My hook's on FIRE!!!!!!
I've been super busy the past couple of days just crocheting away!!!

I'm at my parent's house right now without my camera but I will post pics soon, I promise!! Here is what I have done:

1. Another one skein scarf--this time in a bright multicolored sugar and creme cotton yarn...yummy!

2. 4 washcloths for my niece who will be arriving any day now!!!!

3. Several more rows done on the knitted baby sweater...I'm up to the sleeves on the back side now, only 2 more inches to go and I'll be rolling over to the front!

4. I got the las of the hexagons done for the mother's day blanket and have them joined and started on the ripple part...I'm hoping now that I am at that point it will start going faster!!

I also managed to spark my sister's interest in crocheting again and taught her how to make a granny square. I am giving lessons to my mom tomorrow morning and then lessons to my roomie tomorrow night probably. Muahahahaha!!! I have hooked some more!!

New Layout
What do you think?
I have a problem!
Ok seriously what is wrong with me?????
I started ANOTHER new project today. For real. I'm such a freak.

Haha. :-p

I dusted off my knitting needles and began a baby sweater in lilac TLC. The good news is that I am using yarn from my stash!! It's my first knitted wearable. It's wierd because I've been "knitting" for about 3 years and still haven't pushed myself past beginner stages. Yet I've only recently rediscovered crocheting, about 6 months ago, and have long surpassed the "beginner" level. I attribute that to my friends at Crochetville. In fact, it was one of the girls over there (Hi Jessica!) that is encouraging me to do this sweater!! It's her pattern and she was nice enough to share.

Right now its just sort of a rectangle but once it starts taking some shape I promise to post pictures.

Just gotta get through this exam tomorrow morning...then it's a crafting marathon!! Yipee!!!!!
I started and finished this last night for a friend who lost her father. The memorial service is tomorrow and I thought this color was just beautiful. The pattern is "One Skein Scarf" from the Stitch and Bitch: Happy Hooker crochet book. The yarn is Caron Simply Soft in Raspberry, and I used about a half of a skein. This only took me about 2.5 hours to complete!! I can tell I'll be making more of these for Christmas!!
