It's been a few weeks. I've been a very bad blogger these past few months. I'm sorry. But that doesn't mean I haven't been crocheting! The first thing i'm working on is the towel toppers that my grandmother used to make. After Christmas last year, I went and picked up about 24 of these towels to make for the family. My grandmother always handed them out as gifts for everyone, and I said I would do that as well. I'm only about half done.
The next thing i'm working on is taking apart the crochet along blanket I was making. I decided to take it apart straight from the blanket into these squares. I have the idea in my head on what i'm going to do with them... I just can't seem to make it work. Maybe after the holidays.
More things? Of course! I get very bored working on just one project at a time. My mother bought this yarn and asked me to make a scarf for my nephew. To be honest, I have yet to find a crochet scarf pattern that I actually like that is manly for my 8 year old nephew. So, I decided to knit it. I really like this pattern, I just wish it wasn't so slow.
And last but not least, I am making an afghan for my 13 year old niece. Hence the bold colors. This is going to be a super simple quick throw that is similar to the "V" stitch throw. It has rows of "V" stitch, and rows and just plain double crochet. So it'll be different, just still quick and easy! I hope she likes it. If there's time I'm also going to make her a pair of slippers to go with it.
And that's it. I'm mainly working on the last two right now... although I should get working on more of the towel toppers. I figure I have a month! And I can usually get 4 done in a night. I have time. :)
