I whipped this up as a test from a pattern with The Crochet Crowd. Instead of whip stitching together its is flat brads crochet.
I like how it lays better than a whip stitch or crocheting the squares together.
After a massive clean and looking at projects that need finished. I have been working on 1 or 2 along with a current project.
2 projects I have worked myself out of yarn. Those are put away until I can go shopping.
I got 2 orders for Virus blankets that will sort themselves out in time. I try to spend some time each day on the first blanket that is going. I use television shows to measure the work time. A little bit of work each day is better than nothing.
My stash is not as big as I thought it was but I can see it growing again with needing stuff to finish current projects.
After a massive clean a few weeks ago it was disheartening that I had found so many things not finished.
To be honest I was really disappointed in myself. How had I let things get so bad?
One project was 15 years old and NOT DONE.
I have really resigned myself to finishing before starting more. Some I have stopped to make wedding or baby presents that had worked up quick.
Poor hubby is still waiting on his sweater but I am working on a blanket for him for fall, which I know he will use.
Still nothing for me. Hubby always complains that too much goes out the door and nothing is mine but I am trying to take care of that one. I did start a blanket for me, now if it gets finished or not by fall that is another story.
Am I the only one who looks at something on YouTube and goes “I got to try that?”
If I would just stay off there long enough to finish, just maybe. .
I wound up during this past week looking at what is in my stash. How much is there and what needs finished. I do have some stuff started for gifts but I need to also get better at finishing things.
5 point Star – in blue for my grandson
I still have Jake’s blanket to finish and gifts to some of the Crows who have or are getting married.
I was giving 3 big bags last year with unfinished blankets and I am not sure what to do. Finish or frog them out, or create my own?
Phil make sure he points out that I don’t do anything for us and maybe that is what this year is supposed to be.
Finish those works in progress and work on projects for us
It’s all up to me.
For those of you were are new to my blog, when I turned 50, instead of a freak out I decided to turn it into a positive.
I spend the week looking at those patterns on my list that I have not had the nerve to try.
I have spent the last couple of days working on my scrap Works in Progress.
5 Point Star – Mikey has a great pattern and it is alot easier than it looks
Moss stitch – I am using a single crochet but you can also do a double crochet
Timeless memories – just getting started but it is a simple pattern. Front Post Crochet is a new one for me.
The blanket in the picture was gong on but I was starting to have real doubts. After a chat to the hubby I grabbed the knitting needles and have started again.
Normally I wold start new color at one of the ends of the row but this time have decided to just knit what I have already crocheted.
How can I ever say “THANKS” for your love and support, over the year.
I love reading what your up to playing with yarn and what you have created.
I am taking some time off blogging over the holidays but will be madly knitting and crocheting my fingers to the bone with lots to show you in the new year.
My Skype is always on if you ever want to pop in for a visit
hugs yarn weavers. Have a super holidays and see you in 2017
