As promised I am updating my blog to reflect the past year of projects. This is the third year we have had this group and I am proud to say I have been in it since the beginning. I am not the best blogger in the group. There are some that blog 2-3 times a week. I am lucky if I blog 2-3 times a month. But I have totally enjoyed this group. I have made some fantastic blogging buddies. I have learned so much from these people. I have overcome fears of 'trying something different". It has been a learning experience that I don't think I could have gotten from 100 lessons at my LYS.
So let's look at a couple of pictures of items that have been completed that never got posted to my blog.
First up is the baby blanket I crocheted for my boss' upcoming great grandchild. I had not picked up a hook in a long time. It was fun to go back to my first yarn craft that I learned. It really didn't take too long to complete. The putting of it together is always the hardest part but I persevered and love it. The Grandma and Great Grandma were so happy with the finished project. Of course there was the "how much do I owe you" question. How can you put a price on something that could become an heirloom? They paid for the yarn and my only request for payment was a photo of the new baby in/on the blanket to put in my photos.
Next up is the Raglan Yoke sweater. This is the second one that I made and I love the outcome. The pattern calls for decreasing around the middle area to make a nice fit, but this lady (me) does not have 'middle area' that wants to be fitted. So I skipped that part and just made it straight down. It fits lovely and it made from a linen/cotton blend. Perfect for the 115 degree temps here in the deserts of Arizona.
So how did I do this year? Lets take a look at my list and see where I stand.
