Most Assuredly

Well, it looks as though I will not be able to finish that purple and white afghan in time for my grandmother's birthday as planned, which bums me out a bit. But since she is feeling better and is traveling, staying with my aunt in Boise, and is not likely to be at home for her birthday, I probably have some more time to finish her present for her.

I do remember days when I spent every waking moment outside of work with yarn in one hand and some sort of tool in the other, knitting needles or crochet hooks. Where has the time gone and when did I get to be so exhausted?

At Last, Some Pictures

The start design afghan is one that I made years ago and put up for a while. I recently finished it with the white border. The poor thing, I think it moved with me twice.

The purple and white afghan is done with a double-ended crochet hook, producing a similar design on each side, but with a different dominant color. This is a birthday present for my grandmother.

Tickling Time

So, the pictures are in the works, so to speak, and I am busily trying to figure out how to move them from my phone/camera to this site.

I am working on birthday and holiday presents right now, particularly the reversible blanket for my grandmother, which must be done in about a month, and the lace tablecloth for my mother, which is her intended Christmas present.

Trying to be ambitious, I am intending to finish a pair of socks, a crocheted hat, a knit hat, and perhaps even a knit scarf by Christmastime, or shortly thereafter.
