It seems that I am finally back to blogging regularly, after a very long time of only posting here sporadically. I really do enjoy blogging. It helps me stay focused on my projects. So, I am going to try to continue posting weekly.
I've actually done quite a bit over the past week, and will hold a bit back for another post. This one will be about some on going WIPs.
Here's the crocheted baby blanket. It almost finished- fully assembled, and being edged. I think it will require more blocking than I had hoped, but over all I'm pretty pleased with it.
I have finished the second section of the primula shawl. It's hard to photo-document the progress of a circular shawl. Here is a small section stretched out over a dinner plate so you can see a bit of the pattern.
This project reinforce my usual thoughts about not posting gift projects until they are complete and gifted. Last week I was telling Rita, my co-worker for whom this shawl is intended, about the quilt I am working on, and she asked for pictures. I had forgotten I had blogged about the shawl, and gave her my blog address. Shortly after I realized what I had done, and now she knows about the shawl. She was thrilled. I guess it was almost as good as surprising her with a finished shawl, but not quite the same. For those of you who also see my projects on Ravelry, the shawl is entitled "crazy lady" because that is my nickname for Rita.
Speaking of the quilt, I've worked another log cabin square for it. I will need six more this size if I want to make the entire front of the quilt in log cabin squares. I am definitely leaning in that direction right now.
I have a couple of small FO's since I have blogged last, too. I think I am going to write up a pattern for one and post it here another day.

babies love bright colors so that one will be a favorite :). My daughter has loved red since she was an infant. :) The shawl is looking so pretty, I know it will be beautiful when you are finished and it is blocked and that your friend will absolutely love it. :) That quilt is coming along very nicely, don't forget to get a picture up when it is finished, I have a feeling it will be fairly soon. :)
