Crochet: What I've Been Up To

Ahhh, after a few days of rain we finally have a spot of sunshine at the moment. I cannot be happier to get the pics of my crochet items I have been working on.

First, I have a finished project. A friend of mine is having a baby girl. She isn't into the whole pink thing and asked for more neutral colors. 
So I came up with this.

You can see here with the sun shining through it that the colors are yellow, pale green, and white.

Here it is all folded up. I sure hope she likes it. Her baby shower is in the middle of October.

Secondly, I have started on a hooded scarf for myself. I am basically making a long scarf. Once I get it the width I want it I will stitch up the back part of it as the hood. I was shooting for it to be long enough to go over my head and wrap around my neck as a scarf with plenty of overhang.

Here is an shot of the colors. I am using Lion Brand's Homespun yarn in the colorway of  Ocean (406). I love the colors and this yarn. It is very soft and super cuddly. My only problem is that I get lost on where to put my hook sometimes. 

My third project to show is the beginnings of my patchwork blanket. I started this project when the thread on the We Love Lucy group on Ravelry first popped up but I have gotten sidetracked a bit. However, as soon as I finish my hooded scarf I will be working on this project. I don't really know how big I will make it but I have lots of scraps and yarns I can add to truly make it unique.

In my previous picture you could see a bit of my 4th Lucy Bag (I think it was number 4) I have had this bag finished for a long while now and have been using it but never posted about it. I have to say it is by far my favorite bag I have.

On top of these projects, I usually have pot holders, dish clothes, and wash clothes on my hooks. I keep my stash of cotton in a bag for quick on the go projects. I have been mostly using cream and reds as it matches my kitchen BUT I will soon be using some blues to make some wash clothes.

I hope you all are having a wonderful day. Ours is nearly over here. Our high school's Homecoming is tonight which is really exciting. Especially we only live a block and a half from the school...straight shot.

Anyway, I may not post again until Monday. 
Until then,
Be Blessed.
