Well it's been a while since my last post. I haven't been doing much, just the same old, same old.. I've been trying to hurry up and finish a baby afghan I've been working on for my husbands and my niece. She's having her first baby any day now. She's due in two days. I still don't have the afghan done. :( I was on the last motif of this afghan, and ran out of yarn. Waaaaa! I hate that! So, I am going to try to get up to the store tonight and get another skein. I don't even have the wrapper or anything, so I will have to get a close match. :( This is the second full skein I finished. I don't get it.... Well I will just be glad when this baby is done! I'll be sure to take a picture when it's finished. Meanwhile, I am also working on a baby sweater. Dot's Cuddle Me Hooded Baby Sweater. You can find it at Crochet Pattern Central. I'm on the second sleeve. I don't know who I should give this to. I originally started it for our niece, but then thought maybe I should give it to Pine Ridge. Then I thought, no I should give it to the niece, she's 'family', they'll almost be expecting it... Then I thought, 'If I give her an afghan and a sweater, then I'll have to give his sister one, too. (His sister is pregnant, too....) UGH! And his sister has done a lot to help us out financially this past year. So she really deserves a whole layette. Oi~ the joys of crocheting.... Well I bought a new crochet magazine. I have been eyeing the Interweave Crochet issue that's out, but the only thing I really like in it is a ripple scarf. And a pineapple shrug. But, Caron has a very similar pattern, free online, that I like better. And, the magazine is almost $8 if I remember correctly. Today I saw Family Circle Easy Crochet (this is not the magazines website, but...) I looked through it (with three kids next to me, not an easy task...) But it did have a lot of baby stuff in it. So that must be why I bought it. So many babies due not enough ideas.... And only $6. ;) Well that's all that I've been up to. Hope everyone is having a nice week. :)

Hi Mimi!
We have actually had problems with our computer and phone line. Long story... Still not fully resolved. I've been thinking about you but I have been busy lately. Thanks for stopping by, I'm off to see your blog now. :)
