it's about crochet ..... it's about writing ....

Part of me is a wife and mom, part of me is a writer and poet and part of me is still a kid in jeans tooling around in my VW Beetle listening to Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, James Taylor ... and The Beatles ...

Progress .....

I am making progress. I've actually finished the Summer Breeze cardigan for my daughter. Right now I'm trying to decide how to take a picture.

I also finished one sock of a pattern from Needlecraft University. My first try at making socks. The pattern is pretty easy to follow but it called for a cotton sport weight thread called Patons Grace. It's a really nice, soft thread but it feels a little thick for a sock... but then, I don't like thick socks.

I just have to put the edging on a baby afghan. I used the Jaimie Blanket pattern. Love this pattern! It works up fast and makes a nice soft afghan. I am using Bernat Softee Baby. I think I love this yarn, too. It is SO soft.

That's all for now,
hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Halloween has passed;
Thanksgiving is just around the corner.
But the holidays will be shadowed this year.
My mother-in-law passed away.
She was a strong personality
(that's always been sort of the good news and the bad news).
She leaves a void that will be hard to fill.
