My cousin is due in November with her second child. I've been crafting away, trying to come up with a few things that I can give her and her DH in October at their baby shower. I just finished this baby afghan last night.
Well, it's almost finished. I'm going to back it with a soft fleece. It's made out of cheap Red Heart yarn, so it's not the coziest. I'll probably try and find a Noah's Arc theme fleece, to tie in the rainbow effect on the blanket.
Hey y'all! I finished my second project out of the Happy Hooker book. I still need to line it, but those are just details. It's going out in the mail this weekend for a secret mother's day gift. I hope the recipient likes it.
What do you think? Comments and critiques welcomed!
Hey y'all! I posted this over in the SnbHH Forum, but thought I'd share it here, too, in case some of you don't venture over there. It's made from super cheap Red Heart Yarn. It's my first crochet project to complete - EVER - so, I didn't want to use quality stuff. It made itself quickly! I started Monday around noon and finished Tuesday afternoon. It was a fun first time project. I still need line it.

Hey y'all! I decided I needed a break from knitting, but am still obsessed with yarn projects. So, I decided to venture into the world of crocheting. I went out to my local Borders and purchased The Happy Hooker. As the subject indicates, my first crochet project is the clutch: Fit To Be Tied.
I'm happy with it. I did it with super cheap acrylic yarn. I never try things with really good stuff. I started is around noon yesterday and completed it this morning. (Well, that's not entirely true, I still need to line it).
So, this isn't anything fancy. It's just stockinette stitch for 60" on 19us needles. It took less than 2 hours and the yard is from the dollar store, so it cost less than $2 to make. Inexpensive is key for me right now!
I recently finished both of these hats and wanted to get come feedback on them. They are both knit from patterns our of the SnB book (The Kittyville & The Umblical Cord). The Kittyville took a bit of time and effort, since it was my FIRST object knit in the round. Woo hoo! I decided to go minus the ears because it turned out smaller than I had intended, so it's now for my son. While my son would probably dig the ears, well you know how DH's go sometimes. The umblical cord hat is for my neice that I've never met, so I'm fearful it's a bit small, but it's "the thought" at this point. Alright, get to the point, here's the pics:
(this looks a little wonky, but it's hard to get a good picture when it's not on a head)

Thanks for looking! Any questions or comments welcome!!
Hello all! My name is Andrea. I'm a SAHM to Tyler (3.5) and Kailey (2). We live in the Inland Northwest - Spokane, WA. I've been loving to craft most of my life, but just recently found a fire for it again. The newest obsession is making bags, but there isn't anything I wouldn't try - I just need to figure out how to get more funds for all my projects.
Glad to have found this site! You all have already inspired me so much!
