This is my attempt at the "infamous" Seraphina Shawl. http://www.angelfire.com/journal2/donisfuff/croshawl.html, corrections and helpful hints available at http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?p=1205529. There is a chart for the pattern here: http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1203781&postcount=2
I started this prior to going in for heart surgery, but still haven't finished it. Once I finish the project I'm working on right now, I plan to go back to this. I'm seriously considering giving it to my daughter-in-law for when she nurses my future granddaughter. I just have to get it finished in time, and I'm not sure that I will.
This is as far as I've gotten on a sweater for myself that you can see I started almost a year ago. It's really more of a jacket than a sweater. The pattern is located at
http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/khs-flatteringJacket.html. The yarn I'm using is
Bernat Softee Chunky Twists Tawny Rose.
This is the beginning of the blanket I made for my Grand-nephew, Brady. It's made with Red Heart Blueberry Pie. It's also from a very old pattern that I've used at least 3 other times. I neglected to take a photo of it when it was finished. I hope to get a photo from Brady's Mommy, Brittany, and will post it when I do.
I knit this hat to donate to our local VFW group. I did a second one, with slightly different colors. This is from a beginner's book that I've had for at least 30 years. It's a very basic k1-p1 pattern. I can't begin to guess how many hats I've made from this pattern over the years. This one is made with Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Solid Colonial Blue.
This is one half of a pair of fingerless mitts I made for myself. I made them because during the cold weather my hands sometimes get pretty chilly when I'm at the computer. The yarn is Red Heart Plum Pudding. The pattern calls for G Hook, but I crochet tight and ended up going up to a size J to get it to fit. I LOVE this pattern!!! Only took me a little over an hour to finish each one. (Okay, so I crochet slow…LOL) But being able to finish the pair in one day is a real bonus for me. The pattern is available online at http://suzies-yarnie-stuff.blogspot.com/2006/02/fingerless-mitts-pattern.html.
This is a blanket I made for my Grand-niece, Sarah. It's made with Red Heart Bikini. It's from an old pattern that I've had for quite some time. It's a simple pattern, but time consuming because it's all popcorn stitch.
I'm in the midst of a project for my coming granddaughter. I'll post pictures as soon as it's finished and on the way to Philadelphia.
