Some of my Projects' Progress...

Yesterday I re-started the Forest Flower Pullover. I had originally started it in Red Heart Super Saver (the pattern called for worsted weight yarn). But it felt awful. Like a thick, stiff, acrylic towel. I thought by using a drapier (?) yarn like simply soft, or wool-ease, or something else, it would work better. (Plus, I could barely get gauge with worsted weight!).. I had two balls of Lion Brand "Pound of Love" that I bought to make *some* wearable with. I finally decided to try that, and make it in the colors the magazine shows it in. This is my progress so far. I actually finished one more repeat (you can see I started it in the picture), and am on another one. But.

This is my progress so far on a baby set I am working on for the April Challenge for Crafting for a Cause. Which is baby stuff. Got the sweater and booties done. I will probably make a hat, too. And the afghan:
Booties, sweater (or sacque), hat, and afghan patterns.. It took me a long time to find the afghan pattern. It's not going so well as I thought... It's more of a diamond shape than square. Sigh. By the time you wrap the baby up in it, though.. :) I always laid the blanket out in a diamond, then wrapped the bottom corner up, one side, then the other side. I have some green buttons to sew on the sweater. The pattern has a tie closure, but I wanted buttons. Kinda wishing I had just done the tie, now that I have to sew them on... LOL
I have been working on other stuff lately too. Dishcloths. I did finish two pairs of socks just like these. (One adult pair, and one child). I haven't taken any pictures of them yet, though. Actually started and almost finished a Bistro! sock, but it was coming out SO huge, I could not get gauge on that thing. I guess you need to use sewing thread and a size 13 hook. Sigh...

Thank you both. I kind of put the Forest Flower Pullover on the side. I have been picking it up here and there, though. I have the second side almost done. I've been working on the shalom cardigan lately. (As long as I don't start another project, LOL)
