Afghan for Auntie!

I started working on this afghan over a year ago and got most of it done before I ran out of yarn. I bought the yarn, but never got back to working on it again until a year later. Finished it up and sent it to my Aunt Janice for her birthday in January. The pattern for this is "Wind Chime Afghan" and can be found over at Lion Brand Yarn. Though I did like the colors for it in the original pattern, blue is my Aunt's favorite color so used Vanna's Choice Yarn in White, Sapphire and Denim. I just realized now that I didn't do the edging around it, so I guess next time I visit her I can bring along some yarn and finish it up.

Hat 56!

Happy Valentine's Day! Here is hat 56 for mom! Simple hat using a HDC stitch and just some Caron simply soft eco in Chocolate and some pretty white yarn that has a slight sparkle and texture joined to form a neat design with a little bit of shine. I was able to make this hat rather quickly because of the joined yarn and I really like the way it came out.

Hat 55

For hat 55 I used 2 different yarns held together for the top. The colorful one was a puffy ball yarn I had and I just held it with a Vanilla Caron Simply soft yarn. I ran out of the color yarn so just finished it up with the Caron yarn on the bottom. All done with a HDC stitch.
