*big sigh* and Thank you Lord!
Now, onto some blog sharing of the crocheting kind.
I found this good tip on finishing off threads in your crochet.
|from 'Playin' Hooky' blog|
While checking out her site I saw on the top tab a free pattern which looks good too! She calls it the Brain Wave Beanie. :)

But... I am always confused about patterns because of the silly differences in terms around the world.
The pattern above is from the USA.
The UK and the USA use the same terms but they mean different things. Being in Australia, I am confused because some follow the US was and others the UK. From the chart below, they say Aussies use the UK version.
I found this great, chart to convert crochet patterns Here
This following chart from "Fresh Stitches" is a little different but also includes the hook conversions.
If you click here you can download this printable conversion chart. (Although I thought "slip Stitch' means the same in both countries???)
There is a really comprehensive guide on wikapedia here.
Are you as confused as I am, now that more patterns are coming through from the US?
Other Aussie crocheters... which version do you follow?
