One A Day - Tuesday's Tallies

One A Day is hosted by Carole at her blog, Gingerbread Girl and at Ravelry.

My original One A Day project is complete.  As I said in my post two weeks ago (sorry I didn't post last week.  I was way too excited about going to see Duran Duran in concert) I made the mistake of not purchasing enough yarn for my project.  So, the blanket that was meant for our king sized bed is now a rather large throw for our bed or the couch.  And may I just say that it is getting a lot of use! It makes me very happy seeing this - my first blanket - being cuddled with and gracing our home with color.  Here are some pictures:

My husband asked for the black and I wasn't sure about it but want him to feel that this is his blanket, too.  Now, I absolutely love the black.

Stretched across the couch.  Please ignore how yucky the couch is - thank you.

One of the most popular places to find the blanket - spread across my daughters and I during our nightly story time.

These are the hexagons I learned how to make.  They were meant to be my next One A Day project.  However, they are being put on hold for a bit.  My girls and I were looking at magazines in Barnes and Noble.  I came across the prettiest afghans in a crochet magazine.  They are so easy, too.  THey are just blocks of alternating colors.  My girls fell in love with them and asked me to make each of them one in their favorite colors.  Of course I said yes.  What they don't know is that I've already started them.  I will be giving the blankets to them for Christmas.  I can't wait!

Here is the start of the one for my older daughter - Miss O.  She loves all shades of blue. 

And here is the start of the one for my younger daughter - Miss B.  She loves Hello Kitty so hers will be pink, black and white.

Thank you for visiting.  I hope you all have a wonderful, happy and colorful week!
