I have to thank my sister for putting my time to such good use!

I had gotten out of the habit of crocheting to keep my hands out of the snack foods while watching T.V. in recent years, but still had huge rubber-maid containers full of never-used yarn and half-completed projects that I'd been moving around from house to house without opening since the early 2000s, so Sis dragged them up from her basement one by one, asking if I couldn't put them to use while forced to be off my feet (and, if I wasn't going to use them, then couldn't she donate them to Good Will or something, rather than let them sit taking up space for another 10 years?). With that motivation, I finally got cracking again and rediscovered my enjoyment of that simple craft.

Since completing the afghan above, I've slowed down a bit (as I regained some of my ability to stand and walk without too much discomfort), but I've still turned out a quick 'baby blanket' in complimentary colors for our new dog (who actually makes use of it as a comforting surface to lie or or something to burrow under) and a large lap-sized afghan in ordinary polyester yarn that my Dad said he'd like to have to cover his lap and feet when he's sitting in his recliner.
