Got my first one done for this year! This is the Lavender Lace kit I got from Herrschnerr's back in 2008. This is on my queen-sized bed.

I picked up the baby blanket I'm making last night and got several rows done. I've been practicing learning to knit and had put the blanket down for over a week.

Love the granny stripe LegalWoman17!! I've made 2- such mindless, beautiful fun!!!

This sounds like fun. I would like to be in on it. I have some unfinished afghans that I need to finish up and am currently working on some more baby afghans. Here is an afghan that I made for my eleventh great grandchild, Max, who was born on 9-11-12. 2. Baby afghan I made for Ashley's baby.JPG

Braxxi, your afghan is very pretty.

I finished the picture on the dog afghan I'm making last night. Ihave to finish the background color and I'm going to add some more rounds in the background color to make it bigger.

 YAY figured out pics!!

pictures 360.jpg

 

and now we can add text after the photo

 

This is not an actual baby blanket pattern, But I loved the flower on the bag on the front of the latest Crochet Today.

So found a less 3D square to go with it and viola!

 

Oh and I did an lighter color in the center, Dafodils are no longer all yellow either ,I've seen them with orange centers

I finished the first afghan of 2013 Thursday! I actually started it on November 12, 2012 - so I hope it counts - BUT it's done & My dad was happy with it. It wasn't as big as I had hoped, and I had to do the waves going side to side - instead of up & down or I'd have never had enough yarn to finish or it would have never gotten done!!

Here's a sneak peak of the RR I am doing for my brother & SIL's baby due on February 8th. I started this last Sunday - and am about 75% of the way done - 

 

It's done in RHSS Camo (Mirage) - 5 rows of that - then a row of RHSS Spring Green in between!!
