Hooking on Sunday

My first entire day off in 10 days - I made the most of the cooler weather and spent most of the day in my PJ's with a crochet hook in hand.

So the Red Sparkly number just needs some ends woven in and the closure organised then I can call it a finish.

This blankie is a project which has not seen the light of day in more than a year, but I pulled it out Wednesday last week when I needed a new go anywhere project. It has grown by six rounds since then - I took it to NCB and my Saturday knitting group where I managed a couple of rounds between socialising. Today I have put another three rounds on, creeping closer to a finish.

Oh, and I made some giant flowers for the other red project I started last month - just 10 more flowers and I'll have enough to finish that project.

The flowers are the same pattern I made in miniature from the tutorial shared over at Happy in Red.

Playing along in Pyjama Party Sunday.

Hope your week is full of creative opportunities (I'm hoping for a few finishes).

You had a very productive day. I was sooo looking forward to spending my Sunday in my pj's.
I love the pattern on the red sparkly number. Three rounds on the blankie is good going and the flowers are very cute.
Thanks for linking up, Marg

Well it looks like you're a Happy Hooker this Sunday!

I love crocheted blankets. They just remind me of my childhood.

And your sparkly red creation is wonderful too...it was a good day for staying and fluffing around here today as well. The weather was dreadful!
