Don't faint, but I have some actual finished projects to share!
First off, after 4 months of crocheting a row here and a row there....I finished Laurel's cardigan. The pattern is here and was super easy. I just love everything that Alicia Paulson creates. I think that Laurel liked it too (either that, or she was just fascinated by that extra cute girl looking back at her).
Next is a shower wrap that was born out of necessity. You see, my bathroom is not just my bathroom anymore. It happens to be the hub of activity each morning. There are a total of 3 bathrooms in our house, but only one gets used- mine (oh yeah, I guess it is Carl's too). I am all about "being open" and "celebrating our God-given bodies" and all- but I just felt it was time to be a bit more discreet, if for no other reason than for my own personal esteem.
You know that feeling you get when you can feel someone is staring at you? I think it wouldn't creep me out so much if I were more, ahem, decent. "Mommy, why is it all lumpy on your buns?" "What are all those blue stripes on your legs?" "Is that floppy skin on your stomach where I used to live?" "Mom did you remember to exercise today?" The honesty was just too much and the world is a much better place hidden under some soft white terrycloth. The pattern is from Simple Sewing with a French Twist, and was indeed very simple. I haven't had the opportunity to make anything else from the book, but I have several pages doggie-eared.
Also simple is this. I am feeling too lazy to write it out again...but it is definitely worth a try!!
