More Crocheting Done at the Hospital This Week

Having spent the last week at the hospital with a couple of family members, I managed to get some crochet time in. I had posted previously about finishing the stockings and adding another 110 squares to the Nana Afghan, but I also got a few other things done (or added to).

I made a project that I've been wanting to try for quite some time now. It's the Tea Wrap on the lionbrand site. I tried to post a link but lionbrand wasn't coming up for me this morning. I'm not sure why. I used one skein of Caron's Simply Soft yarn (in black) and a N hook. This will be a gift for a family friend. This is the view of what it looks like when you wear the "V" to the back. (Small T wants me to remind the viewers that she just got out of the hospital, so please don't look at her appearance.)

This is the view if you wear the "V" at the front. I like it this way.

I also managed to add a few more Nana Squares to the pile. This photo doesn't show all of them. My current running total is:
8 Spring Green
4 Real Teal
6 Pumpkin
9 Cherry Red
10 Bright Yellow
5 (Light Brown?) I'm not sure of the name.
6 Pale Green
That's 48 squares so far. Out of 110 that I need.

And last but not least, I finally added a few more rows to the Majestic Afghan. I added a total of 10 red rows and 8 purple rows. If you remember, this afghan will have the stripes running vertically. And in this photo, the afghan is folded in half, so you aren't seeing all of it.
That's it for the week of hospital crocheting.
