Yeah, that's how long it seems to have been since I posted last. Busyness has captured me and it won't let me go. My evil friend volunteered me to be on the costume committee for the fall musical at the high school, so I have been busy with that. That along with everything else that starts up in the fall, like soccer, piano, voice, church activities, etc. - yupp that equals busy me.
I did actually accomplish something though. At last, another FO!
I finished the shrug and it fits Alex, and it DEFINITELY doesn't fit me. Oh well, I kinda expected that. This pic really doesn't do it justice though. There isn't really a wonky spot on the front edging either, it was just in a weird position when I took the pic. It is so cute on her when she is not wearing a sports bra with a tank top that is too big for her. (Believe me, I tried to get her to change it for the pic!) I used the Knot Ugly Shrug Pattern from the Happy Hooker book. I modified it quite a bit, but mostly on just the edgings. I really like it on her, and I think I will make another one (a bazillion times bigger!) for myself. I am tellin ya....I really love to crochet! If you haven't tried it yet, go for it. It is fun to achieve stitches that look different from knitting.
Well I am off to continue my organizing, and let me tell ya, many, many things here need it. Yikes, the paper piles alone!!!!!! I also need to plan my knitting and crochet projects for this weekend. I am going to a family wedding out of state, and I will have many, many hours for knitting and crocheting. The trip takes about 14 hrs each way, and yahooie, I don't have to drive. I smell a pair of socks coming...........
