Lacy baby ghan

 My most recent finish! I thoroughly enjoyed making this little afghan. I used Caron Simply Soft pink yarn. I will most definitely do another like this at some point.

The pillow is coming along well. It ended up being much bigger than the pattern stated. However, it helps if you check gauge (which I hate doing!). I forget that I need to use a smaller hook! The pillow form was 21X21 and fits perfectly. I did not finish this before the pineapple afghan was given to the recipient they were both supposed to go for. However, it is a wedding present and I still have time. I just have to finish a tiny bit and it will be done.

Hats for Charity

I made these hats for a charity. This is the first time I have made hats and I had so much fun I couldn't stop! I just kept going and going... just like the Energizer batteries!

I also learned a new stitch. The reverse single crochet! I have always been afraid of that stitch for some reason. I found myself fascinated with it and wanting to keep doing the stitch. I will definitely do more with the reverse single crochet.

Pelican Pillow

I am making this pillow to go with the Pineapple Afghan. It is relatively easy, with just single crochet and changing colors according to a graph. My only problem I struggle with is hiding the threads without making it look weird and without them coming out and then the whole thing coming apart.
