Learn to knit afghan

Over on Crochetville some of us in the Sky Cal are doing a KAL (knit-a-long). We are using Barbara G. Walker's "Learn to Knit afghan book". It is fun making squares along with some others and seeing everyone's colours and squares. We are also keeping track of everyone's progress on a blog. Here are my first 6 squares for the LTKA. I can never seem to get my photos to load in the order I want them, but these are the first six squares in the book.

99 Granny squares to crochet

Over on Crochetville in the Sky Cal, some of us are doing a CAL using the "99 Granny Squares to crochet" book. Each week one person will choose which square and another will choose how many, neither person knows who the other person is. We are into our 3rd week and are having fun watching it come together. Week one was 4 of square 44, week two was 3 of square 34 and week 3, we did 5 of square 5. lol Strange coincidences, right? lol Well, here are the pictures from the first three.

Another update

The white, yellow and green blanket is a diagonal pattern from here. I followed the advice of a friend and used three colours, that way you can carry the yarn not in use up the side and not have a lot of ends to weave in. It was a quick and easy blanket to make. The green bolero is 6 months size made from "Sirdar 1763". The pink and green poncho sweater and beret was made for a Secret Santa swap I did in December. I was showing them to family members and my nephew wanted to try it on. lol. He is cute and loves modelling things, even if it was for a girl.

New year, some things

There should be a little blushing smiley to put up here. I have been making things and taking photos, I will upload them in bits so I don't overload one post.

Here are some of the latest pictures.

The pink/yellow/blue is a BSJ made with some yarn a friend sent me from Australia, I love the yarn. The denim coloured sweater is a double breasted jacket from pattern "Sirdar 1754". The white with flecks is a Shifio pattern, really easy and quick pattern to crochet. And the flannel receiving blanket that I crocheted an edge onto. It was easier than I expected to crochet onto flannel, I will be making more. Well, I have to do something with all the meters of flannel I have. :)
