I can't believe it's been a month since I posted here. I really haven't been doing much crocheting lately. I'm sure that will change eventually, but right now I've been enjoying the Christmas season, watching Christmas movies, buying Christmas gifts. I've also jumped aboard the coloring craze and one cannot color and crochet at the same time. LOL

Anyway, I'm still working slowly on the rocket afghan. Here is where I am on it currently. The rest will be the colored yo-yos and more black squares surrounding the completed area. Yes, there are a ton of tails that will need to be woven in. I have tried to do all the center tails on each square to at least reduce them somewhat. 

I'm pleased with how it's coming along. The yo-yos will make quite a difference I think, but still many black squares to make before it's ready for that.

As to any other crochet news, if I find anything of interest I generally post it to the Facebook page. The last thing I posted there was the video I added to my YouTube channel regarding filet crochet. It's not a new video but one I made some time ago and which was requested by a visitor. A Fleur de lis chart filet pattern has been added to Crochet Cabana as well (under Kate Smith).

I have also started using the old Crafty Corral to post about my coloring adventures. If you are interested in that, the link is 

I hope all of you have a very Merry Christmas, or whatever holiday you celebrate during this time. Be safe if you travel the roads - don't drink and drive. Set your patience level to high and enjoy the wonderful companionship of family and friends.  It's a stressful time of year for many, so do remember those who are alone or infirm if you are able.

Happy crocheting!
