Weekend plans

Flowers in the Snow afghan

My Flowers in the Snow afghan is officially finished. I love it, Stella loves it, it's a hit! We've had a very dreary, rainy week, I'm hoping for beautiful spring weather this weekend so I can give it the FO photo shoot it deserves!

Garter stitch scarf

Since finishing up the huge undertaking that was my first crochet project (the above gorgeous afghan) I felt like whipping off a quick and super simple garter stitch scarf using leftover blues and greys. Similar to Chris' Fall scarf, but more blue of course. FO posts to come.

  3. I hope you can hear the applause in my comment! Your afghan turned out beautifully - I still have my 80 squares to crochet together but seeing yours has re-kindled the spark to just "do it!"
