Crochet Catch Up

I have been procrastinating!  Its been sooooo long since my last post and I imagine anyone who used to follow me has long given up and moved on to other bloggers who post more often. For months now I've been thinking I should start regularly posting again but to be honest I haven't had all that much to write about so just kept putting it off. So this post will just be a catch-up on a few things.

Stash enhancement (and there's been quite a bit of that) .. included two 100g balls of this King Cole Glitz

Can you see the shiny bits through it? I'm not sure what I'll be making at this stage but would welcome any suggestions.

Finished projects (not many of these I'm afraid as I've had a major dose of start-itis and very little finish-itis) .. My CWA branch had a function earlier this month and we decided at the last minute to include a craft stall. For my contribution I made three pairs of fingerless mitts and a cowl .. (oops, forgot to download the cowl pic). All three pairs of mitts sold @ $15 a pair so I was happy about that.

I've also finished a blanket for Oliver which I'm pleased to say that he seems to like. Here he is having an afternoon nap ..

And for Knit4Charities I've done a few items for 'angel' babies ..

Premmie Blanket

Finally, Nanna brag time ...  Oliver is now 2 years 7 months and is growing up way too fast.  Here he is playing on one of the sculptures at the National Arboretum here in Canberra a month or so back ..

My two grandsons are great mates and enjoy fooling around together. I think its been awhile since I've shown a picture of Ryan who is now 14.5 years old - here's one of my two boys.

Thank you so much for visiting.
