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.

That is just awesome. I'm a big fan of skills that are both artistic and practical (I'm a cook, myself).
