More And More Crafting

Last night I went through my stash and got up ALL of my green yarns. There are some very interesting shades. Some are muted, muddier greens while others are bright, neon greens. I brought them out to the living room and started on Project Linus Afghan #6. I am not sure how this one is going to turn out with all of the different hues but, I guess since they are all shades of green, it should work right? I'll post pics when completed.

I think this is how I will be pulling the colors together for the next few Project Linus afghans, by color. I do have some variegated yarns but am not sure of how to incorporate those into afghans yet.

Also, when going through my stash (Hubby had a great idea of organizing the closet RIGHT before Christmas), I found some sock yarn I completely forgot I had bought (along with a LOT of other yarns I don't remember purchasing). So, I CO some socks for me! The yarn is Knit Picks Felici in the Martinique colorway. Green, blues, fuchsia and purple stripes! LOVE the colors! But why did I put it away never to be made into luscious socks? Who knows but already I am to the heel turn on the first sock, knitting toe-up of course so I can make them as tall as possible! I will also post pics when complete.

Hoping you all have a fun, festive and safe New Years this weekend! I know I will be home, getting tipsy with the Hubby and listening to my favorite 80's music until midnight (who knows, I may even decide to break out the old dance moves)lol! Can't wait for the wine and rum to flow (no, I am not a lush, just love to occasionally let loose)!

Project Linus Afghan #5....Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

Just finished afghan #5 for Project Linus. This one the color combination worried me. That was until my teenaged daughter told me the colors go great together! So, I trusted her in this one. It reminds me of chocolate dipped strawberries hence the name. LOL

Been Crocheting Away!

After finding our local chapter for Project Linus, I immediately got busy crocheting some afghans! I got my inspiration from Linda of Alottastitches and all of her beautiful afghans she makes for charity. Mine are nowhere near as beautiful but I think they will be just as loved by the child that receives them! Here are the ones I made so far!

Afghan #1:

Afghan #2:

Afghan #3:

Afghan #4:

All four were made with yarn from my stash. I'm not sure if #3 or #4 is my favorite so far. I hope to be able to finish 1 more before December 31st!
