Crochet Projects Update:

My Topsy-Turvy doll is taking a break. I got to the point where I was making her arms and it is frustrating to crochet in a continuous round such a small number of stitches; I'm taking a hiatus.

I finished the hooded scarf I started some time ago. It is pretty and I love the yarn I used although it is a major pain to work with. Here's the finished item:

I started making some large purple granny squares--12 rounds. I'm making an afghan for one of my friends. Ssshhh, don't tell her. :) Here's the start of the squares:

I'll be switching back and forth between finishing the doll and this afghan. I have a time limit on the afghan.  Sometimes I quickly burn out. Blogging about a wip that has a strong potential to become a ufo gives me incentive to go back to the project and finish it. 

Good night all...

  1. I so agree about the short continous rounds, drives me nuts lol I still cant wait to see the finished doll though, I wish that pattern was free lol I may try and get inventive and make one up myself hehehe In the future of course after I am done with the other projects I have aready started. Your friend is gonna love that afghan I love the colors and of course cant wait to see that. That scarf is just beautiful and I bet it feels so comfortable when wearing it and it sure looks like it will keep the head warm too, thanks for sharing :o)

  2. Thanks Lynn. I was trying to make the arms when dh was watching tv with the lights kind of dim and I got a bit frustrated. I'll get back to it, probably on the weekend.

  4. I can only manage an amigurumi type of project here and there from precisely the same reasons you mention. The granny will be just great. They are always nice.

  5. Your scarf is very pretty Sharon Marie, the yarn looks like it is very soft. I'm sure your friend will love the afghan you are making her. Good luck with all your projects, I look forward to watching them progress. Have a great day!
