BEFORE AND AFTER

BEFORE


HOOKS THAT CAME WITH IT

AFTER

OLD HOOK CASE

MY HOOKS IN THEIR NEW HOME

A FRIEND FOUND THIS AT A LIVING ESTATE SALE AND THOUGHT OF ME. A FEW WEEKS AGO I LOST ALL OF MY HOOKS AND CRIED FOR SEVERAL HOURS WHILE I LOOKED FOR THEM. SHE TOLD ME I SHOULD BE ABLE TO KEEP UP WITH THEM NOW. THANK YOU SO MUCH NANCY! LOVE YOU!
I'LL KEEP MY OLD CASE TO USE WHEN I TRAVEL.

WHEELCHAIR LAPGHAN

I'M NOT SURE WHERE THIS LITTLE LAPGHAN WILL BE GOING. I NAMED IT PINE TREES AND AUTUMN LEAVES.
I'M NOT SURE WHAT I'M GOING TO DO WITH THE PUMPKIN EITHER. I JUST KNOW IT WILL BE COOKED.

FOR YOU ROSIE

UPDATE 10-23-12
SIZE I HOOK    WW YARN
FOR THIS LAPGHAN I CHAINED 116. THEN I WORKED A DC IN THE 3RD CHAIN FROM THE HOOK AND IN EACH CHAIN ACROSS. CHANGE COLOR CHAIN 2 AND TURN.

ROW 2: DC IN EACH CHAIN ACROSS. CHANGE COLOR. CH 2 AND TURN.

I USED HUNTER GREEN FOR MY MAIN COLOR AND USED  A DIFFERENT COLOR EACH TIME OF LEFT OVER BALLS OF YARN I WAS TRYING TO USE UP.

WHEN CHANGING COLORS IN DC LEAVE THE LAST TWO LOOPS OF YARN ON YOUR HOOK THEN YARN OVER WITH NEW YARN AND PULL LAST TWO LOOPS OFF. THEN CROCHET OVER ENDS AS YOU CROCHET.

WHEN I GOT TO SIZE I WANTED I SC AROUND ALL OFF THE AFGHAN AND SL ST TO FIRST SC.
I LEFT THIS ONE WITH A SIMPLE EDGING BECAUSE IT MAY GO TO A MAN.
YOU CAN ADD MORE CHAINS AT THE BEGINNING TO MAKE IT BIGGER AND ADD MORE ROWS. YOU CAN CHANGE THE HOOK SIZE TO MAKE IT A DIFFERENT SIZE. THIS PATTERN IS VERY FORGIVING SO YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WANT.
GOOD LUCK!

THIS IS A SIMPLE PATTERN AND I'M SURE I'M NOT THE FIRST TO DO THIS. IT'S JUST SOMETHING I CAME UP WITH FOR CHARITY BECAUSE IT'S SIMPLE AND QUICK. YOU CAN CHANGE THE COLORS AROUND AND MAKE IT LOOK DIFFERENT EVERY TIME.

WHAT TO DO?


I WASN'T THINKING WHEN I CUT OUT THESE LITTLE 12X12 BURIAL WRAPS. I'M NOT SURE THE NITE TIME BEARS IS APPROPRIATE OR NOT. SO I ONLY MADE THE ONE.
I DID CUT OUT SOME BIBS USING THIS MATERIAL FOR MCK AND I THINK I'LL CUT OUT SOME BURP CLOTHS AS WELL. THIS MATERIAL WAS DONATED TO ME BY AUNT JANELL, I LOVE HER SO MUCH.

IT'S BEEN AWHILE SINCE I'VE POSTED ON MY BLOG. I  LET LIFE GET IN THE WAY I GUESS. I WANT TO TRY AND POST PICTURES OF LAST YEAR AND THIS YEAR PROJECTS IF I CAN FIGURE THEM OUT.
