The following two items did not require gauging. Usually that is for garments.
The afghan is from a free tutorial from a blog, "Dada's Place" at dada4you.blogspot.com, and the block is "Primavera Flower Granny Square". You have to go to her blog she is great.
The yarn that I am using is "Red Heart Shimmer" in Cherries Jubilee and Lime they are 97% Acrylic and 3% Metallic, the "Caron Simply Soft" in White, Victorian Rose, Passion, Soft Pink and Orchid all are 100% Acrylic. I'm also using "Bernat Satin" in Banana it is also 100% Acrylic. I still need to make three more rows then add a border.
The last item that I worked on this month is a Amigurumi Dragon that I made for my oldest son for an upcoming birthday, he collects anything dragon related. It's from a pattern that I purchased online at amigurumipatterns.net called "Grow, Baby Dragon". This was my first stuffed animal but it won't be my last. I had so much fun making it. I have an ever growing list of the different ones that I want to make. The yarn that I used for this item was from "Loops & Thread" Snuggly Wuggly in Pee Wee Prints and Fresh Green both 100% Acrylic.
So for May I hope to have the afghan completed and a few more of these cute animals.
