July 2022 Goals

We're well and truly into summertime now. That means we're inching closer to autumn, my favorite time of year. As long as I can survive the next few hot, humid months I'll be rewarded with sweater weather!

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 →

Granny Blanket progress (14)

Here's this week's update on my granny square blanket. I haven't worked on it too much since I've been spending almost all of my time working on my Wingspan. I did at least manage to use up the last of the yellow scrap yarn from my stash. The blanket is growing nicely and is almost... Continue Reading →

Granny Blanket progress (13)

It's time for my weekly Granny Blanket update. I've slowed down on this project a bit as expected now that the weather is warmer. That doesn't mean I've stopped completely though. After my experiment of using DK yarn held double worked so well, I decided to use that trick again. This time I was using... Continue Reading →

Granny Blanket progress (12)

It's been another week of progress on my Granny Blanket. This week I got about 6 rows done. I'm actually running through my scraps a bit more quickly than anticipated, which is not a bad thing. It did lead me to use some DK weight yarn held double just to add a small bit of... Continue Reading →

Granny Blanket progress (11)

It's been at least a week since I've shown my blanket progress. I have still been working on it regularly because it is so simple and calming. It hit the size I wanted for width and was becoming unwieldy so I stopped doing rounds and started working back and forth along just one side. I'm... Continue Reading →

Granny Blanket progress (10)

I really thought I'd stop working on this blanket once the weather started warming up, but I'm happy to be wrong. It's getting quite big and I'm about to switch from doing rounds to doing stripes. Since I just guessed at the size of my starting row my proportions are not right but I can... Continue Reading →

Granny Blanket progress (9)

I've mostly been working on my sweater the past few days, but I still managed to add a couple rows to this blanket too. I'm still a little bit unsure what the final dimensions of this piece will be, but I know I'm not there yet. After another few rounds I'll need to make some... Continue Reading →
