March was National Craft Month, a deliberate design by manufacturers to get susceptible people like me out to buy more yarn. But I fooled them this year. I did not buy any yarn. I used up bits and bobs from my stash to participate in Ravelry's International/National Crochet Month Scavenger Hunt challenge. Crocheters were given 14 or so tasks to fulfill, and while I didn't complete all of them, I did have fun writing a limerick and lyrics for an ode to my yarn stash (no, I will not submit you to them here; your ears are safe). And I crocheted, quite a bit, actually. One challenge was to make something for charity, which is just too easy a challenge for someone who almost exclusively crochets and knits for charity. Here are the fleeces edged with three different borders (picot, granite stitch, and fans), and two blankets completed for the challenge. And just for fun--we had to pick an unusual holiday in March and crochet something for it, so I chose Pi Day and made a pi. We also had to make a 4-leaf clover in lieu of a shamrock. The challenge was a lot of fun, and I look forward to it next year.
