Project Progress

Here are some photos of the projects I am currently working on as stated in a previous post.

Hats to help sis out at Metro. I don't know how many I will make but hope to make a goodly number of them before 2011 arrives. This will be an ongoing project. At this point in time I have made three, I took the photo before finishing the third one. These two were made with Red Heart Strata yarn and an "I" hook.

I am working on the Catty Corner Afghan and you can see it by clicking on the link in my side bar. This is a project sis and I chose to work on together year, and I have been anxiously awaiting starting this. After making just this one square and a five other yellow centers, I have decided that this project is ZERO Fun! I may be abandoning the idea of an afghan and just go with a purse on this one. Just too fussy for me. I did make this square using an "H" hook, Mary Maxim Starlet yarn in several colors. It is a lightweight yarn and I love working with it but you do have to be careful of gauge if your making a wearable. Items come out small. This square is about 2 and a half inches square.

And my French Knitting project which is nothing more than making one of those long chains on a spool that we all made as children. Not sure what I will do with this yet but I feel a rug coming on. This too will be a year long project. I am using Red Heart Strata once again. This time in the color called crayon. I have progressed further than this photo also. I have at the time of this writing three colors showing at the bottom.

Another, and final project for right now is, the magic ball project. I want to make my nephew 'Giz' a cat pad of his own. So I am going to crochet what I have right now and wait till I have more balls. Jade loved hers and I think he needs one too. As you can see in the photo I gave no consideration to type of yarn I added to the balls. This will give item a lot more texture. As you can see I only have three magic balls to work with so it may take some time to complete this project also. I am sure after this years crochet there will be more than enough to complete it. This second photos shows the chain I am making. Then I will take the chain after balling it and turn it into a pet pad by crocheting the chain. Still leaving all the tails hang out wherever.

I have not worked on the Calendar Afghan at this point. But it is waiting. Now, my least favorite so far is the Catty Corner Afghan. Not sure where I will go with this one. My favorite so far is the French Knitting. It is so relaxing and takes no brain power. Hope you are enjoying your projects.

Ghost, OUT!
