What I do while I watch TV at night


We can't be in our scraprooms day and night so my other hobby while watching tv is to crochet. Nuthing beats working on an afghan on the cold winter nights as it does keep you warm while you are doing it. This one I started last week on the 1st and finished it on the 7th. I used 2 different colors, a green and a cream, and they both had some unusual texture. So it actually feels soft but looks kinda chunky. As it grew I started noticing that the colors also reminded me of the John Deere colors and a few of my sons are big fans and collectors of that stuff so guess this afghan will be heading to Watertown to my sons home. Hopefully they will cherish it as something made with love by their mom.

It does have that "John Deere" feel to it!!! I am very impress with anyone that can do that kind of thing, mom kints and MIL crochets. I make HOLES when I do either...I'll stick to paper crafting!

I used to crochet when I was little girl but I don't anymore. I should teach my girls how to. I love this Louise...looks so nice and soft.

Looks so inviting. Love the colors too.
I've tried to knit, but can't get the hang of it.
