Here is another picture of the Tweed stripes.
This blanket was made for a friend of mine. She was expecting a boy (obviously)! I made it with Bernat Baby Coordinates. I absolutely LOVE this yarn! It is soooo soft to work with. And after you wash it, it is even softer. I originally bought the blue, green and white for this blanket, then I ended up buying one each of pink, orange, yellow and purple. I didn't care that I didn't have a pattern.

I ended up making another blanket, about double the size of the one above. I used all the colors to make a rainbow effect. I gave it to the daughter of one of my co-workers. She said her daughter won't sleep without it now.

This coaster was for Tara. She wanted maroon. Had some extra.
This one was for Sharon. She wanted something in blue. Since I have plenty of Sugar 'n' Cream, I was able to whip it up quickly. I was planning on making a matching one, but never got around to it.
This one I did for a girl I worked with who just recently turned 21. She loves bright colors.
I managed to finally get some photos to show a couple small projects I did. I was on a coaster kick for awhile and made a few for some friends. I had done each of them in different colors depending on who wanted what colors. I also felt that these colors reflected the people I made them for. Like this one I made for a girl I worked with. She is very girly and also has four girls! I also tried to do an edging different for each coaster. I still have many patterns I want to try. I would much rather make my coasters than buy them.

So, this is not my first blog. I had a couple of others that I decided to combine. Most of these first posts will be backdated. Only because I brought what I have done over to this blog. Here goes.....

I have been crocheting since my daughter was about 5 (OMG she will be 13 soon!!!!). Right about the time I decided I didn't want to lead the Girl Scout troop she was in at the time. I had bought some yarn for a project we were doing and had a lot left over. I saved it for awhile, then decided that I wanted to learn to do something with it. Since then I have made I don't know how many hats, afghans and baby blankets. I am still having fun and find it is really cool to learn new stitches and techniques when I start a new pattern/design. As I continue this journal, I hope to add my finished projects. And hopefully everyone can enjoy them!
