Busy, busy...

I took a bit of a break from crocheting between about March/April "ish" to May/June "ish" to catch up on some reading. I do this every year because I work so hard through the summer and fall to get things finished in time for Christmas that I really just need a break.

So when I sat down to actually see where I was in my projects for charity this year I realized I am very behind. This year has been busy with my trip back to Washington in May and learning to knit... and of course my reading-vacation... I just have slacked off way too much. So I have spent the last couple... or few weeks getting caught up. Here is where I am at...

Green Ripple Blanket... about halfway done and I really should focus some on it too.

Crochet Along Square Blanket #1 (Purple and Green)... I am caught up to June! Here are some of the latest squares...

Crochet Along Square Blanket #1 (Dark and Light Teal)... I am caught up to June and working on July! Here are some of the latest squares...

 My knitting is coming along nicely. I have 7 squares done with that and I've learned to knit in the round with Double Point Needles!

I will share more pictures later. I am also working on some small stuffed toys for Operation Christmas Child! So stay tuned because these bunnies I've made are super cute!


  1. It's good to see you back. I'm slacking this summer too--the reading bug has finally hit me again and I'm enjoying it. I have been working on a couple of pair of socks though. We're leaving on vacation tomorrow so I'm not sure what I'll get done for the next couple of weeks. Take care.
