Playing with Yarn and Thread ...

my favorite things to do ...

The Simply Simple Afghan is coming along nicely. This little afghan calls for 5 rows of 8 tiny grannies; 40 in all. I have 16 completed and joined (2 rows) and 21 centers completed. These do go up quickly and I think the afghan center should be completed in the next few days.

Two new small doily designs I have been working on. Up until this year I had never tried my hand at designing. Its actually almost amusing as the pieces seem to take on a direction of their own. Even if I have an idea of what I would like to try the end results are completely different.

Now to test the patterns.

And what's on your hook?


  1. You're so right glor! You start designing with one look in mind and you end up with something completely different. God's way of keeping us from being boring I always say. Love the blue doily thinga-ma-jig, LOL!!!

  2. I love thread work. I am not good at it. My fingers feel like fat little sausages everytime I try to give it a go. So I really enjoy and admire your thread work.

  3. Love the afghan, those granny squares are too cute.

  4. oh my! I love everything you are up to. Great work! Best wishe so for a beautiful and blessed weekend, Tammy

  5. Wow - you have more patience than I do - all those little granny squares to connect! But I know it will be worth the effort because it's looking lovely.

    Enjoy your weekend ;-)

  6. I don't connect them up good..but yours is beautiful and you have the knack. My hook is unactive at the moment..trying to find a daisy
    pattern for a small doily for a friend. been all over..

  7. You're so talented!
    I'm working on designing a Yoshi (from Mario Bros.) toy for hubby for Father's Day. :o)

  8. Glor,
    Thanks for the tip on how to work on blooger with the changes. it worked, and i am passing it along. Got other tips to, but have not checked them out yet.
    just another step to get where we were to start with. who can figure?
    Sometimes it is just easier to cry out for help, instead of trying to figure it out when you are exhausted. thanks
