Baby Sweater/cardigan

Well, yesterday, I started on another project...a baby sweater/cardigan for my son, as it is getting really cool here in the mornings and evenings. My husband and I chose a chocolate brown for him as it will go with anything that he wears. I have already started the back of it, about 1/4 of the way through the pattern. Looking forward to getting it finished as soon as I can, i am making it a little bigger for him as well, as I know he will grow into it.

Baby and yarn dont mix

Well crocheting is going somewhat slowly of late, maybe it is because my son who is 13 months, keeps wanting me and running away with my yarn. He even keeps frogging it for me, especially when I dont want him too.

On my hooks
I currently have 3 things happening on my hooks.
Hook 1, afghan for husband...that is going strong...need a few good hours to see an improvement on it...I am giving myself until the end of May to get it finished for him.
Hook 2, Pineapple shawl, half of it done, onto my second pineapple row.
Hook 3, afghan stitch cushion cover.

more yarn needed
I want more yarn...i am on a yarn restriction place by my dear husband. I really need some more yarn!!

Ripit....and i did

The Blue rose doily was giving me a headache, so I frogged it and rolled up my thread. I really liked it, but it was a bit confusing for me...since I have just started reading patterns. I might give it a go a little later on and hopefully succeed with it.

On my hook
I am doing some afghan stitch cushion covers they will be about 41x41cm, I will join the squares together but not sure about what kind of finish I will give them, I was thinking about ribbons or buttons, but I have to keep in mind that I do have a little boy and maybe buttons wouldnt be good. I cant wait till my mother comes back so I can teach her how to do them too, so that we can make some together. She might have some ideas about how to finish them.
