I also have a afghan half finished. Maybe just 4 years for mine. It is the colour of the Bed Doll and I am wanting to send both to myGGD for her bedroom. Lavender and white are her colours. At least they were when she was about 4. Now 6 years later she maybe changing her colours. Will see
I was out today. Got all those books back to library. Did some card buy for Grads. one birthday. Got so hot that I had to just come home. Will go to drug store about 7 tonight. Be cooler

Good morning all!

It has been a long time since I picked up any knitting or crocheting, and even longer for needle work.

I thought of you all when I ran across some old pattern booklets in Project Gutenberg. In fact, I actually have some of them.

This one I am not sure I have, but I do have some of the patterns listed: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/62482

These two I have: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/62487 I made the curler carrier, the boots, and fuzzy wuzzy. I still have the curler carrier although I don't do curlers anymore.

I am not sure I would call hairpin lace "exciting" I do like a few of these patterns including the lovely baby set. http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/62718

Anyone working on anything during this shutdown? I really need to get back to finishing a few projects. The cats, however, may have other ideas for my yarn.

I have a hairpin white blanket I started long ago  and abandoned, I don't know why.
 Maybe I should try to finish  it? At the time I thought it was fun and growing fast.

I was always one that could sit for hours either Crochet, Reading. Polishing things. etc. for some reason right now just can't stick to one thing. Lasts about 15 min. and up on my feet walking around the house again.This scorching weather not helping. Maybe had this pandemic happened in Winter would be easier. Hope it doesnt last till then.

I have the same problem . I sit for a few minutes & get antsie & need to get up & walk through the house . I'm very unsettled .

This is what I'm working on now .

Nice, alpiner.  How much bigger are you planning to go?

It is a self striping yarn .  It is now 52 inches long .  I asked our daughter if she could use another afghan & she said they use afghans a lot .  We are planning to visit her this summer so I'll take it along to give her .



Amy

WOW!! :thumbup:  The afghan is beautiful!! I must admit I can't imagine all the weight on your hands/arms when doing this but certainly well worth it!! Your daughter is  going to love this. Thank you for sharing the photo..

The yarn is actually not heavy when made into the afghan .

I finished this afghan a few weeks ago for a high school friend I hope to visit next month . It is the same pattern as the afghan above it .
