Granny Blanket finished!

I've been so obsessed with my tee knitting that I had a hard time finishing up this project. But I finally pushed myself to wrap up the border and get all my ends woven in. Overall I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out. It is definitely a scrappy, stash buster of a project,... Continue Reading →

Granny Blanket progress (21)

Hopefully this will be my last Granny Blanket update before it is finished. I tried out a simple spike stitch border pattern, and I liked it enough to keep going. Now I'm about halfway finished with the round. I get frustrated sometimes with crochet because I have to take lots of breaks to avoid injuring... Continue Reading →

Granny Blanket progress (20)

It's granny blanket day! I finished one border row since last week. The project is at a good point now. Either I can call it finished now, or I can add one more border row I have been planning. I think this weekend I will try out the stitch I have in mind. If I... Continue Reading →

It is Thursday, the unofficial day to check in on my granny blanket! There's big news this week: I managed to finish the body of the blanket and start in on the border. Once the white granny-stitch row is done I think I want to add another row or two in another stitch, but otherwise... Continue Reading →

Granny Blanket progress (18)

I missed a week of progress updates on my blanket because I was too busy showing off my Fluff Nugget fixes last week. There's quite a few new rows since the last time you've seen it. I really like this particular section, especially the way the browns fade into each other and are offset by... Continue Reading →

Granny Blanket progress (17)

There's not a lot of progress to show on my blanket this week, but I did at least add a couple rows. I honestly haven't spent as much time crocheting or knitting this week. I'm not sure why that is, but I am not worried about it. Hobby interest always fluctuates a bit, and in... Continue Reading →

Granny Blanket progress (16)

It's time once again for my weekly blanket update, and once again I'm in shock that I keep working on it even though it is summertime. In fact I've managed to make a fair bit of progress since last week. I enjoy the fact that this is such a mindless project, and unlike the miles... Continue Reading →

Granny Blanket progress (15)

I'm proud of myself that I still made some progress on my blanket this week. I've definitely slowed down but at least I've managed to add a few rows. Every time I finish off a ball of yarn for this project it makes me very happy. It is starting to get to a reasonable size... Continue Reading →
