Lost in Crochet Land

Since picking up crochet this past summer, I've been doing a lot of yarn therapy.

It started with making a baby blanket for the couple across the street who welcomed their first child in late August.

Then I made a lap throw for a friend of my sister who fell and broke her hip. 

When I visited her, it was the middle of the summer and this lovely lady was cold.... and I about melted in the room... the temp was set so high.   So, after the lap throw, I made a small cape using this pattern...

....and this yarn, a teal-green and gray.   (I forgot to take a photo before shipping it off.)

My sister reports that her friend uses the throw all the time and, now that the temps outside are falling, the cape is being worn as well.   So I decided that Mrs. Claus needs to send a Christmas present.

I'm using this pattern..

...and this yarn:  Victorian Rose

I started this project Friday after work.... and after a very l-o-n-g, l--o--n--g week.

I've done a LOT of crocheting this fall...  and it's going to be a very crochet kinda Christmas around here.  I'll post photos after the holidays.  

To all my friends out there in Blogland...  I think of you often.  Life (mostly work) has tossed a lot my way this school year and it's difficult to keep up sometimes.

Despite work stress, I have much to be thankful for...  including a new grandpuppy!

Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving....
