It's been awhile since I've done a 'crafty' post, so I think I shall do one....
or maybe two!
Back in March, of 2015, when I was still living in a basement room, I dug out some yarn from my stash (which I will not even attempt to show you!) See that material...well I love those colors. I was hoping to find some stash to match that material....and I did!
Since that 'digging out of stash' yarn, I have made that material into pillows for
I narrowed down the colors, consulted with my crochet gurus, and decided to use these colors to make a blanket....which I do not need. How many crochet blankets does one household with two people need? Here's the thing....you have to make a blanket while in crochet group because you cannot chit-chat the entire time you are in group and THINK. You need mindless blanket work.
Which left this pattern out because I made three of them whilst paying attention, and only one came out halfway decent! Too hard to make a whole blanket out of this, which is what I had originally thought. Because....and I say this with granny square love in my heart....I feel as though I cannot make one more granny square blanket and change colors on every row.
So I've come up with this so far, and herein lies the problem with this, besides that it is a little wonky, and I'm hoping it will straighten out.
What color to use
What pattern to use
How many rows of double
When do I add the yellow and green (the brightest colors)
And then it makes it hard to chit-chat.
I'm thinking because I have no plan for this blanket.
I have a lot more colors to use.....and I'm winging it.
I need a plan!
Oh...and I'm reading A book by Susan Wittig Albert called Bittersweet. If you love herbs, and you love mysteries, then you should read this series of books. It's about an herb shop owner named China
Bayles who is always solving a mystery with the help of her friend and business owner Ruby Wilcox. Start with the first book, Thyme of Death. They're a lot more fun to read that way. You will learn about herbs, and she always puts a few recipes in the book as well. They are fun reads with interesting herbal facts.
And lastly, I'm joining Ginny from "Small Things" blog on a yarn along. Click to find out what others are knitting, crocheting, and reading.
