Works in Progress- My first afghan...

I am working on a small afghan right now.  I've never made an afghan, but I got a large amount of yarn from someone moving away and I didn't have any projects that I could use if for. I decided to make small blanket to curl up on the couch with.  I just made a traditional granny square and I will continue to make rounds until I run out of blue yarn.  I would say I'm in the home stretch right now.

This is one of those projects that I put away for long periods of time and then pull out when I need something mindless to do while watching a movie.  Since I'm almost done I might work overtime on it for the next few days and get it ready for Christmas.

Works in Progress... A snowflakes chance in Egypt..

I'm in the process of making snow in Cairo... or at least I'm crocheting snowflakes. Christmas break is approaching and I'm making snowflake ornaments and washcloths for my daughter's teachers.  I still need to weave in ends and block them.  I also need to make a few more of the washcloths.  I thought I'd make some hot chocolate mix or some cookies for them as well.

The only chance we will have of a white Christmas around here is if we take a trip to the white desert.  Here are a couple of photos from our Eid holiday trip.  It is stunning and I could easily visit it a second time.

Works in Progress

This week I am working on making up some cute patterns for washcloths in animal shapes.  I have tons of sock monkey yarn and I thought that little sock monkey washcloths would make cute gifts for the kids.  When I'm finished I'll posts photos and possibly a pattern as well.  With Christmas just around the corner I'm trying to find inspiration for gifts for my friends and family by designing toys and fun stuff for them this holiday season.  I'm converting my Kitty Coin Purse to a crochet pattern as well.  It should be available later this week or early next week as a free pattern.

 What are you working on right now?
