A New Year

I don't update as often as I used to but then again, I haven't been doing as much knitting as crocheting these days.  First of all, here's a heart shaped coaster for Valentine's Day which I had a devil of a time with.....the pattern wasn't clear or concise and I ripped this out at least 4 times before finally getting it correct with the help of some of my crochet buddies on Ravelry, which I couldn't do without.

I did however, knit up a couple of these adorable easy knitted bangle bracelets for 2 of my granddaughters who I know will love them.  I'm going to knit 4 more so they each can have 3 and use different colors for each one.  I got the pattern from Ravelry, what else (and did I say how much I love that site)?

I'm making quite a bit of progress with my baby shells blanket.  This picture is not current but you can see what the pattern looks like just the same.  I'm about 1/2 to 3/4 finished now and hopefully when I post again here, the blanket will be completed.  It's actually not for any little wee one in particular but if a certain son and his wife have a baby girl (it's their first, due in late July) then it's theirs.

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and I wish all of you (if anyone is still checking out my blog) a happy, healthy, and blessed new year in 2014.
