I have ’em, and therefore have to take a few days off. I can’t be too down about it, though, as I am taking pictures for a big town project, and they will be featured on the local news. Nothing wrong with that at all.

My first granny square. It’s gonna be a K-State baby granny for the local charity shop at Christmas time. So many purple and white fans around here, it should be a hit.

I may have an addiction

I love yarn. Squishing it, collecting it. It’s a terrible addiction. Even more, I like creating with it. A few new projects …
Samantha's Ripple
The ripple afghan, frogged and started over as a round ripple.

Mesh produce bag. I’ve GOT to get a better picture.

Another tiramisu baby blanket. Did the stitches a bit different this time around.

Another done

Finished up another project. Now it’s time to frog my ripple afghan that I started for my sis and redo it as the round ripple, which was much more fun and faster to work up.

Yes, it is spring. It hit 75 degrees today, the sun is shining. Awesome.

As for me, I’m still plugging along on several different projects. Like always, because I can’t stick to just one thing. I sometimes wonder if I don’t have mild ADD. But that’s okay. It works, for now.

I’m still plugging along on the “starghan” for my parents. I had, at first, thought maybe I’d gone overboard when buying the yarn for it, but now I’m thinking I may have to pick up a skein or two more of each color. Because I want it to be big. Here’s the latest picture of it.

I also started a round ripple for … whoever ends up with it. It’s “masculine” colored, so maybe one of the boys will end up with it. I just started it up last night, but it’s working up fairly quickly.

And a work in progress.
Emma's Baby Hat
Baby hat to go with the baby blanket.

Boy Beanie
A beanie I made for my boy, only didn’t check my gauge and so it is too small.

Pattern: Basic Half-Double Crochet Hat

Mom & Dad's Starghan
Pattern: Beth’s Little Star Afghan
The “starghan” I started for mom and dad’s anniversary gift. Or a combined Mother’s Day/Father’s Day gift, depending on when I get it done.

I’d probably be done but …

freaking KU decided that they wanted a close game for the National Championship.  My nerves can’t handle this!

Tiramisu Baby Blanket

Okay, so I completely over-estimated the time I would have to actually work on the baby blanket. But, I’m about 75% done with it, which is still moving pretty fast for me. I may even have time to crank out a matching hat and maybe even some booties before we go visit.

I have a niece!

Filed under: current projects, daily — Nicole @ 10:36 pm

In a sea of all nephews, I finally have a lone niece.  Bring on the pinks and frillies!  As soon as I got off the phone I put the ripple afghan on hiatus to work up one of these.  I should have it done by tomorrow afternoon, followed closely by a little baby hat to go with it.  Yay.
