Busy Little Bee

I have been crocheting so much, my hook is smoking! I have so much going at the same time my head is spinning!

I had been working on two ripples when someone posted a pattern for a Jacob's Ladder Afghan and I just had to try it. It looked so cool.

What I like about it is it works up really fast and is not boring especially if you do the overlapping of the chains as you go. Here is a picture of it in progress.

I photographed it with the chains done and undone so you could see how neat it is.

This one is a keeper it will match my spare room bedspread perfectly. The ripples are Christmas gifts.

That's all for now, gotta go my hook is calling me.

I added a poll to my blog today. I thought it would be fun. I will try to do a new one every month or so.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I won't be on for a few days due to the holiday. I am presently working on these projects:

Ripple Afghan
Round Ripple
Tote Purse

I need to make some fingerless gloves. Gee I have my work cut out for me!

I am hosting Thanksgiving at our house, so I will be too busy to even look at my hook, (maybe sneak some in while meal is cooking though).

We had our first snow yesterday just a dusting but made things a bit slippery. A few accidents out there. People just need to slow down!

In closing, I just want to wish from my family to yours,

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. May you have much to eat, lots of laughter and being a couch potato afterward is totally allowed.

Brown & Aran Round Ripple

I am so happy!!! I have finally figured out this pattern. I tried to do this a few months ago and had no luck at all.

I am making this for my mother for Christmas. I hope she likes it.

I will probably make my granddaughter Emily one also in Soft Baby Colors.

Dog Sweater

This precious pooch belongs to my co-worker Pam.

I made this sweater without a pattern and I think it came out pretty good.

Here are pics of Tammy strutting her stuff!

She looks quite pleased with the results and says "bring on winter baby".

Completed Items

This shawl is made out of Vanna's Choice Charcoal Print and it is very warm. It measures 36" from top to tip.

I finished three projects this past week:

The first is a bunny for my grandson's birthday. He is brown and tan and stands about 13" tall. It is from a 1995 McCall's Crochet magazine. This was my first attempt at the puff stitch and I think it really came out cute.

And last but not least, this baby ghan. The colors are pink, purple, blue, green, white and yellow. It measures 36" x 29". The pictures does not do it justice. Very soft. This and the shawl are for sale in my shop.

Wash Cloth

Today I made up this wash cloth using the sedge stitch. It worked up nicely. I can't wait to use it.

When I get a chance, I will make up a bunch and put them in my Etsy Shop.

I think they will really be big sellers!
