Happy 2015!

Well, the new year has begun and our few weeks of mild weather has come and gone -- with a vengeance!  The temperature hasn't yet broken 20 degrees and we've been pelted with snow, ice and wind.  Brrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

I've been burning logs non-stop for days now.  As soon as I come home from work, bam!  On go the logs and the candles on the mantlepiece, I pull out my favorite I-9 hook, my yarns and crank away.

These little do-dads I hooked up recently. I ripped a ton of old quilting fabric scraps, tied them together randomly and began to crochet in the round.  Very rustic looking, a bit like rag rugs, don't you think?   A great way to recycle bits of cloth and they make great coasters.

Well, it's getting time to find that fireplace once again.  I think I'm going to try Lucy's pattern for crocheted granny triangles, which I just found today via her Flickr site.  Something different from my "Gargantuan Granny Square" afghans I've been working on lately!
