Grandala Love

 It is Tuesday again. Time for Tallies. Lol. I had to put my Stylin Ripple away for a couple of days. I have frogged so many rows because I don't like the color selection once I have gotten it stitched up. Instead of ripping a bunch more out, I thought I had better take a little bitty break from it. I love the blanket so far and don't want to end up hating it. Hopefully I will be able to show some nice progress next week on that one.
 I had some yarn left over from my Grandala Blanket, that I made with the One-a-day group, and thought I would make a pillow  to go with the blanket. The blanket is under repair right now, the washing machine is not it's friend. I have only 3 more holes to fix and I thought making the pillow would keep me motivated.
And the other side,

I love this pillow. I am a total dork. I just looked at my couch and realized that I made every pillow in the room. For some goofy reason this makes me really happy. I would have taken a photo, but it takes ages to upload the photos to my computer and it is too dark in here right now anyway.
 I am also working on  a mystery project. I am in the Everything CAL group on Ravelry and our current Mystery CAL started last Wednesday. I would love to show it to you, but I am the moderator and have worked ahead on the project to make sure it is easy to follow. Lucky me, I have the whole pattern, he he.  I can show you the yarn I am using though.
This yarn is leftover from the first pair of Twin's Jackets I made in September when I first started blogging. It is Caron Simply Soft.
 I had this post all written up and posted. Something happened and half of the post didn't come through. For half an hour I have been trying to find where it went to. I am now giving up. Aargh.
 I will talk to everyone soon. Happy Spring.

Stash Bag

 We have been having the nicest weather all week. The last few days have been in the eighties, it is normal for us to still have some snow at this time of year. My Mom was here for a visit and since we had such lovely weather we got to go to the zoo, the park and a few walks. She was only here for 4 days, but it was a fun visit.
 Right now I am working on my Stylin Ripple, a Mystery CAL, the Multi-stitch blanket and a grandala pillow to go with my Grandala blanket. If that wasn't enough I was in a Stash Bag CAL with the Everything CAL group on Ravelry. I couldn't put it down finished it this morning. Here it is.
 I loved making this bag. It was fast and easy and I think it looks cool. It is really big, I increased the size a bit and mine is 15" or 16" across. I didn't mean for it to be so large, but now it can hold all the yarn for a substantial project. Here it is in its new home.
Looks right at home in Kashi's Corner. It is holding all my DK yarn that isn't going in my Stylin Ripple.
I hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend. And Happy Mother's Day to you in the UK.
