Catching up

**Hey I added my blog to the crochet and hook list go vote for me click above or on the sidebar please I'd like to have a few votes! Thanks ** just a little advertisement

so I missed my blogiversary (by like 2 months now, I'm a little slow) so I've decided to show you the first blanket I made
it's a crochet mile a min pattern that I got out of a learn to crochet book. Now it's not the greatest, but it's where I started. so it will always have a place in my closet. I made it for scruff mcgruff (when he was in iraq) as I was looking at it I was thinking that it's not that bad.. Here's a close up of the corner. not bad for a first project.
so that's a blast from the past. What I'm working on now is a round ripple blanket. I'm not sure how bit I'll be making it. It's right now maybe 1-2 feet across. I really like the way it's looking. I think if I made it out of cotton it would look really good for a tablecloth. Here's a close up sorry about the flash, the light here today is kinda dreary.
I'm also pondering that spiral hat I was going to knit I'm thinking it may be easier to crochet.... I'll show you when I actually get started on that. Oh and I'm also working on this. I'm planning on taking the patterns from the grey messed up one and putting them in the blue binder and separating them from each other (crochet and knit) I'm pondering putting them in their individual sections, baby, sweaters, socks, g-squares, bags, accessories. Etc....We'll see if I'm that motivated. LOL it's a big mess.
well I know I'll enjoy it when it's done though.
ok well that's my story and I'm sticking to it! Must go get more coffee....

That blanket is awesome! You did a wonderful job! I hope the hat works out. The round ripple is great. I have yarn to make one so I need to get started. DH says I must get rid of my stash before buying anymore yarn! TTFN!
