Craft Planning!

I am a multi-crafter.  I'll admit it.  I always have a minimum of two projects that I'm working on, usually somewhere more along the lines of five projects.  What I'm doing now is no exception. 

I am currently working on:

  • an adaptation of a wonderfully fun afghan~ using every bright color that I have in my stash.  I'll post pictures when I'm further along, and you can find the pattern here:  
  • a fun hat, which I haven't decided if I'm keeping for myself or gifting yet....  Pattern here: 
  • creating a pattern for a d20 amigurami for my gaming geek friends child for christmas~ too fun!
  • scrapbooking with my daughter- we just got some pictures and we work everyday on something.  yesterday we picked out some stickers and tomorrow we are going to look at books, paper and more stickers.  Soon, we'll be ready to start crafting some pages!
  • a basketweave afghan, done in squares.  I've made my own pattern for this and I've been working on it for a long time.  Eventually I'll finish it.  I'm about 1/4 of the way done.  At least winter is coming and it will seem easier to work on an afghan when you can have its warmth spread over you!
  • another afghan, also done in squares.  Same deal, except its this lovely pattern from Bernat:              Geometric squares with stripe and diamond accents. Works up quick in your favorite Bernat chunky-weight yarn.
I have plans for many more projects too!  I have christmas presents to craft, which will include slippers, scarves, hats, trivets, jars of cookie mix, and then our annual paper craft which we make and give to each one of the relatives.  Last year we made handprint turkeys for thanksgiving and three dimensional snowmen for christmast.  This year, I think we're gonna make toilet paper roll turkeys and paper snowmen.  All I can say is it's a good thing I'm on maternity leave until after the holidays!

Tomorrow, I have solid plans to have finished the model for the triangles that will make up the d20, and finish the lattice hat.  I only have about 8 more rows, and it works up pretty quickly.  I'll post pictures when I'm done!!
