Valentine Decor

With Valentine's day around the corner, I displayed my valentines I made last year.



I also have paper hearts I made with my granddaughter using leftover Christmas paper.



With the hearts, I also have origami cranes.

Blankets

I have been busy with school and work that I feel that my projects have been neglected. But I manage to find the time to work on them.

I hope to have this blanket done soon. It started out as a shawl, but I thought it would be better suited as a blanket.

The next project is a round ripple blanket. I found the pattern on web many years ago (at least 10 years). I actually bought this project to work during our annual holiday party. It caught the attention of a reporter writing an article about the holiday party for my work's publication.
I am not sure when I will get this project done.

Bunny

So here is my bunny, Noro. I named her after the yarn used to make her. I always loved the colors found in Noro, but don't get the yarn oftentimes because it is expensive.

Pretty In Pink

I made this Solomon knot scarf in a couple of hours.

The yarn is a flannel type material. The thick material made it pretty quick to make up. The case I got for my husband for Christmas. It has an assortment of crochet hooks, scissors, ruler, plastic needles, and markers.

I Finished My Cat

I just finished my cat and she is cute. My grand daughter insisted it be a girl and that I name her Elsa.

So the pattern comes out of the book my husband bought me for Christmas.

This does have British instructions, which means that I use single crochet instead of double crochet mentioned in the book. If you ever come across a pattern that has British instructions, just remember to take it down a level. For example:
tc = dc
dc = sc
sc = slip stitch

So the book recommends alpaca yarn. I used Fixation for my cat. For my next animal project, I might look for alpaca or maybe an undyed yarn.

Cat

For Christmas my husband got me book that has patterns to make all sorts of animals. I am not sure where he found it on line. This book is published in the UK and I have to remember that the instructions are in English standard, not American.

So here is my cat so far. All I need to do is finish the tail.
