Less then six weeks until Christmas.  

What's on your hooks this week?

Anything new?

Anything finished?

If someone was going to give you a handcrafted item....what would you want?

Have a great week.

I finished DH's hat last week, I think I mentioned.

This week I started an finished a hat based on this pattern:


(I made a bunch of changes)

Now I can't see what I'm replying to. It was something about getting a handcrafted gift. At this point, I'd take a cardigan or a wrap. I'm COLD!

Oh yea, and I still have the peacock curtain and a rather large swatch I'm trying to turn into a hat.

I'm working on a filet crochet baby afghan....still not sure if it is going to look o.k. since I'm using a pattern that was designed for thread instead of yarn.

Nothing new...although I keep looking at a pattern book for doilies that's in Walmart...I like all the patterns in the book and those would make nice quick thread projects.

I haven't had a finished project in a long time...I should do that sometime.

A handcrafted crochet hook would be a nice gift.

I am still have a few afghans in the works and I have a Plain Vest for my granddaughter on my needles. The Plain Vest is new. Going well so far, may have some questions when I get to the arm holes. Nothing finished....been busy working around the house. I would like an interchangeable set of knitting needles or maybe a shawl....anything really I loved handcrafted gifts! :)
