Knitting Socks--Part 17

I finished! Mailing the socks to my daughter today because her feet are always cold. I learned a lot about knitting--and particularly about knitting with double pointed needles, modern knitting terms, and following a pattern.
Now this is my new project. It's a crocheted lap blanket (a gift) crocheted in one piece. Yes, that means there are lots of strands of yard hanging down as I change color every twenty stitches. And each square is a different stitch. I call this project "Jewels". When finished it will be 4 1/2 feet by 5 feet with all the color swatches enclosed with a black border.

Do you have a crafty project going? If so, what?



  1. Oooh, I bet you could knit a purse! Nice work, Anny.

    1. :-) Thank you, Julia! And yeah, I did that once...

  2. Oh, I've always got a bunch of stuff on the needles (and now hooks). Nothing I want to work on, though.

  3. Everyone loves it when people get together and share views.
