I know I have been MIA and it feels like it has been a month since I posted. I haven’t been doing anything too exciting, definitely not running into moose in the woods. I have been staying home more, finally getting some more of a blanket done that I started in January.
After getting half of the motifs done, back in early March, I lost all drive to complete the project. It is probably a good thing that I set a goal of having it finished by December, I just might be able to meet that one. This blanket is being made with a pattern I found on Ravelry. I am using Caron yarns in Victorian Rose, Off White, and Bone. I am considering connecting them differently than what is shown in the picture with the pattern, but I haven’t decided yet. I will leave that decision for when I gt all the motifs done.
Along with my current projects, I also have another blanket lined up. I have been wanting to make something for my nephew for a while, but couldn’t figure out what to make. I will also be using Caron yarns to make this blanket. I found a pattern that I liked, around the time I found the pattern mentioned above. I am not having second thoughts and wanting to attempt using the Entrelac crochet method to make this one. I found a crochet along on Youtube. I have also fallen in love with the look of the crocodile stitch, which I discovered through The Crochet Crowd. I started playing around, making a swatch with crochet thread. I am thinking I will make it the front on a small throw pillow. My original plan was to make a scarf out of it, but I have since decided that it would take way too long using the thread. I may end up using the stitch with yarn to do a scarf.
