Showing Off!

More projects finished since my last post. I am slowly, but surely, working my way through the large yarn stash sitting in my spare room.

This giant scarf is from a pattern in the archives of CrochetMe . I changed up the stripe patterning. It's made with Lion Brand's Homespun yarn using a Q hook.

You know how much I really need a giant scarf. I live in Mississippi where the temperature is currently 95 F and the heat index is expected to be 105F.

I kept the picture a bit big so you can see the other works-in-progress I've got going. One day I'll finish them all. (maybe) There's also a basket of cotton yarn there and the big brown thing has more yarn inside.

In the tote of left of picture is a baby blanket that I just need to finish putting the flower border on. The folded object below it is a scrap afghan that will one day fit over our queen-sized bed. (It's a rather ambitious project.) The white tote on the right has a wool sweater I'm knitting. I've got the back done and one sleeve almost finished. (See above for the temperature today and you'll know why I'm not working on it in July.)

Crocheted blue bag made with Aunt Lydia's "Denim" thread. The pattern is
here . I added a flap so the bag wouldn't always be wide open. I really like this. It's a nice size, perfect for carrying my sock stuff around.

And speaking of socks, I finished knitting one. I'm going to wait to post a picture until I have two though.

I'm almost finished with my doily for the great Crochetville Doily Swap. I've made a few 8-inch squares, but they didn't photograph well so I'll have to post them later.

Other than that, it's HOT & HUMID here. My yard needs mowing and so far I've been unable to get the dogs to help with that chore.


Cool bag! And I really like your little ducky in your photos! It makes for a unique signature.
I have the same pattern for that bag but I seem to be having problems making it....maybe I don't have the patience right now to do so but you did an awesome job. I like your flap that you added. Did you line your bag? Thank you so much for sharing your blog with us!!!
