My Granny (flower centered) Blanket Update

Here's some of the squares for my afghan that I started oh let's see, ahem...over 2 years ago.  I am making progress now since I finally decided how to attach them.  I have 72 squares about 10 inches each.  I'm doing a single crochet around each one with a 3 chain scallop in white.  These are the 26 that are finished with only 46 more to go!

If you want to see more pix of my squares and read about my crochet epiphany go here.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Challenge moved to later date.

I just wanted to say sorry to all of you out there who were interested in the February challenge that I blogged about at the end of last month. Things have been hectic and there has been some very stressful events I've had to deal with which have kept me from blogging and organising this challenge. George our new baby rabbit is holding on to dear life and we've had to give him some intensive care. Our house renovations and my work load at the moment have also been very overwhelming and time consuming. I am sorry to have to post pone the challenge and anyone who has been waiting for an inviation to join I'm sorry that it's taken so long. I haven't checked emails for quite some time now.

Please keep up the great work and keep posting your wonderful crochet work. I'll let you all know when things get better here and then we can get back to the challenge etc.

Thank you so much
Kathy Ann

‘Pretty in Pink’ - Crochet Shoulder Wrap


This pattern is really quite simple and works up very fast.


I really got the urge to work with pink today and so as you can see I did.

This shawl is worked in a basic trellis pattern. Shaping is created through beginning each row with 7ch and 1 dc into 4th ch.

You can access the free pattern at The Sunroom

Watermelons in February

It's snowy outside so why not crochet some watermelon slices.  The two half slices are potholders and the whole slice is a dish cloth - the little scrubbie is my invention.  They were done with Lilly's Sugar 'n Cream and the patterns can be found in Leisure Arts Kitchen Basics in Cotton.  They were fun to do while watching the snow fall and thinking about summer!
