Special Olympics Scarves, Mini Projects and What I'm Reading


These are my pink/red squares, showing how I will order the colors three different ways.

I love these shades even though I never used to like pink and red. I do now though. I've been trying to use them more.

These are what I've made so far. I still dislike the orange a bit but after two trips to the store I've concluded there needs to be a lot more shades of orange made! 

I'm hoping that when it's all put together maybe they will blend okay.

Other than that I like it and I try to make a couple squares a night.

I did sidetrack a little, I made a little soap spa coat for myself and one for my mother in law.

Haven't used it yet as I want to go buy some Indigo Wild soap to put in it.

 Ah, my latest purchase. I feel like I've been waiting a long time for this to come out. 

I will wait as I have to finish what I'm already reading.
 This is what I'm reading right now. I watched the movie first, which was good but I will always take books over movies. They just don't compare!

I am already eyeballing another book called The Thirteen Hallows. I have hinted to my husband about it so we'll see.
These are a couple stars for the garland I want to make. Easy pattern and I like the style.

I've also decided to participate in the special olympics scarves project. 

Details are on red hearts web site. I'm off now to grab my brother and get some yarn to start this with.

Happy crocheting!!!
