So I finished Spongebob!!!! I think he turned out great! I didn't want to buy a pattern so he is made by looking at pictures and watching the show. LOL The recipient LOVES him. He was smiling from ear to ear while hugging him. Makes all the hard work worth it. :)
I have to finish 2 dog sweaters and a spongebob doll before Christmas Eve morning. I have one sweater halfway done and spongebob is halfway done. *WHEW* I have a lot of knitting to do. :) I also want to make my mom some coffee cozies by the 23rd. I made her one last Christmas and she told me the other day that she can only use it around Christmas and needs some for year round. Well I'm off to knit!
I have been working on my Husband's blanket for a good 3 years on and off. He has been asking for it ever since our daughter was born. I started again on it last week and remembered why I put it down in the first place. It takes 30 mins to do one row!! I only have 2 stars left to do so hopefully it will be done by Father's Day. Well off to double crochet land...
I was looking at baby booties this weekend to make for my pen pal's new baby. I found some I liked but wanted to try my own. I hope this pattern makes sense because I wrote it after I made the booties.
