WIP - Braided Mischief Scarf

Progress has begun on the braided mischief scarf from Interweave Knit's Scarf Style. I'm using some yummy yarn, Manos del Uruguay, that I picked up last time I visited Woolbearers, my LYS.

Third L&B in Progress

I started my 3rd Lace & Bobbles Afghan. I'm using up yarn that my mom had from her cross stitching days. This one will be slow going as I leave it at her house and only work on it when i'm there. Sorry for the bad pic, I took it with my phone.

Knit Cable Purse

I finally finished this purse by adding the lining and handles. I'm bad when it comes to finishing project. I complete the knitting or crocheting portion then put it aside to work on something else. I really hate sewing, weaving in ends, etc but unfortunately it's part of the project. This purse was done with Bernat Country Wool.

Finally some FO's

Things have been busy lately andI haven't had a lot of time for any crocheting or knitting this past week. I did get this bolero done for my daughter for her upcoming birthday. She had asked what I was going to use the yarn for and commented she'd like some type of jacket - hint, hint. The yarn is Bernat's Miami which is now discontinued. Pattern is based on the boucle cardigan from Simply Creative Crochet.

I had been working on this sweater for awhile, I just couldn't seem to get it completed. Yarn is TLC Lustre and my own pattern.

Weekend's Projects

I had a three day weekend. I spent half of it working in the house stripping wall paper and painting stairs. Other half I spent finishing up some WIPs and trying to get through some of the stash.

I finished this round ripple afghan. I was going to give it to my grandson. But my oldest son saw it and commented on how neat it was. I asked him jokingly if he wanted it and he said yes. Go figure. How much you want to bet my youngest son will want one??? Can't do for one and not the other around here. :-) I used TLC Lustre that I picked up on sale a few weeks ago.

This capelet and scarf was done with leftover Bernat Soft Boucle, leftover from the cardigan I did for the Olympic CAL. I would of prefered the capelet to be a little longer but I ran out of yarn. I got the pattern from Craftster. I actually started the scarf a week ago. I still prefer crocheting, it's a lot quicker for me.

And the next capelet I used up some leftover Jo~Ann Rainbow Boucle. Pattern came from Simply Creative Crochet.
