Getting crafty in the evening hours...

Last night I sat down and decided that enough was enough and that I was going to finish up some outstanding WIPs and make some progress on others.
Well, here are the results......

First up is the snowman I've been making for my nephew. The pattern comes from Jean Greenhowe's Christmas Special booklet and was made using acrylic and 3.0 mm needles.

Next up is two more fan bookmarks - the third one is almost completed. I've gotten the pattern down now so they fly off the hook it seems like!

The next two projects I finished over the past week or so, but here they are....first is all of my snowflakes all blocked and dried....

Then, the last finished project to show off is my little German crocheted bag - I love how it turned out with the Anchor magicline yarn - such great fun with the self striping yarn......
I made progress on the Grannies Blanket from the Spring edition of Crochet Today! as well as a dishcloth and a Log cabin Baby blanket.

I've decided on the round ripple afghan to frog it back to the green and do the last rounds with green instead of pink to make it more boyish looking for my friend Laura's little boy. I ran into her husband this weekend and mentioned that the blanket was too girly and he said to bring it anyway, but I really want to make it more boy orientated.

I think that is about it for today! Enjoy the rest of the week!

Wow, I´m impressed dear Kim! Such a knitting production! I guess, if you finished all these projects in one evening, it´s because you´ll be starting new ones soon! ;-)

Kimberly said...

Vik, you know me way too well! Yes, more projects are being started and I must say have already been started! I can not seem to keep my WIPs down to only a few at a time.

That's a good show, Kimberly!
I love the snowman - I think its more adorable than a crocheted one.
Who wouldn't like the fan bookmarks?...and I guess many will love to make it after seeing yours ;)
Your snowflakes are lovely, its inspiring to see them all!
The bag, with its wonderful color and cute design will surely get a lot of compliments :)

As always very nice and cute. One question who is the snowman for.
At times you are a knitting maching when you put you mind to it.
