Keeping Busy

I have had a couple of busy weeks most of which I can't discuss here and now because it has to do with an upcoming hop.  In the in between times I did some knitting.  I made this hat for the local hospital cancer care unit.

It came about because I decided I should work on some of my yarn related UFO's as well as my quilting UFO's.

A couple of years ago I decided to crochet an afghan using up my scarf scraps. Once I figured out that I didn't have enough to do what I wanted I shelved it.  So last week I took the piece out of the bag it ended up in and I started to un-crochet it. RIPPPPPP

These pictures show what is left which is about half of the original piece, less the hat. The little circle on the right  is the beginning of another hat.

I also finished up another Helmet liner.  No picture of it. It looks just last the other 5 I made this year.


I started to blog to have a real record of what I have done in the areas of quilting, yarn crafts and the occasional papercraft.

Apparently I am not a very trusting person. I've been blogging since March of 2011 but in July of 2011 I started making a note each day of what I did in the crafting arena the day before.  I am such a paper person.

I really do need to order a hard copy of my blog, I think I will ask for it for a Christmas present. I'll feel so much better having the history in my hot little hand.


  1. Great idea to have a hard copy of all your blog entries, I am sure your Xmas present request will come true!
    The knitted hat will certainly be appreciated by your local cancer group and I look forward to seeing what you have been working on for the blog hop

  2. Love the un-ripping project!! And your repurposing the yarns! Great idea!

  3. Great knitted hat . Too bad you had to undo your project but I am sure it will become something else wonderful .

  4. It's good to know you're keeping busy, and it sounds like you're involved in a variety of activities. Yes, a blog book is a good idea. I have six of them now, one for each year I've been blogging. It's fun to look back to see family pics, our activities, and the things I've made. Sounds like the perfect Christmas present to me!

  5. Very clever use of yarn UFOs. Thanks to you and Pat for the helmet liners and also to your company for donating the toothbrushes to Forgotten soldiers Organization.

    I'm a paper person too. A hard copy of your blog will be a nice gift.

    Hope you are enjoying your vacation.
