Cheery Lapghan

Another lapghan finished for donation to the veterans home when it finally opens. It is scheduled to open in December; at least a year late opening. Anyway, I made the squares quite some time ago and I recently found them. I decided to take a break working on an afghan, because 2 afghans in 2 months is a lot to work on. Still need to wash this and probably block it too. I was concerned with the brightness of the colors but with winter coming on us, it might be cheerful for someone with SAD. Enough of  my rambling on--here's the picture:


Monday's Link to Free Crochet Pattern (24 October 2016)

Here's a pattern for some cozy crocheted boots. They look great and should keep your legs toasty warm. Might be good for someone who is prone to leg cramps in the cold weather that is on its way. Whoever they are for, I'm sure they will keep their legs and feet nice and warm.

Have fun!

A Few More Items

Here are some projects I recently finished. They were all easy and quick to make. I used Caron Cake yarn to make the hat and scarf. I love the colors this yarn comes in but I'm just not too fond of the flimsiness of the yarn and the recommended hand washing of items made from it. Some crocheters have machine washed their items without problems but just be careful.


Hat made with Caron cake yarn :

Scarf to go with the hat. The pattern makes a short scarf that fastens together with a button. I made this scarf a longer length and omitted the button. Here it is:

I am working on a manly looking afghan and it's almost 1/2 way finished. It's coming along nicely and I hope to have pictures before too long. 

Wishing you all happiness and health...
