Today I finished the climbing shells baby blanket for Little Miss Camryn Nicole. She's the newborn at my church. If you're interested in making this blanket, you can find the pattern here. It's one that can only be used for gifts or charity, so no Etsy. There is also a preemie version of this on the pattern.
I had to make a change for my grandma's shawl. I still intend to make a shawl out of that wonderful yarn, but my mom and I discussed it and we both think a plain shawl would be best for my grandma. So, I'll be making her a black shawl. That way she can wear it with more of her things.
I also checked You Tube for winding hanks by hand and found a fabulous video or two, but since I'm changing the yarn, I won't have to wind those just yet.
After completing my grandma's shawl, I'm going to have to rest my hand and my back. Both have been a little sore lately and I know why - I've got to make sure my posture is correct while crocheting and that I don't hold the yarn too tightly. The hand that is sore is the one that doesn't even do the crocheting!
So, even if I'm silent on my blog, you'll know that I'm making grandma's shawl!
