I started it last Fall ... I even Blogged about it!
Granny Squares + Join As You Go = Hooking Gratification.
I did not darn in the yarn ends as I went along so it was not
Instant Hooking Gratification.
PSA ... Darn in Ends as You Go!
Yarn: Wool Ease purchased at an AC Moore in Delaware.
Color names ... Unknown. Ball bands clutter up my project bag so they are promptly thrown away. =)
The color order was random ... well, sort of random!
Hook: I'm sure you guessed it ... Susan Bates H hook. =)
Pattern: Granny Squares ... my favorite Tutorial is at The Purl Bee.
Do you see the "Oops!" ???
Thanks for letting me share another project with you. =)
The comments you leave Bring me Cheer and Brighten my Day!
Tee-Hee ... I thought I was pretty clever coming up with that name. =) =) =)
I am going to a baby shower on Saturday and just found out the Mama is having a BOY. I took the leftover circles from the Fiesta Blanket, crocheted them together with navy and bright blue yarn, and added a colorful border.
Do you think I was successful???? I'm not sure since there are small bits of purple and pink but I think I definitely nailed Gender Neutral. =)
I started this blanket in April or May as a Vintage Vertical Stripe but I wasn't feeling the Love so I tucked it away for the Summer. =) The beginning of August I decided it must be Frogged!! Abigail and I spent a morning unraveling each row and carefully rolling all that yarn into neat little balls to be used on another project.
One of my favorite blogs is Signed with an Owl and Kate has a wonderful tutorial for this Circle in a Square block. Three weeks of hooking and the blanket is D.O.N.E. I've never made a blanket so fast and I am so happy-happy-happy!!!!
The border is my favorite part!
Oh my ... isn't it BeAuTiFuL????? I made this for a Very Special Person's Birthday Present. Alas, that is not until December but I am afraid if I keep it in my house much longer I will not be able to part with it. So I will wrap it up in plastic, shove it into a Flat Mailer Box and send it to her this afternoon. =)
Now for all the Important Details. =)
YARN - Stylecraft Special DK in 13 different colors. I bought all the Lucy colors from Deramores and used those for this blanket.
In the spirit of trying to Return to a Routine , I am going to post my meal ideas for the week. =)
Lasagna Casserole or Baked Ziti:
There is a jar of sauce in the refrigerator that did not seal in the water bath canner so I will use that before it goes bad. I bought a carton of cottage cheese at Aldi on Saturday and I always have dry pasta on hand.
Quiche with Bacon:
I have a lot of eggs and a bit of bacon that needs to be used up, so I thought "Let's make a quiche." I need a recipe, though, as I've never made quiche. =)
Every Monday I mix up a batch of pizza dough. It sits out on the counter all day to rise and then I pop it in the refrigerator to use sometime during the week. If we aren't in the mood for pizza, I can use the dough for homemade hot pockets.
Chicken Noodle Soup with Grilled Cheese:
It is September so I can make soup once again. =) Mr. K loves it ... I love it ... Abigail doesn't, so that's why I serve it with Grilled Cheese.
Pancakes and Scrambled Eggs:
The week wouldn't be complete without a Brinner Meal. I like to make a Big Batch of Pancakes so that there is leftovers for the following morning's breakfast.
