Here is what I have going on. (well some of the unfinished stuff)
My married daughter, Kerry, loves hanging kitchen towels. I am trying to hit all the holidays for her. What makes these special is they actually have the buttons on them!! I have lots finished with no buttons (mostly christmas ones)
Kohls had a great sale so each towel was about $1.50
This next is one of my favorite patterns. The back is the front. It has the coolest ripples - pictures won't do it justice.
I've made a few of these. I stopped this one when the cotton yarn I ordered came - about three years ago now. I have one put away in this pattern - it's a lovely soft pink cotton baby chill chaser -- now all I need is the granddaughter!!
Ok, now here is the sampler that I can't remember what year I started and stopped. It was either 1998, when I first found this pattern - or maybe around 2001. Got me. I did this first as a wall hanging in number 10 crochet string and a tiny hook. My sister has it - which means I'll never see it again as her kids are quite greedy. I can't give her things anymore. Her kids inheritance is beefy enough - they get most of my mother treasures... well, that's another story.
Right now it is about 4 foot square and I had decided I wanted it atleast 5' square and I ran out of pattern. I have to go it alone. I recounted last night - each side has 208 stitches - design time!! Or maybe not.... I have so many undone things.
There is a baby blanket half finished that's probably too big. It's a funny pattern to. It's made from corner to corner - Increasing until you have big triangle and decreasing until it becomes a rectangle. The problem with it is - it's more like a junior bed afghan. I can't decide whether to finish it or not. No baby could drag it around!
Lynne, I look forward to seeing your afghan unfold. I also look forward to this evening when we can all settle in and crochet a bit.
Well, thanks for your time. As you can see, my problem is my start has poor finishes!
