March is finally here which means spring can't be far behind. We've been seeing lots of fat robins around lately so that is a very hopeful sign. If you've paid any attention to the weather news in the US this winter, you probably know that here in New England we have gotten more than our fair share of snow this season. Here's one of those robins perched atop one of our six-foot snow banks just waiting for winter to be over!
It has been perfect weather for crocheting thick, cozy afghans though. Here is the gray/gray baby blanket that has kept my fingers busy and is now finished and ready to pack up and mail to my newest little grand-nephew, Drake, born just the other day out in Wisconsin. Take a look...
A very satisfactory winter's work, I'd say! For this afghan, I used Vanna's Choice yarn, seven 3.5-ounce skeins of Charcoal Grey which is the darker yarn in the afghan, and eight 3-ounce skeins of Silver Heather which is the lighter yarn. The only border I put on this afghan is a single round of single crochet in the Charcoal Grey just to finish it off neatly. Once it is shipped out, I can check this off my list!
Another crocheted afghan is in the works and progressing nicely in between school work, exams, clinical days and studying. All is going well so far this semester, but I will admit that I am very much looking forward to the summer break so I can get back into my handiwork a little more. Whether or not I actually will once I have the time remains to be seen. But just having the time available will be a nice treat!
I'll post pictures of the new project as time permits. Until next time...
