UFO/Scrap Busting Report - 8/12/08

I know today's is the 13th, but this is a report of yesterday's UFO and Scrap Busting status. I drove home from my mom's yesterday and by the time I unloaded, unpacked, went through a week's mail and caught up on a few things, I was too tired to write.

There are now 11 rows assembled on the Granny's Daughter afghan. This is probably the most time consuming UFO I targeted for completion this month.

Monday, I started turning scrap yarn balls into a hat. I crocheted on it in the bank lobby while my mom took care of her banking. I crocheted on it at my niece's house while 2 great-grandmas met their new great-grandson, Jackson, born last Thursday, August 7.

I'm crocheting in a continuous spiral, attaching a new ball of yarn whenever the current one runs out. No worries about whether I have enough yarn left for another round. I'm crocheting over the yarn ends as I go so there won't be a lot of finish work.

When I was taking these pictures at my mom's yesterday, my little brother decided that my feet were more interesting than my crochet.

  1. Sounds like your mom is doing well -- that's good news.

    Do you have a pattern to share for the spiral crocheted cap -- I have lots of little leftovers and the look of all the colors together is great.

    Happy crafting!
