Continuing with the randomness on Tuesday
Words we just know

It snuck up from behind...

From out of nowhere, all stealthy-like, so I hardly even knew what was happening, influenced so subtly and yet by so many -- it's Larger Than Life!  It's a little bit Lynne, a little bit Margene, it's Ann and Katy, it's even Cara!  Can you believe it?  Cara is wielding a freakin' crochet hook (and just wait... wait 'til you hear what she's using).  It's a fever, isn't it Deb?  It's The Purl Bee -- Granny Squares and Babette.

Someone's put a HEX on me!!

In the face of everything I've got going, this is what I found myself doing last night.  The exact nature and duration of the spell is still unknown -- and the gauge is certainly not good!  I'm not sure what that means.  I don't know what I'll have to do to break it, but for now...

Y'all better watch your backs.

Indeed it is - I found myself going through my old Interweave Crochet magazines yesterday to see if something might have escaped me. I bought yarn for the darling Beachcomber Tunic on page 18 of same Spring 2007 IC magazine. There's something about 1 hook, 1 stitch simplicity!

margene

If 'they' only knwe how viral this hookin' is;-)

Carol

Now you're talkin' about something I have some real experience with! I can not believe who's picking up the hooks out there!

Cara

You guys are KILLING me! I feel like a zombie who drank the kool-aid or something. I'm gonna start calling you Capt Hook. Or Dr. Hook?

Romi

Eeek! It's spreading! ;)

anne

Oh, man. After reading Cara's latest, I zoomed over to Hobby Lobby to pick up the spring issue of Interweave Crochet. When they didn't have it, I got all pissy.

I blame it on all y'all.

lynne

Oh, great. Next thing you know, you'll be crocheting granny slippers with pompoms on the toes.

Hee hee, I was tickled to see this... you may have noticed I have been using my handspuns (which are still worsted weight and only a few ounces of thises and thats) to make the squares for this bag. It won't replace my primary passion, but I used to do huge amounts of crochet, back in the day, and it has been a fun way to put these early yarns to good purpose.

How adorable...and it is not a square! :)

Karen

It's been fun watching the hook spread like a wild fire through the blogs. I will resist! Well this week anyway.

Angie

You've caught the Granny-pox! I am fighting it, fighting it, but I'm going to interweave to buy that Spring '06 back issue just in case...

anne

I've been sucked in, too! It was Babette that got me - well, actually the ripple afghans I've been seeing everywhere, but then I decided Babette would be much better and it's so easy!! I have a sinking feeling that the larger than life bag might be next.
