After spending the winter at Lake Pleasant, Arizona, with the temperatures in the mid-80′s to low 90′s, we came home to very cool and windy weather. Needless to say, I wanted to turn around and go back! Once home, I had a couple of anniversary cards to make before I could get back to my knitting/crocheting.
When you’re relaxing in a lawn chair under a shade tree in the nice warm weather, it’s so easy to knit or crochet. This bag is crocheted and I am currently using it for another crochet project I’m working on. It’s such a nice size, I think I may end up lining it with fabric and using it for smaller items when traveling.
I started a pair of slippers … but only got one finished. I need to get the other slipper finished before winter because they will be very warm!
I just need to make the pompom that goes on the top of the slipper. These slippers are very comfortable and cushy!
This next bag needs to be starched and then it’ll become a basket. I actually made it for a Christmas present but liked it so much I’m thinking I’m gonna keep it for myself! I like to crochet (or knit) when I’m watching TV in the evening and like my work to be in a basket at my feet. This will be perfect for that!
Last fall, I made my mother a “shrug” for Christmas. She is always cold and I saw this pattern and realized it would be perfect for when she’s sitting in her recliner watching TV. She wears it every day and says it kept her toasty warm.
That’s all for now. I have a few more projects to post later.
