What knit or crochet projects are you working on right now?

I have a couple blankets that I need to put trim on & another that I have to finish cross stitching then assemble.

I just recently finished my first large project, a blanket for my oldest daughter. I was quite proud of myself, it turned out nicely! I am also crocheting some outfits for some small bears for family members. Very fun, but challenging! I have finished 3 out 5 outfits so far. And lastly I am halfway through a nice thick scarf for my mother who lives in the snowy midwest!

i just finished an afghan that I'd been wanting to make for like 3 years. It came out so beautiful. I need to get some pics up of them.

I think I'm gonna end up on a flower, edging, doily kick to add to my layouts because I think that is such a cute look!

I am about 1/2 way finished with a twin size blanket/afghan of the Texas State Flag. I also just bought yarn to make a shaw for my granmother.

Thank you; I used Aunt Lydia (Coats & Clark) Shimmer with a size C hook. Now I'm making some with Lion Brand's Glitterspun, again using a C hook. One ball of the Shimmer made 48 flowers and one skein of the Glitterspun will make 45 flowers.

OMG those flowers are so cute on the layout! I have a TON of crochet thread in every color of the rainbow that I can't wait to put to use in edgeings and flowers to use on my layouts! Even small doilies as backers for flowers!

I just started a blanket this weekend that I want to give to some family friends of ours who just moved into a new home and they have a ton of new furniture. I pulled the colors from their rug in their den for an afghan and I'm so afraid that it's coming out more 70's retro rather than Tuscan villa feeling. LOL I'm hoping that once I get it all put together that it will look better.

I'll post pictures when I finish.

I'm going to PM you a link that demonstrates how to do the Kitchener Stitch. You had me thrown for a loop (been Crocheting for 30+ years and have never heard of this stitch) until I discovered this has to do with Knitting. Anyway, hope this will help you so you can complete your project.

I'm a new knitter. I've finished a few scarves and one baby blanket for my new niece. I scrapped about it (see below). I'm currently working on another baby blanket for my cousin who's expecting her first daughter. Nothing fancy, just a garter stitch. I wanted to try a nice pattern, but it didn't make any sense to me. I'm going to take it to my knitting group and see if they can help me figure it out.

I actually sat in bed tonight and started work on ... well, I had no idea what it was going to be when I started, I just needed SOMETHING to do in bed, so I grabbed a hook and a ball of nifty yarn that a spinner friend gave me.

I think, with the width I made, that I'm going to just keep switching out yarns every few inches or so and make a really obnoxious scarf out of it.

I'm now on the third skein of a shawl that I started when I realized my first pickup wasn't really going anywhere, lol! As soon as it's finished, I have a gorgeous camisole pattern that my daughter wants me to do, but I might just do another shawl in a different yarn and color to have some choice.

Love the flowers on the layout, can you share the pattern for those, I've never done a flower before.

Right now I'm working on some dishcloths and an afghan for a friend of my mom's. I got her couch pillow and matched up colors for that and am doing stripes with a shell pattern.

I'm new to this site & while looking I found this forum. In addition to scrapping I like to knit sometimes for change. I just got done making my mom an angel blanket for christmas it took me about 3 weeks to make & actually I wasnt able to give to her until the beg. of Jan. Im still trying to work on a xmas blanket for 2 years now but its in panels & Im not a big fan.

I like doing stuff in panels cuz your work seems to go faster... but then you have to put them all together... and that's a pain. Good luck!

I think that is the worst part for me is putting it all together because I cannot see the whole piece and I feel like I'm just starting over again and again. This is actually the first paneling I've done so maybe that has something to do with it too; I dunno.

Got a pattern for a nifty crocheted beret today that'll be fun to play with (I may use that black and purple I picked up on sale, doubled).

That should be my next project after the second shawl, since I should finish the first one tonight.

I have never tried to crochet before, it looks a lot harder to me then knitting. How long do you think that the beret will take you to make? Have you ever made a beret before? I knit at work because at home I get to busy & I try to scrap.

Crochet is actually easier than knitting -- my buddy spent a few days here and taught me how, finally -- but both have really different uses.

Haven't made a beret before, but the pattern is ridiculously easy. It's little more than single crochets and slip stitches -- all the "neat" comes from the yarn texture.

Got the first shawl done, started on the second, and I have to say that the Moda Dea Dream yarn crochets like, well, a dream. It is WONDERFUL stuff, soft, fluffy, fuzzy, and yet isn't splitting or catching on the hook.

And I got distracted with other stuff, so I only have about 10" of my new shawl done. Problem is, that netting pattern just goes kinda slow to begin with, and I can't do too much at once.

I havn't been on the site in quite a while. How cool to come back and see a knit/crochet thread. I am currently working on a red sweater for my mom for mother's day. She is a "Red Hatter" so I'm doing it in a brick red and then I'd like to find a Red Hat pin to put on it when I'm done. There are a lot of things I'd like to knit.

I've started a blanket I read about in "Knitting For Peace". It's the Warm Up America one. It consists of 49 7"X9" squares with various patterns. It's an ideal thing for someone who gets bored easily. ME! lol

I'm also teaching my 10 yr old son to knit so he can knit a blanket for cats in rescue. Cute idea...also from "Knitting for Peace".

What's on my hook and needles...
Hook: afghan for a wedding in November (tried a pattern from Lion that didn't work, so it's in the process of being ripped and reworked - this is the only pattern I've gotten from their website that didn't work)
Needles: dishcloths for a barter

Also, have waiting for me the binding on a quilt(for craft bazaar at church - it's donated), and three other quilts are at the quilter waiting to come home and get finished (one of those is for a wedding in January)

Thank you:D

This is the first one I made with this pattern, but I have knitted other things before I made this. It came in a "recepie" book(sorry, I'm norwegian so I don't know all the english terms for things) with a lot of other great garments. And the alpaca wool is so soft and fun to use, I would really recomend for everyone to try it!!

I'm working on another doll blanket in double crochet with a hear motif of skipped stitches on it. Well, it's not totally skipped stitches, after I do a double crochet I do a chain stitch then skip the stitch under the chain and do a double crochet in the next stitch.

I'll see if I can post pics of the afghan and scarf since you can see the design very well in these two.

You paid 35 for the pattern?

I don't know that would be the best babyshower gift ever!

I just finished two baby blankets but my puppy got ahold of my camera cord to download pictures so until I get a new on I'm out of luck posting pics! Getting ready to start a jacket for myself.

Hi All.. here is the blanket i just got done for my grand daughter. Its crocheted with two strands of yarn, rose and peach.(her favorite colors). I actually did this blanket a day. I started it yesterday and finished it tonight. I used a jumbo crochet hook. It came out really nice and it seems with the bigger stitches the blanket came out very soft.

Hi Bran,
I did a double crochet Its a series of stitches, really easy, double crochet chain one double crochet in one stitch , then skip two stitches, and repeat. Thats on the base chain, then once you get through the first row, you repeat that 1 dbc 1 chain 1 dbc in each of the previous rows chain one.. really simple. Im working on another one, in green and blue for my grandson.

I crochet, and have a few friends who are pregnant. So working on some baby blankets right now. One down, three to go. Must be something in the water.

I am working on a throw blanket. I love the color of yarn I chose! It's the Red Heart brand Peruvian Print- it's funky, but really pretty!
