So glad it is almost Friday!!

Today was such a long day at work.  We are alittle slow and time just drags by. I would rather be to busy to think straight then be bored out of what little mind I have left. Hopefully everything goes good tomorrow and the weekend will finally be here.  I wanted to post a couple of projects. I finished my sons afghan. It ended up being just big enough to go across my queen size bed.
My other big project is a Christmas granny square afghan. I am doing it in I love this Yarn: sparkle.  Here are a couple pics:

I posted the link where I got the pattern from.  I have all the red squares done. I am just putting the border around them and then I have the green and white to do.

I almost forgot... I started reading the Dexter Series. I love the show so much I had to see how close they are.  So far not disappointed.  True Blood on the other hand is so way off base but I like it too.  Can't wait to see what next season holds.

I hope that you all have a great weekend.  I'll check in with you soon

I saw a cute pattern for a sweater the other day and thought about trying it... mind you I have never tried to do anything that complicated before. I tried baby booties once but they turned out different sizes.  The pattern for the sweater using Red Heart Pomp-a-Doodle yarn. I looks really cute.  I went to the craft store and bought just one to see how it was to work with. I watched a couple how to videos on you tube. I love you tube as a tool to learn new things.  It was a little difficult to start with and I still have trouble at the end of rows but i am trying to make a scarf out of it.  I will post a pic when I get it done.

Hats I have made

These are a few of the hats that I have made in the last 2 wks.  My lovely daughter got to be my model.  I will post the link of the patterns as I come across them again.

Scarf Patterns

Just surfing around and looking for scarf patterns for Christmas presents.  I found a few cute ones that I should be ok.  Still learning new stitches all the time. Hobby Lobby has some discontinued yarn maybe I can find some in there that would work well.  I made another hat yesterday when I should be working on my sons afghan.  I told him I would be done with it before it was cold out but I might not make it. We will have to get busy on it this weekend,

1st time blogger

I guess I will use this blog to introduce myself.  I am 34, live in IN and have 2 wonderful kids. Jess is 10 and Evan is 13.  They are going to really be fun in the next few years.  My 2 favorite things to do is crochet and reading.  If only I could do both at the same time.  I have done a few hats lately that I will try to figure out have to post.  I am also working on an afghan for my son.  It is black and different shades of camo yarn.  I have about 4 more sections to go before it is done. I have trouble doing larger projects. I get bored to easy so I try to mix lots of little projects.

Have a great day,
