I finally have some FO's (finished objects) to display! First I have two dishcloths. Although you really can't see the pattern in the green one it is an open, airy design, done in a simple DC/Chain pattern. The red one has the FDP and BDP, which really help with scrubbing. And yes, it's red although the picture does look a little orangey. I needed something small to carry around with me to do on the bus to and from work and during lunch because I didn't have anything to read and I get bored easy.

Next is the Fall Shawl, which Bethanie is trying to model. Her arms weren't long enough to hold it from end to end and the back comes down to her knees. But it's finally finished. Doing the shawl was no problem, it was just a simple DC pattern; it was doing all the fringe that made me put it away and keep it away for a while but I finally started the fringe this past Monday (1/19)and finished it yesterday (1/23). Yay!!!! And it's warm, too.

Finally, the Afghan Throw. I did this in the Lion Brand Homespun - Waterfall. It's so warm and cozy. This is going to Jennifer and Alex because it was their Christmas present. I should have had it finished in time but I had set it aside to do other things and it just didn't happen. But now I'll be sending this and the dishcloths to her.
Now I need something else to do. Leslie's birthday is coming up in March. Maybe I'll try some summer clothes or hats or a swimsuit cover-up. When I find something I want to try, I'll write back about it.
Until next time, keep on hooking.

It's January

Gosh, can you believe it's been like 6 weeks since I last posted? Let's see...we've had Christmas, New Year's, and Bethanie's 14th birthday since then. Kevin's is tomorrow.

So did everyone have a nice holiday? I had a nice Christmas and a wonderful New Year's. I went to visit Jennifer and her beautiful family. Bethanie went too but she and my parents drove to Kentucky and I flew to Nashville. Kevin stayed home as he was in the Holiday Open Shuffleboard tournament. And he ended up getting very sick that week.

Alex teaches Bethanie a dance.

My little granddaughters, Leslie and Aaliyah, were so funny. Leslie is almost 4 and she is so articulate for her age. So smart. Aaliyah is 19 months and loves the word NO even if she doesn't really mean it. They are both very well behaved for their ages. Jennifer and Alex have done a great job with them so far. It was great to see them. I can't wait until the next visit.

I finally have a FO and WIP that is almost finished. I'll have pictures of those really soon.

Until next time,

Keep on Hooking
