New Feature...

Okay, apparently I'm a glutton for punishment, as I have added a new feature to this blog. If you look to the right, under the blog list, you will see a Christmas Countdown calendar. Just in case you need reminding of just how soon the season will be upon us! : ) I'm not sure that I need the reminding...then again, with my track record so far...maybe I do! lol I was going to put this on my regular blog, but it would be so far down the page, no one would ever see it. Meh, don't know how many folks will see it on here, but it's fun to have anyhow.

On a crochet note, I currently have on my hooks: the first sock of my first pair of socks ever, a thread stole that was supposed to be done last June, and several pairs of fingerless gloves. Those last are actually a combination of WIP, WIM, and FO, since I have a pair I need to put the edging on, several pairs I want to give as gifts, and one pair actually finished. Also, as WIMs I want to make some critters from the book Creepy Cute Crochet...I'll find the link later and edit this post to add it.

Currently I cannot take pictures of my projects, as my awesome camera got sat on, or something, and the LCD screen got broken. Fortunately, we had a one-year, no-fault warranty, so we were able to get our money back (couldn't replace, as the camera was a discontinued model), and now we just have to save our money to get the upgrade. *sigh*

All right, I'm off for the night. Hope y'all have a good one! :)

Baby blanket...

I didn't manage to take a picture of the baby blanket I made for Neo's son, but he took one for me and sent it so I could post it here. (Thanks, Neo!) I think it turned out pretty good, even if it isn't quite straight. (I always seem to have that problem....) Anyhow, you should be able to click on it to get a closer look at it.

I really need to start getting more pictures of the stuff I make. With the new camera, I can! Woohoo! : ) (Yes, I know, I"m easily
That's all I have for today. Have a good one!

FOs! Hooray!

Okay, I know it's been a while, but I do have two FOs!

The present I was making for my friend Neo is done! And in case he reads this before I send it to him, I can't say what it is yet or post a pic. But I can say that it is blue and green and very soft! : )

Also, the blanket I made for my sis-in-law got finished in time for the baby's baptism reception thingy. SIL loved it! It's white, pink, and purple, and done in a ripple pattern. Sadly, no pics of that one either. I'll have to fix that.

Now I've just got to get going on the other ones! Later folks!

Crochet WIPs...and WIMs, too...

That's Works In Progress, folks! : )
Okay, so far I have a baby blanket almost done for my sister-in-law's new baby (who was born on 4/25, so I'm a bit late, but to be fair she wasn't due until 5/4--crap, that means I'm still late getting it done...sigh), a project for another friend (hi Neo!) whose wife is due to have a baby soon (better get in gear on that one!), a stole for my daughter's high school graduation (only almost a year late...bigger sigh), and a couple of afghans for me. Those last two are my projects for when I'm not trying to make gifts, so there's no deadlines on those.

WIMs (Works In Mind) include some mesh shopping bags (or string bags, I guess they're called), fingerless gloves, kerchiefs for my oldest daughter Rachele, a blanket for her baby, and maybe some socks if I can find a pattern I like. Also some facecloths for my upstairs bathroom.

And I have some UFOs (UnFinished Objects) as well, but there are too many for me to list right now.

My most recent FO (opposite of a UFO) is a dress that I made for my granddaughter Iris (Rachele's daughter). Hopefully there will be more soon! : )

Okay, that's it for now. Just thought I'd check in and add to this a bit. Have a good one!

Pictures, yay!

Okay, here are a few pictures of necklaces I've made:

This one I made last year sometime.

This one I started last night (4/21/08).  It's not quite done, I need to add more danglies to it! : )

These two are the same necklace.  I made it over this last weekend, and I love it!  I don't want to sell it...*sigh*  Looks like I have to go and buy more beads! lol

Well, there you have it.  My first official post of my creations!  Enjoy!

Blog number two...

Ack! Like I need another one! Oh, well....
Anyhow, on here, I will post pictures about things I am making. Since it generally takes me a while to finish stuff, there will probably be large time gaps between postings. And I don't currently have pictures of any projects right now, so this is all that's going on here today. Disappointing, I know! : )
Bye for now!
