Changes & Crocheting

Hello to all my fellow crocheters and blog readers!

Changes are taking place in my life. Last Friday, I was laid off from my position at a college library. I will miss all the friends I made there and the wonderful children's room. I am once again pounding the pavement (figuratively speaking) to find a new position.

At the same time, my mom has switched to third shift. This is quite an adjustment for the whole family. As I have more time now, I've taken over the cooking, grocery shopping, and the dogs' care. I like being able to help out.

Despite the changes in my life, I am still finding some time to crochet. I finished the baby boy afghan (Coffee, Aran, Light Blue) this week. I will post a picture soon. I have about 42 squares left to make for the "Baby Butterfly" afghan (Plum Pudding, Artist Print, Blueberry Pie, Medium Thyme, Buff).

After that I get to start on the Hogwarts scarves. I purchased the yarn earlier this week. For the Gryffindor scarf, I'm using Red Heart Super Saver's Burgundy and Gold. For the Ravenclaw scarf, I'm using Royal and Medium Brown. The girl wants Ravenclaw colors from the books (blue and bronze) as opposed to the movies (blue & silver).

Mom has decided she also wants be to make some hats for her cousin's daughter's baby. She wants them to match the afghan so I'll use Coffee and Light Blue. Found a new pattern over at The Blue Crab Crochets at Midnight. I'll let you know how they turn out.

Until next week, happy crocheting!
