The Hunt Is On!
In crochet news, things are finally moving along smoothly with the blue baby blanket I've been working on. I don't have any recent progress pictures so you'll just have to trust me on this one. One thing that is helping is the fact that I've actually been wanting to crochet which is nice. To keep myself from getting burned out with the baby blanket I've been doing little side projects. I think I mentioned them before...? I made several snowflakes but since I don't have anything to stiffen them I haven't taken any pics. I did get a small tree skirt made. It's for a little tree I had on a table on our front porch. I was very pleased with how it turned out. I tried making one for the tree inside, but for some reason I kept goofing it up and finally just gave up on the whole thing.
Santa was very good to me this year and I'm thinking of getting one of those round knitting looms with some of my Christmas money...they're Knifty...ha! I've been down the knitting with sticks route, but it just goes too slowly for my tastes. I guess I should be more patient and practice more, but I can't help my flaws! They're fairly cheap and look like fun. Anyone out there ever played with one? I've seen a few patterns online for these looms, not a lot, but enough to spark the imagination and to learn the basics. After that I'm sure it would be fairly easy to come up with my own. We'll see.
