I was still licking my wounds last night after the crocheted wrap debacle so I decided to crochet some simple things. A few squares later, I had my confidence back. I didn't frog the wrap yet. I decided not to make a hasty decision in my anger. Maybe it can be salvaged one day. For now it is put away.
You might recognize the squares I made. The biggest white one is the Circle of Friends square, which is extremely popular and a free pattern that can be found HERE. The other one is from an afghan pattern I ordered on http://www.epatternscentral.com/.
I made the two pretty blue squares from a pattern by the lovely and seemingly always-cheery Shropshire Sue. Her free pattern is HERE. I love Sue and wish I had half of her energy! I'd love to pop across The Pond and have some tea with her and Mr. T some day.
Then today I started a baby blanket for my neighbor. She's having her fourth baby in a couple of months! She has three little tow-headed boys right now. Maybe this one will be a girl. Since I don't know, I'm making the blanket in a pretty sparkly peach color. I sometimes babysit her boxer, Mojo. Somebody else can take the kids!
Y'all have a lovely rest of the day!
