comment to enter to win a
collection of breast cancer awareness appliques which you can see on
my site also. http://blog.thecrochetdude.com/"
