Bah blah

It’s getting hot, which means that crochet doesn’t always sound appealing, especially with heavier yarns. But, I had to start this hat. I messed up the cables, but I didn’t feel like starting over again, so I’ll finish with my messed up cables and start a new one and do them right. Because I can.


Oh, and I did finish the footbags, but I didn’t get pictures before we packaged them up and sent them to school. Of course, J ended up coming home early on his last day of school, so he didn’t even get to pass them out (I did), but fun times just the same.

Sitting here last night, looking at the calendar I realized that there is one week of school left. One. The kiddo gets out next Wednesday at noon and that’s it.

No, no, it’s not the end of the world, but I had intended on making all of his classmates hacky sacks before the end of the year and I haven’t.even.started. I’ve got lots of yarn, but haven’t.even.started. Drama! So I got online, ordered some poly pellets and I will be spending the rest of the week crocheting little balls.

Oh, and did I mention teacher gifts? They’re supposed to be apple cozies, but I have never once checked my gauge, so they turned out small. And they aren’t the right colors. I’m on a ROLL people!

I have ’em, and therefore have to take a few days off. I can’t be too down about it, though, as I am taking pictures for a big town project, and they will be featured on the local news. Nothing wrong with that at all.

My first granny square. It’s gonna be a K-State baby granny for the local charity shop at Christmas time. So many purple and white fans around here, it should be a hit.

I may have an addiction

I love yarn. Squishing it, collecting it. It’s a terrible addiction. Even more, I like creating with it. A few new projects …
Samantha's Ripple
The ripple afghan, frogged and started over as a round ripple.

Mesh produce bag. I’ve GOT to get a better picture.

Another tiramisu baby blanket. Did the stitches a bit different this time around.

Yes, it is spring. It hit 75 degrees today, the sun is shining. Awesome.

As for me, I’m still plugging along on several different projects. Like always, because I can’t stick to just one thing. I sometimes wonder if I don’t have mild ADD. But that’s okay. It works, for now.

I’m still plugging along on the “starghan” for my parents. I had, at first, thought maybe I’d gone overboard when buying the yarn for it, but now I’m thinking I may have to pick up a skein or two more of each color. Because I want it to be big. Here’s the latest picture of it.

I also started a round ripple for … whoever ends up with it. It’s “masculine” colored, so maybe one of the boys will end up with it. I just started it up last night, but it’s working up fairly quickly.

And a work in progress.
Emma's Baby Hat
Baby hat to go with the baby blanket.

Boy Beanie
A beanie I made for my boy, only didn’t check my gauge and so it is too small.

Pattern: Basic Half-Double Crochet Hat

Mom & Dad's Starghan
Pattern: Beth’s Little Star Afghan
The “starghan” I started for mom and dad’s anniversary gift. Or a combined Mother’s Day/Father’s Day gift, depending on when I get it done.

Tiramisu Baby Blanket

Filed under: current projects, daily — Nicole @ 2:43 pm

Okay, so I completely over-estimated the time I would have to actually work on the baby blanket. But, I’m about 75% done with it, which is still moving pretty fast for me. I may even have time to crank out a matching hat and maybe even some booties before we go visit.
