Julia Vaconsin, don't read this. It's another tasteless plea. Don't forget to vote for your favorite crochet technical editor! Do you like how error-free the patterns are in Interweave Crochet? In some of your favorite Interweave Press crochet titles? It just might be a pattern or book I helped to edit. You have until March 30th, which just so happens to be my birthday and you wanna give me a pressie, right? http://www.crochetliberationfront.com/2011-flamie-award-nominees/vote/
The Granny Shawlette pattern, originally published in Inside Crochet Magazine, is now available as a PDF. The pattern is available through my blog or Ravelry and 200% of the proceeds from the sale of the PDF will go to the American Red Cross for relief efforts in Japan. A stylish, yet simple, adaptation of the granny square makes this pattern quick to stitch. Worked in a fingering or sock weight yarn, this flirty shawl is a shallow, wide triangle, the perfect size for a little color and warmth through all seasons.

Only 4 days until the Girl Scout cookie boxes arrive; but, I'm in the mood for a cookie now. So, I'm gonna try this Salted Chocolate Chip cookie recipe from David Lebovitz. I had the opportunity to hang out with David Lebovitz at an IACP conference many years ago. He is such a cool guy with a great sense of humor and an amazingly creative baker.
