Coasters and a Hat

Over the weekend and this week, I battled a sinus infection, so I didn't crochet as much as I'd hoped. I did finish all the coasters. A friend contacted me about making a football hat for her baby son's Halloween costume. So I found a pattern and made it. I'm looking forward to getting back to squares. I don't think I'll be making my October 31st deadline, but that's okay. I'll be posting pictures of the coasters and hat soon.

Until next time, happy crocheting!

Coasters Not Squares

I took a break from squares this week to make gifts for some special ladies that have just completed a faith-based residential life skills training program through a ministry at my church. I'm using this pattern to make them coasters. I'm making 2 each for five ladies.

I'll probably be making coasters and squares this weekend. I'm getting excited to get started with my other Christmas gifts.

Until next time, happy crocheting!

What I've Been Up To...

I finished off the first skein of the Real Teal yarn. It made 20 squares. I only have 32 more to go. I'm still hoping to finish the afghan by the end of the month.

In the meantime, I find my mind turning to the other Christmas projects I need to be working on. I'm hoping this will be the impetus to spur me on to complete the afghan by my chosen due date. I'm going home for a fall festival this weekend. Not sure how much crocheting I'll get done.

Until next time, happy crocheting!

Christmastime's a'coming!

As of today, there are only about 80 days until Christmas. I'm starting to miss my high school, college, and grad school days when I had the time to work on Christmas gifts all year. I suppose I still could if I'd cut back on the baby afghans and just make time for a little crochet every day.

This week's been a bit odd. I've been really tired at the end of my work day so I haven't managed to do much in the evenings. I'm giving myself a three day weekend and hope to rejuvenate and crochet. I did make a few Real Teal squares this week.

I've been gathering information for my Christmas list like favorite colors. I actually think I need to write up another list so I can see all the changes I've made.

Until next time, happy crocheting!
