Hooking Madness

There has been a whirlwind of crafting here on the Homestead. Well, as much of a whirlwind as one can achieve when trying to keep up with the demands of a super active 6 month old wee one.

This Winter Olympics I had a simple and obvious goal…I was going to medal in the Ravelympics if it killed me! I was so disappointed when I wasn’t able to medal for my Who scarf last go around.

This time around…SUCCESS! I finally finished Finn’s ripple baby blanket (which I started back when I was knocked up).


Does He Like It?

Also, much to my hooking and swapping delight, there is another Potholder Swap! (Rav link) Hooray! I fiddled around with some patterns, but really wanted to do something different from last time. So I opted for this lovely flower motif due to it being delightfully old-timey.


If you’re not on Ravelry and want to ogle the gorgeous potholders everyone is cranking out, there is also a Flickr group.

There is other adventure afoot here on the Homestead, which I will get into in a later post. But for now the sun is shining, Finn is still a BGB (Big Giant Baby), and we’re being very productive on some very big projects.

    I cannot tell you how much I love that picture of Finnegan. I tell B all the time that she has “the sweetest face of all the faces.” I probably have to stop telling her that in a few years, lest she become vain. Though B is number 1 (for me, naturally) you can still borrow that line as needed for Finn.

  2. Naaah, I think it’s your duty as B’s mom to continue assuring her that she has the sweetest face of all the faces. Besides, it’ll always be true coming from you :)
