Blue Rose Doily

Well my mother sent me some tread from Fiji, the tread is so small but I am having fun using it. Even if the pattern is giving me trouble. I am doing the blue rose doily from the Annies Attic site that was up recently. I am having a hard time reading the pattern and have to keep refering to the picture of the finished one. Hopefully, it will turn out great, if not then I better frog it before my mother comes home. She cant stand me frogging!

Elmo Afghan

Here is the Elmo afghan that I made for my son, and what I got the Highly Commended award for.
This is a close up of the head.

I will get some better photos of the afghan on later when I have the time.

finished projects...and some stuff

Yesterday, my husband and I went into town and I brought some yarn. Maroon to continue on his afghan and some multicolour pink yarn and a fun fur. These are to make a skinny scarf and something else for my girlfriend who lives near Melbourne, and her birthday is soon (Valentines day). Today I finished off the skinny scarf. I made it using just the multi colour pink and a size 9mm hook, so it has the lacy look about it. It is only 7ch across and long enough for her... I am thinking about making a little hat for her, but dont know if a good pattern for her...something lacy and simple would be great. Any hints would be great!
Also I am planning on making either a neck warmer or smaller scarf for her.
If you havent already guessed, I miss my friend so much...hopefully she will read this and move back up here!! Big hint Nessa!!!

Elmo afghan
I finished off the Elmo afghan last week. I havent taken a photo of it yet, but have washed it and blocked it to my best effort. I am planning on entering it into the local show here in my hometown. Will let you know if I do and how I go at it.

Which Other World Are You Secretly From?

World of Glaciers
Ice, snow, mountains... you are a glacier dweller.

Sometimes people see you as distant or

apathetic, but it's only because their minds

don't work on a level as high as yours.

My werewolf breed...Therian
Therian: You are human, more or less, but you have

very strong emotion ties to the wolf, and you

share a common spiritual bond with the entire

lupine species.
