Really well at least my J hook was on fire this weekend lol, Well had a couple of projects I wanted to get done this week. Still working on my daughter Nellie a sweater. Dang time changed and you can tell it is so getting closer to snow falling. So I want to try to get my girls some hats done and my daughter Nellie her own scarf also. Also have a couple of projects I would love to try to finish before the new year starts. So I set up a CAL on Crochetville to see if some others would like to take the CAL challenge with me.
CAL Before 2008
Also I had a big laugh with my sister yesterday she came by and she seen this small piece of a rectangle that I had crocheted, my sister said, and now what you crocheting you just can't seem to put your hook and yarn down for nothing lol. I said, that is going to be Nellie a jacket like shroat she said, out of this. I said, girl I just getting started I said, first I have to make that rectangle bigger in order to finish it. She looked at me crazy saying you going to make a jacket out of a damn retangle. I said, YEAH lol.
This is what she was talking about lol.
Ok have to confess now. I finally read a patten and did the pattern step by step I am so used to just reading a pattern then I get overhelm and just wing it myself but, this time I have to say, I went for it. I always record all the Uncommon Threads shows that comes on DIY mainly the ones that is all about crocheting only and I went back watching them and seen the show when Crochet Nation was on there making Shrugs, Shrackets, Shroats, and Shraps. So I thought well let me give that a try went to DIY and found the pattern. Read it over and over and over so I could get it on my head then I went with with it.
So about 15-20 after my sister left that rectangle became bigger then it became a shrug
Then about 10-15 more minutes later it became a shracket
Then about 15 more minutes later I had a shroat I was oh so done and had a shroat for my daughter Nellie.
Yarn - Bernat Softee Chunky, Denim Bruyere

Now about 30 minutes after I finished and took my daughter pictures with her shroat my sister comes back over to get on my computer and she says dang I know you not done that fast. LOL
My other sister seen Nellie shroat today and asked if I can do one for her daughter my niece I said, sure I can whip that up in like 40 minutes or so.
