I love it but you can certainly see where my projects are going to take a backseat for the 2 weeks they're here. But for now, I am just taking it as it comes and trying not to let it stress me out as, of course, I want everything nice for them when they arrive and food cooked for 4 adults and 3 children and beds and linens and a birthday cake! I'm tired already! LOL! It will be fun once they get here and all my plans to be organized will go up in the air! LOL!
As for my projects..........the one I've been working on the most is my Giant Granny Square throw/blanket but it has reached a standsill.......I ran out of yarn....I .need to order Cloud Blue and a few more colors............
Have any of you ever lined one of these crochet blankets? I would love to line it with a small floral or solid flannel so fingers and toes wouldn't poke through.
I cast on my new (also Sandra Paul/Cherry Heart pattern as the one above) socks called My First Socks but I am using new Karbonz circular needles and new yarn Phildar Folk 50.
I finished the base of the Frida basket...........
But I will continue to work on them after they go home....I will have plenty of time then with Fall and yard work winding down and the porch repaired plus, no one comes for Christmas.
This was another fun crochet project but I ran out of the cream color which was being used to "square" them up and also for joining them eventually. I have plenty now so I will be working on this while waiting for more yarn for the Giant Granny. I use Stylecraft Special DK for almost all my crocheting projects except the Frida basket was Stylecraft Chunky. It is very soft, washable and comes in so many colors and many of the crochet patterns call for it. Plus, they come out with new colors all the time.
