Quickly


I finished Little Man's sweatr, blocked it, and it stinks.  No, seriously, it smells like a wet sheep. I washed it a second time in baby shampoo (you have a lot of that when you have a baby), and it still stank.  So, last night, hubby dunkedo it once again into a bucket of water, this time with about half a cup of vinegar.  I hope that takes the smell out.  He then ran more cold water into the bucket, dumped some Soak in it, and when I get home, I hope it will no longer smell.

In the meantime, I told you that I wanted a quick project before I started my ultimate sweater quest.  So, here are the things I started:




These are miniature hearts ando flowers.  The flowers are for a Valentines wreath, and the hearts are for a bunting.  Obviously,  more hearts are needed.

This is my hat.  The color is more purple than the picture, but that is not half of it.  I decided I wanted a matching set, so I have 2 more skeins, one for a cowl, and one for mittens.  I plan on using these on the cowl:


Hubby bought me these gorgeous buttons for Christmas, and the 3 large ones are going on a cowl.  The small one on the right will adown the hat, and the iridescent one on the left will grace something else.  I have also been contemplating this:



I made this swatch before Christmas,  and I want to make Princess a sweater.  We are having a tea party in April, and I want to make her something elegant.  I have 4 or 6 skeins of the pink and 2 in a bluish grey.  I have not quite decided on what to do just yet, but the idea is percolating.   What are you working on?

You do such an amazing job!!! I just learned how to crochet a few months ago and have been working on my first blanket.

Congrats! Blankets are great with crochet - thick and warm, and you really learn a lot.
