I'm Late to the Party
Hi all, it's early Monday morning thought I'd try to get this posted before heading to work. Missed getting the post up for YOP yesterday. Hope spring has finally come for most of you. I have daffodils blooming which has me very excited. And you can see Flat Stanley is also quite excited and wanted to get right out there and smell the flowers. Some of you may know I have a Flat Stanley blog, and it's in the April A-Z Challenge. There's tons of stuff there, so am inviting you all to have a look see. Everyone learns with Flat Stanley. Any of you parents, grandparents, teachers....would love you to get your young ones involved. (ok end of my commercial)
I finished Iris and Lillies, and posted the final picture for Finished Object Friday. Click or scroll back to see the finished afghan which is another that will be heading to Homeless Families Foundation through my charity, Bridge and Beyond.
My Afghan Goals:
To complete 12 afghans:
10 from donated squares (9 down and 1 to go)
1.. Summers End
3. My Granny
4. Christmas Time
5. Buckeye Blitz
6. Box of Crayons
8. Desert Rose
9. Iris and Lillies
Complete Candy Corn Afghan (longest work in progress project EVER)just don't know if I'm gonna pull it out of hibernation or not...sigh
Finish the Feather and Fan Afghan (knitted), that finally has a name, Sea and Sand
**Sea and Sand in the works haven't worked on this in a couple of weeks
The goal accomplished last year, learn to cable. I want to make a skirt for myself using this new skill. Need to re-find the pattern for starters.
Changed to The cabled scarf DONE
I want to make time for working on items other than the above afghans. I kept so busy with those last year, many other wanted projects didn't happen.
Cast on....I know there are other methods beyond the traditional one I always use. I get all tangled up when I try to do the thumb one and so ....do it old school...the long slow way. Would like to learn another faster cast on. No headway
I have a knitting machine, haven't used it in over a year. In fact removed it from my office in order to make room for my antique Treddle Singer Sewing Machine. Would like to set up a space in the basement and use it some again for accomplish quick things for charity, No Headway. Bridge and Beyond.
Need to block a blue scarf I knitted AND cable scarf mentioned above
Want to try the above mentioned cable skirt
Misc whatever items for DD (perhaps the jewel tone traveling scarf now in the works) and family, made scarf intended for DD, but ..colors didn't come out the way I hoped. (that was the above cable scarf, and she tells me she really doesn't need another, yet. So perhaps it will be donated. Project turned into a Green Sweater which is in the works.
perhaps even some washcloths for myself....in the works
So, in the works is the a washcloth for myself, the green sweater for DD, Sea and Sand Afghan
**No Headway...cast on, knitting machine, Candy Corn Ghan
