Wow! This has been a tough few weeks! I was planning on posting on Monday, but the catch-up that I had required that I ignore the blog again. Yikes! My intention is to post every day again, but it may take a bit for me to ramp up to that…
In the meantime, here’s what I’m up to crochet-wise: 99.9% done with my MIL scarf – just need to sew it together, made several cute head bands, finished my shawl, making a different headband for Ellie and 60% done with some socks for Sammie. Oh, and working on a hat for my friend who gave us a TON of hand-me-downs.
Since I don’t have pictures of everything yet, I’ll draw it all out into several posts….
First, the shawl. This’ll be drawn out into two posts, too. Man, I LOVE this shawl! I loved making it, blocking it rocked, I love wearing it and I love the yarn!
Bummer. One of my photos won’t come through…
Anyway, I’ll have to get back to you on a photo of me wearing the shawl. I love that it’s so thin and will wrap it into a scarf and toss it around my neck. I actually do this more than I wear it as a shawl. And it’s warm! (We’re still getting snow here!) But I can tell that this summer, it’s going to be way to warm so I might have to figure out which cotton to use with this or a similar pattern….
Remember that little green headband I made? Well, I went to a bit of a family reunion for my folks before they went to Alaska and got a few requests for others!
Ahh, it feels good to post again! Now I need to get crackin’ and take some more photos, finish sewing and block the scarf (today?! I hope so!) and get some shots of me wearing my shawl. Which probably means I need to take a shower. Gosh, such a full day! 😉
How are your projects going? Did you even notice I was gone? LOL!
