Knit and Crochet Projects

MY PROJECTS:

The crochet project I need to finish working on is the girls granny square baby sweater.  It just needs a few finishing touches on it.  I need to figure out what type of closure for the sweater, either a crocheted tie closure, buttons, or a ribbon closure.  It is taking me a while to decide on because I want the sweater to look perfect.

The other project that I am crocheting is an off white baby sweater for our church annual Christmas Fair.  I have made a lot of progress on it but I need to now work on the sleeves.  This is a project that I have never worked on before, so when I work on it I need total quiet and I need to concentrate a lot.  I usually take each step one at a time so that it isn't so overwhelming for me.  It is the first time that I have ever made a baby sweater and same thing goes for the granny square baby sweater.  I am glad that I am pushing myself to do more complicated projects because it is more challenging for me.

The next project that I am working on is a granny square baby blanket that I am working on when I go to my crochet group at my church.  We usually work all year long on different projects for our annual Christmas Fair and for Sister Jean who runs the program who gives out hats and scarves to the homeless and baby blankets to hospitals in our neighborhood.

The next project I want to work on is for myself which is going to be an Infinity Scarf.  I have have found 3 really nice patterns from Ravelry, so I have to decide which one I am going to choose and if I am going to knit or crochet it and the yarn that I am going to use and color.  I really want to work on the Infinity Scarf, but I feel guilty because I know that I have the other projects to finish up with but I might work on it tonight when I meet up with my Ravelry knitting group.  We usually meet each week at Starbucks and we all knit and laugh and have a good time.

The scarf that I am making for myself is a Knitted Infinity Scarf.  I am using 2 strands of yarn for this and I found this simple knitting pattern on Ravelry.  I am really excited that I finally found a pattern that does not look to difficult and I think the results will look pretty because the one yarn I am using has a little bit of sparkle.  The yarn I am using is from Lion Brand/Vanna White Glamour in the color Topaz and the other yarn is Caron in the color Fisherman 3062.  I will update the scarf as the project progresses.

So that is my update so far on everything!
