I have finished my first cuddle ghan (I still have 2 more bus ones to do and a few other little ones). It is the bus I have been reporting progress on for a few weeks now. I haven't done much more than that as I moved this week as well. I have added a few more things to my WIM list, just not sure if I will get around to doing everything before Christmas :(.

Some progress

I have become addicted to crocheting little squares for quiltghans!!!! I have worked on my Bus Ghan most of the week, but looking at the picture it doesn't look like I have done much. I can't wait to start on some of the other projects I want to make as christmas presents. I have the colours and yarn all sorted for them, they have been staring at me since Sunday. And the addiction is contagious. My mom started making a quiltghan for herself, and has now bought the yarn and started making one for my daughter as well, in the process using the design that I found for my cousin and was considering making for my daughter!! Anyway, I decided (almost) that I would be making the Love letters one for her from Happy Yellow House website.

I went to the market today to get yarn for a cardigan I am going to knit for a friend and I was good, mostly. I only ended up buying two extra balls of wool from a charity shop, a bargain at 50p each, now I just need to decide what to make with it.

Well, the pictures are the progress of my Bus Ghan, the yarn and pattern of the cardigan I am going to start (if I can tear myself away from Crochetville) and the yarn from the charity shop.

Some sort of normality

We finally got back from visiting my cousin and school has started. I haven't done as much as I would have liked over the last two weeks, but here is some of the progress I have made. I finished the baby shawl that is a gift for somebody, it is in pale blue and I have left the ribbons out as it is for a boy. I have made 4 hats for my sister, 2 brown, 1 grey and one multicoloured (she wanted it made from leftovers, so that is kind of what she got). The other project I am working on is a cuddle afghan, I am hoping to get a few done as christmas presents for all the younger children in my family. The picture shows the progress on the School Bus cuddle for one of the boys.
