Secret Doings

It's that time of year again when there are secret doings happening. I obviously can't post pictures of what I have been working on but let's say that the list I made myself Friday morning of what I wanted to accomplish was just soooooo under what I have accomplished! And today I am going to try to start two more things which are quick doings.

Here's what I made Alma for her birthday (last Sunday) because she likes the color green and I liked the pattern:

I can't post pictures, either, of what I am sending in Kaylee's package. I will say that since Susan doesn't read my blog I finished a scarflet for her. Didn't take a picture before I wrapped it but I took a picture of the package (see-through bag) but you can't really see it. I used black/white self striping angel hair yarn as an experiment. I like how it turned out.

I can say that today's project will be to cast on a scarf. I was going to make a scarflet then decided to make another one of those fluffy scarves that you make by casting on 10 stitches on size 35 needles. I can finish that in a week or less. I know it's only supposed to be a day or two but I have other things I need to make which I need to mail so they will probably take priority.

I've been busy. I don't think my hands have stopped all weekend. Boy were they stiff this morning! I am typing instead of crocheting or knitting just to get some flexibility back into the hands. A cup of coffee, a bit of blogging, a bit of twittering and maybe a game or two at Pogo (I am such a Pogo addict!).

I can't wait to be able to post pictures after the holidays of what was made for Matt and others. But until then, know that I am so busy crafting you'd be amazed at what speed I'm working! And *I* am amazed at how wonderfully happy all of this is making me.
