On my hook already...

I know I haven't done my May list but I had to jump in on 2 projects.

The first is the Drops Design Top we're doing at Yahoo crochet-a-long. I'm moderating this CAL, we started on May 1st so I had get going on it in spite of birthday mayhem. I've done 5 rows of flowers so far and am almost finished the first ball of yarn. Here's a close-up of the cursed beautiful bobble flowers. Now that I get them, they're not too bad. There's just a million of them!! We'll get there. I know we can do this!!


Second, my dh left for work this morning after telling me his boss' wife had her baby - a boy. ( I knew she was expecting, but I forgot). So, I went stashdiving and pattern diving and came up with this... 'Absolutely Prescious' from "24 hour Crochet Projects" by Rita Weiss using Caron Simply Soft in Light Country Blue. I started this during dd's speech therapy today. It should work up pretty quickly.

OK seriously this time the next post will be the May list!

Ginny, I love that pattern in the Rita Weiss book. You are the first person I know who's done it, so I am looking forward to seeing your completed project. And the photos above (flower bobbly thingy) are GORGEOUS!!!! Nice work as always! : )
