I have finally finished my baby blanket. It took way to long to complete, about five months! It was mailed out this last Thursday and made it to its final destination, Chicago, yesterday. This is me holding up a corner of it. I am very happy with how it turned out. I am also very happy that the mother loves it and was already using it.

I am also working on crocheting an afghan for a couple of my friends that got married this year. This blanket is a big contrast from the baby blanket. I  have used over two pounds of yarn and I'm only half way complete. I have a little more then a month until I need to have it ready to deliver. I am sure that it'll be done with plenty of time.

I have one more blanket that I need to make this year. I haven't really started it. I have to knit an adult baby blanket. Noah's father wants one. He loves the one that I made for his grandson and wants one just like it. I'm sorry to say that it isn't going to be just like it. For his grandson I did the same pattern that I use for dishcloths, knitting from the corner to corner. I think I'm going to make a few squares for Noah's father and use yellow and blue squares, compared to one giant square that I did for his grandson's.


Projects finally!

I finally have some projects that are complete or near completion.

A week or so ago I found out that another of my aunts have had a hysterectomy. So, I set off to crochet a uterus for her.  I was sent the pattern a few months ago when everyone was upset about Male politicians making decisions about Female body parts. The plan was to create a bunch of these little guys to send to the politicians. That way they would have one of their own.  This pattern can be found here. It was very easy to crochet. The hardest part was the loop stitch, but once I found how to do that stitch it was smooth sailing to complete it.

Another project that I have been knitting, for what seems like forever, is a baby blanket for one of my friends that I used to work with. It really was not that hard to knit. It was pretty much fitting it in with all my other projects that I have been doing. The pattern can be found here. I still have a ways to go on getting it complete. I have to finish the side boarder and then do the top and bottom boarders. I really like how this blanket has been turning out. I almost want to keep it for myself. But there is no little one of its way in my family. So, the blanket must leave.

I have one more project that is close to completion. I am crocheting an afghan for two of my friends for their wedding present. I have about 1/3 done. With something that is this far from done I figure taking a picture of it would be the "kiss of death" to the project and I won't get any more of it done. Lets just saw that it is purple and brown double crochet in "clusters" of three. It is going to be over 60" long once I have it finished. Right now it is 23" in length.
