Crocheting Christmas 2013
Here's a shout-out to my lovely weekly knitting/crochet circle, the Denver Friday Night Knitters. You're a great bunch, and working with all of you has become one of the highlights of my week!
Gifts for my SuperPreschooler
As you can see, I made her a simple scarf, a Halloween set that ended up being a Christmas present, and a rainbow bedspread so large that I didn't even attempt to spread it out to photograph it in its full glory. The bedspread is arranged in the actual order that colors occur in a rainbow--thank you, Sesame Street, for teaching us the helpful mnemonic device, "Roy G. Biv" (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet)!
Gifts for others
My Favorite Resources
Attic24--An absolutely delightful and so helpful site, to whose owner I owe most of my ripple/chevron successes!
The historic "Christmas Blanket" (so named by the SuperToddler), begun in December 2011, and finished almost exactly a month later, in January 2012.
Baby blankets for charity! Three cheers for St. Paul's Episcopal Church and its dedicated Yarn Crafters, for making this a priority, and for letting me join their ranks. It's a gift that makes everybody involved happy!
My first ripple/chevron creation, which I dubbed my Blueberry Ripple Afghan.
Yarn Along Posts
Yarn Along is a meme hosted by Ginny at Small Things. Be sure to check it out; there are a lot of great yarners and readers over there every week! Meanwhile, thanks to Ginny for inspiring me to get back to my hooks and needles.
January 24--First finished object (FO) of 2012! Ze Christmas blanket, she is completed!!
February 15--Three more FOs! Baby blankets 1, 2, and 3 are a big hit (with my most biased fans, the Good Man and the SuperToddler, at least)!
February 22--Baby blanket 4 is done!
