Knitting Projects, Cocktail Napkins

Hard to see the squares behind the yarn, but making progress.  Was laying out next possible color combinations for my current project.  An afghan of many colors.  
Using the corner to corner method and changing color half way through.  This group with have the yellowish orange as the dominate color in this square.
Fun cocktail napkins.  I'm always in search of new ones.  Anytime I serve cocktails they are a source of conversation.  Sometimes it's just hubby and I, but sometimes it includes friends.  I have one friend that we typically see when we vacation at the various Marriott Time Shares who always takes pictures of my napkins and often takes hers with her.  

**edited title which included audio books.  Had this scheduled to post with the intention of adding to the post and never got that done...so next post will include updated projects with some info regarding an audio book I've listened to.

  1. I forgot about cocktail napkins. I recall my parents going out for dinner and having a cocktail. And they usually had a funny napkin served with cocktail.

  10. That's going to be a colourful afghan, I can't wait to see it as it grows. I haven't seen napkins like those before, I can see how they'd be a talking point.

  14. Love the bright colours of your project. It is going to be quite eye-catchingly beautiful.

    My mom used to have cocktail napkins and I can remember some of them being quite ornate.

    God bless.

    1. Even our local grocery store carriers them. I often purchased them at small boutique shops. Most parties I've been to throughout the years have used them, so people don't sit a glass directly on furniture.

  17. I can't believe I'm so far behind on reading the posts. I got out of the habit after the surgery as I had to use my left hand to navigate. Or I've just been lazy. LOL I love those napkins. Very cute. And of course your afghan. It's so nice you can do both knit and crochet!
