Finished Crocheted Projects in 2005

| 1 Comment


Reflecting back on the year 2005, I am pleased to say that I was (and still am) all wrapped up in crocheting! It's a great activity to accompany TV watching or conversations. It's relaxing and meditative, especially when a rhythmic pattern is used, and creative. It can also be challenging - like crocheting with thread (the hooks are so tiny!) or learning different styles of crochet (like Crochet on the Double and Tunisian) or experimenting with new types of crocheted items.

2005 project totals: 3 full-size afghans (1 for auction), 27 lap blankets (15 donated, 1 for me, 1 gift, 10 toward 2006 donation), 19 Valentine hearts, 10 bookmarks, 5 scarves, 4 pairs of socks, 3 stuffed turtles, 3 hats, 3 pet pads, 2 cat toys, 2 layette sets, 1 doily, 1 wimple, 1 neck warmer, 1 pair of treadmill cuffs, 1 child's blanket, and 1 cardigan/sweater. Oh, and, 1 sewing project: Hawaiian-fabric curtains.

Thanks to you, and your beautiful work, I have now attempted to crochet a lap blanket for my 5 grandkids. I called your Mom and got some advice on putting my blocks together, then looked at one of yours to see exactly how it was done. My blankets do not look near as good as yours, but with time and practice, I hope to achieve something that will be presentable someday.
Thank you for the help, even tho you did not know you were helping.
