Granny Blanket progress (3)

This project is just so easy to pick up and put down that I keep gravitating toward it. It is growing slowly but I'm really loving having a simple crochet project around when I need it. It's also nice that there are way less ends to weave in than my last big blanket project. I'm... Continue Reading →

Granny Blanket progress (2)

I've added a few more rounds to this blanket. I definitely enjoy the process more now that I have stopped stressing about a color scheme or running out of yarn. I just work until I am bored or I run out of yarn, then grab a new color. The other nice thing I realized is... Continue Reading →

Granny Blanket progress

This is a really nice project for watching tv or listening to podcasts. Even though I don't crochet as much as I used to, I am still more comfortable with it than knitting. I have an easier time working without looking at my hands all the time when I am crocheting. I'm also trying very... Continue Reading →

Granny Blanket started

I began this project over the weekend after several false starts. I really wanted to make another crochet blanket to use up my acrylic stash, but couldn't decide on a pattern. Finally I settled on the humble granny stitch because it is relaxing and mindless. My goal with this blanket is to use up some... Continue Reading →

February 2022 Goals

Tiny Agender Pride Kitty

I got a batch of fingering weight cotton yarn over the holidays and realized I had the perfect colors to make something with the agender pride flag. I finally decided on this tiny kitty. It is absolutely one of the tiniest amigurumi projects I've ever done, at only about 2.5 inches tall. This project took... Continue Reading →

January 2022 Goals

2021 was such a strange year. Things got better but never quite back to "normal". I got a new job and have still not met most of my coworkers in person yet. But at least I got a ton of knitting done and made quite a few projects that I am really proud of. Completed... Continue Reading →

Hex Blanket finished!!!

I did it! I managed to get this blanket finished before the end of the year! This is pretty much all I have been working on over my winter break, but it has been worth it. I am quite pleased with how this turned out. It used up a ton of my acrylic yarn and... Continue Reading →

Hex Blanket progress (12)

The Hex Blanket is still inching along. I got quite a few more hexes joined and have pinned the next batch into place. There's only 16 more hexes left to join now in total. At this point I think I will count this blanket as "finished" for the year if I can get everything joined... Continue Reading →

Hex Blanket progress (11)

I have so much momentum on this blanket all of a sudden and it's great! Over the last few days I've finished making the last few hexes I need to complete the project. I decided to use identical hexes for the corners as a small accent. There's still a ton of yarn left in some... Continue Reading →

Hex Blanket progress (10)

I actually made some very solid progress on my blanket over the weekend. I finished attaching the last full round of hexes, and started filling in the ends a bit so the finished blanket will be longer than it is wide. At this point the length and width are at their finished sizes and I... Continue Reading →
