Why is this so great, you ask? Because I can make zillions and zillions of earrings now!
Speaking (ahem. . . writing) of earrings, Hannah and I have already sold four pairs! Etsy seems to be working out well, assuming their server remains functional and my store site isn't deleted (again). Two of my fave pairs are pictured below!
In other news, part of my Herrschner's order finally arrived this week, so Melissa's bag is officially under way. It's definitely smaller than the last one, but will have a nice long strap and such a cool design that I don't think she'll mind toooo much. Just gotta find time to work on it!!!

The pattern is written (terribly exciting, I know), and is in the last stages of editing. I hope to submit it to the Crochetville "Round the Ville" newsletter by Monday. . . so look for it there, and eventually on my blog!
Thank you again for all the encouragement and support throughout the creation of this tote, and thanks for your patience while I finish the pattern!
And an announcement. . .
Check out my very own Etsy store!

I've also selected my yarn for the CAL. . . Simply Soft Brites in Berry Blue, which is actually a really lovely french blue/periwinkle color. This project is meant to be worked on a little bit each day, on my bus rides, etc., as my other afghans have become unwieldy!!!

She used the "Racing Stripes" 12" pattern from Crochet Pattern Central, and SS yarn! Robin also had impeccable timing, as I had just finished my February swap square before going to get the mail. This square (see below) will be heading out to Valerie in TN tomorrow:

Don't you just love the button?! Here's the back and front flap, with an opening for the button. Each one of the diamond repeats takes 36 yards of yarn!!!
Here it is. . . the mystery project!!! Can you guess what it is? C'mon. . . try!
