Here they are. First, the start of one of my daughters' Easter dresses:
I'm planning on a dress for each girl and a vest (orange, by request) for my son, for Easter.
Next, a hat for my husband, inspired by a very bad haircut that I gave him:
The haircut already looks okay and the hat isn't even done yet. I'm making it using self-striping sock yarn though, and I like how it's turning out.
Next is a hibernating project (i.e., I have no idea when or even if I will finish it; I'm not currently working on it), the beginning of an intarsia blanket. The part you see in the picture is the bottom of a crescent moon:
Next is the beginning of a rug, crocheted with a large Q hook:
It's waiting for the next stained t-shirt, since it's made out of scrap jersey fabric. I'll work on it as I have material.
This next is one of my favorites, a log-cabin scrapghan:
This is made with small balls of yarn left over from other projects. It took me awhile to figure out how to use the scraps so that they look pretty and not chaotic, but once I started thinking about patchwork quilts - those triumphs of frugality and beauty - my path became clear.
Once the balls of yarn are too small to even be used on the logcabin scrapghan, they go to this scrapghan, a simple ripple blanket:
Spacing the scraps with white seems to give them enough order that the variety of colors looks cheery instead of messy.
Any bits too small even for that go to Bess so that she can make embroidered pictures on plastic canvas. Waste not, want not.
This is a Boteh scarf, destined for a friend this Christmas. I love the geometric feel of the shapes curving towards each other:
Next is my first lace project, a starry scarf from Crochet So Fine. Crochet is really lace-making at its heart, so I wanted to try a project that embraced that:
It looks all furry and squiggly now, but it'll have sharp points and definition after it's blocked and pressed.
Finally, one more work-in-hibernation, more intarsia, this time a Celtic knot:
I hope to finish this one at some point, but I'm not working on it now. Intarsia takes so much picky concentration, and all that single-crochet, ugh! But I do like the results.
Next time, I'm posting a finished object. I really do have one! Promise! :) But, I'm curious, am I the only one that has more than one craft project going at a time? And, if you do have more than one craft project going at a time, do you also read more than one book at a time? I'm curious if there's any correlation.
Peace of Christ to you,
