I'm in trouble! My daughter is at her dad's for 6 weeks and my husband is at an Army school for 8 weeks, so I'm home by myself with nothing to do (besides work) but crochet! So, I've added a few projects (and I'll be adding more!):


1. About 90% done with giant granny throw.

2. Started a round ripple throw.

3. Started a shawl using LusterSheen.

4. Half-finished bath pouf.

5. Still have to weave in ends of daughter's birthday throw.

6. Afghan that I started about 7 years ago:eek

7. Almost finished coffee cozy.

Well, I haven't had much crochet time lately. All I have in the works are some bookmarks,dishcloths,hair scarfs, and stitch markers. Hopefully things will calm down a bit and I and I can get to my bigger projects.

Goodness, I'm glad to see I'm not the only one with severe ADD when it comes to craft projects, hehe.


:hook My WIPs:

Baby Girl Sleeper Set - This is for a co-worker that just had a baby girl. It was 85% complete, but after showing a friend the dress she says it's too small for the baby, so I have to frog it and do some dreaded math to figure out what size will fit, heh.


Trellis Stitch Poncho - A simple but cute project I'm adapting to be shorter and lighter for summer. When complete I'm gonna keep this one! :D


Aunt B's New Angel Wrap - I've got 2-3 of these lil cuties going for friends and their babies.


Jute Sandals - I'm 1/2 done creating my own pattern for crocheted sandals, woot! I'll share the pattern once it's complete and throughly tested.


And that's it... for now! :P

My WIPs!


:rememberWork Doily - "Mocha" (from Leisure Arts Book "Sugar and Cream Doilies") I work as a tour guide at school, and between tours we have downtime to do whatever we like with. So I crochet! :hook I have nine rounds left to go... they just take so long now.


:rememberHome Doily - "Shell" Doily (from vintage doily book) On round 13. Don't know if I'll make this a medium doily or a large one... the pattern is getting really boring, so maybe just a medium, hehe.


:rememberHanging Dishcloth This is for the boyfriend--he loves to cook, so I decided he needs a dishcloth set. ^_^ The current one is a loose weave and can hang on a fridge or oven handle--more to wipe your hands with than to clean dishes with.




:check Small dishcloth. It didn't come out to well, so it's staying in my kitchen instead of going to the bf. :P

I know it's Thursday, but I just stumbled across this thread today, so THERE! LOL


* basketweave dishcloth for friend in MN (LOVE the pattern!!!!!)

* unisex baby afghan for SIL (her first!!:) ) Almost done- started Wed, June 22nd -- she's due Dec 14th

* Embossed Ripple afghan for myself (like 10 rows done -- don't pick it up much)


That's it for now....I keep getting MORE and MORE ideas though

One I need to start is a RH purple and variegated purple ripple for my best friend....I'm so afraid I'll TELL her about it and I want to give it to her for Christmas!

A Rose in Bloom afghan-size I hook

2 thread ties-a red one in a pineapple pattern-size 8 hook and a blue one in hdc-size 10 hook

A Cocoon sweater-size K hook

A 63 squares afghan-size H hook, could be anything from G to K, depending on pattern

A pair of crocheted socks in baby yarn, 2 colors of pink-size E hook

A pair of knit socks in RHSS camo-size 3 dpn

A pair of knit socks in baby yarn-lilac-size 3 dpn

A pair of knit slipper socks in Caron SS-baby varigated-size 7 circ

A crochet tank top-size G hook

A sherbet tank top-size H hook

A knit basketweave scarf-size 10½ straight needles

A crochet eyelet wrap-size J hook

A doily for the doily swap in Aunt Lydia's ecru-size 7 hook(hope that's ok with my swap partner, AL is the only thread I can afford)

Finish detangling that tote of yarn, almost there, just got tired of it, plus I need to finish that shawl and those ties. There's some more stuff in there that needs frogging too.

A beret from the Homespun I used on my black/white pineapple shawl.-size K hook

2 mini-shawls-black in size 0 hook and blue in size F hook, same pattern as the pineapple shawls I've been making only in lighter yarn and smaller hook. This is really an experiment to see what it'll do, it could flop or it could fly.

A knit dishcloth-size 8 needles

A crochet dishcloth-size H hook

A Fleuri Bag-needs to be lined and put together


UFOs I found that I want to finish:


An arrowhead afghan-if I can find the colors I'm using-size ? hook, will have to experiment, not sure if I used hook specified in pattern or went larger.

A scrap afghan in the step pattern-I'm calling it Around the World in 80 Scraps-it's in the quilt pattern called Around the World and I probably can find 80 different scraps to use in it.-size H hook


Also: A hat from Yarn Cat's site-Claire-almost finished


A Cats Afghan-using baby yarn and a H hook


This list keeps getting longer and longer......

I'm working on:

- finishing the test pattern shorts for Etaria.

- starting another size 0-3 months test pattern because I used the wrong yarn and ended up with a shirt big enough for a 3 year old.

- Not crochet, but I'm working on the first of five new PJ sets for my daughter. I can't find PJs with shorts here and what I do find is way to hot, so I bought two pieces of fabric, frogged a bedspread (I ripped the quilting out and it was as much a pain as frogging yarn) and got a piece of fabric from my mother, so I can make at least 5.
