I haven't posted anything on AF either....so today i'm going to concentrate on new stuff.
I also want to point you in this direction. It always amazes me when people can do things with a crochet hook or a set of knitting needles. I can go back and forth in a stright line but thats as far as that goes. This lady on AF makes all kinds of things, my favorite is this checker board. So try to go look through her shop, Grammies Krafty Kabana, http://www.artfire.com/modules.php?name=Shop&seller_id=41352&op=new&body=1
Her stuff is really reasonably priced, and winter is coming...
You may even be able to find your kids school colors. That always help keep their hats on their heads!!!
