Knitting Project

This is an afghan I started a long time ago. I ran out of the blue yarn and, not being able to find the same brand/colour, put the whole thing away. Well, I decided it was time to either finish it off as a lap-ghan or find some yarn that would work. The blue that I found doesn't quite match, but it is close enough to finish the job!

The pattern is from Ladies' Home Journal, Spring/Summer 1976 :) the price os the magazine was $1.50. Lots of retro stuff, probably some of it is back in style--like the crocheted bikini.

I love the colours in this--black, blue, purple and sea green. It's done with double yarn throughout and as you can see, the rows are worked to blend in each new colour.

The finished size will be 41" by 65". It's beautiful and cushie feeling :)

Tea on Saturday

Well, I'm a bit late for tea on Tuesday! However, tea is good anyday :)

Today I'm having peppermint tea and some prune pyrogies. I made a rather large batch of pyrogies, some with potatoes, potatoes and cottage cheese, yams, and just had to do the prunes. Boil them up, melt some butter with brown sugar and cinnamon, and enjoy!

Going to relax and work on a dishcloth I've been making....I think the large ball makes about a dozen or so.

My craft room, the new green paint is called, The Loft. I am going to start putting shelves together and get some of the boxes unpacked....finally!

I actually found the materials in my stack of boxes, to make someone a card. This is called a screen door card and as you can see, has a piece of screen on it. The pattern is in Country Woman magazine. This is great for many occasions, including Christmas.
