Hi again. I am a bit later than normal to post my Sunday update. I was rushing around this morning trying to finish up a project I started a few days ago. Ready to see what all I accomplished this week? Let's go!!!!
The Raspberry Fields shawl is completed. Hooray! I know you can not tell from the photo but each one of those squares is 12". This shawl is darn near 7 feet long. It is going to the Prayer Shawl group as I will never wear anything this large. Also, I will never make another one of these. I will say, it was a great stash buster. I used up 500 grams of DK weight yarn on this shawl.
My other FO for this week is:
The Easter Bunny Basket made from a bleach bottle. This was something new for me to do. My attorney had asked me if I thought I could make one. She gave me her daughter's basket and I found a pattern on Etsy that was super close to the original.
Making pom poms is not my favorite activity. I will say, these pom poms are darn cute though.
There were a total of 4 pom poms. The basket was all done as of last night. This morning I put it all together.
I then ran to Walmart to pick up the eyes and the black foam for the nose. I had the pink heart in some craft items my Grand Daughter has here. For the whiskers I just separated some of the white yarn on either side of the nose.
Here they are together. I think my attorney will be pleased. BTW, she picked the color.
After I finished crocheting all the pieces of the bunny I decided I needed to work on a little something until I could get the finishing items today.
Yup, another dishcloth. I need 9 more in the white. After this one is completed that will knock it down to 8.
I am patiently waiting for Amazon to deliver a yarn order I placed last night. My great nephew is being baptized in April and I wanted to make the baptismal blanket for him. I would have needed to go to 4 JoAnn's to obtain enough of the wanted yarn to make the blanket. Ordering it from Amazon saved me about a 50 mile round trip.
I did get a very nice gift for Valentine's day:
My hubby knows what I love...............yellow roses are my favorite!
