Two Purposes


I'm busy making this blanket for Abigail to keep her warm on these cold nights. Sometimes working on a project serves two purposes, and if one of them is to keep myself warm then I'm all for progress. That's not too selfish, is it?

I, too, am working on a blanket. It certainly comes in handy doesn't it!?!?!

I've always felt the same way when crocheting an afghan for someone else :o)

By the way, the colours are gorgeous!

Beautiful colors!

Nel said...

Sounds like a plan to me!

If it is too selfish, quilters everywhere are guilty!

Terri said...

I love when an afghan gets big enough to keep me warm while crocheting!

Mimi said...

beautiful colors... are these colors in Abigails' bedroom???

Tracy said...

Mimi,
She has muted versions of these colors in her room, but I figure there's no harm in some bright accessories!

The bright colors are fun! My girls enjoy them in their room!

I am working on a shawl and it is a way to keep warm!

I think it is the blessing of working on something like this...I like your choice of colors, Tracy.

I've got a red wool shawl underway here. Of course, I'm at the point of trying to decide whether I am done, or if I need to add another half skein. Drat. I guess I need to go look at the forecast for the next week, eh? ;-)

Right there with you Tracy...right there with you...

Not selfish at all - it looks so nubby an cozy. I like the color combo, too.
