Happy Sunday everyone! Here we go again!
This week I finished a few things and have great progress with a couple other items. I seem to be splitting my time between knitting and crocheting fairly well too!
First with the finishes….
I made a quick stash busting project. It is a preemie cap for the local hospital… I plan in making more of them. No specific pattern…just from my head 🙂
And I finished this amazing cowl… Which was PERFECTLY timed for immediate use during this crazy polar vortex we have been having in Toronto…
Then I started and finished another test crochet pattern for the Scattered Dahlias group. This hat had crocheted CABLES in it. I love how these test patterns push my boundaries. This hat and one I made previously will likely go to the cancer treatment centre at my local hospital too.
I love the idea of doing things for Charity, and upon reading a blog from a fellow blogger last week I realized I could take in the same mind set. The Charity, Gift, Self rotation. I love the idea of it… I think it will help keep me on track with stuff I need to be knitting and crocheting verses the stuff I want to be making for myself.
So where are the gift and self projects you say? First I am going to speak briefly about the self project…
Well… I started this cute little shawl for myself.
It is a simple pattern on the label of the Red Heart Boutique yarn Unforgettable. This yarn is so amazingly soft and beautiful!
The gift project ties into the 52 weeks of Granny… squares! group on ravelry. I am making this tree skirt for my sister in law for Christmas 2014.
This is what I have created so far. 7 “squares” done. 5 to go.
Then I will have to get it OFF my granny group and keep it just on the YoP group, as it will be straight rows of doubles crochet… No more squares. Although, I may have to make more for other people…. Time will tell.
Have a great day everyone!
