Comfortghan squares

These squares were made for two comfortghan requests. The Christmas ones are made for a man's afghan and the flowers for a lady. Both have cancer. It seems as if cancer is becoming more and more prevalant. I hope they begin finding cures for all of them soon.

'05 Crochetville Scarf Swap

The scarves were crocheted for my swap recipient in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

The reversible one was inspired by an old reversible baby blanket pattern and the Patons Canadiana Stained Glass yarn. The white one is a basic basketweave stitch done with Carons Simply Soft and a mohair carrying yarn/thread.


I received my scarf from the other end of the swap at the end of the month...Very warm...wool. And she even made one for my daughter. Thank you so much...

Little Star Baby Blankie

Crocheted this blankie about two weeks ago...my niece, Emmi, was born on the 30th.

Here's the link to the pattern. I used Patons Canadiana Baby varigated, a suede like "ribbon" and ended in a sparkly crystal fuzzy yarn. (Can't find labels...my two yr old took them where???)
