The birds are tweeting and things all around us are starting to turn that spring and summer green color. I hope we actually 'get' a spring time this year and don't go right into 80 degree weather. I love to go out on the deck when it's in the 60's or low 70's and knit or crochet. It's always so lovely with a cool breeze and some iced tea to sip on, don't you think?

Here is the progress I've made on the afghan I'm crocheting for my son and his bride to be. I have it about half completed and have about 5 to 6 more weeks to finish it, so I better get down to business. It's the shell stich and I"m using Rowanspun Chunky tweed in a color I think will go with just about any decor the lovebirds can dream up.

I'm enjoying my crocheting so much these days and in the process, I'm trying to get better at each project I tackle by watching my ends to make sure they stay straight, counting as I go along to be sure I have everything the way it should be, and weaving in any ends so that they not only won't come out (or so I hope) but they will also be invisible.

I've been crocheting lots of coasters and for some reason, I love doing them. I try all sorts of patterns but have a couple of favorites so far. I think that trying all these different type patterns out helps me to be a more observent crocheter in the long run. So until next time, dear people, crochet on!
