My First Post!

It's my first post on my new blog! This time I hope to keep up with this. I'm going to use this blog to post pictures of my crochet projects. I hope you enjoy them.

A little about me...I'm from Wisconsin, and love it here. I've been crocheting for over 35 years now, and make all sorts of things, but my most favorite is probably afghans. More about me later on.

Here are some pics of things I've been working on this summer:

This is an afghan I've started with my scrap yarn. The pattern came from "The Harmony Guides 300 Crochet Stitches Volume 6". Okay, so not much to see yet, but this one is fun to do, so I hope to have more pics of this soon.

Next are some dishcloths. I went crazy with these over the summer! The first three pics are Tulip Stitch dishcloths. The pattern came from here:

I really became addicted to making these. They take less than one ball of yarn, and are so fast to make once you get started on them.

Then, I got hooked on making Magic Square hotpads. This are fun to make too! The pattern I used for my hotpads came from here:

Here they are:

My latest project is an afghan from the Leisure Art's leaflet #4592, "Artsy Afghans". I'm working on Rainbow Circle. For mine, I'm using Hobby Lobby "I Love This Yarn" in Grape, Orchid, and Grapevine Ombre:

This one is about half finished, and it's quick to make, so I hope to have this one finished soon.

I'll post more pics soon!
