Rose Garden ‘Ghan

6/6/08

I have been wanting to get a collection of afghans made for when situations arise such as births, hospital visits, etc, I am able to quickly get an afghan to that person. I have 2 already and the Rose Garden ‘Ghan will be the third.

I found the pattern in the May/June 2008 issue of Crochet Today!.

I will be using Caron Simply Soft, Dark Sage and an I hook. It’s a lovely pattern and I cannot wait to start it.

Framed Roses

My newest project that I’m working on is a doily called Framed Roses. It’s from the House of White Birches Collectible Doily Series and it was designed by Lois Waldschmidt.

I’m using Frosty Green, Ecru and a light pink size 10 crochet thread and a size 7 hook.

I miss working with thread and making lace. It was strange, however, working with the steel hook and thread after working with the N hook and bulky yarn. 🙂
