After a shopping spree last night at 8:00 with Caitlyn and Candace for some odds-n-ends and some more Royal blue Red Heart Super Saver yarn, I was able to put the final 22 rows on the Laker Ripple afghan this morning. Cassie chose the colors, and I made it large enough for her to use it for many years to come. Perhaps her Teenie-Tiny baby blanket will finally be retired! LOL
The rest of the day was playing Beautician to two lil' girls.
|Can't tell these two are sisters, can you?!?!!? :D|
I now have two lil' girls bebopping around the house, flipping their hair from side-to-side, la-la-ing. I'm fairly certain they like the style!
Since the day is mostly whittled away, I don't think I have any ambition to head downstairs to play in the sewing room, therefore, I'll see how many more rows I can add to the newest afghan in the works.
It's a corner-to-corner pattern, alternating Red and White (obviously), but then will be blue on the other diagonal half, with 50 stars crocheted on top. I was inspired by a picture posted on Facebook a few weeks' back, so I went off searching for a corner-to-corner pattern to try to remake it. I shouldn't be surprised at all that Mikey (via Red Heart and the Crochet Crowd) had a tutorial made up for this pattern. Mikey is the dude I took all of my crochet lessons from, via YouTube. His Youtube channel is absolutely amazing!!! Interested in learning crochet??? Check out his channel. He's super funny... and has a cute lil' Canadian accent to boot! :)
Tomorrow is Monday, but... I'm still able to relax tonight. Tomorrow and Tuesday are inservice days for the staff; students have vacation all week due to Deer Hunting (the Wisconsin holiday!!!!) and Thanksgiving.
Happy Sunday everyone!
