A FINISH!

You probably didn’t think I had it in me!

Here is my wedding afghan, about 10 minutes before I gift it!

And it turned out fairly reversible, too!

Geometric Lace Update

I have cast off wedding and am weaving in the ends I neglected.  Hope to have a finish with that one this weekend!  *woo hoo*

Here’s an updated photo of my hexes for Geometric Lace… I need a few more colors here, there are about 140 squares.  Again, not a great photo but I don’t have my good camera with me.

 

Butterfly Progress!

picture022I can’t figure out how to get a picture in here, hopefully this works!

Here is my progress today on Butterfly. FINALLY I can see it looking like something.  I also did a bunch more yellow hexes, but I don’t feel like laying them out for the photo.

 

Dilemma

It’s not a large dilemma, but it’s one I have with tracking my WIPs.  Crafting time has been skimpy lately because of the end of the school year, so I’ve managed to keep up with Wedding but my Stripe afghan is woefully behind.

The dilemma is whether to just bump stripey up to today, and pick up from there, or work at getting caught up?  It’s not like I have a deadline – other than next winter – and stressing me out about a project isn’t a good idea.  However, if I find time to get caught up, the sense of achievement!  LOL

You’ll also notice I added a little color here.  Sad, but I really do love my spreadsheets!  They like color, too!

I don’t have anything worthy of posting a picture… oh wait, yes I do, another stripey hat.  I’ll see if I can find a camera and get a snap.

Two finishes!

Here’s the latest of my round cloths.  This makes #4.  I think.

And here’s my most recent scrap hat to donate.  I realize in the picture that the tan that looks the same in real life wasn’t the same.  I haven’t found to bind off that I like for k2p2.

Finally, Pictures!

I charged up my batteries and couldn’t wait to take more pictures.

First up is Wedding – it’s not due until 8/9 (That’s August 9th for those of you outside the US).  You can see on my king sized bed that I’m well on my way to being a large blanket.  The colors are off-white, lace, azure and nutmeg in Caron One Pounders.  I haven’t gotten through any one of the skeins of yarn, but I did buy extra.  I couldn’t find the nutmeg or azure in a store so I bought online at Joann’s when they had a sale and free shipping.

The colors in the middle of the picture seem truest to the yarn colors on my screen.

 

Next up is my awesome progress on Butterfly.  LOL.  I find chart work slow-going.  I don’t have a deadline, so a row a day suits me just fine.

Here are two of the round dishcloths I have.  I want to make at least 20 by Christmas.  They will be laced onto the tops of jelly jars that have either homemade jam, salsa, or some other treat.  I find these great gifts for the teachers, etc.  The one on the right is how the pattern is written, which is VERY large – bigger than a dinner plate.  The one on the left is the right size for what I want, but I had to add in another color as I ran out.  This one becomes mine.  😀

Here’s that bag of yarn for $1.98.  You can’t see the 5th skein of yarn but it’s a different shade as well.  Who can pass that up?  My only gamble is that if it was owned by a cat lady, I have to only use it outdoors or Aaaaaaahchoooooo!
