Can I get a hot tub!!??

No, really, can I?

It's freeeezing.

Since I have nowhere to put a hot tub, I decided to start making an afghan out of some left over yarn. I need to make one for my niece Brooke, but I can't find the right colors. So while that search continues, I making another one. I have a lot of soft black yarn and a smaller amount of hot pink(it's called watermelon, I think I'd be afraid to eat a watermelon that color!) so I'm going to do random pink stripes throughout. I'm using a half double crochet stitch on this one.

I should brush up on my knitting ~cough, cough~ skills. I am horridly slow when it come to knitting. I think I do it to tight. I'll have to look into it.

***I got a request for a picture of the afghan. Be prepared to be how little is done. Have you ever tried to crochet with a baby in your lap? It is darn near impossible. The good news is Lola loves being on the floor now and no longer thinks that she is some how still attached to me. So here's what I have so far.
 Not really something to write home about, eh? I was just going to do the pink and black but I have some gray that needs to get used up so I'm doing smaller strips of that.***
