So, I knitted these and they've not been used. I'm upset as I found the shawl still in the packing that I used to give it. Grand daughter is now four months old so will not be using a of it. Boo hoo
Blanket for special friend
This blanket has been made to replace a blanket which has been lost ,I used stylecraft dk yarn and size 4mm hook it took 800. Grams ,
My stash is getting a bit out of control and to add to that I tend to hoard items that I knit or crochet, this house is groaning with the amount of craft stuff I have. I did put a few things up for sale this week but the mittens are going to Dublin with me for the wee ones in the family.
Swedenme had a knit along a few weeks ago and I loved the pinafore she knitted but didn't do it myself at the time. I kept the instructions and this is my effort at it. I cast on 61 stitches instead of 60 because I wanted to put 1 of the hearts in the center of the bib and it has an odd number of stitches but I was finished before I remembered it! Thank you very much Swedenme for sharing your pattern with us.
Two More For The Road
In my ongoing journey of making an afghan for each of my family and friends, these are the two newest finished projects. The Seahawks afghan is for my teenage great grandson who lives in California but is a dedicated Seattle fan, and the other one is for his mother. Hope they like them!
I used Paintbox Simply Chunky yarn for the Seahawks afghan (no particular pattern) and the other was made using "Fields and Furrows Afghan" pattern by Crochet 365, Knit Too. The yarn used in this case was Caron Cakes.
what is your oldest UFO?
Mine is a granny square baby blanket that I started in the early 1970s with yarn bought at Sears and Roebuck. They are still just in squares waiting to be sewn together.
This is Casey. I hope you and the children like the doll. Thanks for looking!
Squishy mail in a box!
I partook of Lion Brands 10 for $10.00 sale, I didn't go wild but got these lovelies to make myself a long vest.
(Although I haven't settled on a pattern yet ) :-)
