Hey, Look! I Finished Something!

Pattern: Susan B's Easy Ripple Afghan
Yarn: random scraps of ack-crylic
Hook: US size I
Finished size: 36" square

This is a large "snuggle" (blanket for a homeless animal) for the Snuggles Project. I plan to drop it off at a local no-kill animal rescue organization.

Aaaah . . . it feels good to actually finish something.

Time for a Roll Call

Not much knitting going on here . . . It's been a little knitting, a lot of frogging, and not much motivation to sit and work on much of anything. Blah.

On the needles:

These socks (yep, still)
Forest Canopy (I completed the set-up rows and then didn't feel like working on it anymore)
Plain vanilla mittens for a friend of my mother (frogged twice and currently stewing in my knitting box)

Pretty pathetic, eh?

On the bright side, I have completed quite a bit of crocheting for my Etsy shop and the Hop Scotch Store. I guess I'm just feeling the crochet right now.

A Good Mail Day!

I got my Sockapalooza package in the mail today. Look what my pal made me!

And a closeup of the lovely yarn:

In addition to these wonderful socks, she sent some beaded stitch markers and some hand cream and foot care goodies. I'm a happy, happy girl. Thank you so much, Natalie. I love it all!
