And here's another infinity scarf I made with the same pattern using 2 skeins of chunky yarn. Love the color, not sure about the yarn.
I've also finished up a few crocheted dish cloths, although I can't find the photos - or the dishcloths for that matter (where do these things go?) I bought a book of patterns, but ended up not liking any of them so I used a couple I found on the internet, here and here.
And, finally, Abby is going to have a baby brother in a couple of months, and I haven't done a thing for the little guy. In fact, I haven't seen Abby or her parents since I went to Sewing Summit in October, although I had planned to go this weekend, but the flights were full. Anyway, the other day, Abby's mommy commented that baby's arrival is now "real" since she spent some time washing and folding tiny clothes and getting things ready. I decided that I needed to do that too, so I made baby a blanket. I went kind of overboard with Abby, so I've been asked to not be quite so generous this time. Still, the little guy has to have something of his very own, doesn't he? What could be more appropriate for the grandson of a pilot than - well - planes? And helicopters... And hot air balloons. Seems to cover all the bases, if you ask me.
My grandmother made one of these flannel blankets with crochet edging for every baby. She passed away just after Amanda was born, so none of my kids got one. I ended up with a lot of them since they were passed down and down and down and my kids are the youngest, so I kind of taught myself to make them. I guess it's kind of an heirloom - at least the idea of them is. Anyway, I'm sure that our new little guy needs at least one.
Then, since I was forbidden to make more blankets for baby, I made a couple for gifts for ladies at work that will be having babies soon.
These are an easy and inexpensive gift, and a great way to keep my hands busy while I'm watching TV. I try to buy the flannel at JoAnn's when they've got it on sale, so this probably only cost me about $5 or $6. And the crocheting maybe took 3 or 4 hours for each one.
So, that's what I've been doing - how about you?
