First Projects

Today I thought I’d give you a peek into some of my “old” crochet projects and a couple of my numerous WIPs. This here was my first ever finished work, a Shell Afghan laptop mat for my desk then (not counting the coaster on the upper left) :

I have since gotten myself a nicer (& more cluttered) desk & have used the mat as a cover for our printer.

I gained some confidence after that first work & dared to make a phone cozy with no pattern (gasp!).

Lastly, my “biggest” work so far, a Granny Stripes Blanket (pattern from Lucy of Attic 24). Here it was, still with the intimidating ends waiting to be weaved.

Here it is again while I was working on the borders. It ended up being a little wrinkly on the edges but I love it just the same!

Here it is again, in action, keeping the Big Girl warm (sorry for the poor quality of the pic).

Up next – some WIPs. First, another Granny Stripe, now in more subdued, earthy colors.

And a Vintage Stripe Blanket; pattern by Bella Dia, happily discovered through Ravelry.


Now, time to for some hooky time. Have to work on my cushion; it’s been a slooooow creep but we’re getting there ;p
