|One down and one to go...|
I liked this crochet fingerless mitten pattern so much I decided to make another pair in red.
One mitten done and one to go.
|Two more wonderful crochet books for my library!|
I like both of these crochet books.
201 crochet motifs, blocks, projects and ideas by Melody Griffiths. Ms. Griffiths includes stitch diagrams which I like to have just in case I have trouble with the written instructions.
200 Crochet blocks for blankets, throws and afghans by Jan Eaton. This book just arrived in the mail today. There are no stitch diagrams but the photos are great.
One of the pluses of this book is that Ms. Eaton show how to mix and match the squares. My eye was immediately drawn to the "Happy Holidays" mix and match squares.
Square Number 27 is called "Snowy Stripes" and uses a "spike" stitch. I've always wanted to try this stitch.
It's a beautiful day here...sunny this morning...high is 43 degrees F. now. I should go out and take down the outside Christmas decorations and lights.
I should...but I won't.
I'm enjoying them too much.
All the Christmas decorations are down inside our home but one thin Christmas tree in our family room. Unfortunately it's not all put away yet...everything is in piles in our finished media room in our basement. Hopefully I can start to pack it all away this weekend...maybe with the help of my hubby who is an expert "packer".
|Last Christmas we went to the clear plastic bins (large) for storing the Christmas stuff. |
I like them because I can see what is in the bin without opening it.
|At least I left one cleared off chair for hubby to sit in!|
|Ornaments from our Living Room Christmas tree|
In the meantime it's more fun to daydream about crochet projects...
