please forgive the small picture, as i'm at my mom's and her computer doesn't have the same programs i like to use for my pictures. aside from that, hey, that looks like the beginnings of a crochet rug! my 10mm hook looks larger than my 9" rug. i bought several 5/8 yd pieces of this handdyed batik cotton from indonesia. i had stopped in at mary jo's in gastonia on my way here. i don't know how far i will get with this, as i'd like to make a decent sized rug, but i don't want to spend too much money on this project, and crochet eats up the strips rather quickly.
i also made some quicky stitch markers yesterday. it doesn't get any more basic that this, with purchased toggles and charms, connected with a jumpring. i also made some earrings, but these were a bit more complex.
i'm also making great progress with my chikcami ... it's almost finished! and sock #2 of the pinky stripes is nearing the toe :)
