a baby afghan and 3 hats for chemo patients. I have been diagnosed with cancer, so decided to start making hats for chemo patients at my dr. office. I have made myself a goal of 50 hats by the end of the year. I am on hat #5... I would appreciate your prayers.

loom knitted hats

Wednesday, November 5, 2014

I had finish-itis this week. Finished up a baby ghan. Pattern from God's Tiny Angels, called Twin Stitch afghan. I love this pattern. So easy to do... Also finished up another pair of socks...the color looks like the leaves of autumn here in Michigan

I haven't accomplished a lot this month, though I do have lots of projects started. Sweater pattern from Just Crochet, I think it is a free pattern. I used worsted weight yarn #4, instead of #3, and it took about 6-7 ounces of the aqua, and don't know on the white, as it was leftover white from a different project. The aqua was an 8 ounce skein, and I had probably 1 to 2 ounces left, can't tell for sure... The 2 scarves were from a pattern called Pumpkins on a fence, from I think Fiber Flux. When I printed out the pattern it didn't get all the directions for the decorative, so mine looks different than the pattern, but I still like it My red socks, made on 56 stitches from the 56 stitch sock pattern from Stitches of Violet. An afghan for my precious hubby. Double strands of worsted weight #4 yarn held together and an N hook...just an ordinary ripple pattern... I have 2 baby afghans started, another large size afghan half finished from last year, and numerous socks started...too many to count. I love to see how a pattern is going to look on new projects, then I get bored with them. I do usually finished them though, it may take a while, like a year or I also have made 4 loom knitted hats, but didn't get pics of them yet. Hope you enjoyed your October.
