I've been meaning to post...

...in the hopes that it helps me get Leo's crocheted blanket finished. I have 6 balls of yarn, and I'm now on the 4th... The pattern is a simple shell pattern of 5 doubles in one, skip 2, single crochet, skip two, 5 doubles... etc...

I wanted it done by December so that I could knit Ivy a dress for Christmas... However, I think I'm only about 1/2 done. I'm on ball #4 - just started it. If I try to post daily, I'll have incentive to get some done each day...

You are so close to being done! I don't understand crochet at all. Biggrin

Yeah! Progress!

Ivy won't lack for dresses this Christmas...only a knit one from her Mommy... But then, there's valentine's day! Wink

By the way, do the yellow hat and leg warmers fit? Can I see a photo?

Sorry, no photo of leg warmers yet...

But do you remember this outfit that you knit back in 2007?

OMG! That was a project a number of us tried on this forum...a group activity! I loved the pattern...but it turned out much harder than it looked. I never thought it would fit anybody! Poor girl won't be able to unbutton fast enough to go pee.....

Yay! Pictures of projects! Love the blanket...keep going!

And I remember that project. I did not attempt it and gardenbug, i think you might have been the only one to actually finish it? I can't honestly remember now.

The picture is adorable and it fits Ivy great right now! LOL about peeing.

Haven't knit a stitch this fall/winter yet Sad How depressing this is starting to get!

It's done!!!!

I swear that the only time I have to crochet/knit is in the passenger seat of the vehicle. Can't have too complicated a pattern, though.

My next project is Ivy's skirt...
