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.
