Well, howdy!

My name is Deb. I post mainly on my homemaking blog, Try-Hard Homemaker, but I am just about tickled purple to have been invited (invited myself ;) ) to participate here! I am a knitter from way back, converted to a quilter, and now, well dang it, I'm addicted to crochet. Okay, I admit it, I am a hardcore craft addict. :D

This is my first crochet effort. I have dabbled a little, here and there, but this will be the first time I have actually *crocheted something*. It is going swimmingly, but I attribute that mainly to a high level of general craft literacy.

Am I the only person here who is using yarn purchased from their local grocery store? :D Honestly, I have four small children; I'd probably have to sell one of them to be able to buy the yarns that some of you are using! My yarn is a *lovely*, cheap, acrylic 8-ply...I cut the grocery budget short to be able to buy it (just kidding...). But, it works.

Here is my afghan-in-progress. :D

Deb, it's gorgeous, I love your colors! I *wish* my grocery store carried yarn, of course, I'd be in real trouble then! ;-) Welcome to the lovely art of crochet!

Weeeeelllll, since I get groceries at a Super Wal-Mart, I can buy yarn then, too! You're doing quite well to be new to crochet!

No, you're not the only one. Every one of my yarns came from Wal-Mart, Michael's or Jo-Anns and are all acrylic. I don't mind them, easy to wash and have to kill anyone to afford them. And I don't even have kids. Looks good.
