I decided to make an afghan for the yet to be born sister of the little girl I watched, and I couldn't NOT make her something too so I made her dolly a blanket! I had this allllmost done for awhile and finished it today. I accidentally pulled my yarn and it 'jumped' into my tea this morning. I rinsed it out and continued. I shall not be deterred!!

The origional design had some beading, but I took that out as it was driving me crazy trying to hold all the loops. The next time I make them, and have the correct bead size, I can't wait to make some nifty additions. These are beautiful and sleek earrings. They were also pretty cheap to make. Maybe I should set up an Etsy shop with all this stuff that I'm making...
Chain link earrings get along well with my snuggie! Here is a picture with Mr. Frog
