A Quick Note

Unfortunately my crochet funk is still going on, I did manage to get a couple squares done here and there. I've got projects with deadlines so I have to pull myself out of it.
The deadline for the current Afghans 4 Afghans campaign is May 15 so I have to get to work on the baby blanket I'm making. I ordered the yarn specifically for this project and I'm almost done, but just can't seem to work on it for more than a few minutes at a time.
I'm also trying to get some squares done for my All Crafts 4 Charity Yahoo group in baby colors this month. Like I said I've got a couple done but that's all.
I'm also in the middle of a kids blanket for my local Project Linus.
All of these projects are in bags in my craft room just waiting for me to get back to work. I've been sick this week and have barely managed to drag myself back and forth to work. I'm just staying home this weekend and (hopefully) crocheting. Or maybe I'll get some sewing done, haven't done much of that lately either.

Winner of Find Me a Pattern Contest

I called my eight year old grandson and asked him to pick a number and he picked 8! Imagine that. I need to tell him to be more creative. The winner is Rachel and this was her comment

WOW that is really nice shade of blue! Where is a capelet pattern from my blog that I think would look great with the yarn you bought! can't wait to see what you decide to make!

I STILL have not decided what to make but her pattern is in the running. Thanks to everyone for their suggestions, the patterns are all beautiful. (I'm also leaning towards some fingerless gloves, there were several suggestions for them.)
