Work in progress

This is the new afghan I'm making. I have finished with the white and am working on the light pink. As you can see by the granny square next to it, there are 3 other, darker, pinks that I will also do 'blocks' of. This is for my daughter, she claimed it. It's very easy too. I love it. Takes a lot of yarn though. I'm posting the pattern from husbands aunt as well just in case someone else thinks it's perfect for them too.

Shell Afghan

Chain 180

Row 1....Turn: do 2 db in 3rd st., =1/2 shell

Skip 2 sts & sc in next st

Skip 2 sts & in next st do 3 db, chain 1 & do 3 more db in same st ...= shell

Repeat above, across, ending with sc.

Row 2....Turn: chain 3, do 2 db in 1st st

Sc in back loop of chain in center of shell

Make shell in back of loop of next sc. Repeat across


..................I love it.............

Afghan: First project completed

My first project...finished!!

It's not perfect, by any stretch of the imagination but my 6 year old son, Austin says it's "just the way I wanted it", so it works for me.

Now....on to the next project.

Happy New Year

Here it is, already 2006. Time sure flies.
2005 was a pretty good year, I did get married after alll, but I hope 2006 is even better. We have our house up for sale so I hope we can sell it and buy a new house that is bigger to suit all our kids and animals.
My husband, James (or Jamie as I call him) is a great guy and loves my 3 kids a lot. A household with 2 teenagers and a primary school child can be a challenging place to be but it's never dull, I 'll say that. Especially when his son, who is a 'tween' comes for the weekend.

Happy NewYear to everyone. Have a great 2006!!
