I have so much to share I am not sure where to start. Scarves have been finished and blocked, my fingers have picked up tiny knitting needles and come up with a snowman, and the beginnings of a baby blanket for a shower gift has started. I also got a custom order this week for a poncho, which I am excited about starting!
So....let's start here...
I can never tired at looking at all this warm color! I just want to wrap up in it.
This, my Bloggy Buddies, is the reason I love crochet. Those of you that crochet and crave the mixture of colors coupled with a good granny know exactly what I mean! I must admit, I left this scarf draped around the dress form, just for the simple pleasure of being able to gaze at it as I walk into my kitchen. This simple thing pleases me to no end and usually gives me the urge to jump right back into that yarn basket to see what damage I can do next!
And here we have scarf No. 1. A friend of mine at work, who appreciates a good granny square scarf, took one look at this and I thought for a moment I would not get it back!! But I did, and I am sure Santa will be bringing her one for Christmas this year.
So....it was a given I would have to make another, right!!! LOL!
So, here it is, No. 2! Just as pretty and full of that warm color in those traditional grannies that I am so nuts about!
And of course, I have to include a snap of Phoebe! After all she is right by my side as I crochet, protecting me from all those sounds she hears coming from outside, usually the kids in the street!
Okay, so sorry, but just one more granny square picture...
I want y'all to be able to see all the colors I put into these scarves.
So, with that done, I set my sights on trying to knit a little snowman. I had seen so many cute ones on Ravelry, all saying how easy they were, so I did, and,
Ta - da!
I named him "Wooly". And now, I have been seriously been bitten with the snowman bug, which is not a bad thing mind you, it's just that I have a couple things I need to finish up before cranking out snowmen. For those who would like the pattern, it is free on line. Here: http://www.knitlist.com/01gift/snowman-ornament.htm I did put my own personal flair to him. The pattern has a top hat...I wanted a tobogan on him. He is a true ornament, about 4 inches tall. Oh, I crocheted a little carrot nose on him, too.
Next on my list is a little baby blanket that is a shower gift for a daughter of a lady I work with. And yes, it is granny squares, and gobs of different baby colored yarn with some brights thrown in the mix. It is turning out quite cute. I promise some pictures when I get finished.
I do love the Fall. My brain begins thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas, and the things I want to make to give as gifts...just to realize, there is no way I can get everything made! These shorter days also keep me inside with my yarn in the evening, which I love!!!
I am hoping everyone has a great week!
