|Better than a magazine, the Crochet 2015 desktop calendar|
From their web site:
Andrews McMeel Publishing is the nation's top calendar publisher, annually producing calendars based on many top-selling properties such as Dilbert, Thomas Kinkade, and Mary Engelbreit, among other characters and titles, and selling more than 15 million calendars each year.
Anyway, I just received a copy of the Crochet 2015 Calendar and I've pulled out numerous pages of my new favorites. (Yes. Now the calendar is a mess with sticky notes, disorganized pages; who says I have to keep them in order?)
If you are a yarn junkie like me and are always looking for crochet inspiration, this calendar is for you. You can purchase it online in a variety of places, including the official Andrews McMeel calendar site.
Let's see some of the projects I pulled out to work on right away. (I received permission from AMM to use these images.)
First, I want to go beyond square potholders. I've made a few dozen square ones and it's time to work on some circles!

And I've been working on some wristers, but I've gotten the sizes wrong. Maybe I should be following a pattern . . . ?
