UFO and WIPs day

Today is finish those UFOs and WiPs day! Here is what I've done thus far.

First, the cowl. I made this large black rectangle, intending it to be a hood to attach to a scarf, but I didn't like the way that came out. Thinking on it, I decided it could be a cowl. And so it is. Laid flat it is about 14" each side, so the rectangle would have been approximately 28", probably slightly more.

I chained 76 and worked use Lisa's Easy Baby Blanket pattern because that is what I used to make the scarf it was intended to go with.

Next is the Jacob's Ladder, which I finally finished. I wove the tails in and finished the black border. Final measurement is 40" x 43 1/2". This is going to the Alzheimer research project.

Here is a white square, about 10". I used daughter's cross-stitch pattern which I love. I think it is my new favorite square pattern. This square is heading to Sandy for the Give a Square project, in association with the Bridge and Beyond project. Squares may be from 7" to 10".

Here is a cocoon I started some time ago and finally sewed the ends in and will send it out to God's Tiny Angels. It is made with #3 Herrschners Baby Yarn. To make this I just made a circle like I was going to make a hat, increasing for 7 rounds, then I worked straight dc for two rounds. Then I worked (2 dc, fpdc) around. As far as I can remember I just made it up as I went along, but it was a while back and my memory is not that great. I didn't have a pattern with it and I usually print them up and put them with the UFO so I can remember hook size etc when I get back to it.

The bottom measures about 9" and from the last dc round to the top it is about 13".

Next up is a scarf made in three colors. Of course I forgot to measure it, though I did measure it a few days ago - of course I can't remember what it was. LOL Anyway, this is made with the Carolyn Toups yarn, donated after she passed away. I believe this is about the last of that yarn. There is a little of the light pink color left, enough for a bit of grannies or yo-yos.

Here is a preemie round ripple. It measures about 21 1/2" from point to point. This was a kit I bought from Herrschner's before our trip to Tennessee, which was in 2009. I began this ghan then. I decided it would never be finished as a full size baby afghan, so I finished it off as a preemie and it will also go to God's Tiny Angels.  I used the remaining blue yarn for the cocoon pictured above.

Also going out this week will be the two Special Olympics scarves finished most recently. You can read about them in previous posts.

That's all for now. I have more UFOs and WIPs to get to!

Happy crocheting!
