LTKA catchup

Almost caught up with the LTKA squares. After this it will be weeks between updates.


I have started making raglan sweaters to put into my Folksy shop and here are pictures of the 3 I have finished lately.

Not a log cabin

A few weeks ago some of us in my favourite Cal on Crochetville decided to start a knit log cabin. I decided I was going to try to crochet one out of saltines. Well, it came out nothing like a log cabin pattern. ;) So here is my blue cuddle quilt, with no name.

I have fallen behind on the LTKA, oops. I am trying to catch up with the group and think I am now 5 squares behind. I have caught up with the other group projects (apart from BL squares, but that is a story for another time), so hopefully over the next couple of Sundays I should be able to get all caught up with the LTKA. So here are pictures of the next 6 squares.

Hats galore

In May we had a "Finishing Month" as our project for the month in the Sky Cal on Crochetville. One of the projects I decided to work on and finish was the Chapeau ghan I started in January (I think). I used scrap yarn for the hat parts and black for the borders. I like how the afghan turned out, I am thinking I might make another one, with the hats in pinks and purples and the borders in a different shade of pink. What do you think?

New crafts


January I started a needlecraft class and we have been doing different things. One thing I have finished is making a fabric covered box. It seemed complicated, but once we started, it was easy. The most difficult being to make sure that the edges were straight so that everything could be fitted together. I painted the fabric, too. Well, here is the finished box, made for DD's 12th birthday.
