My Crochet UFO Container

It's been a long time since I've posted.  It has been a busy summer, and I don't do quite as many yarn projects in the summer as I do in fall and winter.  Welcome to my new followers and subscribers.  I'm glad you're here and that you waited so long for me to post.  

I have been doing some cleaning and sorting, and I thought I'd share one of my containers of yarn with you.

There are a lot of UFOs in here plus lots of pretty yarn. 





I really like Simply Soft yarn for afghans and projects that I know we (and the cat) will be using.   Simply Soft is made by Caron and can be found at a lot of different retail outlets.  I love all of the pretty colors that are available.



I thought maybe you would enjoy a peek inside of my container of yarn and UFOs.  This is a Flower Petal Pillow that I started from a pattern over at Attic 24. 


Here are 3 African Flowers that I made ages ago.  The pattern for these is on Ravelry, and there is a You Tube video available if you just google African Flowers. 


I don't remember what the left motif is.  I think it is from the book Crochet Motifs that is on my shelf.
The motif on the right is from a free Red Heart pattern called Pokey Dot Throw.

This is my Crochet Shell Afghan in progress.  You can find it in my blog post titled Crochet Shell Afghan Tutorial.  I've made a little progress on it since my last post about it.



This is a Granny Square Ripple afghan that I have started.  I really like this one and would like to get back to working on it again.


This one is a Wavy Ripple Afghan.  I've made a couple of these for baby gifts.  The pattern is written by my daughter.  I will find it and post the directions soon.


These are just knit squares using my leftover yarn balls.  Cast on 25 stitches and then knit back and forth for 50 rows.  I'm not sure that I really had a plan for these.  I was just looking for a simple knit pattern to use up my leftovers.  
 
I hope you are finding some time to crochet or knit a little today.  

Thanks for stopping by!  
I'll try to not stay away so long next time.  
I appreciate your visit.

Once in awhile I get an email asking about something on my blog.  I cannot answer you if you are an anonymous blogger or if you are set as a no-reply blogger.  Click here for a link to a great tutorial showing how you can fix this.
  I love your comments and questions and would love to be able to reply!

  1. Hi LuAnn! I haven't heard from you in ages! Looks like you have a lot of projects and yarn going on there! Me too! I completed a ripple throw for my sister, and working on a 'neat ripple' throw right now...all colors, and I love that pattern, it is from Lucy of Attic24! She is the best. Want to make some little flowers and leaves, or flowers and a larger green petals behind, secure with a little button in the middle, one on each side...don't know if at the peaks/valleys or just random, but thought it would be different! I love to crochet, and I am learning to knit. I just just a bit more to go on my first practice project...been put through the wringer with it, but it will be fine.....a scarf. Want to get everything down pat before investing in better yarn to make unusual scarves! Take care, and nice to see you around again. Sandy
