I tried to be back - but too many things have been distracting me!
I've been busy reading these two books.
I did promise a photo parade of WIPs - so here they are.
Ravelry gets me into trouble - I belong to the Loom-a-Long group and we are working on Cable Mitts by Isela Phelps.
I've also joined the Haekelbeutel CAL and using up my cotton stash.
Pattern is a PDF here
A little baby poncho from Lion Brand yarns. Using LB Homspun.
An Innovations Hat that needs the crown part knitted. I find I like to hand knit the tops instead of the usual gather up finish. This one is made with Wool Ease and a Fun Fur brim.
Six inch squares for a bright baby blanket.
A Mile-A-Minute type crocheted afghan for oldest daughter. I think we had started this when she first lived in Aurora, Colorado. Then she moved to Texas and the project became a UFO.
Now she's back in Colorado and I've decided to finish this for her before she moves somewhere else!
A scrap blanket on the Bond/ISM. The plan is to make 4 panels and fold them inhalf, crochet around them and then crochet them together. A variation on the 9 Patch Pattern.
