Ah, another week has passed and what have I accomplished:

1) My swap partner's poncho;/shawl is half completed. After a 75% frogging, it's well on it's way.

2) Yarn wound and everything is set for a shawl I am making for my SIL. I am using the Lion Suede shawl pattern.

3) Thread, yes I did say threas, purchased and pattern out for the flower I have to make to cover the fray in my jeans that are only two months old (errrrrrr) from Old Navy.

4) Two scraves I am making for gifts with eyelash yarn and regular yarn.

<span style="font-family:comic sans ms; color:purple;">

I'm working on:

A secret project for someone I love. It should be finished in a day or two.

My 63 squares. I've got four finished and the fifth is almost completed. (This is going to take awhile!)

I want to start some kitchen goodies from a booklet Hammie leant to me.

I really want to start a crocheted edging for the new curtains I just made for my bedroom. I've been looking at patterns and think I'll do that in the evenings.</span>

My WIPs are:

1) My college classes - I look at my crochet and want to cry because I've had to dedicate so much time to my studies. I know it's worth it, but I ache to be able to pick my work up again.

2) The double wedding rings afghan for SIL's wedding gift - I'm only about 1/12 of the way through it, as I haven't really worked on it since we got home from the bridal shower.

3) I have two pairs of knitting needles hanging around here somewhere with "I don't know what the heck they are, I'm just practicing and learning" projects on them. I've mastered the art of casting on stitches:danc

I want to get a start on the 63 Squares CAL - but I haven't even started on a single one, so I guess it doesn't count.

I don't know how many WIPs I have but I got tired of them cluttering up my den so I gathered them up and put them in a large plastic bag in my bedroom.
Most of them are almost finished lapgahns or baby afghans. They are unfinished 'cause I did not like the way they were turning out. I'll go back and finish them after I finish my current list of "wants" by my family. :)

Then I will have several WIPs finished quickly. :)

I'm posting early since I plan on being in bed by a decent hour and being more productive tomorrow as my house looks like 3 kids under 5 have been running wild and free (oh wait they have...)

1. Chelle's Lacy poncho (for Tahra)
2. Eddie's rippleghan (still)
3. Roberts "SURPRISE" (still)

I've been a bad momma and have caught poncho fever, so I don't have any progress on my other 2 wip's :P

This was such a productive crochet week!!

I finished both scarves for my daughter's teachers Valentine's day gifts.

I finished a scraf for my mother

I finished my swap partners poncho/shawl and shipped it

I am 80% done the "suede" shawl for my SIL

15% done my husbands scarf for Valentine's day (I think the 15% is being generous)

It feel so good to post this week!!

Since last week I have finished the two ponchos I was working on, and the scarf(s) for my sons' teachers. (He has two teachers). This week I am still working on the :

-- Rectangle grannyghan for FIL (Is about three feet long so far?)
-- Poncho for me got put on back burner til I get yarn I haven't even ordered yet, didn't have colors I need at LYS (JoAnns'):)
--Started a new scarf for oldest son two days ago.
--Am going to "try" to work on plastic bag crochet tote, for my mom to collect shells in Florida.It's been almost half way done since last summer, it kills my wrists/hands to crochet with that stuff, though... And I hate cutting out all the plastic bags, but my mom REALLY wants it, so....:U
--Want to start a "star" baby afghan for friend I just found out is pregnant, but isn't officially a WIP, I guess...

That's all for me. :yawn Tina
