Crafting On - And It's DONE!!!

Linking up with Nicole at Frontier Dreams and Crafting On.

I have been pretty quite over here on my blog. The past few months have been busy but the past 2 weeks have just been crazy. Most of all that is done for now and I'll blog later this week to tell of it. Needless to say, when life ends up that busy it sure does cut into how much crafting time I have:)
I did get some done here and there, even setting up a time to meet with my sister in law so I would have an excuse to do a little stitching. So I don't have a lot to show off this week, but I do have this...
The 'John Deere' inspired baby blanket is done!!! I'd like to say it got done before the baby made his way into the world, but that's okay. It finally warmed up in our area, so I'm sure the baby isn't hurting to stay warm:) I'm hoping to deliver it to the family this week.

And to those that follow my blog and may be wondering how my first sock is coming along.. Well, I realized that I completely ignored a step while knitting the heel flap/shaping. I could have tinked back 16 rows, but I ended up just pulling the whole thing out. Now I'm just about done with the leg and will be starting the heel flap again. Oh well, I will get some practice at it at any rate:)

Off to see what you all have been up to this week!!


  1. Congratulations on getting the John Deere blanket finished! It looks great. Sorry you had to rip out your sock; look forward to seeing it down the road. Enjoy your week!

  2. Your blanket looks amazing! I love the detail of the yellow rows they almost look like connected yellow flowers. I am sure they will love the blanket and it is great it will match the theme of their room for the baby! I had to frog a sock before too, it hurts a bit to have to tear it apart but once you get started again it knits up quickly and you are happy you did. Hope second time is a charm knitting up your sock!

  3. All the best with your socks. If you've not looked at Winwick Mum's blog pg I'd recommend it. There's tutorials and help, sock a long etc. I've decided to buy her book and give her method a try. Cathy x
