I Crochet

This is the "Mile A Minute" afghan leaflet. I had started an afghan from this leaflet many years ago and just came upon it in the attic. I need a couple of skeins of Red Heart Super Saver in Aran to finish it and have not come across that color so I decided to use the leftover greens I had from afghan gifts at Christmas and some Soft White I had left over. The afghan I made is the one on the lower right #5. The name is "Morning Sunrise". Unless you are standing in a spruce forest with snow on the ground and tree branches mine does not look much like a morning sunrise, but I like it. The directions called for an I hook. I used a K hook. Not such a good picture but it is what I have.

Matching bootie slippers knit with leftover yarn. Dublin Bay Socks. I have wanted to knit these for a while. i used Farmhouse Yarn, Fannie's Fingering, color Purple Rainbow. I followed the pattern and used a size 0 needle. The foot is knit in stockinette stitch, no yo's. I love them. They fit better than any other socks I have knit.
