More FOs!!!! :D

Can you believe it? I have even more FOs to show you! πŸ˜€

Here’s one I thought I had shared with you before, but apparently didn’t. It’s the baby afghan for my DD, Thing 1. I started it while pregnant with the twins, but just got around to finishing it in March. Sad, I know. And I haven’t even started one for her brother yet!

The pattern is Fenced-In Daisy by Mary Lamb Becker and comes from the Leisure Arts Book #2853, Our Best Baby Afghans. I had seen this pattern years before and loved it. I just had to wait till I had a girl…and fortunately I did! πŸ˜€

I also finally got a photo of that Scouting for Food Bag:

I’ts not a great photo, but at least it’s something to show. πŸ˜‰ The pattern is The Green Shopping Bag from RecylceCindy and is made of plarn that was recylced from leftoever Scouting for Food bags (hence the name). And there are LOTS of other great recyling projects on her website too…even a baseball cap made from plarn!

And then I had a quick project this past week. My oldest went to Cub Camp and I got to work staff one day too. I got to teach the boys how to make a foam water bottle holder, but of course, I had to show off crochet too…so I made a crocheted water bottle holder for myself. It got a lot of compliments and was verrrrrry useful! πŸ˜€

The pattern is Girls Water Bottle Holder by Chelle Grissam (rav link). I used all but about 11 yards of one skein of Lily’s Sugar’n Cream Stripes in Country Stripes. I made a few changes too. I made the strap slightly longer, since I’m a woman, not a “girl”. It does stretch a bit with a bottle in it and perhaps I should have made it not quite as long, but it still needed to be longer than the pattern stated. Also, instead of finishing off the strap and sewing it on, I continued and attached the strap with a chain stitch through the back loop and just continued on with the crab stitch edging through the front loops. This way it was all one piece and I only had one end to weave in. πŸ˜€

I also started another new design that I was hoping to finish for Cub Camp. But the kids weren’t cooperating with letting me work on it, so I didn’t finish it. And this way it gives me more time to play and tweak the design. Maybe I’ll even try submitting it for a Spring or Summer edition somewhere. Hmm… πŸ˜‰

That’s probably the last of the FO’s I’ll have to show you for a little while. I’m going to be super busy the next month working on a project that I’ll get to tell you more about later. But knowing me, that probably won’t stop me from starting at least a project or two. LOL

Happy Crafting! πŸ˜€
