Flowers! And More
I'm looking forward to participating in my first swap at Crochetville. I love getting things in the mail and making things for others.
I'll be making some of the flowers from here and here.
It starts in March so I should get started trying out some of the patterns.
I am currently finishing up on a baby blanket that was going to be for one of daughter dolls. Dd thinks it's too big for her doll so now I'm making it for one of dh's co-workers who just had a new baby girl. It's very simple, just a front post dc stitch but it give such a fun texture to it. It is so soft because I'm making it with Caron Simply Soft so I can't help touching it every so often.
I will need to make a afghan for myself out of Simply Soft soon. I did buy the Leisure Arts 63 Squares recently which I plan to make an afghan with soon. I want to use it because I will learn so many new stitches. I just sent an order in to Annie's Attic for some Amigurumi patterns, other animal patterns and Tunisian sweater.
I also started another sweater for myself. This one will be a pull-over. It's my own design, kind of freeform. I'm using Lion Bran Homespun and a K hook. I plan on sharing more about it soon.
If you want to see what been keeping me so busy lately and why I have not been adding to this new blog check out some of my recent posts on my personal blog. I'm reminiscing about my travels in Europe when I was in my 20's. I want to go back.
