More swappin'

I received my 12" square from Betty (Yahoo! Swappin_Squares)

Thank you Betty! I am hoping to eventually make my daughter an afghan using 12" squares in shades of pink and purple from my swaps. This is the first one I have received, isn't it great? :-)

These are the two scarves I made for my Crochetville Scarf Swap Partner :-)

and these are the scarves I received from my swap partner (thanks again afswife!)

This is the contents from the packages that my Crochetville Secret Pal has sent me so far. Isn't this stuff great! My nephew fell in love with the cat :-)

Candy Apple Shrug Pictures

So I can FINALLY posts pictures :-) Here is the shrug with my daughter modeling. This is a free pattern from the Lion Brand website.

Pink Multi Round Ripple

Well, another christmas present down!! YAY! I used Mainstays worsted weight in Pink Multi and a K hook. It's 66 inches from point to point. A good "drag around" size for a kid :-) I finished this in a couple of nights. I finally used up most of this I had laying around, I have just enough to do a motif or two for my Motif Scrapghan that I have been working on. I bought myself the Stitch n Bitch Crochet Happy Hooker book, so I think I will look through that and see if anything inspires me. I am also going to attempt making a shawl using the Delta Crochet technique. I will let you know how that is going as soon as I find the right yarn.

Crochet Candy Apple Shrug

I finally finished the shrug I have been working on for my daughter. I was actually a very easy pattern, other stuff just kept getting in the way.

There will be a slight delay in posting pictures of this........ I keep getting error messages.

You can also check out the Candy Apple Shrug CAL and the Clothing Show and Tell on Crochetville in the meantime.

Sorry :-(
