It's here..My Book is HERE!

I had been waiting for my Crochet Me to arrive wondering what I would choose to crochet for the CAL. Well after careful scrutiny of each pattern, I decided to make the Victorian Shrug & Wrap (from the cover) for my Muse. I haven't purchased the yarn as of yet, but I know it will be red. We both love red. I hope to have it finished by Christmas. It will be perfect for her. She reminds of a gazelle; so graceful. The shrug and wrap will look fabulous on her. Keep you posted!

Getting Started

I posted about this at length at my blog, but I'm excited to get started with the Crochet Along! I received my book last Monday and after finishing my most recent WIP, am finally ready to start. I'll be making the Mini Wrap Skirt. I used my phone to take a picture of my supplies, but I'll be using my digital camera to document the process.

Here's the stuff:
Supplies for Mini Wrap Skirt

The yarn is Bernat SuperValue in True Grey (MC) and Black (CC).

I got my book, I got my book!!!!!!

My dear step-daughter informed me that Coles called about a book on crochet or something or other. I was out lastnight to the LYS knitting group, where I, gleefully, pull out my crochet in addition to my knitting. I have friend there who reads my blog faithfully, not sure why, however I digress.

I want to crochet the mini dress. I have some sumptuous yarn that I bought. It wants to be made into a dress, although I have tried 2 other patterns with it.
The yarn just won't work with it, however I can see it here. Yeah! The yarn I am using is Phildar's Canasta in colorway Pistache -#0009. I think it will look awesome.
