Baby Blanket

blanket for jeana
Originally uploaded by Catheaven.

I originally started another blanket for a friend but the yarn just wasn't working for me. So Katherine over at Cottage yarns was showing me a blanket that she had done. I fell in love with it.
So I started this on a Friday night and had it done by Sunday night. It was quick and it was easy. The result is wonderful.
I really enjoyed this project. I also love the yarn that I used. I am already planning another one for my youngest daughter!!!

Multiplying Bunnies

Originally uploaded by Catheaven.

I found this cute very easy pattern on line to make bunnies. Since Easter is right around the corner I asked Ariana if she'd like me to make bunnies for her friends. Well that resulted in one dozen bunnies!

The pattern was very quick. From start to finish took about 2 hours. The more I did the better the bunnies looked. It took me awhile to figure out how to fold the bunnies correctly.

Project was fun and I did enjoy making them. Not to mention I was using my stash yarn!

First real attempt at Lace

shawl 3 3 size 6

This is going to be my first shawl made out of laceweight yarn. It is a KAL in the Beginning Lace group on Ravelry. The pattern is called Blue Jeans Lace Leaf Shawl
I have had to start over a few times because I was having a small problem with the stitch count. When I finally got going I realized that it seemed awfully small compared to others. I was using a size 4 needle. I frogged it and moved up to a size 6. I like it a lot better.
I'm having a lot of fun with this pattern and with lace. The yarn is Malabrigo lace. I can't wait to finish it!

First Shrug

On Saturday I finally finished my shrug! Ugh this project goes right up there with my dad's afghan of taking forever. It was a very easy pattern but very boring. It is my first wearable that I've made for myself in all the years of crocheting and knitting. I am quite happy with it. Here is a picture of it with Ariana modeling it.

Here's the back of it. I lightened the photo up to see the back easier. Ariana didn't fix the collar when she put it on

And here is the side

Overall I love this shrug. I wore it on Saturday and kept my arms nice and warm.
