First of all, Happy New Year to all!  May you enjoy many blessings throughout 2013.

I finally get to share some things with you.  Woohoo!  So much of what I’d been making couldn’t be shared until after we had our Christmas.  And that got postponed until the 30th since Lawson decided to come on the 24th. So, without further ado, here are some of the things I worked on during the last few months.

First up is this afghan I made for my son. I joined the Sarafia squares CAL, but couldn’t post my progress since I didn’t want the wrong person to see it! I am truly irritated at how “ruffly” the edging turned out. (I didn’t follow a pattern, just did my own thing.) Not sure why it did that, as I took care to make sure I wasn’t getting too many stitches around the edge.  Perhaps once it is washed and dried, it won’t look so ruffly. I can only hope!  The color of the yarn isn’t showing up properly in these pictures.  I’d say it’s somewhere between the two…not as light, but not as dark.  LOL



Here are the towels that I made for various people on my Christmas list.






Crochet edged washcloths…one for Clayton and one for Adelyn.



I haven’t given this to anybody yet, but I’m thinking if it fits Adelyn’s head, it will be hers. I was just tinkering around when I made it.  I love the vibrant colors!


This sweater set and blankie are Lawson’s.


Water bottle holder for my brother-in-law.


A variety of potholders.  They haven’t all found homes yet, but they will eventually.

A Santa hat for Lawson.


I made a few other things, also, that I apparently didn’t take pictures of.  Perhaps I’ll get pics of the items as time goes by, but if not…well, this post gives you an idea of some of the things I’ve been keeping busy with. Thanks for looking, and again, Happy New Year!
