Quick and Quirky Q Hook Poncho Weekend

Well I broke my New Year's Resolution of not starting any new projects until I got the two afghans I have in the works finished. But I just couldn't resist this great pattern "Quick and Quirky Q Hook Poncho" at That Girl Crochet Blog. I made one last night while watching movies, and the other this morning. My daughter is modeling both ponchos :-) the orange one is mine and the purple one is hers.

The orange one was made using Patons Bohemian in Copper Chaos (single strand) and the purple one using Phentex Fashion Thirteen Chenille Purple (double stranded)

63 update

I have finally completed the last squares :-) Now just have to finish joining them all together. I have about 6 more squares and then I can start the border. It feels great to have it almost finished after working on it for about 5 years LOL. Now I just have to decide what I am going to do with it. I could keep it for myself, but one of my girlfriends' birthday is this week, and she just loved the squares and colors when I showed her. She keeps telling me how much she would love to have it. We will see !
Below are a few more dishcloths and have been doing to keep from being bored.

Spiderman Round Ripple DONE!

I finally finished this Spiderman Round Ripple for my nephew last night. I used RH WW yarn & a j-hook. Thank you to AngelCrafts for the pattern. It was really easy!
The afghan that I am working on now is from "40 Favorite Ripple Afghans", it's called Aztec Sun. I am using RH WW in Soft White & Monet. It is working up pretty quickly. The pattern in the book called for three colors, but I decided to use what I had on hand and not buy more yarn...... I really like the way it is turning out.

Finally, the holidays are over, and the kids are back to school. All of the company has returned to their own homes and I can get back to blogging & crocheting! :-)

I already have many projects in the works that I didn't finish before the end of the year. My New Year's Resolution is to complete the 63 square afghan that I just haven't been able to finish for the last 4 years (or 5.... I forget)

Here's a picture of my Grams with the Halfmoon Shawl (Red Heart Kooky Fuschia) that I made her for Christmas.

The giant granny below was a Christmas/Housewarming gift for a friend. Crochet with 2-strands of RH WW Cherry Chip & Brown.

I am still not finished with my Spiderman RR......... but hopefully this weekend. :-) Now over to Crochetville to catch up on everything..... I've been absent from posting for awhile :-(
