I Won and Grannies and Ripples Oh My!!

I am so excited to show you what I won from Debi at Dly's Hooks and Yarn. She had a Giveaway and I won. Yay! Thank you so much Debi!!! 
Debi is always so generous...sharing patterns, commenting on blogs, etc. If you haven't been to her blog you must go there and check out her lovely posts. 

Well... here it is...

Three Purse Handles and I needed these! I made a purse in 2010 and never got handles for it. Now I will have a Tah Dah soon showing you my new purse! 

And this sweet little note from Debi!

Thank you Debi!!

Now for more reveals...

My first square from the Crochet a Block a Month CAL I joined. This one is called 16 Circles. This is January's 6" block. I have to say this was a very hard pattern to follow but...I beat it by not reading the instructions and looking at the pictures. Not for beginners for sure. I need to block it so some of the circles don't look so wonky! Lol!

Here is the 12" square for the CBAM  CAL  for January. This one is called More V's Please on Ravelry.

Now...I should have 8 grannies done for the Granny a Day 2012 CAL well, I only have three...but that's okay, I am doing what I can and I will still have a lot of grannies at then end of the year!

And last but certainly not least...I have made some progress on my Rainbow Ripple! I love this yarn and working on this is very smooth and satisfying. The StyleCraft DK yarn is a dream, so light and NEVER SPLITS! The colors are yummy and it is very peaceful to work on.

Well, that's it for today. I hope you all have a great week and Happy Crocheting!
