Hello, friends! I haven't forgotten you, and I've been knitting up a storm (except for the last few days.) I can't wait to share, but i can't quite yet. I've been working long hours and my wrists are hurting. A lot. It hurts to write, it hurts to type, and I can't even think about knitting- which is driving me crazy! I will try to get a more in depth post up this weekend, but for now, happy crafting!

WIP Wednesday 6/13/12

Still plugging away at the scarf, not too much to say right now.

Not sure why my blanket shows up orange in the picture... it's definitely a bright, crayon red. That's ok though, I think it looks cooler (and less clash-y) as an orange blanket. The yarn isn't too far off the color shown though.

This pattern (the ABABA scarf from Ravelry) is wonderful for where my head is right now. It's got a little bit of interest, it's not too complicated, and the best thing- I'm more than halfway through it and haven't felt the urge to put it away and cast on something new yet!

Hope you all are doing well, happy crafting!

FO Friday! My mom's hood.

Look! I do finish things once in awhile!

My mom and my little sister came in for a visit today, along with my sister's friend C who lives with the family. Yesterday evening I finally realized this was the week, so I figured I should probably finish sewing up my mom's hood. The crocheting has been done for ages, it just need sewn up and the ends woven in. I think I need to practice sewing more- my stitches usually end up pretty even and fairly invisible, but it's so agonizing. I think if I get more practice in I might get to a point where I can do it more quickly and easily. And not whine about it the entire time. Maybe? I hope. It'll probably look prettier too.

Here is my mom's hood, modeled by my younger sister-

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
