Hi all,

My name's Paula, I live in Mass. w/ DH and two kids (ds9 and dd 1.5). I knit and crochet. I started with crochet a couple of years ago on a dare pretty much as a contest with one of my sisters who was learning to knit. I picked it up really well and eventually moved on to knitting, too. I haven't finished a whole lot of projects yet. My biggest was an afghan for my son with camoflage coloring. But, then a pregnancy and taking care of an infant while working full time kind of got in the way. I've recently started up again and I can't wait to start more projects. I'm halfway through a striped baby blanket for some friends of ours. Unfortunately, it was supposed to be ready before they had the baby as they were due mid-Oct. But they had the baby a couple of weeks ago, so they'll get it a little late. I did get a sweater my sister made ahead and I was able to crochet up a quick hat and booties to go with it. I was very excited, these were the first knit/crochet gifts I've actually made for anyone and they came out great!

I'm really kicking into high gear now, though, as I'm hoping to make at least a few gifts for the holidays. A few shawls, some crochet bath mitts, sweaters for my kids and some crochet hats. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone and getting some more ideas as well as sharing my own.

It's just a cotton yarn, I believe. I think it's the Sugar & Cream yarn? I bought some to make some dishcloths to go with a wedding shower gift and the pattern was on the packaging. I thought they would make nice Christmas gifts.
