I don't know what to do now!!
Okay, I've posted before about all my WIPs. I've finished a sweater I started last week for my dd or for my niece (they're both getting matching cardigans from "Simple Crochet for Cherished Babies"--it's the V-stitch hoodie that's toward the back of the book) to match the matching dresses I bought for each of them at Wally-World (even though both babies have opposite complexions [dd fair, dn darker], the colors in the dresses look good on both! Yay!! *happy dance*). I need to finish the sleeves, hood, and trim on the second sweater. I also started a CAL at Crochetville with the Skipping Stones Circular Afghan by Priscilla Hewitt. The plan is to make two of these--one for my FIL, the other for my dd. So far, the one for my FIL is coming along beautifully!! His is being made in Mainstays (a brand formerly carried by Wally-World [THUD]) Autumn Red. The one I want to make for my dd is going to be in purples, greens, and blues from an old UFO I started four years ago that I've decided to frog. I also have another WIP that is a ripple afghan for a friend. He picked a bright neon green Rainbow Boucle from JoAnn's, Etc., and even though the coloring is 'interesting', to say the least, the afghan is turning out quite well--better than I expected, actually. Then, there's also the Anona Christening Dress I'm designing. *sigh* I'm taking a break from it for the moment, because I need to finish dd's dedication dress I started months ago, took a break from, and is only half-way finished! *puts hands up to head, shakes head* I have so many things going on, I don't know what to finish first! I do have to admit, though, that the circular afghan being worked with two strands has been a nice change for me. Going from size 10 thread to double worsted has been fun. It's not as much of a strain on the eyes, know what I mean? Well, readers, I must go for now. Hopefully, soon, I am able to update with pics...I'll admit that I've been quite lazy about that lately. Time to get some breakfast!!
