More FO's

This is a scarf from the Crochet Pattern A Day calendar. The Cluster Craze Scarf. I made it from Hobby Lobby "I Love this Yarn" in red. It is for my mom.

This is my Fat-Bottom Bag from SNB Happy Hooker. I finally made it. I've had the handles and yarn set aside for months. I like it. I still need to line it and embellish. I'll post a pic when it's completely done.
Works in progress. I started knitting my first scarf. It is the Go-Go Garter stitch scarf from Stitch 'N Bitch the Knitters Handbook. It's going okay. I've had a few problems, but I'm getting the hang of it now.
And I am also working on a scarf from my Japanese Hello Kitty book. I'm not very far along yet, but I love the color of this yarn. I am using my Japanese double sided crochet hooks for the first time as well.

I've been busy

These are the roses I got for Valentine's Day from my boyfriend. I took this picture today, I think they still look very pretty.
Here's what I've been doing:

This scarf is from my Crochet Pattern a Day Calendar. It is the Scrap Happy scarf from January 8th. I just picked out all the green from my stash and double stranded with some white.

This scarf above is the Snuggly Scarf from January 16th on my calendar. I made it out of Homespun in Key Lime Green. It is for my sister.

And then....I knit a garter stitch swatch. This was my very first time to knit ever. There are a lot of mistakes.

So I decided to knit another one. This one only has one mistake. I just need to concentrate more. The only mistake was when I was finishing the last row before I started to bind off, that's when I decided it was time to bind off. I am teaching myself from one of Debbie Stoller's Stitch 'N Bitch books.

This first picture is the Waterfall Throw that I made for my aunt. It was supposed to be her Christmas present, but was not finished on time. It is made with Homespun yarn in Russet. I really like it. I made one for myself last year. It's really warm.

This picture is of some crocheted flowers that I made. They are 100% wool, so I think I am going to try to felt them, if I ever get around to it. And I'm going to put pinbacks on them. Two of them are for my sister. Two are for me, and the other pink one, I'm not sure yet.
Well, that's what I've been doing. I'm also working on a scarf right now, and the Fat-Bottomed Bag, so stay tuned.

It's been a while since I updated. Two weeks. I've got several projects going on right now. Hopefully I will finish the big one this week. I am working on the Waterfall Throw in homespun yarn for my aunt. I'm down to my last two half skeins. And I am working on the Snuggly scarf from the Crochet-Pattern-A-Day calendar for my sister, and I am about halfway done with my first Fat-Bottomed Bag from the Happy Hooker book for myself. It is the January/February project for the Happy Hooker Crochet Along. I will try to post pictures tomorrow. It's late, I gotta go to bed now, but tomorrow is another day.

And I would like to add that I've been watching Knitty Gritty a lot, and I am almost ready to knit something.
