Ok, I've been really bad about not updating so far this year. Just haven't been able to find the time for everything that needs doing & still working on a graphed afghan that my daughter asked me to do for her about 3 weeks before Christmas. She knew it wouldn't get done in time for Christmas, but I don't think she realized just how long it takes Mom to graph something & get it done. I don't think she thought it would take this long. Heh. But it is getting done & I'll definitely try to put a pic here once it's finished. In the meantime, here are a few pics to show how my holidays went.This is my darling daughter with what I think was probably her favorite gift of the year. Our best friend from NYC came out & had me help him finish up his Christmas shopping for her. When I saw the bear, I told him it would be the perfect companion for "Birthday Bear", which my daughter has had since she was 2. You can see what a huge success the idea was.
And here's Hubby's & my best friend, wearing the Sherlock Holmes hat I crocheted for him... of course, he's wearing it backwards, but that didn't really matter that much to him. He loved it. I'm glad I took the time to make it.
And this is my boss wearing her Santa hat, which I made from the pattern in the 2006 Crochet-Pattern-A-Day calendar. When I saw the pattern, I asked her if she would actually wear it at work if I made it, & she told me she would. So it got made, & I managed to get a pic of her in it. Can you tell she doesn't like having her pic taken? =0D
I'll be posting more pics later, I've got quite a bit of updating to do, as several projects have been finished in the last couple of months. And I'll be posting pics of the bookmarks I've received in the crochetlist bookmark exchange. These ladies (& now 1 gent also) are great crocheters & have such wonderful creative streaks that I never know what I'll be getting! So much fun!
