The end is in sight...

I have 16 days to finish 2 baby afghans. Can I do it? I think I can. My plan of attack is to make the squares for both, run all the ends in, and finally sew them together. I'm about 80% done with the squares for Zoe's Flower Garden. I have 16 made for the Nine Patch Country Girl (that's because the two afghans share a color, Aran).

After I get these 2 done, I'll be working on Christmas gifts until Christmas. I'm not making that much this year. My brother-in-law is getting an IOU for his afghan. Hoping to plan better next year. Divide and conquer and all that.

Until next time, happy crocheting!

Bookworms and Squares

I took a break from the granny squares as planned this past weekend and made 27 bookworms to give my co-workers for Halloween. I ran out of the Boo yarn and had to make about half with Red Heart Super Saver's Pumpkin. All my co-workers were happy to get them. I plan to make bookworms for Thanksgiving. For Christmas, I'm thinking I might make wreath ornaments.

I'm working on the Cornmeal squares for the Zoe's Flower Garden afghan. My goal is to have it and the Nine Patch Country Girl done before the end of the month so I can concentrate on Christmas gifts.

Until next time, happy crocheting!
