it's about crochet ..... it's about writing ....

Part of me is a wife and mom, part of me is a writer and poet and part of me is still a kid in jeans tooling around in my VW Beetle listening to Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, James Taylor ... and The Beatles ...

Happy Birthday, ARPANET

It was 44 years ago today .....
UCLA said "LO" to Stanford
...... and crashed

but it was just the beginning.

++ boucle ++
A type of yarn, usually three-ply and having one thread looser than
the others, that produces a rough-textured cloth
yarn with loops producing a rough, nubby appearance on
woven or knitted fabrics

either way ..... b-o-u-c-l-e ..... spells "trouble"

I imagine this yarn would be much easier to knit than to crochet.
I used the skien I had to make a scarf using only single crochet.
As long as I had the same amount of stitches on each row,
I was happy.

 It made a nice, soft scarf 
and you really can't tell where the mis-stitches are,
I'm pretty sure there are quite a few.
