Blogger has been a little funny this last two weeks and I have been having trouble logging in and even commenting, the logging in part has been resolved, but the commenting part is still causing problems. If I haven't commented on your blog, it's not because I don't want to, it's because I can't.
Here is another piece that I finished Friday two weeks ago and it's my first A&E design. I am so happy to have this piece finished as I really struggled with lots of frogging and miscounting and such. I am really pleased how it has turned out though and I do want to coffee dye it one more time now that it's completed.
Design: Margaret Pence
Designer: The Goode Huswife
Fabric: 40ct Newcastle linen - White (coffee basted/baked)
The weather turned quite cold earlier this month and it was time to clean out the summer clothes and load the winter clothes into the wardrobe. Now Aurelia has grown quite a bit since last winter and she wanted me to crochet a new beanie for her. One afternoon's work and here is what I came up with.

Hook Size: 6mm/US J
Now I have been quite a busy stitcher and have finally finished the last square of the Red Thread series from Bent Creek. What a relief that after three years stitching on this piece it's finally finished! I realised that after the photos were taken, I had forgotten to sew on the buttons. Maybe a job to do just before I make this piece into a long pillow.

On Saturday I purchased quite a number of different yarns to complete some crochet projects I have a mind to get done when feeding the baby. That night I couldn't resist a start and made up this very quick scarf. It's so soft, but nice and chunky and warm. It will be good for our morning walks when the baby is born. I had enough wool left over, so I think I will be making a nice chunky beanie to go with it.
Design: Giant Scarf
Designer: The Art Of Crochet Series - Issue 4
Yarn: Patons Wilderness - 70% Wool, 20% Acrylic, 10% Viscose (Colour 0505)

Well, I only have 6 days to go before my due date. The house is in order, the freezer is full of meals I have prepared and all my sewing is packed to take to the hospital with me. Now the waiting game begins!
