If you have a pic of you wearing TeaBeans, please send so I can post it in my blog!
Off to work on another gifty! Hopefully will be done today so I can post some pics.

I really want to make another crochet necklace when I get a chance. Here are some cooler looking ones: Source: unknown

I can't wait til it is actually cold enough to wear this out on the town! I used a K hook (my favorite and first hook!) and added fpdc and bpdc in rounds to 81. Once I hit a desired length, I tapered back to 63 alternating fpdc and bpdc for a ripped edge. Oh oh oh I love it!!! Currently working on another slouchie beanie for an awesome friend with some cable stitch. I can't get enough of cabling and frontposts!

This weekend I celebrated three years of dating Iron Martin with ATV four-wheeling and beer tasting in the Poconos! Above is a pic of me giving the thumbs up on my four-wheeler and below are a couple close-ups of me grippin the handlebars.

Um... Just kidding. Is this fashionable? Because if it is, I will soon be a multimillionaire, selling my styles to all the celebs. Read a review of her stylinly unstylish crochet dress here.
For reals, yo, what is happening??? I have never seen a more egregious frock of crochet in my life. I am here, working TeaBeans, rocking crochet, trying to make it fashionable, trying to break free from gramma blankets and baby hats, and here Cate Blanchett goes, ruining all my hard work.
Open message to Ms.
Blanket Blancett, next time you want to hit the town in some crochet duds that are actually cute, hit me up.

I guess you could say I do not enjoy crocheting for the sake of crocheting. I don't feel relaxed or anything. In fact, I am a very impatient person, and often I feel quite anxious (knots & losing count and all that).
I wonder if anyone out there reading this loves crochet??? I would love to know if you do and why!

As you may or may not know, there is a lot of underground crocheted catness happening. While I am not really into crocheting household knick-knacks like the kitties pictured below, I definitely could see myeslf making this hat, a la the owl hat of last winter. Adorable, no? Hmm... maybe not.... seeing as I am not a cute 15 year old Japanese girl or a baby. Source.

This crocheted Zoidberg was inspired by a crocheted Zoidberg here on Craftster.org.
I mean... can I meet you on the corner of Zoidberg & Crochet Street?! It's the nexus of things Katiebeans loves.

Haha, indeed. Crafting takes forevs!
Reminder: I do not knit. I crochet. This comic is about knitting, hence the two needles. When you crochet, you use one hook. This has been a public service announcement for the Coalition to Punch You in the Face for Not Knowing the Difference.
More comics here.

I am really working to perfect this hoodie. It is giving me some troubles (heh, and some trebles), but I am holding out hope that it will be cool and wearable.

Hopefully I can get this cardigan looking good, and maybe get some mojo back. Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the pic of how I have spent the majority of my time over the past four months!
