Happy Memorial Day!

There's nothing like a 3-day weekend to play around. Between BBQs - because that's what one does on Memorial Day, break out chunks of charcoal, pour flammable liquid over it, set it on fire and burn (er, cook) raw meat over it - one can crochet!

Yesterday I finished some squares for Moe's MIL comfortghan. These will go out in the mail tomorrow. I seem to be on a Priscilla Hewitt kick... All were made with Bernat Satin in Raisin.

I also made Carousel, but seem to have misplaced the photo file. I'll add later.

Last, but not least, I completed the CFL Challenge "Make something in thread to hold something else". So I made a crochet hook holder. I purchased the pattern from
Crochet Memories. I did my best to take a pic where the glare from the steel hooks wouldn't blind you, but you might want to get out your sunglasses. This was made with Anchor #8 Perle Cotton and a size 6 hook. Took 1 ball!

Have a great day everyone! I need to get back to checking on my husband. Cooking raw meat over fire changes him somehow...
