A New WIP and Lately!

When you have been working on a project and don’t take time to take a photo or too to share! That would be 🙂 I started a new crochet afghan pattern. It is called Park Avenue and is a lovely pattern and easy (so far). You make 6 separate strips and then with your contrast color attach and add a border. I am going with Aran and burgundy for the border.

I have also continued knitting squares with spare bulky yarn! It should be very squishy and warm when completed!

Last but not least, I had been growing my hair for quite some time to donate. I finally had it cut Friday and mailed it this morning to Wigs for Kids. It was really such an easy thing to do. My hair is really short now! I may not take time to post too often, but surely make time to visit each of you a couple times a day! Thank you for sharing 🙂

Lately and Finished The Blanket

Ok, Where did this month go? I surely hope the New year has been good to you so far!  I have been quite productive, ( Dr. appt.’s and such for procrastinating so long 🙂  We celebrated my Love’s Birthday and Retirement!   We also purchased a Bedroom set for our guest room.  Besides all of the above, I finally finished the Octavia baby blanket.  I was thinking you could choose yarn, color of your choice and weave it through the border. This would also be nice to make a lovey, ( a stuffed animal to attach to it).  It would also be nice to donate to anywhere! Without further a do!

Have a Wonderful Day!

Yarn on the Needles This Week

I am still coming up with projects to use up the yarn in my stash. So, in the evening or during the day I have something to work on, without worrying of row counts at this busy time of year! I can pick it up and move it out of the way if need be too.  One is a blanket similar to the traditional dishcloth pattern, the other is a Ribbed hat.

This Week at a Glance!

Time to download a couple pics and jot a few words of the week at a glance! 🙂  My love and I joined a Co-op and I got my first medium bin yesterday!  I was so excited 🙂  This is definitely a positive experience and I am looking forward to what will be listed  for the next weeks gifts.  I will try roasting my zuchini and eggplant tomorrow! It will be a first for me 🙂 ( hard to believe with the years of cooking!)

On to the knitted throw, I can’t believe how hard it is to photograph black stitches 🙂  I will be working on it in a little bit tonight 🙂

Have a Wonderful Evening!

This Week, Knit and Crochet!

Well, I started and crochet project and already finished it! I wanted to use the other to skeins of Craft-Tee yarn.  I started with a square one and wasnt feeling thrilled so I ripped it out and started this Round (flower) Rug yesterday and finished it this morning!  On the Knitting project, this will take some time, so I will crochet while working on this throw!  One of the colors is black. The photo really doesn’t show stitch definition at all! but that is whats on the needles 🙂 I will be adding gray and blue.   Now, I must tackle this crazy mess of a crafting area, the desk is clean 🙂 These two areas share this one room!  That is it for now! I look forward to each of your writtings daily 🙂
