I think one of the most annoying crochet tool yet! I have tried everything under the sun and have still not found one that I love.
My "favorite" are safety pins, probably because I hibernate projects a lot and they keep my spot. I have tried before to get some custom ones made. (I cannot tell you how many times I have stuck myself with those darn pins) It never works out though.
I have used the circular plastic ones, paper clips, you name it I have probably tried it.
What do you use?

I got my Cotton Cording a few weeks ago and was super excited! It came on a huge spool and was actually pretty intimidating. Here is what it looks like:I got a 5 pound spool which is 288 yards of 5/32 cotton cord. I got it here.
I used a Lion Brand Crochet Hook Size S.
I used this pattern for the doily rug.
Here it is started!
It took me about 6-7 hours non stop!It could not have turned out better. In the end I used about 210 yards of the cord and decided to leave it the natural cotton color.
Here is another one I did that is much smaller, but uses the same idea. This one I dyed Turquoise.
So many pictures! They are both available in my etsy shop! I love them, but I have to make a living!

I am not even close to being ready (of course) but ready or not May 1st I will be there selling my items!
I am actually pretty excited about this fair too, for many reasons.
- It is my second fair, so I should be a little more prepared
- I have some great new items I will be showing off, including jewelry.
- I have some new presentation items that will help me.
- It is much longer than my last one, which means I should sell more!
- I have some items to giveaway throughout the day!
