Latest Crochet Projects

I would love to be able to quit my job and crochet full-time.  Unfortunately that is an unrealistic goal beings that I like to eat and have a roof over my head.  I do however make time during the day to pursue my hobby.

I am going to my great-niece’s birthday party this weekend.  I can’t believe she will be a year old.  Her mother asked me if I could make her a sock monkey hat but of course it just had to be pink.  I was actually partial to the sock monkey color so I made her one of each.  One with a pom-pom and one with a flower.  Aren’t they the cutest?  I hope she likes them.

My co-worker asked me to make a pink sparkle puppy for her daughter for Christmas.  (What is up with all this pink crap?) She picked out the pattern.   He is more like a floppy rag dog.  His cuteness is starting to grow on me I guess.

I have always wanted a granny square sweater and now I have one!  I had a ton of scraps and below is the result.  Yes it is colorful and maybe a bit seventies-ish (is that a word?) but I love it!  Only problem is I may not wear it often as it is very warm.  I may make another one using only black and white granny squares.

And this is the project I am currently working on.  Just a black and white afghan, unfinished, in a heap on my sofa.  The pattern somehow reminds me of Greek architecture.
