One thing that has remained constant is that I am still crocheting. I don’t have as much time as I used to for crocheting, but I still always have a project in the works and several in mind. Here are some of the projects that I’ve done over the past year.
I made several hats, scarves, and purses for Miss Wiggles and Miss Munchkin.
Miss Wiggles really likes hats and purses!
In April I began working on a wedding gift for my niece, Chelsea. She requested a table runner with an apple theme (not easy to find!). I finished crocheting this in August, and got it blocked and starched in September, just in time to take to NY for the wedding.
This runner was just under 5 feet long.
Here’s a close-up of one end, about 1/3 of the total.
Lately, since finishing the wedding project, I’ve been making pot holders and more hats for Miss Wiggles.
Some of these were wedding gifts while others I gave away to family in NY.
And more hats, because Miss Wiggles washed her hat one too many times and needed a new one!
The top two are for Miss Wiggles and the bottom two are for her younger cousin. These hats are so much fun to make. I’m going to make a few to try to sell for Christmas gifts.
And then I will have to get working on my brother’s wedding gift. Roger and his new wife Nancy also requested a table runner. I have the pattern; I just need to spend some time with a couple of different threads to see which is going to work up best. I’ll post my progress on that when I finally get it started.
