Double leaf rectangular throw

This has been finished for a few weeks but I wanted to wait until my daughters BFF actually received it before I posted pictures.  My mojo has been seriously lacking but I truly enjoyed making this while it lasted.  It's smaller than I had hoped but I only had 2 pounds of yarn and crocheted until I ran out.

Here we have BFF doing her Casper impression lolol

 One very happy child!

Caron Pounder in Leaf Green - 2 pounds

Bamboo handled Bates J hook

Measures 3 feet x 4 1/2 feet

created from leaf chart I found online 
that has been used as a scarf pattern on ravelry.

I really do wish that I had more yarn to make it at least 5 feet long.

Lost my mojo

One of the reasons I've been so bad at keeping up my blog.  It seems that I've lost my crocheting mojo.  I really hope it comes back soon.

It's 95* outside now and even with the AC going it's pretty hot for working with yarn.  I have a pineapple tablecloth that I'm working on for my hexagon shaped end table.  It's about a foot across.  I'm hoping for closer to 3 feet when it's finished but at this rate it's like pulling teeth.

I didn't want you guys to think that I've forgotten about you.  I did finish the throw for my daughters bff.  I'll get a pic of that up after it's been given.  I didn't want her to see it before she actually got it.

I know, I know...

... I've been neglecting my blog lately.  Between recovering from surgery and traveling I simply haven't had the time or desire to do much.

I would like to let you guys know that I'm planning a give-away.  I really do think you guys will like it.

I just wanted to give ya'll a heads up to keep an eye on the blog here.  I'll let you guys know when it's all set and ready!
