Why There Ain’t No Hooking!

I am hooking you guys…Um, I will, I swear! I know you guys are like, “Oh, she calls herself theknitterlyhooker, but she ain’t doing squat!.” Listen, I know, but I need to find a project I’m inspired by or something. I just finished looking through a dozen crochet magazines and nothing…My magazines I know are dated, the last one I have before the first Vogue Knitting Crochet is Crochet Today 2011.  Prior to the Crochet Today 2011 the oldest one I have is Crochet! January 2007.  I had only a couple possibilities. And I have minimal crochet books (only baby stuff and I don’t feel like making that) Do you see my plight?  I know crochet has changed a lot, but truth be told, I haven’t kept up. So, regular hookers, please offer up some assistance.  I would hate for anyone to feel neglected. I’d like to offer up the hook once in a while.

Please and Thanks!

The Notebook

Ideas are abundant and all around us. Swirling about in the atmosphere above our heads, waiting to be plucked down. We all hope to get a break and catch one. For this reason, I have dedicated a notebook to capture an idea I have plucked. I’m not sure about you, but when I get ideas, they often slip my mind by the time I get to paper and pen. I have this book within my reach at all times (stickies too!). My ideas are sporadic and short; once I get them it has to be out on paper immediately or its lost forever. My mind is a raceway, but sometimes time can be my enemy. Ideas stay with the one who is willing to take them further. Ideas are meant to be shared and expounded upon. The only problem I have now is that I haven’t yet figured out what to do when I’m driving and have an epiphany!
