I am hooked...

    I have been doing nothing but crocheting today,,I will get up and piddle around but within 10 minutes I am right back down in my chair putting another row or 2 in the new stripe blanket..believe me I have alot of other things I should be doing, but I am so hooked on this blanket ..I don't know why I didn't make a stripe granny before, it is so easy..and the really bad thing is as I sit here in my own little world I am thinking of many and I mean many other projects I could make with this one simple pattern. as you see in the pictures I finished the main crocheting on my purple one,,and that is a love at first site also..I just have to weave in the ends(yuck)and crochet a boarder around it..on both blankets I am using I love this yarn by hobby lobby..and last but not least a picture of my one rose bush,,isn't she pretty..well there you girls have it,,not much else happening around here today,,think I will go and crochet me some..hope you all are having a very productive day..
