Being sick gave me plenty of down time to get some crocheting done. I'm feeling much better now, and it looks like its back to work tomorrow. I did manage to get my sixth panel done today though. This is one of those great patterns where you can pretty much feel your way through the easy stitching...making it easier to watch t.v. at the same time. Just a simple "v" stitch which is one of my favorites. I must admit, although this is my third time doing this pattern, I've always hated the border. Why didn't I do something slightly a little different before joining already? Slightly more, substantial? Well, I've still got plenty of yarn left and it's a quick pattern... maybe I'll make another. I'm not planning on keeping it anyways, but I do like how the different textures look together.

Fourth Panel Done

I had some time (while nursing a cold) to get some crocheting done today. I got the fourth panel done today. I haven't started on the 5th yet, instead I opted for a cat nap with Baloo on the couch. I may take a little break from the project for tonight...but knowing me, I probably will pick up the hook at some point this evening.

Stained Glass Window Afghan

Here it is, the work in progress. This will be the third time I've done this pattern. I'm straying from the pattern a bit and making wider and longer panels. I'm also using chocolate brown for the trim rather than black and using different types of yarns with different textures.

Just wanted to do another quick post. My digital camera is officially DEAD...I have no idea what happened to it, but I've accepted it and I'm going to move Wal-Mart and charge a new one. I'm eager to post updates here on my STAINED GLASS WINDOW AFGHAN that I'm making in an effort to use up some of my stash and scrap yarn. So, hopefully tonight there will be an update with photos. I'll check in later!

Happy New Year! Just a quick post while I'm at work. The holidays were very nice for me. Here's a photo of Journey and Joshua sporting the hat and scarf sets I made for them...I ended up making 7 sets for neices/nephews total in some really super soft yarn that I got from Hobby Lobby. I also made about 18 scarves for sale (I wished I'd made more) and sold all (11 @ $20 and the rest at $15). I'm still actually crocheting (even after Christmas)...and decided to try a scrap afghan and see how it does on Ebay....maybe a stained glass window blanket or something...not decided. Oh...and I also got the MICROSOFT ZUNE...for any of you who were curious about it, I think it's AWESOME! Especially for music lovers wo can spend some serious money on your money and get the ZUNE's perfect and "all you can eat" music for one monthly fee. And....(drum roll please)...I also got ENGAGED....that's right, William actually proposed on Christmas morning. Don't even ask me about "the date" it's still undecided and we're leaning towards just eloping.
