Loved this stitch first time using it love that it closes up the stitches very well hiding the wholes from the stitches.

As you can seen didn't get that much done still working to at least complete the retangle so I can go to the shrug then to the shacket then the shrap so have a lot to complete here.

Here is a couple of my WIP and WIM (WIP) means work in progress, (WIM) what's in mind for those that don't know.

Here is a start of a blanket I would like to do for my niece. It's a name blanket a blanket that will have her name in it. So far this is what I got done will update you all when I am completely done with her name. Her name will be the center part of the blanket.

(What's In Mind)
I couple of projects that I know will take a lot of time but, would like to do. I found a ebay seller on ebay that sell crochet/knit/ and cross stitch pattern graphs and I just had to get this Dora here as you can see below.

Dora is for my daughter Nesa. I have all the yarn I need here all the colors just have to put my H-hook to work on it. I like graph patterns after tempting to do it with a cross-stitch pattern I just want to keep doing it, it comes oh so easy to me. I was also looking on the net to find my own PC Stitch program for my computer so then in the future I can do my own thinking about getting it for my birthday next month. I would get it for myself for Christmas but, due to me buying lots of things for my girls that I would be able to get it until next month. A birthday gift to myself.:)

Also here is another one, Pooh. This one is for my little daughter Nellie. I have most of the color yarn I need. I probably have all the colors just haven't checked all my yarn boxes.

The pattern asks for Red Heart which make since to me it's what I would have used anyway for a blanket.:)

The ebay seller has a lot more cartoon characters that I liked like spiderman I would love to get to make a blanket for my nephrew, also piglet I would like to get for my niece, bettyboop I would love to make for myself to throw on my futon in my room. She has lots that I liked but, those is the main ones I would one day try to make but, for now would like to at least start then finish the ones I got now.:)

She list the colors to every body part and list the hook size and yarn you will need. You have to have a color printer in order to get to print it out. It is printed out on the graphs as you get it. :) What she explains is that the pattern she listed can fit a toddler bed for the Dora I have to chain 161 and that is with a H - hook so I know that will be able to fit a toddler bed or bigger then a toddler bed for the Winnie Pooh chain 145 still with a H - Hook.

So hopefully you will see update on my progress as I move along with the Dora and Pooh.:)

Ok there you have it a quick update. Thanks to all that kept my daughter and I in your prayers and thoughts. Just glad to be back home and us all back to ourselves:)

Now have to go get my crocheting on:)

Take care everyone.

The shirt looks great! Good luck with the graphs! I've done 2 graph blankets before and they took me quite awhile...when it comes to afghans I am a slow poke!

Nice work on the shirt. I'm glad you said what color it is because on the computer it almost looks blue. You are going to be a busy or should I say busier with all the projects you have lined up. Good luck!
