Of WIPs...

There is a war going on within my head regarding my lovely WIPs (in no paticular order)...

1. The never-ending poncho... its about 80% complete and I just want to finish it up but at this point, its admittedly BORING!

2. A mate to my FIRST SOCK (picture to follow soon)***Done! Please scroll up to see a picture :) ***

3. A crochet blanket in alternating rows of single and double crochet made out of Pound of Love (about 2 pounds so far). This one was started in November 2002.

4. Promised crocheted bookmarks for a fellow book reviewer. (3 done, ? to go -- I'm going to take a picture before I mail them) ***DONE! But I forgot to take a picture, I was just too much in a hurry to get them finished... I'm going to make some for myself and I'll take pictures of those...I hope!***

5. Plastic bag crochet test project - It will either be under my feet in front of the kitchen sink or I will put it in the dog house for the dogs... Cutting the bags into strips is rather tedious. This project is on HOLD indefinitely!

Plus, I have a whole list of projects I want to dive into, mostly socks :)

I love the .99 Cents Only store!

I heard there was more Lion Brand Yarn at .99 Cents Only stores and so I just had to run out to the Lancaster store to check it out! I bought some of the Boucle and a little Fun Fur Stripes. However, I need to be careful as my stash is starting to get bigger than I had planned LOL!

What I am working on...

MY FIRST PAIR OF SOCKS (for my daughter)!!!

Thanks to my knitting buddies Darcy (for some wonderful yarn and dpns) and Mindy (for more yarn plus a demo to get me started), I am on the road to what is sure to be a lifelong love of socks. Now, if I only had a picture to post...

Crochet Bunny: A Little Project From January...

Originally uploaded by Melissa F in CA.

This is the very first toy I've ever made and I'm sooooo excited! My daughters appreciated my handiwork but like so many toys, it has been left somewhere, most likely in their black hole of a room... I do plan to make more, probably as gifts...
