my stash of crochet hooks were left neglected,
for TWO YEARS.
so much time passed
that i started purging
most of my yarn.
then the unexpected announcement
of a late in life bebe
and i took my hooks out of retirement.
a worthwhile reason,
i used this pattern,
which i was NOT a fan of.
happy october friends,
what have you been up to?
previous crochet projects:
broomstick lace infinity cowl
ombre granny square baby blanket
starburst baby blanket
minecraft creeper hat
a super quick post
you probably think we’re not cooking much these days,
what with all the crafty stuff
i’ve been posting lately.
in a way, you’re right
it’s been mainly raw csa salads
and playing with yarn this summer
a baby blanket for a new addition to the group
baby fig made her appearance this week early
my excitement for her existence,
and for fig mama’s venture into mommyhood
is a stark contrast to how i feel about motherhood in general.
this bebe will be doted on,
and i already have a Date scheduled with her.
dw has diaper duty though.
the pattern i used was poorly written so i will just link to some granny square patterns i searched for on craftgawker.
if you want to follow along on my yarn adventure, i do have a ravelry account.
are you working on anything crafty, yarn or otherwise?
i’ve got another blanket to complete,
and then it’ll be scarf and cowl season…
i say it often
but these days i find myself
there is always a project
i reach for my yarn
and hook by rote
and if i’m not,
i’m searching for a pattern
to get immersed in
this winter has allowed for much
a pot of soup simmering
dw beside me,
either doing a crossword puzzle
my fingers tangled in yarn
sometimes i’ll stop
to stretch overtired wrists
and then back at it
this blanket was part of
my contribution for the
we had at work this week
for the main color, i used caron’s one pound yarn in cream (or maybe it’s off white…)
for the trim/border, i used bernat’s baby coordinates in baby pink
i used a J-hook
i used this pattern, which was so easy to memorize
fyi: mini elephant pillow is Monsignor Boh Regard Nguyen, made by the lovely wendi of Bon Appetit Hon.
my other crocheted creations:
minecraft skull hats
happy weekend friends!
