YOP Update #7

I finally figured out how to add a Gadget on here but I still didn't know where the buttons/graphics were for our little Year of Projects venture. Every time I would go to one of your sites there they would be. Well Ha! I found it. Lol. There was even one in there that was perfect for this page. My thanks to those who designed it. Now on to the update...


I've been working on a few new things this week. Some of them non yop related but seeing as it is in this year and a project I figure they can sneak in if they want. First a new scarf that will be a December birthday present. A couple Mystery projects, though I think I can figure out one of them. My Cornfield Summer Top is comming along nicely (with all the encouragement from you guys) I could do no less. Someone in the family is pregnant! So I guess I know who will be getting the Baby package. Oh, and I've been working on my granny squares. All I had of either color is 1 ball of S&C cotton so I know that whatever I make will not be very large. Anyway...Here's some pictures from this week and beyond.

 New Scarf in Mango from Caron Simply Soft

 This mystery is probably a washcloth though I think I'll use it as a hotpad.

 This one is strange and a true mystery. Looks funny lying that way I know but upright it was positively lewd. I just couldn't post it that way

 Not a very good pic and the color is way off but I finished another round of the Cornfield pattern. I think to get the length I want I may have to add another round because right now it is only 5" and I don't know what blocking will do to it.

 Here are my Granny Squares. The first thing I ever learned how to make. The color in these 2 pics didn't come out true either but the green squares are the color of my bedroom walls and the yellow is the color of my Favorite sheet set. So that with the bed nicely made-up I think these colors would be beautiful as something for my own room. I don't make many things for myself and I still don't know what to make out of these squares but I'm sure something will come to me or of course be suggested to me : ) There are only 9 of each color so not alot to work with there. I can't find anymore of these colors  for a good price down here now that they have mashed the 2 companies so this is all I will be making I think.
I don't know why this pic came out so small? Oh, well maybe I'll figure this thing out one day yet.

You've been busy this week. I love the colour of your scarf - reminds me of autumn. Will look forward to the 'reveal' of all those mysteries. If you wanted a bigger size, have you thought about introducing another two colours into your granny square blanket? Have a great week.

How about 2 throw pillows with a matching fabric backing, ir perhaps a wall hanging sampler for your bedroom wall. My husband's most prized posesseion is a shadowbox that my sil made him with part of a quilt that his mom made before she passed away.

I'm also loving the stich patterns that you are using they are so defined and make me think of fall.

I really like how you go for the great yellows. Can't wait to see how your Granny Square blanket will come out.

My goodness, you've accomplished a lot. I like the look of that mystery washcloth - makes me think of fudge ripple ice cream. And the Cornfield pattern looks fantastic!

I like the flowerish-ness of the mystery project. I've never tried a mystery project. I'm assuming I can find one on Ravelry? May have to give one a shot.

Everything you are working on is lovely--especially your Mango scarf--so warm and Autumnish looking!

I love the mango scarf and am intrigued by the grannies. It is frustrating isn't it, when you can't get the pictures to capture the color exactly?
