Recently I was rummaging through a bag of projects and I came upon this half crocheted blanket. I believe it was begun in 1999 or 2000 and I completely forgot about it. The project languished in a Wal-mart bag, one of the old blue Wal-mart bags so you know it was old. Nearly destined to be discarded or left forever in a closet until it petrified. Only to be discovered a thousand years in the future by archaeologists and used as confirmation that our society was totally incompetent and lazy. Now I just couldn't handle being the one to give the 21st century a bad rep for future generations I have decided to finish it off.
The blanket was one of my very first crochet projects. I quickly learned that a small crochet needle =tedium when one hopes to crochet an afghan. Rather than discard the blanket I think I will complete the project, now that I am a more accomplished crocheter (is crocheter a term...doesn't seem like it, oh well). I now have several crochet awards (given to me by myself, just now in my imagination) and am world renowned for my ability to crochet a very basic to mid -level scarf---watch out!
Next I have been trying my hand at the challenging (perhaps a major overstatement) world of crocheting dishrags. My mother and I are preparing a bunch of stuff for sale at a local small business. I imagine that I will also sell some at our shop, so look for those as well.
Finally I made Cordelia another pinafore smock top from One Yard Wonders. I think the entire project took me 2 hours and that includes the time spent picking up all of the bobbins that Cordelia poured on the floor and a phone conversation with Ben.

I tried to get Cordelia to model her new duds and she preferred to put a skirt over her head and sob. She may end up a theater major, heaven help us!
