Fancy, Fancy

Tonight I have been in a creative mood and you can see the results.  New pretty purple banner and matching avatar.  A new avatar was certainly long past due.  You can also see the new images on my ArtFire studio. I'm in the process of trying to upload the new avatar to my Facebook business page, but it keeps timing out and refusing to upload so right now it's an ugly question mark until I can get it to work.  Maybe tomorrow it will be more cooperative.

Around and Around

I love making crocheted items of all sorts in a round.  Besides hats probably what I make most often in a round is baby blankets.  I'm currently working on a pretty, pink, granny square blanket for a coworker of mine who's first child (a girl) is due in July.  When working in a round at the beginning it seems like you're making progress so fast because the rounds are shorter.  However, tonight I've gotten to the place where it seems to be taking forever to get around this last round and I know I still have a few more to go.  I think maybe it's time to put this project away for tonight.

Last week I finished a blue baby blanket for a different coworker. If you'd like to see a picture I took of it with my phone please check out my facebook page.  Soon I'll be listing it on ArtFire with better pictures as a custom order piece.

Lazy Sunday

It's official.  Both of my best friends at work are having babies this summer.  One is having a baby boy at the beginning of May and the other is having a girl at the end of July.  Do you know what this means?  This means that I've got to get busy crocheting baby blankets this spring.  Right now I'm working on an adorable blue blanket with a puff half shell looking pattern.  Well, I'll be sure to take pictures and put them up here when I'm done, and I'm sure it will make for a better descriptive picture.
