So, I’ve been stitching away over here – I am finding it is a terrific stress reliever and fast becoming my favorite past time. I’ve got a couple projects going simultaneously – thought I’d share a little peek with you.
I bought this yarn intending to make a baby blanket out of it. I kinda fudged on the sizing and now I think it’s a little bit too big for a baby blanket. Rather than ripping it out, I’m thinking about either making a shawl or a lap throw out of it. It’s a really pretty lavender with green threads throughout – and it its oh-so-soft and cuddly warm. It’s from the brand Loops & Threads – Country Loom line and the color is called Lavender Blues. (from Michaels)
The second project on the hooks right now is another baby blanket – since the first didn’t work out, I found this yarn and started another blanket. With this one I was a little more deliberate in my sizing, so I think it’s going to turn out well. It’s a Hobby Lobby brand of yarn – “I Love this Yarn” – and the color is called Sherbet Stripe.
It is coming together nicely. Easy to crochet with – even with a “helper” in my lap. I like the vivid colors – yet they are not too in-your-face for a baby blanket. Cheery and happy, I think. I’ll share the finished project once I am done.
Now I’m off to get a few more rows done before bedtime – if the “assistant” will permit.
