First, I am STILL working on giraffe....I took a few You Tube video's on pom pom making and I made one decent one but it was too large so then I tried the fork method for smaller ones but it fell apart so after messing around for way too much time I ordered a small pom pom maker which should be here this coming week. This method worked good but it was too large for my project.
I had the needles for this part which was simple................
What I am loving about both these projects is that they use really nice yarn.....no acrylics here!
I still haven't found the other 50 gram ball of this sock yarn....I know it's here somewhere as I remember buying them. Do I dare start them with just one ball and pray I find the other? Or maybe I should just wait as I also ordered a 'bare' skein of sock yarn to dye myself and I know once I dye it I will want to cast on socks with it right away!
The CMB (Cozy Memory Blanket) did not get much attention this week.........but it got a little........
and I found more yarn for it in organizing my 'crafts room'..........I probably have enough for several of these CMB's! Excuse the lighting as the sun was shining brightly and the weather has been gorgeous here which is great for putting up outside Christmas decorations which I have yet to do plus I still have windows to wash too! But Christmas presents first!

P.S. I did try on my sweater again and I'm going for a few more inches in length before I do the bottom edging. Which reminds me I still need to weave ends in my daughter's shawl! There's so much to remember at this time of year! And only a few more weeks before I need to get it all in the mail! YIKES BATMAN!!!
