My Latest Projects..........

After finishing up my felted purses, I started this Basketweave baby afghan


This photo shows the texture really well..........

But this picture shows the color more accurately.

It measures 39.5"x26" and is made of Red Heart worsted acrylic yarn in country blue.  The accent color is a blue multi, but I don't remember what it is called.

I've no clue what I'm going to do with it.  Perhaps I'll just put it in the trunk until I find a recipient for it!

Then I knitted up this scarf.  It's made with wool ease thick and quick yarn in two lovely shades of blue and I used the little shells pattern, although about halfway through the scarf I figured out I messed up the pattern!  I forgot an entire row in the pattern sequence but figured as long as I did the whole thing that way I'd be good and it worked out ok.  LOL!

I'm going to give it to one of my Darling Aunties, Darling Youngest Auntie to be exact.  I was working on it at her house on Saturday and she said it would match her school colors (she's a teacher).  So I'm going to get it in the mail to her tomorrow.  I just finished it last night.

Now I've got to go through the yarn stash and figure out my next project!




God Bless................

  3. Those are lovely projects. It is so much fun creating. You've got me wanting to work on the crocheted spread I started awhile back.

    Have a wonderful Christmas and a great new year.

  5. Oh I Love the scarf! I can only do a basic knit pattern. My grandma used to be the best knitter and all patterns were in her head i think, although she could read a pattern and do it. She used to make me sweaters every year that when I was younger I didn't care so much for... Now that she's gone I MISS those sweaters!

  11. I LOVE the basket weave blankie! I'm a big basket weave fan anyway - I keep thinking I'll use it to make an afghan b/c I know several Longaberger Basket fans, but I haven't found the time to commit to a big project. I've been working on making kid sweaters (the goat kind). We have friends who've always used heat lamps in their barn b/c they like their kids born in Jan. (Boers). Well, last year they had a lamp fall and it nearly burnt their barn down so I'm making them some sweaters as a safer alternative.
    However, The Husband swears that there is a rule against putting sweaters on our own livestock (even if they ARE mine!). I'm making a few anyway in natural colors so that he won't notice from a distance. I'll just have to keep him out of the barn. . .
