  1. i had tea with a friend this week and we were talking about ‘the rosie project’ and how much we enjoyed it. i didn’t know there was a new book! how is it?

    funny too i just started crocheting again. are you loving it? i could never love knitting and i have tried so hard to.

    • The Rosie Effect is taking me longer to get into than The Rosie Project, but I am enjoying it now.
      My crochet skills are still pretty terrible, but I am enjoying it. I need my friend’s Mum with me so I can ask which loop to use next when I get stuck!! Sometimes I just don’t know which loop to stick the darn hook in…..

  2. my friend just messaged me… hey did i you know about the new rosie book! lol
    i think i will put that in the cue for my little book club. i’m thinking about a virtual club in conjunction with the live club…. although i’d much rather visit in person over your coconut & chip bread… would you be interested in the virtual club?

    i challenged myself to reading and trying out a new hooking pattern yesterday. i don’t really have the proper yarn or needle size but i thought just practice! well i tell you i was frustrated so i’d curse it but come back. i was not letting some string kick my ass.
    have you ever visited garnet studio?
    http://www.garnstudio.com/search.php?lang=us&c=12
    this is where i’m relearning my skills again. they have vids on each pattern.

    longest comment ever!

    • Oh yes, I would love to join an online bookclub. Great idea. I will go and check out Garnet studio too.
