And another thing...

People who write "boarder" where they actually mean "border" - how annoying this usage is! This particular gem is from a crochet group on Facebook of which I am a member. I've lost some strength in my teeth from gritting them so tightly whenever I come across a query about a boarder (tip: always get references from previous landlords before you take on a boarder. Not so important if you're only referencing your crochet project) - which is all the time, because there are so many members who can't tell the difference. That said, plenty of them can crochet rings around me (as a beginner), and I have the utmost respect for their expertise, so I guess they have the last laugh, really.
