Entry for January 10, 2007

Here's a crochet site that has some gorgeous afghan patterns and best of all, they're FREE! They're vintage patterns so there is a hominess about them. I love old things and these just fit the bill.
The project I'm working on now is an afghan for my brother. I probably have another few dedicated nights before it's finished. I am using voodoo yarn I got at the Dollar Tree store. I thought it was a bargain at $1 per skein but it is taking a lot of skeins--1 for ever row and a half! I'm using 2 strands--one is the voodoo yarn and the other is a 4ply worsted weight. When it is done, I'll post a picture of it. Don't hold your breath though 'case I'm slow! LOL!!! Have a wonderful day.

On this day in history 1984-- US establishes full diplomatic relations with Vatican after 117 years. The US and the Vatican have had a rocky relationship. There has been much disagreement between the 2 on their various policies--presently the most notable is the US's reaction and actions concerning terrorism. To read about US and Vatican relations, go here.
