Crochet Year In Review

Here is my crochet year in review with a little bit of knitting thrown in from time to time.

During the winter, I worked on two afghans plus a quilt for my new grandson, Daniel.  This is the finished wavy ripple afghan that I gave him.

This was an attempt at the afghan you see above.  After I crocheted awhile I saw it was going to be too long and narrow.  I tried adding a border but wasn't satisfied with it.  It is in a sack somewhere with more yarn to be repurposed next year or donated.

Two baby hats I knit for Daniel.

This is granny squares set with a granny ripple crochet.  This is as much as I've finished.

I made a few cotton dishcloths.  Here are just a couple of them.

I crocheted this granny square afghan as a gift for a friend's granddaughter.

This was a crochet along that started with two squares of fabric sewn together with a buttonhole stitch around the edge finished by crochet.  I just made the one square.

I get a lot of email about my Mitered Square Sock Blanket.  I started it awhile ago but once in awhile I pull it out and add a few squares.

I rewrote the tutorial to show how to join the squares and add squares on the sides.

This is my progress on it to date.

I buy fleece remnants at our local fabric shop, go around the edge with a skip stitch blade that I ordered on line, and crochet an edging on them.  After I've done a few, I donate them to our local chapter of Project Linus.

I found this photo taken this year and don't know what (or where) it is.  I don't know why there is the one plain gold row and the rest is granny stitch.

I had this photo posted on my blog for this past year, but I think that I finished most of this giant granny square afghan last year.

I might have made it larger and added this Ole Ole border from Sucrette's blog this year.

This is a pile of granny squares for my Cath Kidston granny square afghan.

Here it is finished.

I made a couple of African Flower blocks.  I'd like to make more of these in 2013.

This was a Babette Blanket that I started.  I just don't really like it, so it is a bag somewhere.

Knit entrelac scarf.  Two more skeins to go.

Here are my three attempts at the Mixed Stitch Afghan stitch along over at Little Woolie's blog.  I started this over three times and started a pillow, but there is one part of it that just won't lay flat.  So I started my own mixed stitch blanket over again......also in a bag somewhere.

Katrin over at Cattinka blog started me on Dragon's Tail scarves.  This is my first one.

I made this one as a Christmas gift for my daughter-in-law, and I have a third one on the needles.

In the fall I started this shell afghan.  

And I finished my granny stripe afghan.

I hope you have enjoyed my year in review yarn projects.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  It's been nice getting to know many of you this past year, and I appreciate your comments.  I hope you will visit again in 2013!

 Happy New Year to you!
