Same Square-Different Backgrounds-Different Lighting

This is a Hexagon for one of my swaps. I was trying to take a photo that would show how pretty it is, but could not get the color right. I believe the top one is the closest, but none is quite right!

Jelly Fish

Will visiting the kids and grandkids in Portland I saw something that my DSD made. The knit Jelly Fish on the left. It really is darling! Not made in Vanna's Choice, but darling nonetheless. The one on the right was purchased - and cute, too. I love the way they gathered the iridescent ribbon - looks pretty right on!

The pattern for the knit Jelly Fish came from one of the only knit books that she could find on Amigurumi. Perhaps a Christmas hunt for more from me, huh??!???!!!

The Granddaughter's Afghans

The first photo is of Amy Jo under her Pinkalicious blanket. She was so thrilled to have such a huge one. It was just a tad shorter than her bed, but each time I visit I have vowed to bring a couple skeins of yarn to edge it (it took nearly one whole skein to go around once). So in no time the afghan will be a nice cover, and she won't "grow out of it."

The middle photo is of the girls playing peek-a-boo through the blanket!

Last photo is of hubby Sid, Alice & her afghan. I edged it in several rows of the Dusty Purple as that is one of the colors their mom loves. Alice was ambivalent about the blanket, but really thrilled with the attention Grandpa was giving her!

2 More Rose/Pinks

The first square is Circle of Friends which I love. The second one is a made up square - sort of. I was basing it on Circle of Friends and the Diamond Square previous done in this swap. It came out looking like a star rather than a square of bobbles! I then had to fill in the middle of the four V shaped dips! When I made it to 12" I had to stop, even though it tilted inward slightly. It will attach to other squares and will square-out nicely, even though it looks a little wonky now.
