Rainbow Edging!

The edging on rainbow is complete! I added a crochet shell edging to rainbow this past weekend. I also purchased some super cute jersey material from JoAnn Fabrics this weekend to add a backing. I can't wait till it's completely finished!

Granny Squares!

I learned how to crochet granny squares! In the class I am taking at Quietly Wild in Woodstock, we learned how to make granny squares, and we will be making a skirt. I have a few squares done for the skirt, and I will scan them in later this week. For now, just a little taste.


My first granny square!

BONSAI!

This is a bit off the knitting/crocheting topic, but I couldn't help but share!

I recieved a most excellent xmas gift from my friend Kennilingus. It's a bonsai potato kit! Check it out for yourself here.


My BONSAI! red potato at home on my desk :)

Crochet Crazy!

So my good friend Katie and I have decided to learn to crochet. We have a most fabulous teacher @ Quietly Wild, Rhonda :)


I finished my first project! It's a single-crochet blue! chenille scarf, with lavendar tickle fur. It only took me a few hours to complete, and I'm really happy to have learned to crochet! This week we're learning granny squares :) more to come!



the whole scarf complete!

rainbow!

Rainbow is semi-complete!

I have been knitting this baby blanket for about a month and a 1/2, taking a few breaks here and there...all I have left to do is a crochet edge, and to decide if I am going to attach a jersy backing. I also apologize for the yellow background. It was the only plain, solid color bkg i had @ the office!
