A Short Break and a Gameplan

After finishing the kids’ Halloween costumes I am taking a short break to read a library book that is overdue – Wild by Cheryl Strayed.  The movie comes out in December but I wanted to read the book first.  I was going to renew it but it’s on hold by another person so I can’t.  I didn’t want to return it before reading it though because I knew that I would never check it out again if I did.  I started reading it yesterday and am half-way through it.  That’s pretty typical for me.  If I start reading something I don’t usually do anything else until I’m done.

After my short break I need to make the baby afghan in payment for my logo work.  I’ll be creating a new pattern with it so not only will the recipient receive a hand crocheted afghan, but they will also have had the pattern for it designed specifically for them.  I think once I get it done and complete the PDF I’ll also send them a copy of it for good measure.  I need to get it done and delivered before Thanksgiving.  I’ve been thinking about the design I want and looking at some books for inspiration. I know the edging that I want to do but still haven’t decided on what to do for the body.  The Ribbon and Cross Christening Afghan is rows of shells so I don’t wan to do that.  I was thinking about a basket weave stitch, but I’m not sure if that will go with the edging I want to do.  So I’m still mulling that over this week as I read.  Once I get that done, I think I want to make up a few quick Christmas presents.

My poor Granny Square Project keeps getting pushed back.  I WILL FINISH IT! Once I get this baby afghan and Christmas presents finished, it’s back to the Grannies until they are done!  I have 4 months left of squares to do, which means 8 squares.  Then I’ll have the arduous task of joining all those squares.

I also have pictures of Halloween costumes that I will post here shortly.  I had started to write-up the pattern I created for my son’s costume and want to get that finished and for sale somewhere in there too!
