New Crochet Offerings

I've been crocheting this summer although not as often as I might have intended.    It's just been too darned hot!!!!  I am more than ready for a real autumn and all the cool weather it can bring with it, to say nothing of being ready for a cold and snug winter season!  However, I have been working on another baby ripple and here is some of my progress.

I am almost finished and at present I'm putting 3 rows of hdc on each side in each of the 3 colors used in the blanket.  I have one side completed and it looks really lovely, now for the side with all of my color ends to weave in and it'll be a 'wrap' so to speak, both literally and figuratively.  :)

I've also begun a baby shells blanket using Caron Simply Soft for the first time and a size I crochet hook.  I'm loving how soft this yarn is to work with and the definition that the rows of shells have as I go along.  Actually, I'm further along than this photo shows but haven't taken another picture recently.  I will put one in my next post, I promise.

I do think that now that summer is supposedly over (that's the biggest joke yet), I will be picking up my crochet hook daily rather than semi-weekly so there will be more pictures to show you.  I certainly wish all of you happy autumn days with gorgeous leafy colors and apple cider, pumpkins, and all your favorite things.
