Here is the scrap afghan where I decided to give it a break for a while, its wide enough for me and my daughter to cuddle under, and almost long enough..

Here's what I started doodling with, not so much free form, just felt like making some little grannies, used Mio's join as you go, and ended up with frames.

While I am a fast crocheter by most people's standards, I am slow compared to some of you. Cheesy I made the frame while watching a couple hours of glee last night, and will probably toss into my purse tomorrow and weave the ends during lunch.
Toying around with what to do with the centers, made a larger granny, but don't love the look of it on the inside, so thinking of making different types of squares to put in the frames, then sew all the frames together for a large afghan.



I have enough of the blue yarn to make all the frames in the same colors.

I completed two projects today! Woot Woot! I am still working on my dog's costume, the shrug has been on pause for a few days and I haven't started the skirt.  But I need to start some squares for a blanket for my favorite teacher's retirement and I'm doing that in just a moment Cheesy

I'm still working on this bellydance belt.



I think it's going to need blocked....I think it will show the pattern better.  That's the goal for tomorrow... Oh yea..and it needs tassels.  Those should be fun to make  Grin

I'm not sure how to make the ties.  I'm thinking to make it kind of like a wrap skirt where the tie can go thru the belt part....

I was working on the yellow mittens on my lunch break today when one of my co-workers asked me what I was crocheting (I have my co-workers so well trained that even when I'm making something that looks knitted, like these mittens, they can still tell the difference from actual knitting! Anyhoo...).

I told him it was mittens.  He said, "Oh! From over here it looks like a cob of corn!"

I guess I picked the colours right!! Ha!

Wednesday snuck up on my this week!

This morning I started a scarf that I think might be pretty neat, though the edges are looking a bit weird.  I'm going to take a closer look at it on my lunch break and see if it's salvageable.

I'll post a picture of it soon!





What are YOU working on?

I'm working on a project for a swap so I can't show pictures or say very much.  Sad

But I did finish 3 other crochet projects (besides my bellydance belt) last week for another swap!  I made lots of progress but just can't show it off yet!
