It's been awhile since I've posted some projects so here's what I've completed since summer...

A scrap afghan done in hdc about 5 x 5 feet, I went through quite alot of my washable yarn stash and I have to say I'm itching to start another one but it will have to wait till after the holiday crafting is done.


This blanket is for my best friends 9 yo daughter for Xmas. She picked the hot pink color and wanted the whole thing in pink and nothing else. Of course 2 weeks later blue was her favorite color  Smiley


This blanket was started from a free coaster pattern I found browsing online one day. I just loved the spiral look, so I just kept going and going and going. The blanket is almost 6 x 6 feet square and is nice and toasty.



The grey viking helmet was made for a friend of a friend as a joke. When I took it to work to show it off, a coworker HAD to have one in blue.




And here is a willie warmer, also made for a friend of a friend. I thought it looked pretty boring and plain so I decided to make it more like a hoodie  Smiley so I added a drawstring for the hood and a hand warmer.

That spiral is lovely- I love the lacy white trim circle.
But the scrap afghan is sooooo beautiful! I would die for one- I may have to get busy crocheting (which i suck at!).

Everything is awesome, but the Willy Warmer gets my vote.  The drawstring and the hand warmer!  Brilliant!
