25 Reasons to LOVE crochet.

1. It taught me patience

2. You can crochet ANYTHING

3. Because I can take it with me anywhere.

4. Crochetville, enough said...

5. I get to correct people who swear they used to knit, and tell them that I am crocheting.

6. I love color and crochet knows no boundaries when it comes to color

7. It's something I'm good that, that I truly enjoy. I mean how many people have a hobby that can make gifts, kill boredom, keep people warm, make dish cloths, bags, jewelry, hats, and sometimes even be functional??

8. It gives me something to talk about and is a great ice breaker from the typical 21 year old conversations it makes me stand out.

9. I can make the same blanket in different colors and switch up a square here and there or a stitch every other row and nobody could ever tell it's from the same pattern.

10. Because otherwise I'd have a lot of explaining to do about all that yarn in my closet!

11. It makes me feel good when people say "I wish I could do that"

12. The blanket I'm working on can keep me warm while I making it.

13. I can usually make a quick gift from my stash and not spend a dime

14. Because of crochet nights with Erin and drinks. Two tipsy hookers :-D

15. amigurumi cuteness

16. the feeling of really soft yarn through your fingers begging to be twisted into something beautiful and forever

17. the endless decor

18. because fridgies are cute

19. because I met so many wonderful people that would have otherwise not been in my life if I didn't crochet

20. it's stress relief

21. because of national crochet month

22. because my boyfriend actually wants me to make him something or he's all the time saying you should totally crochet that.

23. because of friendship ghan squares

24. because even my dog likes crochet

25. it gives me something to be passionate about!
So I'm still working on my 3sub... I don't think I'll ever finish an afghan. lol. I had my stitch sampler, my 3sub, Scott's blanket, *sigh*. Oh well. I am dedicating my weekend to crochet. Plus I get so distracted so easily it's crazy. I want to try Jacobs ladder now. & I should probably start edging my friendship ghan squares so I don't have to do it all at once. I'm addicted to searching for patterns and not working on what I already have started. Although a few days ago I came across a blog that was selling yes SELLING a pattern for a granny square... that kinda irked me bit I'll admit. I can understand selling a pattern that is of your own creation but a basic granny square that's a bit of a rip off don't ya think?? I mean it's like the base of all things crochet. I remember when I first started learning, it was like the thing to know how to do. I could make one in my sleep it hardly seems fair to charge someone for that. I think I even blogged about it I was so excited to make it. I neglect my blog too. I need to start blogging more. I do like it, I just forget. Well pizza should be here like any second.. they are late.

Moving Forward

I know I don't blog often enough, but I'm back I guess for today at least. I've been working on my 3SUB. I've been absent from the ville' a lot as well. I've been through quite a few ordeals the past couple months. I had to get rid of Bunz pretty much right after I got him, as my apartments would not allow him to stay, although they allow cats and dogs. (don't ask I don't understand it myself) Then my old Dog Bruce had to go as he destroyed everything while we we're at work, and if crated he chewed on the Bars untill his teeth bleed. :( So he had to go. Then just last week my cats had to go which was the hardest for me to deal with as I've had them for some time and was very attached. But with having work issues and them peeing on everything no matter what I did.. it was really hard for me. So I've been a bit depressed lately needless to say. I never thought I would have any reason to ever get rid of my animals. I've always been such a huge animal lover. I feel as if I've lost part of my family. I do have a Pomeranian though. She has helped me through a lot of this mess. & thankfully hasn't destroyed anything and now claims the house as all hers. Seeing as she's the only Pet I have. Her name is Foxie. & if I didn't have her I'm not so sure how I would have reacted to getting of the cats. Plus I've had some family issues lately with my parents and my mother refuseing to speak to me for months. It's been a rough year and I'm looking forward to moveing forward in 2011 the best I can. Enough of the bad things. Although there are plenty it's not what I should be thinking about to feel better. That's where crocheting comes in. I started this towards the end of the year. & put it on hold through the holidays. I pulled it out a couple days ago and I love working on it. All the bright colors are a mood lifter. & seeing as I'm sick it's keeping me warm as well. :)

Bunz is back!!

So even though we really don't have the room for him, we deided to get Bunz back. We missed him like terrible and he's a great bunny. It was difficult for us to get rid of him in the first place, so we gave him to a friend after turning down too many people from craigslists being way to picky when it came to who we went to. SO glad we did that, then said friend needed to get rid of him do to apartment management issues and we tried via craigslist once again with no responses. then got to talking about him and Scott was all like well you know... we could probably find room for him. That was enough for me, went out and got a big bag of food his favorite hay, some strawberries (he likes those) and now he's home again and I feel crazy because I have a dog, three cats, and Bunz lol NO MORE!!!! But I feel like our little family is complete again. I've always been a huge animal lover, and always had something. Even as a kid I was allowed two. (non dog or cat animals) I usually had a hamster and something else. But glad that things worked out the way they did Bunz narrowly escaped rehoming to a stranger twice. I think it's meant to be.

Well, I'm off the make salads for dinner and work on my stitch sampler A.K.A. Lace and bobbles

I need to VENT

Not normally my thing but I'm losing it! lol I've been very sick lately. First I was out with stomach pains and a fever with no explanation as to why. That lasted for about a week, Then I couldn't keep anything down period, and that lasted about a week. Then this past Friday I started having an asthma flare up. Which continued through the weekend. Then at work on Monday it was starting to get worse, Tuesday I couldn't handle it and had a full blown attack and my lips turned blue. Thankfully somebody I work with has asthma as well and let me use their inhaler, as I don't have one because I don't have insurance even though I work a full time job. And my boss STILL wouldn't let me go home even though my lips were BLUE!! Because I seemed to be feeling better.... right because he totally knows what it's like to lose oxygen. So after work on Tuesday I went to the emergency room, due to difficulty breathing. Waited forever.... and ever. Then I ended up have the worst attack yet and stopped breathing to where I finally was seen and had a tube down my throat. Then I waited in a room for an hour with horrible coughing and gasping for air, finally one of the nurses felt sorry for me and started breathing treatments with the vapor mist thingy (albuterol). I went through 6 before my airways were stable enough to stop. And since I have a sensitivity to albuterol which usually isn't a problem with just an inhaler but it was 6 breathing treatment thingys, so I had to have an i.v. to slow my heart rate which was going out of control. Then finally I was seen by the student doctor who was actually very nice and I was very happy with unlike the stupid catty nurses. Finally I was told I had an asthma attack.... (really I had no idea) Then I was seen by the actual doctor who talked to me for all of two minutes to explain that he was going to put me on steroids for my lungs and an inhaler, and I should be released soon. Almost TWO hours later (which I was starting to wheeze again) the nurse came in to have me sign the release form, and give me the prescriptions. So I get home at about 2:30 a.m. and I still couldn't breathe all that well. Had to get up at 5:30 in the morning to go to work today, and since I couldn't drop off the prescriptions I had no inhaler so I had a difficult day today as well, and my boss just didn't get it at all. Put me at a sit down job that was over by the docks where the semis unload and the doors are usually always open this time of year and the exhaust and fumes from the semis was making it a lot worse I would rather stand and do my normal job at a relaxed pace then deal with that. But he wouldn't have it. So I left at 1:oo instead of the usual 3:00 which is considered a tardy you can leave two hours early or be two hours late and take a tardy and you get 12 a year and I have 2 from last winder due to snow delays so I said screw it and left so I could get my prescriptions sooner. Whew. I think that's everything, sorry for the vent. lol Kudos if you actually read it!
