Today is the FIRST day of the rest of your life!

Today was a good day - except I don't have any more photos to show for it....YET.

I'm about one third the way through a lovely boys sweater, size 3 month which is from JustCrochet. As it isn't for a new-born, I am using a light aqua green with the borders in cream. Looks really cute! A grand nephew was born in July so will be sending it to him by the end of the week.

I finally figured out what to do with the little sweater I made for a little girl (previous post) - a young Mennonite girl who use to work for us had a baby girl the day after my birthday (I had been hoping!). She will be 3 months old this week, so off it will go to her. I need to visit them anyway, and this is as good an excuse as any.

I'm beginning to think that I could design a pattern for the body of another boys sweater, so think I'll give it a try later this week. Should be fun!

I also finished my first of two Angel Squares. This one is really lovely, too. I made it up :o) and have named it after the person who will be getting it. Photos to follow soon. I hope to finish the other one quickly and get them on their way.

Finally, the photo is of the Guernsey Afghan from "Vanna's Afghans All Through The House" I have started which will be for my hubby. I have finished the block in Terracotta (Vanna's Choice) and started the few rows that separate this block from the next block in Sweet Pea (from Baby Vanna's Choice). Hubby is colored blind and he can see these colors best. However, I don't know that I will be able to stomach using this green in the afghan! I may just switch the Sweet Pea for Duckie (a bright yellow) and just continue all the blocks in the Terracotta. We shall see. I'm using a J hook and this is working up nice and heavy which will take care of his complaint regarding the last one I made for him - too holey and too lightweight!

We are having wonderfully cool weather for this time of year. Here's hoping that you are too!
