Black Tennies

Here is a preview pic of things you'll be seeing over the next week or two.  One of which I won't show til I get it blocked (the one hanging on the basket).



First the black sneaker booties:

Several components together.

The bootie builds in layers.


Shoestring.

By George...



I think she's got it!!!

I posted about this beautiful sweater pattern a long, long time ago.
(See here.)
But I never could get the sizing right, so I took a break.


Then the other day I started it up again.  My last attempt
has apparently not been so bad, because I decided it
was actually about the right size.  In the picture,
you can see my swatch that wasn't really
very helpful, one of my more sizable attempts
that isn't long enough, and the most
recent is wrapped around the 
crochet thread ball.

I think I can rework the larger of my attempts
into a nice scarf.  So that makes me happy.
I feel that all that hard work was not for
naught!!!

Mostly, I am very happy to crochet
merrily away on the sweater so I
can actually get to wear it some day.

Have any of you been working on a
project that you just can't quite get
to work?  

I'd LOVE to hear your story!
Leave it in the comments!!!

Flowers of 2012

Our internet has been off for over a month.  I'm just now back on.  I have been busy around the house with a little crochet here and there.  I need to photograph a few things.

In the meantime, here are some photos of my flowers.
