Crochet Accomplishments in 2009

Gee whiz, I really thought I had crocheted more this year than I actually did.  I keep track of my accomplishments in my signature block at crochetville.org .  I know I won't finish any projects before the new year starts so I decided to post my list today.  Anyway, here they are:

Finished 2009: dishcloth (asst) 19, hotpad/potholder 3, hexagon afghan 1, granny sq. 56, scarf 3, kk hat, slippers (19 pr), rr afghan 3, baby blnkt 1, lapghan 1, shawl, mat for dogs.

My latest WIP (work in progress) is a doily.  I've never made one before and am only undertaking it at the request of my uncle who recently moved into his own geo-bachelor (geographical bachelor) place for the winters.  I chose a relatively simple pattern that doesn't have a lacy flowery look to it.  You can see it here .  I'm not sure if I'm using the correct size thread since I've never used thread before; just had the thread in my stash from a thrift store find.  In case I don't get back here in the next day or 2, I'd like to wish all of you a happy New Year!  Hugs...Sharon


  1. Quite an accomplishment with the crocheting there, Ive just done a couple scarves and of course my chemo caps Ive tried a wrist warmer a couple of times but it always comes out too big so I gave up. I want to do a doily one day, but I looked at that pattern and I dont even know what those stitches are, good luck with yours because I really did love that pattern though.

  2. I hope to finish the doily one day. My uncle wants 2 for the arms of his couch. I have the pattern down pat now to get to the last row and see how I figure that one out.:) I finished quite a few of my smaller projects by carrying them in my purse and working on them when I waited at doctors' offices and on my lunch break when I substitute teach. I really don't like waiting and twiddling my thumbs. Crocheting gives people a reason to want to talk.
