I visited Lopez Island and all I got was this lousy picture.
Seriously, Lopez was so frigid and overcast I didn’t get any nice photos. The clouds were dark and the rain made everything damp. I just remember trying to stay warm and endlessly drying the camera.
I’m so tired from shivering today! Please excuse the rushed blog and the lack of essential details. If you’re curious you can see a slideshow of the day’s trip over at Photobucket.

I though I’d kick off the New Year with my very first blog slide-show. Click on the picture mosaic above to see a neat little slide-show of the crochet squares I made. There’s even a music number that goes along with the slide-show if you click the volume button on the left corner.
I’m a little tongue-tied today and can’t seen to get the details of these crochet squares written right. I’m just going to leave well enough alone and save it for another day.
If you have still have some blog time to kill I would suggest going to Crafty Christina’s to check out her new free St Maurus Headwarmer crochet pattern featuring the Jacob’s ladder stitch. This is on my ’08 crochet queue and looks like a serious must for stylish winter crochet wear.
Oh, and speaking of free crochet patterns, today I noticed that The Daily Crocheter has featured my Through Any Window Baby Blanket as their free pattern of the day. You can see the link listed through the 14th of January on their free pattern of the day archive.
Here’s to future free crochet patterns everywhere in 2008!
