Hi all... just wanted to post something that I learned today.  My friend sent me an email saying that the church to which I donated all those bags of yarn have already made 17 lapghans to give away. 

Good evening! I have been making bunny peeps and bunny baskets

4 seafarers caps packaged and ready to ship.

Wow Darski, those are all so adorable. I can’t even pick a favorite outfit this time. The tiny Christmas babies are very cute.

Owlvamp, how is the one per day going? 
Several years ago I tried to get one hat per week. I did pretty good, skidded and ended up with around 40 instead of 52. 
Seems like one year Darski was doing a hat a day. I remember loving all of the different patterns she posted. 
I have to find the sweet spot between goals and pressure!!

Hi gals...not charity related but my coworker made this pillow for me for my birthday. Too cute. She’s the same one that made the couch.

Darski a belated thank you for the box that arrived earlier this week.  I've been forcing myself to do the I MUST DO list instead of wouldn't it be OK to stop and have some fun list but today it was time.

I can't believe you sent the sweater set.  That has been one of my all time favorites of your baby patterns.  The booties did arrive.  They fell off the chair but they will be included in the donation.  They are my all time favorite booties as they actually fit the doll.

Thanks again for your generosity and kindness.  These are going to be some very happy kids this year.

I am so glad the parcel got to you.  Just a note:  The blue and beige blanket and clothing is part of my B & B pattern set and the little bib belongs to that set.  the blankie is the bed part and the bib is the breakfast part.

My conscience is a bit better after I missed the deadline last year.

Woo hoo! Good for you. I fnished one I was working on at work on my breaks last week, brought it home to weave in the ends. I can still probably get one more from the partial spool I was given.

The pattern is a sc base and then a new row with one sc followed by a triple. Third row all sc, the 4th row is back to sc, triple, sc triple. Works up easy. And is east to pick and find where you are even if you only have time for a short work break.

How many chains do you start off with? One of my favorites is sc the dB crochet ch 1 and turn. Then put a single crochet in top of doubles and DC in top singles. Just keep repeating!.

Owlvamp, I start with 28 stitches, then turn and sc, trc, sc, trc....ending on a sc. chain one, turn and sc 27 times. Chain one, turn, sc, trc, sc, trc and end on a sc. 

Does that make sense?

My camo hat has a big brother now. I like holding variegated yarns with solids to see the different looks they can get. I have some green I am going to try next.  The variegated yarn is Caron brand in the big skein.

Darski...can you tell me the name of the pattern you wrote that started with a flower and ended up a granny square? I loved that one and can’t find the paper copy.

I just wanted to post these pics.  I can still do doll clothes eventually.  these are for a friend to whom I donated a bunch of my 18"dolls .  I just make a skirt over an elastic waistband and then use my old patterns to make tops.  not quite up to my old standards but I've been assured thatlittle ones don't care LOL

They look great to me.  It makes me glad that you are still making doll clothes.

Darski, those outfits are adorable. I’m glad you can still get a little done.  My employer has a wellness plan where you can sign up for “steps” competitions and other kinds of healthy things to enter into contests for gift cards and prizes. This month they are awarding points if you participate in your favorite hobby for 10 out of the next 30 days! Done. But I thought of it because I was going to assume that even though you can’t turn out outfits as fast as you used to, you must get great satisfaction from getting something done now and then at your new pace.

And thanks again for the pattern. Last year I made one and then just made a granny square around it and it was a hit at the shelter when I dropped it off (lol, same place that the lady at work didn’t want to bring in my “used” lovies) That is easier for me to tackle than piecing blocks together.  I got some nice colors of worsted yarn at Goodwill this weekend so I am inspired to make more.
