A few finished projects

One of my bosses ordered an afghan for his mother, the Vanna's Choice 8-Color Afghan. I started it on March 21st and finished it on April 15th. It is made up of 48 squares instead of the original 36 called for.

I also made a few bath items from the Annie's Attic Pamper Yourself booklet. I was able to get it in PDF format from e-Patterns Central, which I love being able to do (no books lying around to trip over). So far I've made the bath mitt, body puff, and soap holder. I believe the back scrubber will be next.

Here's the soap holder made with Lily Sugar'n Cream Cream color and an H/8 hook:

And the bath mitt made with Lily Sugar'n Cream Sunshine and Cream colors and an H/8 hook:

And the body puff made with Elmore Pisgah Peaches & Creme in Gumdrop, with a bit of Fiesta since I ran out of the Gumdrop, and an H/8 hook:

The bath items were easy to make, but the body puff got a bit awkward to hold, especially since I have small hands. It was also a bit more time consuming than I would have liked but it's a good project to pamper yourself with.

A note on e-Patterns Central, when you order the PDF patterns, they are stored in your account so if you ever need them again, they are there waiting for you. They mostly have individual patterns but also have some booklets and magazines (knitting, crochet, beading, etc.). They have patterns for knitting, crochet, sewing, quilting, plastic canvas, cross stitch, and crafts.

Shorah Y'all!
