Purple/Green/White is just Beautiful together, Love it! The verigated yarn really brings my eye in to the details. You will have to make another one for your precious Mumsy.

Oh, a scrapghan it such a good idea. Your finished hexagons are fabulous. It's so much fun to mix and match different color combos. If I only had a yarn store in my craft room to see all the possibilities.lol Can I use differnt textured yarn or would it be to hard to figure out the stitches? Thanks for sharing.

Your ripple afghan is gorgeous! What are you going to do with the yo-yos?
I have made fabric yo yos, but never crocheted ones. That sounds like a fun idea.

Here's something fun to do with yo-yos. Scroll down to see the huge afghan I made from 750 yo-yos.

Hi Ladies! Sorry I've been MIA. I've been drowning in my Homespun afghan. I'm on row 26 and it's already huge! And to think I still have 14 more rows to go! I'll keep you posted.. it may be slow going from this point on. I've still yet to get cracking on those Xmas cards!

redsabby518 -

That granny stitch hat is so cute! It's similar to a pattern I've bookmarked in my Happy Hooker book. Same thing for the pretty poinsetta flower you've posted. One book on my wish list this season is Crochet Bouquet: Easy Designs for Dozens of Flowers.

I agree!! I'm being more productive with my spare time (those spare 10-15 minutes I'm able to find) than being in a tv stupor on the couch.

I'm jealous that you can whip out these projects in seemingly no time. That afghan is beautiful. I so love the bold colors... makes the detail really pop.

This is a join-as-you-go afghan I did last year. The pattern is in a book. If anyone is interested, I will look it up.

Yikes, how do I do one of the little clickie pics?

You know you are getting to the end when your afghan is more difficult to move!

I wish I could make her one but the varigated was from my stash, & like 10 years old. They don't make it anymore.

I've used some soft yarn which is slightly thinner then regular worsted weight, but I wouldn't want to vary to much, or the hexagons would be different sizes. Hard to match up when they're all different.

The yo yos are the first round of the hexagons. Sorry to confuse you.

Hi there. I wondered where you wondered off to.

Yay on getting so far on your afghan. And good luck on the christmas cards. I have mine done just need to fill them out & send them. That's the hardest part if you ask me.

The key to the yoyo afghan was just doing a little at a time. The whole thing took about a year, but it was easy. When my scrap balls started rolling out of my basket, I'd make some yoyos, always weaving the ends in as I went (trust me, that's the key to sanity!) Each time I had accumulated 150 yoyos, I'd bring out the afghan and add five more rows of 30 yoyos to it. And so on. It's made of 25 rows of 30 yoyos each. I completed a lot of other projects in the meantime. The afghan is enormous - in the photo, it's on my king size bed!

This is kinda what I'm doing with my hexagon one.It's for between projects & when I need a break from my current project. It will probably take awhile to finish.

Good morning - Yes I have finished my set of washcloths. I need to take pics and get them on here. I am currently making a vest for my grandfather, (wish me luck), but had to try some thread crochet last night. I've always wanted to attempt it, but never took the time. So, I made a book mark last night. Nice, small place to start. What are you making now?

i've been crocheting off and on for years. i started when i had my strokes(yes im too young to have them but i did....)anyways...i did it cause i didnt have anything to do in the wheelchair so i grabbed yarn and a hook. i only remembered what my mom taught me which was the triple stitch(i think that's what it's called) and i've done some blankets and that's about it. i dont know how to do anything else, but would love to learn so i can make some other style blankets. now my mil, she can hook like a maniac and do some beautiful pieces.......i do remember though, and i still have it, my grandmother made this one blanket for me and it's warm as anything. when MY kids are cold, i put that sucker on them and they say it's too warm after while, lol......

Now that I've read ahead, I see how long it took! lol. You give good advice on finishing as you go.

Ok, I am going to try to share a few of my favorite things that I've done. Here is one that is a baby kimono. I was so excited to have a reason to make something for a girl, as I had only made little boy things...

Here is a project that I just finished. It's an ad-lib extension of my Cable Hearts square pattern. It was started on Friday evening and finished Sunday at midnight. I was under a deadline because the teacher I made it for goes on maternity leave after tomorrow.

Have you seen the EdgeryDoo to crochet around fleece blankets? I made my own template with plexiglass (with DH's help) and made a couple small blankets this weekend. It was a lot of fun! The blanket is so soft - I used Caron Simply Soft worsted weight yarn for the border.

Ugh, I have the worst cold! The best part is that I have my grams crocheted blanket. I swear a crocheted blanket makes all the difference when you're sick! There's just something comforting about it.
